So sceptical about all of it then

Can't argue the price for the spec. Only thing that puts me off is the refurb. If that doesn't bother you then its a good deal.

They both 1060 3GB though, which is poor compared to the the 1060 6GB version

Until you run out of VRAM...

Until you run out of VRAM...


At which point a GTX 1060 6gb probably can't perform at the settings you want to use anyway...
My goodness that's ugly. I'd run it in a cupboard rather than look at it ...

Can this run games on high settings like forza 7? If so I may sell my Xbox One X to get this

From the article you posted

"In the here and now, the three gig GTX 1060 is a good card with excellent performance at its £189/$199 price-point, but its VRAM allocation may well hit its limits more quickly than the four gigs found in the AMD RX 470 and its successor. None of the new wave of sub-£200/$200 graphics cards should be entirely ruled out, and this pared back GTX 1060 still packs plenty of punch - but investing just a little extra in the GTX 1060 6GB would be our recommendation."


Although that Trident does look nice. Wonder how noisy it is.

I've always loved the Predator cases, but prebuilt never offers great value for money

The trident is silent, all the exhaust vents are open and plenty of airflow. Not sure how upgradeable it is though with the built in PSU.
Looking at the picture, I thought this was a deal for tyres

Pretty much not upgradeable unfortunately
I used to have one of these...ended up having to return it because the power on button kept breaking. Got a pcspecialist one instead.
It'll probably have the marginally better i5-7400 in it, not the advertised i5-6400.
