This deal is expired. Here are some options that might interest you:

I am not particularly informed about gaming PCs but this refurbished unit looks a good deal at first glance. You might want to extend the warranty.

Here's the description of the A2 condition: A2 products may have cosmetic scratches and minor marks. All products are tested and in good working order.

There is a higher graded refurb unit also available for a bit more at £679.97. You can see that one at this link: laptopsdirect.co.uk/ref…asp

Hope it helps someone! And yes I know there are new processors out.

Specs list 1660 Ti but this has the regular 1660 model. Price isn't too bad, but there won't be much of a warranty and their support is terrible. The ram is also only 8GB and 2400Mhz which is terrible for Ryzen. Finally this most likely uses a very budget A320 board.

Personally would avoid.
You could buy new for roughly the same

Mobo £80

Those sound like fair points! It is tricky finding pre-builds in the £500-650 range from what I can see.

That's true, sometimes you do get a deal but that's rather rare with pre-built systems. A friend has been debating starting up a business which would essentailly be an equivalent to NZXT BLD, with the aim of providing a quality service at a fair price, which the majority of pre-built sellers lack. I suggseted he go for it as NZXT BLD is actually pretty good in comaprison to the others in the US.

Will it make a huge difference for solely gaming?

No, maybe in a year or 2 it might start to show a bit more (not that significant mind you) but by then you can upgrade to a Ryzen 4600 or something. You could also grab a 1660 Super for ~£200 sometimes when a deal pops up.

Eh, it's OK. 2400mhz RAM is a bit crap, so I'd avoid it. PSU is probably bad as well

I wouldn't say £640 is roughly the same price as £520

I can never get this to paste properly, and someone with more up to date knowledge could probably get some better parts and still bring the price down.

It's already built and comes with Windows installed. Fair enough you may be happy to do that yourself but there are still those who aren't for one reason or another.

Just ask some one to build one for you that is what a bunch of people i know do.

The problem with these sort of builds as well is they use low end parts and as others said board like a a320 no one should be touching those boards they are awful even the manufactures will tell you this when talking to them at events.
