Seems pretty good right now, GPUs are still through the roof This one has an AIO cooler as well and is a similar spec to one I posted last month, only this is £100 cheaper. Personal preference, but I prefer this case and if you look below the cable management looks darn tidy as well (I hate messy cables)

The motherboard isn't just a random brand you've never heard of either, which is defo a plus, it's the ASUS Prime Z270-P

It'll nail anything you throw at it and then some, there's a checker to on the product page to see which games run, you won't be needing that... Haha. (inb4 Minecaft/Crysis comments) the refurbs of this machine are the same price elsewhere, so it's not looking too shabby at all with the 3 year warranty.

Sad times for PC gamers.
Why can't bloody consoles coin farm!

Cpu's seem reasonable, motherboards and DDR4 are a little crazy if wanting 8th gen i7.
I'm so stubborn playing on i7 2600k and ddr3 to pay these prices atm.

To think I got a 1080ti for £240 (after selling my 1070 warranty replacement for a 980ti)

*Edit
Voted hot, as like you say in current market it's decent value.

Nothing in the current climate as you would probably hose the whole budget on memory and gpu. It's a rubbish time to build a PC. If Nvidia and AMD don't get their collective fingers out of their butts and do something to help PC builders and gamers I predict a mass exodus to consoles as they just make so much more sense financially.

The 2200G and 2400G are good for what they are but AMD REALLY needs to put out a truly powerful APU (maybe in the £300-£400 range) to give a real GPU alternative or just make a LOT more GPUs....
The owner of this could nail anything except pussy. Jokes I would love a pc like this I expect my wife wouldn't.

16GB Ram? Pfft you need at least 128GB to run team fortress.
Cold. No 1090Ti 16GB. No 9th Gen LattéMocha Pond Processor with triple hyper threading i11

For £1.5k I’m expecting liquid hydrogen cooling at the least? What has hukd turned into...

This looks really good, but what's the catch? Is there any weak point in this?

Also, does anyone know when the offer will end?

What do you mean you got it for £240

Are you saying you sold your GTX 1070 and you bought a GTX 1080TI for a extra £240?
you also said you sold a 1070 for a 980ti? So what about the 1080ti? If you sell a warranty replacement its not free money since your just replacing the item that you bought

I'm Confused
That case is ugly

I'm not too picky but if I'm paying that much I want a decent case

i think his 980ti broke and they replaced it on rma with a 1070 which he sold
cold no rgb .... this is a pretty nice pc for the money based on the prices of the hardware now. shame the case looks like a value version of the coolermaster haf x from 10 years ago. HEAT

My 980ti broke, I sent off for warranty with evga.
Got a 1070 back, Sold it on eBay for £330 (1070)
Bought a 1080ti from very last year with £100 credited back to my account and also got £20 odd back in cashback.
Plus £35 back because very didn't give me the Destiny 2 code within time, but they sent it a few weeks after :-D

This will be way way way more than adequate, this is a top end PC, those games can be played on low end PCs. This PC will be good for years.

,Just looked at the specs required to play fortnite and they are actually quite low ,this PC is very powerful but they say that this
  • Nvidia GTX 660 or AMD Radeon HD 7870 equivalent DX11 GPU
  • 2 GByte VRAM
  • Core i5 2.8 Ghz
  • 8 GByte RAM
  • Windows 7/8/10 64-bit
  • Is enough to run the game ,very low specs indeed ,very low but cannot imagine what it would look like ,to be honest an X box or playstation would be ideal for this type of gaming and you could save a lot of money ,enough to start building your own PC ,all the best hope that helps !

you will spend more, Gpu alone cost 500, 16 gb ram 100, HDD 100, cpu 250, psu 100, case 50, mobo 100, cooler 80, ssd 120, then there's windows 10, warranty and delivery and you dont have to shop bargains for parts and do anything except plug it in and own it.
i would get a 8700k

all i'm waiting now is probably more ram. i bought only 8gb because i thought "i'll wait for the price drop and buy 16gb" and it seems that the price has only gone higher on ddr4. also i'd probably like the upgrade my 980ti to something when the next gen nvidia cards come out

Terrible time atm when you look at previous prices.
I'm just Gunna ride the storm out, as it will come down.
Mine plays pretty everything for fun and tempted to overclock the hell out of my 2600k.
Shes like a fine wine in a way. Think my main parts are like 8 years old.
Bought it with a GTX 580
I have this case. Its a beast. Cable management options are immense! There is practically nothing on show. There is so much room that you cant really go wrong. The quick release bays are a godsend too. As is the top loading hard drive bay.
Case is damn ugly but not a bad spec at all considering the price. I built a similar spec machine at the end of last year for a lot more.

Thanks that's what I would mainly use it for,I use word now and again also and surfing the web
I am waiting for someone who will say it is expensive you can build it cheaper than this, this is link for parts do it yourself self, no noone yet?
But can it run Roblox?
Nice build, very capable. Decent price. Case though. Looks like a total dust magnet, removal filters?
