Great deal and would be tempted simply for the processor and hard drive. that said though, the motherboard is likely to be cheap, the ram slow too.

I wonder how good the power supply would be??
Wonder if it even has any PCI-E X16 slots....would be a decent 1080p gaming machine if you throw in a GTX 1050ti.

8.1 windows?

The processor is worth 299 on its own lol, great deal. these wont be here in a few minutes.

​Windows 8.1 is still new but you can still get a free Windows 10 upgrade through Microsoft website.

I can't believe in the 10-ish minutes I've been oohing and ahhing and finally pressed 'buy it now', no one else has bought one.

Gone now. Still, the deal lasted way longer than I expected.

I went to buy it 5 mins ago and it was gone from my basket

Whatever you do don't get a 1050Ti! Its about 20% overpriced. RX460 is a much better option at the same price point!!

​Well if it goes for the right price I think Grade C is acceptable if your just going to use the PC for parts as the processor costs more than £299 as its an i7.

From what I can gather other Zoostorm using that chassis seem to use the Asus H110M-A, which features a PCI-E slot.

With that 500w PSU you'd be fine with any low/middling TDP card, I'd drop a RX 480 or 1060 3GB in there personally and have a nice 1080p setup. The CPU is still up there with the best of them.

The wattage of the PSU isn't what matters. With pre-built PC's the PSU's are often not made by a reputable maker. As such they are not very efficient and often can lead to damage to other components in the long run. If you're going to add a new GPU to this build I would 100% replace the PSU. And remember, when replacing a PSU you need to replace all of the current cables with the ones that come with the new PSU.

says 1050ti beats 460 for same power consumption. pricer though. but not bad value

You're making a large number of assumptions here. I agree a better PSU is always going to be of higher quality, but that is not to say that using a sensible low powered card in a system such as this is unwise.

HP, Dell, Lenovo ship millions of machines a year with generic PSU equipped with numerous GPU, do you think they've all got it wrong and are selling a product unfit for purpose because warranty replacements are good for their business? There's best practice and there's good enough, I'd suggest that unless you know otherwise a 500w PSU of even generic description will be good enough to power the cards I described.

If they experience instability when doing a burn-in test or gaming, by all means buy another PSU, but suggesting you spend £60+ on a "decent PSU" off of the bat for a £299 system is absolute overkill.

Case in point, my Lenovo x510 came equipped with a i7 4770k, R9 290 and guess what... a generic 500w PSU, it didn't explode in my face. I replaced it (sensibly) when I dropped in a Fury as I wanted to then OC the card.

(Guess what PSU that gaming oriented machine is also fitted with...)

Heated, great deal, that CPU is about the best Haswell based processor you can buy. I know newer generations are out but it's still a very capable processor. Pair with a decent graphics card and that would make one fine gaming machine, provided of course the PSU included has enough juice...

Meant to say lower price point - brainfart. 1050Ti is about 50% more expensive for a gain of about 4-6fps - ballicom.co.uk/xfx…HAQ

Would this be a good PC for Lightroom, Photoshop and light editing of video if I bought a 2GB Video Card and added an SSD?

Yes, HT i7 CPU is superb for media - or for any purpose!

I can't find any info about this model on the web.
Searching for this model number even brings this thread up as no. 1 in Google.
Zoostorm's own website doesn't even seem to list it.

Grade c= used by a gamer

waleed786

its an i7.



Not all i3/i5/i7 are created equally.

Turns out the one I have received has a G3260 CPU.
I bet this was listed incorrectly in the first place
Edited by: "Arcana" 28th Oct 2016

omg..... no wonder was cheap! i see on ebay a number of i7 but says "can be upgraded to i7" and really a pentium! what are you doing now? you should get refunded the difference between a pentium and i7 processor? that assumes you can sell the pentium processor! and what if not confident opening pc? then have to return. what a hassle....

maybe the person who bought it ripped out the processor and replaced it with a pentium and returned it! does the memory etc stack up?
