All Gaming PC Discounts, Offers and Sale - October 2018
I have never seen this 'rule', plus, if it wasn't allowed, the HotUKDeals staff would have taken down the post? To be perfectly honest, I think you are making this into something that it doesn't need to be. I saw it was cheaper, I posted the deal.
Well consider the rule on here for reposting a deal is 1 month (?). It can be argued that this is essentially reposting the same deal
i mean, the first time a deal for this item was posted was January 2016. It has since been reposted multiple times, better go and let everyone know that they should have updated the first post! (skeptical)
Hope you don’t mind if I go and repost every deal every time the price drops then
Nice! Thanks, op!!
Because the marginal person buying an ssd is replacing a hdd in their old desktop or laptop not replacing their old ssd. I agree... Other budget youtubers have done better comparison videos of hdd vs budget vs high end ssd and I prefer to watch them! Hardware unboxed, techyescity, randomgaminghd, budgetbuilds etc
All these SSD co's love to quote the fastest seq speeds (clean, unfilled drive),.which wont really affect most people, rather than the 4k block speeds which will affect people esp. if this drive is used as a boot drive. Dram -less means that it gets a lot more writes than a normal cached drive. It would be nice to know what controller and namd it uses .. supposedly JMICRON ("the horror, the horror") but even then their problems were a few years ago. Cheap yes, worth your money?? highly debateable ...specially when known good brands are dropping their prices significantly
Poor read/writes, along with lower 4k reads than writes. (based on 120gb/240gb). Basically don't buy
Interesting! So potentially rebadged refurbished devices, or(more likely) built from NAND that was rejected by big brand QA due to having too many dead cells. That's a lot more encouraging.
lol. guess i have morals, i eat meat, i drive a petrol car and cant be arsed with recycling, but have no choice as they wont take my bins otherwise (lol)
Great price via Camelcamel..
This can be overclocked to 3000MHz, and anyway, unless you have a Ryzen build, it won't make too much of a difference. It is also currently, the cheapest 16GB's of RAM that you can buy NEW. Also, could you link the 3200MHz RAM for £120? The cheapest new 16GB 3200MHz RAM I can find is £137... https://uk.pcpartpicker.com/products/memory/#Z=16384001,16384002,16384004&sort=price&s=403200
Yep different barnds can work fine .. I'm using 12gb ...8gb of vengeance 3000 and 4gb of hperx fury 2400.. it all works fine and seems to run at 3000mhz .. altho I have two sticks of the hyperx fury, which only run at 2400mhz when used together ... :Shrug .. all one intel C/lake ....
This isn't bad but if you have a bit more money to spend on ram for 120 you can get 3200hmz ddr4 16gb so why does this have so much heat?
You *can* mix brands, but unless you're good with BIOS tinkering or find a perfect matching stick in terms of latency(CL), speed(Mhz) and voltage(Xv), it's usually recommended to get another stick of the very same type(not just brand) for the most worry-free compatibility. Another option would be to buy a 2x8GB set, and then sell your existing 2x4GB pair, though that does require a bit of extra hassle.
For those preferring Ebuyer over Amazon, it's £119.98 there: https://www.ebuyer.com/855436-adata-ultimate-su650-960gb-ssd-asu650ss-960gt-c
The original poster pointed out above that Xstra (offering the £118-odd price) are a Amazon Marketplace vendor, and he didn't think he was allowed to list them, so he went for the Amazon price (similar to "The Iron Price" for Game of Thrones fans out there).
i want to buy a 1tb ssd to stick in my console but the benefits aren't brilliant compared to the sticking a 6tb hdd for a similar amount of money
Lol good spot, £0.10 per GB rather (:I
It’s down to under £119 now....
Couldn’t agree more, need to change mine to blower for my node 202 build (y)
Amazon put it up to £525 because people were buying it at £399 (lol) (lol) . Are they stupid?
See what the 2070 comes in at price wise first, if it's near 500, the price for the current 1080s will continue shifting down rapidly.
my 1060 asus turbo was is 20C cooler than my 1070 asus dual with an extremely good airflow case Pascal is cool enough to go with blower and OC it to the max, cooler is for aesthetics imo
Anyone know if this pivots?
According to Acer spec this one also has adaptive sync (freesync) unlike the cheaper one, so might push you one way or the other.
If you don't mind about the VESA mounting, and don't care about the 75Hz instead of the usual 60Hz, have a look here: https://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/acer-sa240ybid-238-full-hd-ips-4ms-monitor-7498-ebuyer-3072925 (£74.98)
Has VESA support if you’re into that kind of thing ;)
I believe MSI Z370 boards got an update for backwards compatibility.
Only £50 more? Are you going to wait for a z390?
Plus 3 year on site warranty? People just vote blindly sometimes... Oh well... (annoyed) another ice age deal :) even if a good deal in the end... don't really get this :S
https://uk.pcpartpicker.com/list/vpdpFt You got me, card I chose was wrong one. Fixed.
That list comes to £2094...£2141 - £2094 = £47
The screen burn is strong with this one
can build a nvlink 2080ti for less
I can't talk about the 1070 ver. but I have the 980m ver. thermals are really good for a laptop.
Shame, because it's a decent deal. I'd avoid anything with even slight thermal issues. Shame crap like this gets released.
I've posted this comment before when this very laptop has been posted numerous times... Check out the official EVGA forums and see what the owners say about it... You'll find that it seems to have thermal issues, owners have no way of getting hold of a replacement battery and that EVGA has seemingly phased this model out without a successor so general support stops here too I'd say.
Thanks my dude! :)
There is a few place I tend to use, but if you just want to do a quick build and price compare you can use PC Part Picker, that will allow you to specify a system and also help you ensure you get compatible parts for the most part.
Awesome find! Where'd you find the parts for the price?
This isn’t the best fresh tech offer. I had my computer from them, but from their ebay page when quidco did 10% off ebay. Ryzen 7 2700x processor, 1050 2gb graphics, X470 motherboard, 8gb 3000 ram, 120gb SSD, original price was 750 so paid 675 when taking into account cashback. Great service, arrived quickly, great bit of kit as long as you don’t mind doing a few little upgrades. I’ve added a 2TB hard drive in mine, will add another 8GB ram and upgrade the graphics card.
I ordered from these guys about 5 years ago, they sold me an i5 3570k but installed a non k version. They ignored all my emails and calls and weren't interested at all after they received the money.
Nothing wrong with it being a 60hz monitor, especially for creativity work.
Ok but 50% cheaper?
But a 27" 1080P monitor is a lower DPI, so easier to manufacturer, and so should be cheaper.
expect a good chance that your battery life is terrible on any laptop from dell outlet. mine lasted 14 months.
Models included: All Alienware, 5567, 5577, 7566, 7567, 7577, G3, G5 etc Basically all gaming. Try again... But this time, select the model you want, including G3. I'm availble to come to your house and show you how to use the internet for a fee!
I was expecting to see Dells other models like the G3 but all I see is overpriced Alienwares
Good deal, they're clearing out stock for the new models. Which imo are dated and ugly compared to the 2017 early 2018 models.
Alienware is a owned by Dell.... Were you expecting to see Asus laptops on there?
Not a good deal this unless you very specifically want this exact motherboard, desperately want the 8086k over the 8700k, and need to do it now. Should be able to get these components for comfortably around the 700-750 mark (assuming 8700k), and probably cheaper if you take time waiting for deals.
This is cold....
I love how intel are now pushing the "our processors are good for games" marketing...... the reality, the GPU is most of the bottle neck, not the CPU..... why is it most configure your own PC sites refuse to let you pair say a core i5 with a 1080Ti....think im just going to build my own PCs from now on
This bundle would be good if they swap that Aorus motherboard for the Asrock Taichi
Processor 270 few months ago, now total bonanza I wouldn't buy already year old processor for that money, motherboard I dont want it for free, but 130, this ram max 130, ssd "no name " no more than 50 pounds, total sum 580. 800 is just a joke, for that money should be sold together with gtx1070
NOOOOOOOO , how often does an offer like this come up when I'm NOT at work, grrrr.
Out of stock. You snooze you lose. XD
Have one these with an overclocked 1700 @4ghz and 32gbs of RAM. It's a pfsense router, Plex server, torrent client and runs the occasional VM, hasn't crashed once fully set up.
poor support from asrock, their motherboard bios chip get f.....up after a while. They used to send for free, now they ask you to purchase somewhere else
I would probably get one of these if it came with an updated BIOS for ryzen 2.
can they be sold separately or have to be sold together?
My gtx970 died a little while ago, is this as good as or better than a 970?
must be as i saw dates on radeon website started few months past. go to their website.
I bought this 2 weeks ago from the same retailer for £185 wonder if the free game promotion is still going on
my dilemma is...worth the upgrade from a 2gb GTX 670? my 670 is terrible in PUBG but for most of the other stuff is sort of ok - it copes....
Cold, 60hz with 4mS delay gtg (poo)
Great deal and a great monitor. Picked up one from Amazon Italy 6 months ago for 445 Euro , been loving it
Yes I was thinking the same. The colours are quite vibrant for a va panel, especially in witcher 3 (blood and wine Toussaint) looks pretty damn good.
Short answer: it depends. Some panels are able to increase their refresh rate as the resolution decreases. Others cannot. Multiple variables at play here. The safe bet is usually that you'll have to drop the resolution considerably to have a chance to gain anything, and unless it's a reported feature for that specific model, assume that it won't and rather just get the model with the refresh and resolution you actually want.
You know when monitors say 4K at 60hz.. does that mean if you were to do 1440p that would also be 60hz?
Haha, posted this monitor in May from scan for the same price, got -80° because "why would anyone pay this much for a monitor" :( Bought it though and I love it. Only down side is I see a bit of ghosting/motion blur, even at 120hz when playing fast paced games like siege or overwatch. Screen quality is amazing, and I've realised that EVERY monitor stand should have a handle on it to pick it out of the box
Amazon offer a pretty decent 3 year warranty for a token sum. Might be worth paying out for peace of mind. £54....... Amazon Protect 3 year Breakdown & Accidental Damage Cover for Monitors from £750 to £799.99 https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B01DO4DULO/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_z2GTBb2TKXEW4
Cheers was waiting for an Amazon price match will get now!
Picstop £32.99 delivered
£33.50 plus free delivery : https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B01N5IB20Q/ref=ox_sc_act_title_1_1_1?smid=AF97044XJRHFD&psc=1
BiCS is QLC, so expect poorer performance than TLC drives. This should be under £30 tbh.
How about this one at PicStop- Much cheaper than the one posted... https://www.picstop.co.uk/ssd-drives/kingston-a400-ssd-25-inch-240gb.html?wgu=217_116019_15384752160991_473cbf37dc&wgexpiry=1541067216&source=webgains&siteid=116019 Looks like cheaper Kingston is better than Sandisk. Could not find toshiba TR200 on this one to compare.
Good price - but poor performance by SSD standards https://www.pcworld.com/article/3230927/storage/toshiba-tr200-review.html
