All GTX 1060 Discounts, Offers and Sale - April 2018
plus + free games worth of 149 , not bad but this i5 is not enough for GTX 1060 6GB ...
it's been this price since last week Not voting, but these are expected to come down much more in price once the 8th gens are all out would have posted it myself, but it was £999 before, so it;s just £56 off...
I'm considering getting the 17" model as the screen is superior.
Disregarding the keyboard layout if you're after a good gaming laptop at a decent price (sub £1000) then I highly recommend it. Recently purchased one on a different deal and everything I've thrown at it has been flawless. Witcher 3, 1080P, Ultra settings is as smooth as a baby's bum. Same with Arkham Knight, Shadow of Mordor and Rise of the Tomb Raider. Tried Witcher 3 at 4K and that was a bit of a slideshow (as expected), not tried the others yet. Did try F1 2012 at 4K and that got an FPS of 88 so it's certainly possible to play older games in 4K. A great gaming laptop IMO.
If you can swallow the US layout and warrenty issues, this is a cracking deal. Heat
Yeah, alright then, petal.
Who was talking about you? Do you see quotes in my comment? The world does not revolve around you big boy. Insecurities!
Just a heads up might be a idea to contact the box about whether this sku is a IPS or a TN Panel. Reason for this I posted a different sku for this laptop here , good price however when people had it delivered was shocked to find a very subpar TN panel.
Ut what do you play it on without a laptop?? :3
If anyone wants an alternative to buying a gaming laptop try the cloud PC gaming route. You can pay $20 a month and have the equivalent of a 1080 graphics card with the rest also high specs. As long as you have half decent internet ie around 50mb then you should be fine.
Where do find your laptops with 1060 6gb? The back of a van? Maybe it would be too much for 3gb one
Backlight is only red?
Average specs. Awful case.
Pretty poor IMHO, been far better deals posted here in recent months including two machines with GTX1070s for less than this and definitely seen GTX1060 systems cheaper. GPUs may be scarce but you can still do better IMHO...
What a con. I bought a G3-605 for £120 and just spent under 300 for that exact same graphics card. 16GB ram 256 SSD and a 3TB stock hdd. I think you would save loads if you did the same in comparison.
Fair price, but not a hot deal. Could save few more pounds build own machine with same specs. Unless you want transformer tower case ;) Heat for your time, the price is just OK.
Exactly a reasonable price for a pre-built machine. The rough price i would expect to pay for similar spec, pre-built. But it not a good deal or hot.
Just buy second hand
It'll probably have the marginally better i5-7400 in it, not the advertised i5-6400.
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.
Pretty much not upgradeable unfortunately :(
Yes it does! I know GPU prices are coming down but still...
I've got a Asus 1060 6bg and Evga SC 1050ti 4gb in two different machines, wish I hadn't bothered with the 1060 as the 1050ti 4gb plays everything and anything I can throw at it at 1080p and has really impressed me, a 1060 for the money isn't a good buy the 6gb is the biggest con as it's only between 3 to 7% better than the 3gb and both are not quite good enough for 4k or 1440p and never will be - a 4gb 1050ti for cheaper will do all you need at 1080p for now. In my opinion the sensible choice would be a cheap bargain 3gb 1060 if you can find one or low priced 1050ti for now until prices get better - as I understand it the 6gb 1060 isn't powerful enough to really make use of all of it's 6gb of ram anyway and the small difference in performance just isn't worth the money. A good example is the 960 2gb and 4gb 3-4 years on and the difference is still minimal between them.
Thanks, amazing my memory still works (y)
it has less cuda cores
Think you can get free games bundle from any authorised reseller Inc Amazon
COLD, not a 4k screen :P
The Asus ROG Hero at saveonlaptops with 120hz screen and 6gb 1060 for £899 is the best out there at the moment edit: cheaper listing in first post from Amazon but there’s a games bundle at saveonlaptops including Vermintide 2 which is worth the extra few quid
Cooling doesn't always mean better performance. I would put alot of trust that Asus have cooled their laptop sufficiently and I would consider them a bigger manufacturer than MSI. The 120hz screen and 6GB 1060 make the extra 40 quid well worth it.
There you go if still looking 8gb cex £40
No it's 4 lighting zones
Does this support "per key RGB"?
there you go I slightly overstated the 50 percent the guy in the video saw fps range go from 80 -100 to 120 -140fps.
Do we have any links to CEX (or anywhere) for the 8GB upgrade... Would be nice to be running 16GB just for future proofing... Cheers,
Just to note that the new 8th gen i3's are the equivalent of the 7th gen i5's (Quad core) So, perfectly fine for gaming.
I had the i5 in the cart until I actually looked at the benchmarks for the i3 wondering myself why they paired it, but it’s a fantastic cpu for HD gaming, personally I have a nifty 4K tv with a 120hz panel (for hd anyway, you can’t get 4K 120hz, or at least not on this tv) so why would I need the i5, but this is subjective. But yes the 2 extra cores would come in handy for other things.
For me I do find it very odd to put a I3 into a machine that is suppose to be a VR device and team it with an GTX1060 card. While I have an I3 myself I built as retro games machine. For that is prefect but when i test it with the modern AAA titles it does start to bottle neck the graphics cards. If you building a front line games machine I dont know why would want an I3 over the extra money for a I5 I dont see the logic to saving 70 quid
Bit overpriced for an i3 for me.
Yea true, the ram is a lot slower in that one but actually nothing wrong with an i3 it will plays nearly all games on 1080p ultra/high, maybe if you have lots of rendering to do.
Newer CPU traded off for a smaller SSD.
Not wanting to hijack your deal, but there's the new MSI GP63 with a brand new 8th Gen i7 for £1249(pre-order) at OverClockersUK. most of the other specs are in common with your one. Hope this helps somebody! EDIT: oh it doesn't have the free bag that one has. https://www.overclockers.co.uk/msi-gp63-leopard-8re-nvidia-gtx-1060-6gb-gddr5-15.6-fhd-120hz-i7-8750h-gaming-laptop-lt-279-ms.html
Wtf is up with DDR4 ram prices?
Have to agree, should be getting 16gb for this price.
Wtf is up with all these 8gb ram laptop's
The 1060 6gb mobile is about 10% slower than the desktop version. The 3gb is about 10% slower again compared to the 6gb.
What makes you think retailers are buying cheap and selling expensive? I'm sure the wholesale prices are just as inflated at the moment.
in games like fallout 4, watch dogs 2, battlefield 1, ghost recon wildlands, rise of the tomb raider, also most games on 1060 that are behind the 980 are only barely if behind at all
So in what specific situations do you feel a 1060 is better than a 980?
what games you play and what software you use
The SSD and RAM don't bother me at all as these are easily upgraded. The 3GB GPU makes this a no go for me
Tempted, but any others to consider for this money?
1060 with only 3GB Only 128GB SSD Only 8GB RAM The MSI bundle makes it a little better of a deal but the GE62 is apparently much better than this.
Pretty sure this has already been posted. Would have snapped it up.if it wasn't for the 3GB GPU
I have yes but only Mario kart and Zelda. Both work pretty much perfectly at 1080p and even with the higher Res texture packs. It does struggle above 1080p however.
Tempted, but any others to consider for the money or similar money?
Have you tried cemu?
I got an MSI laptop last week. Similar specs. The 7700hq with the 1050ti and I love it. Ironically I've not played a single pc game on it but things like pcsx2 and dolphin run like butter in 1080p and even above ( via TV out).
With all these gaming laptop deals lately. It's hard to convince myself I don't need them. I got a slightly out of date gaming pc that collects dust other than work. That's my excuse not to buy a laptop. but man, the want is becoming difficult to ignore! (horror)
Deal is still active at £899
Is this deal still active ?
Managed to get the £499 Dell Deal- i5, 1050, 8GB RAM. Plenty for 90% of games and runs like a dream. This is a decent deal though for the current market although imho laptops are far overpriced in general
What spec is this deal you've done - I can't get save13 to work.
Have been waiting for this spec to be at this price, but want the 6gb 1060 version - close but no cigar!
You could have a 6ghz dual core it still wouldn't be enough of a processor for any game today. The i3 6100 however is a dual core with hyperthreading so it effectively has 4 threads to use for gaming. 4 physical cores is of course better than a dual core with hyperthreading however.
3.8ghz of dual core + a lot of games not optimised for multi core
i3-6100 is only dual core processor.
And the 100 quid 1080 TI's.
Love those crap Chinese gtx 970s on ebay featuring 1gb dram.
Same price with a gtx 1070 Here
Why have these guys not mentioned what brand of various parts are they using ?
This is not a "deal" as you can build same +120GB SSD for same price. I can't understand why it's so hyped :D
Coffee lake prices will be coming down now with the h310, h370 and b360 mobos out. I would imagine this has a lot of cheap parts, probably with a H310. Yes is a H310... £40 motherboard.
Around £670 in the end!! :o the quality of the laptop is decent although the sound and trackpad arent great! I ended up buying VR works decently.
I dread to think what steal of a price you got it for in the end, mine is treating me okay needed that extra 8gb ram stick that I ordered from cex....really need to treat myself to a bigger m.2 drive 128gb is a bit pittiful. On the other hand I've noticed my right hand side hinge is very slightly loose, such to when I put my finger on it makes a clicking noise and can be wobbled. Gonna contact ao and see what they say.
Thanks Ryan I rang up and got my discount!! Stella deal on my gl503vm! How is yours treating you?
I know what your saying revaluate but there's nothing stopping you playing the games in 1080 and the rest of the time benefiting from QHD (not 4K BTW.) If you are playing an older game, (I'm currently playing NFSMW 2012,) you have the added bonus of playing at a higher 1440P which the 1060 can handle. Don't think the 1060 would handle 4K.
AWD-IT used before for components , good prices and service . But would never buy a prebuilt P.C from any shop or online
It all depends on what you want to play; personally I'm happy with Football Manager, Civ IV, Company of Heroes, and some tycoon game. My only "complaint" on this build is the lack of an SSD, even just for the operating system. The difference in speed between a mechanical and solid drive really is chalk and cheese. Those LED lights are unnecessary for my liking, and I wouldn't need an optical drive. Take those out and give me an SSD, for around £600, and this would be a very good deal indeed.
WTF is wrong with you ffs. troll someone else
Says the guy who keeps coming back for more (y) alright pal!
you can troll all you like - obviously have too much time on your hands
