This goes for any cheap desktop.
This is a great PC, very powerful. Picked mine up on eBay a while back for Lightroom and Handbrake. Works well, although I've upped RAM to 16GB and added a load more storage.

Perhaps a little pricey here given the small HDD and lack of RAM.

It's a really good deal.

Shame CPU isn't i7 4790k for easy OC, but it's still better than i3 7100 I've seen in other deal. R7 250 is a bit old now and probably gains half of the performance you can get from... Geforce 1030, but enough for home and casual gaming. Also, you can expect "noname" PSU and RAM.
To make it a solid gaming PC, I would definitely need to spend extra for video card and PSU straight away. As there's not much of OC options, the mobo should be fine. And RAM should work well enough the way it is.

Still worth £300 and would fit perfect for my needs.
Hi could i get some advice on what desktop to buy. This deal looks good how hard would it be to fit an ssd?
My budget is around £300 so getting an ssd would take me over budget. I would use it mainly for browsing and streaming so i would hdmi it to my tv all the time. Also maybe some light gaming with the free games ive got off this site over the years. My current set up is a 5year old dell refurb laptop that needs to be placed upside down due to over heating issues and always plugged in as the battery is on its way out so i think its telling me its time to upgrade.

Okay, budget really is whatever needs to be spent to do the jobs i …Okay, budget really is whatever needs to be spent to do the jobs i currently do (listed above) without the computer being on a go slow all the time as it makes me want to throw it against the wall. Dont want to buy anything that's unnecessary just for the sake of it but by the same token don't want what i buy to need replacing in 18 months either.Form factor - i have a dedicated study where current laptop lives with plenty of space, its not has a battery in it for over a year as that died so is constantly plugged in and may as well be a desktop. I never need move it around (it has no battery) as we have smartphones and 2 tablets. Currently renovating the house so at some point the study will be getting done so it may be nice, but not essential, to be able to be able to use it as a laptop then but i wouldn't pay a great deal extra for the privilege.I hear a lot mentioned of SSD nowadays, i presume it just offers faster boot ups etc which would be nice. Do you just put install the OS on the SSD or do also install the likes of office etc on there also. What kind of size should i be aiming for. When i got the Laptop, 4gb ram was pretty high spec, i presume the norm is 16gb nowadays.


If budget allows, get a MacBook Pro mate, even a used one (13" 2011/2012 onwards, or as new as you can afford).

They are brilliant to use, and really don't get 'bogged' and slow down over time like Windows machines do. They also tend to have better battery life etc too.

Many of them will offer sufficient overclocking ability to get some decent extra performance. You only need to spend the big bucks if you're trying to really push the CPU closer to its limits. As somebody who isn't concerned with MAX overclocking or whatever, I find the top boards a massive waste of money when I can get overclocking performance I'm quite happy with for much less.



Nobody is stopping you pairing a £90 board with a £310 CPU designed for overclocking but it's hardly the best pairing. Ideally you want a decent Z370 chipset if you plan on overclocking an 8700k just a little bit.

Even if you aren't aiming at max overclocking you are far more likely to have a stable, long term guaranteed overclock with lower voltage required and better vdroop characteristics on the nicer boards.

I'm not talking about £200+ boards here. £130-£140 for a well featured Z370 board will get something sufficiently better than a £90-£100 budget board to make it worth the extra cash with such a high end CPU.

Intel launched with the high end most expensive Z370 boards, soon to launch the mid and lower end models.

H370, B360 and H310. Saying that it's not exactly an ideal pairing for a £310 i7 8700k on a budget board that has average VRM performance or can't support the full range of overclocking options.

Really the cheaper boards will be perfect for the locked Coffee Lake models. A budget £80 board + a £100 i3 8100 would be a top cheap gaming combo.

Currently there are Z370 motherboards which have most of the functionality and are ment for overclocking. As to the B350 motherboard they are budget boards and tend to have a few of the overclocking functionality missing and some features. Most of all B350 boards are cheaper.

No, believe it or not it doesn't. Ryzen's IPC is a bit below Intel's so it's less than 50%. But despite that, having 50% more cores does help in everything else right now, and even in gaming it can maintain good FPS so all in all it's a much better bet for people qho wish to buy a gaming rig that can handle today, plus a bit of future-proofing for tomorrow.
How does this compare the the p75 i bought in 1995?
blaine9 h, 51 m ago

Useless graph because anyone with this spec system wouldn't be playing at …Useless graph because anyone with this spec system wouldn't be playing at 720p. Ryzen CPUs are more equal a sometimes pull ahead at quad hd and 4k.


At 1080p the gap closes but the hierarchy is still intact, and the intel quads still comfortably lead every Ryzen.

The higher the resolution the more you lean on the GPU, and so the gap minimises to near nothing. You aren't testing CPUs then, you are just doing a GPU test.

However the reason why you would use a CPU bound low resolution test is because it can be a very good indicator of how fast a given CPU can drive modern games and utilise the GPU resources available.

So when your next GPU upgrade in the near future is far more powerful the faster CPUs will likely drive it to better framerates even at higher resolution that you might play at. Less chance of a bottleneck with more GPU performance.

Intel dominate in this regard for games. 6700k is still a very fast gaming CPU with no AMD equal.

This just shows how Intel has been basically selling the same cpu with a …This just shows how Intel has been basically selling the same cpu with a different name for past year. Even if you compare the performance with an old i7 2nd generation, the performance is still not very far off - consider it's an very old cpu. The 6th and 7th generation barely have any improvement.



While this has been true for years and it does suck for consumers, from a business perspective you absolutely can't blame them. For nearly a decade they have had absolutely no competition with the higher end chips.

Then Ryzen came out and all of a sudden the jump from the 7700K to the 8700K is the biggest performance jump seen between intel generations in a long time. It's great that AMD are putting up a decent fight again.

Looking at it all from only a gaming perspective throws things off a bit. Games are notoriously bad at utilizing multiple cores well. In other CPU intensive applications the high core/ thread count CPU's leave this kind of CPU in the dust.

But given this is being sold as a gaming PC this CPU is still one of the best CPU's for gaming, where the speed and number of instructions per cycle each core can do is far more important to performance than the number of cores.

Edit: Not saying anyone here has been ripped off yet but those buying graphics cards on ebay be careful. There have been a lot of fake cards showing up on ebay. Old 560's,etc flashed with a fake BIOS to make them show up as newer cards.

I Don't disagree that there is more to look at I got an old i5 Lenovo t430 and with a 120ssd it's perfect for daily tasks.

my original point was and still is people need to get over the i7,i5,i3 banding as it's just Intel's marketing making a difference and in that respect benchmarking does give you an idea what it will handle.

I have this laptop and I got it for £1100 during the summer and I absolutely LOVE it. Dont get put off by the Medion branding. It's a rebranded Clevo P670RS-G. GTX1070, i7 6700HQ (would have liked 7th gen but oh well) and 32GB of RAM with a 256GB SSD + 1TB HDD allows everything to load fast and run really well. It stays cool but people do complain once the fans ramp up. I configured mine to run slightly slower on battery power to save power and to make the fans run slower so people in public don't complain. Like this, I can play Skyrim for 2 hours on a single charge! The screen is bright with G-Sync and mine ran at 75Hz which I overclocked to 100Hz. Everything is buttery smooth

The biggest downside to me is the battery life once you crack up the performance. Under max load, the battery will last about an hour (minimum) but other than that, can't complain since I mainly am plugged into the wall.

It's Clevo with a Medion badge on top. It's exactly the same machine as Scan 3XS computers, PC Specialist, XMG, Sager and on and on.

All of my laptops are Clevos of various strains. I've never had a cooling problem in thousands of hours of use.

Well said!

I bought my first laptop in 2007. It had a pathetically slow AMD chip with integrated graphics but it didn't stop me happily playing the original Far Cry on it! I bought a Medion laptop a couple of years later which had a dedicated Nvidia 220M GPU. I played SOOOO many games on that machine!

The laptop I've just bought has a 1050ti and I think it's simply brilliant for gaming.

no I had a z170 mb not z270...I needed a faster cpu than the 6400 I had and the 7700k ticked the boxes for what I needed and came along at the right price right time.
the last time I upgraded a mb from h110 to z170 I had to reinstall windows as it didn't like it so figured it might be the same from z170 to z370 the 8400 needs.

if you have a z170 or z270 mb there isn't much choice..i certainly wouldn't have paid £260 for a new 7700k,i would have gone 8400 and new mb but that doesn't mean the 7700k gets beaten..its extremely fast for gaming matching the 8600k in some games and beating the 8400 in others,swings and roundabouts.

the 8400/z370 is a nice cheapish way to get into the latest platform for now and leaves the door open to upgrade the chip later if you need it..shame there aren't any cheaper non oc boards out yet for it.

If you have exactly 257 quid to spend and already have an existing Z270 motherboard... What CPU do you currently have that you are replacing?

Also, 'reinstalling windows'? You know you can just pick that HD up and set it in with the new mobo? There will be some new drivers, but it should work without much fuss.

The one I linked isn't in the UK, but other places do offer it at similar price... At worst, its 185 from Amazon.

You are in the only case that I feel is even applicable to talk about buying this CPU.

You own a Z270 motherboard, you have a bad CPU currently?

Anyway, if you want a higher performing CPU at a lower cost (motherboard excluded) the i5 8600k is also superior to the 7700k in every way. It can be bought for 227 from Amazon (Not US this time).
the 8400 only runs at 4ghz..the 7700k will run at 4.4ghz stock and happily run at 4.8 every day with a 1 click button in the bios...you get the picture?

Very efficient in general multitasking. No delay. In fact, i switched from a i5 6600k@4.5GHz to an i7 7700@4.1GHz(BCLK OC +2.5MHz), and i see a little difference on multitasking. So imagine a 7700K monster compaired to a 4 simple 4 core cpu.


This isn't right either.

You would not see a benefit in the scenario above.

You would see a benefit in this scenario:

Playing a game, takes 2 cores.
Stack of google chrome tabs, light CPU use, so many of these can be loaded into HT.

But we are back to the point being made earlier.

A 4k 8 thread machine, versus a 6 core 6 thread machine (7700k vs 8400).

Those HT threads can help with light tasks, but those same tasks that can benefit from having 4 extra HTs would benefit even more from having an additional physical core.

When you say '7700k monster' you are ignoring the fact that the 8400 is the real monster.

4 Hyper threaded cores, in a perfect situation, is 1 physical core. Add in 2 physical cores, subtract the HT, you get the picture.

When you can buy an i5 8400 for 165: amazon.co.uk/Int…400

and a motherboard for 91 : uk.pcpartpicker.com/mr/…frH

So, for 256 quid (1 quid cheaper than THIS CPU). You can buy the motherboard AND a better CPU...

Why on earth would ANYONE consider this CPU? There is no reason I can see.
I was lucky enough to get a brand new 7700k off the bay for £200 a few weeks back,i had a 6400 on a z170 board that I had blk OC to 4.5ghz before that and the difference is definitely there in gaming and benchmark scores,all I did was update bios on the z170 and dropped it in.

from what benchmark gaming videos I have seen the 7700k at stock is just above the 8400 but of course the 7700k will do 4.8ghz easily and its not far off the 8600k in gaming,again from the gaming videos I have seen.

What kind of cooling systems need to use for cold down the CPU, and the internal system case? and how much power for the power supply unit I need to use to support the whole system? and guys, how much Britsh Gas will charge you per hour?


TDP or Thermal Design Power is how much electricity it'll use, but rather how much heat it'll give off at its rated speed. If you overclock this then it will get even hotter.
For most people an air cooler such as the Hyper 212 will be sufficient, you could go All in One however just note that eventually they will fail and/or leak.
Use PCPartpicker to judge what kind of PSU you'll need - don't forget to add in the rest of your components. As a rule of thumb 500W should be ample unless you're going crazy with multi GPUs.

You can use the tried and trusted Hyper Evo 212 (20 quid) and keep the overclock light, or you can go with something like the Coolermaster MasterLiquid 240L (60 quid).

The PSU depends on other components, there are plenty of sites online that can help you determine that, I like uk.pcpartpicker.com Just fill in your components and check the power consumption.

Likely a 550w PSU will handle this CPU and a good GPU no issue.

British Gas currently charge anywhere from 12-20p per kWh.

A 95W rating, running at full load, will cost you slightly less than a 100W lightbulb.

So, 10 hours of full power use is 12-20p. The average power is much lower.

It's not even because of performance now either, the Intel patches were pulled because they weren't stable. People were experiencing crashing and system lock ups...

Not to mention that Intel have tried to sell the vulnerability as a feature... Their PR department are just trying the old "throw everything and see what sticks" (, though by everything I just mean excuses). Problem is that doesn't exactly work with customer satisfaction...

Oh, see, the whole 'next two processors' thing is not true. They said there wouldn't be a forced upgrade until 2020. That's code for 'We actually mean there will be a new socket that you need to take advantage of the new CPU, but you *could* stick this great new CPU in that old mobo'.

Also, stop with the '16 threads' it is 8 cores with 8 virtual threads. It takes 4 or 5 virtual threads to equal a single physical core in *perfect* situations (Encoding). In most situations, a virtual thread is near worthless. In gaming, AMD have seen negative performance from enabling virtual threads.

That said, this CPU is not a good purchase. The i5 8400k, the i5 8600k, and the i7 8700k are all better value propositions for various reasons. As you pointed out, the AMD 1700 is not a bad shout either.

Also, notice how you didn't mention Spectre? AMD is impacted by that too.
