This is a fantastic deal btw - Amazon stock this model at £1059 - if you were to build your own it would come in at just under £1k.... I ran through PC part picker, picked all the cheapest equivalent items except for the case, where I chose a full tower. The total price came to £953.67 - But lets just call it £200 more expensive to build your own... see the image below This OMEN is pretty much the cheapest GTX1070 system you will be able to find at the moment, and there are plenty reviews on youtube with the build quality just copy and paste this : HP Omen 870-270na Core i5-7400 to see You also get warranties, plus if you make the purchase on credit card as it is not a bespoke system - it is a prebuilt - it will be covered by the consumer credit regulations meaning, if you get a fault of any sort you can just contact your credit card company rather than mess around with the seller.... If i needed one, this would be a no brainer.
Guys I'm looking something to edit video on, if I bought this can I upgrade the ram and keep updating as I see fit? IE is there a ceiling for amount of ram I can add to these components, also would change out the case as it is hideous
It won't though. It's a decent 4-core 3GHz i5 chip with 3.5GHz turbo. All i7 would give you over that is hyper-threading, which only gives a few percent performance benefit and isn't worth the extra money.
That's actually why I clicked it, thought it was a double sided fridge freezer :-)
Or simply remove what's there and replace it with faster and larger components! You can still upgrade just not add to what is already there
Yes but it's literally a pointless task plus you could end up waiting a bit to get your money credited back.
I've seen another product that seems too good to be true on Amazon. Would you know if Amazon would refund the money if nothing is received? Ta.
Not really, you know almost for a 99% fact they are scam sellers. Wouldn't waste the time.
Still worth a punt
"New Sellers" are most likely accounts set up with stolen credit cards.
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?
Agree with pretty much every point raised in the discussion. The only reason I am still gaming on PC is for the higher frame rates but with PC gaming costs rising and Console cost decreasing, it's harder to justify paying the premium. Graphics have improved so much that the difference between the two are narrower than it's ever been, looking at comparison videos between console and pc graphics it's not night and day like it used to be. There becomes a point where you're engrossed in the gameplay that you don't even notice the minor differences (I know I don't). PC still has a sector that it dominates: VR. PSVR doesn't even come close to what the Vive & Oculus can offer and the momentum is there to keep it pushing forward. I love my Oculus but it really needs higher resolutions along with beefier cards to drive it and when they do arrive I'll be picking them up. From this mining craze, I'm most dissapointed with the retailers cashing in on the GPU shortage though. Gouging the enthusiasts that have supported them for so many years when nvidia themselves are selling at msrp has left a bad taste in my mouth. Fortunately I already upgraded to 1080Ti before the mining craze but if any of these price hikes put people off pc gaming I wouldn't blame them.
Yep, agreed. They're essentially pricing their own customers out of the hobby. Once all the muppets stop mining, there will be a much smaller customer base. If it carries on like this we'll see the decline of PC outlets like Overclockers, Scan etc. I disagree about framerates - The difference between my 60Hz display and my 2 165Hz ones is phenomenal. It's really something when you get a full lockout of 165Hz, especially with GSync.
I think this is not the case, unfortunately. I'm a member of a large gaming forum that regularly features threads on new graphics cards etc. In these, I always see posts from members along the lines of 'hope I have a job in the summer to afford this (premium graphics card)' or 'I've been saving up for months/years to upgrade to this (premium graphics cards).' Nvidia have got people by the knackers with their marketing, making it seem as though these expensive toys are an absolute must.
It's true, 'premium' graphics cards (which really starts from anything above a 1060 now because of Nvidia's continual price hikes) are essentially a massive con if higher framerates than 60fps and/or 4K resolution are things you can live without. I can. And the later you can get with a £260 PS4 Pro for all intents and purposes with that console's 4k checkerboard upscaler. I'd challenge anyone to notice the difference from sitting distance. The problem is, AAA PC games are tethered by the specs of the weakest console out there (Xbox One), so mostly everything is built from the ground up with the lowest common denominator specs-wise in mind. Those PC games that are PC-exclusive are not given the budget or time to offer boundary pushing graphics either. What I'm trying to say is that its absurd Nvidia charging £500+ for graphics cards that essentially are used to power games that can run with good settings on much cheaper hardware. You are now, more than ever, paying a monumental premium to enjoy a tiny improvement in visuals. Subjective opinion of course, but framerates above 60fps I don't notice nearly enough to justify a few hundred pounds more of GPU power. 60fps is perfect for me.
Lol normally this isn't an 'either or' situation and let's be honest if you have £500 spare for a graphics card you don't tend to be short short on money
Can't see anything about warranty 9n those cards ? If it's just 2 years, then resale value is rubbish. Mat as well get a second hand asus or any other strong brand still under warranty.
It's night and day between the 970 and the 1080. Feels like double the framerate. I made the move almost two years ago, never looked back.
Dont buy Nvidia, else u will be supporting thier EVIL GPP program.
new phone who dis
If you want 144hz then I think an upgrade is needed
I know. I have my monitor plugged into a laptop. I need something soon aswell. But I dont want to pay £13/1400 on a graphics card that is nearly 2 years old. Thats why I got the asus GTX1070 deal for £800 but the 2 computers they sent wouldnt turn on so laptops direct refunded me. They have taken them off their website now and only have the i7 models for sale. They said there was a production problem with them. Now I am hungry for a new desktop. I didnt really consider this deal for myself. I just thought it might be useful for somebody. I wouldn't have posted it if I knew about the CPU as it kind of beats the purpose of having that card.
At the moment GPU, RAM and SSD prices are all very inflated. There is a global shortage on solid state memory and new factories are not due to start production until 2020. RAM and SSD prices are nearly twice what they were 18-24 months ago. GPU’s are not only impacted by the shortage of memory but also the massive demand put on them by crypto-miners. I have money aside to build my new pc but I cannot bring myself to do it at these prices. It’s a gamble, prices could go up before coming down. It’s a terrible time price wise for building/buying a pc ;(
Fair enough. You seem to know what your talking about. I guess these days there really is no cheap way of getting a desktop. I think I will wait until the new cards are released and try and get one direct. Thanks for responding.
Unfortunately no, it’s a socket released in 2013 and there has been FM3, FM3+ and now the current FM4. Even the best FM3+ processors struggle to hold 60fps in the latest AAA games. CPU’s on FM2/FM2+ were average performing when new. The other problem is this system uses DDR3 so even if you wanted to upgrade to a modern platform you also need to buy new DDR4 RAM.
Is there a processor that you could upgrade to with that board? That would handle aaa games?
Ohh nice so it did indeed come with a xb1 controller. It did say in the feature list Other features: Xbox One Controller, Steam-enabled but I just thought that meant it was compatible with XB1 controllers so I didn't bother including it in the description.
Arrived today , includes a mini keyboard and a windows Xbox controller, happy days, running sweet as nut , Fortnite getting downloaded the now !
When Sony or Microsoft go to AMD, they tell them "We want you to design us a custom motherboard with graphics, CPU, memory etc. we're looking at paying $XX for each chip" AMD can go away, look at their CPU and Graphics technology and build custom chips for them that strip away features that will never be used in a console. They can solder the chips straight into the board so don't have to provide features and connectors that ensure it will plug into thousands of different motherboards. Lots of little things they can trim off in a specialized custom console that'll save them lots of money. Then you've the fact that they can sell 75 million of these things. That's a dedicated factory line that can just keep churning out units nonstop without expensive retooling and downtime you get when switching between products. That's more money saved. Finally they sell these chips direct to the console manufacturers who themselves then sell the consoles at a tiny markup (or even a loss). Game stores also have a very tiny markup on consoles, making most their money on games. Compare this to a graphics card where AMD sell the chips to someone like Gigabyte who build the graphics card, sell it at a heavy markup to Ebuyer, who slap on their own markup. Lastly, these PCs are many times more powerful than games consoles but there are a few factors which may not make this clear in direct comparisons: -Compressed youtube swallows up a lot of fine detail. -There is diminishing returns in graphics, it takes increasing amounts of power for slighter visual upgrades. -Most games are designed for console limitations then ported to PC nowadays. PC gets better resolutions, frame rate, better textures and some nice graphical effects but it doesn't change it being designed for weaker systems so it doesn't take full advantage of the extra power. "PC First" games like The Witcher 3 look significantly better on PC but Assassins Creed or FIFA generally get a frame rate and resolution boost but not much else.
Absolutely spot on. I have a Xbox one x and also a Alienware alpha r2 with a gtx960 graphics card. The Xbox games are more expensive and also not as many games come out for the Xbox as they do PC. Pc always gets the updates and dlc first although Xbox are starting to enhance some older games for Xbox like red dead redemption which I think is great. As for the graphics there isnt really any difference between both but I like that I can adjust the graphics and update the alpha when it gets old.
I am guessing a 1070 can't play many modern games at 4k 60fps though. My rx vega card can barely hit 60fps on far cry 3 with ultra settings at 4k. A 6 year old game.
PC Master Race can chirp on all they want about how good their specs are, a console at £350 vs a decent rig well in excess of £1000. Can't beleive how expensive PC tech is these days.
Any good for playing Fallout A post nuclear role playing game?
Seen these in the last couple of weeks for around £520-530, soooo yeah... Just hang on a little, or buy a used EVGA card for the warranty.
There's comparable offers out there if you look for them. Same card (I think) for £549 https://www.kustompcs.co.uk/components/graphics-cards/nvidia/gigabyte-geforce-gtx-1080-8gb-windforce-oc/ Slightly faster card for £562 https://www.kustompcs.co.uk/components/graphics-cards/nvidia/gigabyte-geforce-gtx-1080-8gb-g1-gaming/
Expect better taste and quicker to heat when Beans Pascal comes out.
why expired? it is still instock. RE overclockers customer service i have only had good service from them, and i know of 2 mates who got free warranty upgrades from them. OCCUK went above and beyond. I have heard about the racism thing many years ago, but hasnt the company changed hands since then?
Worse cooling, more fan noise, less overclocking room, plus with the way that GPU Boost 3.0 works this often translates into lower sustained boost clock speeds. If you are spending this much on a GPU, you might as well buy the one with the best/quietest cooling solution that will fit in your case. If you have limited space then the mini might be for you.
Sorry to ask a stupid Question but what's the difference between a mini and a normal one?
I bought from them 10 years ago and swore that I'd never use them again. Sounds like they've not changed.
will never buy from OCUK again, due to their their distinct lack of customer service, racist forum and price gouging
About the price I'd expect for a 1050. Decent if you're looking to do some light gaming. Voted hot :-)
It's labelled as a gaming laptop and the GPU is bare minimum in that regard. For general laptop with odd bit of gaming it'll probably be fine.
2GB DDR5 I believe
Voted hot i think its a cracking deal
Gotta agree with others. The 1050ti is a lot worse than the 1060. Maybe 100 quid less and would be heat from me.
Needs more 1060
That's expensive. Just yesterday someone posted Asus laptop with 1060 for less than £900
I'll be honest at the price I'm expecting at least at 1060. I know if that was the case there may not be a i7 7700Hq.
thanks just ordered one
I bought a pair last year and used for light trail running over short distances. The sole had wore out in about 3 months. More fashionable than practical. Don't expect them to last long unless dandering about town in them
Actually really poor reviews on north face’ own website for these persally I like them!
Great shoes I have last year's model and they are so comfy.
Thanks, @Narcotix , very good price
I currently use a 46" 1080p 60hz Samsung TV as a monitor. I also have a 28" 4k monitor at 30hz which also has 1440p 60hz. And of course there are loads of 4k TVs eg if you hunt around can get a decent Sony 49" for £400 with low response time AND get Netflix 4k which you don't on a monitor. So I have also wondered if 1440p upsales well on 4k tvs? In theory 1080p should upscale better for 4k displays as just double width double height I think as you say proper 4k 60fps gaming is 2 years away for the masses?
For 4k you need 1080Ti to get anywhere near decent frame rate, but to be frank why bother when you can go 1440p with high 100+fps frame rates with a 980Ti or 1070 and suitable monitor?
this suggests1070ti overclock is same as 980ti overclock in performance guess depend on the model as 1070 more power efficient so if they got a 2x8 pin one surely could massively oc depending on fans? https://www.techpowerup.com/forums/threads/gtx980-ti-strix-oc-vs-gtx1070-strix-oc-benchmarks.235145/
http://www.overclock.net/forum/225-hardware-news/1601896-overclockersclub-overclock-showdown-gtx-980ti-vs-gtx-1070-vs-gtx-1080-a.html compares 1080 1070 980ti OC (but not 1070ti) 1440P overclocked: GTX 1070 is 3% faster than GTX 980Ti GTX 1080 is 23% faster than GTX 980Ti
Nathan_James: I would be holding off just a little longer the 1080 can now be had for £500 Which is bettet for overclocking for 4k 1070ti 1080 980ti 980ti is 300 now. Reference was 6 plus 8 pin but most on ebay have 2x8 pin and I have read revirws of 25pc overclocking. I think based is 40fps ultra 4k so maybe getting there. Or do we just wait a generation as 1080p ultra 60hZ on my rx470
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
I find it seems to run snappier at 120fps if that makes sense, maybe just a placebo effect but seems to be better to the eye.
I tried the game out yesterday. I set everything to high other than draw distance which I set to Epic. This gave me a solid 60fps. Do you get a gameplay advantage from 120fps?
If you check the settings some of the twitch streamers use , they turn off all the fancy stuff to get silky smooth high framerates
Wow just to think I bought this exact card over a year and a bit for £135... Crazy! I have this paired with,a cheap hp office pc I bought on eBay for,around £100 i5 2500, 8gb of ram a 25 quid ssd and it is a very good gaming machine for 250ish. Have some heat.
Got an RX480 4 gig for this price with Doom last year, what's going on as I would of thought this would be £100 tops?
Well at least it makes you visible - unlike all those black jackets - very unwise!
This one looks odd: https://www.cyclesurgery.com/p/gore-bikewear-womens-phantom-lady-gws-zip-off-jacket-N3134087.html?colour=3651
Good spot. Some great deals pity I can't really justify buying anything as I am well stocked in this dept.
ive got the gilet and its brilliant for offroad xc mtbing, keeps body warm and dry. the long sleeve element as jacket is excellent all year round with a base layer underneith for the warm blooded the fox mtb jackets are nice but sold out in bigger sizes throughout the day yesterday, the ladies gabba jersey seemed a great price.
Some great deals on there for top quality clothing. Heat added
