This is a reasonable price for the component list, is say 800 for the parts and 48 for someone to put them in the chassis. You could save cash and order it all separately, a lot of people upgrade a part of three at a time. The processor is more than half the price of this PC, it's a good foundation, save for put a slightly better psu in there.
I agree, I like looking at builds which can get a job done. But in this build I would claw back on the processor - no need to pay the extra for the i9 as it requires way more cooling than the 9700k. The case on initial glance is too small to provide that cooling even with the budget cooler. Obviously there is no gpu - but why put a i9 in the case and no gpu?! makes no sense. To make it right they should stick an i7 9700k in and a mid range gpu then produce a thermals video would work out a similar price... also no os - not a massive thing, but for someone who wants it working out the box, add another £85 for win 10. All in to make it a workable system - kinda I get it to £914.75 and thats with a 570 AMD - there were cheaper cards available but you want it to have some chance of playing a modern game.
I dunno, this looks kinda good for people not wanting to build a system but plug whatever GPU in they fancy (let's be honest, it is the only real bottle neck for gaming these days with the rest of hardware being half-decent). It's basically a whole system for near cost, that's not too shabby. That being said, agree PSU is a big yikes and yup why not stick a half-decent 500GB m.2 on there for £20-£30 more
I've price everything up on pcpartpicker.... its a good attempt.... but lacking in so many departments... Yes you get the headline i9.... but yes the case is gonna run hotter than hell..... yes you need a dedicated gpu maybe a 1660 or something I dunno, but this is a very budget build. The Mobo is good, i guess this is added to justify the cpu, ram is ok - but the case? the psu? the storage? I did find if you search independantly f pcpartpicker you can get some parts chepaer like the cooler at £17
