        We do what we can :)

  •  

    Hi I'm Peter, let me know if you have any question on system.

  •  

    Will a tax invoice be provided?

  •  

    darn this is cheaper than buying all the parts myself…

    can you do cheaper if i dont need the dvd burner, maybe 16gb ram instead? :)

    •  

      Hi silverx,
      You can upgrade to 16GB ram through our ebay upgrade option (in our listing). We are not able to take parts out at this time. :(

  •  

    how much does it cost to upgrade to an i7 4770?

    •  

      Hi madn3ss,
      Sorry this special pricing is available for system with this cpu only. Feel free to pm me with the spec that you are looking for and I will see what I can do.

      •  

        had a look at your Razer keyboard and mouse combo, but doesn't list which Razer product. What is it?

        •  

          Hi madn3ss,

          I checked with Peter, the KB and Mouse combo is the Deathstalker Expert and Deathadder 2013. I'm not sure why they didn't just specify it. I'll have a chat with him…

        •  

          @Roland Chen: This system deal does seem to be attractive. Do you have these deals once in a while?

        •  

          @madn3ss: We plan to run these everyone once in a while, yes :)

        •  

          @Roland Chen: you guys planning around once a month?

        •  

          @madn3ss: I have to get back to you on this one but generally we don't discuss sale timings due to commercial sensitivities (I wouldn't be able to say atm anyway since everyone is on weekend break :p )

  •  

    When this system is just sitting there idle how many kW does it use?
    ie "on" but not doing high end gaming.

    •  

      Hi RickOnOzBargain,
      That's a good question. Let me look into it for you and get back to you.

    •  

      It depends on your background tasks. A fresh system generally will use 80 watts on idle.

      Peter's not able to comment atm as he has reached his hourly limit :P ( - is this a restriction for new users or global?)

        What kind of cruel employer are you ???

        •  

          It's an Ozbargain limit. :P

          What kind of cruel employer are you ???

          The good kind.

      •  

        Sounds good enough.

        Thinking of getting one for my 11 year old.
        He will no doubt leave it on 24x7 like
        every light bulb he ever goes near,
        ie roughly another $200/year on the elec bill

        (I'm the official elec-nazi for our house)

        •  

          You can always set your computer to auto-sleep after a certain period of inactivity. Those settings are usually not enabled by default except for tablets and laptops but AFAIK, those settings are not removed from the desktop versions of the OS - just not set.

  •  

    Any GPU options/upgrades available?

    •  

      Yes scroll down on the listing to "Graphic Card Upgrade / Add-on" :)

  •  

    Extra $125 for Windows OS.

    Why do you need 700w psu ? 500w would do surely?

    Seems like a reasonable deal though. Can anyone comment on after sales service with these guys ?

    •  

      Give you some options to upgrade your parts in the future? My Corsair HX620 has survived three computer builds… although it's probably on it's last legs now. I'll leave the second part of your question to others.

      •  

        WiFi card would be good if WiFi isn't on mobo

        •  

          Hey Higibo, there's an option for that under "Network Card Add-on" :)

        •  

          Yeah just saying you could drop psu size and include WiFi card in future

        •  

          @Higibo: Ahhh, sure, I'll pass the feedback to Peter :)

  •  

    upgrade motherboard possible? suggest a motherboard with 4 DIMM slot and support ECC?

    •  

      su27km,
      Sorry this special pricing is available for system with this motherboard only. Feel free to pm Peterngu91 with the spec that you are looking for and I will see what I can do.

      • haha, I'm relaying messages for Peter 'cause he can't post :P
  •  

    Ok more questions!

    1) Your listing says: Intel Z87 Chipset (Gigabyte Z87M-HD3)
    So, I assume it has the Z87 Chipset?
    But you also have options to upgrade from H87 to Z87 for $49.
    I'm hoping that is just an oversight?

    2) I'd like this computer to last a while.
    And I want to be able to stick in another matching video card
    when he finally starts complaining that Battlefield 6 :) doesn't run fast enough. Can I do that? Does it crossfire/sli (whatever) with another
    Nvidia Geforce GTX 750 Ti OC, to basically double framerates?

    •  

      From Peter:
      Q1. Thanks for pointing it out, we'll change it. Should be Z87 to Z87 SLI CrossFire Motherboard (title and correct link will be updated.) Apologies for the confusion.
      Q2. According to Nvidia SLI rule you need to put same architecture core with same ram size to boost the performance up to 150%. SLI generally does not double the frame rate, you will see differing returns depending on whether the game is optimized for SLI or not.

      See comment below.

    •  

      750s don't support SLI

      •  

        You are right. Apologies for the confusion :|

        •  

          That's twice you've got the MB details wrong, not a good look.

        •  

          @Higibo: Yeah I have - part of the reason is because Peter is suppose to be taking care of this but he registered too late so he hit the comment limit for new users - so I have to relay questions and responses. It's not helped by the fact that something came up today and we're awfully busy so he's running around like a headless chook in between assembling systems and helping with dispatch and answering questions.

          I may have relayed the question to him a little ambiguously - I didn't specify that it was the GTX750Ti that was being referred to, simply whether SLi would double performance. I guess he didn't pick up that it was the GTX750Ti - I think he may have thought Fordleg below asked this question (he's upgrading to a GTX780). I don't think Peter had a chance to read the comment before he replied - again apologies for the confusion.

    899 system
    add for upgrades.

    125 windows - Can Windows be pre-installed to the SSD as main drive?
    69.95 cooler
    49 Blu ray burner
    489 GTX 750 Ti 2GB to GeForce GTX 780 3GB
    89 RAM Upgrade 8GB to 16GB - Guessing its two 8GB sticks as the MB states its 2 DIMM?

    75 Intel H87 Chipset to Intel Z97 Chipset - Wondering what the Z97 MB is?

    Also is my calculations correct if i was to purchase through EBAY, i hope you can answer these small Questions :)
    great system Total - 1795.95

      Hey fordleg,

      I've checked with my colleague:

      • If you purchase Windows with our systems, we will install it for you unless you tell us not to. By default we will put it onto the SSD but you can send us an eBay message, just to be sure.

      • Yes, 2 DIMMs.

      • The Z97 board is the AsRock Z97M Pro4, if you are looking for something specific, you can PM PeterNgu91 and he will quote for you.

      • That total looks about right :)

      •  

        Sounds good! was just making sure that MB supported Nvidia.. i have not purchased a PC in awhile.. just wanted to be 100% sure. Also do you guys do a burnin test or bios update if the MB required it?

        :) thanks for the quick response too!

        • +1 vote

          I believe there should be no problems. I will double check with Peter.

          We don't generally do a long burn-in test, if you would like one, leave us a msg but do note that this could delay shipping (as we will need to leave it to burn in for a while.)

          We generally don't update the BIOS unless it's required for compatibility reasons.

        •  

          @Roland Chen:

          Hello Roland/Peter,

          I'd also like to know if the Z97 motherboard can handle the Nvidia card. I was after the GTX 770 2GB version upgrade to go with the deal. If the Z97 doesn't take the card, is there any plan to offer a similar motherboard that can handle Nvidia gear? I'm particularly after something with more slots for ram and upgrades then the current one included.

          Thanks.

        •  

          @bobblermcbobbles: I don't have Peter nearby but the board has a PCI-E 3.0 x16 slot - I don't see why there would be any problems :p

          If you are looking for a beefier MB, you can always drop Peter a PM.
