    I dont even need a PC but this is so tempting

    "Things that ozbargainers say for 500"

  •  

    Would this be a good PC for CAD and Revit etc?

    • +4 votes

      Yup… You won't find better for the money. 12 thread cpu, you will want to get more memory though, 8gb won't be enough most likely for extensive cad work.

      • +1 vote

        Ideally you'd swap this RAM for 16 GB of 3000+ MHz RAM. Unlike Intel, Ryzen gets a significant performance boost from faster RAM (though you hit diminishing returns at around 3200MHz)

    not a bad price considering I built a similar pc from ebay sales last week for just over $1k

  •  

    just saw an american build a very similar system on youtube for $750 (USD). probably with 16 gig of ram, different case and rbg. good deal

  •  

    It's nice,just wish they listed specifics

    • +3 votes

      Cheap and Generic shit all around (but not worse than a Dell system).
      Not a machine for a hardware enthusiast, but excellent mid-tier gaming as it is machine perfectly suited for 1080p.

      • +2 votes

        Honestly, if you buy this and just use half the main parts, you'd still be coming out ahead. Just the R5 2600, motherboard, RAM and the RX580 already comes crazily close to the total price of this system.

    How do I get windows on this as ozbargainly cheap as possible?

    • +6 votes

      If you're are a university student, you can get it for free from there.

      If you're not, it's possible to purchase grey market keys for Windows for under $20. Note: these keys are usually bought with stolen credit cards and there is a possibility for them to be revoked. I personally wouldn't because of the risk and the ethics.

      If you're really Ozbargain-spec, I'd recommend checking out ProtonDB as a lot of Steam games now run on Linux. I know people are scared of Linux but Ubuntu is very easy to setup these days (easier than Windows IMHO) and if it can play the games you want, I see no reason not to use it for the time being.

    •  

      Check ebay. Some people selling oem windows 10 licenses for dirt cheap

    •  

      most ozbargainers pie rate it lol

    •  

      Just download win 10 and skip the part when they ask you for a cd key?

    Why am I getting can't apply this code to your order.

      ebay plus member?

      •  

        Yup.

        Funny thing is I tested it an hour ago on my mobile, and the code works, but I didn't commit the checkout.

        But now the same item didn't work.

        • +1 vote

          I did the exact same thing, tested code, but waited to checkout. Now the code no longer works, I guess maybe time to use that Ebay Plus helpline.

          Update: I did call the helpline, it appears they are having issues with the PLUSME coupon. They ended up giving me a voucher for 10% of the total.

      •  

        You might wanna check this out
        And the another problem can be your account initially created in a different region so that should be migrated to Australia in order to avail Australian deals. Which is 2 mins job for Help Desk people.

    Amd or Intel based system for general casual gaming?

    • +2 votes

      Intel is better for gaming with higher per core clocks. AMD is better for multi-tasking/professional workloads with more cores/threads.
      But in general either is a perfectly fine choice for both uses as long as there's minimum 4 cores and its not some low-power version with stunted clocks.

      • +2 votes

        AMD is hands down better at everything other than gaming. And is slightly slower at gaming. Slightly. However it is so much cheaper that it's not even in the same ballpark. Usually you can get an i3 for the price of a 2600. If you buy Intel at the moment it's because you have lots and lots of money that you don't mind wasting. Generally save the money by buying AMD and get a better graphics card with the money you saved.

        •  

          I'm also going to throw in the fact fact ryzen boards tend to be cheaper, overclocking is more abundant (though you can't with an b320 board, lol) and their stock coolers are usable.

    • +1 vote

      What Viper said ^

      At this price point, you'd be hard pressed to beat this deal though.
      And the GPU will usually be the bottleneck in this system.

      • +6 votes

        I disagree . Bang for buck Ryzen wins even for gaming .
        I bought a 2600 off ebay for $192 (265-20% -10% gift cards ) . Closest Intel has for that sort of money is I3 .
        I'm sure theres other price points where Intel looks better but not at the $200 price point .

        • +3 votes

          You're right, I haven't bought Intel for a few years (excluding laptops), didn't realize they were still so expensive.

          Yep, at this budget, AMD wins hands down.

          I also missed where the parent comment said "casual gaming".

        • +1 vote

          How can you get the 10% gift cards?

          • +1 vote

            @Julesxzzz: Every now and then when Ebay has a 10% off everything promotion .
            Do a search for 10% ebay . Gift cards are usually excluded but not always .

    •  

      The difference is negligible for gaming. Most games don't even fully utilize the CPU that it becomes a serious problem. For that reason I'd go AMD because it's cheaper and an all around good CPU.

  •  

    Good price. I'm currently building my own PC and have already hit that amount for the following parts:

    CPU $ 212 (Ryzen 5 2600)
    Motherboard $ 155 (MSI B450M Mortar)
    Case $ 89 (Thermaltake Core V21)
    RAM (16GB) $ 212 (2x8GB DDR4 2666mhz)
    PSU $ 55 (Bronze 80%)

    And I still need a hard drive and video card.

    •  

      RX590 is coming out, try and go for that if the price is good. I've seen people say it's almost as good as a 1070.
      As for HDD, there are a million deals for SSDs right now just grab one of them and then grab a 1TB HDD for 50 bucks and you're done.
      Just my two cents.

    • +3 votes

      This is what I did a week ago:
      AMD Ryzen 5 2600 $204
      ASUS Prime B450M-A $124
      HyperX Predator 2X8GB DDR4 3200MHz $238
      Samsung 860 Evo 1TB SSD $212
      ASUS Radeon RX 580 Dual OC 4GB $249
      Fractal Design Define F5 $99
      Seasonic Focus Gold 450W $99

      Plus a network/bluetooth adapter for $60.
      Could have saved $50 with the GPU but wanted the dual mDP ports of the dual 580.
      Plus got $50 for AC:O back.
      Very happy with the system so far. I know the parts that I've got, it's quiet, and runs extremely well, even though it costs about $450 more.

      But yeah, if you're after a cheaper price, and aren't too fussed, the system posted is amazingly worth it.

      •  

        Yep. If you want good stuff, this build should not even be considered. But if you just something that can do the job, this is well worth the money.

    Previous deal arrived yesterday. Turned her on and it sounded like a wire was hitting the fan. Now it's a click every 10 seconds.

      That sucks, sounds like a lose cable. If you don't know how to investigate, contact the seller (don't want to ruin your warranty)

    • +1 vote

      What IDNKW said: If you're not PC-savvy, or don't have the time, or just cbf, arrange a warranty claim with the seller. That's the safer but slower option.

      If you do know what you're doing - and I take no responsibility if anything happens - it sounds like a loose wire which is a 10 minute, open case, cable-manage, close case affair.

      Where are you located? Do what I did and make friends with a local internet cafe or get something from gumtree and ask the dude to meet at your house and have a look at your computer.

      I did both and now they are ozbargainer's and good friends of mine.

    • +1 vote

      I messaged you late this afternoon after I heard about this. Give us a call in the morning and well get it sorted. Agree it sounds like a wire shaken loose in transport so we'll guide you through looking around and hopefully sorting. Cheers, Luke

  •  

    Alright. This sounds like a good deal. But one question to ask, I'm no eBay Plus member, how's the Plus subscription going? Is it worth it to get one? Been missing up on the good deals like the SSD but can't justify if Plus is great

    •  

      That is how they are marketing it … gradually migrating all the deals from normal users to the ebay Plus users . .. basically everyone is going to end up having one subscription. :)

      Add another 8gb of ram and there is nothing this machine can't handle at 1080p smoothly.

      You don't even need a ssd these days.. trust me

      Source: owner of 1000+ steam games with over 100 installed on a shucked Seagate 8tb external hdd from Amazon U.S. (before the new Amazon policy change and new import laws) cost me $240 AUD.

      Games load still very fast even the map changes and etc.. It is still very much great. Mechanical that is.

      Just have a 500gb SSD if you want for your Windows OS boot drive but mechanical HDD for everything else.

  •  

    OMG. I just realized, this is almost part-for-part the exact same build I put together less than a year ago, for about $500 more.

    Any good for gaming can it run games?

  •  

    Hi guys

    I’m a newbie in pc specs but am looking for a gaming pc to play games like Dota 2 - thinking of making a comeback

    Would I be a fool to get this pc just based in the positive comments in this thread?

    Would making a purchase just based off trust on the ozbargain community be a foolish thing to do?

    Any help would be great!

    •  

      If you are happy to spend the money, this system will run every game possible at 1080p 60fps. DOTA should get like 200+ fps.

      you still need to get a windows operating system and install it yourself.

      •  

        If this system runs games at 60fps and dota gets like 200+ fps, does that mean that this system runs Dota at a lower level - not optimal performance for Dota?

        Is it easy to install windows OS?

    •  

      if you're serious about dota, intel has the lead because its entirely cpu bound, more cores/threads help, check out the late game section for the real stress test:

      https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7dwiwAqV73Y

      intel is a bit more expensive tho, might be worth waiting for the new amd cpus around mid next year.

      •  

        thanks guys, i'm not too fused so long as i'm able to play the game smoothly and that the PC will last for a while.

        Sorry another question - should i get a dedicated gaming graphics card with this or will the dedicated graphics that comes with it be sufficient?

        •  

          rx 580 is a good value low-mid tier card, can handle 1080p well, dota should have no problems.

        •  

          This deal has a dedicated graphics card, the RX 580 (great card).

          Sorry, read that wrong. The 580 will be more than ideal, it's roughly equivalent to the GTX 1060.

    •  

      If you have patience and know how you could pprobably save $100-150 getting deals on gumtree but it is not for the faint hearted and there is always chance for things to go wrong.

      This deal is ok value a bit inflated to fill the sellers pockets but still great for simplicity and convenience zero thought involved just purchase plug and play.

  •  

    Any idea what brand of GPU and other hardware will be in these bundles? Is it worth it even if you don't know what brands will be inside?

    •  

      According to their ebay page:
      Components:

      Your system will ship with components from the following leading brands, depending on available stock:

      RAM: Primarily: TeamGroup Also used: Crucial

      Motherboard: Biostar A320

      Power Supply: Primarily used: TechFast, Thermaltake, Aywun

      Graphics Card: Biostar Gaming

      Solid State Drive: Primarily used: Allied PC Also used: Crucial, Western Digital, SanDisk

      Hard Disk Drive: Primarily used: Seagate Also used: Western Digital

      Individual component brand requests cannot be catered to at this stage.

    Bought!

    Haven't been in IT for getting on 10 years now so really appreciate everyone's perspective and ideas. I have little idea about parts these days but I know I can trust the OzBargain community.

    Really appreciate you all!

  •  

    Looks good but but I'm a sucker for Intel and Nvidia even though I know they are way overpriced.

    •  

      This seller does pretty cheap Intel/Nvidia systems too, check out their other items

    •  

      AMD is great for extreme budget builds and for presents for family and friends.

      If it is your own personal build Nvidia Intel all the way however the Ryzen 5 2600 is a beast imho only 5-10% behind in fps in some games from Intel at most and the trade off is productivity stuff like video and image editing rendering is boosted for Ryzen compared to single core performance king Intel.

      •  

        Also I am under the impression that AMD parts are loud when gaming or long time use, my current Intel/Nvidia is so quiet many times I forgot to turn it off.

        •  

          Possibly. To be honest I am out of the loop now or have forgotten which models are best for power consumption/noise/overclocking etc but I feel like when I did know it was always Nvidia and Intel.

    •  

      You might be a sucker for Intel, but Nvidia is pretty competitive here. A 1060 is generally better than a 580 and similarly priced.

      •  

        Tends to depend on the games. They're virtually equal in a "pile of games" comparison type thing.

        I'd absolutely give AMD the win for freesync though. Way cheaper than Gsync.

  •  

    Anyone know what cooler it comes with? Can it be overclocked with whatever stock cooler it comes with and the provided motherboard? Sorry haven't followed AMD cpus for a while, don't care about the warranty.

    OK A320 motherboard chip can't overclock. nvm.

    •  

      Comes with the ryzen stock cooler tmk. Apparently a great cooler, allows for a bit of overclocking (though as you said can't be done with the mobo)

  •  

    For those wondering the AMD RX 580 8gb is comparable to Nvidia's GTX 1060 6gb.

  •  

    It has ended :(

  •  

    Purchased one with no OS 2 weeks back and received the item yesterday.

    When I plug it to a monitor or TV.it says no signal and I have tried all outputs on the motherboard and GPU with no luck?

    Anyone else has similar issue or a solution? Thanks

  •  

    Just received mine. Exact same problem. Doesn't POST. Did they forget to upgrade the BIOS to actually support Ryzen 2 … ? Returning it. Ridiculous.

    btw it won't work connected to the motherboard, Ryzen has no integrated graphics. I've also tried DP, HDMI and DVI on the 580 and nothing.
