Just noticed decent price drop on this one compare to this deal for $1574 which comes with Battlefield V game & stack with another 5% eBay Gift Cards (Thanks to Doweyy) to bring the price further down.

Also, few of us were after 16GB RAM so feel free to add an upgrade for another 8GB RAM

Note : 10% Off code will expire tonight.

Enjoy :)

    Team 2400 name. Put it into eBay and you'll find the RAM you jeed for an extra 8 gigs. Comes in at a more reasonable $100.

    However, I'd advise you wait till you get the system in case they use alternative RAM.

    •  

      Would this Void the warranty tho? I get that its best to use the same RAM so i should definitely wait for my PC to come, but i am wondering if this would void the warranty if we add more ram ourselves but with exact same brand and model of ram one that already came with it. Maybe that's why they have options for upgrades with an higher price than buying ourselves which will let us keep the 1 year warranty with Tech fast. Thanks.

        I believe the rep has said something along the lines of - if it's found to be the problem the warranty will be void.

        Rep should pop in sooner or later to clarify though.

        I get that its best to use the same RAM

        Not really.

        All that happens is all the RAM runs as fast as the slowest … RAM module … stick.

        Sorry, stick sounds wrong.

        •  

          In theory. In practice I believe some sticks don't like to play nice together. Just simpler to get an identical stick when possible.

      •  

        Under australian consumer law a warranty cannot be voided by simply adding a stick of ram.

        • +1 vote

          The rep didn't say it'd void the manufacturer warranty on components, just the extra 1 year warranty offered on the whole system by techfast.

          I'm not an expert on ACL so I'm curious if it still applies in this particular case.

            @Saudade: Hi all, NW is right above - if any component not from us is found to be the cause of a warranty claim, the claim will certainly be affected. Wouldn't say a blanket void as there are a multitude of potential complicating factors, bit certainly an impact.

          • +1 vote

            @Saudade: I'd be more curious to hear if you were confident that any such warranty would be honoured, given the circumstances.

            The rep's response pretty much covers it. They won't be responsible for something you did not buy from them. To this day, not sure I've heard of a ram stick blowing up your system - so you should be safe.

        • +1 vote

          Oof to me. Bad phrasing there.

          Meant wouldn't be covered by, not void it.

          Was thinking void as in wouldn't be covered, not as in cancel.

    A GTX 2080 alone is worth like $1200 how is this a whole machine for less than $300 more?

    •  

      i dont know man that's the mystery with all these PC package deals

    •  

      Your quoting max price if purchased alone. It's not worth that post discount and stacked with discounted gift cards.

    •  

      Nope, prices start at 1000 exactly as far as what people on ebay paid.

    •  

      Because the rest of the components apart from teh CPU are trash. Check out linus's recent Walmart gaming PC video on youtube. I imagine these pc's are similar.

      • +1 vote

        They aren't garbage like the Walmart PCs… ironically based on the price.

        CPU, GPU, RAM and Mobo are from reputable sellers, though they're lower end parts then what you'd want for the higher end systems, (what do you expect for tiny prices like these?) they are more than adequate for the lower end systems.

        Case is adequate for the lower end systems, maybe also for higher end systems. PSU should be swapped, but even then you've got a 1 year warranty, so if you aren't being crazy it's a "when able to". SSD should be fine, doubt they'd be lesser than low end Kingston drives. Case fans are a pain though, fairly loud. Mind that, I've yet to hear proper pc case fans, so maybe that's me.

        TL;DR - the meh parts are more quality of life than critical (bar psu…why do they always skimp on the psu?!)

    Been watching these deals with great interest as Im down for a new 2070 or 2080. The general feedback so far has not been great regarding ETA…

    • +2 votes

      I think ETA/Delivery thing was with only Ryzen 5 2600 RTX 2080 here& here system due to high demand & Rep luketechfast seems responsive to address queries on previous deals. This should be fine.

      • +2 votes

        I bought the i7 8700 version on the 18th of November and have still not received mine but i have been in contact with luketechfast and got word last week that its in the queue for dispatch middle of this week so by tomorrow hopefully. It seems all versions of RTX 2080 are on the same queue. Luke is indeed very responsive and helpful in my own personal experience.

  •  

    That is an insane price…

  •  

    Not hating, but the parts seem like a lottery? How do you know what brand you're going to get? Legit question.

    •  

      We dont know, Its all about what kind of stock they have at the time of building the PC.

      •  

        Do we have the opportunity to reject it if it comes with a brand we don't like?

        •  

          "For any change-of-mind transactions after the item has been dispatched, before the 30-day period has ended, you may return the item to Tech Fast in which a full refund will be given which includes a minimum 15% restocking fee. All items must be unopened in the original packaging"

          I assume you can but will need to pay 15% 'restocking fee' and that in my opinion is not worth it. This is my 4th comment of the day and sadly new users of oz bargain are limited to 5 comments per day so i will probably not reply again, sorry :)

          • +2 votes

            @firsttimeuser7: If the system is sent, a change of mind would incur the restocking fee, yep. If it's still with us and canceled, no charge and someone else gets the system, easy done.

            For these systems, it's going to be overwhelmingly the build is:
            GPU: Galax Dual Fan
            PSU: 550W Allied, 750W Thermaltake Litepower
            SSD: Allied or generic
            RAM: TeamGroup or Crucial (just got a bulk lot of Crucial so using them currently but can't guarantee by the time new orders come in)

    •  

      Assume the worst parts and you'll get the best result.

      I believe the 2080's they've been using recently are biostar (dual fans), if that's what you were curious about.

      Otherwise, here's the parts I received:

      CPU - ryzen 3 2200g
      CPU fan - stock
      MoBo - ASUS Prime A-320M-E
      RAM - team group 1x8 2400 (ted48g2400c16bks)
      Storage - 120gb SSD, allied
      Graphics card - ASUS ROG STRIX RX 570
      Case - Leaper PRO RGB Case
      Power Supply - Allied 550w.
      OS - Windows (unactivated as of now)

      Not hating, but the parts seem like a lottery? How do you know what brand you're going to get? Legit question.

      When you buy a car from the dealership, do you care about what brand the tyres are, what about the spark plugs and who makes the radiator? When you buy a Macbook, do you care about whether the panel is from LG or Samsung, or whether the SSD was from Crucial or Sandisk?

      You're buying a car, laptop, PC (in this case)…etc. Fair enough if you want to pick your parts, there's plenty of custom system builders out there, or you can always buy your own parts and build it yourself.

      •  

        Those car parts are generally well established brands - people expect Bridgestone etc,along with competition the manufacturer does not want warranty issues due to random brands causing labour charges and their own name being damaged. Not sure about Great Wall, but other asian manufacturers use established brands you expect.

        •  

          All of the things you say apply here. Ultimately Techfast is responsible if there are any RMA's, so they would also want to minimise the chances of that happening. It's a box PC, no different to your HP, Lenovo, Dell…etc. boxes. Nobody ever cares about who manufactures the motherboards for Dell's PCs.

          •  

            @p1 ama: In an ideal world, but looks like they are having some issues - see the post about the mess of a machine someone received. Considering the possible financial cost to the seller, the scale is very different when comparing a car to a PC that uses the absolute minimum costing components available.

            •  

              @Major Mess: Not too sure what the issue there is? It seems like AusPost screwed up somewhere by either dropping it or kicking it around (who knows). The seller took it back and looks like they've all been able to resolve the issue amicably.

              • +1 vote

                @p1 ama: There were also missing screws and part of the motherboard backplate looks to have been bent up during installation, hard to blame poor QC on Auspost…

                Either way, they offer really good prices and the fact a rep is active in these threads is a sign that any issues will be sorted, even if it takes a while. II'd take the punt if I needed a new PC, can't even build one with the same specs for anywhere near this price.

                • +2 votes

                  @shtgnjns: We're providing a new case, new PSU at the customer's request in this case. The backplate is a bit of padding inside the IO shield provided in the mobo box, on the HDMI port, that should be pushed down but was missed. And yes, missing screws which was an oversight. I've had a word to all as QC needs to be higher than that. I was away, I'll blame that.

      • +1 vote

        People here typically care a bit more.

        For the most part there's nothing to worry about. But when we're talking about the PSU, it's more on par with a cars engine or airbags. You want to make sure the thing'll work well for a long bit.

        Agreed with the warranty part though.

        •  

          People here typically care a bit more.

          And I don't think there's anything wrong with that. Buy your own parts and build it yourself. I do that too and then I get to control exactly what goes into my build.

          What I'm having an issue with is the fact that these same questions come up every time for Techfast PC's, but never seem to come up for a Lenovo, HP, or Dell build.

  •  

    Is a 24" monitor included? It's in the item description title:

    Hey guys check the forums where a person had received theirs yesterday from Techfast
    Link: https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/422397
    Hes had a bad experience and this is starting to scare me because i wouldn't like this to happen to me. Hes also added pictures of the PC itself and i myself might do this if you would like. Well this is my 5th comment and wont be able to reply. I may get mine this week also if star track delivers within 1-2 days by Friday hopefully. Will keep you guys updated on what my PC is like after i get it.

      Honestly that seems more like the fault of Australia post for smashing up his PC than it is with the vendor.

      Let this be a warning to others who bought one of these PCs that if it's damaged in transit DON'T take it apart or try to fix it. Just be patient and go through normal returns channels.

      • +2 votes

        Yes, that was the first I'd heard of this user's system. I don't think they contacted us regarding it. But yes, badly damaged in transport which is damned disappointing. It doesn't happen often though, particularly now with new packaging. But yes, any transport damage is of course warrrantable and should be reported to us straight away. And yes, no self disassembling unless under instruction or there will likely be warranty complications.

        Auspost is usually fine but they are sometimes really rough. I once had a parcel broken in half…

        +Suadade Have a look at the pics. The box appears OK, and the issues were not due to a drop etc.

        •  

          Don't know how you can say that for certain given there's only one picture of the box and its got other boxes covering it.

    Comparison on the performance of the i5 8400 vs the Ryzen 5 2600 from the previous deals.

    https://www.techspot.com/review/1627-core-i5-8400-vs-ryzen-5...

    Note that unless you upgrade the RAM the 2600 will probably perform a bit worse than the benchmarks above.

    Also you will not be able to overclock The 2600 as they did for some of their tests as the a320 doesn't support overclocking.

    Any RTX 2080Ti prebuilts?

  • +3 votes

    @rep pls keep doing these deals until Feb, I'll buy one then <3

  •  

    Finally pulled the trigger on it after waiting so long. I think the 8400 drop in price pushed it over the line. all up $1444 with the discounted ebay vouchers and cash rewards. For those skeptical - the equivalent MSY build will set you back over $1800.. before their building effort, warranty and shipping. Considering i5-8400 is only $44 more than the R5-2600 (MSY has $100 difference), it is a bargain for sure. Probably the best value to date..

      Grats on the new PC! I hope i get mine soon :)

    •  

      Grats I agree this is great value.

      The only other deal I would consider was their previous

      $1359.15 Ryzen 5 2600 RTX 2080 8GB 120GB SSD 8GB DDR4 Plus Battlefield V (ebay.com.au) - RGB

      https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/418640

      Same build just Ryzen 5 2600 vs Intel i5 8400 with a $125 pricier option for the Intel route.

      I love Intel and the gaming edge Intel has over Ryzen would push me towards Intel every time but for those who might be doing other tasks that Ryzen deal was such a great bargain not that this isn't also.

      It is crazy to think that the RTX 2080Ti upgrade would be anywhere from $800 - $1000 AUD increase for just 30% increase in performance but I guess that is what you pay to play with the best of the best.

      •  

        There's a Titan RTX , that is best you can buy

        •  

          Watching some YouTube reviews comparing the 2080ti to the titan v put the 2080ti ahead even with it being almost half price.

      •  

        Already "over budget" getting the 2080. lol. I typically hang around the 60's and 70's series of NVidia cards or equivalent AMDs (admittedly, SLI them before). Don't typically to the 80's series except this time where it's probably bargain enough to take considering the CPU is $359 already from MSY and (exact) GPU being $1199 (cost less for the entire unit than to buy the major two components separately).

        •  

          Definitely this bargain is a steal. If I could sell my current desktop I would trade up to this one in a heartbeat.

          I would pay an extra $200-400 for a Rtx 2080ti and 8700k upgrade though that is crazy wishful thinking.

          I think a pre-built with that would cost maybe around $2300 maybe total.

          •  

            @AlienC: I should have waited and get an 2080ti prebuilt! Still time to refund my purchase hehe. Also I think it would be much over 2000 because I bought the i7 8700 version and that was rrp of 1999 and 1799 after discount but did get to 1749 with battlefield v included… something that I sadly won't get with mine which is depressing

    Purchased a system from an earlier deal. Arrived today but missing the HDD chassis and spare SATA cable which I need to put in secondary HDD. Also installed (not activated) Windows 10 Home when I rang up and organised Windows 10 Pro.
    Emailed the service desk. Hopefully they will send out the missing parts soon.

    •  

      First of all thanks for letting us know. Did you get the rtx 2080 versions? So your the second person i heard off that came with missing items. Hows the system running? I hope its running good for you.
