    I'd be careful ordering from them.

    Terrible communication and they sent me a damaged PC and have done nothing to rectify that since, i'm the middle of the return claim with eBay/Paypal currently.

      There is a possibility that system may have damaged during transit. I would suggest to reach out to rep luketechfast & he has been very helpful in past deal to sort out the issues.

      Definitely. Please PM me as I've not heard of this instance.

      Go with PC Case Gear they have incredibly good customer service and packaged all my systems incredibly carefully. Also has a 2 year warranty that covers shipping etc.

        PC Case Gears "Ready to Ship" has their lowest GTX 1060 at 1449, However with techfast you could have gotten an RTX 2080 system for only 1279 from their previous popular deal! I think if anyone wants performance for their money then the RTX 2080 deal is the way to go and you could always pay $220 you saved by replacing the Power Supply as that's the only immediate component that needs to be replaced according to most that bought the techfast deals. Techfast, Thanks once again for these great deals and i am very happy with my purchase no problems whatsoever! Also sorry i know that deals gone now but either way i think that deal was the best you could have gotten so far from any Prebuilt systems out there!

          Cheap, but pretty sketchy, my psu died and they left out mobo screws, i recommend saving a few extra dollars and build a system yourself with parts from a reputable store.

            @Yoell: Everyone has the option to build themselves a much cheaper PC. However prebuilts are targeted towards the people like myself who is not expereinced with building computers and techfast has the best bang for buck deals that give the best performance for gaming computers. Even the ebay prebuilts I didn't find to be this good with etc 2080 and so techfast certainly was the best option for a prebuilt last year at an affordable price in Australia. I am sorry once again about your system not having good quality control but I am sure they have learned their lesson and Luke has said previously after a simlar occurrence that hes set an higher quality control policy for techfasts builders and I think mine was a fine example of that since I haven't found any faults so far. Also if you were buying an RTX 2080 anyways then you could have spent 1279 which is around the RRP of the card anyways without codes and got an freebie computer and so end up with two computers either way with techfasts most popular deal!

          Yeah that $1279 deal was a crazy deal just for the Ryzen CPU and 2080 alone. Even if you binned the rest (which you wouldn't other than PSU).

        PCCG were rubbish when I tried returning them headphones that didn’t fit me. I tried telling them that you are entities to return any products but the refused. Luckily the manufacturer took them back. Never buying anything from them again.

        • +1 vote

          Why were you negged for having a bad experience with PCCG? Thanks for telling us your experience with them. If they had 30 day return policy then they should have taken it back. Well all seems good now. I just don't know why others voted negatively for your comment.

          I had a PSU die years ago, which took the mobo and damaged GPU too.

          They were an absolute PITA to deal with regarding the GPU replacement. They tried repairing it first and the quality of work was bad. Came back all scratched up and performing worse than it did when I sent it there.

          These were reputable high end parts too.

          That said, never had issues with PCCG since but I've not had to return anything either.

        The shipping is so stupidly expensive their service had better be godly.

    •  

      Same here. No video output from the PC at all, and no response to my eBay claim except to ask if I was plugging the video cable into the motherboard.

      Also noticed that the '550W' power supply included only puts out 360W on the 12V rail, and considering 550W is already below what's recommended for a 2080 this is worrying to say the least. This power supply doesn't even include enough PCIe connectors for the card - they are adapted from molex connectors.

    Hmmm looks like I can add OS, keyboard, mouse and monitors without any additional cost for the second system.

  • +1 vote

    If these techfast deals had a decent name-brand PSU in them I reckon they would sell a lot better. But I really cant justify buying a system that doesnt have a rock solid power supply, no matter how great a bargain it is…

      How difficult is it to buy a PSU and swap it out yourself? Is techfast unable to do this?

    •  

      But there are other big companies that do this also! i have seen others complain about Dells prebuilt PSU also and i am sure there are others. Is this not true?

      • +1 vote

        Dell's, from what I've heard, are usually slightly better than the generic no name brands and are usually fit for purpose. Often they only provide just enough power to cover the included specs leaving zero room for upgradability. But your right, pretty much all prebuilt pcs cut corners and have compromises or unbalanced specs in order to give them a pricing edge. Its just tech fast have had some amazingly good pricing with the 20 series nvidia card builds and if they were to bump the price up a bit to include a decent PSU i think they would still be able to undercut the competition while giving their customers more peace of mind…

        •  

          Hmmm, I am ready to pull the trigger on one of these systems but all this talk about bad PSUs is giving me second thoughts. Is it just the upgradability I'm sacrificing or will these bad PSUs just die and take the system with it?

          •  

            @tivo: My concern is that the PSU will shit itself soon after the warranty period, which I'm guessing is only 1 year. A decent PSU has a 10 year warranty. These concerns may be unfounded, but until Luke tells us exactly what PSU they use so I can research reviews and reliability, then I'm staying away

              @Riczter: I have purchased one of their 2080 systems previously and can confirm that the 'No-name' power supply is actually a Allied-550W-ATX-Gaming-Power-Supply.

          •  

            @tivo: Bad PSU and upgradabilty.

          • +2 votes

            @tivo: Having recently experienced a PSU killing multiple other parts, I definitely recommend spending a little extra and getting a high quality one.

            These computers seem like they'd still be pretty cheap after upgrading it, at least.

          • +7 votes

            @tivo: I'd say swap out the psu when good psu are on sale. You have 1 yr to upgrade before coz thats when the warranty expires and you don't want to take risk with bad psu.

            •  

              @134679: This is a man/woman who knows what they're talking about.

            • +1 vote

              @134679: This may still void warranty as the case might have door tamper-seals hence will break when the door opens.
              It seems like this seller is providing cases with its integrated PSU rather then adding one.
              This is something that the seller should opt for an upgrade or provide more info about how they can provide a better PSU so it doesn't void warranty or if the customer upgrades it, it is acceptable… and in writing.
              Tbh, a RTX2080 running with a generic case 550W PSU is madness!

              Cheers

                @vinni9284: Rep didn't say swapping or adding stuff into the build will void the warranty, but it's pretty grey.

                My secret tip would be to swap out the psu immediately but still keep the techfast psu until their 1 yr warranty expires. So if the pc runs into trouble within the warranty period, you can put the techfast psu back into pc and get warranty repair. They don't know you have changed psu that way hey.

                •  

                  @134679: Yeah i hear you.
                  But what I mean is that the PC Box side door may have stickers (end of the door to the back of the PC) that are hard to peel or when you try to open the door, they break and the PC seller knows that you have opened the door to tamper with the hardware. Just in case you have to return for a warranty repair.
                  This is what some PC sellers do to prevent any tampering that can void warranty.
                  Cheers

                    @vinni9284: Ah nah they have nothing like that. I have pc from them. You actually need to open the pc and take out the foam that's supporting the gpu before first use. Also, warranty void if removed stickers are all bullshit. It's just to scare people off.

                  •  

                    @vinni9284: I've never seen things like that in desktops from sellers like tech fast etc. Only laptops etc, but the stickers are bullshit and it's not enforceable.

                  Under ACL they will have to prove that you replacing the PSU with a higher quality one caused the damage to whatever they are claiming has void warranty

                  @134679: My secret tip is that any components added that are found to be the cause of faults in systems may result in a warranty claim being denied or affected. 👍

    •  

      Regrettably this is just a pre-built thing. Why? Dunno. Regardless, generally the deal is good enough to just swap it out yourself with an $80-$100 PSU.

    I wish they let you upgrade a few extra components out. As it would be a good buy.
    Just need a upgrade motherboard and the Power supply and they be good budget rigs and possibly bit faster ram.

    •  

      Im just wondering what does the current setup is lacking that you need to upgrade these parts for a budget rig? The A320M motherboard has all major features and more than sufficient. 550W power is more than sufficient for a single card setup. Ram speed difference is arguably not noticeable.

      •  

        A320 stiffles amd chips, making them less value for money. A320 boards are generally only very slightly cheaper then b350.

        PSU can pop. Occasionally fries stuff. Generally not a problem in warranty, bar it frying extra parts you add and being an inconvenience. Outside of warranty, make sure it's swapped.

        I'd agree on RAM. 2400 isn't a big enough difference to complain about it in a value build. 8 vs 16 gb is a bit more of an argument, though it's still about a $100 difference, so understandable for value builds.

    Personally, for the past 10+ years, I've been making computers with cases that have supplied power supplies, IE thermaltake, CoolerMaster etc. Machines, many, for myself and others. Never had a problem. My most recent bulk however had a PSU without an PCIE power connector, so I bought a new 600 watt RGB 80plus for about $69 after discount code. My biggest issue with these machines isn't the PSU, it's the motherboards, the 2400mhz ram, and the 120gb SSD. All components I would actually swap out.

    •  

      2400mhz ram is fine enough for a value build IMO. SSD…eh? I get the problem, but ultimately a bigger drive is just convenience. Ultimately it's stuff that'd be niceif it was better, but fine if it isn't.

      The mobo though I completely agree with. A320 price vs b350 is so minimal, the loss of overclocking (and only a single chassis fan plug apparently!) Is not worth it. Can't speak for the intel side though.

  • +1 vote

    I would personally swap main ssd to a reputable brand and use existing one for a secondary ssd.
    Also, never cheap out on the MoBo and PSU; you will face a world of pain.

    would you recommend this pc for someone getting a pc for the first time?
