Entry Level AMD Gaming PC: R3-2200G RX 570 4GB: $489 // R5 2600 Version $658 + $29 Delivery @ TechFast


Hi all,

Another entry level/budget gaming system, listed here as a base spec with upgrade options available on most component categories. $210 discount with R3220GRX570 brings it to $489.

Spec: Ryzen 3 2200G | RX 570 4GB | 8GB 2400MHz RAM | 120GB SSD | A320M Mobo | 550W PSU | Leaper Small Form Factor Case

Edit: I've added the Ryzen 5 2600 option for +$169.

Reiterating that Biostar GPUs are unlikely to be used as we have none in stock. Sapphire or MSI or similar is more likely.

Delivery $29.

I know plenty of people are keen for aftermarket 5700/5700XT cards but supply has not increased enough for us to push a deal on them here due to anticipated sales numbers. We'll post that when supply improves.

  • Okay what the hell. This is a ~$500 rig, delivered, that has a RX570. It probably games the same (or better) than my $1,500 rig I put together a couple years back with a 6GB GTX1060.

    Oh just a tip:

    Reiterating that Biostar GPUs are unlikely to be used as we have none in stock. Sapphire or MSI or similar is more likely.

    Unless you can GUARANTEE it won't be a Biostar GPU, always add something (in bold) like "BUT WE CAN'T GUARANTEE THIS". I know you already didn't guarantee anything, and you only said it's "unlikely" but a lot of people will read that and assume they'll get a Sapphire or MSI GPU.

      Appreciate the feedback. We're not buying cards from Biostar and have no plans to at this stage, but things can change. It's unlikely though.

      • Ah fair enough. Nice. Makes me sad how fast tech progresses though haha.

      • when are you starting to sell individual parts like motherboard, cpu, etc.

        i know you mentioned they aren't as competitive as system sale but would like to know if you plan to do it.

        you can even take some market share off MSY / Umart on parts sale.

  • Aww man. Give us a 2600 system please

    • Which GPU?

      • Same build as this but with a better CPU would be pretty awesome!

          Added Ryzen 5 2600 option for $169

            • @jayz: I tried to spec out a 2600 + 580 system earlier. Ended up at $1,100 (pre shipping, which could be $40 - $60 to me). Their 3600 + 1660 build is $800

              Sure, they're higher quality parts. But I can guarantee you most users won't care about quality beyond it not detonating after warranty (hence OEM sales).

              But even just looking at this one. $150 for the 2200g, $200 for the 570. $350. $50 for the mobo, $400. $50 for the RAM, $450. $30 for the SSD, $480. That's $20 for the PSU and Case. Of course it's also pre-built, typically a $100 charge. I can also say that while the case isn't phenomenal, it's a hell of a lot better then $20. PSU would also be $40 minimum.

              They're still beating what you could build it for yourself. Very impressive considering how low margin a PC like this would be even at RRP. Compared to PCs at this tier from a "bigger brand" and it's the best deal by far. Hell, even the DIY "optiplex + GPU" is still being beaten by them.

              • @N1NJ4W4RR10R: I think I worded it wrong. The prices aren't as good as they used to be.
                For example, their last system with the exact same specs but with 240GB SSD was $579 (also direct from their site). Their last same spec system on ebay was $539.

              @jayz: Happy to take on board but I feel like no value anymore is something of an overstatement. We're the cheapest in market by a very long way.

              I did put it out there months ago that prices are rising due to dollar and supply issues and there's nothing we can do about that, but we're all about keeping prices as low as we can get them.

  • Hey Luke,
    Thanks for the update on the 5700xt. Any guess based on what your suppliers are saying for when those deals might drop?

  • I got exact same system but with Ryzen 3 2300x + Biostar GPU for $440. Bargain.

  • What's the point of the 2200G if it has RX570 discrete graphics? Or is the 2200G just that cheap? (or am I missing something?)

    • It's just that cheap :)

    • 2200G iGPU although very good for the price, is more "light gaming" or 720p gaming for the most part.
      The RX570 would be entry level and a really good value one at that :-)

      • I guess my question stemmed more from wouldn't it be cheaper to just have a CPU without iGPU?

        (I was going to suggest 2600 but realised that a 2600 probably costs more than the 2200G)

    Thought I'd put it in to PCPP just for kicks, turns out $100 cheaper including delivery and build costs!

    Looks good to me :)

    • I don't dispute the value offered by TechFast but surely the cheapest case out there can't be a branded Cooler Master case for $54 right? I would've assumed there are some really cheap (and nasty) cases… at least based on a certain LTT video recently.

      • There are cheaper cases, but I selected a few decent brands for the filter and then sorted from low to high, because Techfast's case isn't shit tier, albeit it's not the best. However even if you shaved off the entire $50 for the case it would still be more than Techfast's price, so I just left it, only made the search as an idle curiosity anyway.

        • Fair enough. I actually think the Techfast cases look decent (they aren't outlandish/ugly) - the Leaper RGB case they have on some of their other deals actually looked quite decent to me despite what one Youtuber said, but then maybe if you are buying it with the intention of upgrading, the cases aren't the easiest to build in.

          • @jace88: Yep, I saw Rob's video as well. They look decent compared to the other cheap shit. But definitely better cases out there, both in terms of practicality in terms of airflow/watercooling support as well as aesthetically.

  • Hi All,

    I keep seeing Tech Fast's offers and they seem great. Im looking for a PC for my dad (70yo) who will mainly want it for internet browsing, email, word processing and youtube/netflix. No gaming. Id be looking to give it 16gb RAM and perhaps larger capacity storage than on offer here.

    Would this system suffice? Am i better off with something else?

    Appreciate the comments and suggestions.


    • Hi there, I'd actually recommend a R3 2200G system with no GPU, the best deal for which we have on eBay here and is bundled with 480GB SSD: http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/193075148062

      with this 16GB DDR4 upgrade: https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/193075149165

      which comes to $458 with code PIZZAPIE


      • Great, thanks for that Luke. Just going to put that order through now. Incidentally, id like to also add an optical drive however when i click on the 'system upgrades' link relating to dvd drives, i get an empty ebay storefront page. Any way to remedy this?

        • We don't have any external optical drives on hand at the moment sorry. The cases don't take internal drives - they are becoming less and less common with cloud and USB storage so many cases don't have optical bays.

          You could definitely get USB powered external ones elsewhere though.

  • Hi Luke, could you confirm if your A320M motherboard supports ryzen 3000 series? I mean I see A320M as the default option for your 3600 builds but just want to make sure.
