expired R5-3600 RTX 2080 SUPER Gaming PC [B350/16GB/240GB NVMe/750W 80+ Bronze]: $1649 + $29 Delivery @ Techfast

750
R53600-2080SUPER

Hi folks,

RTX 2080 SUPERs (MSI Ventus) have come into stock so we are now offering those in our R5 3600 build (previous deal now expired). Regular/vanilla RTX 2080s are essentially no longer available unless previously ordered, so due to manufacturing shifts SUPER is the new normal. I have been communicating with previous customers about supply for previous 2080 deals, and the absolute majority of due orders have shipped or are shipping this afternoon/tomorrow. [NVIDIA RTX promo games codes are being provided and should be available for this new deal (waiting for announcement from NVIDIA).]

Specs:
Ryzen 5 3600 | RTX 2080 SUPER (MSI Ventus or equivalent but absolute majority are MSI) | 16GB 2400MHz DDR4 | Biostar B45M2 mobo | 240GB NVME SSD | 750W 80+ Bronze PSU (vast majority Thermaltake Smart) | White Leaper Pro or Black Esports Pro case
Price: $1649
Link: https://techfast.com.au/collections/amd-systems/products/amd...

I've done the PCPartPicker sniff test and reckon we're all onto a winner here - $1976 retail: https://au.pcpartpicker.com/list/NsTCpG

If anyone would like clarification on existing orders please PM me and I'll get you sorted.

    Hey Luke you may want to go back through the listing as you have most things double listed

    Hopefully saves you the hassle of people ordering then firing up when it gets cancelled etc.

    (as much as I'd love getting 2 X 2080 supers as part of a build at that price 😄)

  •  

    Genuine question: Why such a large PSU? GPU draws maximum 250W and CPU draws maximum 200W. Even with overclocking, 5 case fans etc it can't possibly need any more than 500W under 100% synthetic load.

    Surely a 600W PSU would be perfectly adequate, and presumably cheaper.

      Because in every thread, people complain about it.

      • +1 vote

        I assume because people are unable to do basic calculations?

        I'd much prefer to have a lower wattage PSU that's properly sized to the build, and with higher quality and/or better efficiency, rather than a massively over-powered piece of junk.

        Fair enough - that makes sense.

        • +1 vote

          As a bonus, power supplies tend to be most efficient at ~50% load. This will fare much better than a 500W 80+ Bronze PSU if the system is only pulling around 450W.

          • +2 votes

            @Alzori: Interesting article on that here. Seems like there's a relatively wide range of efficient operation, but efficiency drops off steeply at lower power outputs like you might get at system idle. That would suggest that maybe a lower output PSU would end up being more efficient overall if your system isn't going to be under load all the time.

            • +1 vote

              @MetaAF: I feel the same! I would prefer a 600 or 650W gold vs 750 bronze for efficiency reason. But most people (including me) buy PSU keeping upgradibilty(CF/SLI) in mind. I myself have a 750W SSR-750FX for an old OCed 3570K and gtx 1080. Lol. :)

    •  

      It's a lower quality unit tmk, need headroom.

      A high quality 550w unit would easily handle this. But a low quality 750w unti should also be fine.

    •  

      PSUs are also more efficient, cooler, quieter and last longer when they aren't running near 100% capacity.

      The max wattage of each voltage rail also differs between models. Eg a 500w psu might be able to deliver up to 400w on the +12v rail.

    These always present as great value, but without specifying the parts used it becomes a lottery. Can't help but thinking the parts are just collections of low popularity stock that they purchased at a steal … meaning they were not popular for a reason.

    So many techfast builds recently I don't know which to pull the trigger on under 2k :/

    •  

      Most of them are pretty much done as they had regular 2080s which are all but over. This is the newest CPU, newest GPU, and higher base spec than previously for $150 more, so it's a bit of a ripsnorter.

    I think lots of people would opt for a memory speed upgrade if it was cheaper, on PCPP the difference between 2400 and 3200 is only $10 any chance of a discount on this upgrade. Also if anyone doesn't want to do any building HDD discounts to $50 & $80 would also be appreciated. Possibly offer a build with the faster ram and 2tb HDD for $100 more, I think it would prove to be quite popular?

    Just an idea

    Looks like a good deal to me, if you need more power than a 2080. But I honestly would recommend just waiting for a sale on a 2080 Ti and picking one of those up instead for $200 more. That's if you're building yourself, for $1600 it's great value :)

      Cheap mobo, RAM, PSU, case, fans, etc. Combine it with lower margins (it’s genuinely a good deal) and an OzBargain exclusive discount, and you do have a pretty good deal.

      The MSI Ventus is an entry level card, but MSI has reasonable build quality on all GPUs.

    Hey Luke, What are the chances of a 2070 Super build similar to this? Perhaps also swap the RAM to 3200MHz and it's starting to get very tempting. Cheers

    Congrats on a genuinely amazing deal. My own build that I’m working on so far, even with savvy eBay deal hunting, is coming out to $2000… for 3700X and 2070 Super.

    So yeah, nice one. But I am purposefully spending $250 ish extra on quality mobo, PSU, 3200 RAM, etc.

        Gigabyte Windforce 2070 Super (eBay) $751
        Amazon.com.au 3200 Ram $230 for 32 GB

        Leaves you $360 for the SSD, PSU, and case. Easily achievable.

  • +2 votes

    To everyone else, TL;DR this isn't great value, here's an alternative build with a reliable named PSU, MB, RAM, SSD, and case with an added fan, you'll have to build it, but you'll also have twice the storage, faster ram, a better case and PSU with all of the other components and from reputable brand names to go back to if a component doesn't work. With Techfast, it's all on them - https://au.pcpartpicker.com/list/3F89jy

    Dear Techfast,

    I'm a PC enthusiast, and I'd like to give you some constructive criticism, while also serving as a warning to other consumers looking to buy a product similar to this.

    Your case in the picture, the "TechFast Leaper Pro RGB M-ATX Case - White", doesn't appear to have much room for airflow, where it has some airflow (openings on the front panel at the top and bottom) it isn't clear what dust filtration is there either, or if these filters can be easily taken out and cleaned.

    On your configurator you list an AMD B350M board, I don't know why it's a B350 board when it's 2019, yes with a bios update it will work with Ryzen 3000, but a B450 board would be a better choice, and a $99 upgrade is silly, it's at most a $40-$50 upgrade on a B350 board, they're both cheap. My B450 board above costs $130 in total, does your B350 cost $30? I'd hope not.

    Your RAM speed of 2400MHz will hinder a Ryzen system much more than an intel one, recent tests from the community have shown a significant boost in performance by overclocking memory on Ryzen, particularly the 3000 series since it is yet again more stable, you should only be offering the 3000MHz kit, as many of your consumers won't overclock RAM at all, so if you are kind enough to import the XMP settings for them with that kit, they'll not lose too much performance, at least. Once again, no brand name given.

    A 240GB SSD is barely any storage in 2019, at least 1x 1TB HDD, or a 480GB SDD on its own would be a much better option. Yet again, no brand name given. And is it actually NVMe? Or is it a SATA M.2? It should be a SATA M.2 at this price range, there's no point paying for speed over quantity, when there isn't enough quantity.

    You don't ship with an OS, System Integrators can buy Windows 10 very cheaply, and pass that onto the consumer with a small margin for much less than the $169 you want for Home edition, probably half to a third of that should be added to the total cost and Windows included.

    PSU really needs to have its brand listed, all of the components are being powered by it, if it fails and your warranty for the system has expired, I would hope some name on the unit can be read, so the consumer if they can, have the opportunity to return this to the real OEM.

      Not sure why you're getting down voted for giving good advice.

      • +2 votes

        Because this system's target audience isn't someone that would build it themselves. On top of the already higher price $300 more expensive, tack on $100 for someone to build it for you. Ends up being expensive.

        •  

          ALSO if you DO WANT to build it yourself and something goes wrong. YOU have to troubleshoot it and/or pay someone else to LIKE ME.

          OR when you buy this and something goes wrong like BSOD you can send it back to them and they fix it.

          Which one is easier… Yupp.

          I built mine and now my gf saw me go through troubleshooting and its such a headache.

          I just advised her to buy these techfast builds instead.

    • +2 votes

      Personally I'm building my own as well rather than a tech fast build but I can still see the merit in grabbing one of these.

      Benefits of a solid price/performance and prebuilt with warranty will outweigh the negatives for a lot of people

    • +12 votes

      Tl:dr: More money = 'better' parts obviously

      This system isn't targetted at you or me. Obviously you can build a PC with better components for more money, your example PC is also $300 more expensive even before shipping, add onto that needing to build yourself/pay someone to build it. For a pre build solution this is quite good value, this business isn't a charity and I assume already run on low profit margins.

      In terms of your comments about some parts I will tack on a few of my 2c.

      Case - Really doesn't matter. Looks like it would have enough airflow, and I assume it would have been tested to some degree to make sure this is the case.
      Mobo - As you said it works with a BIOS update, I don't see the problem. I have a B350 waiting to run a 3600.
      RAM - I agree with you on this one, not sure how much it would add to the final cost though.
      SSD - 480GB obviously would be better but how much would it add to the cost? Most people will install windows, install a few games and that's it.
      OS - As I said before they aren't a charity, software is where most make their money. People who are savvy enough will know where to get cheap keys and one's who don't pay retail, simple.
      PSU - It says vast majority are thermaltake which is a reputable brand.

      Always has to be someone crapping on a company when they try and actually give deals on ozbargain.

        To be fair to them, I get where they're coming from. Just doesn't seem like they get the intended audience of these PCs - the more casual or budget oriented crowd.

      • +1 vote

        Thanks for the response, whole point of making a statement is to have a conversation, and I mostly agree with you, since there's a current coupon this build is 'ok', my pricing was comparing to their retail build, what I should've done is speced their PC on their site to match mine, then seen what I would've needed to do to build a PC at the $1700 range. Fair points.

        To your specific 2c though

        Case - really does matter actually, it's a big deal, if you aren't getting good airflow into your system and don't have dust filtration, you'll end up with a hot system that gets hotter over time. Aesphetic are fine, but if you don't have ventilation somewhere in the case, a hot box will just get hotter, it's especially important if you're not an enthusiast that cleans out their PC every couple of years.

        Mobo - True, I wouldn't blame a smart PC builder who on their own had a B350 and upgraded bios, then put a 3600 in it, but those motherboards are coming up to 3 years old now, the B450 series is already a year, nearly 2 years on, the right board is really a B550, but it probably won't exist because of the heat concerns of PCI-E Gen 4.0

        RAM - Something but not a lot, on their website they offer 3000 as an upgrade, it's an inflated price though so in reality $30-40 is fair, $50 might be ok.

        SSD - Should be roughly $37, here's the lowest price SSD at 240GB, same model as I picked but the 240GB version https://au.pcpartpicker.com/product/mdc48d/crucial-bx500-240...

        OS - So its ok to punish consumers for their ignorance? Not it's possible, it clearly is, and some will get stung, but is it right and should we let it happen without at least making people aware? Sir, that is not the ozbargain way imo. I think a fair deal where the S.I. buys it at a fraction of that cost, then integrates it into the final product without a significant markup ($169 is about a 300% markup on what these keys regularly cost S.I.s), would be ok to me, even $80 or $100 at the most would be an ok charge.

        PSU - I like your comment here, because they say 'vast majority' to avoid themselves having to commit to always using a named brand, why aren't they all Thermaltake? Why aren't they ALL MSI Ventus 2080tis? Because then if your system doesn't get X part they can come back and say 'well we said most, not all'. They need to be called up on this, imo.

        Yeah this is why I want people to know what they're getting, it's a "deal" its an "ok" deal, but an informed customer is a happy one.

          just a note with your SSD choice, the BX500 is a SATA SSD, the one in this build is an NVMe M.2 SSD. There are noticeable performance differences between both, yes a SATA SSD is much faster than your average HDD, but the NVMe M.2 SSD is considerably faster than that.

          If you just wanted the cheapest option for an SSD for baseline SSD performance, sure, go for the BX500. But I honestly don't think you can compare your pick to the one in this deal.

          •  

            @casimirday: Yes I'm glad you pointed that out. For professional workloads, I'm sure NVMe makes a difference and the difference would add up. For gaming though? Waste of money, possibly some larger texture games may load a few (1-3) seconds faster, but mostly you'd be hard pressed to notice the difference, the budget is much better off being allocated to higher capacity than to NVMe vs SATA in my opinion.

      Don't forget to think about shipping costs, you've included a build from 4 different merchants which means 4 sets of shipping costs. That could easily amount to $50-100 more

  •  

    Any chance of getting an idea of what model/brands I would be getting if I upgraded to a 2080Ti and an X570 motherboard?

  •  

    Hi Luke i might have emailed you, but is it possible to upgrade the CPU as well at extra cost?

    Thanks

  •  

    I'm in a bit of a pickle here trying to decide which way to go and was hoping you savvy Ozbargain folk could help a brother out.

    I have built PCs before but can't spare the time these days, so I was looking for a pre-built system months ago and ended up buying this:

    Dell Inspiron 5676 Gaming Desktop Ryzen 7 8GB RAM 256GB SSD AMD RX 580

    I thought I only wanted to use it for work (mostly software dev - Visual Studio, SQL Server, etc.) with possibly some light gaming. So I up and installed Apex Legends. Big mistake.

    So, I'm now looking to push more FPS at higher detail, 1080p on a 144 hz monitor.

    Do I:

    a. upgrade the Dell with a GPU like the RX 5700, upgrade the RAM (max supported is 2666 MHz), and probably the PSU;
    or
    b. sell the Dell and buy one of these systems?

    If I do go for one of these systems, which would you recommend?

    I'm guessing I should probably go for a Ryzen 7 processor for the extra threads that would be utilised on the productivity side of things.

    So is it this one with a processor upgrade (if that's even possible, as per the comment above), the R7 3700X | RTX 2080, or just the cheaper Ryzen 7-2700 | RX 5700?

    I would upgrade the RAM to 3200 MHz either way.

    Thanks

    • +3 votes

      If you also want the productivity side of things, nothing at the moment for the price/performance beats ryzen. Are you maxing out the current CPU with your workload and would a better CPU actually benefit the workload?
      From having a quick look, if anything the 8GB of ram with the productivity side will be the bottleneck at the moment, 2x8GB 3000Mhz+ sticks would be a good upgrade (if your current motherboard supports it.
      With gaming you want to have the best possible GPU you can afford, this isn't as 'much' an issue at 1080p but if you ever upgrade to 1440p you will notice the difference between the 580 and a 2080/5700.
      Most people play low as possible details to push the most performance they can anyways :P

    •  

      Get a 5700, and like you said, the non-XT model. It's a pity about the ram speed and dimm size, I'd go find a faster 2x8GB kit if its impacting performance, these days 16GB is the right amount. 2700X will be great for ages, RX 580 is still a solid card, could probably flip that for $200 as well.

      Simpler cheaper option which will net the same result.

      •  

        Thanks guys.

        I actually don't have a problem with the 2700X at present.

        Regarding the RAM, based on everything I've read the maximum the Dell mobo supports is 2666 Mhz. I would definitely upgrade to 16 GB if I was to stick with this PC.

        I'm tempted to just grab the 5700 in this deal because that apparently should do what I need gaming-wise.

        Would you happen to know if that would be OK in the Dell case without having to upgrade cooling and PSU?

  • +3 votes

    Can only say positive things regarding my experience with both Callum and Luke from TechFast , they have been more than helpful in my build, the build came out great and although took sometime to assemble and send but they do fit things nicely, would happily buy the build all over again. I got the 3600 with the 2080, I upgraded RAM speed and storage. Took around 3 weeks to arrive but communication was there throughout the process and they are more than happy to help you out and are transparent with the progress of things/queue.
    Keep it up Techfast, have sent many ppl your way.
    Side note, if you happen to sell individually priced GPUs at a good OzB special price let us know.
