Gaming PCs: R5-3600 | GTX 1660 Ti $799 / i5-9400F | RX 570 4GB $599 + $29 Delivery @ TechFast

R53600-1660Tii59400F-RX570

Hi all,

Think these will go alright as mid tier and entry level CPU/GPU combos. They are offered at this very low price point as a base spec with room to upgrade most components.

Spec: Ryzen 5 3600 | GTX 1660 Ti 6GB (MSI Ventus guaranteed for first 35 orders) | 8GB 2400MHz | 240GB 2.5" SSD | Biostar A320M MB | 550W PSU | Leaper Small Case
Price: $799 after R53600-1660Ti
Link: https://techfast.com.au/products/amd-ryzen-5-3600-gtx-1660-t...

and

Spec: Intel Core i5 9400F | RX 570 4GB | 8GB 2400MHz | 120GB 2.5" SSD | Biostar H310M MB | 550W PSU | Leaper Small Case
Price: $599 after i59400F-RX570
Link: https://techfast.com.au/products/core-i5-9400f-rx-570-4gb-ga...

Community-recommended upgrades for these from previous deals are the B350/B360 motherboard ($39) and 240GB NVMe SSD drive ($59 from 120GB/$39 from 240GB, requires B350/B360 motherboard for m.2 functionality), and/or 16GB RAM, either at 2400MHz ($99) or 3200MHz ($119). Both RAM upgrades are a little dearer at the moment due to supply shortage and price fluctuations.

I've contacted numerous customers regarding existing orders, and those that are due should be shipping by week's end, applying to low-end and high-end systems (570/580/1660/5700/2080 systems) but feel free to reach out for specifics if you need to.

  • 16GB RAM, either at 2400MHz ($99) or 3200MHz ($179). Both RAM upgrades are a little dearer at the moment due to supply shortage and price fluctuations.

    People are better off just buying RAM from something like this and just selling the 8GB that's supplied with this (or keep it as spare). Sorry Luke, your prices are really good overall but I don't see any justification for the price you ask just for an extra 8GB of RAM.

    • I don't think anybody orders the upgrades unless they are too lazy to take out the stuff or don't know how to remove them from the motherboard

    • This exact model is actually incompatible with Biostar mobos and Ryzen 3000 series. Believe me, we've tried it and had to replace in the field. It works for a while then causes no post.

      • That's strange, i got this exact model to pair with my r5 2600 on the Biostar b350 I got from you and it's been working absolutely fine for the last couple of months.

        • There must be a difference somewhere because we had multiple faulty kits. Unless there's one that looks the same but is different somehow. Please let me know if you have issues.

      • So you’re claiming that the Corsair Vengeance LPX DDR4 3200 doesn’t work with the Biostar motherboard that you supply, yet your insanely expensive DDR4 (that you don’t give any details on it at all) is fully compatible?

        Is that how you justify the cost of $179 for effectively 8GB of extra RAM? Would love to see proof of this claim.

      • Wow in that case the Biostar mobos are trash! Another reason not to buy :(

      • A320 mobos are not compatible above 3000mhz ram

      Looked into it. Pricing error. It should have been $119 all along. The 3200MHz we are currently using is Team T-Force Dark or Kingston HyperX.

  • How about a very cheap PC for like $150 or so?
    Just the desktop of course, no keyboard/monitor, etc….

    • look at dell optiflex or some of the HP pcs. These pc's are mostly made and designed for gamers

        • Probably yes but, the thing is using a 2011 processor with an internal graphic card for ~200 bucks. You might as well save another 100 or 2 and go on ebay and buy a 2nd hand desktop

          • @ilikeblue: I'm not super familiar with PCs have you got a recc for which 2nd hand desktop I oughta go for or is this post also a decent one? Also it's optiplex, isn't it possible if I just upgrade it manually or stuff like that? Oh crap did you mean they didn't even have a graphics card? Damn.

            What about this?

            • @drumrollplease: The optiplex comes with an internal graphic card and the mini pc you pasted also comes with an internal graphic card. You can play games with them, just don't expect the best quality from it. If you plan to buy the optiplex you mention and upgrade it, my advice would be don't do that since you'll basically have to upgrade the whole pc.

              If you look at the desktop section on ozb, you can see some better priced refurbished optiplex ranging around 200~300 range. If you're planning on getting that, make sure to get one with a ssd as they mostly have internal graphic card either way.

              If you want to buy new, you can just get the desktop from the current deal or a slight cheaper one from the previous tech fast deal

              • @ilikeblue: That OzBargain is expired :(

                ack saw your reply too late and Amazon reviews were good so I grabbed it lol rip hopefully it'll serve me well for years to come if not yeah I'll get a better optiplex in the future when it dies or some sort like that. My slippery fingers decided my fate lol rip but which optiplex would you recommend from that range? Maybe I can cancel my order since they haven't shipped it yet

                • @drumrollplease: It was still available in the morning lol

                  https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/484008

                  this one seems fine but again don't expect too much of a performance. At least compared to what you posted before, its 4th gen processor with a SSD.

                  The other deals posted here are all expired, so unless you're willing to wait you can just pickup whatever meets your need atm

                  • @ilikeblue: I commented on post when it was available before I saw your comment and luketechguy said it's been expired for a while but the system hadn't checked it off as expired

                    Ah I see but welp turns out they just shipped it so I'll deal with it haha and upgrade if need be or naw we'll see I guess yeah

                    Thanks for the insights tho!:)

      You're clearly new here 😉

    • I ordered a RTX2080/Ryzen 5 3600 system from them for my gf coupla months back, was around $1700. (I knew nothing about PC components back then) I waited 2 weeks and there still was no guarantee of getting it for another week due to a problem with the GPU supplier, i had to cancel the order and spent $3200 with all custom components and got a PC from JWcomputers, it's a lot more expensive but every component was a big upgrade apart from the CPU and GPU (e.g. X570 mobo, 32GB 3600MHz ram etc), i bought the Gigabyte Aorus 2070super for $1050 and got it vertically mounted, it looks absolutely awesome:

      I would recommend getting a PC from Techfast for entry level gaming, but if you want good quality, it's better to buy all components and build yourself or get someone build for you. This is the 2nd PC i been building for myself since:

      Once you started building PC yourself, it really opens up all the possibilities.

    Not sure if Techfast is worth it for me if I want to upgrade the RAM and PSU + I heard the case isn't really good? Could someone give me some advice?

    • I assume you want to change the RAM, PSU, AND motherboard. If you're willing to spend some time selling the extra parts you would get from buying the above items, you'll probably be paying like an extra 50 ~ 150ish?

      Also, I don't understand why you would buy another 550W psu to replace the same 550w psu you would be getting

      • Hey man, thanks for the reply. I was listing out the cost of the individual parts in the Techfast build. The 867 price tag includes their B350M Motherboard, so it's about $50 cheaper for an apple to apple comparison of the build, hence the 550W PSU.

        Just looking for any input on whether the $50 price difference is worth the inferior RAM/PSU/Case, or would I be better off spending more and building my own

        • If you're willing to spend time to sell the things you don't need from the tech fast build then it's definitely more worth it. If you ask luke nicely, they can send the pc unbuilt so you can build it on your own.

          Btw, the tech fast build uses a A320 motherboard and not the b350 you used for yours. If you buy the tech fast build you will have to buy the b350 mb.

          Also, if you're planning to build your own or upgrade the build, I would recommend getting a psu>ssd>ram.

        • Case isn't anything special but I'd bet it'd beat anything around $40.

          Mobo should be fine. Biostar's a smaller manufacturer and their motherboards vary, but I haven't heard any complaints about this one. B350's b350 unless stated otherwise.

          I use the "allied" PSU in my system, haven't had any problems. A 3600 and 1660 shouldn't draw enough to stress the thing. If it's the thermaltake unit you'd be even better off. I'd be willing to bet it's better then anything you'd find sub $70.

    • A 550W PSU is closer to $45 (on sale) and that would be bottom of the barrel for a known brand

    • I have the case. It is quite small for a micro atx case and I found the airflow lacking. I bought a Core V21 to replace.

  • hey luke,

    How does warranty go with the system if i wanted to add an extra hard drive or replace the PSU when the system arrives? Do I still get the 12 months on the entire system apart from the the replaced items?

    Thanks

    • Howdy, adding components or altering configuration must be done in the knowledge that if, in the event of a warranty claim, the changes are found to be the cause of the issue at hand, there will almost certainly be warranty implications.

  • I own the 3600/1660ti combo, the PC is absolutely fantastic.. I'm running this with the 2k astivista monitor from a previous ozb deal.

    It's been extremely smooth, quick startups, no hangs, smooth games quality & very tidy cable management

    Honestly cannot recommend enough at this price point

  • So I'm not good with PCs and all that….but will this computer be good enough to run a game like Cyberpunk?

    • "Run XXXX game" is a very hard question to answer. Computers aren't like consoles where everything is standardized. I would call 1080p @30fps "running" however the next person may demand 4K @ 60fps as the "running standard", next dude could be fine with 480p at 30fps…all three situations would technically be running but the required gear couldn't be anymore different.

      Doubly hard as the developers have not released min/recommended specs yet for their game but the E3 demo was run on the below config:
      CPU: Intel i7-8700K @ 3.70 GHz
      CPU SPEED: Info
      RAM: 16 GB
      OS: Windows 10 64-bit
      VIDEO CARD: GeForce GTX 1080 Ti
      PIXEL SHADER: 5.1
      VERTEX SHADER: 5.1
      DEDICATED VIDEO RAM: 4 GB

      This is WELL beyond OPs budget gaming PCs.

    • Won't know till the game launches, but I'd bet it'll be able to run it reasonably at 1080p with settings tuned.

      'Course the better way to check would probably be look at the witches 3's launch and compare it to the 60 series of that gen. But that's still just a guess.

  • Hi Luke,

    If I purchase the machine today and I don't require assembly when will it be shipped?

    • Hi mate. It will be picked and shipped the same day as other systems purchased today are picked to begin assembly and testing. This is to be fair to everyone. Current times for lower end gear is around 7 business days. Some more, some less, but that is the average.

  • Oh no. I just committed to the i5 9400F and GTX 1660. Did I play myself? Should I have waited for this deal?

  • Hi Luke, any upcoming sales on the 3700X / RTX2080 system combo?

  • Created an account to ask: How would these go with video editing with Filmore?

    Currently borrowing a slightly aged i7 960, 16gb RAM, 2GB GTX 660, and i spliced together clips from about 50 videos before Filmora started crashing every so often. For basic videos it’s fine though.

    I’d probably prefer the ryzen 5 3600 instead of the i5, but it all might be easier than what I’ve cobbled together on MSY. Cheers.

  • Just wondering does this come with the original boxes for the items as well? Or just the system?

    • We send the motherboard box as an accessories box with power cable, documentation etc. We don't ship component boxes as a general rule.
