    Doesn't seem great value compared to some reasonably similar current or previous Techfast deals.

      True, but the Techfast deals usually have a base price using ancient A320 motherboards, 8GB of slow 2400MHz RAM and relatively slow SATA SSDs. IF you upgrade a few of those parts to more modern hardware, the price jumps up quite a bit.

      This deal uses at least a B350 motherboard (maybe newer, I'm not an expert), a faster NVMe SSD (plus a bonus mechanical drive) and 16GB of more modern 2666MHz RAM. And it includes a genuine Windows license.

        The first one I linked above is $1,007 delivered and has a B350 MB and 16gb of 2400MHz RAM included in that price.

        Processors would cost roughly the same amount.

        Most importantly, the Techfast one has a non-reference 5700 which costs ~$550 on special while the HP has a 580 8gb which costs maybe $250 (details unknown).

        Not denying the HP has a few better features in places, but as gaming PCs the Techfast one will be way ahead of the HP for the same money.

        wot where does it say this uses a B350 mb?

        iirc hp uses custom motherboards and this is unlikely to be true

        in the specifications the mb brand is "Sunflower"
