    This is a really good deal, even by TechFast standards

    If there is anyone still out there looking to buy at this price range, that hasn't bought a tech fast build already, this is a great deal.

    Currently Order to Delivery process is taking about 3 - 4 week, should order ASAP if you want this before Christmas.

    That is how long my delivery is projected to take, but I am hearing it may be even worse from others. Which is a bit disheartening considering they advertised a 5-7 working day build time.

      Ordered in Oct, still waiting to be shipped. Not having alot of hope reading the above.

    •  

      New delay posted today is quoting 7 days

      •  

        Which is just a lie.

        •  

          Yep, it's been like that for a year, quote 7 days and never meet it.

          Many people are always posting about failed parts and having to ask for service on an open forum as they can't get a reply via email.

          I shudder to think what warranty claims will be like in 12months. All these grey import biostar parts.

        I ordered this and would expect it before Xmas … if not, they’ll soon realise not living up to delivery times will be their downfall. Yes people like cheap, built PCs. But if you can’t deliver… business will deplete

      But why would you expect 1660 or similar priced cards to deliver decent performance at 4k?
      Its targeted market is 1080p… (not even 1440p, let alone 4k)

      PS - I didn't neg you

    That is one hot deal.

    If I hadn't already ordered a system last week, and was still on the fence, this would tip me over for sure.

    I like Techfast, but hearing that systems ordered and paid for LAST MONTH still havent been shipped as of 13 November, I think they would be better named "TechSlow"

    Their EBAY ratings aren't great, and a lot of the negatives are about long delays in shipping - sometimes a month or more!

      I can only speak from my own experience… I ordered 22 July and it was delivered on the 30th. Obviously this time of year might be a different beast, but that was my experience.

      That's exactly what's stopping me from pulling the trigger. Would rather buy local. Put a PC together on Parts Picker and wait till Black Friday.

      They had pointed out pretty explicitly that the r5 3500x systems were a "preorder" of sorts, and would be run when they got stock (which I believe luke confirmed they had sometime last week, round the 5th iirc).

      Also the lack of communication through their ebay store. I ordered one of their systems on ebay on Sat. After 3 days, not even an acknowledgement that they had received my order (of course paypal payment went through right away).

      So I sent them a message through ebay over a day ago just to see where it is at and no response.

      This deal is better than the one I ordered on ebay. I guess I will wait until the estimated delivery date and see if anything happen.

      I ordered 2/11 and they emailed me last week that it will be shipped this week.
      Today they emailed me that it will be shipped next week.

      I will cancel my order if that doesnt happen

      I hear you. I ordered when the last sea came out. Still waiting for the confirmation of shipping sent out.
      I’m surprised they take on these large orders if/when they don’t a) have confirmed stock or guarantee of stock delivery to their end and b) enough labour for assembly/testing and shipping.

      I asked for a refund for the difference paid between this new deal and what I paid as they’re exactly the same to my config (sure this deal is $53 dearer thanks to the case and memory of whatever) which is $6 plus another $59 for case/memory. I’m probably naive in thinking hey will honor this but seeing as they haven’t even shipped out my order..

    can we get a better board with m.2 support please :)

  •  

    Thoughts on the included case & motherboard?

  •  

    Would this sort of spec be okay for a 9 year old who plays Fortnite, Roblox (evil, dodgy, slow code so needs decent graphics card to work well) uses a USB 3 video capture card and streams to Twitch, YouTube (not a lot, but getting into it more)? I was thinking of upgrading the mobo for more USB 3.x ports and perhaps the power supply as would pop another SSD & HDD (i.e. a mechanical drive and not SSD) into it from old PC. He has two monitors which are 1920x1200 but might give him a 3rd which is 1920x1080.

    Actually looking to buy with December pay bonus - please God - (i.e. for Christmas), but doing homework, now.

    Thanks!

      100 percent. Little nephew has a Ryzen 5 2600,RX 570 8GB,120GB SSD and 8GB DDR4. Does twitch while playing Fortnite and hasn't had a hiccup.

      This will absolutely piss that in. That's a hell of a setup for a 9yo O_o

      •  

        Thanks. Also hoping it might last a while :)

        •  

          If it wasn't for the fact that the mobo just blew up, my midrange PC I bought in 2012 was still running Overwatch on high so this will get you a few years.

      It depends what monitor he is using and what resolution he wants to game at.

      At 1080p this is fine.

      At 4k this sucks ass due to the GPU…

      9 year olds are allowed to stream on those platforms?

      • +3 votes

        No they aren’t.

        The Twitch Services are not available to persons under the age of 13. If you are between the ages of 13 and 18 (or between 13 and the age of legal majority in your jurisdiction of residence), you may only use the Twitch Services under the supervision of a parent or legal guardian who agrees to be bound by these Terms of Service.

      Yes the game of guessing when your item will arrive. Honestly though doesn't seem like it includes any games as being askhole seems pretty good with his previous descriptions of deals

    Obviously not complaining at this price-point - but I am waiting for the day when Techfast will run-out of their collection of A320 boards LOL.

    Then again, what I hear the A520 or similar entry level boards are not far away.

    Chiming in - Whats a decent rig for 1440 gaming?

    • +2 votes

      I am not an expert, but what I gather AMD 5700xt or NVidia 2600 Super will do fine for 1440P gaming

      5700 or 2600 or even 1660 ti/super might do the job but maybe with lower settings

      From the CPU point of view, 3500x or 3600 should be fine

      So This should do the job but if you have extra $ then definitely consider this

    hi what windows are you guys using?

  •  

    Is it possible to get this unassembled, and if so would that mean it ships faster?

  •  

    Out of curiosity, where do you guys get your Windows system from?

  •  

    Does this build have any RGB?

  •  

    These guys should look at rebranding to TechCheap.
