R5-3500X Gaming PCs - 2080 Super $1379 / 2070 Super $1044 + $29 Shipping @ Techfast

680
3500X-2080S-FEB3500X-2070S-FEB

All time low prices on these two systems from Tech Fast. They are starting at a base spec - the B350 motherboard normally offered is in short supply, and they dropped the price of the B450 upgrade to $79 (previously $119 I think), so a better motherboard is now more affordable.

Enjoy :)

    Which make of 2070 Super is it?

  • +4 votes

    they are good prices. but i cant help feeling its a waste. a 3500x or 3600 on a 2070 or 2080. if i had a a 3500x or 3600 id pair it up with a 1660 super. for 2070 or 2080 i would go with a 3700x minimum. just feel you wouldnt see the full potential of the 2070 and 2080 on a 3500x or 3600. again just opinion i could be wrong..wouldnt be the first…or last.

      Yeah those CPUs you mentioned will get you a few higher fps, but the 3500x is still a hex core at 4.1ghz. Very few games use quad core, let alone 6. Hyper threading would be a nice addition, but for the most part the CPU is quite capable.

      As you mentioned the 1660, there is a deal that was posted in the last few days with what you described, this CPU and a 1660, for about $650 I believe.

      There's really no point in choosing a 3700X over video card performance for gaming.

      Other than you want spare cores for encoding or something.

    •  

      this could be due to prices structure for them they might need to move more of the 3500x

    •  

      They are using those cpus because they are using god awful cheap mobos, 3600+ wont be supported by A320 power limiting boards. They can run…..but you'll be seeing them get sent back cause the pc is so slow and shit

    •  

      difference between a 3600 and 3700x for gaming is negligible

  •  

    so for just gaming, no streaming or editing or rendering or whatever..just personal gaming..would you suggest the 3500x or 3600?

  •  

    thanks for the info guys, and i gotta say luke im impressed you said 3500x over the 3600 which cost $150 less. most vendors would have pushed the higher cost..so really appreciate your honesty. ive priced both packages and the 2070 comes to $345 cheaper over the 2080. for my gaming needs the 2070 is above and beyond for my gaming needs. so im going to go with the 3500x and 2070 and use the extra $345 to grab some games. thanks for the help and info folks, much appreciated.

      Dont forget 2 sticks of Ram (now or later) and the faster RAM speed…

        yup, grabing 16gb 3200mhz, going with msi mortar MB, 2tb hard drive, and 1tb nvme ssd, 750 watt 80+, sticking with stock cpu fan..i wont be over clocking the cpu will keep it stock so im hoping that will be fine.

          No point in buying this with all those extra upgrades. Just build one yourself

          • +1 vote

            @BrokeMalone: i understand what your saying, but i also know enough to know i should let someone with more experience build it and im willing to pay extra for that peace of mind that it will get built better then i can attempt to do it. ive also priced it out from places like newegg australia and msy and at times i actually came out costing more

      Our margin is the same with both CPUs, so I have nothing to gain by foisting a more expensive part on a customer, especially if someone else they speak to says, "They got one on you there, it's unnecessary!" In fact we sourced the 3500X precisely because it offers the same gaming performance at $150 less! Far more interested in ensuring our customers get the right spec for their needs, and recommending us as a vendor.

  •  

    Will you guys ever sell the 3500X by itself?

  •  

    In terms of value, what option would be better for photo and possibly video processing? Considered the budget pc option posted a few days ago, but not sure if it had enough grunt.

    • +1 vote

      Something with the 3700X. I will try to post up a deal tomorrow. The staple B350 motherboard is in short supply as BA said above, so we may offer it with a B450. It should come in a bit over the $1000 mark.

    Which 2080 is better

    •  

      Fractions different performance wise. The Galax has superior cooling in my view - bigger heatsink and temps in testing. The MSI option is there for people who prefer the brand.

    • +1 vote

      I'll vote the Galax in, especially as it's a bit cheaper, and a slightly better constructed card imo
      The MSI is there just for ppl who think that is a better card for whatever reason

    Will you be Doing any Deals with the 3700x or 3800x and 2070/2080 supers anytime soon?

  • +2 votes

    You should definitely take the board upgrade. Ive had terrible issues with the biostar b45m2

  •  

    The MSI vertus for the 2070 super is also $39. Hope it's a mistake on ozb and not on TF. If so could have saved $60. -_-

  •  

    Biostar A320 MB

    lol

  •  

    looking forward to see deals like 3700x + 2070 super.

    Hi Luke

    I've been placed order for a week, any updates on the machine?

    •  

      Happy to look into it - please PM me your details. Average time from order to ship is 10 business days.

  •  

    is it possible to make a split payment using zippay and paying the rest off with savings??

  •  

    what are people thoughts on these cases? Money isn’t the issue as I wa going to be building a computer for a workmate but I feel much More comfortable putting the responsibility onto techfast.
    He only wants it to play WoW but which I know this is an overkill but he wants to spend 2k on a monitor and computer, regardless of the overkill factor.

      The default case looks a bit crap, there is a review of the build / case on Youtube if you are interested. I went with the Deepcool as it has more inlet ventilation on the front and I wasn't going to run the RGB lighting.

    What m.2 NVME SSD do you use?

    •  

      I'm looking at adding a ~$200 nvme, keep the default SSD for OS and 1TB nvme for games.
      Also interested in what nvme they would use, the cheapies seem to bee sub-par to an Evo SSD for same $.

    •  

      Lexar in mine, but could be crucial , team, etc, something in the 2gb r/w non-cache budget class

  •  

    I just want to ask the brand name of 1TB NVME ssd? Is it Crucial or Samsung?
