All time low on these two entry level/esports gaming PCs with a 6 core/12 thread processor because of the new Ryzen 5 1600 AF from TechFast. Offered at the base spec/price with upgrade options with either an RX 570 4GB (brand may vary) or RX 580 8GB (Biostar) GPU.

There's about a 17-19% performance difference between the 2 cards. Enjoy :)

    Is this is the best value for money build they posted so far?

      That's a hard question to answer….

      PC parts fluctuate all the time.
      If you like it, get it. Not gonna get much better value.

    I'd definitely reccomend everyone to just fork out the extra 30 and get the model with the rx 580, the performance difference between the two cards is pretty significant and 30 bucks is a steal for the upgrade.

    • +2 votes

      Honestly, when you factor in the power usage of an rx570/580/590, they become extremely poor value.

      An rx 580 is around an extra $27/50/160 per year in energy cost compared to a 5500xt or 1650 super for light/moderate/heavy usage.

      •  

        Very good point.

      •  

        I know the card is bad but I don't believe it's that bad electricity cost wise. I'm a big greeny too but love you've also thought of it and posted about it. Kudos to you broooo

        • +1 vote

          Thanks, but I wasn't really thinking about the environment lol. The biggest concerns to me would be that it's such an expensive card to run for antiquated performance and using so much power will heat up your pc case and shorten the lifespan of other components, especially if you're using a case with poor airflow (like the Leaper ones).

        Not sure where you got those numbers from but the video link you posted shows $13/year for 4 hours gaming 365 days/year.

        For $13/year with that much gaming I'm gonna call the rx580 a winner on cost vs the 1650.

          Except for the fact that:
          1. You aren't in America
          2. USD is worth more than AUD.

          I converted the EU prices to AUD. You could base it on USD, but energy prices are extremely cheap in the US compared to Australia so it's not a realistic comparison.

        the problem with the 580 is that its basically an overclocked 480, taking it way out of the efficiency curve, you're using something like 30% extra power for 10% extra performance. with mining you can achieve 80% hash rate with just 60% power just by downclocking/downvolting the cores, and if you're not pegging the card at 100% usage you can save more power, particularly competitive games where the gpu requirements are extremely low, you can easily run them on 20-30% power/low settings.

        tldr you can save a lot of power depending on how you use it

    •  

      The 570 is still a great card (I run one), but I agree for $30 the 580 is the much better deal. Also it has an extra 4GB of VRAM which will help with longevity of the card as games require more VRAM (4GB is fine today but it's cutting it close).

      • +1 vote

        No game uses more than 4GB of VRAM at 1080p on ultra. Red Dead Redemption 2 gets close, but then again an rx 580 isn't going to be able to run Red Dead Redemption 2 on ultra settings. So basically the gpu will be a bottleneck long before you're using more than 4GB of VRAM, thus you're paying for an extra 4GB of VRAM that you're never going to be able to utilise.

    Trying to decide between this and the Lenovo E495 deal for $615 after cashback at the moment. I know that is should be more powerful, but since I don't game but do photo editing with Lightroom and Photoshop instead. How much more powerful is the 1600AF vs the 3500U?

    What is everyone else doing with the OS? just leave it inactivated? Or some cheap keys for around $20?

    • +4 votes

      Versus the 3500U you could put the 1600 AF to the 1600 (at worst) or 2600, but either way it's far more powerful.

      •  

        Thanks for sending the comparison. Does it have extra HDD slot for a 2.5" SSD? Also it has HDMI out so I can use a TV as display right?

        •  

          Yep, you can add a 2.5 and/or 3.5d' drive, and m.2 SSD if you choose the B450 motherboard. The GPU will have an HDMI output, yep.

    • +2 votes

      You're talking about a 4 core 8 threaded cpu (3500u) vs a 6 core 12 threaded cpu (1600af). Unless portability is a prime consideration, I would go with this techfast build with the rx580 anyday of the week.

      Also good to remember you can upgrade components in a desktop much more readily than a laptop where you are usually limited to RAM/Drive upgrades only.

    • +2 votes

      Get a laptop if you need mobility. Elsewise they lose out to desktops in every other metric (value, performance, upgradability, ergonomics, etc…)

    I don't need a PC since I've quit gaming, but at the rate Tech Fast keep churning out these deals, I may cave and buy one for no good reason.

    This is ozbargain so let's go cheap AF. I've already got a case, PSU, RAM & SSD.
    How much for just the motherboard, CPU & GPU as a bundle?

    • +2 votes

      That'd probably defeat their purposes… They'd get this stuff as a whole cheap.

      Often the CPU and GPU in the higher end bundles are more or less equal to the total cost….

      Wait, is this legit? I figured they were all just non-genuine keys. If they are genuine, this is amazing

        The key does work and is genuine, but where the seller got the keys from is questionable, eg. stolen credit card.

          I bought one of the cheap office home & business from eBay but when I got it they sent me a box that had spelling errors on it, the code was for Office Standard 2016 which although activated no problems it's a Volume License key so isn't genuine for resale.

          I'm sure if you put those cheap eBay keys info PIDKey Checker it would come back saying they are VL keys, nobody is getting retail keys under $100. They will activate windows no problems but buying them won't give you a genuine windows license, may as well pirate it at that point rather than support these dodgy resellers.

          •  

            @Agret: This is where I'm at as well. I wish I could justify buying these cheap keys… but it crosses a line.

              @pronoun: You can install genuine Windows 10, downloaded directly and legitimately from Microsoft, without a licence. You get a watermark at the bottom right of the screen and that is the only functional difference between a legit licence and having no licence at all.

              Unlicenced Windows 10 receives all updates.

              Microsoft does not care about home users getting Windows for free. They sell OEM licences for just a couple of dollars to the PC manufacturers and they give it out for free for computers of a certain screen size.

              The lesson of Windows XP in China was that people will find a way to get the O/S for free and so Microsoft can either support that, or at least actively look the other way, or they can end up with unsupported, malware-ridden botnets with their branding all over it.

      I've never seen a seller with such a low rating (59.5%). I'd rather spend more and actually get what I paid for.

  •  

    It's funny. I don't need a 580. I'm still running a 1080p screen. The money is better spent on an ergo human chair.

    But this price is calling me.

    Please stop tempting me with amazingly cheap gaming PCs. PLEASE. FOR THE LOVE OF EVERYTHING, PLEASE STOP!!?!

    Just wondering about the 1070 that everyone is requesting, is it better than 580?
    580/1070 are these single fan cards?

    What is the quality of these systems. Has anyone had issues with them? How about the warranty service?

    Luke, when will the B350M be available? I want to use an M2 drive (which requires B350M or above). But at $79 for the B450M it's 15% on top of this deal. The B350M is only $39, much more manageable!

  •  

    Hi rep. Do you have the specs of the both the cases? I have limited space so just want to make sure it fits. Thanks

    Edit - found the specs in the images.

  •  

    Bloody hell, the $529 package is ridiculous value. RX 580 still a gun GPU at 1080p (the most common gaming resolution). Now I'm tempted myself…

    If you are holding off for something cheaper in the near future, don't.

    Prices will be going up with the production of parts in China being shut down for an extended period of time.

  •  

    My last gaming was Pentium 4 days. How does this compare to buying an Xbox?

    Jesus stop tempting me. The only reason I am holding off now is that I need to know if I can have ABN on this and got the tax return. When will the offer end?

    Leaper open air RGB case? Can I have more information on this? How many fans fitted and RGB?

      7 x rgb fans, it is all listed on their sale page
      dying to here what ppl think of it too, I want one

      •  

        That's great info, where about on the page did you find it? I couldn't find details about the fans or RGB lights either.

        •  

          if you keep scrolling the thumbnails of the cases, you will get to thumbnails of the specs for most of the cases

    Is this RX580 deal better?

    https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/518274

    Or is the 1600AF CPU $59 better than the 3200G CPU?

    • -3 votes

      Neither to be honest.

    •  

      Single-core performance should be similar but the 1600af has two extra physical cores and many more virtual threads, which should help with gaming. As games nowadays will follow the higher thread count of the next-gen consoles.I'd say that $59 difference is worth it.

    Hi All, I am thinking to buy one 580 for my son's gaming, he plays league of legends, will this be sufficient? I am happy to upgrade to 16GB DDR4. Thanks

    • +1 vote

      The extra ram isn't necessary. Buy as is. The 580 is a better deal of the 2 options.. but again isn't necessary for league of legends

    •  

      this is way overkill for league, the ryzen 3200g deals ~$350 they have can easily handle it. with league you'd want a 144hz monitor though

  •  

    @Luketechfast for the 580 config is it a VA5805RV82 (Dual Cooling) or a VA5805RV82? Dual Cooling has 2 fans the non-Dual Cooling is a blower style, other models on Biostar's website seem to be 4GB or not a real RX580 (see 2048SP)
