  • Damn, should have told my brother to hold off on the 1600 deal. Nice price

  • Running the last offering of this if anyone has any questions, mine is in the Flair case with 16GB ram.

    I'm sure OP or Luke will correct me if this is no longer the case, but I was able to pick the PC up myself from their SA shop unassembled to reduce waiting time. Building is easy for anyone comfortable with basic electronics. YMMV of course

    Edit: got the b45m2 motherboard, it shipped with latest BIOS so no issues with the CPU. Can't remember what the cost difference was but I think very worthwhile considering all the good m2 SSD offerings out

      Unassembled systems generally save the build and testing time, so 1-2 business days. We generally pick all orders placed on the same day, at the same time, to be fair to each order. If you live local, and stock is there and no orders ahead of yours are affected by it going early, we can generally work something out. Cheers!

  • whats the waiting time on these units?

    • We're working on 10-14 business days from order placed to dispatch, on the majority of systems.

      • hi Luke I sent an email 2 days about about a custom build can you see if they can follow up? thanks

  • hi how does the Ryzen compare to i7 9700?

  • I wish I jumped the gun during Blackfriday :(

  • Would change the PSU ASAP before your PC blows up. :)

      Unfortunately the Aussie dollar was 10% higher back then, which is about a 15-20% increase in purchasing prices, plus stock availability has plunged and therefore suppliers jacked prices. The GPU is $80 more expensive for us to buy, alone. Those pricing days have gone for a good while.

      • just bought one - Amazing how quick things change. It's almost a $200 difference to the link considering that has more ram (16gb), larger SSD (240gb) and wifi.

  • its 999 when i click through. how do i get ut for 788?

  • BA, do you know if there will be any upcoming deals on TF's high-end gaming PCs?

  • Hi @Luke
    Was looking at your Intel deal from end of Feb/start of March - https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/520581
    Seems those systems are still up in those configs, minus the $300 deduction.
    Will you be doing another intel play?

    I am in the market for a third gaming PC at home - my kids have "stolen/nationalised" the two I have now (11, 9 and the third boy is fighting).

    Its been a while since I built PCs and my last buy was a Dell XPS gaming deal. From my reading for pure gaming, Intel still seems the better value buy if I don't do any other things (have laptops for that) Something with the I7 9700F and 1660 or 2070Super?

    • If you are purely looking for a gaming PC then spending extra money on a higher end CPU like an i7 9700F is throwing money away compared with choosing a decent value CPU and getting a better graphics card. Games are almost always GPU limited and the difference between an r5 3500x and an i7 9700F is tiny in most gaming scernarios. On the other hand the difference between a gtx1660 and a rtx2070s is enormous.

      I am still running a midrange CPU from 2012 (i5 3550) and I don't regret choosing a cheaper cpu even 8 years later as I am still mostly GPU limited 6 generations later.

    • here's what I noticed
      everything up to an amd 3900x will put a slight bottleneck on a 2080 super, where as a rather sad (if benchmark comparing) i7 9700 will actually increase the performance of said card
      and although the amd 3600 up on paper all look to thrash an i7 9700 on benchmarks, actual gaming performance seems to be better all the way up to the 3900x, why, I will leave to the boffins, but I suspect there are a lot of factors in the end result

      • Yes. That is what I found too. Even a 2070 super can in situations ve limited (but not a 1660). So it isn't true that the CPU doesn't bottleneck…

        The AMD extra cores kill in video production, but until games get smarter on using more cores, Intel has a $/frame advantage for a given 2070s or 2080 card.

        1660/2060, the amd is so worth it.

        Also the i7 9400fis also cheaper than. The 9400 or 9400k with no in built video.

      i7s are not a sure thing at the moment so no Intel deals in the short term. We're awaiting a delivery at the end of this month but I won't offer them again until supply sures up. We don't generally sell any systems unless there's a deal on here for it.

  • @Luke, can the budget pc run World of Warcraft at max settings? sorry i'm really outdated with PC's

  • Any discount to get this with no SSD?

    • No sorry, complete systems only.

      • I know you have and still do get hounded about it to the contrary, but for my money you could go back to the single stick of 8gb ram and 120gb ssd's on all systems if savings could be passed on with upgrade options still available ofc
        when I get one of your systems to play with both get tossed out straight away anyway :)
        I hope the open air case will be making a comeback, as well as offering other non-leaper case options too, one of the better decisions techfast have made imo

  • @Luke sorry for the noob question. What ports does this come with? I guess that depends on the case and the motherboard?

  • Is this WiFi Adapter, a USB or a WiFi Card?

  • I have 2 friends looking at getting entry level PC's and am planning on recommending this. They would be looking at playing mainly LoL and some FPS on min, would this have any drama with that?

    Also, does the base model fit 2 Hard Drives? They'd want the SSD but also have HDD's in their current desktops that would have to be added.


  • How does Ryzen 3500X compare to Ryzen 2700. PC will primarily be used for WoW.


  • Hey,
    I'm a complete PC noob, do you think this pc will run games like COD and be able to stream on it fine. Without any upgrades?
    And do you think getting 16gb ram is needed?

  • price is AUD $828.00 + delivery after the code, please update

    • I think the reason for the price variance is that the AUD has been deteriorating; however, back in March I thought it was worse :|

  • @luketechfast any upcoming productivity/gaming deals?

    Like this one:
    "Ryzen Productivity/Gaming PCs [B450/16/240]: $799 with R5-3600 / $999 with R7-3700X + Shipping @ TechFast"

  • 939 now.

  • Has this now gone up?
    Just went to buy one and it's $200 more expensive
