  • Bit disappointing that 1. the ram is single channel and 2. only 8gb by default, 8 is not enough. Meaning at a minimum you have to spend at least an extra $90 for 1 x 8gb stick and then probably upgrade the psu too for $90

  • Are there builds that are less gaming heavy and more CPU focused? I'm looking for a build that is geared to Adobe tools and casual gaming ie 3700X and 2060 instead of 2080 etc.

    • there have been prodcutivity focused builds from them… seen a few advertised in the past.

    • Probably just best to build your own. If your knowledgeable enough to know what you want, you're 1 youtube tutorial away from learning how to build it yourself.

      • Oh I've built systems before but at times the techfast pre-builts come out on top price wise after selling off the components I don't need.

  • CPU doesn't get a good write up. Better of just spending a little more and getting a 3600 with SMT. Although as per the article, it seems that the 3500x is sold cheaply as an OEM option, hence why Techfast is using them. https://www.techspot.com/review/1966-amd-ryzen-5-3500x/

    • I bought one of the old packages and paid the upgrade to 3600. Its fine for most games, will bottleneck some but at 1k for everything there are going to need to be costs cut.

    • Yeah it's not a great pairing with my 5700, I find it maxing out in AC Odyssey and Battlefield 1 a little more than I'd like. I'm probably going to upgrade to a 3700XT next year.

    • You're not going to get much love anywhere with that suggestion

      • Obviously PC lovers dont like consoles but just comparing what ur actually getting for your Money. Hardcore PC users will pay more and get something better and prob would touch this

        • I have no allegiance to the stupid PC vs console debate - I have both and they absolutely have their own place in the market. I just disagree with everything you say.

          I think $1k for a fully assembled 3500x/2600 machine is not bad value.
          If someone is in the market for a PC I don't think a console is like for like
          To say the PS5 is going to be $500 is just funny.

  • Assuming this is the nvidia rtx 2060 super?
    Think I might grab this.
    Cheers

  • When will B550 boards be available?

  • Sorry for a noob question… What's a good minimum gaming PC for playing VR games (namely half life)…

    • This should be pretty good for a budget vr option.

    • you could probably go cheaper than even this for half life alyx, it is very well optimised. I would look for at least 6gb of vram and it tends to run a tad better on nvidia cards. Any of the GTX1660 series will run it great, and an RX580 will work fine as well. for CPU all it needs is a decent quad core anything from the last 8 years will be fine. make sure you have 16gb of RAM for half life alyx if you get this you will need to add another 8gb stick.

  • Do you test systems before sending them out?

    My friend purchased a system from you that arrived yesterday and will not power on

    • That would be a good question actually.. Thinking of buying a pre-built system for my mate

    • They (say that they) do test them. It's possible something gets loose in transportation though, so may want to just have them check over all the cables to make sure.

      Hi, yes, every system is fully stress tested before shipping. As others have said if it doesn't boot upon receipt it would be an issue in transit. Our support team can assist via [email protected] so please ask your friend to email if they haven't already. Cheers.

      • This stress testing process was not very good for my 5700 build. They didn't check junction temps, so while the legacy sensors were measuring 67c which is normal my junction temp was well in excess of 100c and the fans spun up like crazy. Your team is dealing with my card now but I'm just giving feedback on the testing methods.

    • Update: a cable had come loose during transit. PC now working

  • Great deal!!!

  • Nice deal Luke, Just want to ask what brand PSU is used for the Gold 750w upgrade? and if its possible to get the boxes sent out with the PC? Thanks

    • Gigabyte G750H has been the staple for some time - the disclaimer that brands/model can vary still applies though.

      • Thanks for the reply Luke! And is there any chance of getting component boxes with the PC?

        • Not really sorry. Some components come OEM/non retail packaging, but more so operationally we're not setup to store packaging for specific builds that are in various stages of pick/build/test/packing.

        • I asked PCCG to place all the packaging/documentation within the delivery box and they did, pretty good.

          • @aussiekid: pccg are the goat. i ordered parts for a PC 2 weeks after my brother ordered a pre-built from TF and got it across Australia, in 3 working days. PLE have been nothing but rude to me during the quarantine time, I'd sooner pay for shipping over East then deal with them now.

  • Any bargains on small form pc builds??

    • Can we build up a better one with this price? I am genuinely asking.

      • A quick look at pcpartpicker and similar websites shows that the price really is pretty sweet. You'd be hard pressed to build a similar config for this much (of course, you'd have to make reasonable adjustments - for eg., this config has 3500x, which is mostly available through OEM channels; and I would not go with the case on offer if I was building it separately)

        Worth getting if this is the config you're after. Price is not an issue.

        • The kicker with these prices is the no name components. It's the ultimate noob trap, slap a noname 750W PSU , people things it's good because muh "750". Why does upgrading mobo cost $150 to MSI mortar b450?, because they use nasty lowest tier parts.

          Do yourself a favour and build yourself a PC with known brands for a tad more. Where you check the review of every component yourself, internet is a wonderful tool.

          If your already trying to save money(which most people are if they're going techfast) I'm sure you have the time to do some research on components and basic PC building.

          • @RoeJogan: Completely agree. That's where the money's being saved.
            I would much rather go for at least an 80+ Bronze 650w, instead of the 750w advertised. And I would double check the SSD, RAM and Case specs. Then again, I'm pretty sure I'll end up spending more than $999 :). You get what you pay for, I s'pose.

            @RoeJogan:

            because they use nasty lowest tier parts

            You've fully bought yourself into the PCMR hype, don't worry, I have too. The worrying thing is when you think you're the majority. That's just not true. The number of people who care about what parts are in their PC is a minority and has been for a very long time. I would never use the cheapest parts because to me, my computer is more than just "something that works", but for the overwhelming majority of people, that's exactly what it is.

            The market of this sort of system is not you or me. That's fine.

            Do yourself a favour and build yourself a PC with known brands for a tad more. Where you check the review of every component yourself, internet is a wonderful tool.

            Oh please, stop proselytising. Do you build your car with parts too? Did you build your own bathroom and your own kitchen? Did you solder your own amplifier? Do you build your own speakers?

            It's great that it's an interest for you, it's mine too. But pretending like the majority of people care is silly. Most people just want to turn on their PC and play games or check their FB.

            • @p1 ama: I agree with everything you've said.

              Also have to consider troubleshooting and warranty. If a problem occurs in a custom build, you need to troubleshoot and isolate the problem. That's before finally sending off the specific part for a solution. When buying a pre built (or custom pre built) it comes with a complete warranty of the entire build. A problem occurs, send the whole thing back, no troubleshooting etc.

              This plays into your explanation of people who build vs who want to plug and play.

              • @Frayin: Well said. And re warranty, is exactly the reason I now suggest that people buy these machines when they ask me to build them a PC. I have escaped many lifetimes acting as free tech support.

          • @RoeJogan: without evidence/facts your theories are just conspiratory and fear mongering

            for example, people get scared because techfast use 'unknown' motherboard brands from biostar, but they don't realise these guys have been around since 1986 and cater mainly to server market, wait server market doesn't that mean they know a thing or two about quality and reliability? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Biostar

            it's all good and well to follow the consensus and build your own so you get 'quality' parts, but in reality you're wasting hundreds of dollars trusting groupthink

          • @RoeJogan: Gigabyte G750H PSU as per Luke's comment above.

      • Spec for spec, no you cannot build anything better for the same price. However, once you start configuring the base spec to higher quality/better parts, then the price go up pretty fast that you better off build yourself.

        There's also the option of buying this, then upgrade parts yourself and sell what you don't use. Depends on your Gumtree skill you may save a fair bit of money. It's too much hassle for me though.
