    Looks good but still a bit pricey given your amazing deals at the beginning of the year.

    Hopefully the strengthing AUD will bring down the supplier costs and pass them down to you.

      Pricing fairly and squarely back in all distributors' and suppliers' courts now, that's for sure.

      its back to 70c pretty much now which is what it was a year ago, hopefully pricing can resume…

      Deals at the beginning of the year needed a lot of upgrades though (mobo,ram,psu,case), this just needs the $99 psu upgrade.

      It's nice to see Techfast moving away from selling crippled systems that need a lot of upgrades to people largely clueless about PCs whilst remaining far cheaper than their prebuilt competition.

    Thanks for persevering with the deals Luke. I know a lot of shade has been thrown towards you guys lately, but i honestly think it's being handled well.

    I will definitely be buying a system from you guys, it's just a matter of how long can i wait out for the perfect bargain!

    Wow, this is it. For comparison I did up a PCPP list with cheapest parts that meet the spec I could find. And I doubt you could actually source all these parts for the same price in Australia due to lack of stock everywhere. $150 saving plus having it built for you + warranty is a pretty nice looking deal.

    do you guys do gaming m-itx deals? fully built or otherwise.

  • +11 votes

    $1799 Delivered and it would sell in 100s, think about it rep :D

    An RTX 2070 Super was less than $600 couple of months back ! Distributors still had 1000s in stock, but nobody in the world will actually do the right thing
    Same with B450M mortar max was $119-$120 wholesale price in Jan/Feb. We need a Costco wholesale for PC parts :P, selling at set prices and agreements directly with OEMs and Manufacturers.

    If possible I think a 3600 + 2080 would be a better choice.

    •  

      Actually I think this 3700x + 2070S deal a better combination. People tends to keep CPU platform around for much longer than GPU. A 3700x could last for a good 5y+, whereas 3600 will likely can't keep up with modern games after 2-3y.

      2070S vs 2080S, 2070S has much better p/p. Both can play 1440p 100fps+ well and none can push 4k 60fps reliably, so the 2080S is kinda an odd choice for most.

    •  

      There have been a few 2080s deals over the last few months. 2070s is a more popular option, esp with new cards due later in the year.

  •  

    Luke, do you have any rigs with Radeon vii?

    •  

      Not something we've ever had unfortunately!

      •  

        And for good reason, the VII is shit. Even as an AMD fan I have to say the 2080 Super destroys it.

        Edit: I mean it has VRAM if that's what you're after?

    Great deal thanks Luke , better parts than prev builds

    Hey Luke
    How quick for delivery on this without the upgrades?

    •  

      We are still working on as close to 14 business days from order to dispatch as possible. There has been a delay in 2070 and 2080 which affected customers were notified of, but those are all starting to move.

    is this good enough for a 1440p 144hz monitor?

    • +3 votes

      Depends on the game but at max settings, many AAA titles will get past 60 but not 120+.

    • +1 vote

      You can hit 100+fps on almost all modern AAA titles if you tweak settings a bit (usually Nvidia Geforce Exp auto optimization thing is spot on)

    • +2 votes

      Yes. I run 3440x1440 on 3600 and 2080, most games are all ultra other than AAA games, more premium titles you need to wind back further.

      I'm happy with 90+ frames, YMMV. Heaps of benchmarking videos on YouTube.

    My 3700x and 2070s cost over $3200 using quality parts. This looks good if you not concerned whats on the inside.

    • +3 votes

      Quality parts for this build is still only around 2k, unless you go over the top on aesthetic or higher specs for other parts (like exotic ITX build / 3800mhz+ ram / 2tb nvme / 1000W gold / AIO / GPU water cool / RGB etc.)

      This is a reasonably balanced spec / parts, only improvements I would make if DIY are better SSD and PSU. Might opt for a tiny bit better GPU but usually I could undervolt + overclock to keep any card runs cool and performs close enough to stock.

    • +1 vote

      This build is pretty quality apart from the SSD and PSU. You just paid way too much.

  •  

    Hi, Great deal!
    Just wanted to ask: do you guys ship to Canberra?
    Also, if I upgrade the motherboard to x570 (with wifi) which one will go into the rig (like which company's board)?
    I have emailed [email protected] before with no reply yet, and I really want to know cuz I want to order this asap.

    •  

      I'm pretty sure Techfast ship to everywhere in Australia.

    • +1 vote

      Canberra, absolutely. Nationwide via AusPost.
      The X570 board will be the MSI X570-A Pro. The X570 with WiFi may vary as supply is still not amazing for them. We have used Asus Tuf WiFi and MSI Gaming Edge in the past but again that may according to what is available.

  •  

    Checks out I think, even if you do replace the PSU, looks pretty close

    Great deal, so tempted to buy. If anyone can help me, is the USB Wi-Fi Adapter $19.00 any good or is there another way to connect the PC via Wi-FI?

    • +2 votes

      i'd personally use a powerline adapter - that would solve all your issues. I use the TP-LINK AV1300, works a treat!

    • +2 votes

      Expect unpleasant connection stability for a $20 wifi adapter. It will work, but don't be surprised if you get connection drops or high pings here and there. These things are just hit and miss. I tried out a range of usb adapters from $15 to $100 from various brand like tp link, d link, netgear etc. but none of them are really reliable for long term heavy use, even the integrated wifi in some high-end motherboards don't fare too well. So I just bought dedicated wifi extenders and wired to PC which worked out much better. If you have a mesh setup then have 1 of the satellites for the PC is probably the best option (but expensive).

    •  

      I got one, not great. Nothing 2.4 was good where I live, got a 5ghz one from ebay with decent antennas, much better. Around $30. If you are close to the router, would prob be OK.

    •  

      The USB one is bad, it uses 802.11n protocol which is quite dated and slow. Note you will possibly run into clearance issues with a PCIe one as I did, and the GPU fan will hit the adapter. I resolved this by spacing them with cardboard (no house fire yet 🤞). I'd recommend a solid USB Wi-Fi adapter or powerline adapter as others have said.

      Yeah and they're not using the awful leaper case with their higher end builds anymore. Actually balanced build this time.

      • +1 vote

        Yes indeed! After the CPU arrived I started getting impatient but considering this would probably take weeks to arrive anyway not going to be any quicker or cheaper or better.

    • +1 vote

      Same, except got the same mother board as this MSI b450m mortar Max, apparently upgradable for future CPU but pretty good balance of features and price, the x570 are a lot more. (Or is the B550 the future proofed one that works with am4?.

      Annoying mobos don't all come with Bluetooth and wifi in this day and age. Mind you the USB adapters like Nolans etc are fine for $14.

      I'm just putting a bit more into the PSU (Corsair 750w 80+ Gold, cheap cases look it but ~$200 aren't perfect and some still don't come with fans - got a Lian Li PP-011 but unsure for a air cooled system could look a bit plain but future potential, otherwise the fractal meshify c looks suitable. Other than that 32gb ram, near new RTX 2060S 8gb , system is coming in pretty cheap, not too interested in RGB when the fans cost more than the case lol.

      • +2 votes

        AMD have stated they will be supporting B450's for next series of CPU's.

      •  

        I can heartily vote for the Meshify. My rig is also 3700x on Mortar in a tinted glass meshify c mini. Looks sleek, fans can run at low speed thanks to the mesh front. Most premium case don't include many fans since people will most likely want to replace with premium/larger fans anyway.

        Corsair RMx price is a bit crazy atm, most likely due to low stock world wide. You probably should look for alternative. I remember buying the RM650x in 2017 for $120 something, 750 was like $10-15 extra but 650 was already more than double for my need back then (it still is, 3700x + 2080 whole system draws like 300w peak, usually 250w when gaming).

        •  

          Good to know, I think the b450m mortar is enough to spend for $180, In never end up upgrading much for years anyway so don't need anything too fancy.

          Front usb C header be handy as the Lian Li Case has one on the front, however think I'm keen to swap for the meshify c for a basic build, get two front ML 140 fans or (3 pack RGB and probe perhaps), but wouldn't need to do much for good airflow as you say and planning on using wraith prism cooler for a while and maybe add a CPU liquid cooler later if it's too loud. The Lian Li would look very plain and run hotter without the water cooling/radiators and and the light fans , all that crap adds up.

          Could have just used my 600w modular PSU, 8yb old now and the other PC be unusable. Got one coming, no updates yet but $215 for the 80+ Gold,v and hopefully claim price drops later.

    Just a warning for those looking to purchase.
    I purchased their pre-built system in Janruary, however have had numerous issues with it since.
    About a month in the graphics card was diagnosed to be faulty and had to be sent back for a replacement, this worked well for about a month, then had issues starting the computer up, after number of diagnostic tests I had to send the entire system back to them and pay for the packaging and shipment costs. After 2 weeks of receiving it, it was diagnosed to be a faulty SSD which was replaced and the system sent back to me on 05/05/2020 and after almost a month I still have not received the system.

    I understand some systems may have issues, but I have had numerous problems since receiving it and after almost 1 month to ship the system back to me i am quite dissatisfied with the product

      I would be contacting the company and asking for the cost of return to be refunded to you as they are in breach of the ACCC consumer laws

      You are entitled to return a product if you believe that there is a problem. You are generally responsible for returning the product if it can be posted or easily returned. You are entitled to recover reasonable postage or transportation costs from the business if the product is confirmed to have a problem, so keep your receipts.

    • +2 votes

      It depends on your use I think. If you're purely going to play games, then get the other one, but if not, get this one. This one is more value I'd say. This one has faster RAM (3200 vs 2666), more space (480 vs 240) and motherboard (MSI Mortar Max vs Stock).

      I'd personally go for this one because it's more value, and I don't think I'm going to notice the difference in performance. Here's the CPU's against each other though: https://cpu.userbenchmark.com/Compare/Intel-Core-i7-10700K-v....

    •  

      If (this is a big if) the b460 board they put in there has good VRM, you could potentially unlock the power limit, allowing the CPU to boost far beyond stock 65w. This way the 10700 non-k could get very close to 10900k in games (only loses out because of gimped ram speed) while being roughly on par with 3700x for productivity tasks. That system still loses out on ssd while cost a tiny bit more though.

      I'd still get this 1 because of well-known high quality board, and much less power consumption and heat (good luck unlocking the power limit on 10700 without swapping to a $100+ cooler to tame that heat).

  •  

    Should I wait for the upcoming deals, or should I pull the trigger on the May sales?

    Are the prices expected to go up considering the situation we're on right now and the Australian dollar dropping?

    • +1 vote

      All speculation. Depends how badly you want it. This is decent, was cheaper a while ago, may be cheaper in the future. End of year we will see new gear (CPU and GPU's), but there is always something better coming…
      What sort of res or frames are you after?

      •  

        Basically the most fps that I can get (preferably 144+) and 1440p.

        • I mainly play competitive fps, but I've been getting into AAA games lately so I want as much fps I can get, but also want that sweet 1440p.
        • I'm also getting a 27GL850 (unless you've got a suggestion)
        • I don't have a computer right now, so I really need one as soon as I can afford it.

        • The game I play the most is cs, and I run it on 4:3, but OW, Valorant and Siege on native.

        • +1 vote

          Most competitive FPS are not the most demanding graphically. This GPU is good, CPU is decent, I personally wouldn't spend more now, really only a question of waiting or not. I use ultrawide for immersion, I don't know much about competitive gaming hardware, but 1ms response and g-sync, looks fine if the reviews are good.

        •  

          The 27GL850, while good, is a bit pricey. You could get something like Viewsonic VX2758-2KP-MHD which cost less than $500.

          Use that saving on the 2080S of https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/540775

          10700 is still slightly ahead of 3700x in competitive 1080p games. If that's your focus, and with similar price here, it's an easy choice.

          •  

            @Kingduytan: Is the price drop representative of how much I'll be missing out on? Every video and articles I've read strongly recommends the GL850, tftcentral included. Also, I'll be lucky to find the VX2758-2KP-MHD in stock :(

            The Viewsonic's price is very tantalizing, but I'm so convinced on buying the GL850. I'm not sure if I'm inventing reasons to get the more expensive monitor.

            • +1 vote

              @tlphx: Looks like Centercom and Scorptec will restock the Viewsonic soon-ish. But if you need it now then yeah…

              I highly doubt you will miss out in proportion to money save. Look at comparison here. The LG has better color accuracy while the VS has better contrast and black. I'd rather have the latter since it directly impact game visuals. These are good IPS panels so color isn't a major deciding factor for non-graphic designers.

              I owned a viewsonic or 2 a while ago, they are a known brand with decent quality at affordable price. The LG got very good reviews, but I find it hard to swallow the massive price gap with questionable gain (and loss).

            • +1 vote

              @tlphx: I have to say I picked up the Viewsonic a couple weeks back and despite having an issue with my Xbox One X not communicating with it properly to hit 1440p/120hz I've been stoked at the performance of it on my PC at 1440p/144hz. The Xbox issue is likely just that and really not of much concern for most people/this generation. Other than that the monitor looks fantastic. I was really weighing up between this and the LG and pulled the pin finally, and I don't regret it.

    Hey guys, I'm an absolute newbie with computers and looking to get my first PC. I'm looking to mostly just play games, nothing else that's intensive (video editing, etc), and just want to know if this or the other deal (https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/540512) would be better for this? I'm mostly looking for a system that gives me value for performance and wouldn't want to spend more money than I need to.

    Or should I just wait for a better deal rather than shoot for the May deals instead?

    Cheers guys!

    •  

      Depends on the games and the monitor you're using.

    • +2 votes

      I'd personally go (and did go) this deal Mattoon simply because there are branded components here. Other deals are a random lottery choice of components mixed with unknown/lessers brands. It's always good to know what youre paying for and the value for money for this deal is exceptional.

      However if you do not care about component brands, then for your case - go r5 3600 deal since the 3600 vs 3700x is not much of a performance upgrade if youre just playing games.
