ASUS TUF 5700XT & AMD Ryzen 3600 Gaming PC $1699 + Shipping @ Titan Tech

890

Hey OzBargainers

We received a few requests for a 5700XT build! We essentially threw together the exact same build as the 2070 super with the same specs but for $180 less with almost the exact same performance. The 5700XT has been known to have some heating issues but with a big open case like this you will be fine. Although a water cooled CPU can never hurt especially for just $100.

-CPU: AMD Ryzen 3600 with 6 cores & 12 threads at 3.6ghz base speed.
-Motherboard: Gigabyte Aorus B450 Pro Wi-Fi. Full ATX with RGB accents, Integrated Wi-Fi & Bluetooth plus extra expansion slots.
-RAM: Kingston 16gb 3200mhz RGB (2x8gb)
-SSD: Kingston A2000 500GB NVMe
-GPU: Asus Radeon RX 5700 XT 8 GB TUF Gaming X3 EVO OC 
-PSU: Thermaltake 600w Gold Rated 80+ Power Supply
-Tower: Deepcool Matrexx 50 Tempered Glass Window and 3x Pre installed RGB fans.

    spawning a wild Rajeh in the comments

    • holy shit i think he approves of this post. I think Titan Tech peaked.

    • lol love this comment! but seriously kudos to Rajeh + others who leave insightful comments. I have learnt so much from just trawling the comments from all the TitanTech, TechFast posts the last month. BIG THANK YOU!

  • Wow! Wished I ordered from here than CGB.

    • By the sounds of what's going on with CGB, people who order from here might get theirs sooner than those who ordered from CGB.

    • Was it because of late delivery?

      CGB's deal was $150 less, with doubled memory stick (32GB v16GB), better CPU (3600x v 3600), I'd still think CGB is a better deal in terms of value.

      • They still haven't been built i don't think.

      • After 5 1/2 weeks, I've been sent a tracking number. I'd say contact them and they will offer free upgrades as compensation depending on the time you waited. Hopefully all of us get it soon.

      • CGB are Melbourne based - I think we can cut them some slack on their build & delivery times.
        I have queried a couple of times and received prompt responses.
        As I understand it the orders from the last offer are about to be shipped.

      • I know this is the post for Titan tech, but I personally wouldn't mind waiting a few weeks for the sake of over $300, given the current situation. Unfortunately I didn't get that deal, but hoping CGB continues to offer good value products.

    Very good deal! This was as close as I could get. CPU and RAM from Amazon (will be using express shipping), Case and Motherboard from PCCG (they charge a lot for shipping) (apparently not), Power Supply from Umart, Video Card from SaveOnIT and the rest from Centrecom. So I'd estimate $20 (Amazon) + $12 (PCCG) + $13 (Umart) + $17.60 (SaveOnIT) = $62.60 from shipping. $1582 + $62.60 = $1644.60 so it's only a $54.40 build fee which is very good without even considering it's all from one place with a universal warranty. No US imports either, and I feel Amazon's expedited shipping may be more than $20. Not including the $6.99 Amazon Prime fee either.

    Edit: Updated with calculated shipping costs to Melbourne except for Amazon as I have no account (SAY WHAAA?!). 3600 is closer to $275 now.

  • Just bought this model 5700xt and for anyone wondering the original TUF performed badly but they seemed to have remidied it with the EVO version https://youtu.be/LpW1gku2Kc4

    • still waiting for delivery or already in use?
      If in use how do you find it?

      • Model should be presented in the form of a sticker on the card itself, otherwise just run a very demanding game or stress test and make sure there are no alarming temps. Alarming temps:

        GPU/Edge > 80c
        Junction/Hotspot > 100c
        Memory/GDDR6 > 85c
        VRM/VDDC > 85c

        • just wanted to get an idea from spammington as I might lean towards the 2070 super instead.

          • @Pufff: Ooooh I took "how do you find it?" a little differently lol. Hardware Unboxed shows it spins 1800rpm with 85c junction temps (don't be alarmed, this is a new sensor which is more accurate and around 10-20c higher than older ones, if you want to compare with NVIDIA use the legacy Core or GPU temp sensor which was around 64c). This is really good. Obviously not spammington but just another source you can consider.

            Can also undervolt it for even better temps, AMD cards tend to undervolt the farthest, and the best of all is that AMD's driver offers an auto undervolt feature which works with just one click. I've tried it on 2 RX 5700s (mine before I got it replaced and the new one) and it's given them stable voltages.

      • Still waiting for delivery but after looking at numerous reviews and the video linked, I'm pretty confident it will perform well compared to other 5700XT models. Asus really have to redeem themselves after the initial poor performance of the first TUF model and are otherwise a highly competent manufacturer.

        • It seems to be a less efficient cooler design, the PowerColor Red Dragon will outperform it while being significantly smaller, so ASUS have just brute forced it, but at it's price you can't complain.

          • @Rajeh: Well yeah from a price / performance point of view it's very good value, great results at the cost of a higher fan speed and slightly higher noise. On the plus side, it's lighter so there'll be less GPU sag!

            • @spammington: You're talking about the Red Dragon? It ran quieter than the TUF EVO X3 according to Hardware Unboxed, but we don't have this godly model here.

  • I never bought from them I I probably won't since I build my own pc but that is a pretty good deal. I guess as mentioned before by having all the parts from the same place and assuming that if you have any warranty issue they might help you. Good on you guys.

  • What is the turn around time and cost of delivery in Syd area?

    Also I see many mentions of heating problems but how bad does it get?

    • This is the TUF EVO model, indicating that it is a revised version. It performs very well now, probably in the top 5 of 5700 XT models.

    • I have the TUF EVO 5700XT and it works great for me. No issues with heating (or any driver issues either)

      • Thanks
        What's a good monitor to pair with this system?
        Nothing too flashy required.

        • This is a 1440p system, so probably something like a Viewsonic VX2758-2KP-MHD. If you're looking for a cheaper monitor for the perceived longevity of the PC itself look no further than the AOC 24G2.

  • Do you guys have anything special planned for Black Friday or at the least any cheaper deals? I know this is a bit early to be asking but I would be interested in knowing if you had anything planned
    Thanks

  • How much is the Windows 10 license? It says you can buy one but it's not listed.

    • You can't buy it from Titan Tech. You will have to enter the product key you receive into the activation dialogue box in Windows 10 from whoever you purchased it from. When it is unactivated you will have a persistent watermark on the bottom right of your display and you can't set any UI colour schemes. Windows 10 100% legitimate retail keys are around $100-200, grey market keys are $10-20.

      Edit: They do sell it, seems to be cheaper than other retailers for a 100% legit key too.

      It is listed in 'parts' until we re design our website in a few weeks :) The keys we sell are drop shipped from an authorized re seller.

      https://www.titantechit.com/product-page/windows-10-official...

    • Probably my reply is going to be neg, but I bought a key for win 10 pro from Ebay for something like 5-9 bucks from those guys who disappear after some time.

      • It is what it is. They key you used is legit, it just most likely wasn't obtained through legit channels.

        I know i'll probably be buying my key in the $10-$50 range.

          If that is the avenue you want to look down, You can get them for 6$ ;) It is just illegal and not recommend / endorsed by us.

  • OP avatar checks out

  • nice touch mobo with wifi kit

  • Waiting for RTX 3000 gang.

  • I don’t know anything about computers - is this a good deal?

    • In short, yes. In long, yyyeeesss.

      It would be well suited for a 1440p monitor for gaming at maximum settings with smooth framerates.

      It really depends what your budget is and what you are wanting to use the PC for.

      Considering you dont know a lot about computers you should note sometimes there are some drivers issues with AMD graphics cards but most of the time they are fine. This is a much better bang for you buck compared to the 2070 super builds but again, it really depends what your needs are.

      If you have the money to spare I would say go for it, although my opinion is a bit biased haha.

      • I've noticed that Navi cards in particular are significantly more sensitive to unstable DRAM and Infinity Fabric than NVIDIA cards, so to save yourselves and your buyers the hassle make sure to stress test the memory before shipping. Infinity Fabric isn't an issue with 3200 RAM. This has been observed by many on r/amd.

      • I remember my 2nd build back in late 2003. My card of choice was ATI Radeion 9600 for new coming Half-Life 2 and Doom 3. All was good but drivers.. Well, I remember I had to use alternative Omega drivers for this card and eventually moved to Nvidia Graphics card as their drivers were more well suited to play games. Not sure if it is a case now, but still have a bit of concern thinking of using AMD graphics card.

        • As a 5700 and 570 owner I haven't had issues on either. Navi has been 95% stable since Adrenalin 20.2.2 (100% for me). I've noticed that the way the RDNA architecture or its drivers interacts with RAM is quite stressful, and your average PC builder will expect XMP to always work out of the box because it posted. From most of my encounters with people having issues on Reddit, it's been users with these issues. So this isn't a driver issue per se but it definitely affects many users who don't know or don't bother to stress test individual components. I think there are still some issues in uncommon system setups though.

          This is probably going to be a controversial comment, as anything related to Navi driver issues is.

      • Thanks Isaac really appreciate the thoughts.

  • Sorry, noob here. I wanting to get a gaming PC and Mwave was always my first choice. I don't understand how these PCs are so cheap compare to the ones on Mwave. Is it Mwave a massive rip-off ?

    • Pretty much.

      An explanation would be nice, because it's worthless to just neg something without one. But I don't know what I expected, this forum is no better than Reddit. You can rest assured that Reel90 has followed "bad advice".

    • Hah yes, the prices of Mwave PC's are CRAZY high. These Techfast and Titan Tech deals are heaps and bounds better value

    • You’re paying for all the middlemen involved in Mwave so yes, their logistics crew costs and operations may cost alot more due to their size. They are also paying rent :)

      • Thanks dudes, I am on the edge of getting GTX 2060 or 2070. I dont know what is better considering cost vs value. I want to play game like Anno, Dota2, occasinally Warzone and Hitman…My budget is tight (1.5k more less ). and comparing between these vendors Tech fast, Titan tech and Cravelation …Which one would you recommended ?

  • My techfast pc is dead on arrival. Please fix it fastly.

    • This imho, I swear I'm not affiliated with Titan Tech lol. Way more future proof CPU (my 3500X is already showing it's weakness in thread hungry games), better motherboard, better storage config (250GB SSD is going to get thrown in the garbage anyway) and better PSU. The 5700 XT is very close to a 2070 Super anyway. Also isn't the run only limited to 15?

    • +5 votes

      CPU: Titan Tech - 3600 over 3500x any day
      GPU: Debatable, But IMO Titan Tech
      MB: Definitely Titan Tech - Wifi and bluetooth etc
      RAM: Essentially the same just brand name differernce
      SSD: Titan Tech only because of size difference
      HDD: Techfast - We have no HDD by default
      PSU: I would say Titan tech
      Case: Subjective

      Price - Techfast

      • GPU debatable? The 2070 Super outperforms the 5700 XT across the board, and offers the better NVENC encoder and all of NVIDIA's overhyped yet still somewhat useful AI features. When we're talking about the DIY market, 5700 XT every day, but when it's a prebuilt which is $100 cheaper that isn't debatable. I agree with the rest of your points though.

        •  

          Not debatable performance wise haha dont get me wrong. But deciding the price to performance ratio on the 5700xt to 2070 super has always been right for me.

          • @Titan Tech: Yes, though my point was that you're not comparing each part standalone. You're comparing them in 2 different systems with the one with the better performing GPU being cheaper.

      • I don't think there's any debate that the 2070S is a better card than the 5700XT. GPUs are arguably the most important component for many people so this puts a little shade over an otherwise correct list.

  • Contacted Titan tech for custom build over a week ago and they still haven't gotten back.

    • They are usually good in communication. But seems there is lot of work squared away for them. Hence might be the delay.
      I ordered a PC, after 4 weeks, i got it.
      It was put together, installed windows home and thats it, nothing else was done. I had to work with my friend for some time to get things going.
      So be advised, you need to know a bit more to fiddle around with BIOS or have someone help you.

      • i thought their systems just needed windows activation?
        was yours custom build?

        • You can run Windows 10 unactivated with a watermark.

          • @Rajeh: understand i dont want them to activate windows, especially when i havent paid for it.
            1. All internal SSD drives were showing as removable drives in windows. BIOS update required.
            2. RAM was out of its slot when arrived. Not sure if its TNT's fault and no Fragile sticker.
            3. No physical invoice attached, but was requested.
            4. RAM speed was left vanilla and i got 3200 mhz suggested by Issac. Least expectation was to atleast set that correct before shipping to customer.
            5. CPU speed, i am not sure if i have to check that or it was left default at BIOS.
            6. This was a complete custom build.

            Over all, I am enjoying my machine. But i had to get my mates assistance to get something over and just to keep this in mind.

            Would have been panic by a noob user / buyer.

      • What issues were you having the required you mess around with the BIOS? Ram speeds? CPU compatibility?

        • i need to confirm this too cause im looking to buy.
          everything's fully set up right? apart from windows

      •  

        Apologies Elmo, We have since expanded and opened our own shop with 2x full time technicians working. As opposed to just me and my brother trying to build 50 PC's a week haha. Hopefully next time we can provide much faster service.

        • If you are building 50pc's a week, you have not done too much damage. May be I am too much of demanding bunch.
          But for 80-100 a PC build, i am not expecting too much, to be fair on you.

  • Awesome deal!

  • Would this system be good for video editing as well as gaming?

    • AMD's encoder isn't particularly great as a 5700 owner. It takes 60Mbps for near perfect picture quality at 1080p60. It will be fastest, though if file size is of concern you can use the 3600 to do all the encoding. I'm stuck with using the 5700 because my 3500X is quite weak for the task.

      • I have been thinking of getting a system that can edit videos from my mavic pro in 4k would that be asking too much of something like this? I'm thinking at the very least I would need double the ram on offer here.

  • Just wondering, how would this game run something like valorant? i.e how much fps would you get

    • Valorant isn't very demanding from what i've seen. You'll easily get over 144 FPS on max settings with this build.

      • Ah righto cheers, really looking to get 300 stable imo. Do you think with everything dropped to low this could easily do that?

        • 1080 or 2k? AMD GPUs run a lot better than the 2070/2080 when it comes to gaming.

          You'll hit your 300 FPS on max at 1080P with this build.

          At 2k with the 5700XT i'd say you'll get 200~ FPS (could be a lot more but i'm not 100% sure).
