  • A $350 upgrade to go from 3600 to 3700x @@

  • Wow, this is really bad. Here's my 3700X build from PC Part Picker and I think mine has better RAM, storage, power supply and case (correct me if I'm wrong). Plus, these parts go on sale so often on Ozbargain, I bet you can slash a couple hundred off if you're thrifty and patient enough to wait for deals on specific parts.

    • CGB, shipping and communication issues aside had a much better deal with twice the RAM and a gold PSU, although with a 3600X instead of a 3700X. Also a case from a much more reputable brand. This kinda sucks

    • Agreed, there are so many great deals on components these days, plus other alternatives for pre builds (CGB, TitanTech).

    • I also think your GPU is better

    • Not really a fair comparison.
      Any company that posts a built is entitled to at least 10% extra for assembly, configuration and testing.

      Sometimes these 'I can build it cheaper' posts are fair, but mostly they're not.

      Don't get me wrong, I've been a DIY builder for 25 years, but I'm more than happy for shops to offer pre-built for a reasonable premium.

      Here is where your list fails.
      PCPP fails to include postage almost all the time (says it includes it when available, but never seems to be available).
      The stock is usually spread around half a dozen places.
      The cheapest prices of PCPP are not always in stock, and often can be prices for a run-out sale a seller had.

      Your component quality is slightly better, but I'd not have picked that SSD as a primary drive (no cache).
      The PSU is a good choice, 80+ Bronze is a sensible personal minimum for me.
      Would be good to see a lower power PSU but good quality ones can be hard to get, there really needs to be a sensible range of 300W, 400W and 500W PSU's.
      That way you could size a PSU to the system better.
      I'm using a Corsair HX750i (recycled from a dual processor workstation) and it's not a good fit.
      At idle the PSU is under around 5% load and with a maximum artificial load on the CPU and GPU i hit 300W, so a well made 500W would have been plenty, and the system would spend more time operating closer to the PSU's peak efficiency.

      That got way too long.

      Ultimately in the real world you'd struggle to match the posted specs / price and sell them for enough to run a sustainable business.
      I don't think the post is a bargain to me, thus not upvoting, but it's not really worthy of a downvote either.

      • Since you mentioned delivery fees, I'll create an updated list that includes shipping. You don't need to pay 10%+ of your money just to have components assembled and tested (I doubt they test every single machine, my old PC from Techfast had a faulty part) and arrive late in true Techfast style. I reckon this 3700X build can be built for well under $1400-1500 quite easily - perhaps even closer to $1100-1200 when the new GPUs and CPUs are released very soon. But anyway, the updated list:

        CPU: Ryzen 7 3700X ($456.07, Amazon including shipping)
        Motherboard: MSI B450M Mortar Max ($179, Centrecom including shipping)
        Memory: Patriot Viper 4 Blackout Series DDR4 16GB (2 x 8GB) 3000MHz ($93, Amazon including shipping)
        SSD: WD Green 480GB 2.5" SSD ($64.95, Amazon including shipping)
        Video card: MSI RADEON RX 5700 XT EVOKE OC 8GB ($599, Centrecom including shipping)
        PSU: Corsair Fully Modular PSU 80 Plus Gold RM550x ($144, Amazon including shipping - you're right, better to have top of the line 550w than 650w)
        Case: Thermaltake Versa H17 Window Micro Case ($57, Amazon including shipping - changed to mATX case since motherboard is also mATX, why didn't I think of this in the first place?)
        TOTAL: $1593.02

        Much, much cheaper at mostly stock/still inflated prices and yet the PSU is way better and video card is likely slightly better. And if you spend around $30 more you can get much faster RAM. Maybe I'm being a bit harsh but if you consider that Techfast gets cheaper-than-market prices for their parts, it's quite the premium to pay. Plus, I miss those killer old Techfast deals.

        • I think you missed the point entirely.

          Not everyone wants to DIY a PC.
          This means that there is space for a business to do so.

          But businesses have overheads to pay.
          Premises rent, utilities, book keeping, insurance, wages, marketing plus a bunch of other things.

          Going the DIY route for any PC running a discrete GPU is always going to be cheaper, that i won't argue with.
          But comparing the price you can build it for, to the price a business might charge is not grounds for saying the business is over charging.

          Given the generic nature of the parts i think the deal is crap personally and would DIY all day long, but it might have value for someone who wants a nice machine on a tight budget, but is not confident to DIY, nor has access ready to anyone who can help.

          So to be clear, i'd go your way any day of the week, better choice of parts and lower price.. it's a no brainier.
          Unfortunately this is not the way everyone wants to go.

          Also need to clear up a mistake earlier, looks like WD do ahve cache in their smaller 2.5" SATA SSD's, and they review well, so good pick, good price.

  • Hey Luke!

    Don't know where to post this so delete if needed, but any chance we will be seeing this deal again?

    Would snap it up in a heartbeat! Thanks again and stay safe.
