Gigabyte Aorus B550 Pro AC Gaming PC with 3700x and No Graphics Card for $1429 @ Titan Tech

450

Hey OzBargain!

We know you are all very keen for the new 3000 range coming out soon so here is our attempt at a '3000 range ready' system. I do think these cards go well with the best system you can afford and I think it is important to make sure the rest of your build suits your shiny new GPU. We are currently aiming at a 2-3 day dispatch for these machines would should ideally arrive right when your 3080's do.

I encourage anyone who can build there own system, to do so. As we all know there are some crazy deals out there at the moment. Having said that, for those who cannot, or do not want to, here is another option for you!

Here is the PCPP version of this system coming in at $1,361 before shipping.

Comments

  • Correct me if im wrong but b550 will work with a 3080 but it will also slow it down?

    • Correcting you.

      Even pci gen3 while below the maximum throughput threshold is unlikely to see any real world fps hit.

      Though b550 is gen4 anyway.

      • Yep.. NVIDIA used PCIE gen 3 (i9) to benchmark their 3080s for all the slides that are available currently.. obviously a non issue.

        • Depends if your nvme drive is allocated to the same pcie lane and whether you're reading writing to it. Also at high resolutions 4k/8k with rtx on you will be right on the edge of the capacity of 3.0 if not over. This was tested again with an i9 + a 2080ti on tomshardware.

          PCIE 3.0 will be a limiting factor for these very very high end cards especially at maximum resolution. That being said the likelihood of this being relevant for the average buyer is close to 1% of the entire pcmasterrace if not lower.

      • Confirming that this board wouldn't slow the RTX 3080 down, but benchmarks haven't as yet been released, but you should still be good. B550 AMD boards are great, in that they are already PCI 4.0 compatible, and importantly with this comes upgraded VRAM and cooling to best handle current and next gen parts.

        Importantly, B550 boards - which are mid-range AMD boards, and X570 boards - which are top-end AMD boards (though these are expensive and enthusiast orientated) are forwards and backwards compatible*, meaning they'll welcome current chipsets in, say, the AMD Ryzen 3700X, and they'll already be upgrade ready for the RTX 3000 series, and PCI 4.0 SSDs (I wouldn't actually recommend these for the time-being because they're too expensive and you wouldn't notice a real world difference), and AMD Zen 3 Ryzen (I'd recommend looking at and possibly upgrading to these when they're revealed) ready without needing to replace these motherboards.
        *Though not compatible with older Ryzen chipsets.

        You'll have a beast of a computer.

      I think the main thing you need to worry about slowing your 3080 down is your monitor!

    • thank you, i thought b550 was gen3, cant seem to edit my comment for some reason

  • good price, I will buy i9 z490, haha

  • Plus 1 for the PCPP price quote, good stuff from both.

  • I wonder if they'll stretch this to include no CPU either since the 4000 series might be available very soon.

    • Yeah I was thinking the same lol but that's probably too big a stretch, cause may as well build your own PC by then

  • I'm sorry to say but this pcpp is no where near competitive enough

      None of those Computer Alliance eBay prices show on my PCPP?

      I do not include NewEgg or Amazon in my PCPP as they usually have one of the following issues, Non GST inclusive prices or Incredibly long shipping.

      The worst thing for me with them is claiming warranty means shipping both ways from US. The prices I included are the lowest Australian sellers I could see.

      I would appreciate if you can show me a link your PCPP build with Computer Alliance eBay?

  • Sorry TT, your previous deals were great but I give the prize to TF for this one.

    Under $1.2k after upgrading MoBo to B550/X570 (no wifi), 1TB ram and Gold PSU (G750h).

    You are getting negs cause you didn't build a dirty piece of rubbish rig like techfast do to save $200 on total cost.

  • Is XMP enabled before you send the system out?

    • I've blocked Techfast so I don't even see them but this isn't any better than the deals I saw and was blocking. A key reason to buy a pre-built PC is so that it is professionally assembled and the whole thing comes under one warranty. If anything goes wrong there is no question which retailer supplied it. This build negates that, and for what advantage exactly?

    •  

      Yes, unlike some of our previous systems these come fully ready to go.

  • Why wouldn't you just wait till GPUs are available?

  • Up-voting for the honesty in the OP.

      I personally wouldn't say 1080ti and 3070 are even in the same ball park.

      • That assertion is arguable at best.

        1080ti has been serving me for roughly 2 years, 3070 is yet to arrive.

        So yeah, the 3070 isnt even in the same ballpark, there're not even playing ball.

  • Nice, i'll take 2.

  • Good solid components

  • +1 as I was expecting a shit-house PSU to make the price this is at but thoroughly impressed by an RM series

    I'm considering buying something like this although not rn nonetheless I will be on the lookout for more post of yours in the near future for sure
