Virco N526a ASUS Solid Gaming PC with AMD Ryzen 5 5600x & RTX 3070 $2258 + Shipping @ Virco Computer

1520

Morning OzBargainer,

Virco has finally decided to release AMD Ryzen 5 5600x bundle with RTX3070 System. The reason we wait for so long is because we have to insure we have stock ON HAND before we sell to our customer. We sell what we have in stock in the shop, not what supplier “maybe” has in stock. That is the reason why most of our machines can be picked up on the same day of purchase, or dispatch on the following day. Please check our facebook page for the photos (https://www.facebook.com/vircocomputer/). We value our service to reasonable customers, we thank you for all the OzBargainer continuously giving us support and encouragement.

This week, we have two RTX3070 systems ready for build:

First one is mainly based with ASUS components, we have studied from most of OzBargainer’s previous recommendations, we provide a full size mainboard, WiFi 6 and Bluetooth 5.0 Connection, with 3200Mhz C16 RAM, 750W 80+ Gold Fully modular power supply, using a case with lots of fan included. This build should be suitable with most PC gaming enthusiasts. All the stock on hand, ready for you guys to order. Options are not ready yet due to the complicity of webpage, but we would post up the options tonight for liquid cool options and extra storage such as SSD or HDD. or you can simply message us for the upgrade option now for early access of the system.

Specs

  • CPU: AMD Ryzen 5 5600x 6 Core 12 Threads Socket AM4 4.6GHz CPU Processor
  • CPU COOLING: Wraith Stealth Cooler
  • MAINBOARD: ASUS TUF GAMING B550-PLUS AM4 ATX Motherboard
  • MEMORY: Corsair Vengeance LPX 16GB (2x 8GB) DDR4 3200MHz Memory

    I think you've hit the sweet-spot with the first system in terms of value at this price point. All the parts seem decent but not overkill (and hence not too expensive given the rest of the system).

    Well done! I'm sure some will quibble over a component they'd prefer but I think this is very solid.

    Worth comparing to this deal and deciding for yourself.

    • +4 votes

      The deal you attached has the Ryzen 5 3600. I think you mean this deal which has the Zen 3 CPU’s.

      I think a fairer comparison is this deal for the same CPU:
      https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/578949

      It's perfectly reasonable to argue a ryzen 3600 is adequate though.

      If going for a 5600x I'd prefer the Virco as it has all the necessary upgrades at decent prices and you know what components you're getting. Everything is also in stock (although the bargain-basement 3080 from Techfast would be tempting if willing to wait)

    Really good deal!

    With regards to the first build, here's my opinion.
    PCPartPicker: ~$2,290

    • Motherboard: Top-tier for its features at its price point. See here for more information.
    • Memory: I'm assuming its 3200CL16. Best value RAM speed in my opinion. Sure, a faster 3600CL16 is technically better, but if we're being honest, real-world differences are basically imperceptible.
    • GPU: No need to wait for an unknown amount of time before you can get your GPU. If you were willing to spend $1,100 for the RTX 3070 in the first place, then this is great. Note that the RTX 3070 has an RRP of $809.
    • PSU: This is where most system builders cheap out on. But the Deepcool DQ750-M is one of the best top-tier PSUs according to LinusTechTips' PSU Tier List. This is a PSU I would personally consider myself.

    For the price you pay:

    • You get immediate stock on the RTX 3070.
    • You save around $50, most likely more for not having to pay delivery from multiple vendors.
    • You save time for not having to do your own research and hunting for bargains.
    • You don't have to assemble the computer yourself.
    • You don't have to stress-test the computer (unless Virco does not perform stress tests).
    • You don't have to deal with any assembly issues, e.g. if the PC does not POST, or if a component is DOA and you have to figure out which component is DOA.
    • You have a single vendor for warranty purposes.

    Overall, it's a great bargain!

    • +2 votes

      The SSD, the Kingston A2000 is a NVME drive with micron TLC, and an decent controller. No cheaping out with a SATA M.2 drive, or dram-less NVME. It might not have the sequential read speed of higher tier drives but you'd never notice. It's a solid performing drive that hits the price-performance sweet spot atm IMO.

      It's really well chosen set of components. If I was building a PC now it's pretty much the exact same parts I'd use

  •  

    Will you guys be building a system with Ryzen 5000 and Radeon 6000 parts when released?

    • +9 votes

      of course, we are computer shop, we have to keep updating to keep up the trend.

      We would announce 6000 series when we have stock on hand. Currently, no ETA on that. Supplier told us we need to bundle some old GPU again, that would be another ugly fight for it. dame….

      •  

        Isn't the 6000 series launching November 18th? Or is that just is the US?

        •  

          Yes.
          It seems like wholesalers need to sell off older GPU stock, so they are telling the stores they need to order the 6000series with older series (amd?) GPU for priority.

    I'm still struggling with the 5600x purchase, 20% improvement over the 3600 but 55% more in price..

    • +2 votes

      Yeah I agree with you, most reviews compare it to intels top chips and say its great value, but when you compare it to Amd's own 3600… the value proposition drops. If you play in 4k there is no way to justify the 5600x and thats why I have held off personally.

      •  

        If you play in 4K and expect to use a 3080 what cpu do you recommend?

        •  

          Ryzen 3600 with RTX 3080 GPU

          •  

            @Agret: Hmm are you sure they are a good match of power and I won't agret this?

            •  

              @AlienC: If you can pick up a 3600 on a deal for say $270, that gives you similar performance in all titles at 4k and $200 in your pocket to buy the 5600 if it comes out in January. You could then sell your 3600 for $150 second hand + $200 saved previously and boom free 5600 in January/February and you barely lose any frames at 4k in the meantime.

              •  

                @Voucherd: Sounds like a good plan.

                I'm not too budget limited to go a few more hundred above a 5600x what is worth getting there or is it all just minor increases for a waste of say an extra $250 going to a CPU.

                I will be using this pc for a few years minimum so I want to future proof it a bit but not too overboard into extreme oc territory just stock clock high end territory before the performance to price ratio goes to crazy.

                •  

                  @AlienC: It is absolutely not a good plan even with his quoted prices.
                  Currently the 3600 is no longer discounted due to the sheer price difference and performance difference. (5600x sent 3600 prices up instead of down)

                  Secondly, and most importantly you pay 5600x for a 5600 down the road, and pay extra for the inconvenience of reassembling the CPU twice and less time on the better tech. You are paying extra for a slower and worse overall experience.

                  It goes against all logic.

              • +1 vote

                @Voucherd: By that math you might as well buy the 5600X now, you end up out of pocket the same amount and get a better binned processor in the end, and without having to wait.

              •  

                @Voucherd: I don't get how that's saving money…

                •  

                  @adepta: sorry can you eli5 because I was not sure what you were trying to convey there

                  so is there anything worth getting above a 5600x that will be paired with a 3080

                  I just want to delay the next upgrade after this one for as much as possible that is all but also not going to go into ridiculous price territory but like would the 5700x or 5900x be a good well decent upgrade might buy me an extra year or two on delaying the next upgrade which honestly is worth a lot of money to me because changing pc's for me currently is a big headache

                  • +1 vote

                    @AlienC: What I’m saying the guys plan is to buy twice:
                    Ie. 3600 then 5600.

                    But it costs the same price as the 5600x
                    (Money is lost selling 3600 second hand)

                    So get the 5600x to begin with and you get a better processor the entire time.

                    •  

                      @adepta: Ah I get ya now.

                      Yeah that makes sense.

                      So if you wanted to spend an extra $100-300 more above a 5600X what would you get or is 5600X the best one to get in terms of value.

                      FWIW I will be pairing it with something between a 3080 to a 3090.

                      •  

                        @AlienC: I’d say the 5600x is fine for 99% of the general home use cases. I think it’s definitely the best value in the 5000 series.

                        If you don’t have a use case for more cores/threads at the moment then there isn’t really a need to go higher as the value proposition is generally worse in the higher tiers.

                        Depends on what you use the computer for but if I were to build, I’d go for the 5600x myself.

                        •  

                          @adepta: Basically just trying to overcompensate for day when I have all my background programs competing for CPU cycles and usage simultaneously so really it won't be for gaming but making sure that while I game or do anything I can also do say 10 other big things in the background obviously at a reduced speed but you know what I mean.

                          I basically want it to be a pc that can handle a lot of things happening under stress.

      •  

        3600/3080 for 4k?

        •  

          The higher the res, the less of a bottleneck a cpu is, as the cpu can take more time to process each frame.

    • +3 votes

      Not a lot of reasons to spend the premium for zen3 at 1440p or above, except if you play cs go

      •  

        I think certain games are very CPU intensive think turn based games and some RTS games.

        Also I believe some simulation games use the CPU a lot more than just standard FPS titles so if your game library is very diverse then it might be worth it to get a higher CPU I know for me I will be using it on a number on things so the incentive to go just beyond normal gaming is high CPU wise but I don't need extreme end level but just a bit higher than the average gamer.

    That second build with a large HDD would be so cool. Going to check out the options when it goes live.

        Thanks!

      you are at Ozbargain mate. You might be glad to know that 8tb Cmr hhd is $200/14tb is $300 here

  •  

    I may as well ask here… I am considering getting a desktop PC, since I'd like to be able to do some video editing and minimal gaming. I am not very familiar with component parts these days. Most of all the PC deals in ozbargain look like they have super flashy PC Cases and RGB LEDs.This case also looks all fancy with LED fans and tempered glass side etc.

    But, I'd prefer something simple, maybe smaller/compact, without flashing lights and LEDs. Is there an option for this, or can someone recommend a different deal?

  •  

    Our last deal provide pretty good deal with no RGB or anything fancy, please check it out.

    Hey Mr virco. What's the easiest way to have you add the case fans? I presume they are not included.

    • +5 votes

      for Deepcool Matrexx 50-3F, it comes with 3F at front panel. If you need extra Fan at rear or somewhere else, please let us know after purchase. We are happy to put extra one Fan at rear with no extra cost.

      •  

        I noticed in the description that the case will be
        ‘Deepcool Matrexx 50 ADD RGB 4F Tempered Glass Mid-Tower E-ATX Case’. So am I correct in saying that the case for the ASUS RTX 3070 will have 4 fans?

        • +3 votes

          wops, meant to be 3F, mistake. but anyway, we would add extra Fan on it.

  • +5 votes

    I recommend these guys, even though you would argue to compare their deals to techfast. I just found their parts are more about premium other than cheap out. not to say the delivery speed. when I buy a pc system, I just can't wait over weeks to get hands on it.

  • +4 votes

    I can recommend Virco. They are a pretty good company that offer excellent builds with quality branded parts at reasonable prices.

  •  

    Would this deal here with a 3080 card be a better value? https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/578949

    • +3 votes

      The virco deal has a better SSD and Motherboard and they have STOCK IN HAND. For the 3080 TechFast deal, you don’t know how long the wait is for 3080 deal as it is a preorder and some people who have purchased a 3080 system from TechFast in September have not received there allocated 3080 for their builds yet.

      •  

        I dont think the deal above is still going? when you click on the website the prices have gone back up?

      We don't have much stock on hand, so probably not a good idea for Ozbargainers. Price won't be friendly anyway.

      We will post RTX3080/3090 on our webpage, that's all.

  •  

    Any chance to change the case ?

    •  

      Sorry, not for this build.

    •  

      Just to add my 2 cents - I have this case with a Ryzen 9 3900 (AIO 240mm cooler)/32gb ram/awaiting 3080) but so far its been fine - temps are good and I think it looks OK. Not the best reviews compared to others, but its also in the cheapish bracket.

    This maybe OOT and irrelevant, but this morning I went to Capitol Square for the very first time since CoVid WFH; the urge to find Virco was there for some reason but I got lost in this carnival where heaps of electronic claw machines and photobooths and also plenty of Japanese teenagers wannabe.

    Great deal, Virco; upvoted; I am liking more and more of your deal than TechFast. As others have said, your machine are more quality/brand driven than them but still at a competitive price.

    •  

      Virco are using parts they have instock from big brands. Techfast don't keep a lot of stock and purchase parts once people have made orders. Typically they'll go for cheaper brands like Biostar, generic power supplies etc.

      •  

        Guess we stock way too much stock…. need bigger place to fulfill the orders.
        www.facebook.com/vircocomputer —> lots photos to see whats going on

        Our team building all the system now, planning to ship out either today or tomorrow.

        Thank you for all you guys's support

        •  

          I've seen your store before in Capitol Square. You really are running out of room!

          I'm hoping to buy a system from you guys soon. Possible to add the option of an air cooler for the builds in future deals? I'm not a fan of liquid AIOs and want something with more grunt than the stock cooler. Deepcool Gammax is a good range of budget coolers.

      •  

        Ok that makes alot more sense.

  •  

    Is there a warranty offered with these builds?

  •  

    Of course. Come with One year RTB (Return to Base) warranty.

  •  

    How much would it be to upgrade:

    32 gb ram or 64gb ram

    And 3080?

    Would 64gb ram work well for the 2nd system? Novice here

    •  

      We are out of 3080.

      Upgrade to 32GB RAM is +$150

  •  

    Got an email address? Looking at ordering one of these but it won't let me send a PM due to being a new user and want to change some of the specs.

  •  

    Just received my shipping notification from TNT Express. Expected delivery date: 17 November 2020

    •  

      WHAT! WOW

      That is certainly fast!

  •  

    Sounds like a great deal. The only concern for me is the wi-fi and bluetooth adaptor. I've had bad experiences with adaptors and would prefer a motherboard with built in bluetooth. Has anyone had any experience with the ASUS PCE-AX3000 Dual Band WiFi 6 Bluetooth 5.0 PCI-E Adapter?

  •  

    any 6800 video cards deals yet?

    •  

      not yet, once 6000 series of graphic card is up, We will definitly release some sort of deal with it.

  •  

    Virco, any chance people can have the option of an itx case and mobo. E.g nr200, sfx psu, b550/x570 strix mobo?

    •  

      We did consider about that, not in our currenty agendar, but nothing is impossible, right?

      •  

        +1 for the option of having a nr200 case
