    Good specs but TechFast was about $400 cheaper than this for what is essentially the same gaming PC (sure better CPU and higher end motherboard but also less ssd) so it ends up doing the same job. 3600 is plenty enough for now and 3070 won't be able to sweat it as much anyways.

    Regardless tho, with the global silicone shortage and especially GPU scalpers, it's an okay price for a pre-assembled.

    Surely someone will do a part picker to see if this is a good deal.

      Comparable techfast deal is this https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/600597 for $1988

      •  

        Techfast has Lance-V RGB ATX Case (Deepcool upgrade available +$89) - If you upgrade to the Deepcool case which is the case in the virco deal then the tech fast deal becomes 2077

        Not sure if techfast has CL22 ram as well but you may need a CL16 memory upgrade +$20 on the virco deal to match the techfast deal.

        250GB ssd vs nvme negligible difference..

        So techfast - $2077, Virco - $1994 for pretty much the same PC.

        Considering the 5600X is retailing for 550 this is a pretty good deal.

          For those not afraid of over-clocking, being JEDEC 3200 cl22 ram that'd be at only 1.2v - so if you run 1.35v like an XMP kit I'm sure it'd overclock well.

          If Crucial it'd be Micron Rev E, dunno about Kingson but either Micron Rev E, or Samsung D die, or Hynix CJR/DJR.

          To be a JEDEC 3200 kit it would have to be one of those newer ICs, and regardless or which it'll almost certainly hit 3600c16 or better as all of these ICs commonly go over 4000, so the ideal Ryzen 3600-3800MT/s window is pretty easily achievable.
          For example, my Crucial XMP 3000c15 Rev E kit does 3600c14 or 4000c16 on Intel and I've only been playing with it with this CPU/board combo for a week and haven't even found the limits yet.

          TL;DR - the 3200c16 "upgrade" wouldn't necessarily be any better IC quality wise, it'd just have heat spreaders on it. It could actually be worse seeing as XMP3200 is an anything goes junk bin, so it could be like old MFR or something awful someone had a crate of new old stock of.

          But yeah if the RAM OC thing is too much of a black box, by all means get one of the XMP kits for set and forget.

          Just wanted those who like to tinker to know the "shitty OEM sticks with no heatsink" can actually be surprisingly good.

      •  

        Oh yeah, I see. You are right. But also what I meant was the build with 3600 is better value than the build with 5600X. For gaming. Because they are both essentialy 3070s.

        If you are CPU bound yes this is and the one you mentioned are better.

        • -1 vote

          In what world? 5600x is a massive leap in general from 3600.

          •  

            @dsiritz: Yes it is, but the cpu is rarely bottlenecked on high res, high quality gaming. Maybe if you play 1080p or you have a cpu heavy specific task.

            Anyway, but what you will of course.

    One thing Virco has better than techfast are their upgrade options - not just the available drop downs, but the ability to customize further. Like messaging them for a case upgrade to the nzxt H510 for an extra 29$ only. Would need to upgrade MB if your upgraded case has usb-c.

    For a comparable build. Not bad, but tbh not amazing. And some of those parts in that build are imo very overpriced, like the motherboard and CPU.the SSD is pretty useless, and you're better off with a mid range air cooler than a 120mm AIO. So doesn't really feel cheaper than building yourself, but a still not a bad deal

    Deal is not as good, 5600x over priced and also 3070

    For the same Price wasn't the Dell one better? https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/600086

    That baby AIO would have to be the first thing people consider upgrading, and the RAM for those that don't want to worry about over-clocking.

    Techfast's deal doesn't say what the RAM is either (no CL rating mentioned, so could be JEDEC CL22 as well) and also has an itty bitty AIO.

    Is that a marketing thing?

    Wouldn't a Hyper 212 clone have been cheaper and more reliable for them to worry about warranty wise? Plus by having any "water cooling" on there as the default option, wouldn't it make upselling people to a 240/280/360 more difficult?

    • +1 vote

      Apparently it has to do with shipping, air coolers get damaged during transport, AIO's do not.

    •  

      techfast is 3200 CL16,

      also shipping an aircooler is asking for trouble hence why they go with the easy and popular AIOs even if they are not the best at cooling. 120mm AIO is heavily recommend to upgrade but they claim better than the stock 5600x wraith stealth.

    I got this last time it was on deal. Awesome computer and Virco are friendly and helpful.
    I upgraded the SSD, ram, PSU, mobo (to a wifi one) and added an HDD.

    Even Virco themselves said TechFast 3070 Arse deal was an excellent deal that they weren't able to match/beat.

        I'm saying this as a fact; I've contacted Luis because I genuinely wanted to get the system from him, considering he's local so RBT is easier, but he stated that he could not match / beat the deal as they don't have enough stock and that TechFast deal is a great deal.

    Ive had an annoying experience with virco- they were very helpful till I paid. Received my comp in very quickly but the front panel is damaged. 3 weeks of emails, calls and messages to the reps with no reply. When someone does answer the phone they promise a call back but doesn't happen. Very frustrating.

      There was also feedback of Virco offering an "upgrade" to a lower spec'd part… you have to be slightly computer literal to not fall for this.

    From Vicro Website on the PC listing.

    "We are experimenting with a new way of selling online. While all of our components of the system are available in-stock, we have discovered that quite a few customers prefer the way that our competitor's selling model: "cheaper" rather than "better quality" or waiting for the build time or exactly what component it would be using.
    for this system V547a (the system start with the letter V, V for….?…), it would be our first system that we collected the order first, and then we see what components are out there which are cheaper, so we can order and build the machine. Therefore, the build may take a while, but the price would be sharp."

    They don't have stock lol, its a pre-order. Don't bother buying, wait a bit at least until march for the Chinese New year to pass at least then I think we should get more shit.

    •  

      I can't believe it took 12hrs for someone to point this out. Techfast can have extremely open ended delivery times - you're getting the same thing here.

    have a look at the ram 3200 but cl 22, that would really slow the CPU in games the standard is cl 16.

  •  

    Preferring cheaper components to quality ones….. is that actually what people prefer?

    Website must be joking, cos if that’s really the case then people might as well go watch the Verge PC build for advice.

    •  

      Taking a jab at techfast lol

      Many people on ozbargain actually do, just look at techfast deal history for reference

      •  

        but TechFast actually got stock in hand for the ARSECRUSHER deal.

        •  

          That's like 1 deal they do apparently have stock in hand

    •  

      That's basically my problem with all these pre-built's, cheap parts. I don't mind paying another $500 for decent cooling, ram, nmve and psu and a 3 fan GPU.

  •  

    Page not found. Its OOS.

    •  

      OOS & Page not Found are totally two different thing. My gut feel, Virco pulled this deal out for whatever reason. Normally if it's OOS, it will be labelled as Sold Out.
