Updates
- All 1660 Super systems in build to ship this week
- AMD and Intel 3060 systems in build and shipping this week
- 6700 XT systems to start shipping after these, hopefully starting this week
- Small numbers of 3080s continuing to trickle in - all earlier [Pre-Order] systems have been completed so we're firmly into OzB orders now. Waiting on word from Galax for our bulk shipment to cover all Galax card orders, but just this week we've seen some Galax cards hit distributors for the first time so it's getting closer. In the meantime as other brands come in Galax customers will be contacted as other brand cards come to hand, in date order. MSI upgrade customers have started to get their orders filled in date order.

Cheers
Luke

    • ordered an evga 3070 (via ple) on the 1st of this month, got an eta for the 24th at $1079 ($1100 with shipping incl.).
      $1599 is bloody stupid for a 3070.

      At my price the pc you built comes to $1898.

      I don't think this is a bargain lol, its just an alright deal with lots of components that lets be honest no-one but a prebuilt store would use.

      • +2 votes

        Genuinely interested to see if you get it on that date.

        • Not only that but there were gigabyte cards available at scorptec last week for breakneck prices (before this post holy crap haha) of $1300 (pickup available). There are alot of 3070's flying about now and people are realising that these cards aren't rare due to price:performance + supply.

          Again I don't think this is a bad deal, it's just round about the same money as if I or any other person built it themselves if they waited for 3 weeks or so for the gpu. That time margin almost feels reasonable in this day and age, especially if you're not buying a brand new pc and just waiting for a 3000 series gpu to plug and play in your ivy lake system (I know you brothers are out there).

          P.S. don't actually know if I can edit this later but i'll post a reply when I do get it!

          • @Manly Black: Looking at the number of high-end Ampere cards being used in the steam surveys, the supply has been rather robust and sold a lot more than Turing was.

            The problem is that a gamer only wants a single card, and then their demand is satiated. Miners want as many cards as they can get. They don't just want one $1,300 3070, they want all of them.

            Thus, while crypto is at stupid prices, GPU prices will be too. If Ethereum crashes/becomes less profitable, it seems probably that GPU prices will quickly correct themselves.

            • @iseeyou1312: Oh yeah I fully understand why the prices are so high, but the $1600 they had listed is just way too much it skews the pricing.
              A 3070 is pretty easy to get compared to it's cheaper and more expensive 3000 series cousins and the prices even at stores that have raised them pretty damn high already are a FEW HUNDO less that the figure luke used (scuse the caps).

              Just doesn't make sense from a proper bargain pov.

              • @Manly Black: Yeah, well the 3060 ti is a cut down 3070 and the 3080 is the same for the 3090, so there's really no reason to cut down dies when the 3090 and 3070 instantly sell out way above MSRP.

                I agree that $1,600 is a ridiculous price and anyone willing to preorder or shop around a bit will likely get one much cheaper before this Techfast system ships, but it seems to be the cheapest priced card that's currently in stock, aka, the price at which not even miners will touch it haha.

            • @iseeyou1312: Scalpers are still a worse problem than miners and I'm yet to see any evidence or numbers to show otherwise.

              • @Zorlin: The price of cards matches their hash rates, not MSRP or gaming performance. 6800 xt and 6900 xt are within ~$200 of each other because the 6900 xt hash rate is abysmal, despite a ~50% higher MSRP. The 3060 ti and 3070 are basically the same price with the same hash rate, there's a massive gap between them and the 3080 which matches the hash rate jump and once again a massive jump between the 3080 and 3090.

                You also have cards like the 5700 xt selling for ridiculous prices because the hash rate is so good, despite having the same MSRP as the 2060 super.

                Regardless of how they're being sold, whether through retailers or scalpers, it's miners who are dictating the prices within this market.

                • @iseeyou1312: I'm well aware of the pricing, but the bulk of volume is driven by scalpers.

                  Then again they were talking about price, not availability, so it's possible I should stfu.

        • I've bought the evga 3070 xc3 ultra from PLE $949 (before it was $999) with free shipping - their ETA is accurate, and I got mine 4 days before the ETA despite the ETA actually being their shipping estimate date.

          3070 supply seems the most solid out of all of them.

          so yes 1599 is stupid

      Accidently listed government pricing….

    • at the rate we're going - We'll probably hit that price soon enough

      Staring at RX 570's on facebook and people wanting $550 for them lol.

      • I sold my 1660ti when i upgraded to 3070. If I had waited and sold it now, I'd made a profit on my used gpu of several years. bonkers.

        • I sold my 1660ti 6 months ago for $370. Saw one on marketplace for 600 yesterday haha

        • I bought my 1660 super for $320 (technically got it for free after a paypal refund), sold it a year later for $350 and couldn't believe anyone would pay that much for a second hand card. If only I had known…

  • Can play MS Flight Sim in 4k?

    • My 2080 Super with i7-9700K (bought 1 year ago from TF) plays MSFS2020 well but not at 4K. The patches have mostly improved the smoothness and frame rate. But I’ve still tweaked my chip, gfx card and memory to maximise the experience.

      However, heavy CPU/GPU scenes like Manhattan will bring even a full laden 3090 system running 4K at Ultra settings to its knees. VR is even worse. The game is a resource killer.

      • Yeah it's indeed a resource killer! I'm not interested at playing at 4k would be nice but 1080 or 1440 is fine for me an hoping the 3070 will handle that fine at higher settings

        • I’m running at 3440x1440 and it’s fine with 2080S. So this system will be more than ok at your resolution.

          • @JoeyJoeJoe: I run it on a similar system but with 5600x cpu, pretty well maxed out at 1440p and it chugs sometimes but is generally quite smooth and very playable.

  • Good deal but I think the Matx board kills it for me an atx board would be sweet for upgradability etc in that atx case.

    If you can do that for a similar price would be awsum. Also I’m guessing this is a 3 fan 3070 for that price?

    • price is too cheap for it to be 3-fan model

    • -1 vote

      GPU will likely be 2-fan - from deal post.

      Intel boards have been and are still really hard to get in volume, particularly with the generational changeover from X4XX to X5XX happening at the moment. Has to be MATX for the time being.

    • It's in the OP, likely 2 fan.

      You can pay for an upgrade on the MB - $159 although it's to a Z490 matx/atx (either or), so might need to talk to them. Huge number of boards in that price range though ($160 more than the MSI one).

      I'm not sure how much more upgradeability an ATX board delivers though. It's not hard to switch out the 2x8GB DIMMS for 2x16 or 2x32 at some point in the future if needed, there's not a whole lot of use for things like PCI-e x4 slots. It'd be nice to have a second nvme slot maybe.

      Best move would be to go with z490 for more fancy options, but then if you're worried about futureproofing maybe look to current gen stuff with gen4 nvmes and PCIe 4.0 (although right now Intel's 11th gen isn't great)

  • Hi Luke,
    Any plans for 11400?

    • +1 vote

      10400 is still available in better supply and cheaper - no super-compelling reason to offer 11th gen as yet, but yep it will come at some stage.

      • It's tricky for you to sell the 11400 as it really needs to be on a board without CPU power constraints to reach its excellent potential, which is probably all too complicated for the average prebuilt customer to understand or appreciate.

  • OEM should be getting Ryzen 5800 and 5900 soon. Should be a good option with lower wattage

  •  

    Are these already built? When's the estimated shipping date?

    • Thanks - I normally include that but forgot. Updated the deal post.

    • Haha no, not already built. Shipping is generally 14 BUSINESS days once your order is placed, however lots of stories on here of it taking much, much longer.

      Mine was delivered almost exactly on 14 days (though this was a year ago and WA regional).

  • Hey Luke, I had an upgrade question about my order TF4612542631 which I emailed in. Would you be able to have a look at it for me?

  • Hey Luke still waiting on an order from 19th of. March TF4612562631

  • I will wait till 3080 based system is this price

  • dumb question incoming. Is there no 3080s left in Australia or something. I haven't seen any deals on them in ages from anyone (I'm also possibly blind)

    • Check pcbyte's website. There is some in everywhere, but pricing is astronomical. Cheapest 3080 build is going for 4k. But the time that we can buy gpu normally is getting closer as mining is getting tougher. I think everyone is waiting for a deal since its Ozbargain.

    • You can only get them on eBay for 2500, there is a huge line of pre orders still waiting on theirs since last year

    • 3080 orders from january are still up in the air

    • got mine just today, ordered in November. They're trickling in this is my 3rd 3080.

    • 3080 is made from a cut down 3090 die, and there's no reason for Nvidia to cut down the 3090 when it's in such high demand from miners, they'd just hurt their bottom line.

      The very few 3080s that are made will be from the few dies that didn't clock high enough to become a 3090.

  • Need to upgrade to at least 500GB SSD and add Windows 10 home….Then price is …

  • Can someone please tell me why you'd want something like this with no PCIE 4.0 support? If were starting to see small losses already, doesn't that mean that if you were to have this and upgrade your GPU a bit down the line that you'd have significantly less performance

    • 4.0 offers 0 improved gaming performance and will be like that for years, as most ppl will buy this for gaming, pcie 4.0 is meaningless and you shouldn't be paying extra to get it

  • I believe i7 can run ram at 2933 on B460.

  • Rx5800 deal with 3070 upgrade or this?

  • 5600 url in post is wrong. Should be: https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/615611

  • I see faster ram is available so does that mean a Z series board upgrade is required?

    • I hope not, as per Richardc above you should be able to run it at 2933mhz with an i7 and b460 motherboard

  • Unless you really need the 8 cores today (you probably don't) I prefer the 5600x version. Less limiting motherboard with longer upgrade path, and great for gaming (although for 1440p or higher the 5600x is overkill today)

  • Luv et

  • Thanks Luke for the 3080 update lets hope you can secure us some in the not too distant future. Kinda wish i dropped the extra cash these days for an MSI just for the prospect of getting it a bit sooner. Well if it gets down to me id gladly get a non galax card but im probably a quite a few people down the queue because i didnt order till the evening of release day.

  • This or the 5600X version?

  • hey Luke, do you guys offer Afterpay/ZipPay payment options?
    Thanks

  • Hey Luke, the link for the R5-5600X goes to the R5-3600.

  • Any chance of deal coming back like the arsecrusher one? Just had my pc stolen from my house

    • Yikes, sorry to hear! But not possible at the moment - prices have changed hugely since then. It would take a large stabilisation in the form of more stock being available than in demand to see prices drop in the short to medium term.

  • Hey Luke,

    Saw a few people asking about their orders. Mine is order TF4612832631 I’m in the area today for pick up so was hoping and have my fingers crossed that it is ready today so I don’t need to make another trip down this week. Would this at all be possible?

    Cheers and thanks for the amazing work you’re doing!

    • I'll have the team look into this for you, please expect a follow up regarding the pick-up thanks.

      ~ Christian

  • Hi Luke,

    My order is TF4626842631. Before purchasing I enquired with sales regarding an ETA and was told that if I placed the order that day it would be around the 14th of May so I placed the order as it is part of a Birthday gift that is coming up. At the time of order I paid via direct deposit and sent the confirmation and Callum replied that it's enough information to proceed with your order.
    I emailed last Friday to check on the status as the order has not moved from pending since its placement. I emailed again on Tuesday the 11th of May. As yet there has been no response to my previous emails. Your phone system is not being manned so this is probably the only way I can get an answer.

    Can you please let me know when my order will ship?

    Thanks,

    Ken
