[Backorder] Gaming PC: R5-3600, RTX 3070, 16GB 3200MHz RAM, 240GB SSD, Giga B450 DS3H MB, 650 Bronze PSU: $1999 + Post @TechFast

870
3600-3070-MAY

Hi all,

In part by showing the community response to the pricing of the previous deal to suppliers (which was priced according to what they offered us), we beat them down further to get this R5-3600 | RTX 3070 PC price down to $1999. The previous $1888 price for the CPU/GPU combo is just not achievable because prices have absolutely risen and that will feed into retail sooner rather than later.

Supply is super limited at this price.

We are contacting those who purchased the previous deal to get them the better pricing too.

AMD Ryzen 5 3600 | RTX 3070 8GB Gaming PC: $1999 after 3600-3070-MAY

  • AMD Ryzen 5 3600 6c/12t processor
  • RTX 3070 8GB GPU (likely Galax; MSI/Gigabyte upgrades available)
  • Gigabyte B450 DS3H motherboard (various B550 and X570 upgrades available - B550 WiFi is MSI Pro VDH, X570 is X570-A Pro, X570 WiFi is Giga Aorus Elite WiFi)
  • 16GB 3200MHz (2x8; brand/model may vary)
  • 240GB 2.5" SSD OS drive (for those bringing their own storage; higher capacity needed for gaming; upgradeable on website)
  • 650W 80 Plus Bronze PSU (Gigabyte being used)
  • Lance-V RGB ATX 3-intake fan case

Still working on Intel variant pricing, and 3060 deals for this month.

Cheers
Luke

      That Scorptec pricing of $1399 is now $1499

      https://www.scorptec.com.au/product/graphics-cards/nvidia/85...

      Guess they figured they are selling the 3070 too cheap

      •  

        I used $1399 as a low-average because they have some lower than $1399 too. But overall I would be really really surprised if they stay that low (or come back into stock on the lower end models).

      •  

        I can't believe a 3070 is going for $1499 when the 3080 has an RRP of $1150.

        It's truly crazy how over priced the market is right now.

            @Phoenixzeus: Nothing wrong with Galax, my 2070 super boosts to over 2.1ghz

            •  

              @bumluffa: Its funny how such a small difference with zero impact on gaming affects buyers. I splurged with a suprim 3080 but the extra cost is at my peril!

          •  

            @Phoenixzeus: My old fav was Zotac, my new fav is Galax. Had nothing but good experience with them unlike some of the bigger brands.

  •  

    Awesome, great response Luke!

  •  

    Any way we can pay to upgrade the processor to R7?

    •  

      3700X or 5800X? 5800X would require a higher tier motherboard selected to handle the power, probably recommended for 3700X too. I'll see if I can add what you're after.

      •  

        Cheers Luke

  •  

    Which MSI 3070 is the upgrade for? Gaming 3 trio or the Ventus?

    • +2 votes

      Gaming X Trio is most likely. My understanding is brands are focusing on the higher tier GPUs in the shortage to increase their revenue overall, which is contributing to pricing increases builders like us can offer.

  •  

    Hi, if we order today, when will it be shipped? Thanks

    •  

      Our current estimate window is 14-21 business days - we do our best to be on or inside that but a higher % have been shipped over 14 business days recently so 14-21 is more accurate as of today.

    Can mine Crypto with this?

    •  

      Absolutely

      Had mine going for a couple of months, earned about 15% of the PC's value so far!

      • +3 votes

        Factoring in electricity costs, how much did you make back?

        •  

          Currently about $6/day in BTC via NiceHash, less $1 in electricity

          Since I would already be paying the same amount for heating ANYWAY, then technically it's not costing me anything

        •  

          Not that guy, but I have mine from the arsecrusher deal mining at basically all times (I rarely actually game with it).

          Mine earns approx $7-8/day, the whole rig consumes about 160W when otherwise idle (monitors off), or ~4kWh/day. For me that's about 60c/day (solar with very low feed in tariff, so low opportunity cost during the day). You can do your own maths from there.

          •  

            @Alzori: That's fairly good and a whole lot better then what I imagined. With crypto, how are miners dealing with the ATO? Do you put down your earnings and expenses as part of your income?

            •  

              @Phlume: No idea, since I'm pretty new to this. Very thorough ID checks with the exchange that I'm using to get AUD (coinjar), so maybe they report it?

            • +2 votes

              @Phlume: If you look on ATO website the cost base for hobby mining is zero (cannot include running costs or equipment) and minining rewards (BTC) are treated as CGT assets subject to the usual rules. Personal use exemption does not apply unless you are using you mining reward to acquire good or services pretty much straight away, not doing HODL. But as usual, should get your own professional advice.
              https://community.ato.gov.au/t5/Cryptocurrency/Cost-Base-for...

              •  

                @blues11: For accurate CGT reporting there is a need to keep track of daily price of the crypto obtained through mining, for the days that crypto was acquired. So there is some admin to do, which can be automated with some programming. So it's not a set and forget kind of task with mining.

                I am not sure if everyone is following ATO requirements.

      •  

        same PC?
        what do you mine?
        I have absolutely no knowledge about mining, however, I am not bad at trading :)

        •  

          Mine was a Techfast deal from March which I've upgraded bits (which makes no difference to mining, it's exclusively using the GPU).

          Just using NiceHash for ease of use, which has a guaranteed payrate in BTC for mining whatever hash is the most profitable on their 'pools' - currently that's mining Ethereum. Once I accumulate enough BTC then I can transfer to my own wallet (as an investment) and/or to an exchange to payout in AUD (for expenses).

          •  

            @Switchblade88: How do you report your earnings with tax? I want to get started with mining but I'm afraid of screwing things up with the ATO

          •  

            @Switchblade88: Thank you so much,

            May i know what GPU you have? and maybe what GPU is the best if you have some information?

              @shahrah: I've got a 3070. For mining, it basically boils down to 'if it's more expensive, it mines more and therefore make you more money.'

              Both you and @Dealzallday are probably best off going to https://www.nicehash.com/profitability-calculator to have a squiz at profitability calcs with your current hardware etc, unfortunately there's not much more I can help with as I've not got a whole lot more experience to share!

        • +1 vote

          Gaming X Trio, Gaming X Z Trio and very occasional Suprim. MSI are definitely focusing manufacturing on their higher end models. Haven't seen a Ventus since around launch.

          •  

            @luketechfast: awesome, the brother in law (ordered the PC for me) was offered a different MSI card and we said we would wait for a multi-fan one. Can't wait to finally get it!!

  •  

    ASIC miners are now available for mining ETH. Raising difficulty and dropping profits using graphics cards. Hopefully prices come back towards MSRP in the near future… Should be patient, don't pay scalper pricing for these 3070s

    • +1 vote

      From what I'd seen the ASICs didn't have any better hashrate/watt than a 30-series card. That means that a 3070 would not only provide an equivalent income per watt, it also has use for gaming AND a resale value once the mining aspect becomes unprofitable.

      You have zero resale value on an ASIC, and certainly can't game with it!

      •  

        ASICs coming out offer significant hashrate/watt bump over 30-series (3000hash rate in one ASIC vs 32 3080s)
        https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=us5gyJVuTf8

        Thus, big mining companies likely will buy ASICs rather than graphics cards… obviously not the odd gamer who wants to mine overnight… not to mention profitability is dropping anyway.

  •  

    Can we spec any other 3070? Just asking, this is still an extremely great deal Luke. GG

    •  

      Do you mean different card brands or CPU pairing? There are Giga and MSI options with a necessary upgrade price due to higher cost but those are the only available. No supply on Asus or other brands.

    I'm not sure how this gets so many upvotes yet the $1549 RTX 3080 got negged. It works out to be almost the same price as this with a 1TB SSD if you built an identical system with that GPU. Plus there wouldn't be a 3-4 week wait for a PC built with parts nobody purchased.

    •  

      That's because that deal was for an RTX 3070 not 3080.

      •  

        You're right, that was a typo. My sentiment still stands though. You could build a better PC in far less time for marginally more money.

    Amazing price for a RTX 3070 build (now builds are referred to by GPU not CPU) and well done on the specs.

  •  

    Hey Luke, any deals in the $1000-$1500 range coming up in the next few weeks?

    •  

      Supply down there still stinks unfortunately. News was that NVIDIA were reviving some older 10 series models in the shortage but we haven't really seen any come through. No real word on desktop 3050 Ti yet either.

  •  

    Any chance of a 6700 XT system anytime soon? If so, what sort of pricing are we looking at?

      We're looking into supply atm. Pricing will depend on what they tell us!

    Hey Luke/everyone, looking at grabbing this with some upgrades and getting the following - the MSI Mag Forge Case, the Gigabyte B550M Motherboard, 32GB RAM, swapping the 240gb Solid State for a 1TB One (NVMe?)

    Does this make sense? The motherboard says it doesn't come with on-board wifi but it also can't fit a PCIE? I can't add on-board Wifi? Should I swap this to the AMD one? And lastly, what's the difference between the brands of 3070, and the power supply/processor cooling - necessary?

    Thanks in advance!

    • +3 votes

      The GPU is very large and the MB doesn't have a PCIE slot above the GPU, so a PCIE card won't fit. There isn't an non-WiFi MATX board offered here that will fit a PCIE card, so you would either need to choose the B550 WiFi (MSI Pro-VDH WiFi) or one of the X570 boards, which either has room for a PCIE card or has on board wifi.

      GPU brand is as much a personal preference as anything, my own view is that Galax do a great card and cooling solution in their higher end cards, but people have brand preference and we are getting Galax, MSI and Giga in, the latter two of which have a higher cost to us. Processor cooling - the RTX 3070 does make the processor sweat so you will get better temperatures with a) a liquid cooler over the stock cooler and b) one of the upgrade motherboards which have better VRMs to help CPU temps.

      The Bronze PSU is a good unit and will perform fine in terms of quality and required power draw; the Gold is more efficient so will result in lower power costs over the journey. Despite having a higher maximum wattage (750), the PC will still only draw what it needs to which is more than covered by the 650W.

      •  

        Thank you so much for the detailed reply!
        So, would the following setup be fine? And will I need any additional cooling with it?

        Processor: AMD Ryzen 7 3700X Processor [Motherboard Upgrade Recommended]
        Case: MSI MAG Forge 100R [ATX] Case
        Motherboard: AMD X570 WiFi [ATX] Motherboard
        Graphics Card: MSI RTX 3070 8GB Graphics Card
        Memory: 32GB [3200MHz] DDR4 RAM (2 x 16GB Modules)
        Operating System SSD: 1TB M.2 [NVMe] Solid State Drive
        Additional Storage SSD: None
        Hard Disk Drive: None
        Power Supply: 750W 80 Plus Gold Power Supply
        Processor Cooling: Standard Fan CPU Cooler

        • +1 vote

          Really nice config - you'll get the Gigabute Aorus X570 WiFi motherboard. The Wraith Prism cooler on the 3700X is solid - really only a 240mm will provide better cooling over that. It's not strictly necessary unless you're pushing your CPU constantly but will result in cooler overall system temperatures over the journey.

  •  

    rtx 3060 build again?

    Is the GPU an non LHR version? thanks.

      Not that we're aware of. We haven't received any information regarding supply of those cards either way.

      Hi, new systems are currently estimated in the 14-20 business day range.

  •  

    Hi Luke,

    May you provide another update for 3080?

    (for example, something like: % of remaining Galax order? Where is people's order in the queue?)

  •  

    Will this be able to play Cyberpunk on a 75” 4K tv?

    For the same price, are there anything better? I am a complete noob at all of this.

    •  

      Yes it should be up to the task. If you just look around you'll find plenty of reviews and footage of the 3070 running the game at 4k. A few things to note:

      • I'd upgrade a few of the components (i'd get one of the slightly more expensive GPU brands, better motherboard, upgrade the power supply). Doing that means upgrading in the future will be better. I'd also recommend getting an nvme ssd

      • Your TV will probably only allow 4k 60fps over HDMI, unless it hdmi 2.1. I know the MSI rtx 3070 does hdmi 2.1 out, but a lot of older tvs don't support this so basically, the highest frame rate you'll get is 4k 60fps. Which is fine, as anything more may be asking too much for this setup anyway.

      • For the same price? Not likely. There'll be comparable builds on here for a similar price, but you'll find a lot of retailers selling an MSI rtx 3070 for about $1,800+ on its own at the moment. So basically, you're getting a free computer with a purchase of a GPU in builds like this.
