          oKAY okay
          closest i found was

          https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/608016

          its only $500 difference, and we know that 0 has no value
          so we remove 2 of the Zeros, we're left with just 5.
          5 Difference.

          yeah >:(

            @Kundi: Closest you could get is a $170 refurb and a retrofit 3060 for like ~$500 lol

            You have no warranty then though

    This ain't a bargain brah.

    •  

      Gut feel is refurbs for $700 isn't right, but honestly, in today's market, I'm not too sure! $/FLOP is obviously going to be poor, but if you literally need to save every penny possible, but still need a half-capable computer (graphic design student without the parent safety net maybe?), this could be a solid option.

      The 12mo warranty is good too - would have expected 3mo.

        Pricing was difficult indeed, had a look at similar competition (hardly much at this price), Techfast for example and found that a more cleaner looking build with better specs was good enough!

      Pop the top off the Dell case, buy a ten dollar PCIe extender cable and you can run any full sized GPU as long as it doesn't require the power supply and don't mind an ugly mess of a gaming rig.
      On the plus side find a second hand 750 GTX for fifty bucks and you're up and running for $250.

      •  

        ‘As long it as it doesn’t require the power supply’ well you are not going to run anything decent

          You can definitely build a $250 entry level gaming rig capable of Overwatch, Rocket League etc.

          •  

            @freefall101: If you can get an xsx, and the sff pc at $180, and you want two devices, and you want to pay ~$200 more, and you don't need to do anything graphically intensive, and you want to play console games.

            Then sure, that's a better gaming option! =)

            • +1 vote

              @incipient: Console games doesn't make much difference anymore, buy the xbox game pass and play the same games. And what "graphically intensive" things does the average user do that's not gaming?

              But if you have to have a single device, spend your days needing GPU acceleration for rendering, can stand playing 5 year old games at 1080p, are happy to pay for an extra hard drive,, can't wait until computers are a half reasonable price, don't keep an eye out for cheap gaming rigs on gumtree, don't want to spend a couple of hundred more on a GPU that can mine and just make your cash back that way, don't have room for two devices (even though a sff and an xbox probably takes up less space)… then yes, this is the perfect system for that human and I hope they enjoy this deal.

              For everyone else, buy an xbox and a sff machine.

        If we're going to swap platforms completely, a Quest 2 offers a much bigger "wow factor" than either of the new consoles.

    There are really no pre-built options at this sort of price point at the moment. Appreciate the innovation, even if it wouldn't be my choice (if willing to do more work, used 4gb rx580 are a better choice and building a PC isn't too hard)

    • +2 votes

      The 580 is about $400 on ebay by the looks of it? and fairly comparable to a 1060, but it is a year newer. Feels like a bit of a side-grade. I'd personally take the 1 year warranty if it's a choice between "MYO 580 build" vs "prebuilt 1060+warranty".

      https://www.notebookcheck.net/Radeon-RX-580-vs-GeForce-GTX-1...

      •  

        Wow, I'm a week out of date on pricing, the 4gb were 300ish or less very recently!

        The 1060 3gb is a slower card than the 6gb, even ignoring the ram, where for the rx580 the only difference is ram. I had the 580 until very recently and for 1080p gaming it was still solid (although probably not for cyberpunk).

        This deal is credible given the alternatives. But there aren't any great options for buyers of lower-end gaming PCs today. Maybe we'll see rtx3050 or amd 6600 soon but it seems supply will still be constrained.

    The cpu costs $50 on ebay while you can get entire SFF systems (i5+mobo+case+ssd+psu+8gb ram) for around $200.

    • +4 votes

      $200 for the SFF PC, and you're limited to a low profile 1050Ti for the GPU, which is $385 new, so…$250ish 2nd hand? $450 for a bit of DIY with a noticeably slower GPU and <12mo warranty. Yep, maybe worth it, maybe not - a different option really.

      As above, the SSD/PSU/Case are new (as expected).

        My original comment also included that the PC didn't specify which parts were refurbs or which parts were. The OP obviously read my comment and updated theirs. I mean the 1060gb 3gb variant is 15% slower than the 1060 6Gb version and this only comes with 8gb ram their isn't any upgrade path in the future since you would get bottlenecked with the high end cards. This PC is for the really desperate.

        • +1 vote

          For sure, only if you really need a computer, and are on a serious budget! Brand new parts with a cheap gpu would be a better option if you had the money. The GPU shortage I'm hoping clears up when eth goes proof of stake (early next year).

    The CPU is 7 generations/years old. DDR3? meh, also seems pricey for refurbed RAM when you mess with the 8/16/32 options. PSU seems appropriate. Anything that matters is refurbed. I get the hard times argument, but $699 for a computer that's lived past it's obsolescence is too much.

    ALSO, $140 price jump from 240Gb to the 1Tb refurbed SSD, why not just buy a brand new one for less than the price jump from a trusted brand ( like https://www.mwave.com.au/product/crucial-mx500-1tb-25-3d-nan... )?

    •  

      What? The ssd is new, not a refurb. Gigabyte is fine as a brand, at least some of their SSDs are.

      lived past it's obsolescence

      It's a perfectly solid 1080p gaming pc. Nothing obsolete about that! The low end section has been completely abandoned recently due to the chip shortage.

      If you're negging this. Show something better. While refurb does make it hard to compare, the 12mo warranty really sweetens it up!

      •  

        Sorry, I did indeed think it was refurb. The math still isn't their in favor of FuzeTechAu for the price jump.

        It's cheaper to get the default 240Gb drive from FuzeTechAu then (not than) buy the Gigabyte 1Tb drive from umart for 129+7 shipping (https://www.umart.com.au/Gigabyte-1TB-2-5in-SATA-SSD-GP-GSTF...) than it is to just buy the 1Tb drive…

        You will also then have more storage for less if you wanted the 1Tb SSD in the first place.

        Is that "Something better".?

        • -2 votes

          So you're negging just because some of the upgrades are a bit more expensive? The base offering is still solid. The rest of the criticisms are still not entirely valid.

            @incipient: There are 2 comments mate, don't just go off my last one.

            Sorry you want me to write a 4000 word thesis on why in my opinion it is not a good deal.

            To answer your first question, yes I am (plus the other reasons I've given), this is OzBargain. Particularly because it's cheaper to do it the way I mentioned if you want the 1Tb.

            No it is not a solid base offer, It is sub par.

            Why do you care so much about a neg? You seem pretty critical on anyone that leaves one.

              @BillyZ93: Link something better for ~$700? Otherwise its in violation for the voting guidelines. The current market is crap and as much as I hate saying this, its one of the only good options for $700, although its not the best value.

              • +1 vote

                @Reddy Cool: Sure, I have an issue with the retailer, for one their descriptions are inaccurate (https://imgur.com/a/XZin0J3). The spelling error is also quite bad considering Tb is accurate unit. So if I buy the 1000Gb drive are they going to give me a drive that is 125GB drive as described?

                I would argue i did mention it was cheaper elsewhere when i said it was cheaper to get the 240GB default and a separate 1TB drive of the same brand (and probably model) than it was to choose the 1Tb option from FuseTechAu.

                Let a mod decide, if my neg is not justified then so be it, dems the rules.

        I can get within about $150 using new parts with warranty and a 1050ti which, with the better CPU and 16gb of RAM would be better value. Honestly wouldn't give my mum a computer this old and all she does is gmail and spider solitare.

    Its a fair call to get some refurb parts to lower down the cost
    But a i5 4590 is just too old
    From Intel website its a 7 years old CPU (4 cores 4 threads)

    Even when building a gaming PC
    performance is not purely relies on GPU (Graphic card)
    CPU, Ram and Harddrive speed does matter

    For example, while the spec doesn't show which SSD model it provides
    it is quite likely that it will not be a NVMe M.2 SSD (which read/write speed are at least 3 times faster than SATA SSD)

    Heres the CPU product info:

      I was using the first generation Intel i7 920 until early last year and it ran W10 fine, with 60fps on a few games on high settings using GTX1060, including the supposedly laggy Nier Automata.
      DOOM2016 with high settings was getting 40-60FPS.

      Had youtube on second monitor and other apps running at same time. The CPU is fine. You just wont be able to open 100+browser tabs and expect fast loading, or have 1-games running + youtube vs 2-games + 4 videos open or whatever your use might be.

      CPU impact on gaming is VERY low, unless you're frequently dying and the game engine has to reload a lot.

      •  

        Not true, it depends on what game you are playing
        Both CPU and GPU plays their role when running any programs (including games)
        Some games requires on CPU processing power which can be a bottleneck even you have a decent Graphic card

        • +1 vote

          One of the last games I played on it was Call of Duty Infinite Warfare and CoD WWII which both need multi-core minimum spec. Both were, sadly, around 40-50FPS max on high settings but it still ran fine with JUST browser the background BUT the CPU was running 100% on all cores and got very hot.

          I could still play the games but I didn't like how the GPU was getting bottle necked by a maxed out CPU, and that some scenes with explosions were dropping FPS to 15-30. This was the breaking point for the i7 920 and made me upgrade the whole system.

          I can imagine the i5-4590 will do a lot better. I don't know if there are other games which were CPU intensive, but I think these are good examples as mainstream games.

      $200 for the sff pc, $250+ (second hand) for the 1050 ti low profile, and it performs noticeably worse than the 1060, and you have to do it yourself, and 3mo/no warranty. It's honestly a toss up.
