    Hmm is this better than the XPS 11th Gen i7 with 3060 ti for $1882 with code LOVEKEANU ?

    https://www.dell.com/en-au/shop/dell-desktop-computers/new-x...

    16GB + 512GB M2 + 1TB + Killer WiFi 6 + BT + Keyboard / Mouse

    Dell warranty as well ?

    • +3

      I would personally be leaning towards the Dell for these reasons:

      • 8-core i7 vs 6-core 3600
      • Extra 1TB SATA 7200 RPM HDD
      • Included Windows 10 license
      • Better case
      • Better PSU
      • Most likely better thermals and a quieter system overall
      • Includes "1Y In-Home Hardware Service" and you would probably have an easier time making a case for your statutory rights after this expires than TechFast

      TechFast arguably has the better GPU (12GB vRAM vs Ray Tracing, choose one) and the non-proprietary parts will make upgrades and mods easier if that's important.

      • even thought Im usually team red, the 3060ti is much better then 6700 xt

        • not much better, 6700XT does outpace the Ti overall in standard rasterized games and FSR just got a release date coming out soon, but, the 3060 Ti has more value in the current market.

          • @sp1rit99: Not if you include DLSS, and I say this as a huge amd fanboy.

            You did say "standard" tho.

            • @Zorlin: I've got both a 3080 and 6700XT (from previous 6700xt techfast deal) and yeah DLSS is great, esp. playing games at 4K where you need every frame you can get but it just needs more game adoption still. That's where FSR will definitely shine.

      • Pretty much the only thing you got right was the CPU being better.

        • A 1tb HDD is fairly pointless. It'll likely be noisy and not store that much more than a standard SSD.
        • Windows 10 licenses are $5
        • The Dell case is absolutely atrocious. Techfast has way more airflow and will fit non-proprietary components.
        • Dell and Allied PSU would be comparable, both terrible. At least the Techfact one won't be using proprietary connectors and will have enough 12v rail output for an upgrade. Dell is more like 300 watts of actual GPU wattage, thus will not run a stock 3080 or better.
        • Dell is renown for noise and atrocious thermals. An i7 inside a Dell case will be thermal throttling guaranteed.
        • Techfast has better customer service than Dell.
        • The 3060 Ti is slightly weaker than the 6700 xt regarding raw performance, but DLSS makes it way more future proof. The 12GB vRAM is overkill and ray tracing is pointless.
        • Not going to go into a banal argument around each point since neither of us have both exact units on hand to provide a fair comparison. I'm just going by my own recent experience with a similar TechFast build and an older Dell XPS PC. Our views are really just opinion-based. Some people may value one aspect over the other so what's right for me may not be for you.

          @Michegianni implied that the Dell might have been a better buy. I just chimed in to express my support of that. I personally would not buy either at these prices.

          • @OSienna: Everything I said was objective, except for customer service. Your earlier comment was indeed very opinion based and due to your limited knowledge was mostly incorrect.

          • @OSienna: If you want to see the current dell offering teardown go check out the gamers Nexus review. It's pretty terrible.

      Dell typically like making their own Custom Motherboards, PSUs, and Graphics Cards. Whilst any generic graphics card will work down the road as they all use PCIe and (usually) standard 6 or 8 pin ATX connectors, the motherboards and PSUs can be incompatible with off the shelf consumer hardware (such as cases, normal power supplies, ATX Motherboards, etc). On top of that, 'Dell' graphics cards don't have the best reputation as they've been known to skimp on cooling to save costs.

      Just looking at the rear IO Panel and PSU in one of the pictures, I know for sure the PSU isn't standard ATX/SFX, and I'm pretty confident the Motherboard isn't standard ATX as well. Because of that, you need to weigh up whether you think you'll want to case swap, or upgrade/reuse hardware later on down the line.

      Disclaimer: I have bought a TechFast PC before, and I've also owned two XPS Laptops a few Dell OptiPlex - So I'm all sorts of bias.

    • Am I correct that the dell you posted is better than this one? https://www.dell.com/en-au/shop/gaming-and-games/new-alienwa...

    Unlike the 3070 deals, the price and availability of 6700xt aren't actually that bad. If able to build your own you'll get better components at a similar price, E.g.

    https://www.pccasegear.com/products/53534/powercolor-radeon-...

    The techfast 3070 deals are 'less bad' given current 3070 pricing.

    Although the big difference here is the 3 day build time. But please, if you buy this, upgrade the power supply!

    • "upgrade the power supply!"

      Yeah, I'm hesitant to buy anything lacking the 80+ sign, ideally from a reputable manufacturer.

      That said, the bundle itself is still solid even before considering the postage you'd end up paying on each part if you don't happen to live near the stores with everything you need in stock, which can quietly add up to another hundred or so dollars- or you pay a different premium by bundling through selected stores for cheaper delivery.

      Also saves the stress of assembling & testing it yourself, which I don't mind, it's kinda fun like Lego, but there's still a little anxiety about some parts just not working, having to troubleshoot to find out exactly what, then actually having to chase down a replacement.

  • Any likelihood of enough 3070Ti release stock for a deal this month? Just announced, releasing globally June 10

    • +1

      Good question, we're working on Ti strategy now.

      • Any Ti strategy updates? I notice there hasn't been a 3080Ti deal posted by you, just wondering if it's worth waiting for a 3070Ti deal or if there won't realistically be enough stock at a barely-reasonable price?

          Some good stuff coming this week.

    Oh man
    I regret selling my 5600x / 6700xt PC for $1890 (msrp, no price gauging)
    Could've sold it for more
    (I had to sell it to buy meself a car)

  • Aftershock pcs offering this for a better price

    • With a 6700XT? Can't find it, please link!

      • +3

        Can confirm here with these upgrades (base $1,100):

        • Gigabyte B550M +85.00
        • Ryzen 5 3600X +145.00
        • Sapphire Nitro+ RX 6700 XT +300.00
        • 16GB DDR4 3600Mhz +75.00

        TOTAL = $1,705 for what I think is a better system overall. Delivery is $45 if you don't want to pick up from St Kilda, VIC.

        • Exactly

        • Yeah i was looking at this for someone last week and recommended a system from there with the same few upgrades. Its an amazing deal im not sure about the ram brand though but from reviews it seemed like a reasonable budget ram. Actually i recommended one of the larger MB's otherwise the GPU will block nearly all the sata ports

    • No sorry, not enough supply for a deal price.
