3600-3070Ti-EOFYS

Hi all,
Bringing back the 1995 flavour with a new, much lower price on an RTX 3070 Ti system for our EOFY sales. We've beaten up suppliers on 3070 Ti card pricing, and brought the storage to 240GB for those bringing their own, plus the motherboard to the very capable Gigabyte DS3H, with all the previous options available as upgrades.

AMD Ryzen 5 3600 | RTX 3070 Ti Gaming PC: $1995 after 3600-3070Ti-EOFYS

  • Ryzen 5 3600 6c/12t processor
  • RTX 3070 Ti 8GB [brand/model may vary]
  • Gigabyte B550M DS3H motherboard (more upgrade options added)
  • 16GB 3200MHz RAM (2x8; brand/model may vary)
  • 240GB 2.5" SSD
  • 750W 80 Plus Gold PSU (Gigabyte and MSI in use)
  • Lance-V RGB ATX case
  • Cooling: AMD Wraith Stealth as default; minimum 120mm liquid cooler upgrade or self-installation of another cooler recommended for gaming purposes, especially at high resolutions.

Cheers
Luke

      Can anyone recommend any of the upgrades? E.g. RAM or cooler upgrades worth it for gaming?

      • +2 votes

        Ryzen benifiets from faster ram. For 4k gaming 3600mHz or 3800 Mhz ramwill utilise the CPU a little better, worth considering as it depends heavily on games played, mostly, ram speeds won't make much of a difference. Also that Ryzen cooler is quite loud at load, if you have the pc on your desk, a quite and bigger cooler will be a solid upgrade. Air cool for simplicity and cost to performance, or go with water if you don't like big chunky coolers.

        Definately pick up a 1TB SSD for game storage and files, they are dirt cheap these days. An NVME drive is also worth considering, even a small one to fit your windows load on as it significantly improves your load times. I get mad waiting for a regular SSD to boot up, those few extra seconds are worthwhile imo.

        I would say Ram and the maybe the SSD would be the most critical upgrades that tech fast will offer for a good price. The cooler and whatever else can be upgraded over time

        • +1 vote

          Thanks for the reply.

          All the RAM upgrade options are the same speed 3200 MHz. I guess my question is would it be beneficial to upgrade to 32 GB for $99.

          1TB NVMe SSD worth it to upgrade for $139 (from 240GB) to just use as windows drive? I intend to get a HDD later for actual storage, pictures/movies etc.

          With the cooler, only liquid cooler upgrades are available (120mm AIO for $89 or 240mm AIO for $139). Would prefer air cooler which I currently use but not available. Are these AIO coolers adequate? Or could I stick with the stock cooler? PC will sit on the floor.

          • +2 votes

            @Xastros: That ram will probably be fine for gaming DDR5 is right around the corner so splurge then I guess. You won't use 32Gb for gaming, FSX is the only game that needs more than 16 gig as far as I'm aware, atm, 16 gigs is plenty for gaming.

            I would get that NVMe drive, it's a good price and the speed will blow you away, you will appreciate it when you get it!

            I personally hate liquid cooling, for $89 you could get a good cpu air cooler and for $139, a Noctua A12S would probably outperform their 240 rad. But I'm quite biased against water! Don't take my word for it, do some research and buy your own cooler, it's the easiest DIY upgrade and you may not really mind the stock cooler.

            • +1 vote

              @lew380: Thanks again for your help. I've now pulled the trigger with just the 1TB NVMe drive upgrade and nothing else. Will upgrade the cooler myself later.

    Hi Luke,

    Is the bulk 3070 cards arrived? Still waiting for my order in May.

    • +5 votes

      We expected them last week but chasing the distributors now because we haven't received them, the messaging from them is the Melbourne lockdown caused a backlog of collections from their warehouse, so they should dispatch this week. Today being Wednesday we're hoping that means dispatch today and arrival tomorrow. 3070 systems are either in prebuild or pre-pick (for unassembled) so they can be prioritised.

      Ditto with the remaining 3080 orders from earlier - those cards are inbound too allowing us complete the batch.

      • +3 votes

        Update - 3080s just arrived so 3070 hopefully not far behind.

        •  

          Any 3070's arrive today?

        •  

          Hi Luke,

          Can you please confirm when the bulk 3070 card can be arrived?

          I was told my order in May are aiming to be shipped this week but apparently it was not happening.

          Thanks for your help mate!

          • +2 votes

            @caesarli: A small number came in today, but we did get the confirmation that a large batch is on the way to us for next week.

    Hi Luke, is that 3070ti one of the ones with the hash rate limiter? I had a look in the description on your web page but coudnt see anything.

    • +10 votes

      I think that all RTX 3070/3080 Ti cards are hash rate limited

      • +2 votes

        Damn, I thought they were adding "LHR" to the description of all the ones with the limited rate.

        • +1 vote

          Its confusing af, they really should just stamp LHR on any box that has a hash limited card in it… Nvidia are making a mess out of this.

          • +2 votes

            @bircoe: There are no non LHR 3070ti and 3080ti so no LHR in the name. Same goes about 3060 as they were meant to be LHR from the start.

            •  

              @errorius: Yeah the problem is that they are still has rate limited, just because there are no non LHR variants doesnt mean they arent LHR.

    • +1 vote

      Correct, all 3070 Ti are LHR. There's no distinction to be made between the two naming wise.

      •  

        Thanks Luke

    That's more like it!

    If you did an Intel version (feasible?) what motherboard would you use?

    • +3 votes

      Yeah it is more like it! Looking into Intel now, but yep, it's feasible. We have 10700KF from the previous deal which was on the Gigabyte US Z590. i5-10400F would be on something like MSI B460M-Pro with B560 maybe Aorus Elite and/or Mortar upgrade options.

      •  

        10400F would be interesting depending on B560 motherboard upgrade prices but I'm hesitating and at work so will probably miss out if you list one!

      • +1 vote

        Hey there @luketechfast - First time buyer but am looking for this with Intel! I really wanan buy as soon as possible where should i keep an eye out for an Intel version of this? SHould I keep checking this post or would it be a new OZbargain post…

        Will be looking at website too as dont wanna miss out if there is an Intel version! Can you let me know where to keep my Eyes ( or anyone! Thanks!)

        •  

          Not Luke but likely a new post. Based on past history I'd expect it in the next few hours - let's hope it happens!

        • +1 vote

          Yep, would be a new post for an Intel variant. Working on it!

  •  

    Can I pay extra to have the parts shipper separately?

    •  

      No need to pay extra, just selected "Ship Unassembled" at checkout.

      •  

        hi Luke - if I forgot to select "ship unassembled", can I do this post order confirmation?

        I can PM you the invoice number if that helps.

          Yep no trouble.

          •  

            @luketechfast: Hey Luke it says the ship unassembled are not prioritised, can we expect this to be shipped on end of june as well?

            •  

              @Bargainjustifier: They'll all be picked in date order, unassembled just skip build/testing so 1-2 days.

      •  

        Hey Luke,

        I was wondering if it was shipped disassembled, does that mean everything would be in retail packaging?

        Cheers!

        • +2 votes

          It will come exactly as we get it. Most has retail packaging. Some have OEM/bulk packaging (sometimes Galax GPUs for example or SSDs/HDDs are often shipped in sleeved anti-stat bags for example - in this case we securely package them for transit).

    Wow shouldve bought this than the 3080 alienware.

    Yea this is an excellent deal.

    Do you think this would punch out a good framerate and performance for Battlefield 2042?

    • +2 votes

      Depends…
      - Are you playing in in 1080p, 2K, 2K ultrawide or 4K?
      - What do you consider to be "a good framerate". Greater than 30 fps? 60fps? 100fps? 144fps? 240fps? 360fps?

      •  

        As close to 144fps at 1440p as possible

        • +3 votes

          Targeting [email protected], I don't think you'll be able to max out all the graphical quality settings in BF2042.
          At lower quality settings, highly likely you'll hit your target FPS.

          Although it does depend on RT and DLSS implementation.

    • +1 vote

      You will get 144 hz at 1440p no probs, though as always if you want performance you will have to turn some things down which are not important as even if you get full frames it will still lag a bit at high processing

  • +3 votes

    Damn the PC market is wild - my September 2020 Techfast build with a 3080/3700x for $2200 seems like an absolute bargain. Since when do PCs appreciate in value? hahaha

    •  

      The chip storage has made PC and tech in general expensive. It probably take 2 years or more to get RRP price.

      • +5 votes

        not really, everything is cheaper apart from GPU which went up 100% but now with new cards that limit mining things will slowly get back to rrp- 6 months and this deal will be at $1500

        • +2 votes

          But aren't these limiters cracked day one anyway and the firmware released over the internet?

          •  

            @dbmitch: it wont matter, the average joe mining to pay his card off will be put off paying scalper prices to try hack their way to getting their cost back. this will slow demand and allow prices to come down but desperate people will buy "discounted scalper priced" cards first and then once demand drops again rrp deals will start to show. I expect it to take close to a year for it all to settle and will probably see low end cards pop up in the market before that point.

            • +1 vote

              @Silent-zai: you wont see rrp 3080 at $1100 but expect to pay $2000 for 3080ti, $1400-500 for 3070 ti
              miners wont need them and if Nvidia starts to make more of TI's and less normal ones it can happen
              crypto is still way too expansive and profitable

              •  

                @botchie: i guarantee you will see rrp once demand lowers. scalpers don't want a paperweight sitting in the cupboard and retailers don't want them on the shelf.

                •  

                  @Silent-zai: why would a demand for 3080 subside? its the best card to mine and game, no way ppl will buy 3080ti for double if they can have 3080 at rrp, it just wont happen anytime soon, not this gen, maybe next year when new gen cards come in play but even then Nvidia now knows ppl will throw cash at them
                  3080 was always a cheap card, so much better then 2080ti and 100% cheaper almost

                  •  

                    @botchie: I'm not saying demand for 3080 am I? I'm referring to newer cards with the mining locks…

          •  

            @dbmitch: Nope, because there is a key locked in hardware and the firmware requires signing with that key, so do the drivers.

            There might be a hardware mod down the track, but will probably be too late to be meaningful.

            •  

              @richie83: So its won't be day one, but literally cracked a week later instead?

              Or do you mean a physical key that would require the guy who cracked it, to have to put in his key to every gpu of the same type worldwide on location?

              Cuz THAT would be ingenious, too bad it doesn't work that way.

      • +3 votes

        Things MAY never go back to what they were price-wise, if people are still buying up stock at these much higher than previous prices, it may not make business sense for Nvidia/AMD/partners to lower their RRP pricing

        There is also rising inflation and CPI in the US https://www.cnbc.com/2021/06/10/cpi-may-2021.html

        Also, for those who have entered into the gaming market recently for the first time may set their baseline at the current inflated pricing with no previous experience at how much "cheaper" gaming hardware used to be

        How the world has changed in such a short amount of time

        • +1 vote

          no, Nvidia wont lower the price but they will slap TI sticker and sell you the same 3080 for 2 x the price
          and good on them - why let scalpers make the money
          if ppl want to pay 2k for this card ok - limit hash rate and let gamers buy them

          •  

            @botchie: I think there is also a shortage of semi conductors and therefore a shortage of supply compared to the increase in demand.

            When there is less to go around, people will pay more if they want said item, in most cases.

            I don't think anyone WANTS to pay current prices, that is just what the market is now.

            Also, there is nothing wrong for those waiting for prices to go down again, but it could take a while to saturate the market for that to happen.

        Gaming, multitasking and some video editing with premier pro etc.

          I can't tell you tbh, I mainly game on my PC. Maybe someone here can help you out.

        • +1 vote

          I think you'd still see some gain in gaming at 1440p or lower res, but not a lot. Probably not $249 worth.

          However, multitasking and CPU intensive applications, Adobe Premier etc… it's a worthy upgrade. Seems a bit for that upgrade though?

          Mobo should be fine but possibly you'd benefit from 32GB ram?

    •  

      Nope. Not at 1440p or above in gaming.

    I know it's being picky, is there any way of knowing what range of 3070Ti it could end up being?

      For this price it's probably going to be the cheapest Galax/Gigabyte models, maybe MSI.

  • +1 vote

    Looking to use for Photoshop editing, would it be better to upgrade the CPU to the 5600x?

    • -2 votes

      no, both 6 cores and the 5600x only really upgraded single thread over the 3600 by about 15%. longterm it will last a touch longer as would an 8 or more core. but for the value the gains are not enough. $/fps is always better at the bottom/lower end.

  •  

    Will this play most games like legion,war zone, new battlefield in 4k Max settings?
    If not what should I be looking out for?

    •  

      Depends on what kind of frames you are hoping for to be honest. If you search up Techspot BFV 4k benchmarks you can see that a 2080ti was able to average 84 frames on 4k, max settings on BFV which is a couple of years old by now. If you're aiming to play at above 90hz/4K/Ultra on Battlefield then you're probably going to need a 3080, maybe even 3080ti. In saying that, 1440p Ultra is much more achievable on this rig and will be almost impossible to tell the difference unless your monitor is huge.
