Ryzen 5 3600 | RTX 3080 Gaming PC W B550 MB, 16GB 3200 RAM, 480GB SSD, 750W G PSU: $2338 + Post (Late July/Aug) @ TechFast

940
3600-3080-JUL

Hi folks,

As promised, more 3080 stock has been secured for units shipping from the end of July into August onwards. Also as mentioned previously, we're officially all in LHR/non-LHR crossover territory, so there are three models offered - the base card will be an LHR model which is why the base price has dropped, we have limited upgrades into non-LHR (original release) cards, and an LHR Gigabyte Gaming for those seeking a guaranteed Giga card.

LHR is here to stay, by the way. Everything we're hearing from NVIDIA is that non-LHR/original release aren't being manufactured anymore, across all models - dedicated mining GPUs will start to hit at some point for those purposes. So if you want a non-LHR card, this batch is almost certainly your last chance.

Ryzen 5 3600 | RTX 3080 10GB Gaming PC: $2338 after 3600-3080-JUL

  • AMD Ryzen 5 3600 6c/12t processor with stock cooler. 120mm AIO from us or after-market cooler recommended for optimal gaming thermals.
  • RTX 3080 10GB (brand/model may vary; base card LHR, limited supply of non-LHR upgrade and LHR Gigabyte Gaming upgrades available)
  • Gigabyte B550M DS3H motherboard (various upgrades available)
  • 16GB 3200MHz RAM (brand/model may vary)
  • 480GB SSD (brand/model may vary)
  • Gigabyte P750G 750W 80 Plus Gold PSU
  • Lance-V RGB ATX Case (New MSI Gungnir 111M case upgrade (pictured): $79)

    By the time this ships, I get the feeling you will be able to get a better deal and/or source the parts yourself given the current climate and Techfast turnover times

      It'll probably be $3,000 and a 15 month waiting list by August. PC gaming is fracked.

      I would say they would now have to legally change their name to "TechSlow" otherwise it will be false advertising. ;)

      Looks like GPU prices are slowly starting to stagnate and stock is a bit more plentiful. Hopefully things should be creeping back to normal by the end of the year.

        Should change name as TechSecure coz their website was very secure before. Lmao

      Too right. Recent statistics show that average pricing for GPUs has fallen from a staggering 300% above MSRP to just 150% in the last 2 weeks……… with any luck we might see MSRP finally in the next few months…. be patient, don't buy!

        I am trying not to click "buy now" . Its hard but worth it I think. Price is fallen down rapidly.

          Don't do it bud, not worth it. and gaming not that important. I give you the power! spend the money on your fam or pay down bills/buy a house with land that doesn't depreciate…

    Nice deal given the situation but there is light at the end of the tunnel, finally! Now is the time to wait if you can, it appears as though things will return to normal by years end or at the very least March-ish 22

  •  

    Hi Luke, is it possible to change to this deal since I had ordered the 3600, 3070ti build at EOFYS only since the previous 3080 deal was finished? The only difference between the builds would be the 3080

  • +2 votes

    Given the price difference is minimum, get the non-LHR card even not mining.
    it would provide better re-sell value in future, much more potential than LHR version.
    who knows if cryptocurrency surges again or not in next 3 years.

      The difference is minimal now, but it also could be bigger in a few months.

    Does the LHR has lower gaming performance in comparison to OG cards or is it just for mining?

    Definitely seems like it'll cool off by the end of the year, more so knowing they're manufacturing seperate cards.

      To get your foot in the door for just gaming, yes consoles are much cheaper than PCs. There was once a time where it was possible to build "console-killer" PCs for the same price point but it's getting harder and harder these days.

      The point though is that PCs can do much more than just gaming, as well as the fact that consoles lock you into their ecosystem so they will continuously earn money from you as you purchase games, subscriptions, etc. Kinda like how printers sell for dirt cheap but they make their money back on ink.

    Op, is it possible to have everything installed except the gpu? Looking to resell it.

      Just take it out yourself, it's probably the easiest thing you can do - unlesa you mean you want it new in the box?

    •  

      Yes you can ask for all boxed parts or assembled.

      •  

        I want everything assembled except gpu, I want it sealed in the box

          You'll want a different CPU since as far as I know the 3600 doesn't have inbuilt graphics

            @Gaxx: Ship Unassembled

            By checking this box, your Graphics Card will be fully stress tested as part of your complete system, but removed and sent in protective packaging for transit. It will be the end user's responsibility to install the graphics card, and we can provide assistance if required. All systems are packed internally to minimise the risk of GPU damage during transit, but this option may be a consideration for larger or more expensive graphics cards, where the possibility of damage in transit may be higher. We will do our best, but cannot guarantee that the original retail packaging will be provided.

            • +1 vote

              @Levity: So they will still open up the graphics card rather than leaving it brand new and sealed in original packaging?
              Aren't all components brand new so shouldn't naturally they have their original retail packaging? How can you lose this if it's unopened?

              •  

                @Oznew: I know it's been a while since this post, sometimes (often) manufacturers will also sell OEM components along retail, which is usually just the item+CD with drivers in anti static packaging with no box or anything extra. Not sure how common it is for graphics cards but it is fairly common for hard drives and burners at least.

    Why is there such a big difference in upgrade price for this system from techfast? The supplied AMD Ryzen™ 5 3600 has a AMD Ryzen™ 5 3600x upgrade option for an extra $299. The price difference on this item from most retailers is no more than about $50 on average. I understand techfast has to make a profit but that $250 price difference is a bit much on a single component.

    • -2 votes

      so you want them to raise the base price by $250?
      I would look at it like they are heavily discounting the 3600 so you take that option if you want better value for money

      • +1 vote

        No the base price can stay the same and just raise the upgrade option price on that component by $50 not an extra $299.

        •  

          they make their money on the upgrade options. ie selling up.

          •  

            @abuch47: I know that's why I said originally " I understand techfast has to make a profit" but there should be a reasonable limit on how much extra you charge not almost twice the price or more.

            • +1 vote

              @User50301: How they get cheap prices is ordering in bulk as well for a certain budget. So they may have 50 sets of 3600 bundled with other parts at less than market price that allows a tight to nil margin and offer an upgrade for the more well off consumers and helps them make a more reasonable profit.

              It's still slightly more expensive than I paid for a very similar TF system in january.

              •  

                @abuch47: Logged on to say the same but you've beaten me to it

              •  

                @abuch47: Not stating any issue with base price. Issue lies with single upgrade prices. Their own evaluation on the value of Ryzen™ 5 3600 is $285 as above on page but yet to go to a Ryzen™ 5 5600X they want an extra $299 on top. The Ryzen™ 5 5600X can be purchased on average for around $399 - $428 so a $114 or so slightly more difference has turned into an extra $299 that's a big price difference on a single component.

    • +2 votes

      I think you mean upgrade to 5600x (not 3600x)

      •  

        Perhaps thank you my mistake. But even that model has a huge price difference also of about $150 more than average for the upgrade option that's currently an extra $299. For example,

        Ryzen™ 5 3600
        Amazon $293
        Ryzen™ 5 5600X
        Amazon $428

        So a $135 difference is costing an extra $299 for the upgrade. And this is but one example store on this one component, using other places like statice show and even greater price difference as does Techfast own breakdown on the top of this ozbargain page of the computer with the Ryzen™ 5 3600 being shown as $285.

    Is Nvidia or AMD releasing any new graphics cards this year?

      Not this year, apparently might be something in the works for next year but nothing confirmed (literally typed what you asked in google haha).

      •  

        Thanks. Was hoping there was something new this year so I can skip the RTX 3000 series all together.

        •  

          Yeah same here ! Got a Nitro 5 that is doing the job on Warzone at the moment but I want to play BF 2042 and not sure if it will handle it (even in low).

        They have something up their sleeve, but waiting till AMD Radeon or god forbid Intel catches up then releasing makes more sense

    Is it possible to customise and remove the case, ssd, change the cpu to ryzen 9 and remove the psu?
    I already have a great quality full tower case with high quality parts that I'm happy with.

    Hey Luke, when are you expecting the computers for the June 3080 deal to be shipped? Not that I'm impatient or anything 🙄

    • +2 votes

      Funnily enough I asked this question only a day or so ago.

      The response is that it will be from mid month onwards….

      •  

        Anyone received theirs yet? Been almost a month now and I asked for it not to be assembles hoping it'll get delivered faster.

  •  

    not impressed with the system my sister bought before last Christmas - it's already been back once for repair and when it was sent back the 'replaced' RTX 2060 GPU is faulty (run it for a few minutes and it crashes the system - repeatable with uniengine benchmark).

    My sister not keen on paying to return the entire system again to have it potentially be returned a second time and still not 100% operational. I told her to return it for a refund as it's not fit for purpose.

    •  

      Mine crashes when running any game on high settings. Apparently it could be the cheap PSUs that techfast uses

      • +1 vote

        Yeh, the Allied PSUs are garbage. I've gone through 2 so far and the latest one's fan just died but outside warranty period. Ripped it open and replaced the 120mm fan with a spare reputable brand fan (thermaltake) and works fine for now!

        But overall very happy with TechFast's warranty process and their responses. I knew what I was buying, and knew the risk with some of the more budget components. The remaining components have been fine. No other way to keep prices so low and given the current market saved me $400-500 on a cheap and capable budget system.

        Would be happy to purchase again in 2-3 years time.

    •  

      I'm waiting for your reply via PM to help you resolve this from what I sent earlier this week. If the unit is faulty, the customer is entitled to be reimbursed for shipping, as I've explained.

        thank you Luke, I'll discuss with my sister this afternoon what she wants to do and get back to you by end of today.
