    Any 3080 coming up? Previous one expired thank you

    • +9

      We're working on high tier card deals with local suppliers now, yep. No Gainward cards incoming at the moment.

    • -3

      This whole PC is cheaper than a 3080 on its own. no brainer.

      • +4

        No brainer confirmed (jk)

        • Woooo, heaps of BPC sympathizer here, no brainer. lol.

  • +2

    standard SSD or M.2?

    • +1

      Says NVMe in the title

      • +4

        Following the link has it as 2.5 SSD.

        Might need some clarification.

        • Agreed, the PCPP list also has a 2.5"

    • +7

      It's an NVME, website updated thank you.

    • +8

      TechFast specialise in budget-friendly gaming PC builds. You don't go to a restaurant to order single ingredients.

      • +6

        They sell other graphics cards on their website, it's not like what i proposed is something wild and unheard of for TechFast…

        • You'll notice a lot of this anti consumer type behavior in the comments. Your 10 neg votes are from scalpers/miners/snobby gamers/ people who feel contempt towards lower gpu prices. They trawl this site because they feel threatened it could crash the values of their current gpu/s. So they give bad advice, attempt to incite panic buying, upvote expensive deals and downvote anything they perceive as a threat to current values

    • +7

      Definitely something we've done before as you've said, definitely not something we have access to right now though.

  • +1

    PSU won't be Allied brand? MSI or Gigi for sure?

    • Yes

      • Thx Luke for confirming as someone got your previous build has complained about the Allied PSU quality, so need to make sure we won't get Allied anymore!

  • +11

    3600/5600G/5500. The numbers change, the performance stays the same

    • +6

      I saw the Gamers Nexus video about the 5500, it scored lower than the 3600 in some tests

      • +1

        Watched the video, pretty brutal, gets beaten by the 12100F on a lot of benchmarks! But for a lot of prebuilt buyers, they will look at i3 vs R5 and decide the 5500 is the way to go (even though the upgrade potential of Alder Lake makes it an even bigger win!)

  • +1

    Would this make a decent office machine as well as very light gaming (GTA 5 etc) or is it overkill?

    • +8


      • +5

        Nothing wrong with going for overkill tho IMO. It's moderately priced for a entry gaming PC and will suit your needs for a few years to come

        • Yeah that's true. But if they just check the used market they may save $1000 and still have a PC that does what they want/need

          • +8

            @scottySK: To be fair the used market is still pretty average right now. Most drongos on gumtree still thinks that gpus are still worth more than a small car, and are trying to flog off their old mid-range PC for like $1000.

            I'm normally all for buying used but there's something to be said for just buying new and avoiding the hassle.

            Alternatively, building an even lower end PC would be even cheaper and would still be fine for office use/light gaming.

            • @snep: The low end is still fine. I saw an i3 8100 PC with 16gb ram, 256gb SSD with a solid PSU in a nice tg case for $200. Just add in a $50 750ti or similar and it would be perfect for office/light gaming. I recommended this to my friend who is in the same boat but they decided on a laptop instead (poor choice honestly).

              Any mid-high end PCs in the used market are still overpriced

              • @scottySK: That does sound like a good price.

                I had a quick check in my area last night and found nothing close to that, people were asking $1000 for an amd 1200 + 1060 system for example. Maybe people still call that "mid range".

                I guess there are still deals to be had if you're prepared to spend some time watching new listings for a while or live in a busy area.

                Maybe I'm a bit biased since I've had a few annoying experiences on gumtree which ended up wasting hours of my life and effectively negating any savings. I tend towards either eBay or new these days, much less effort.

                • @snep: I would have been amongst the first ever users of Gumtree and am sad to see it fall behind the likes of Facebook marketplace.

                  Buying and selling used products locally has always been an interest of mine across all my hobbies, particularly tech. Less so the last few years due to the messed up new/used market.

                  I'm sure local buying/selling can be annoying, but it can also be amazing

    • +1

      seems like it

      • -4

        Definitely better

    • Not really,
      The BPCTech build includes a 1TB NVMe while this does not.

      I would choose the Case Techfast are using over the BPCTech Case.
      Its not mentioned how many case fans BPCTech includes in the build so it probably only includes the rear fan.
      BPCTech also use Aramex for their shipping - I could write a long story about how bad they are but a 1 word summary - Terrible

      • They offer AusPost shipping also as an option on some builds

      • Also forgot to state that the Techfast CPU is a AMD 5500.
        If you do some research you'll find that the 5500 chip should not have even been released.
        It is so inferior for the price AMD are asking. The 12100F(even non-F) is slightly better performance & its cheaper.

    • Almost $300 difference and I am sure BPC is working on some counterattack deal for a 3060Ti build too

    • +1

      You can't mine bitcoin..you can mine other shtuff and get paid in bitcoin …lol 😄

      Part time miners were not the cause of this shit either… Mining farms Def contributed though… 🙂

  • If I am buying this as a gift for someone overseas, is it possible for me to order it to arrive unbuilt and claim TRS refund on departure?

    • What difference would that make? You're still meant to be carrying the PC case and all the components by hand anyway if you're claiming GST

      • It appears that oversized goods can be processed for the TRS by allowing an officer to sight the product and stamp your invoice before checking in the item. Does this mean then that I should have it prebuilt and check it in as oversized? Or carry as much as I can and put the case in checked luggage? I'm worried about damage mostly.


        • You'd be wise to not claim it. I suspect you would be grilled to a crisp by the officers there who are processing the GST and even if they allowed you to claim it, you are risking it getting manhandled by the baggage handlers and damaging it beyond use. Remember that you have to declare it if you're bringing it back in and repay GST, and if you don't, something that bulky is going to be noticed by the customs officers who can easily check the system to see if you claimed it on the way out. All of that for $117? Really bruh.

          • @orly: If you're really buying it for someone overseas and leaving it there, then yep you can technically claim GST and check it in before going to the airline counter. But the risk of damaging the CPU is still present.

            • @orly: As I said, I’m buying it for a family member overseas. That’s why I preferred the parts to come in their separate boxes so that I can pack them nice and tight in my suitcase. I hope that I can still do the TRS before checking in my luggage even though technically the items would not be oversized if they came separately.

    • https://www.australianfrequentflyer.com.au/nasty-change-tour…

      We no longer have the benefit of you plan to bring it back

  • +4

    AMD Ryzen 5 5500 only does PCIe 3.0 (just in case anyone is curious)

    • so will this cost any obvious bottleneck with the 3060Ti?

      • +2

        It shouldn't make a difference, I think only 3080+ saw any difference on PCI 3 vs 4, even then it was like 2%.

  • Anyone got feedback about these cases? can’t seem to find more specs or pics online or compare to the usual MSI mag forge

    • -2

      From what I can tell the case is cheap quality

  • +1

    Thinking of biting the bullet, with the 5600X upgrade. Can anyone suggest if it's worth stepping up the mobo too?

    Would be looking to add a NvMe SSD later on

    • +1

      If you select the mobo options in the list it will let you know how many NVME slots there are and RAM DIMM slots if you want to upgrade that also in future

    • +2

      I think the PRO-WDH wifi is worth it, but definitely not any of the higher X570 options

    • +1

      Have noticed that by the time you spec it up with CPU/Mobo, this BPC machine offers slightly better value. I also know someone who bought a BPC system so feel a bit more comfortable vouching for the quality:


      • +1

        Thanks, reckon you are right, and BPC are just down the road from me so saves $50 postage!

  • I would literally buy this build on the spot if I could be guaranteed that the GPU I’d get would be the MSI Ventus 3X OC 3060Ti… if only

  • Hi Rep,

    Please let me know if there is any 3070 ti deal soon? I am ready for an update
    And do you accept trade in? I do not know what to do with my current PC after i buy a new one.

    • +3

      Facebook marketplace! Computers sell quickly if priced correctly.

    • +1

      We're working on other high end GPU deals. Not sure if 3070 Ti will feature just yet as 3070 and 3080 seem to be offering better value. We don't offer trade ins but yeah selling locally is a good option.

  • Hi Rep,

    Is this compatible with Windows 11?

    Thank you.

    • +4


      (not rep)

  • +3

    In case people are wondering, yes this will net you more framerate than every 3070/ti and most 3080/ti laptops out there.

    Desktops are just that better than laptops, that as a gaming laptop owner I would not recommend anyone in their right mind to go for a laptop over a desktop, as long as they dont need it for portability purposes.

  • Made an order today how long should i expect to wait for delivery to NSW

    • Thanks for your order! It'll ship out early next week. Everything's in. Delivery a small handful of days, depending if any flooding is affecting the NSW Auspost network overall.

  • Monitor is 32 inch 4K 60hz, does it mean I can only have 60fps max? Can this pc run 4K 60fps in most games?

    • +1

      Yes that means 60fps max, and no the 3060Ti doesn't run most modern games at 4K/60.

      Have a look at this video to get a sense of whether the games you're targeting might:

      If the games support DLSS that will also give you an fps bump for a small sacrifice in visual quality.

  • Awesome looking deal. For some like me going for a budget under $1k what motherboard should I get which will allow to upgrade parts in a few years? Thanks everyone

  • @luketechfast does this come pre-built or in packages? Sounds stupid but ive had "prebuilds" turn up and had to build it. Im buying for a staff member who cant build it so want to check

    • +3

      my techfast pc came completed and ready to boot up and go

    • Replied to your PM but yes, confirming it's fully assembled.

  • Can't wait for Zen 4 systems in a similar spec, going to snap up a platform refresh in one of these packages

  • I don't play games in PC, but like to do lot of graphical and video editing stuffs, anyone suggest a good configuration?

  • 5500 is a hard pass guys

    Aim for a 5600 cpu at least these days


  • Fyi I had mine delivered today and Aus post just left it on the door step - no one was home infact I was 300kn away. Had to scramble to find someone to swing buy abd pick it up. As much as i appreciate the super speedy fulfilment and Techfast have no control over Auspost - my brand new system chilled on my front door for 35 Min until someone could get there. Feedback to Luke, is there anything you can do for others with the parcels that they have to be checked!

    • So how long did it take from you bought it till delivered?

      • Ordered on the 7th in the evening. And arrived on the 14th.

        • What State are you in? What date did they ship out, was it fairly quick? Still waiting on mine but mine took almost a week to ship out.

          • @maelstrom: I'm in Vic, so they shiped on the Monday and it arrived on Thursday… I'm sure Auspost were trying to get through as much as they could pre Easter Holidays…. 4 public holidays in 3 weeks is a bit much for Aus post!

            • @Flavin: Nothing techfast can do. Since covid even “signature on delivery” packages get left at the door

    • +1

      They should not be doing that. I will pass on to our account manager

  • Does anyone know how reliable is this Biostar mobo?

    • I’ve had one for a few years from a build I bought from these guys about 4 years ago. No issues

  • Hi! Guys, I'm an absoluted noob at these PC tech. I really wanna buy a PC for mostly online MMORPGs and probably some offline games too. Because I've never own a PC costs this much before and I've broken quiet a number of PC and laptops before so I'm pretty skeptical at buying a PC at this price. But I have no idea if there Is there anything I should be worried about like the Motherboard or the CPU or the cooling system or anything? Thanks!

    • Nvm I just found out that the motherboards is not that great.

  • Thank you so much Luke for helping me out on my order, after so many months of painful searching work and finally decided (for my son) and bought this system. TF has been super speedy on email responses, and so stupid me I did a silly mistake by using form auto fill and didnt check it missed out our villa number in the address.
    Both Luke and Caleb quickly reacted and reassured my address has been corrected, whatever requests I asking for like GPU fully separated and include all original packaging, windows preinstalled & these guys promised to do that no issue, now hopefully the whole package arriving safe and sound!

  • One more thing that TF is so good, they don't charge for credit card fees !!! Saving me almost $30 !!!

  • Looking for something similar, but with a plain case

    • Unless you can build yourself, the only other option you have is the MSI MAG 100R case

  • +3

    WOW! TF is just so amazing !!! I received this build today, from the time they pickup my order, built, shipped & delivered only 4 working days all the way from Adelaide to Sydney, thumbs up too to Auspost for their super speedy delivery time frame.

    The only option I ticked is the Gigabyte mobo but when I received it, TF so kind and give me a WIFI version !!! Saved me another $45 for a PCIe card, already bought one on my way home, hence need to take it back for refund.

    THANKS SO MUCH TF and especially Luke, please keep these good deals coming !!!
