      I too always look at the Techfast builds and see great value, its the upgrade costs that put me off a bit (upgrade to 1tb ssd, upgrade cooling, upgrade motherboard). Guess I'm looking for value on a different type of component

      • But you aren't getting good value on the other parts. This is just objectively a bad deal.

        So they're using a $50 cooler, which likely isn't a good cooler anyway.
        The Techfast z690 tomohawk wifi upgrade (what's actually a good motherboard unlike this deal's z690) is $159.
        The 1tb NVMe upgrade is $79.

        So, we'll just say that's $300 of upgrades.

        The price gap between a 3070 and 3080 is ~$600. The price difference between the deals is $134. The 3080 offers ~35% stronger gaming performance, ~55% higher hashrate and more, faster VRAM for future proofing.

        Also, that's the Techfast April deal. They'll have something better for May anyway.

        • Just missing the (+$239.00) 12700f upgrade and the (+$49.00) 850w power supply to be more in line/closer in spec between deals leaving a difference of $472 total.

          Based on just numbers, 22% increase in price for 35% increase in performance is good value if you are willing to spend more but I still think this deal offers value at its price point.

          Here's hoping competition between the 2 stays strong through until EOFY, really hoping one of the suppliers comes through with an unmissable 12 series deal

            Just missing the (+$239.00) 12700f upgrade

            I factored that in.

            $2234 - $2099 = $135. The $134 should be $135.

            (+$49.00) 850w power supply

            That upgrade isn't worth it. The 850w and 750w PSU will perform the same, and you can nearly buy an 850w PSU for the difference.

            The caveat would be that a 4080 could likely comfortable run on a 850w PSU, but not a 750w. However, if you're thinking of a Lovelace upgrade you shouldn't be buying so close to its release.

  • Strange that it offers a $69 upgrade to 1TB nvme, but the specs list says it's included as standard

      The BPC website always seems to have weird wording and formatting errors, logically I would think the upgrade would be to a Gen4 but who knows

      • The gen 4 upgrade is $159. It's like the deal's SSD is actually either 500 GB or sata.

          Nah they're just sloppy and copy-paste the template from older deals where it was 500GB. But the standard offer is definitely 1TB
