      Holly cow, good prices…

  • Does this not come with windows installed ?

    • It’s installed but not activated.
      You can pay extra or else source a license elsewhere

    • +6

      If you buy a copy retail, it's expensive.
      You don't need one or can get one under $20 online.
      Standard for cost effective prebuilt.

      • +3

        Some claim these keys aren't legit longterm but I've had no issues over last 12 years

        • Got mine from aliexpress for $1 I think. Year or so in, no issues still.

        • They are "legit" but they are not used for the purpose for which they were issued or sold.

          So, IT professionals get them for free or very cheap, and people then sell them.

          Technically they breach Microsoft's Terms and Conditions, but it's unlikely that they would know (or be able to prove) that you are not using the key for the intended purpose.

          So, they breach Microsoft T&Cs, but people are very unlikely to have their key revoked, and even if they did, you could just buy the retail version then, without affecting your PC in any way.

          So, it's more a matter of ethics, rather than practical use.

    • +1

      Installed, not activated. BYO key from another system or buy another off a uni student with access to Microsoft software (or some shady dealer).

      Linux, simply not activating, or sailing the high seas works too.

  • B550 Aorus Elite ATX upgrade not available on the page for selection

    • Fixed, thanks.

    Hello I bought one of the pc deals about a week ago, just wondering if there is any updates on the estimated time, this is the pc link, https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/714110

    • If you can email the team at [email protected] with your order number they will be able to give you an eta, cheers.

    • Hey, do you reckon that PC in the link is better than this deal or not?

    • +1

      Took almost a month for mine (with these specs) with very vague answers and no updates without constant prompting.The build is good though.

  • +1

    Jebus, I bought a similar spec system from tech fast for $2k around a year ago. Did I get rorted or have the prices really come down this much?

    • +13

      Both but anyone buying a GPU over the last 2 years got rorted

    • +3

      If it's a similar system then of course prices will come down a year later.

    • +3

      Both. PC parts were ridiculously overinflated last year and prices have plummeted over the past few months.

      Techfast are normally good for pricing so you probably paid a good rate for 2021, but even that was way over what the equivalent tier costed in 2019.

  • +3

    any 12th gen team blue with 3070 coming up? :)

  • +4

    Pretty please, something with a plain case

    • Can turn off the Rgb on this class

      • +5

        The shape is still pretty garish

    • +1

      The case is not as ugly as it looks in the photos. It's very dark and slick with the lights switched off. It's also silent. Only downside is that it's prone to dust as the front is very open.

      • +2

        Shape's so naff though

    • +2

      MagForge ain't that bad with the RGB off, got a few of them in the office.

    • I'd give anything for a beige case!

  • +3

    Any chance you can do some ITX builds?

    • +4

      Not at the moment sorry, although we may be getting into ITX builds in the future.

      I came here to ask this too, love me some small pc

    $799 by the end of this year.

  • Is it worth upgrading from the Gigabyte B550 Aorus Elite MB to the AMD X570 for an extra $10?

    • +2

      That question isn't possible to answer as the page doesn't say what the x570 board is.

      The b550 Aorus Elite has a very good VRM setup. It is entirely possible the x570 board is not as good.

      That being said with a 5600 CPU even the default motherboard will be fine. You aren't going to get better performance by spending more on the motherboard just more features. The only thing you would need is a wifi dongle, or you could get an excellent pcie wifi card with plenty of money to spare.

      Techfast prices aren't good when you start upgrading components, the best value is the system as advertised. I wouldn't upgrade the motherboard if I was buying this.

      • +1

        Techfast prices aren't good when you start upgrading components,…

        True. You have to deal with the standard ugly case, standard cpu fan, and cheap PSU. And don’t forget you have to factor in $99 delivery for PC to arrive 3 months later, and hopefully not DOA, which has happened to many.

      • Thanks, much appreciated.

        • Mine was $50 delivered works perfectly

  • +2

    my goodness, only 3 months ago same price only got me 5500 + 3060Ti, now 5600 +3070. Prices seems not rock bottom yet

  • +4

    Build it yourself and choose the parts you want. I was considering a built system, but the ugly cases, warranty return to base concerns, and mix of good and average components put me off. First time builder, it took me 3 hours start to finish. I had to do maybe a day of worth of research/preparation - a lot of which was understanding which components to choose. It's really not that hard.

    • What did you build ? Could you share/list your parts ?

      • +2

        i5-12400, msi pro b660m-a, 6700xt, patriot viper 16gb 3600, samsung 970 evo plus, lian li o11, corsair RM750w modular, id-cooling se 224 xt. Came in around $1600 delivered to door. Didn't bargain hunt too hard as I wanted to do it quick.

  • anyone know if parts are good like psu ram etc idk shit about pc

    • +1

      I got a techfast computer and the parts were just "ok". Which is 100% fine with me at this price point. I don't need to overclock my computer, I don't want to do anything fancy. The only thing I'd change is putting a decent nvme SSD in as a system disk and using the supplied one to store games, but even that isn't absolutely necessary

  • +1

    Part Picker incorrectly linking to 3060Ti for $749. Actual total comparative cost is over $100 more. Nearly $1,500

  • Can you connect your own 2 x 3.5 drives + 1 x ssd easily along with provided ssd?

  • waiting for a 3090 build thats off its tits. sick of seeing BP dropping the big weight with crap tech. come on luke… smash them bro

  • Hi, would you consider upgrading the power supply, for an extra price?

    • Yes, More power efficient usually pays off over 5years of 100% uptime.

      • Also allows for any future upgrades.

        Power supply issues are some of the hardest to diagnose, because they are usually transient, and can occur in any part of the system.

  • Can we run AAA titles on max settings? Also is ryzen 7 and 3080 is actually worth the money? I'm an intermediate gamer plays COD most of the time :) and I wanna do Solidworks and Inventor

    Please help

    These deals are pretty good, but I always find the shipping kills it for me.

    $50+ regular and $100+ for express just chokes the value out of it, particularly given many retailers offer free shipping.

    Given, as far as I can tell, collection isn't an option, ~$1350 is realistically how much you will pay for the system shipped, which is essentially what it costs to buy the parts as listed above.

    Is it value for a prebuilt, yes. Is it value for someone who can build their own, probably not.

    • One bonus for people who aren't experienced building their own PCs, is that all the hardware (and I assume firmware and drivers) is installed, ready to use.

      People building their own system risk damaging a part (by static electricity for example, which most people don't use) or that a part could be faulty, which requires replacement (it also requires figuring out which part is not working or causing problems).

      I have found that setting up all the hardware, drivers, OS, with all the updates (which sometimes can only be installed a few at a time, before restarting), running part checks (hard drive and memory read/write tests, etc) so it takes a lot of my time to make sure everything is setup perfectly.

      So, for most people, I would definitely advise that they buy a pre-built system (unless you just want to do it for the fun of it or something).

  • People building their own system risk damaging a part (by static electricity for example, which most people don't use)

    It’s rare but just wear anti-static gloves to be safe

  • Ordered a gaming PC in June, after 2 weeks & multiple emails, both PC & GPU finally shipped separately but under the same tracking number. GPU received two days later. Until now I still haven't received the PC. Both TF and I tried contact Auspost, I was told to wait until next week where item will be deemed as missing and work out compensation plan with sender. OP pls help if you can.

    • I had 3 boxes shipped under the same tracking number. Missed the delivery; dropped off at postal hub next day and picked up all 3 boxes

    • Just reached out to you via DM.
      Cheers

  • Please a real decent deal on the 550 dsh - preferably flashed to order . Will become near obsolete soon anyway

  • any chance do a AMD 5600 + RX 6600 XT deal?

    • As long as it's like $800

  • Got this deal 2 years ago with a ryzen 3600 and cost 200$ more
    been serving me well so far, able to do most games at full resolution

    Only problem i've been having is at times the computer freezes every 5 minutes and you have to reboot it, not too sure what's wrong with it but happy with the machine itself

    • Most likely bloatware. I found the Razer app caused some games to freeze intermittently.

      Also have you have the PC a clean? As dust could be overheating it

      • yep, have it dusted every quarter

        • Ctrl Alt Del > Task Manager: See if any processes are eating up CPU or memory

          • @Danstar: You can use a similar tool which gives you much more information, eg Proc Monitor and Proc View, to do the same.

    • Monitor your CPU temperature, it could be overheating.

      • it usually happened as soon as i start my CPU, and even with high temperature things usually still run quite smoothly

  • For system monitoring and fault tracing, Sysinternals is one of the best ways (or even the best way) to monitor and diagnose your PC https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/

    It's a little jem which not many people have heard of, but is very worthwhile using.
