The 3600x looks like a $600 upgrade with mobo and ram. Been holding out with two OCed 2500Ks... Damn!

I'd keep sitting! Maybe clock it a bit if ur keen. That thing had a lot of life left in it.
09/07/2019 - 00:27
Yeah I get that but money needs to be no object. If you want it and it's not a big expense for you, great! But that's the cost of a flight...

I can't downvote a good deal like this but there are zero 2000 series cards worth buying. I picked up a second hand 1070 for $350 with 2...

Yep. I've got two pc's and a decent laptop that are all super old. I'm waiting until this amd generation is out and proven before...

Nice. I'd be leaning towards the 1700 for an extra 10 or 20 bucks but that's a sweet deal on something that can be a main box now and a...

I blame reddit for this kind of humour. Damn you reddit! And you too, Iforgotmysocks!
27/03/2019 - 22:17
Yep, this is a big price drop but the 1700 has been the one to buy for ages. These AMDs are not the best for gaming FPS, so they compete as...

Just grabbed one of these, thanks to OzBargain. Can't comment on the rest of the process but I got a confirmation email from Myer...
25/03/2019 - 13:40
Yep I did. $350 for a 1070. 2 years warranty.
22/03/2019 - 01:53
60 is fine... Takes a lot of grunt to drive 4k at more than that!
15/03/2019 - 13:56
Yeah I've still got a chimei 22 from back in the day. One dead pixel I think and it's spent a lot of time driving around between lan...
15/03/2019 - 13:54
It does. Recently bought curved 27. Monitors are the best use of curved screens imo. You sit at a set distance, in the middle. They're a...

Second hand 1070s are being dumped for low 300s with years of warranty. Bought pristine one a few weeks ago with receipts etc for $350. I'm...
14/03/2019 - 11:09
This looks good. I'm more likely to buy secondhand with a 1070 or higher for longer lifespan and vr but this looks like a decent offer....
12/03/2019 - 23:31
Nice. Just bought a 27" 144 curved for $300. If I didn't have other bigger panels already, something like this deal would have really...

It will be fine mate. Not as zippy as paying for the mid and upper tier gear but more than useful.
05/03/2019 - 15:32
Telstra tried to avoid fixing my Sony screen... Broke overnight sitting on a coffee table. Finally fixed it as a goodwill gesture. Found...
03/03/2019 - 14:41
Don't do it! My 4 year old Sony xperia 5 (4?) With keyboard is great and waterproof! Pick one up for a fraction of that. Or spend half that...
03/03/2019 - 14:39
Sales have plummeted because they're thinking just like you mate. It's more than the cost of a whole system. Market economics have limits...
27/02/2019 - 12:14
Indeed, but like Amazon they're trying hard with that. I support my local but for the big stuff and the system builds its much cheaper to...
24/02/2019 - 11:10
These have been around 250 to 270 for a while and are the best deal in brand new graphics imo. Good for 1080 gaming right now and then...
24/02/2019 - 11:07
Yep, Apple had improved but the US companies are generally poor. Amazon is a highlight, but hp has had a bad reputation for decades, plus...
22/02/2019 - 10:46
Nah. This is silly money. $1000 for s GPU? No wonder their sales have plummeted. Phones and pc's have risen in price while the performance...
18/02/2019 - 13:23
Agreed. These are a great part but if AMD is going to come through with a step change this year, this isn't super value long run. But, that...
16/02/2019 - 22:59
No I don't think so. I'm considering picking one up second hand in the low 300s... A solid card at a reasonable price. I'm waiting for...
04/02/2019 - 10:29
I'm still running two 2500Ks with a 770 and 970, waiting for a proper upgrade. If I needed a box today, I'd buy this deal instantly. I've...
11/01/2019 - 12:33
A good price but a strange product. 4k needs a very expensive card to drive it but 27 inches isn't big enough for 4k to be useful. I run a...
29/12/2018 - 10:01
I have no expectations of battery. My old i7 gets 90 and about 150 minutes out of the aftermarket batteries when the old gt650 is partly in...

The dream is something VR capable but for sensible money you have to buy from the U.S... So much cheaper via new egg etc.
