    I'm looking into getting this pre-built pc but was just wondering if its a decent set up? I know that If I built my own I could get it cheaper or get a better system but I cant do that at the moment so was hoping to get a decent pre-built one to last me a few years. I'm terrible with the specs and everything else so hoping you could look these over and tell me if its a good build or not!

    General spec wise its alright, but that motherboard is DDR3 and the spec above is listed as DDR4. Its also an EOL board, if your buying new now buy new not EOL.

    http://www.gigabyte.com/Motherboard/GA-H110M-DS2-DDR3-rev-10#ov

    Its also an M-ATX board.



    The MB and PSU are arguably the two most important pieces of a PC as everything is connected to and/or powered by them. ;)

    The two links in your post are to generic searches on eBay. Don't buy it from eBay.

    The RAM will probably be generic crap too.

    Go with somewhere like Overclockers UK, Scan, Ebuyer etc. Or even a local PC shop. This is purely from an aftersales support perspective, as in if it goes bang.

    £800 you say, for just the PC or are you needing a KB & Mouse, and a monitor?

    I've never heard of Freshtech, but a qucik Google gives me a website that doesn't work, mixed reviews on Google and no real contact details. Seems they do most of their selling on Amazon Marketplace and Ebay. That would be enough for me to avoid them, and I wouldn't buy it and I wouldn't recommend it to anyone personally.

    If I were spending your hard earned £800 for you, I'd go for something like this, granted it is is a bit over budget at £867 but its infinitely better in the quality of the hardware and the supplier. :)

    Notes:
    Its a K processor so its overclockable unlike that other one.
    Much better full size motherboard with a better chipset.
    This RAM is branded.
    It will be built well and will look good.
    Better aftersales support.
