Hey Guys,
I am just starting out with PC's and looking to purchase a prebuilt one for around $1500-1800 AUD. I've currently got two in mind and would like if you would like to recommend some, that would be great :).

The two that I have had a look at are here:


I would also like to include Wi-Fi and Bluetooth as well.

Same sorta builds with minor differences. Thanks for the help guys.

is case the only difference?

core has a higher rated PSU
Thermaltake SFX 550 80Plus GOLD Power Supply
compared to
Thermaltake TR2 650W 80Plus Power Supply

core has 240mm aio, Pro has 120 but it has more case fans

everything else is the same. So Its sort of, which do you like look of more?

i would take core as its easier to get cool air through mesh front than glass.
CPU isn't likely to run hot but mesh probably better for Australia than glass... its what I went with

For that price. you could easily get a system with an RTX 3060 ti in it or just a 3060 and with better CPU's.

$1699: SkyTech Shadow 3.0 Gaming Computer PC Desktop - Ryzen 7 3700X 8-Core 3.6GHz, RTX 3060 12GB, 1TB SSD, 16GB DDR4 3000, RGB Fans, AC WiFi, 600W Gold PSU, Windows 10 Home 64-bit, Black

$1552; Skytech Shadow 3.0 Gaming PC Desktop - AMD Ryzen 5 3600 3.6GHz, RTX 3060 Ti 8GB GDDR6, 16GB DDR4 3000, 1TB NVMe SSD, 600W Gold PSU, AC WiFi, Windows 10 Home 64-bit
 
Different countries
He is in Australia
That is in USA

The pricing is slightly different too. Basically almost double if you lucky to find a cheap 3060.

I wish we could get 3060 for that price here.

I saw one 3080 for the same amount of cash my entire PC cost. Demand and supply is always wrong here.
My PC with https://au.pcpartpicker.com/list/sLbY7X (exclude the kb, monitor and mouse + add 1 GPU that you can't get now to price ($700 more) and it is about $3500 to buy that now...)

it used to be cheaper to fly to USA, buy adobe and fly back than it was to buy it locally.

If you did decide to build it yourself you could get something like this and it would out perform either of those prebuilts.
