This is a less expensive bundle from Novatech; 550 pounds---one step down from the 600 pound model you were looking at.

It is nearly identical to the 600 pound bundle. The only difference I can see is the case. They have the same CPU, motherboard, power supply, and RAM. You might find it preferable to go with this cheaper unit because you could then use the saved 50 pounds toward your SSD or a better monitor. If it were me, I would take this one, because a good monitor is something you appreciate every moment.

The case is still a regular ATX model.

Does anybody recognize it?
Will the SSD still be compatible?

The 600 one is sold out, looks like I will have to get a 550 one as long as the only difference is the case (is that a bad or good thing).

Yes. An SSD is compatible with any computer that has sata connectors as this one does.

So after having a proper look at the specs between both, the 599.99 has a slightly different case style and dimensions, is there any disadvantage about this over the other case?

None that we can determine with what we know.

50 pounds is quite a big difference between systems when the only known difference is the case.

If the 2 cases were sitting in front of me, I might be able to point out some differences, but I don't really know what brand cases Novatech is using.

So, barring more info, I'd choose the cheaper model to save the 50 pounds.

Both are full ATX and have plenty of drive bays. They would be equally upgradable as far as I can see.

The cases are the same depth. The more expensive case is about 4 cm wider and 4 cm taller. But the less expensive case doesn't appear to be cramped or overly small.

What if I bought the whole system then bought a 100 case a few days after that, can I just take everything from this computer into that leaving this one empty?

Yeah, but it would be foolish. Why waste 100 pounds?

If you don't like the case on the Novatech, don't buy that system.

Find another supplier with a case you do like.

Because I want a computer that gives great performance for 600 now so I can gradually upgrade bit by bit without worrying about hardware or size.

What makes you think that is not perfectly doable with that 550 pound Novatech system?

If you want to cherry-pick each and every part down to the level of fans, you need to do one of 2 things:

1: build it yourself

2: find a local builder, show him your list of parts, and have him build it.

If you buy a pre-assembled system of any type over the Internet, you may never get EXACTLY what you want.

I see nothing wrong with that case, although I don't have it in front of me.

What do you see wrong with it????

Because the fan and stuff might not be powerful enough, so if I get a case upgrade I assume I can get a better fan too.

Uhhh....................fans are replaceable on their own. Regardless of system.


What makes you think that the fans or cooling in the 600 pound system is better than the fans or cooling in the 550 pound system??
