    If they can market these heavily in the same places less informed people spend £1000 on a pre built machine, that has a top end processor, but a very low end gpu... ...this would appear to casual gamers, or parents that are being nagged by their children to get gaming pc, to be a very good piece of kit and a worthy upgrade. It's blind robbery, but put into the right places it could actually turn a profit.

    It might be more useful for Maplins and PCWorld type places,especially if instructions are included.

    The problem is that most of the PCs that would benefit from that Corsair 450w PSU are ones that need a non-ATX form factor PSU. Similarly, making the GPU a stock full-height, dual-slot model doesn't help anyone either.

    The systems that would benefit from all this are the endless Dell/HP/Acer/Lenovo custom chassis that can only take a limited range of components, because cosmetically those systems go down better with non-savvy customers than traditional mid-towers.

    Yeah I agree, a lot of these prebuilt home PC's generally aren't made to be easily upgradable. You normally have to do a lot of research into these for example the most common thing is the HDD caddy placement which like you said rules out average length GPU's unless you do some case modding voiding your warranty. There's also PSU size, type of RAM (especially with some skylake systems needing DDR3L instead of DDR4), case depth and even the motherboard might not have a PCI-e x16 slot on it (common with the smaller form factor prebuilt systems).

    The "less informed" are unlikely to do all that research, buy one of these kits thinking it's all they need and get stuck at the first hurdle. It's a great concept but I don't think it'll do well in practice as they'll have a lot of returns due to incompatibilities.
