plus a cheap garbage psu!

u/emberus_the_warrior Oct 20 '21

O I 100% can guarantee it's cheap motherboard,psu,cpu cooler and ram. When I used to work bestbuy I remember seeing the pc set ups there where so many cheap parts on the inside of a 1500 pc. Bet they build for 800 then charge 1500 and I also have no idea who the pc company is that's selling this pc right here.

u/omfgkevin Oct 20 '21

Yep, they always have some bootleg OEM that honestly kills some of these.

Plus the bloatware.... Like 5-10 different stupid useless applications preinstalled!

THIS! If they’re not letting you choose your own PSU (and especially if they won’t tell you what PSU they’re using), they’re probably using the cheapest one they can find, and you can expect your PC to either die or set fire in a handful of years. PSUs aren’t even that expensive, but a trustworthy one with decent efficiency is vital regardless of what parts you’re using

Edit: when I say let you choose your own, I’m referring to custom build sites like cyber power and pc specialist, since they let you choose all your own parts. But my point about not telling you what parts you’re getting is vital! If they say “ASUS motherboard” but don’t tell you what model, assume it’s the cheapest one that fits the specs, and if they don’t mention the PSU or give you a basic brand name or rating, assume it’s the cheapest PSU you can get from that brand or in that certification class. If they’re not advertising the specific part or they’re vague as to what component they’re putting into the systems, they can pretty much give you anything and it’s not false advertising, so be very wary about that kind of stuff regardless what part it is

u/KronosGreek Oct 20 '21

More than likely an Ares 750w or 800, they're almost always bronze or gold. I keep telling people to go through their website, prebuilts for newegg and bestbuy are parts that bestbuy and newegg choose.

u/WarblingWoodle Oct 21 '21

Agreed. Better off going with a custom build. Would look for something with at least 1 TB SSD, 2TB HDD, and lower price. Would also check the RAM speed and PSU on that thing.

According to Gamer Jesus the gold rating doesn't necessarily equate a good power supply. Always cross check them for known issues or they might zap your components.

u/yesilovepizzas Oct 20 '21

I'm also from a 3rd world country and the crypto miners hoarded a good lot of top tier GPUs, a 3080ti used to be $1k but it rose up to about $2k especially when that stupid NFT game became stupidly popular here.

On a side note, that game has been violating the local laws, rules, and regulation and they fucked up with PC part prices.

Going back, when I built my Ryzen 7 build back in early 2020, I could say this is overpriced. But with the current pricing, it's just fine.

u/meganeoneechan Ryzen3 2200G | RX570 | 16GB DDR4-3000 Oct 20 '21

u/yesilovepizzas Oct 20 '21

It is. Same as what the other guy replied, it's the Ethereum mining that's causing it as Eth is the first gateway cryptocurrency to get into that game then it get converted into their own cryptocurrency. For some reason some of these players also buy good PCs to play the game which do not really need a powerful PC but yeah, if they also wanna mine, that's where it goes.

It was EVGA, one of the most respected GPU brands and that was because of a soldering issue which were all quickly replaced under warranty. And it was like little over a dozen GPUs.

That was during the beta. During the release multiple brands including Gigabyte got bricked.

To give you insight. I had a 3080 and then did a trade in with EVGA for a 3080ti. I dropped 15-20% GPU usage on Forza Horizon 4 max settings on 4K60FPS. That thing is godly.

The first drop that best buy did after their last queue improvements, I got a card for myself and my brother no problem.

Set up twitter alerts with fixitfixitfixit, have the best buy app on your phone with the cards you want saved and all your payment/address information, then when you see bestbuy stock notifications showing up go sit at the page of the card and refresh it until you can add to cart. Their new queue saves that card for you while you checkout and find a store to ship it to now instead of ripping it from you if someone checks out earlier. You get 15 minutes to finish checking out. The only way you won’t get a card is if you get to the page too late by ignoring notifications or best buy didn’t drop the brand you want that time. The latter is why you watch more than one brand.

If money isnt an issue I have this pc for 6k. However, if you want to save about $1500, you should look for something else

"Worth it" and "money isn't an issue" generally don't always go hand in hand.

If money isn‘t an issue, why are you asking then? In my opinion it‘s ridiculously overpriced.

u/PaleImplement Oct 20 '21

Worth it? and money isn’t an issue go against each other, no? It is overpriced, but if you are looking to play on high settings and high resolutions, you will be able to do so for quite some time.

No. That's overpriced. If money isn't an issue and you wipe your ass with it then get this, since finding a 3080 is impossible.

u/KaraiDGL Oct 20 '21

No. If your budget is about 3700 dollars you can bump up those specs quite a bit. 1tb nvme and 11th gen cpu. That’s after bs GPU markup prices. This pc is absolutely not worth 3700 dollars.

u/9ragmatic Oct 20 '21

That m.2 better be stacked. If it's 256gb nvme it's a scam

2

u/mTrofeo i5 9400f 4.1GHz | RTX 3070Ti | 16gb RAM DDR4 Oct 20 '21

This is like 1000-1100$ overpriced if you buy the parts and build it by yourself. Or even you could buy the parts and pay someone build it for you and still have a few hundred bucks left.

u/Ant1MatterGames Oct 20 '21

u/emu_unit_01 Oct 20 '21

I know money isn't an issue, but this is ridiculously overpriced dude. As for parts, it's pretty beefy (angus quality, though not wagyu). I wouldn't personally drop the money on this, especially given it means these companies will start making these prices the new norm

u/zainn_1999 Oct 20 '21

u/HammeredBanana Oct 20 '21

Lul when I was looking for my 3080 last year there were systems just like this for like 1800

2

u/SamJensen_ Oct 20 '21

If money isn't an issue, get a similar spec one but with a 1 or 2TB SSD. This has a ridiculously small SSD and you should not be running HDD's in a 3.5k pc.

2

u/greendave11 Oct 20 '21

At that price it better least be the most current gen Intel chip generation, which the 10,000 is not last I checked.... What type of games would the end user be playing on this machine?

2

u/sgtcoolhero Oct 20 '21

I mean, if you got the money, feel free to spot me haha jk

2

u/TechAndStocks Oct 20 '21

If money isn’t an issue, you should build one on a builder site with the best hardware available and it will come out to around the same price, with much better components

$3,700 is a pretty large budget for a gaming pc. You can build a really beastly machine.

2

u/catmandoom84 Oct 20 '21

Jebus! I got a pre-built from micro center and paid a grand less for the same build plus a better processor and evga 3080

2

u/Braidz905 Oct 20 '21

Just go to PowerGPU and get a custom build if you don't wanna build it yourself. They won't price gouge like most retailers.

2

u/StaleCarpet PC Master Race Oct 20 '21

CLX is one of th few places to acquire a 30 series graphics card. The price I paid was 400$ cheaper than what the scalpers have driven the market to. It's over priced as the total build but not too bad if you want a 30 series gpu

2

u/BarickObunga Oct 20 '21

No. From my experience with pre builds you will get a shitty stock cpu cooler, and even though the RAM will be 32gbs it will be slow. If money is no issue and you don’t want the stress of building it, buy the parts individually and find someone to build it for you. Even with their fee for building you’ll end up with the a much better system (with a good AIO/air cooler for the cpu and good ram) at probably at a smaller mark up than buying the pre-built

2

u/after4beers Oct 20 '21

So when money isn't an issue how can you ask a question if it's worth it? This is a paradox.

2

u/MerkyMouse Oct 20 '21

If money isn't an issue build the same pc for way less money

2

u/DadLast I5 7500 | GTX 1080 SC | Fatality B250 k4 | 16gb 2666 Oct 20 '21

Pre builds almost always look nice on the outside but are made of the cheapest materials available to man. For 3,700 you could build a better pc even if you paid scalper prices.

2

u/ayyop Oct 20 '21

If money isnt a problem then build one instead of buying

2

u/JaehaerysIVTarg Oct 20 '21

A 500GB M.2? Nope!

2

u/OmgItzAbid i7-12700k | RTX 2060s | 16GB DDR4 3600Mhz Oct 20 '21

Overpriced af even if money isn’t an object for you. I’d feel disrespected if they offer me a 500GB nvme ssd in a pc >$2000. Especially if it’s an unnamed one, I’d assume a low quality one at that.

2

u/larrytenders Oct 20 '21

Newegg has a tuff gaming one for same price. All asus parts and same and better specs

2

u/Babayaga20000 Specs/Imgur Here Oct 20 '21

Absofuckinglutely not.

If money isnt an issue you should buy from Origin, or Maingear, or Cyberpower

2

u/benislover343 Oct 20 '21

money is always an issue. why pay $3700 for that when you can spend the same for something better?

2

u/unifyzero Oct 20 '21

If money isn’t an option, I’d suggest looking at custom builders. There’s a few good online options out there, or you can even look locally (we have two good local shops near me). Find a company that only builds computers and lets you know what parts you’re getting. Only use other options if you’re saving a ton of money or aren’t too worried about what you’re getting…

I got a really good deal on a PC from iBuyPower. The GPU and CPU are good but everything else is bargain bin, and I had to fight them to RMA a faulty GPU… If I’d paid a premium price I’d be mad, but since it was so cheap, it doesn’t really bother me.

2

u/robbie2000williams Oct 20 '21

No, but mOnEy iSn'T aN iSsUe so just buy it and save us the humblebrag

2

u/Fauvan Oct 20 '21

Way overpriced. And people who say money is no issue definitely have money problems. So maybe save up and not buy it.

2

u/Tajertaby 12900K, RTX 4090Ti, 128GB RAM Oct 20 '21

You could build a PC for cheaper than this or just post on r/suggestapc for better prebuilt suggestions with “[Discussion]” in title. Must use square brackets otherwise the post will be automatically removed.

u/drillhead72 Oct 20 '21

Last year my son ordered a very nice gaming computer for $1600, and now his video card is worth more than that lol. Prices are crazy. I built my Nephew a gaming computer last year and put a six core, 12 thread ryzen in it, a Radeon rx580, 32 gigs of memory and a good motherboard in it for I think $650 total. Two months later the ryzen I paid $130 for was about $300 and the 580 was twice what I paid for it.

2

u/TakeThatRisk Oct 20 '21

No not really. If your budget is unlimited bigger SSD should be priority no 1 imo.

u/okletsgooonow Oct 20 '21

4tb HDD!? A hdd? Seriously?

2

u/SolarSelassie Oct 20 '21

If money isn’t an issue and you don’t want to build just make a custom one on origin pc they’re actually not too bad

2

u/SnooComics4968 Oct 20 '21

If money isn’t an issue, spend the money on the parts and hire someone to put it together if you don’t want to learn how. You’ll still end up getting a better build for that cost.

u/Weodoes-REDDIT Ryzen 2600 @ 4 GHZ GTX 1070 Ti 16GB DDR4 3000 Oct 21 '21

If you realize that you are getting scammed and money isn’t an issue than yes

u/Walkofroses06 Oct 21 '21

For that much, you can pay someone to build you a PC and y'all go out for dinner, Best buy is nuts...🤦🏽

2

u/Jack_ov_most_trades Oct 21 '21

Best buy tries to make things look super awesome, when all they have is super awesome crap. Steer clear of this. If money isn't a worry, go to ibuypower. Com and configure a nice system. They have all parts more or less in stock, and you won't bet a bunch of garbage....
