Default So I ended up ordering my first pre-built in decades

Due to the way the market is, it is actually cheaper to buy a prebuilt system now than it is to buy the parts and spend the time putting everything together...which is a first for me. The 3070 rtx alone is going for around $1300-1500 (which is retarded). So I ended up ordering one of these;

This monster should be able to hold me for quite a few years, which is the idea. Only downside is I have to wait until May 3rd to get it, but at least I have a date. Was able to use a few discounts and coupons to reduce the price about $350. I calculated all the other parts myself, and it would have ended up costing me around $400 more if I were to build this myself considering the market.

This might be the cheapest way to get an RTX 3070 right now!

Decent deal. Might replace that 120 mm cooler with a 240 mm but then it seems you went ITX case so probably going to have a nice cooker in there.

Not sure if a 240mm will fit, but I can always change the case out later if I need to.

Small size, but tons of power.

Whats the total cost?


Sometimes I feel like I should buy a pre-made just to be lazy and have it done when it arrives. Unpack and plug in and off running.

After discounts and then taxes it was like $2,085 or something like that. Considering the card alone is going for stupid prices like $1500 I saw this morning, I basically paid only $500 more for everything else (Processor, cooler, motherboard, case, memory, PSU, SSD, and a mouse + keyboard I'll probably never use). Hell of a deal actually.

Meh, I can always buy more/faster later but considering the power of the rest of the machine the mem speed will be negligible.

I think pre-builts always put in slow memory. Only enthusiasts really know about memory speed and they don't buy pre-builts.

6000GB SATA 6GB/s 5400rpm WD Blue WD60EZAZ

I personally saw better builds on Newegg with a 3070. More around the 1600-1700 mark.

I saw some builds that were close, but not quite to the level I bought around the same price range. Maybe they don't offer it anymore? Either way, I'll be fine with my purchase...when it ships on May 3rd. Just hope it doesn't keep getting "delayed" due to the video card shortage, but they said it would be about two months to get it so the first date is expected.

There's always going to be a better deal somewhere...it's why I stop looking immediately after getting something I want lol. If I can't do an instant return/exchange, like Bestbuy, I won't drive myself crazy over a few bucks. That's a nice rig you bought for a decent cost. I'm sure it'll serve you just fine for some time to come.

Prebuilt is the way to go these days.


Friend bought a RTX 3080 and I7 10700k system for like 2 grand. Swapped out PSU and case and is currently rolling.



He had to troll around for this deal though, so the word on this is getting out!

Wouldn't even bother trying bestbuy for pre-builts. All the 3x series deals are sold out, regardless of the price.

strange enough, most retailers promise a delivery between 7-10 DAYS for pre-built 3070-systems. I find that ...... a bit suspicious... Well, i guess we / i'll have to wait and see what happens.

Ahh according to the case description, it can support a 280mm AIO. I may upgrade to that at a later date, though to be honest I never overclock (am I really going to need to with this system?) so I'm not sure it will be needed.

Hard to tell to be honest, if it was AMD then no it would set on fire.

It may not be the coolest but unless you using prime 95 AVX it should manage, depends also were you live and ambient temps.

I ordered the pc in my specs for $1899. From BB. Was a little strange ordering prebuilt but I’ve got no complaints. Even if I was to tear it apart and rebuild it, the items I would have bought any way would cost me more individually.

If you have any thoughts of buyer's remorse, eject them (as long as your machine works as advertised). This is an insane time to be a PC gamer. Worrying about getting a better deal is better served if you wait a year or two. Six months before/after today? It's no use even trying. "Is it available?" "Yes." "SOLD!"

No buyers remorse, just waiting for them to deliver. I only asked them to change out the 120mm AIO for a 280mm AIO now that I know the case can handle it. Otherwise it's "hurry up and wait" until May for the delivery. I just hope the 3070 they are including is NOT a gigabyte. Those have had terrible problems with artifacting and some even being DOA.
