it includes a 3,49$ Promo that is allways on sale, but also a 3,99 shipping.

Total:
$1499.97

should be just about the best for the 1,5k pricepoint. in reaction to some of the poor component choices spotted in this build in hope of builders not getting a bad experience

In courtesy of LTT Forum I'm here to join the... war? I chose for nvenc encoding with the 2080 windforce, combined with a 9600k, cooled by the 212 black RGB, a 12 phase z390 UD, 16 gigs of ram, a NVME QLC ssd, a 7200rpm 3tb hdd, a nice mesh case with great cable management, and a formula gold to handle it all, as some psu's recently have problems with certain psu's (SeaSonic Focus for example)

So here you have: The Saviour 1500
