Hey guys, I'm new here. I'll cut straight to the chase.
I'm looking at buying a gaming computer and 2 particular computers have caught my interest.
PC 1: is priced at $2200AUD
PC2 is priced at $900AUD

PC 1 specs:
2x MSI GTX 1070 Ti's
i7 8700
32GB RAM 2400
NZXT Kraken X62 AIO Liquid CPU Cooler
1000W Power Supply

PC 2 specs are:
Intel NEW 9th Generation I5 9400f @ 2.9GHz Max Turbo 4.9GHz
MSI Gaming x OC Nvidia GeForce GTX 1070 8Gb.
Corsair Vengeance RGB Pro 16gb/2x8gb DDR4 @ 2666MHz
Asus Rog Strix B360-G Gaming Motherboard
128gb SSD
2TB HardDrive
Cooler Master Master Liquid ML240L CPU Water Cooler
Thermaltake Smart Series 550W Power Supply

I've been wondering if having 2x graphics cards are worth it nowadays or should I go with the other computer and save up for a more powerful card.

Thanks so much for the advice!

Hey, thanks for the advice!
Not really. I've built a computer before. But I saw this deal and thought it looked like it was pretty good. Why do you ask?

Normally, you can build one a lot cheaper than a premade one and you use decent computer parts in the process. 1070's are old now, as in they are not made anymore

I have not really had much experience with AMD and know little about their CPU's. Thanks for the list. Are you sure that a RTX 2060 6GB would be a better option than a GTX 1070? I mean, the deal is about 700 dollars cheaper, after all.
