Build it yourself, ibuypower and most prebuilt overcharge and cheap out wherever they can. You can get a lot more for less money and a few hours of work. Building a computer is trivial for the most part as the philosophy of if it fits it goes there most of the time. Except for motherboard connections which good eyesight or reviewing the owners manual so it may take a few minutes compared to just snapping things in place.

The cpu is a generation behind for starters, for the other specs in the pc I would prefer springing for 32gb ram for more future proofing. 2tb hdd are about $50 or so if I remember correctly and I’ve seen the m2 ssd go for $100-150. I’m betting their charging a lot more.

What’s the cost? I tried playing around on their website and it’s way overpriced price/performance wise.
$1650 for the pc,but I got other stuff not on that list...$1900 for all including extended warranty on all parts

Here’s a quickly thrown together build, went a bit cheap on the ssd just to show what you could do while remaining reliable and fast. It’s not as fast as the fastest m2 but still a few times faster than sata based ssd, and truth be told the difference you notice is maybe 4 seconds to boot compared to 2. Cheap HDD placeholders as I know that brand is known for reliability and I’m assuming this is for data so speed isn’t necessary.

Than everything is quickly thrown together to match the other PCs performance while keeping quality parts in there.

Other people will probably be along shortly fine tuning this and showing off their builds most likely, so this is what my more budget and smaller mini atx build would be.

Eeek. Way overpriced.

You can get a simmilar warranty for free on most parts. Some good gpus and psus will have a 3 year or more warranty.
Not worried too much about $$. 2gs was my limit and I went wit having it built for peace of mind,idk shit about putting 1 together,specially wit liquid cooling,I'll let them deal wit it.

Wat would that price look like adding liquid cooling?

Liquid cooling is nothing special unless your worried about every last bit of performance which truth be told isn’t worth it due to wear and tear on the parts. Heat and electricity are killers on electrical components, both of which you increase while overclocking.

Also it’s debatable if overclocking a Ryzen is worth it due to the precision boost. I would argue real world results your better off investing in a good quality budget air cooler. The difference between a good budget cooler if you picked the right one and the high end is a few Celsius. And the difference between water and air coolers is a few Celsius again but your now risking your components with a water leak and hardware failures are no longer a simple fan replacement but can require an entirely new heatsink or replace pumps, etc.

Also having overclocked computers in the past you have to worry about system stability even after stress testing it. I’ve had over locks prove unstable years latter so I had to redo everything.
