Hey,
So my recent pc broke because of the motherboard or the gpu... I wanted to make a new (the old one was pre built and not made for gaming) but my dad which is the one who is paying for the pc doesn't want me to build one. I was looking for a pre built gaming pc but I don't really have an idea on which brand to look for. The maximum price is about 1550$ CAD. (Don't ask me why he doesn't want to build one. I also don't know).
 
At that price point, not building one is a sheer waste of money. If you want the best deals, wait till Black Friday to order.

Ryzen alternative with the same SSD, HDD, PSU and Case as the Intel Builders with the 1070, but with the Risen 5 2600 on the X470 which will allow for overclocking and the 1070Ti is a much better card than anything you find in the prebuilt.
