Hi all,

I was about to pull the trigger on this prebuilt gaming computer but wanted to get your guys' thoughts regarding price, parts, etc. I know that I may be paying a bit extra for having it prebuilt but I am willing to if the parts are of good quality

I don't know anything about PowerSpec themselves, beyond being a MicroCenter subsidiary.

While the PSU is likely budget, and corners will be cut on board/cooler/RAM/storage etc, it doesn't seem a bad price at all.

Considering an i7-9700KF is a ~$450 CPU, and an RTX2080 is $600-$700 at their cheapest, that's not a bad "value" overall.

You can compare the 'off the shelf' components. The case looks to use the same OEM as a case I recognize, but can't quite place it now... Zalman, maybe?

Other than the PSU (a Microcenter exlusive) and a case (probably ~$50ish), this is pretty much what you're getting, judging from the pictures.

Thank you so much for your prompt reply!! I think I may pull the trigger on it since it’s on sale. Maybe I’ll get the extra warranty just in case some of the components fail prematurely.

Once again I really appreciate you taking the time!
