    So... I bought a new PC today

    So, I decided I needed to upgrade. I bought an IbuyPower gaming desktop today.
    Computer Specs:
    - Intel Core i7-8700 6-core 3.2GHz (4.6 GHz Turbo)
    - NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2070 8GB
    - 16GB DDR4-2666Mhz Memory
    - 1TB SATA Solid State Drive
    - High Performance Air Cooling
    - Integrated Wifi

    Spent about $1,350 on it today, was it worth it? Don't really know much about computer hardware. Reason why I built a pre-built is because I don't exactly know how to build my own computer

    He can’t OC as the processor is not unlocked.

    For $1350, no SSD? Not worth it imo

    Building your own PC with refurbished components is way cheaper. If you aren't tight on money I'd say it's a decent deal. But you could get the same specs like 35% cheaper

    I'm jealous. :(

    Nice PC man, not too good with hardware either but I spend about $1000 on my gaming laptop and your PC looks twice as good. Enjoy.

    Not worth it my dude. You could have saved over $300 if you chose to build it yourself. You also should have gone for Ryzen now that they're making Intel kinda obsolete.

    I watched videos to learn how. It only took me about 2 hours to figure it all out. Like I just had a how to video on while I was doing it and watched a part then did, watched the next and then copied that as well. It was super easy actually.

    Edit: Also, unless you think your time is worth more than $150/hour then it would 100% be worth it to do it yourself.

    Could of saved on the processor its an overkill also if your going to spend that much money on a SATA SSD might as well go NVMe SSD. Aside from saving a few hundred bucks FUCKING awesome build man jesus its great.
