iBuyPower Windows Gaming Desktop (Intel Core i7-9700K @ 3.60GHz, 16GB DDR4, 3TB HDD, 480GB SSD, RTX 2080 Super) Model TRA1348GV2
This is a monster of a gaming PC. Based on the specs, our projected price is $1743. This isn't factoring in features like the included liquid cooling.
The included i7-9700K hits the sweet spot for gaming. It gets nearly all of the performance of the i9-9900K at a fraction of the cost. It pairs perfectly with the RTX 2080 Super.
The RTX 2080 Super sits just below the RTX 2080 Ti and Titan RTX in our benchmarks. On the high end, it represents the best mix of price vs. performance.
The 16GB of DDR4 RAM is good for this system. The benefit of jumping to 32GB would be marginal.
The 3TB HDD/480GB SSD is a very good mix. Obviously 3+TB of space on an SSD would be nice, but it would also add incredible cost. The 480GB SSD is enough space to store Windows and your favorite games.
