EVGA for quality and international warranty when buying from overseas and Asus because their GPU's are good in general? My opinion hasn't changed much.

If you want to spend less you can go with Gigabyte and those other cheaper companies.

Agreed EVGA power supplies are apparently unbeatable land asus is pretty darn good. I particularly like the asus hero ix motherboard for the audio features I can set sound to come out of multiple devices. Game sound from speakers YouTube sound from tv etc.
I spend 4K to get that discount probably overkill but it’s amazing.
Re-destiny I noticed that dropping the depth of field setting from highest to high gives about 50 FPS.... not sure what’s up with that. Sits at about 160 during campaign with everything else maxed.

Is it cheaper to buy components like GPU's from overseas? Im guessing so, but is it worth it?

Depends if it has international warranty. Tax is removed at checkout too if you buy from places like Amazon France, etc, you can potentially save $100-$300 easily. I would if I wanted an EVGA GPU.

Yeah got the email thanks mate. The gaming prebuilt rigs didnt really appeal , and only about 10-15% off them too.

 

 

This one is an odd one, has like $200 off the price shown here, and it has a 1080, seems cheap really. Sort of wonder what is missing, the savings all cant be in just the SSD and HDD being halved surely.

Like this one the most if we put double the RAM in , and put a 1080 upgrade to it

Its AMD But I think the 64 is equivilent to a 1080. 3k down from 5.5k.... I wouldnt even look at it for 5.5 though haha. $3k looks reasonable maybe.. Except that red coolant.

Maybe between $2 - 2.5k

Was almost going to throw down on one of the PB tech computers on cyber monday but that one sold out by 7pm (which is when I finished work and could look). It had a gtx1080, but seemed cheap at $2200 odd. Was wondering what the bottleneck was on why so cheap with a 1080 in it, only thing I could find was a 128mb SSD and 1TB HDD but couldnt see that making up the $600-800 drop Id expect to see a 1080 system at.

Probably was a cheap motherboard and i3 or Ryzen 3 CPU to keep cost down.

Good list, but nearly $3k and no GTX 1080, should be able to change a few parts to go with a GTX 1080 instead, maybe even GTX 1080 Ti. The motherboard is also for 8th Generation Intel only I think which is the new 1151-2 socket, which is probably smart to go with for future proofing.

Hahaha yeah PC Part picker is better for checking compatability. Dont even know if it fits in the case etc.. Just bored looking at parts.

What would you go with if building for 2.5k?

Could swap out the i7 for a i5 and spend the extra couple of hundred to swap the 1070 for the 1080. Also maybe a bit overkill on the water coolent if your not overclocking.

The Case is always a hard one to suggest to people cause everyone has their own taste in what look they are going for. Im really digging the full glass looking cases at the moment!

Just did a quick list but with some more thought you can drop the price down a bit more on some components, thats about $3000 though but includes GTX 1080 Ti, 250 GB M.2 NVMe SSD and the new 8th Gen Intel i5 which is 6 cores 6 threads @ 3.6 GHz compared to the i7 7700k which is 4 cores 8 threads @ 4.2 GHz...more than enough for gaming.

 

To drop the price down to $2500 you can go with a slightly cheaper motherboard but you'd have to give up some features like M.2 and USB Type C etc - can also go with a cheaper and smaller SSD drive and then upgrade later or add another SSD later, maybe even drop the RAM down to just 8GB and add another 8GB later.

 

The case is hard to recommend like you said everyone has different tastes, I'm currently using this https://www.computer...=p&partid=27705

Mmm thats a much nicer list Outlaw, a 1080ti and the i5 would go nicely. Im running the 1080ti with a skylake i5 6600k and never had any issues.

They said Destiny 2 was goning to be a strain on the CPU but my i5 is killing it!

Honeslty Spawn if you do decinde to make your own, it can save you enough to be the difference between a 1080ti and a 1070. I put mine together in a night and i hadent made a PC in years. Everything now just clips together and its pretty hard to get it wrong.
