Should I buy parts or pre-built

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP
I am going to buy a new computer and I have looked into building one myself or buying a pre-built one. I don't know much about parts but my budget is 2500, and I am trying to get both an i9-9900k and a 2080 ti. I also played around with the cyber power configuration, but I don't know much about it.
In short, my question is what computer I should buy to get maximum gaming performance with 2500 dollars.

Links to computers I have looked at:
I wasn't able to make a link but here is the name - Cyberpower: Gamer Infinity RX Ultra 300 Gaming PC

generally, building instead of buying prebuilt lets you know every last part that's in your PC, and better bang for buck since you don't pay for the construction.

plus or minus a windows license, if you're into that

I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B


Primary PC:

i7 8086k (won) - EVGA Z370 Classified K - G.Kill Trident Z RGB - Force MP500 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - The venerated Hyper 212 Evo (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G2 650W - Black and green theme, Razer branwashed me.

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.


Linux Proliant ML150 G6:

Dual Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - GTX 750 TI - old Seagate 1.5TB HDD - Dark moded Ubuntu (and Win7, cuz why not)

Thanks for the fast response. I was wondering if it would be worth to wait for the new Ryzen 9 3950X and also what the difference is between i9-9900k and the Ryzen 9 3900x.
I am looking to buy an Alienware ah2518hf monitor and I want to be able to reach 240 fps with my computer. Is Freesync or G-sync better for gaming?

I will also be looking into overclocking,
