Looking to buy a Desktop for Livestreaming and gaming on Amazon. I have a budget of $3000 for the desktop. What are my best options to go with?

Submit links to the best Desktop pre builts from Amazon under 3k 馃檪

And yes I understand you can get a lot more power and save money if you build it yourself. I just don't want to this time. I already have done it. Maybe again next time.

I second this. If you need to use amazon, you can just buy the parts from there and build your own.

I mean not everyone wants to do it but things like NZXTs BLD??? I think the branding is would be a better option over Amazon.

If you have the option to, then I would definitely recommend building your own system with components that are within your budget to most likely have a faster, more upgradable, and higher quality system as compared to going with a prebuilt. This way you can select components specific to your needs and get the best value for the money and you know what components are being used, unlike many prebuilds which may have proprietary components of lower quality and/or less room for upgrades later down the road.

Building your own would be the absolute best way to do聽a gaming desktop, not only for the money you save but the quality of components, customization, and upgrade ability.聽If you absolutely can't or don't want to build it yourself NZXT BLD, Origin, or Xidax have great options. Personally if I was ever going to do a prebuilt I'd go for a well established builder like them over a random company on Amazon, those "Amazon" prebuilts aren't actually made or put together by Amazon it's third party companies just selling their builds on Amazon and they're usually way overpriced.

If you must go pre-built, does it have to be Amazon? IBuyPower has a pretty good custom builder with basically full customization of any part you could want. And there are some good coupons right now that would save you a few hundred.

I'm trying to buy a pre built desktop on Amazon. They have a bunch of different companies that sell pre builts on there so I was wondering what to go for. I know building a desktop is better and saves money, I've done it before. Just looking for the best bang for my $ when it comes to a pre built desktop.聽

Full time job and student, don't have the time to build rn

I need something that will arrive fast and will have high fps in 1440p games聽

I have a feeling Amazon has some good companies that sell pre builts. What about the CyberPowerPC SLC 8800 gaming desktop

Does it have to be from amazon? Buying聽directly from the company allows you to customize the parts.

Skip going through Amazon especially if you're thinking on going with a not so well known brand name, the best way to buy a prebuilt is directly through the manufacturer, if you're looking at a Cyberpower buy from them directly. It allows for part customization and you get the warranty and all that jazz, likely the Cyberpower PC on Amazon if not sold by Cyberpower directly is going to be one that someone ordered or a business ordered to resell, so that means no customization and likely a limited or no warranty at all. As I said in my previous reply, NZXT BLD, ORIGIN, and XIDAX are the only ones I would use personally if I HAD to buy a prebuilt. You could go Cyberpower but get it from the actual company not off of Amazon.

Don鈥檛 go intel go AMD but again look places other than Amazon, you can get better deals through other places.

Also building takes a couple of hours tops you can squeeze that into a day. If you can鈥檛 I don鈥檛 really see why you want one as you鈥檒l never be able to use it.聽

I could always add another 2080 super and change out the fans in the future for better performance.

Noooooo don鈥檛 go multi GPU. That鈥檚 been dead for years now, very few games and programs take advantage of them and the ones that do are either professional AF or synthetic benchmarks.聽

Multi GPU is dead, no modern games have support for it and future releases won't either.

The I7-9700k聽build you linked is about $400 CAD over the price of a brand new I7-10700k build with much better components if you were to buy it yourself. The 3950X build is about on par with what it would cost for one to build yourself. However聽lower quality components, and only a 120mm AIO for a 3950x... Lmao聽Cyberpower is such BS.

Case is pretty terrible

Getting a 3950x for gaming and streaming is a big waste of 200 dollars.

Also for the price of that computer 3.5k I think you can build a 3900x 2080ti full custom loop build.
