Good price for this pc?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Im planning on buying the following pc for around 2k:

CPU: R7 3800x

GPU: RTX 2080ti

MOBO: MSI X570 Gaming Pro Carbon Wi-Fi

AIO: NZXT Kraken x62

RAM:TridentZ Neo 32GB 3600MhZ

CASE: Phanteks Evolv X Andresite

SSD: Crucial MX300 M.2 1TB

SSHD: 2x 2TB Seagate

PSU: RM1000 Fully Modular

 

I'm asking this since I dont know what pricing will be when the 3000 series drops, and if it'll still be a good deal if so.

2k what?

2000DKK, then you're gonna be crying tears of joy.

2000 potatoes and maybe you have a good deal


Anything i've written between the * and * is not meant to be taken seriously.

keep in mind that helping with problems is hard if you aren't specific and detailed.

i'm also not a professional, (yet) so make sure to personally verify important information as i could be wrong.

Just get a 3070? The 2080Ti will drop but not by that much

Nope imo, budget for the build? and workload? wait for ampere to actually launch first and you could also wait for zen 3 and check what it has to offer.


Fun Fact: The Meshify c is the best case to ever exist.

And you could further drop the price down by a decent bit:

^ so you're getting a non-7-year-old PSU, 2TB of NVMe storage (that's also new, going with used storage is generally not advisable), better CPU for gaming, and better graphics card. And it's all new.

VR is quite VRAM heavy, so some VR games the extra VRAM would be recommended

depends on the application.

it definitly can. maybe not in vr golf or vr solitare, but people i know who use VR which is where my statement comes from, the fact that they can see the amount of VRAM used.

my best guess would be that it depends on the setting and the VR headset that's used, (different resolutions).

and probably also the game. but if 4GB VRAM is needed for alyx and that's the only thing OP would end up playing then sure he wouldn't need the extra VRAM
