I haven't used a prebuilt since early 2000 but in these times it's about all there is.  I have a system that is a little over a year old, 3900x/32g/2080s and it basically does everything I want minus run cyberpunk2077 with raytracing at 3440x1440@100hz


So I'm in a weird place that my system is acceptable for everything I do, but my last PC was acceptable for everything I did minus a later discovered problem with anti-virus and anti-malware on the same system (was fine for years then crash city)


Now I'm trying to grind as much crypto as I can, either to sell and buy upgrades or save for retirement or somewhere in-between.


My solution was an Alienware on 12 month financing so I can remote desktop into it and let it mine eth or btc for a year and pay for its self, That or come up with the cash to pay for it and have a *free gaming PC in a year.


Right now I'm running my I7/1060 laptop for daily use and avoiding gaming on my main rig for fears of cutting into profitability.


Anyone else in the same situation?

Well forget mining if you get a prebuilt, those things run hot and usually are the most bare minimum spec when it comes to the parts.
