You can definitely build your own with similar or even better specs for a few hundred less. Just check out PC part picker. Plus it's kinda fun to build your own.

And by better specs I mean better cooling, and definitely a better SSD.

Incorrect. One thing is to say that it's "funner " to build your own and another one is to just say that you can build this for a few hundred dollars less. Try inputting the configs yourself before you assume. I only put a part of it and I'm already at $1355 with the case, hard drive, fans, and many more components not entered.

1. If you're paying 90 bucks for an operating system, you're a lost cause.
2. Your use of the word "funner." Come on man!

Modify these part lists to your desires, point is it's easily done. Especially if you check throughout the week for random sales and potential rebates on items. Also, never, ever, ever spend more than $25 on an operating system.

I'm not sure if you're joking or just doing a tryout for a clown show. One of your links shows a $0 price for the 1080. Another shows $280. Another shows $400 purchased from Craig's list. Thanks for the laughs- Keep them coming. 😄

Well if you knew how to add, you'd see that those prices were the cost of when they built the system. Whereas they'd be $550 less or more for situations that are missing the graphics card and other parts.

Windows for less than $80 involves either edu discounts through colleges or using gray market resellers, and those codes can get revoked.

Some (most?) of the prices on these lists are unavailable now. For example:
https://pcpartpicker.com/list/9yNw4C

Intel - Core i7-7700K 4.2GHz Quad-Core Processor $278.10

this CPU is $306 at B&H and that $400 video card, the cheapest price right now is $538. $0 for that SSD? Clicking on every item in that list I find a more expensive price by at least $15. Did that guide builder manually input those prices? Because you can't build that system right now for 1182.

One could definitely slickdeal together an equivalent build for much cheaper, but it'll take time waiting for sales and such.

I know it's fun to hate on pre-built gaming machines, but thanks to the cryptocurrency boom right now, it's almost surely not going to be cheaper to build your own i7 + 1080 desktop. Hardware prices (especially ram and GPU) have skyrocketed due to high demand and short supply. The advantage of building your own will be customization and that's about it. If you're deal hunting for each component, you're likely already not going to get your first choice parts, so that's a moot point.

If you're looking to save money, the best call is to wait this Etherium thing out.

I bought from ibuypower recently. At the time the cryptocurrency boom made the price pretty much equivalent. Great company!
