CPU $270
GPU $500
RAM $80
SSD + HDD $80
PSU $40
(priced reasonably/currently, not priced where you have to search for months to find)

Leaves $230 for mobo, case, heatsink, fans, OS, keyboard, mouse, and two games (a lot of these are extraneous, I know).

depending on the quality of the mobo/case, this could be a solid deal, ESPECIALLY for those who don't want to build their own and want to consolidate the warranty into one company.

i am fully expecting some thumbs down, since this is a debatable topic, but just giving my two cents on what i believe is realistic.

btw memory is 2666mhz, i know ryzen cpus are more sensitive to the clock speed.

Specifications say B350, so it must either be Gigabyte Aorus or MSi Tomahawk as what my searching around generally pulls up for these. It sucks that components are a lottery with prebuilt pcs but that is the sacrifice you make when you buy these ibuypower.

The problem with those MSi and Gigabyte B350 motherboards is that the Ryzen 7 2700X is a strong cpu that needs a good vrm to use the full extent of its power. I know Gigabyte doesn't have real 8 or 10 phase vrm (or even a real heatsink for said VRM) on anything but their X470 motherboards so RIP anyone who gets Gigabyte. MSi I'm not sure as their website says nothing about it on their B350 boards.

One might say that being concerned over vrm is just for overclockers, but the ryzen cpus need them much like they need fast clock speed ram to work most efficiently, especkally the ryzen 7 2700x.

I call my 2700 my little princess because I had to put more effort and money down to get good parts so it can do it's best. A powerhungry cpu like the 2700X is worse and we all know ibuypower skimped on the part quality to make the pc as flashy as possible.

One might say, "well the pc works and that's all that matters", but then you are faced with a throttled pc with high temperatures and overall lesser efficiency to someone who purchased and assembled a pc themselves. If you're going to spend $1200 on a pc, you're going to want it to run right and run for a long time. At this point you want to ask yourself, can I build a better pc for $1200? Yes.

For everyone else who doesnt care about lesser efficiency, this is a good deal.

2666 memory. I thought Ryzens work the best with 3000+?

I bought an i5 / rx580 version last year.
Ended up overheating in 3 months and fried the optane speed drive.

Replaced motherboard & added aio water cooler (plus upgraded CPU because good $deal)
Runs stellar now.

Just my 2 cents on an ibuy pc....

I think he meant minute details, which is quite literally synonymous with minutia.

Cute effort though, however ironic.

Great deal for a ready made gaming rig. Memory looks like Sammy b die as well.
