Great CPU w/ not that great graphics. The graphics will bottlenecking while playing in 2k144 or 4k60. I would rather suggest 9700K + 2070S/2080.

What are you taking about? Those are not going to bottle neck anything. There's isn't a single game they can't handle today. This PC is overkill.

edit. my bad didn't see you're talking about 4k, I agree, but this PC is a great deal for 1080p which is what most people play.

Unless you're doing heavy video rendering or photo editing, this is OVERKILL for basic office work.

You should be able to max out most 1080p games with a PC that costs less than this.

2070S is only 10% better than 2070, 2080 is only 15% better than 2070. With many games being cpu intensive I wouldn't want to make such a trade-off. For 144hz 4k gaming, the 2080 cost almost twice as much for a very small improvement, it's better to get two 2070s

So, got 1. It will make a great developer PC. Will upgrade the OS, and might upgrade the RAM in a year or so but looks solid other wise.
Was going to build about the same machine at $2100 with 64RAM but otherwise identical in spec. Even with 32ram cant find anything under 2k.

Not sure what kind of development you do but I'd be tempted to build your own with AMD 3950x (coming in September). That'll have 16 cores compare to 8.

Mostly Microsoft stack and java as well as Analytics and DW... with multiple sql instances. In general check out this link https://nickcraver.com/desktop-build/
That was close to what I was going to build. But the above is close enough...

PS I see a value in the AMD, but tired of waiting and the price is very competitive iimho.

In that case, I would definitely go with AMD since you'll get double the cores.

Probably , but I work full time, this will be a home dev machine and will be totally acceptable for the task, and as mentioned the price is very reasonable for the current market. The biggest issue with above is memory not cores.

This is more than enough. For me I still use $500 laptop that I got few years back. Installed Linux natively and just work on that.. I'll keep it going until it breaks.
