CyberPowerPC 3700X 5700XT Liquid Cooled Gaming PC 16GB RAM 1TB SSD $1200

$1,200.00
+12 Deal Score
33,130 Views

Ryzen 7 3700X
AMD Radeon RX 5700 XT
16GB RAM
1TB NVME SSD
CPU Liquid Cooling
ASRock's B550AM motherboard (not a real B550, but has one PCIE4.0)

Not the best price for 3700X + 5700XT PC historically. But given inflated price and limited stock of many pc components at the moment, this should come roughly equal or cheaper than building from parts.

So now we are just posting computers at their regular price and it is a slick deal?

BB has had this system for several months now and it has _ALWAYS_ been $1199.99. I bought it from BB on 5/8/20 for this price.

I bought one too! Hope it goes well. The only negative reviews on BB website is that people have noticed connector issues and miscellaneous things that didn't work on arrival. FYI.

This PC honestly should have more RAM. 16GB is the default amount for i5 or Ryzen5, Ryzen 7 should be rolling with 32GB, but not a bad price.
This statement has no basis in fact — your RAM needs are highly dependent on what you'll be doing with your computer. For %99 of people (including gamers), 16GB of RAM will be more than enough for this build.

That is like saying I need more gas in my car as I want to go faster.

CPU speed has nothing to do with RAM. The amount of RAM needed is dependent on application usage. I could have a Ryzen 7 and use a web browser only. I could have about 100 tabs open with 16GB and not see a change in performance.

I'm not sure if you are understanding how RAM works to actually be talking like that.

May I ask what would YOU use 32gb of ram for?

Does BB typically have stock issues with Custom PCs?

I've wanted this particular PC for a while. Unfortunately, I myself am not the one purchasing, and when the person who is goes to check it's Sold Out - but it keeps coming back... then going OOS again... then coming back............... etc.

the website says regular SSD.

NOT NVME SSD

"1TB solid state drive (SSD)
While offering less storage space than a hard drive, a flash-based SSD has no moving parts, resulting in faster start-up times and data access, no noise, and reduced heat production and power draw on the battery."

Expanding the specifications tab at the bottom, it does say that the Solid State Drive Interface is NVMe.

My birthday month - when did they start giving 10% off for birthdays?
I was looking for ways to get this 10% birthday discount from Best Buy but then I found this sad response from Best Buy from November 2018:

"birthday coupons are sent out to a random selection of customers once a month, for birthdays in the following month. The coupons are valid for the month of your birthday. However, not everyone with a listed birthday is guaranteed a coupon."
