Aren't the target market for these gaming rigs savvy enough to put together one for themselves?

Branded labels make sense when they either have something unique not easily reproduced or the scale of production makes them much cheaper than putting one together, so the only reason to build would be to get something that you don't with commoditized brand line up unless paid a lot.

This one is way overpriced from the standard BOM even without scrounging around for deals.

Do Intel based deals ring a bell at AMD Fire Brigade or something? They seem to come scrambling down the pole. laugh out loud

Nah, this is just insanely overpriced for a non hyperthreaded processor.

Why when you can turn it off and boost the core -- 9600k will go to 5.1 without issue with proper cooling.

The only people who use that hyperthreading talking point whether it applies or not are the AMD cult. Smilie

This is overpriced but not because it has no hyperthreading CPU.

I already said why above.

BOM cost of this unit even with retail purchase is less than the deal price with no unique or difficult construction. When these brands sell pre-configured builds like these, when on sale, they are typically priced below the retail BOM cost. The margins over the wholesale cost of components to them is more than sufficient to make it attractive and not have to price it at a premium to retail BOM. Look for gaming systems from Lenovo for example. Or standard desktops from Dell or HP.

Unless, this company is a one-man operation building one at a time in the basement...

I kinda agree this is a bit overpriced for the specs. 999$ would be better.

hey speaking for someone who def isn't the target.... I'm looking to get my 11 year old a starter gaming computer to play mostly fornite and a few others. Any suggestions for a quick build or a good place to start. Haven't seen too many "put together" options on SD.Any help would be amazing. Obviously don't need alienware or high-end specs. Enough to make him happy when he opens the box and keep him happy when he plays.

I did same and couldn't build this system for under $1000. The processor and the gpu themselves already cost $600.

Are you serious? The cpu is available right now at B&H for $175. It is regularly priced these days around $195 on Amazon and eBay (new)

The single-fan RTX 2060 (which is what is on this build) keeps coming up for less than $300 at Newegg.

You can buy a much better dual fan MSIs for another $30 or so.

Go to pcpartpicker.com and build an equivalent system choosing the cheapest comparable.

My suggestion would be to web search for budget gaming builds and you will get plenty of ready to build configurations.

Use pcpartpicker.com to create a virtual build and estimate costs and/or find alternatives.
