Is this that good of a price?
90 Day Returns. Buy now, think much, much later (like after BF!)

i5 9600k - $300
RAM - $100
Mobo - $150
AIO - $100
PSU - $70
SSD - $50
Case - $50

So like $1400 - $1500 ish if you build this yourself with the cheapest stuff around. I forgot to add the cost of the HDD and DVD.

This is pretty good for this price.
only that people mentioned the key components are proprietary ones. costco had this before BB, then BB and now again. they really wnat to get rid of this model?

Has there been any complaints so far? Genuinely curious, don't mean to doubt you.

i'd be hard pressed to value a 2070 at 600 with supers as low as 660. nvidia really priced out the non super cards.

Only complaints I've seen with the R8 are fan noise (but that might not be a factor with this one is liquid cooled), abnormal amount of ram being used when idle, and inconsistent temps/boots (GPU alignment might not be venting into the case side vents, but in a solid metal sheet between the vents instead)

Yes and no.
It's a fair price for the parts you get.
But you can build a better preformning system in that price range with Ryzen, RTX Super, or 5700

3600/2070S here and pretty much everything runs on ultra in 1440p@144 or 120 or even some in 4k@60

Gears 5, Wreckfest, Remnant, Forza, Fallout all look & runs good.

This is a good deal. Thanks OP!

don't know, just remind people of the concerns. i just pulled trigger. Given 90 days, if i can get a better deal on BF, i will just return it. too bad, 90 days not enough for boxing day.

I don’t think Netflix supports 2560p, better off getting 4k or 1080p monitor
