Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

2 years no interest if you use a BestBuy credit card.

Although IBuyPower sells desktops on their own website, this particular rig is only sold at BestBuy.

iBUYPOWER - Gaming Desktop - Intel i9-10900K - 16GB Memory - NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2070 Super 8GB - 1TB SSD

https://www.bestbuy.com/site/ibuypower-gaming-desktop-intel-i9-10900k-16gb-memory-nvidia-geforce-rtx-2070-super-8gb-1tb-ssd/6419490.p?skuId=6419490

 

Tom's Hardware: "However, provided you have adequate cooling, the Core i9-10900K is unquestionably the fastest gaming processor on the market."

https://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/intel-core-i9-10900k-cpu-review

The computer at BestBuy is watercooled..

(so far the user reviews at BestBuy are great. BestBuy only started selling it a week ago or so.

The questions I have with buying a pre-built computer are questions of components.  Are all the components standard sizes and standard connectors or are they proprietary?  Gateway and Dell used to sell nice computers, but so many of their components were of a proprietary size and aftermarket replacements often did not fit.  Also, the quality of the components.

The specs are light on details such as ram type, power supply, cooler size, motherboard specs, etc. but I'm having a hard time trying to piece together parts for a system to self build cheaper than this since I'm having a hard time finding the i9 10900 in stock.  The cheapest in stock price I can find for the CPU is $790 and the 2070 super is $499 for just those two parts.

Edit. Found 10900 in stock for $479 but this is still a good deal if you don't like to build your own PCs.

Second Edit. The above is for 10900(no k). Still can't find the k model in stock for less than $790.

I bought one from this vendor at Costco many years ago; junk.

Returned it after one week.

I bought a very nice iBuyPower gaming PC from Costco a couple of months ago during a $400 off deal and so far it has been great. Also, with Costco’s four year extended warranty (just for purchasing with their Visa card) it was a no brainer.

Cheers, Pete

After considering the one above, I bought a cheaper PC. It was even cheaper ($1150).

TMRIIRG... 2 days ago all same day ready to ship (RDY) were $50 off, so was $1100 even ($500 cheaper than the one above).

 So far no stutters. but display is only 1920x1080 and fs2020 graphics is set to one from the highest (i.e. one under Ultra), flying from Seattle main airport which is not ultra dense scenery, on a new computer with zero bloat (literally it shipped to me with nothing on the system but drivers and Wiindows). I don't know the framerate display key yet, only had the simulation for one hour. But it's going to run well in my opinion.

The 6 cores all stay really cool (under 60C so far). Yeah even this cheapie is watercooled. Thermaltake 600 watt PSU (non modular), ASUS Prime B450M-A motherboard. 2700 Super GPU, Ryzen5 3600 cpu. The automatic overclocking (automatic turbo) has has kept the cpu speed between  4.100 to 4.200 GHz (never lower than that as reported by CoreTemp). You can overclock it manually in BIOS but the limit is 4.2 Ghz and it has been running at about that speed anyways, so I didn't do that. If the heat rises (it might in heavier scenery areas), then the cpu speed would drop possibly all the way down to 3.6 Ghz which is the lower limit base speed on a Ryzen5 3600 (non K). (All Ryzen 3rd generation are overclockable, even the non K's).

i9-10900K throws out lots of heat compared to other cpus.

Ryzen5 3600 is 7 nano thin archetecture and throws less heat than any other gaming cpu that I know of.

Both systems use the same fans and cooling (I think). That's another reason I took the cheaper route.

I can't edit or remove the above 2 posts of mine so I will add...

The IbuyPower with i9-10900K is probably a great machine.

The one with the Ryzen5 3600 turns out is weak in framertes but by reducing LOD sliders to about 80 instead of 200, and then using "high end" settings in all else,  it gets 30 fps most places and is stutter free.

I don't think there has been anything proprietary in DECADES, save for some apple stuff...
