Anything better than Digital Storm's Vanquish level 4 for a prebuilt?

#1wheepitupPosted 2/28/2014 11:37:23 AM
It's tax time and i need a new PC, please don't suggest building it myself cause

A. I don't wanna bother with that, I need a working PC asap
B. It's not fun for me to build my own PC, I'd rather spend my time doing something else.

That being said

The vanquish is only about $40-50 more than building a rig to those specs yourself. Although I could probably spare an extra $200 to add to that price. So is there any other builders that compare or are they pretty much the best?

Nice username, I did a rough part lookup on newegg and the build i came up with was only $50 less and without the fancy case.

Eh, if you've done the research and that's what it came out to, there's nothing wrong with buying a prebuilt. It's just in cases like these they charge a premium for warranty, overclocking, cable management, etc.

But hey, like you said, the difference might be small. I just took a quick glance at the major components.

Do a search on Microcenter, if you have one near you. For what it's worth 50 bucks isn't a bad premium to pay for not dealing with building it yourself if your price figures are correct.

More and more, it feels like I'm doing a really bad impersonation of myself.

What price did you end up after your search? Maybe I picked the wrong parts. and yea i don't mind paying $100 for a warranty, the building, and cable management.

No Microcenter near me as I am in bum**** Wisconsin, so ordering the parts online would be my only option, and like i said, I really don't wanna deal with waiting for all the parts to ship, making sure none are DoA, building it, testing it, cable managing it, ect.

It's closer to about $300. You can do an i5 build with a 770 for around $1,000 usually, sometimes a bit over.

Just a quick look I came out to like 1200 minus a few things like optical drive and case. So it looks like it's a fair price at the sale price with 10% off *IF* you don't want to spend the time doing everything yourself.
