Not counting the $7.33 over before mail-in-rebates and for transparency reasons we'll say this build is for 1080p Ultra settings.

Could probably cut the 850 EVO SSD from 500 GB down to 250 GB and shave off $50, which can warrant an aftermarket CPU cooler or can buy a used HDD to throw in. Personally, Ryzen stock cooler is good enough and I would rather have a 500GB SSD. Could probably dumb down the PSU too to a lower wattage and save some money, but I just went with a G2 550 since EVGA PSUs have been what I've used for years with no problems.

Edit: Not sure if we had to include an OS or not, if so, I have some at home - if that still doesn't suffice, I can edit the build.

spend the extra on RGB because you know. RGB.

980 was the cheapest on ebay at the time, you could easily swap the case, for a focus G or a mastercase, and swap for a 1060 if you wanted newegg pricing only.

Alternatively, I built a nice iPhone X desktop equivalent! Who needs disgusting corporate shilling devices when you can have a superior self-built mobile (ish) device!

pcpartpicker.com/list/9BJQkT

For the low price of $832, it includes but isn't limited to (Unlike your disgusting sheeple device);

  • A 6 core AMD Processor
  • 3GB of Memory
  • 64GB ssd storage
  • A sleek, minimalistic design case
  • 4k UHD display
  • Full HD and 4k capable webcam and camera for all your nsa and selfie needs
  • A fairly subpar yet adequate power device!
  • And of course no CD Rom because media support and external devices are for


Protip: throw in another Webcam for the full Dual-Camera iphone experience!

Just like your iPhone X

Do I even need to add /s ?

Depends what you're trying to achieve with the $1000 really. If it's for gaming and you already have a 1080p monitor, or maybe even 1440p;

Total: $999.51

or if you really want as much performance in games as possible and are using something better than a 1080p60Hz monitor;

Although, it would really be worth waiting for Coffee Lake instead of getting a 7600k, or just going with Ryzen since although an R5 1600 will lose to a 7600k in gaming performance, the R5 is a better overall chip.

Same as first system, but with R5 1600 instead. Extra $40 could go towards a nicer GPU and/or motherboard.

Or maybe you want to get a nice monitor and will only use the system for basic tasks and/or light gaming;

Delta leafblower goes on the CPU cooler.
DO NOT connect it to a header on the board. The fan will draw too much and kill the built-in fan controller, so connect it directly to the power supply.
Fan that comes with the cooler goes on the motherboard VRM with zip-ties.
A case would only make it run hotter.
Overclock it a lot.
