Design Rationale

  • The Ryzen 7 3800X gave the customer a great amount of single-core performance for VR gaming, and multicore performance for heavily-threaded tasks.
  • To ensure the CPU runs at full speed, air cooling with a single-tower cooler is recommended.
  • The customer wanted a stable motherboard with a good amount of desktop functionality.
  • The customer wanted at least 16GB of RAM, 32GB was an easy upgrade.
  • The customer was fine with our default storage setup.
  • We recommended the RTX 2080 Super for gaming performance.
  • The overall design of the build meant that a 850W power supply was recommended.
  • We used a white version of our default mid-tower case to fit the build.
  • We used our default fans to ensure proper airflow and static pressure.

Customer Review

“Lightning storms and flooding took out the stream but didn’t stop them from building my PC on schedule. Chris Johnson in sales went especially above and beyond for me.

Wish these guys the best, they’ve got a great thing going so far.”
