Design Rationale

  • The i7-9700K gave the customer a good amount of single-core performance for gaming, and multicore performance for heavily-threaded tasks.
  • To ensure the CPU runs at full speed, air cooling with a single-tower cooler was recommended.
  • The customer wanted a stable motherboard with functionality for 2 internal capture cards.
  • The customer wanted at least 32GB of RAM, RGB was preferred for visual appeal.
  • The customer only wanted a single 1TB SSD.
  • For good VR gaming performance at the budget level, we recommended the RTX 2070.
  • The overall design of the build meant that a 650W power supply was recommended.
  • We used a mid-tower case to fit the build, white was preferred for visual appeal.
  • We used our default fans to ensure proper airflow and static pressure, black was preferred for visual appeal.
