This customer’s order surprised us a little – weighing in at a little over $14,000 in total (includes 3x 34″ 3440×1440 G-Sync 144Hz monitors, a keyboard, and a mouse) with the PC costing over $9,000 by itself.
With the last many months bringing very noticeable price rises to PC hardware, creating hard hitting stock shortages, everyone in the industry has experienced a lower amount of orders than typical for the time of year, but with news that there’s no true end in sight, and rumours of continued price rises for the rest of 2018, this customer’s purchase made a lot of sense… No point waiting an entire year to buy your next PC when you can buy it now!
But, I hear you, what kind of specs do you get in a PC for $9k even?! Well, this particular customer didn’t have any questions for us before hand, and put together the following configuration that they ordered (only main components listed):
Asus X299 ROG STRIX X299-E, i7 7820X 8-core 4.3GHz, Corsair H110i, 64GB DDR4, Samsung 500GB 960 Evo M.2, Samsung 1TB 960 Evo M.2, 4TB HDD, 2x Asus GTX 1080 TI ROG STRIX, Blu-Ray writer, 1200W PSU.
This order is leaving our warehouse later today after being very safely wrapped up, then on board to our Queensland based customer who I’m sure is eagerly anticipating the arrival of their new toys.
