This particular build showcases the efforts our techs will go to (without being asked) to create a theme that they pick up on from the components a customer orders for their build. This particular customer ordered red LED fans, and red PSU extension cables, so our tech selected red for the CPU cooler, and also changed the RGB case fans to red (front of case). The customer can of course change the RGB CPU cooler and RGB front case fans, but this out of the box experience is sure to catch the eye of our customer as soon as it powers on for the very first time in their home.

Okay, it’s not often we post a home/business/workstation PC as one of our featured builds, but we had to make an exception for this build. I think you’ll see why, and you’ll appreciate our decision.
As you may know, our PC is specially developed to allow true PC customising, but sometimes that just doesn’t cut it for customers with specialised requests – and for these customers we are happy to work with closely to come up with a truly one-off configuration to suit their needs. That’s what we’ve got here.

Sure, we’ve done PC builds with better motherboards, better CPUs, more RAM, more SSD storage, and even more GTX 1080 Tis per system… but this system represents a balance between “going all out” and “enough to get the job done”. At a price tag of just over $8,500 for the PC, we’re pretty certain that whatever machine our creation is replacing is going to feel pretty sad and neglected very soon.
If you have a special request for us that you can’t get done with our easy-to-use website, then we’d love to hear from you! Let us know, and we’ll work tirelessly with you until we have it ironed out.
We don’t get as many AMD builds as Intel builds, that’s no secret and no surprise since Intel is generally considered better at gaming – and Evatech is all about gaming. With that said, whenever we do get an AMD build requested by a customer, they usually go all out. This build is no exception.
Top of the line CPU & motherboard, a killer Corsair 240mm liquid cooler, 32GB of DDR4 RAM, our trusted Samsung 512GB M.2 NVMe SSD, a 4TB HDD, the current world’s best gaming graphics card; GTX 1080 TI OC, with a 1000W gold rated PSU, we imagine this customer plans to add more graphics cards in the future, but this is going to be more than enough for right now.

Not surprisingly, Origin and Steam both want you to play the games offered on their platforms – so why is this news?
Origin has launched “Origin Access Premier”, which is the more premium version of their still available “Origin Access Basic”. So what’s the difference? We thought you’d ask.
The general consensus seems to be that if you see yourself purchasing two or more titles from EA (on PC) per year, this makes sense. One potential deal-breaker is that once you stop the subscription, the titles become unavailable to you unless you’ve utilised that 10% discount to buy it outright.
A monthly subscription could be a better fit for those who go hard at a particular game for a few weeks and then are unlikely to play it again because you’re busy with other titles.
Steam Flash Sales are coming back?!
Numerous sources over the last few days are reporting rumours that they’re returning, last seen some time in 2016 before Valve put an end to it.
Reportedly there is a slight twist to it, game developers can opt for the sale to last 6, 8, 10, or 12 hours.
So, with all that said, is your PC cut out for the latest and greatest games that are now more affordable than ever? If not, contact our helpful staff to see what upgrades you can get your hands on, or hit up our website for an entirely new custom gaming PC which will see you gaming for many years to come.
All we can say is, good luck to wallets/bank accounts around the world.
Sporting Ryzen’s 2nd generation of CPU and motherboard, this customer went for the top of the range Ryzen 7 2800X which is an 8-core 4.3GHz, cooled by a 240mm (2x 120mm) liquid cooler! The graphics card in question is Nvidia’s more than adequate GTX 1070 TI.
This build sure looks impressive, and has quite a bit of performance punch to back it up. We’re sure our NSW based customer will be very happy with the performance and looks of the system.
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):
We don’t usually post about games that were released 10 years ago, buuuut had to make an exception when Electronic Arts announced that Burnout Paradise would be getting a remastered release for current-gen consoles, followed by a PC release later this year, all in (up to) glorious 4K graphics.
It could be better news, it could be a new Burnout title entirely, but I’m sure many nostalgic gamers will welcome a straight up remastering that cannot be held victim to any butchering, and just promise some quality gameplay and a walk down memory lane. Speaking of, screenPLAY did their thoughts on the announcement over on YouTube, as well as some other discussions of games being remastered or re-imagined…
The game will reportedly include all the DLC from the original title.
While it’s not the most expensive PC we’ve ever built, it is just enough to make it the new most expensive PC of this year. Coming in at $11,500 this is sure to make our NSW based customer extremely happy for years to come. No expense was spared when it came to the items that really count when it comes to performance.
It has the best Intel CPU; an i9 18 core at up to 4.4GHz costing just under $3,000 itself, 128GB of DDR4 RAM; the most a consumer grade PC can have right now, a healthy 1TB of SSD storage in the lightening fast M.2 format opposed to the slower SATA, and then not one but two of the best Nvidia gaming graphics cards; GTX 1080 TI OC.
We trust that no matter the task, this PC is more than capable of completing it in the best possible way. But now onto the pictures! We wanted to showcase how RGB lights can really give a build a different look and character to match whatever your mood or environment. Enjoy.
