Honest question, what's the point of such an incredibly expensive computer? Unless you're absolutely riddled with money this just seems like such an unnecessary expense when a $2000 computer could run probably anything available?

Hmm, could've added the extra $100 and went with the aftermarket GTX1080ti. For example, this: amazon link, because the stock cooler is thermal throttling. Source: youtube link
edit: nvm watercooling lul

But overall this is a very nice PC you're building.

Umm because I'm not building a laptop? :kappa:

Well for i9 processors, it will only benefit gamer like me just a little bit more fps so it's not really worth the 50%-250% more money over the one I bought unless you're some kind of content creator which Im not one of them.

I still can't decide whether to buy a Headphone($399) or a speaker set($748)
If you guys prefer headphone over speaker or vise versa please let me know by voting up top. I will definitely go with you guys and buy the one that have the most voted on.

Speaker set 100% but tbh I don’t think its a good idea to send that much money on speakers.


Unreliable  Question:-
Asus (i7 7th gen / gtx 1050 / 1tb + 256GB / 16 GB ram)
Or
Acer (i7 7th gen / gtx 1060 / 1tb + 256GB / 16 GB ram)

Using  common sense acer is better. However alot of people sue acer products and reviews on the asus are amazing...
