nicely done. well, they’ve got to make something off the deal…
$173 is probably a fair price for those who don’t like to build their own and want some technical support
I replied to similar on another thread but I’ll tackle the matter here again. This is really good info, this time it looks like at the higher price point the differential lies at about $173 as mentioned by @bobdo. When it comes to the current market pricing, PCPartPicker has us beat again!
So far, it seems like PCPartPicker’s deal has the upper hand, but I’ll try to address some of the differences and offerings here. Disclaimer: I am not saying this justifies any cost difference, I will leave that up to you guys to decide!
The graphics card is specifically the MSI GTX1080 8GB ARMOR overclocked version coming in Black & White & DirectX 12 VR Ready. (This boils down to a preference).
The RAM uses 2400 MHz memory over the more common 2133 counterpart. Although on a user level, the difference may seem minuscule, it is still worth noting.
The motherboard is actually the higher end Z170A SLI PLUS model version with much more upgrade-ability features and expansion down the line. Also, we use the 700W PSU on this system to account for those upgrades!
And of course, this comes prebuilt with Quality Assurance, Tech Support, and a 1-Year Fully Covered Parts & Labor Warranty as well as optimized for performance (no bloatware, only absolutely necessary software installed).
Hope this clears up some of the micro level differences between the 2 setups. It may or may not be the determining factors for ya’ll Wooters BUT I hope at least it fills in those few puzzle pieces :).
