    so i go to their website and look at the "Deluge A2" build with an rtx 2080... they charge $3217.19... I put the EXACT same parts into PC Part picker and the total only comes out to $1882.86.... They're almost doubling the price of these builds, which are ugly as hell... Just to make a profit off of people who dont want to build it themselves... smh.

    Been a pc builder for 6 months at a company at an internship. I actually got told to work faster and less check details to get the PCs out the door (before [x] time ordered, next day delivery). They legit used zipties to tie the PCI cable to the 24pin in order to keep it suspended. And sometimes even white zipties

    Its very easy money if your more than happy to scam people. If you want to give people the best part's/service it is dam hard to make it.

    Good point with "throw in a quad core" why care about a 2600x at this time, when the 3200G performance about the same in single to quad core for quite some less money. So safe some bugs to spent on better graphics, go for the 3200G instead (less power consumption as well) and wait until it´s bigger brothers get cheaper next year or the year after, when new gens arrived.
