If you’re in the market for a brand new gaming PC, check out the ABS Gladiator on sale at Newegg. Combine an AMD Ryzen 5 5600X processor with a hard-to-find Nvidia GeForce RTX 3070 for $ 1,699.99. Given that the GPU usually gets € 1,000 or more on eBay, this is a good price for a full gaming computer.
It’s also a reflection of the market we’re in, where GPUs are incredibly scarce. The system is currently on sale for $ 300 below its list price of $ 1,999.99. Part by part (including the cost of a Windows license), the discounted price is about $ 200 more than it would take to build the same system with your own hands and knuckles.

This gaming computer combines a Zen 3 processor with an Ampere GPU, both connected to a premium X570 motherboard. It’s a good top-down gaming platform, and with the current discount, it’s not much more than what it would cost to build it yourself (if the GPUs were in stock, that is).See offer
In normal times, we look for pre-built deals that affect the DIY rate. But these are not normal times and a $ 200 premium is not blatant; consider it a labor cost, if you will. It also helps to have a full gaming PC.
He 5600X is a 6-wire / 12-wire CPU based on AMD's state-of-the-art Zen 3 architecture and is located on an Asus TUF Gaming X570-Plus Wi-Fi motherboard. It's nice to see that ABS opted for a top-quality chipset and, from this generation, until boot (it's not uncommon for system builders to download hardware from the pre-built generation, such as an X470 motherboard ).
Other specifications include 16 GB (2 x 8 GB) of DDR4-3000 RAM, a 1 TB NVMe SSD and a 700 W 80 Plus Gold power supply. I wish ABS had a slightly faster RAM (3200-3600), but DDR4-3000 isn't exactly slow and the capacity is at the ideal point to play.
Given the demand for GPUs at the moment, there is a risk that it will sell quite quickly. That doesn’t mean you have to make a hasty decision, but it’s something to keep in mind if you’re on the fence.
