One 1st place winner will receive a $200 gift card
I built my daughter her first PC and now I am jealous and want my own :-) The team at MicroCenter was amazing helping this lifelong Apple guy understand how to build a PC!
I want something with the fastest Alder Lake CPU available, and a fast video card:
Not only would this build look cool but it can handle just about anything you throw at it
My MicroCenter rig is about 5 years old and it's time for a DDR5 build. Video card will have to wait it seems.
It's something that doesn't hurt my wallet too much.
This is pretty much what my dream build would look like, which I'll probably work on once I get my hands on a GPU. I'd use it for everything from playing games to editing photos and videos.
This build, is the best build for money. Its my 1440p dream pc that isn't stupidly overpriced, but doesn't compromise on performance that much.
Sure it costs more than a new car -- but I'd use it more than a new car, too!!
I've always wanted a "balls to the wall" build and have no fear of ANY lag when I game, Stream, or hopefully get into any type of rendering work. Hopefully I can get this gift card so i can at least save some money and have my dreams fulfilled on my close to perfect computer. Thank you Microcenter for being such an awesome tech store, and I wish the contestants luck as well!
So my Build will be :
For those that don't want to click the link Specs are :
Intel Core i9 12900k
Corsair ICUE H150 Elite Capellix
G.SKILL Trident z5 32GB DDR5 5600mhz
Lian LI O11 Dynamic
ASUS ROG STRIX 850 WATT PSU
EVGA RTX 3080 FTW3
SAMSUNG QVO 4TB SSD
SAMSUNG 980PRO NVME SSD
SEAGATE 6TB BARRACUDA HDD
This is something not too crazy. Its a build I am planning on making this year so I can play games with my other. Should be a simple 1080p for now but be able to upgrade my gpu later on when things are hopefully more stable. I already have this same gpu so just saving up for the rest. Was trying to go for something not too expensive but still have a little bit of aesthetic to it and with a color of black and white. :)
I'm looking to replace my daily driver i7/7700K, 1080ti, 32GB system from 2017 with this:
It's a 12th Gen Intel build that is high-end, but isn't too extravagant. i9/12700K, DDR4 ASUS Z-690A, in a Corsair 5000D with a Corsair H150i AIO. The PSU is a 650W that will go into the i7/7700K build, and I will reuse the EVGA G3 850W I have in there for the 12th Gen build.
Took some time to build this. I think it is amazing!
Am loving this https://www.microcenter.com/site/content/asus-prebuild-recommendations.aspx?p=Intel&c=Ultimate
Ever since I was 10, I fell in love with gaming. After playing for a little, I got competitive. The only obstacle I had from going to the next stage of competing was my pc. For a while I could not upgrade my pc due to financial issues. After working hard, I finally was able to build a good pc to play on (bought the components from you guys). Since then, I was able to play competitive games in a way I have dreamed of for a long time. The build I posted below is the ultimate pc in my opinion. It has the looks and the performance. The gpu in this build, although out of stock, would have been a white 3080 to go with the theme of the build. I just want to thank microcenter for everything, so thank you microcenter.
I love gaming and graphic design. I wanted a computer that can play games for a while but also have great graphics. I love visually being apart of the game.
My last build was in 2016. 4 core AMD CPU, 16 GB RAM, and motherboard were $180 including tax. Now want an upgrade for USB 3.1, builtin WFI, and Windows 11 capable. Can't believe the increase in prices for low end system components with no gaming requirements. Now low end parts are over $500.
I hope the video card selection will improve in the near future, it would be nice to get a 3000 series card for a new build. A person might like to do a little 2K gaming. 👀 👽️ 🤖
My first build. I am going for the 6600 XT GPU since that is what is available. I have read it can handle 4K so I think i'll stick with it for now.
I want to build something that will work hard today and work hard tomorrow, without costing too much.
