New to building desktop - Need help

edited June 2021 in Help Choosing Parts

Building machine for my office purpose. I run analytics so would need i7 11th gen and 32 GB ram, I can go with 500 GB SSD. My budget is 1000$. Do you have any suggestions on reducing the price. I have 3 1080p monitors. Any help is really appreciated.

    Hello @Gunner4230 and thanks for posting on the Microcenter Community Forum. You could reduce your price by not going with the I7-11700K cpu, the Gigibyte MOBO and the graphic card.

    Try going with the I7-9700K sku# 831438, the Asus Z390-P Prime LGA 1151 motherboard sku#826602 and NO pcie graphic card. Use the the onboard graphics.

    The intel 9700K was released in 2019 and has good processing speed.

    Otherwise the price you see for the Intel 11 gen processor is the best price for that type of build.
