A monster. That’s the only way to accurately describe the iBUYPOWER TRACE941. A gamer’s paradise, this desktop is the enthusiast’s dream. Let’s take a look at what’s powering this behemoth.
CPU: Intel Hex Core i7-8700K, 3.7 GHz Base Clock, 4.7 GHz Boost Clock
Ram: 16 GB DDR4
GPU: Nvidia GTX 1080 8 GB
Cooling: Liquid Cooling System
Wireless Protocol: 802.11ac
Storage: 1 TB Hard Drive, 240 GB SSD
OS: Windows 10 Home 64
Power Supply: 600 Watt
– While $1,799.99 seems expensive, for everything included in the iBUYPOWER TRACE941 this price is PHENOMENAL. A desktop with these features would usually clear the $2,000+ price mark.
– This computer is a powerhouse that includes an i7-8700K, a GTX 1080, AND a liquid cooling system. While this desktop would produce some great overclocking* numbers, there’s really no need to overclock anything in this system (at least not in the near future).
– In the vast majority of games you’ll easily get 90+ frames per second in 1440p, and even smooth 60+ frames per second in many games in 4k.
– This system will produce a phenomenal gaming experience, but it’s also well equipped for content creators too.
– The 240 GB SSD is a really awesome bonus.
– The 600 W power supply is definitely sufficient, however if you’d like to add a second GTX 1080 down the line, you may want to look into upgrading the power supply.
– Since this desktop is geared towards enthusiasts who are either gamers or content creators, the 1 TB hard drive may fill up fairly quickly, so you may need to add another hard drive and/or SSD at some point.
While $1,799.99 is a high price point for most, this PC isn’t for “most.” This is an enthusiast’s PC. If you’re looking for a top tier PC for resolutions of 1440p and above, this is the PC for you. The price is more than right, and if you’re an enthusiast who can afford it, you will not be dissapointed.
