Do you need monitor, M/KB, audio as well or just a tower? For $2k you can build a pretty nice machine especially if you just need the tower.

Do you feel comfortable assembling yourself?

If not, i’d recommend NZXT NXT build.

re: Gaming Desktop Recommendations
I'm selling a machine without a GPU right now, will cut you a good deal on it. Brand new, never used. Still has plastic wrap on it. You can spend anywhere from 150-1500 on a GPU based on your son's needs, takes 2 seconds to put one in.

Lian Li case, 750W PSU, Gigabyte X570 Motherboard, Ryzen 7 3800X CPU, 500GB SSD and 2TB HDD, comes with keyboard and mouse and Watchdogs Legion

Even if you get a nice GPU and monitor, you'll still be well under $2k.

Hit me up. Carson.TD@yahoo.com

I got an NZXT at the beginning of all the covid shutdowns and its been great. When I went on Newegg to see what a custom build with similar specs would end up costing, it would've been about the same as the NZXT. For the same price, why not get the one thats already built, has Windows installed, and has a warranty.

That's a ripoff IMO.

I was looking at these because my son's friend has one and he wants the same. What model do you have?
