I was tasked to pick out a PC for a family friends son. Typically, I would buy the parts and build it for him, but he’s a few states away and im in a cast for a few months, so ive found two prebuilts. Money isnt in the equation, though i have some concerns that id like some feedback on. The first is https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16883102512 at 1500usd (1080ti, 8700k, 16gb 2666, 240 ssd) He was really interested in this one, but i had concerns about the temps on the 8700k. I have a coolermaster 212 evo here that I told him I would mail him if it was acceptable for the CPU. The second PC will be on sale for BF at 1099usd. https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16883230377&nm_mc=AFC-C8Junction&cm_mmc=AFC-C8Junction-_-na-_-na-_-na&cm_sp=&AID=11892370&PID=4328635&SID= 2700x, 1080, 8gb 2400 ram, 240 ssd My concern with that one is the GPU. Ive read some pretty poor reviews on the MSI Aero 1080 about running hot as well and being a “lesser” quality than other manufacturers. Any insight on which PC would better suit his needs would be appreciated. Im trying to weigh the pros and cons, and have some knowledge, but not enough to feel comfortable picking one out for him. Hes wanting to game 1440 at 144hz, so take that into consideration. Thank you.
