Community Article Who were NVIDIA targeting?|NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060 Ti — Micro Center Computers Computer Parts Custom PC Builder DIY/ Maker {$smarty.capture.menu} Activity Categories Discussions Computers Computer Parts Custom PC Builder DIY/ Maker Home › Graphics Cards Who were NVIDIA targeting?|NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060 Ti Lateral Rockville ✭ December 2020 in Graphics Cards So we've probably all wondered by now why NVIDIA is selling such good performance for such a low price with the 3060 Ti. Well here's the answer. According to sales research, most people who used to own RTX 2060/Ss and new builders are the people who are buying them the most other than scalpers and crypto-miners. This show's that NVIDIA is actually struggling a bit because of AMD's recent cards so they were desperate to sell and they made it very affordable. Leaked prices before the brought them out was $449.99. Not $399.99, like they are. So these are the people they were targeting, budget builders. I hope this mini article was informational to ya'll.

The cards come in each week but in a limited quantity.  Sometimes the store will get like 30 units and once 30 vouchers are passed out, the card are gone. The best way to get one of the cards is to visit the store multiple days a week, especially before it opens. So that you can at least have a change to get a 3060 or 3000 voucher. Beware there are lines each morning at the store.  0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Categories 6.5K All Categories 999 The Blog 29 What's Trending 158 How to & Technical Guides 8 Computer Hardware 118 Software 3 Home Office 5 Networking Audio/Visual 2 Home Automation 15 3D Printers 7 Maker 14 PC Build Guides 77 Reviews & Buying Guides 25 Build Showcase 13 Contests 35 Past Contests 728 The Community 1.7K General Discussion 104 New Members 68 Consumer Tech 19 Prebuilt PCs and Laptops 72 Software 2 Audio/Visual 11 Networking & Security 1 Home Automation 2 Digital Photography 3 Content Creators 21 Hobby Boards & Projects 22 3D Printing 46 Retro Arcade/Gaming 78 All Other Tech 1.2K Store Information and Policy 48 Off Topic 5 Community Ideas & Feedback 110 Your Completed Builds 2.6K Build-Your-Own PC 1.6K Help Choosing Parts 218 Graphics Cards 157 CPUs, Memory, and Motherboards 61 Cases and Power Supplies 19 Air and Liquid Cooling 11 Monitors and Displays 28 Peripherals 6 All Other Parts 20 Featured Categories We love seeing what our customers build Submit photos and a description of your PC to our build showcase Submit Now Looking for a little inspiration?

Waffler Cleveland, OH ✭ November 2020 in Graphics Cards I know NVIDIA has yet to put out the official word on a 3060 Ti, but it's basically the worst kept secret in the industry right now. That being said, is there *any* word on when this will drop? Rumors point to Dec. 2. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Comments Lateral Rockville ✭ November 2020 They canceled the 3060. They decided to go differently and have their base model as 70 and not 60 unlike previous years. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook LandShark admin November 2020 @Waffler I haven't heard anything official but I did see some leaks from the other side of the globe that mentioned Dec. 2. Completely speculation here but that would make sense to me since AMD is releasing the 6900 XT on Dec. 8th. It seems NVIDIA is trying to sprinkle their releases all around AMD releases. I'm interested in the price to performance. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook everrest ✭ December 2020 The GeForce RTX 3060 Ti, the first member of the RTX 3060 family, is coming December 2nd. Faster than the $699 RTX 2080 SUPER, and beating the RTX 2060 SUPER by an average of 40%, the new $399 RTX 3060 Ti is a tremendous addition to the GeForce RTX 30 Series. https://www.nvidia.com/en-us/geforce/news/geforce-rtx-3060-ti-out-december-2/ 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Categories 6.5K All Categories 999 The Blog 29 What's Trending 158 How to & Technical Guides 8 Computer Hardware 118 Software 3 Home Office 5 Networking Audio/Visual 2 Home Automation 15 3D Printers 7 Maker 14 PC Build Guides 77 Reviews & Buying Guides 25 Build Showcase 13 Contests 35 Past Contests 728 The Community 1.7K General Discussion 104 New Members 68 Consumer Tech 19 Prebuilt PCs and Laptops 72 Software 2 Audio/Visual 11 Networking & Security 1 Home Automation 2 Digital Photography 3 Content Creators 21 Hobby Boards & Projects 22 3D Printing 46 Retro Arcade/Gaming 78 All Other Tech 1.2K Store Information and Policy 48 Off Topic 5 Community Ideas & Feedback 110 Your Completed Builds 2.6K Build-Your-Own PC 1.6K Help Choosing Parts 218 Graphics Cards 157 CPUs, Memory, and Motherboards 61 Cases and Power Supplies 19 Air and Liquid Cooling 11 Monitors and Displays 28 Peripherals 6 All Other Parts 20 Featured Categories We love seeing what our customers build Submit photos and a description of your PC to our build showcase Submit Now Looking for a little inspiration?

Also, the same people line up every day to get cards. Can't you stop this nonsense? Is anything enforced? https://www.ebay.com/itm/AsRock-AMD-Rx6900XT-/303801566594?hash=item46bbfc0582:g:7FcAAOSwwoRfz8NO&LH_BIN=1&autorefresh=true&nma=true&si=g3g6JgNTEvUp9NjTWDWGUsDrU0g%3D&orig_cvip=true&nordt=true&rt=nc&_trksid=p2047675.l2557 1 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Comments JoeyTheAsian ✭ December 2020 edited December 2020 The situation with the Brooklyn Micro center 6900xt launch is most likely more nefarious than just this one person coincidentally being able to buy 2 cards.  The 8 people that lined up over 16 hours before the launch of the 6900xt were told by one of the managers on premise at 8pm on 12/7 "The delivery truck is delayed to Wednesday. The cards will arrive Wednesday. (12/9)" which was false information. Information that the 5 cards eventually arrived around mid-day became disseminated on discord once the cards sold out and the people on line the previous day arrived around 1-2pm on launch day (12/8) at MC to find out that they had been sold out already.  It is likely that the person in the mentioned ebay listing is conspiring with or is themselves, one of the staff at micro center to be able to get multiple cards on launch day in this fashion. If you look deeper into their listings, they also have TWO 3060 TI's listed for sale. BOTH were listed on launch day, and one was even listed at 12/2 7:22 AM which is BEFORE the 9am launch time/opening time of micro center that day.  EVGA Geforce RTX 3060 Ti FTW3 | eBay Geforce RTX 3060 ti Founder Edition (ebay.com) As one of the customers that was on that line the day before launch and fed false information regarding the inventory arriving on Wednesday resulting in my inability to get the product I would like for micro center to at least investigate this highly suspect situation.  0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Compgeek ✭ December 2020 edited December 2020 Unfortunately, it is not Brooklyn store only - yesterday I was in Tustin CA and asked if it is ever possible to buy 3090 card not from a scalper. Sales person told me it is random, I need to come early in the morning and stay in line (during the CA Covid lockdown order time). Surprisingly I saw two! 3090 cards on eBay bought in Microcenter today! - a scalper purchased them at 1pm - pretty funny story. I believe there is some kind of collaboration - practically impossible to prove it though.  0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook TSTonyV admin December 2020 edited December 2020 Thank you for bringing this to our attention. I'll pass this along on my end here so we can check into this.  Unfortunately no system is perfect and it's impossible to completely prevent any scalpers from being able to buy cards from us, but obviously we want to do whatever we're able to prevent it from happening or avoid repeat offenders. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Categories 6.5K All Categories 999 The Blog 29 What's Trending 158 How to & Technical Guides 8 Computer Hardware 118 Software 3 Home Office 5 Networking Audio/Visual 2 Home Automation 15 3D Printers 7 Maker 14 PC Build Guides 77 Reviews & Buying Guides 25 Build Showcase 13 Contests 35 Past Contests 726 The Community 1.7K General Discussion 104 New Members 67 Consumer Tech 18 Prebuilt PCs and Laptops 72 Software 2 Audio/Visual 11 Networking & Security 1 Home Automation 2 Digital Photography 3 Content Creators 21 Hobby Boards & Projects 22 3D Printing 46 Retro Arcade/Gaming 78 All Other Tech 1.2K Store Information and Policy 48 Off Topic 5 Community Ideas & Feedback 110 Your Completed Builds 2.6K Build-Your-Own PC 1.6K Help Choosing Parts 218 Graphics Cards 157 CPUs, Memory, and Motherboards 61 Cases and Power Supplies 19 Air and Liquid Cooling 11 Monitors and Displays 28 Peripherals 6 All Other Parts 20 Featured Categories We love seeing what our customers build Submit photos and a description of your PC to our build showcase Submit Now Looking for a little inspiration?

I placed my name on the wait list and come to find out, within a few weeks I received my notification for the EVGA 3060 Ti X dual fan. I was shocked at the price that was given to me of $649.99.....😮 This GPU is listed on EVGA's website for $469.99. I thought Microcenter followed the manufacturers MSRP? Please correct me if I'm wrong, but this price for the dual fan X card, is more than the FTW Ultra gaming at EVGA, by over $100. I get the fact they are in demand, but MC has been steady with prices on CPU's, but is this correct? https://www.microcenter.com/search/search_results.aspx?N=&cat=&Ntt=303883&searchButton=search Ouch. Please advise. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Comments Ian admin August 17 Greetings. The pricing we would have at Micro Center is competitive to market pricing. However, I am seeing the EVGA card in reference listed by us at $469.99: https://www.microcenter.com/product/631927/evga-geforce-rtx-3060-ti-xc-gaming-dual-fan-8gb-gddr6-pcie-40-graphics-card 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Steve1671 ✭ August 17 Thanks for the reply, I want to speculate that link you listed is for an old sku? The item number I have is 303883, which is $649.  I don't understand your point on "market" price, the manufacturer is selling them as they arrive on their wait list for the price currently on their site.....of $469.  So IMHO, you are $190 over "market". 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Ian admin August 18 Hello. It is not an old SKU. When it is in stock at our stores, it is $469.99. That is the card you described as being available on EVGA's website for $469.99. SKU 303883 is a different model of card made by MSI. From a quick search on MSI's website, it is listed at $629.99 but it is out of stock. https://us-store.msi.com/index.php?route=product/product&path=75_76_246&product_id=944 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Categories 6.5K All Categories 999 The Blog 29 What's Trending 158 How to & Technical Guides 8 Computer Hardware 118 Software 3 Home Office 5 Networking Audio/Visual 2 Home Automation 15 3D Printers 7 Maker 14 PC Build Guides 77 Reviews & Buying Guides 25 Build Showcase 13 Contests 35 Past Contests 728 The Community 1.7K General Discussion 104 New Members 68 Consumer Tech 19 Prebuilt PCs and Laptops 72 Software 2 Audio/Visual 11 Networking & Security 1 Home Automation 2 Digital Photography 3 Content Creators 21 Hobby Boards & Projects 22 3D Printing 46 Retro Arcade/Gaming 78 All Other Tech 1.2K Store Information and Policy 48 Off Topic 5 Community Ideas & Feedback 110 Your Completed Builds 2.6K Build-Your-Own PC 1.6K Help Choosing Parts 218 Graphics Cards 157 CPUs, Memory, and Motherboards 61 Cases and Power Supplies 19 Air and Liquid Cooling 11 Monitors and Displays 28 Peripherals 6 All Other Parts 20 Featured Categories We love seeing what our customers build Submit photos and a description of your PC to our build showcase Submit Now Looking for a little inspiration?

I noticed that my RAM was hitting max usages of 90%+ most nights of gaming/streaming. So, I bought x2 additional sticks of the same 8gb sticks that I have been using for years. Upgrading from 16gb to 32gb. When I insert the x2 new sticks, my motherboard has an orange/yellow light that I believe means that there is an issue with the RAM and it will not boot. I reset the x2 new stick and no luck. I took out 1 stick (so now using 3) and it boots up just fine! I replace that 1 with the other new 1 and it boots up again. Repeat the process in the unused RAM slot and everything works when I use 3 sticks, but not 4... anyone have any idea as to why this would be? Parts listed below.

Also, do you have an HDD you recommend for my build? 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook TSPhillipT admin December 2020 Here is a comparison between the two GPUs; https://gpu.userbenchmark.com/Compare/Nvidia-RTX-3060-Ti-vs-Nvidia-GTX-1070/4090vs3609 I would look at the 3060Ti if you are using your GPU for rendering as well as having plans for gaming as well.   0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook SunBro_18 ✭ December 2020 So, I can't seem to find a 3060Ti at any Micro Center, New egg, etc. Do you know when you might be back in stock?

Sadly at this time we do not have a good way to estimate new stock on these cards. Our stores get them in periodically and the best way to currently get a card is visit your local store. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook SunBro_18 ✭ December 2020 The problem is I don't live near a shop. Do you suggest waiting till their back in stock or look for a different GPU? Cause the 3060Ti seems pretty popular. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook TSTDavey admin December 2020 edited December 2020 Hey @SunBro_18 just chiming in. These 3060, 3070, 3080 cards are in very high-demand. To get one from us you literally have to be in the store when the random delivery truck pulls up to deliver the one, two or three 3000 series cards to the store. If you're really wanting to get one of these cards unfortunately you'll have be in store for the above scenario or pay a premium (cost and demand) for this card from a online retailer. Amazon has the 3060 Ti online from different oversea sellers but at a high cost for the card. Its a struggle for retailers to keep this cards stocked. Another option would be to wait till the demand for this card goes down, then attempt to get the card from us or another retailer locally. Just sharing some information. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook SunBro_18 ✭ December 2020 edited December 2020 That was my thought, I am building this pc for my school projects so I was thinking of purchasing a GPU to use for the time being then get the 3060ti when the demand goes down. Do you have a GPU you suggest to get for the time being? 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook LandShark admin December 2020 edited December 2020 My recommendation would be to see if you can find something decent on the used market. Check your local area for what GPUs you might be able to find. Otherwise, I'd see if a friend might be interested in buying your interim GPU from you after a bit of time. You'll be taking a bit of a loss buying new. Might as well help a friend out, right? If you're buying new, I'd recommend somewhere around the $200 range. Blender's system requirements page has a great example of specs recommendations for using these types of programs. https://www.blender.org/download/requirements/ I'd recommend a GPU with at least 4GB of VRAM. (GeForce 400 and newer is required.) Another option for you is the EVGA Step-up program which will allow you to buy a card and then upgrade within 90 days, just pay the difference. It's an option but it might not be for everyone. I'd recommend you take a look. Hope this helps! 1 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Categories 6.5K All Categories 999 The Blog 29 What's Trending 158 How to & Technical Guides 8 Computer Hardware 118 Software 3 Home Office 5 Networking Audio/Visual 2 Home Automation 15 3D Printers 7 Maker 14 PC Build Guides 77 Reviews & Buying Guides 25 Build Showcase 13 Contests 35 Past Contests 728 The Community 1.7K General Discussion 104 New Members 68 Consumer Tech 19 Prebuilt PCs and Laptops 72 Software 2 Audio/Visual 11 Networking & Security 1 Home Automation 2 Digital Photography 3 Content Creators 21 Hobby Boards & Projects 22 3D Printing 46 Retro Arcade/Gaming 78 All Other Tech 1.2K Store Information and Policy 48 Off Topic 5 Community Ideas & Feedback 110 Your Completed Builds 2.6K Build-Your-Own PC 1.6K Help Choosing Parts 218 Graphics Cards 157 CPUs, Memory, and Motherboards 61 Cases and Power Supplies 19 Air and Liquid Cooling 11 Monitors and Displays 28 Peripherals 6 All Other Parts 20 Featured Categories We love seeing what our customers build Submit photos and a description of your PC to our build showcase Submit Now Looking for a little inspiration?

Fry's is dead. I had a Fry's in a nice proximity to my house in an area that you can profit from. It is big, empty, highway adjacent, and is now vacant. Personally the demise of Fry's was life changing. So many days I would go by there and talk to the people, buy some new parts and help others figure out what they are describing. There are so many businesses and upper-middle class people. Quite frankly, Microcenter is strong where Fry's was weak. It would need a coat of paint in your color scheme and the Canadian Geese there can be annoying, but it is prime real-estate. I'm talking in the center of a business area. I can't get the knowledge or tech required from Walmart or Best Buy. Quite frankly, we need you MicroCenter, you're our only hope. 9820 Kincaid Dr, Fishers, IN 46037 Here is an aerial photo: https://i1.wp.com/www.wishtv.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/02/FRYS-ELECTRONINCS-FISHERS.jpg?fit=1920%2C1080&ssl=1 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Comments TSTDavey admin March 18 Hello @Bobby_McJoe and thanks for posting on the Microcenter Community Forum. We appreciate the desire for a Microcenter store to be in Indiana. Microcenter knows there are markets for a store in states such as Indiana, Florida, etc.; hopefully at some point there will be a new Microcenter store opened in Fisher or somewhere in Indiana. But until then, unfortunately the closest store we have to Indiana is our Sharonville, Ohio location. It's probably a 2 hour drive from Fisher. As a joke, look on the bright side, at least its not over 500 miles away for Fisher, IN. 😊 Anyway, we do hope to be in Indiana at some point in the future. Thanks for posting. 1 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Bobby_McJoe ✭ March 19 https://community.microcenter.com/discussion/comment/29740#Comment_29740 Thank you for noticing. I really hope you can put a store here, partially because I think it would be a profitable move but mostly because a physical spot where I can see and inquire about an item is better. For example today I needed a RGB light something like this https://www.microcenter.com/product/511819/wyze-bulb that can be controlled through a Raspberry Pi-based smart home server or some other unique way. Websites can't provide it because it needs a conversation to figure out the best way. Kroger can't help since they are a grocery store, Meijer and Target only dabble in tech. Walmart might maybe have something, but it'll probably be in a big kit or they won't know anything other than "It's a lightbulb, it turns on and off until it doesn't turn on anymore then come back and get a new one." Thing is an LED like that isn't really supposed to die by the time I'm done with it. (~3 years in this case.) Menards, Home Depot or Lowe's might carry it but those folks work under the assumption the customer is the one that knows with absolute clarity what they are doing. They don't usually carry different brands because they really aren't electronics stores anyways. I looked up "Nvidia GeForce RTX 3060ti" on Walmart's website because Amazon is raising prices because of bots and miners (which I believe is completely their prerogative.) and do you know what I got? Nothing. They don't even acknowledge that thing exists. https://www.walmart.com/search/?facet=brand%3ANVIDIA&page=1&query=nvidia+geforce+rtx+3060+ti You guys will put at the very least 1 on the shelves for a reasonable, if not msrp price. I can sit out your door in the morning and run in to actually have a chance to buy a single card. The public schools in the area are recognized as some of the best in the region. There are lots of STEM people you can work with, many of which are students. If you decided to bring in some people the kids can go to a public school and get into their dream college very quickly. (Also, check out the area's demographics.) There are tons of people to work at this place and there is a whole lot of demand. Besides, having that big building empty is really not good for any parties involved and I would personally walk right into town hall, meet with the mayor and say that this is a good idea and he would be an idiot to let some other non-technology sales company move in. Besides, the city counsel has been loving bringing business here. (even with some tax incentives. In 2018 they snagged a well-known Swedish furniture company that I don't need to name.) I even talked to a person with an MBA and years of experience who said "Personally, it wouldn't effect me, but for you, Microcenter and the city It would be a great idea." I am going to leave it at this because I have run out of thoughts, and my free time is just about up. Just please, put it on a very short list for further expansion. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook magarity ✭ March 22 I've been in several MC and they weren't nearly as huge as the Fry's I've been in, Retail space is heckalot expensive even still. So, MC is smarter in several ways compared to Fry's and thus still in business. It's kind of like people in my neighborhood keep campaigning to get Trader Joe to move in to a recently abandoned Safeway. TJ's is never even half that size, don't know what they're thinking. Not saying MC won't ever move to your area but I'm pretty confident they wouldn't take over such a large space as what you photo'd. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Categories 6.5K All Categories 999 The Blog 29 What's Trending 158 How to & Technical Guides 8 Computer Hardware 118 Software 3 Home Office 5 Networking Audio/Visual 2 Home Automation 15 3D Printers 7 Maker 14 PC Build Guides 77 Reviews & Buying Guides 25 Build Showcase 13 Contests 35 Past Contests 728 The Community 1.7K General Discussion 104 New Members 68 Consumer Tech 19 Prebuilt PCs and Laptops 72 Software 2 Audio/Visual 11 Networking & Security 1 Home Automation 2 Digital Photography 3 Content Creators 21 Hobby Boards & Projects 22 3D Printing 46 Retro Arcade/Gaming 78 All Other Tech 1.2K Store Information and Policy 48 Off Topic 5 Community Ideas & Feedback 110 Your Completed Builds 2.6K Build-Your-Own PC 1.6K Help Choosing Parts 218 Graphics Cards 157 CPUs, Memory, and Motherboards 61 Cases and Power Supplies 19 Air and Liquid Cooling 11 Monitors and Displays 28 Peripherals 6 All Other Parts 20 Featured Categories We love seeing what our customers build Submit photos and a description of your PC to our build showcase Submit Now Looking for a little inspiration?

I think it's a great build for all the tasks that you mentioned and with the 10700k and the 3060 ti, you'll be able to get 100+ fps in many titles at 1080p with max settings and even some at 1440p. The 3060 ti is an impressive card for the price. Please let me know if you have any other questions! 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook MiYUKi ✭ February 9 edited February 9 I think I'll stick with this build! Thanks again for the help, though one thing I'd like to figure out, how well do you think titles like Metro Exodus or Assassin's Creed Unity will run on this? I'm trying to figure out how much this build can handle before slowing down its FPS. Ah, and should I consider Case Fans? 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook LandShark admin February 9 Happy to help! Yeah, this would run well with those titles. Even at 4k, this build should manage Metro Exodus with around 50fps on max settings. I'd expect AC: Unity to get around 65 fps at 4k. Because of this, you could expect higher fps in 2k and much higher in 1080p. As I mentioned, it's a pretty great build! As for case fans, since the case comes with fans I'd say that would be an aesthetic choice. I don't think it's required, but it may offer a small improvement to your thermals if you were to add more. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook MiYUKi ✭ February 9 edited February 9 Just ran into a problem though, from what I've read, the H510i case won't be able to fit the kraken x63 280mm Water Cooling system, but some people I see still use the 280mm in the H510i, so I'm super confused, and I don't know what I should do. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook LandShark admin February 9 I'm not seeing any info about the x63 not fitting, and I do see that the case lists it does support two 140mm front fans. However, if it is a concern for you, I'd recommend going with the x53 https://www.microcenter.com/product/618678/nzxt-kraken-x53-240mm-rgb-water-cooling-kit It's slightly smaller but still offers the great performance of an AIO! 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook MiYUKi ✭ February 9 I thought about changing to the x53, though I now that I did check back on it, like you said, it does supports two 140mm front fans, so I think I'll stick with the x63. Of course, I've also heard problems regarding the Cam software but if anything were to happen, I'll ask around. Lastly, is there anything you think that I should know before going for this build? This is my first time handling water cooling. Fortunately, NZXT has a warranty in case the water system were to leak or be faulty. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook LandShark admin February 9 Most closed-loop systems or AIO coolers are quite robust and will not leak unless there is a serious issue with the AIO. Just be sure that there is not a kink or severe bend in the tubing. Otherwise, as long as you know how to build a regular system I would say that you're all set! Please let us know if you have any questions! 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook MiYUKi ✭ February 9 Something just dawned on me, do I need to install the AIO Water Cooler when breadboarding? 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook LandShark admin February 9 Do you mean when you're out of case testing? I'd recommend that you always have a cooler on the CPU while it is in use. I would use caution anytime you are adding parts to ensure you are working in a static-free environment. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook MiYUKi ✭ February 10 edited February 10 I'm having a really, REALLY tough time trying to find the EVGA GeForce RTX 3060 TI Graphics Card online and in retail stores. They're all sold out. Where should I check to see if its in stock? Edit: I thought about trying to find an Nvidia RTX 3060 Ti, reading that they'll likely be in stock late this month. Thought I might try my luck with that. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook LandShark admin February 10 Most likely they are out of stock at this time, but I'd always recommend checking our website! https://www.microcenter.com/search/search_results.aspx?Ntk=all&sortby=pricelow&N=4294966937+4294808776&myStore=false Unfortunately, they are sold out pretty much everywhere. There is a huge demand for most GPUs right now, and the manufacturers can't keep up with said demand. Hopefully, that is true! It would be great to have more inventory sooner than later. I'd love to see more RTX and RX builds! 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook MiYUKi ✭ February 10 No luck... Every single one I've looked at, even the one's over my budget, are all sold out. I'm going to keep an eye for any of them if they restock. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook LandShark admin February 10 Best of luck to you! Hopefully we'll have some in the near future! 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Categories 6.5K All Categories 999 The Blog 29 What's Trending 158 How to & Technical Guides 8 Computer Hardware 118 Software 3 Home Office 5 Networking Audio/Visual 2 Home Automation 15 3D Printers 7 Maker 14 PC Build Guides 77 Reviews & Buying Guides 25 Build Showcase 13 Contests 35 Past Contests 728 The Community 1.7K General Discussion 104 New Members 68 Consumer Tech 19 Prebuilt PCs and Laptops 72 Software 2 Audio/Visual 11 Networking & Security 1 Home Automation 2 Digital Photography 3 Content Creators 21 Hobby Boards & Projects 22 3D Printing 46 Retro Arcade/Gaming 78 All Other Tech 1.2K Store Information and Policy 48 Off Topic 5 Community Ideas & Feedback 110 Your Completed Builds 2.6K Build-Your-Own PC 1.6K Help Choosing Parts 218 Graphics Cards 157 CPUs, Memory, and Motherboards 61 Cases and Power Supplies 19 Air and Liquid Cooling 11 Monitors and Displays 28 Peripherals 6 All Other Parts 20 Featured Categories We love seeing what our customers build Submit photos and a description of your PC to our build showcase Submit Now Looking for a little inspiration?

And if you’re looking for some new build ideas, we’ve got you covered with builds for the new i5-11600k, i7-11700k, and even the high-powered i9-11900k! Simple but Mighty - the Intel i5-11600k The i5-11600k is perfect for newcomers to the PC building space, but still want a powerful rig, or for those who are just looking to build on a budget. We’ve put together a part list for a sleek and simple budget build, skipping the RGB to save on cost. Of course, these parts are all just suggestions, so feel free to swap some out if you do want that color splash! Processor: Intel i5-11600k The obvious starting point for our i5 build, the 11600k delivers six core power for a budget price. Starting at a base clock speed of 3.9 GHz, you can eke ever more power from it with overclocking or Intel’s Turbo Boost Technology 2.0, bringing it up to 4.9GHz. It’ll handle all your daily and gaming computing needs. Motherboard: ASRock - B560M PRO4 MicroATX The ASRock B560 PRO4 is a budget builder’s best friend. Coming in at under $100 but still offering PCIe 4.0 and supporting RAM speeds up to 3200MHz, it’ll do what you need it to do without breaking the bank Graphics Card: EVGA GeForce RTX 3060 Ti XC Every recent GeForce generation has been leaps and bounds greater than the previous, and the 30 series is no exception. The 3060 Ti is faster than the high-end 2080 Super of the last-gen, starting at half the cost. Perfect for a budget build. RAM: Crucial Ballistix Gaming 16GB (2 x GB) DDR4-3200 The secret of this RAM is that, despite looking fairly plain and being pretty inexpensive, it’ll still deliver incredible speed, pushing the B560M motherboard to its limit. Hard Drives: Samsung 870 EVO 500GB SSD and Seagate BarraCude 2TB HDD If you’ve read any of our previous buying guides, you know we won’t let you get away with just a standard HDD and this budget build is no exception. We’re using a 500GB Samsung SSD as main storage, with enough room for your OS and any other important files (RE: games) and backing it up with a 2TB HDD for everything else Power Supply: PowerSpec - 650 Watt 80+ Bronze Semi-Modular Just because you’re building on a budget doesn’t mean you should skimp on a power supply. Inexpensive power supplies are more likely to short out and potentially damage other components. The PowerSpec we chose is rated at 80+ Bronze, so you’ll avoid shorts and keep your computer powered and safe. And it’s semi-modular, so your case will stay clean without a bunch of loose extra cables floating about. Heat Sink: ThermalTake Slim X3 Since the i5-11600k doesn’t come with a pack-in heat sink, we’ll need to pick one up. As the i5 is not one of the top-of-the-line, high-power CPUs, we can get by with a smaller, more inexpensive heat sink. The Slim X3 is just that - enough cooling power that you don’t overheat, but not flashy enough to break the bank. Case: Lian Li 205M mATX Mid-Tower Case To compliment our MicroATX motherboard, we need a MicroATX case, and for that we turn to Lian Li. The 205M isn’t as flashy as some of their other cases, but it does offer their wonderful cable management tools and a tempered glass window so that any RGB you do budget in shows through, clear and bright. The full parts list can be found on our Custom PC Builder: https://www.microcenter.com/site/content/custom-pc-builder.aspx?load=d9a14ebb-f1dd-47ae-871d-0f6744a510e9  The Power Gamer - The Intel i7-11700k Looking for a little more oomph from your processor? Want to game hard, but keep costs under $2000? The Intel i7-11700k is for you.  The 11700k bumps its processing power up with eight cores and 12 threads, delivering even better speeds for gaming and daily use. So we’ll be building a gaming rig, complete with some RGB, to make the most of it. Processor: Intel i7-11700k The obvious choice for an i7-11700k build, it’s a step up from the i5 and delivers greater speed and power for every use. It’s a stellar processor, and the one we used for our benchmarking tests if you need proof! Motherboard: ASUS Tuf Gaming Z590 Plus Also used in our benchmarking, the ASUS Tuf Gaming Z590 is a standard ATX board, supporting PCI2 4.0, two M.2 slots for memory, and supports LAN speeds up to 2500Mbps Graphics Card: EVGA GeForce RTX 3070 FTW3 A step up in CPU power demands a step up in GPU power, so we’re going with the 3070 for some high-quality 4K gaming support. But, like the 3060 Ti above, picking up a 3070 won’t blow out your budget, making affordable 4K gaming a reality. Plus: RGB. RAM: G.Skill Trident Z RGB 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR4-3200 Let’s keep the RGB rolling right into our RAM with 16 gigs of DDR4-3200 RGB fueled RAM. And while the RGB won’t give you an edge in gaming, the 3200MHz RAM certainly will! Hard Drives: Samsung 970 EVO SSD 1TB M.2 NVMe and Seagate BarraCude 2TB HDD We’re taking our storage a step up with this build as well, opting for an M.2 NVMe SSD for even faster speeds. But, since 500gb won’t hold everything and we’re not going all out (yet), we’ll supplement it with a standard 2TB HDD for all your other files. Power Supply: NZXT C750 750 Watt 80 Plus Gold ATX Fully Modular Power Supply If we’re building a nice rig, we want it looking nice, right? One of the easiest ways to do that is with a fully modular power supply. With fully modular PSUs, every cable you hook up will be used, and any cable you don’t need can stay in the box. Absolutely no extraneous cables in your case! Heat Sink: Cooler Master Hyper 212 Black The more powerful your processor, the more heat it’s going to generate. With an i7, the heat won’t be astronomical, but it does warrant a slightly higher-quality cooler, and the Hyper 212 Black is just that. It’s big, it’s powerful, and it won’t put you over budget. Case: Lian Li Lancool 205 Mesh Tempered Glass ATX Mid-Tower Black It’s RGB time. Lian Li makes stellar cases with incredible cable management, as previously noted. What makes the 205 special is the RGB fans all around the case combined with a minimal aesthetic, making a vibrant case that doesn’t feel gaudy. The full parts list can be found on our Custom PC Builder: https://www.microcenter.com/site/content/custom-pc-builder.aspx?load=491c6eea-787f-445e-aa49-936034e73ba2  The Do-It-All - The Intel i9-11900K So, you’re a gamer, video editor, and photoshop whiz. You need a processor that can handle it all and then some. Or maybe you’re just one of those things and will settle for nothing less than the best Intel has to offer. The i9-11900k is that processor. And we’ll be using it as the basis for a no-holds-barred (but still reasonable) rig. Processor: Intel i9-11900k The apex of Rocket Lake processors, the 11900k can do everything the i3, i5, and i7 can do, but better and faster. It’s the processor for the hardcore and die-hard enthusiasts, for those who push every computer part to its absolute limit gaming and editing. Basically: it’s powerful. Motherboard: ASUS Z590-E ROG STRIX Gaming WiFi Without going too overboard, the Z590-E, is sleek, powerful, and WiFi ready. Plus, it has four M.2 slots, RGB customization, and multiple PCIe 4.0 slots. It’s the whole package, at a lower price.  Graphics Card: EVGA GeForce RTX 3090 FTW3 Ultra Gaming A top-of-the-line processor deserves a top-of-the-line GPU, and you can’t go higher than the GeForce RTX 3090. Able to handle 4k gaming with ease, the 3090 is getting you ready for 8k gaming.  RAM: G.Skill Trident Z RGB 32GB (2 x 16GB) DDR4-3200 What do you add to the 3200MHZ RAM we used in the i7 build? More RAM and RGB, obviously! We’re doubling it to 32 GB of DDR4-3200 RAM while sticking with only two sticks. So if you need even more RAM, you have the option. Hard Drives: Samsung 970 EVO SSD 1TB M.2 NVMe and Samsung 870 EVO 1TB SSD Absolutely no HDDs in this build. We’re using a big M.2 NVMe as our main drive, with a standard SSD as the backup for everything else. It’s all about speed and stability, something old-school HDDs won’t deliver! Power Supply: ASUS ROG Thor 850 Watt 80 Plus Platinum ATX Fully Modular For our powerhouse build, we need a PSU that’ll deliver the power we need and won’t fail on us. That’s why we’re springing for an 850 watt PSU with an 80 Plus Platinum rating. It’s as solid as they come, and the RGB is a nice bonus! Water Cooler: NZXT Kraken Z63 280mm RGB CPU Water Cooling Kit Ultimate power deserves ultimate cooling, so we’ll water cool this processor. The Kraken Z63 delivers top-of-the-line water cooling, RGB lighting, and a customizable LCD screen. Put your temps on it, put your favorite gif on it, put your favorite Micro Center logo on it! Case: NZXT H510 Elite Dual-Tempered Glass RGB ATX Mid-Tower Case Let’s cap the whole build off by complimenting our water cooler with an NZXT H510 Elite case. Featuring dual tempered glass windows, you can show off not only your components but how well you did your cable management! Plus two gorgeous front-facing RGB fans make the H510 Elite the perfect case for your new powerhouse The full parts list can be found on our Custom PC Builder: https://www.microcenter.com/site/content/custom-pc-builder.aspx?load=bde9c6e0-2dfa-464d-9976-08274a974b29  And if you're looking for even more news, discussions, and reviews on Intel's Gen 11 Processors, be sure to check out our Rocket Lake Benchmarks and Discussion/FAQ posts! 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Leave a Comment Rich Text Editor.

Of course my opinion, but I'm new to it all. My build is pretty straight forward looking to getting the most out of gaming. Love trying out new games, ready for this cyberpunk release! If selected this would really help me get a jump start in PC gaming. Parts As Follow: CPU: Intel - Core i5-10400 Comet Lake 2.9GHz Six-Core LGA 1200, Went with the i5 I think it's a well rounded CPU for the price. MOTHERBOARD: ASUS - Z490-G ROG Strix Gaming (WIFI) Intel LGA 1200, Love the way this Motherboard looks, has everything I would need and not cram up the space. RAM: Crucial - Ballistix Gaming 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR4-3600 PC4-28800 CL16 Dual Channel, Heard a lot of good stuff about Crucial, again all the Ram I would need for my preferred use. And, Love the black slick look. CASE: Lian Li - PC-O11 Dynamic Tempered Glass ATX Mid-Tower, This case is every where I look being show cased. What's there to say. Lian Li is killing it! POWER SUPPLY: Thermaltake - Toughpower Grand RGB 750 Watt 80 Plus Gold ATX Fully Modular, 750 is more then enough for my build. RGB and fully modular definitely going to help with the cable management! VIDEO CARD/GPU: ASUS - GeForce RTX 3060 Ti ROG Strix Overclocked Triple-Fan 8GB, This GPU is straight fire! Nvidia is killing it. SSD: Samsung - 860 EVO 1TB SSD 3-bit MLC V-NAND SATA III, For my booting and over all files. Samsung - 970 EVO+ 1TB SSD V-NAND M.2 2280 PCIe NVMe, For my GAME! CPU COOLING: Thermaltake - UX100 ARGB Universal CPU Cooler, Went with an heatsink. I'm old school can't trust the water cooling yet lol. Plus it's RGB duh come on! CASE FANS: Thermaltake - Riing Quad Black 12 RGB Hydraulic Bearing 120mm Case Fan, You know what they say the more RGB the more FPS. Let's GOOOOOOO, love these fans so much options, get the most out of your RGB. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Dewwy ✭ December 2020 https://www.microcenter.com/site/content/custom-pc-builder-amd.aspx?load=850cea03-531a-499c-9a2e-0c20a9cd1578 A good buddy of mine helped me build this after seeing my current set up.

I’d want to have something powerful for mostly gaming but able to run some side CAD builds for 3D printing tasks. I’d love to have it be high contrast with lots of white and black and then using the Lian Li RGB fans and Corsair LED strips to add color to it. Also the white of the case and many components I think will reflect the light nicely. I want use a couple AIOs with the NZXT GPU adapter to be able to push both the CPU and GPU for gaming purposes and allow me to be able to hold onto this PC for a very long time. The unit would connect to my 4K G-sync TV in the living room make for a great art piece and a wonderful relaxing gaming environment.  https://www.microcenter.com/site/content/custom-pc-builder.aspx?load=9a069dd8-0a0f-4566-a28c-f1524259dfc3 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Looey ✭ December 2020 This is the PC I've been putting together (in my head) for the last few months.

Constantly pushing for the days that I will see this in my hands. So I tend to stick with msi products as they have never let me down. I specifically went with intel bcause their oc capabilities have always been top notch while maintaining excellent temps and if im pushing for extra frames this would be perfect. The 3080 oc would be perfect along with the g-sync monitor I've chosen for games and graphic designing. The corsair case along with the Vengenace rgb ram and the water cooling aio have always been personal favorites, so in my dream build this case, ram, and aio is apart of it. The red mouse and keyboard combo along with red extensions cables replicates my intense firey desire to acquire this build. I went specifically with nvme ssd memory they are lot faster and use less power than your typical ssd sata drives. I chose an 850w power supply to make sure that I maintain the power I need when Overclocking, if needed. Anyways, enough about this. I hope you guys will find my entry one of the more intriguing choices and chose me to be your sponsor for this amazing prize and also in turn making a hard working man's dream come true.

I already have all parts except RTX3080. I really want this build for my work and my hobby which is game and youtube. 1 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Christian_Orozco ✭ December 2020 This is the build I chose to make (excluding Windows 10 and peripherals). I will primarily be using this PC for school work and to game, and maybe start streaming or YouTube. I chose the Ryzen 5 3600 as it is a good 6 core processor for both gaming and streaming. The Nvidia GeForce RTX 2060 will go great with this cpu for gaming, as it will get good frame rates on medium to high settings on almost any game. I chose 2*8 3200 mhz ram as 16gb is pretty much the minimum for gaming/intensive workloads. A 650 watt power supply will be good enough for this build. Because I game in my room and the wifi box is in the living room downstairs, I decided to go with a b550m motherboard with wifi. The case I chose looks like it is good for air flow as it comes with four included fans, as well as a lot of USB ports and audio ports. Finally I chose to go with a 1tb ssd as there will be plenty of space for games, software, and other things. https://www.microcenter.com/site/content/custom-pc-builder.aspx?load=4c62e2c4-9956-459a-b0f7-0835329d67f7 1 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook JPSHRACER ✭ December 2020 I went to Micro Center November 2020 to build a new custom built gaming and workstation computer. However, I was not able to purchase all the parts I wanted. Certain parts were out of stock. Other parts were out of my budget. This is my wish list and dream list of my custom built gaming computer. The AMD Ryzen 5900X is my choice for a fast multicore processor and they made upgrades with the memory arrangement with AMD 4th Generation Ryzen. The Corsair 64 GB 3200Mhz offers enough Random Access Memory (RAM) for years to come. The EVGA GeForce RTX 3060 TI, 3070 or 3080 offers enough graphical performance for modern day video games also for years to come. The Corsair Power Supply 850 Watt provides enough power to drive the gaming components. The Samsung EVO 2TB Non Volatile Memory Express (NVMe) Solid State offers blazing fast speeds for the operating system and my most important video games. The SanDisk 4TB Solid State (SSD) offers enough storage for my documents, photos, games and more. It is still the more affordable mass storage. The NZXT H510 Elite has the most case fans and they are RGB. Plus, it had the front panel and side panel tempered glass displaying everything. The Elgato 4K60 capture card offers capturing my Xbox One X screenshots and videos as a hobby to post to Twitter and YouTube. The Viewsonic XG2530 25 inch 1080p 240hz offers the 1080p experience I know however it increases the frame limit to 240 frames per second potential. I wish the Viewsonic XG2760 27 inch 1440p 165hz Nvidia G-Sync monitor was still available at Micro Center. That means for games like PlanetSide 2 and MechWarrior Online that I will have the most possible frames in my online multiplayer games! As Nvidia marketing states “More Frames Win Games” and I agree totally! I also play the Watch Dogs franchise including Watch Dogs, Watch Dogs 2 and coming someday to Steam Watch Dogs Legion. Antigraviator and Pacer (formerly Formula Fusion) are my favorite futuristic racing games. Battlefield Bad Company 2, Battlefield 3, Battlefield 4, Need for Speed Hot Pursuit, Need for Speed (2015), Need for Speed Heat and The Sims 4 are some of my favorite Electronic Arts titles that I play on my new custom built gaming computer.   I was extremely happy with my purchasing experience at Micro Center for the build I was actually able to build with AMD Ryzen 3900X, ASUS X570 Hero Non-WiFi, Corsair 64GB 3200Mhz, Samsung 500GB NVMe, SanDisk 2TB SSD, Corsair 750 Watt White PSU, Elgato 4K60 Pro and NZXT H510 Elite White. Thank you to all the Micro Center employees that helped me with my purchase. The Micro Center Build Service for assembling it. I cannot wait to go back again in the future!   If I won the $1000 gift card I would upgrade to both a Nvidia GeForce RTX 3070 and Viewsonic XG2530 25 inch monitor 240 frames per second. The monitor would be the most important for currently upgrading my new custom built gaming computer with the ability to see more frames with my MSI GeForce RTX 2060. It is a first generation RTX card and was the only one available the night I was building and assembling the setup.

I have been gaming on a laptop for about four years now with a GTX 1060 and I7 7700k. It has been reliable and given me good experiences with most games thus far. However, I would love to build a PC like the one I put together in the Custom PC Builder. I understand something like this realistically is way out of my budget, but I think I can still put together a great "future proof" machine, especially if I manage to get any of the contest prizes.  -Leo 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Pokemas ✭ December 2020 edited December 2020 I chose this build as it would be my dream build.

This build is called white christmas because every component has been painstakingly selected to be as white as possible and run as cool as possible in the theme of a bright snowy christmas morning. The Lian LI O11D XL White case was selected due to its white painted inner chassis and spectacular glass greenhouse, perfect for a build like this that one would want to flaunt like a piece of expensive modern furniture. It features a 5950x paired with the new ROG STRIX AIO cooler white edition. One of the few AIO white coolers on the market made by ASUS ROG, nothing less. The GPU is a GIGABYTE 3080 VISION. Since the 3080 Vision was not available in the PC builder, I chose its very close sister the 3080 EAGLE which shares similar parts, specs, and design cues. It also claims the title of the only white RTX 3000 series card available, and has an absolutely gorgeous minimalist cooler design that matches the motherboard. As for the motherboard, there is only one minimalist white am4 motherboard on the market. That's the Gigabyte B550 VISION. The breathtaking minimalist design does not grab the attention of your eye away from the main attractions of the build, the CPU and GPU while offering uncompromising board features. Of course for a white build you have to go with the crucial ballistix white RGB sticks. 64gb of it. When uncompromising performance is important the crucial sticks provide unmatched value due to their excellent overclocking potential. A close second choice is the corsair Vengeance white RGB ram which is rated out of the box for even higher memory speeds. And now for a component that few have ever been able to get in white until very recently: the newly launched ASUS ROG STRIX 750w PSU white edition. Featuring even white PSU cables! Although you will never see this part of the build inside the lian li 011D where the PSU is behind the motherboard, you can sleep well at night knowing that every nook and cranny has been color matched. But just to add a little bit more spice to the build, I've also decided to throw in the Lian Li Strimer RGB PSU cables!  To add the finishing touches to the tower, I selected 6 corsair sickleflow 120 RGB white edition fans to add even more RGB flare while providing excellent intake air flow. And finally I selected the cablemod 600mm rgb led strip kit for more ambient case lighting. But of course matching all the tower components isn't quite enough, we also need to get all the peripherals! It features the Samsung G9 ultrawide which features a stunning white back. As for the Keyboard & mouse, I have selected the Logitech G915 and G305 wireless keyboard and mouse to maintain the minimalist white theme. But wait, there's more. Why not get white audio peripherals while we're at it!? For this I've selected the ASUS ROG gaming headphones in white as well as the Kanto-Living YU2 speakers for uncompromising Hi-fi audio while also matching the theme. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Berfs1 ✭ December 2020 https://www.microcenter.com/site/content/custom-pc-builder.aspx?load=12e3242c-49ba-43a8-8893-f812302e6c9a I made this PC list for streaming and video editing, and while the stuff may seem "overkill", this is a dream PC. This PC list is made for actual workstation usage, hence why I have an odd combination of CPU and GPU, because this has (mostly) all the parts it needs, nothing that it doesn't. CPU: I intentionally chose a 3970X as I would use this as a dedicated streaming/editing PC. The 3970X has 32 cores and 64 threads, which maxes out the limits of Windows. Yes you could get a 3990X and disable HT just to get around that limitation, but that just means you have a lot higher power consumption and only barely more performance, NTM it is double the price. I would use this for x264 encoding for streaming, and this would be a killer CPU for video editing as well! CPU Cooler: Enermax Liqtech II 360 TR4 is one of the only AIOs specifically designed for TR4, and can actually handle 500W+ of heat output that the 3970X, when overclocked, will produce. Therefore, this is one of the only AIOs that would even be advisable for Threadrippers. Thermal Compound: I have used IC Diamond numerous times, it has been my go-to thermal compound since it is one of the best compounds out there, and it allows for extremely low idle temperatures, as well as low heat transfer rate acceleration, so temperatures don't spike nearly as high as typical thermal compounds. Motherboard: I chose the Asus Zenith Extreme II really because it is 300$, and the only difference between this and the Alpha version is the 90A power stages (the original has 70A, which is still plentiful for the 3970X). Also, it has an incredible selection of I/O ports, as well as a lot of possible PCIe lane configurations. Memory: I chose 2 kits of 4x16GB 3600 MHz CL18 Ripjaws V RAM since I would need the capacity (total 128GB) and the high bandwidth for video editing. Also, it does NOT have RGB, which is a plus for me because I am not aiming for RGB everything, just subtle RGB accents here and there. Case: The Thermaltake View 51 looks amazing, and can handle a 360mm radiator in the top, but mainly I am choosing this for the overall aesthetics this case provides. Graphics Card: The RTX 3060 Ti because, it wasn't that much more than an RTX 2060; I only needed the minimum GPU with tensor cores (for NVIDIA broadcast and other AI functions), and while the 2060 is cheaper, RTX 3060 Ti would be the more sensible out of the two since it is only like 50$ more but has much better performance. Storage: The SN850 1TB would be for the boot drive and since it is PCIe 4.0, I would be able to feasibly use part of it as a page-file since video editing can take a bunch of memory. The 860 Evo 4TB was chosen because it has the DRAM cache, and I would use this mainly as the editing drive. And the 10TB WD Purple was chosen because it is a CMR drive, and I would use that for recording and storing finished videos. Because this particular hard drive has CMR, and not the gruesome SMR (which will drop your transfer speeds to like 15MBps, which is unacceptable for my use), it can actually handle a whopping 250MBps+ of sustained transfer rates! Power Supply: The Corsair RM850 is one of the best power supplies Micro Center offers (at least the one I had selected), and while I would have liked to see a 1000W or 1200W option, the 850W actually should be fine since I only put a 3060 Ti and not something super power heavy. My calculations show that this system can take a peak power draw of ~950W, but that estimate is mainly for what power supply to choose, and an 850W will be perfectly fine for this system. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook charlesg2 ✭ December 2020 just wanting to upgrade from what i have,  https://www.microcenter.com/site/content/custom-pc-builder.aspx?load=20f628c0-ffec-4f65-b595-e6d9753ccaf4 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook 360noscopeoogabooga_ ✭ December 2020 edited December 2020 https://www.microcenter.com/site/content/custom-pc-builder.aspx?load=cb5404de-3315-4daf-9b72-c47fbe8eca6d Balls to the walls, best workstation for the highest price.

This budget is still fairly high for me, but I'm working towards it. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Deaner1121 ✭ December 2020 https://www.microcenter.com/site/content/custom-pc-builder.aspx?load=e6bd2144-1508-4d5b-8245-50bb6f5a6286 These are the parts I would really like to have in my pc.

Him and my Mom have had a really hard year financially and the never complain, and they remain generous through it all. I would love to bless him this Christmas! He's a big gamer, but his current computer is like 10 years old.. I actually bought him Red Dead Redemption 2 for his birthday, but he has to play it in 800 x 600 to even run it well. So this would be huge for him. Thanks for considering! https://www.microcenter.com/site/content/custom-pc-builder.aspx?load=1d96d20b-e2f5-4e72-b691-ace4efa0ab0d 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook «1234567…16» This discussion has been closed.

We've got you covered with two builds, one AMD and one Intel, designed to make the most of the new graphics card.                                                                                                                                                                            Photo: NVIDIA AMD NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060 Build For AMD, we'll be putting together a sleek black minimalist build, focused on power over flash. Processor: Ryzen 5 5600X We're aiming for the sweet spot with the Ryzen 5 5600X. It'll be more than enough processing power for your average usage, with a sizable chunk to spare, without breaking the bank. Motherboard: ASUS x570 TUF Gaming If you're building with an RTX 3060 the day it comes out, you're going to have a bit of an easier time making the most of the card with an AMD build. The RTX 3060 can make use of a PCIe 4.0 slot, and doing so gives it an extra bit of oomph. And, while Intel is starting to put out PCIe 4.0 motherboards, AMD has been making use of them for a bit now. Add on to that the minimal black aesthetic that we're looking for with this build, and you have a winning motherboard. Graphics Card: ASUS NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060 TUF Gaming Overclocked Triple-Fan 12GB GDDR6 PCIe 4.0 Obviously, we'll be going with one of the new GeForce RTX 3060s, but the ASUS TUF version has the synergy with our x570 TUF motherboard we're looking for, as well as that simple black coloring to match the rest of the build. But, this also has RGB, letting you draw attention to your gorgeous new graphics card while bathing the rest of your all-black build in soft, rainbow light. RAM: G.Skill Ripjaw V 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR4-3200 16 gigs of RAM is more than most users will ever need, but with only two sticks to get us there, you'll have plenty of room to expand. Plus, the aesthetic of the RAM will blend in perfectly with the build. Hard Drives: WD Black SN 750 500GB M.2 (For OS) and Samsung 860 EVO 1TB SSD (For everything else) Hard drives might not be the flashiest part of a PC build, but with a WD Black M.2 for your OS (with room to spare), your computer will be up and running in the blink of an eye. Add on an extra terabyte of space with Samsung's 860 EVO in a 2.5" form factor and you've got all the space you need, running at lightning speeds. Power Supply: Corsair CX650M 650 Watt 80+ Bronze ATX Semi-Modular Power Supply If we want to put together something sleek and clean, we need good cable management. Enter the semi-modular power supply. Use the cables you need, put the rest back in the box. Case: Lian Li 205 Tempered Glass ATX Lian Li makes nothing but gorgeous, sleek cases, and the 205 is no exception. With no RGB on-board, the only glow will be from your brand new 3060, lighting up the 205 through its tempered glass window, showcasing a clean powerhouse of a build. The full parts list can be found on our Custom PC Builder: https://www.microcenter.com/site/content/custom-pc-builder.aspx?load=bb8da1ad-6dd2-4bff-8443-5d8de9f0c20f Intel NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060 Build For our Intel build, we'll be putting something together with a lot of flash and RGB, wrapped up in a clean white aesthetic. Processor: Intel Core i5-10600K Much like the AMD build, the i5-10600k hits the sweet spot of having enough power to handle daily tasks and gaming with ease without breaking the bank. Motherboard: ASUS Z590-P Prime Intel LGA 1200 ATX Motherboard Getting the most out of an Intel build is a bit trickier, but there are a few recently-released motherboards that can still get you that PCIe 4.0 slot that will allow you to make the most out of your new RTX 3060. Plus the silver trim on the board sets up what is going to be an incredibly clean and colorful build. Graphics Card: Gigabyte NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060 Vision Overclocked Triple-Fan 12GB GDDR6 PCIe 4.0 The Gigabyte GeForce RTX 3060 not only makes full use of the PCIe 4.0 slots in our ASUS Z590-P motherboard, but the silver plating matches the silver trim as well. Add on to that even more RGB to really drive home those bright multi-colored lights in a light backdrop, and you've got a winning card. RAM: Corsair Vengeance RGB Pro 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR4-3200 White Two sticks of 8GM DD4-3200, more than enough for daily use with the ability to add more if you need it. But the choice for this ram comes from the white color and on-RAM RGB lighting to keep with the color theme while adding more lights to your build. Hard Drives: WD Black SN 750 500GB M.2 (For OS) and Samsung 860 EVO 1TB SSD (For everything else) Same reasons as the AMD build: they might not be the flashiest part of a PC build, but with a WD Black M.2 for your OS (with room to spare), your computer will be up and running in the blink of an eye. Add on an extra terabyte of space with Samsung's 860 EVO in a 2.5" form factor and you've got all the space you need, running at lightning speeds. Power Supply: Corsair RM850x 850 Watt 80+ Gold ATX Fully Modular Power Supply 850 Watts with an 80+ Gold rating, this power supply is ready to handle everything you can throw at it, and look invisible doing it thanks to fully modular cables, meaning you only use what you absolutely have to. Less cables = less cable management = cleaner looking PC. Plus, the white paint job will help your PSU blend right into your case. Case: Lian Li Liancool II Tempered Glass eATX Mesh Mid Tower Computer Case - White Lian Li makes its second appearance with another, totally different case. This white case features swing panels on both sides for easy access, a basement for cable storage, and glass panels so everyone can gasp at your pure white, RGB-filled build. Oh, and the case also has RGB. Bonus - Heat Sink: Red Dragon CC2011 CPU Cooler, Slim Design RGB LED White Heat Sink Fan Not a necessary part for the build, but definitely necessary to pull the whole aesthetic together. Forgo the stock fan that comes with your Intel i5-10600k in favor of one with more power and more RGB. White radiator with an RGB fan? A perfect finishing touch. The full parts list can be found on our Custom PC Builder: https://www.microcenter.com/site/content/custom-pc-builder.aspx?load=417cb877-192d-4284-888c-5f9be291be55 Got your own idea for a build? Leave them in the comments! Or, if you build either of these, we want to see them over on our Build Showcase! 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Comments Benzoxazine ✭ February 28 Why go with an X570? You'll only see at most 1-2% difference in performance. I would have gone with a B450/X470 build. Shave off $70 there. If you choose the appropriate MB, you can do resizable bar even with 400 series AM4 MBs. Both the video cards you listed at way over MSRP at approx. $500 at the time of this post (which is important!). Go with the EVGA XC model instead to save $110. So now we have $200 to save or to invest in other parts. So we could upgrade the CPU to a 5600X and save money still! Changing to this CPU will affect the performance significantly more than having a better MB or different GPU model. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook JJOP ✭ March 2 I returned my 5600x, B550 F-ROG, RAM and ROG power supply when it was obvious I wasn't completing a build anytime soon. Nice hypotheticals you have here. I'm forced into prebuilts. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook LandShark admin March 3 Hey @Benzoxazine I can't be 100% certain of the reason SeanM made his choices here, but I have a fairly good guess. If the board manufacturer has listed that B450/X470 is compatible with the 5600X, then you definitely could do that. However, it would require at least a BIOS update. The ASUS x570 TUF Gaming is quite an economical option for the X570 series especially if you're looking to upgrade your storage down the line. After all, these are just recommendations and you could definitely mix and match compatible parts to better suit your theme or your budget. @JJOP Sorry to hear that you wouldn't be able to complete your build quickly. There is a global shortage of several essential parts to complete a PC right now. We're doing our best to get as many as possible as quickly as possible!

I think the answer is no, but please let us know tomorrow before we wait all night and end up walking away from an absurdly priced card. I would rather buy from Microcenter than the Big Yellow store but I know they will have founders for $1,199. We deserve to know the price ranges for the cards you will have before we wait all night. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Justin_Exploring ✭ June 2 Anyone else camping out the Saint Davids location?

Is Micro Center going to be charging fair market rate or are they going to be charging MSRP for the third party cards? Also, is there any idea of about how many cards will be available? 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook LandShark admin June 2 https://community.microcenter.com/discussion/comment/33086#Comment_33086 I wish that I had an answer to give you ahead of time! Sadly, the pricing for partner cards is still under NDA, and I don't know the amount that they will cost. I would expect it to be similarly priced, but that is just a guestimate. I'm making this guess based on the cost of the 3090 and the listed price of the FE cards in the article above. Q) How much do the 3080 Ti & 3070 Ti video cards cost? A) Up-to-date pricing for our cards will be posted on the website once they’re available. As soon as we're able to share the price, we'll update our site with this information! Please keep a close eye on our website! 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook LandShark admin June 2 https://community.microcenter.com/discussion/comment/33097#Comment_33097 We're expecting to have stock of both the 3080 ti and 3070 ti on their respective launch dates, however, we aren't certain of the specific quantity. If we're able to get a concrete number ahead of launch we'll share that! 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Justin_Exploring ✭ June 2 edited June 2 https://community.microcenter.com/discussion/comment/33105#Comment_33105 By any chance do you know if there will be stock (not expecting you to know quantities of any) of standard 3080s or 3090s on drop day tomorrow as well or just 3080Ti? 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook LandShark admin June 2 @Justin_Exploring It's quite possible, but I can't say anything with 100% certainty. We've been getting fairly regular shipments of several GPUs from both NVIDIA and AMD at this point. 1 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Dryloch ✭ June 2 edited June 2 Pricing being under NDA the day before the sale is ridiculous for the AIBs to be dictating. I would think Microcenter would have enough pull to demand a more reasonable NDA period. These AIBs are running things like the Wild West now and the consumers need somebody to stand up to them and say enough! If the AIBs are afraid to tell us how much they are going to charge then maybe they are gouging too much. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook rishiMukherjee ✭ June 2 I bought a 3080 pre-build from micro center last weekend. Can I get the 3080 Ti instead and return 3080?  0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook TSTonyV admin June 2 edited June 2 https://community.microcenter.com/discussion/comment/33111#Comment_33111 We can't return individual components out of pre-builts, however if the early reviews that are going up are anything to go buy, you're really not losing much performance anyway. The price increase of a 3080ti vs a 3080 is definitely not worth the minor performance increase in comparison. https://community.microcenter.com/discussion/comment/33109#Comment_33109 I think the NDAs are mostly dictated by NVIDIA, but I don't really know how that whole process works. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook TSMichaelB admin June 2 https://community.microcenter.com/discussion/comment/33111#Comment_33111 Unfortunately not. We are not able to take components that were sold in a pre-built unit as exchanges for upgrade components. If you are looking to upgrade the RTX 3080, you can definitely explore purchasing a 3080 Ti to perform that upgrade though I would strongly recommend waiting for benchmarks to see if the performance difference warrants the price of the upgrade. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook HammerHead444 ✭ June 2 What are the chances of getting a 3070ti off of best buy right after release? My mom was gonna let me use her credit card and I was gonna stay up and try and get one for the computer I just built from parts at micro center. I don’t think she or anyone else I know would be willing to spent the night in a car or tent outside of micro center. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Dryloch ✭ June 2 https://community.microcenter.com/discussion/comment/33114#Comment_33114 I think you would have to be extremely lucky. One good thing for you to know is that I sent my friend to Microcenter a few minutes ago to scope it out. There are only 5 people in line right now. Maybe you can go at like 4AM or something and still get one when the 3070ti comes out next week. 1 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook TKPJr2009 ✭ June 2 edited June 2 Will you'll be updating us on rather or not you'll will be selling Nvida founders edition RTX 3080ti  tomorrow and RTX 3070ti on June 10th .  I know you'll sold the founders edition RTX 3070 & RTX 3060ti when they released on Release day . But that was the only time you'll had FE stock  0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook HammerHead444 ✭ June 3 What time do you think I would have to get to micro center for the 3070ti launch. My local micro center is the Brentwood one. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Ian admin June 3 https://community.microcenter.com/discussion/comment/33118#Comment_33118 We will have a variety of models but we do not have information on specifically which models. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Ian admin June 3 https://community.microcenter.com/discussion/comment/33133#Comment_33133 Our community staff is not in a specific store, but based on demand, many hours before the store opens but we wouldn't have a way to estimate an exact time to you. 1 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook AiHayasaka ✭ June 3 Does anyone who’s been to the Westmont IL store know how early I should go to get a 3070 ti? 1 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Dryloch ✭ June 4 edited June 4 https://community.microcenter.com/discussion/comment/33147#Comment_33147 I went to the one in Duluth GA last night at 7 PM to get a 3080ti. This morning they had 72 cards and I was #43 in line. I think going the afternoon before is a good target. Definitely don't expect to show up after Midnight and get a card. By Midnight there were more than 72 on the list. Also... the difference in price was big. The people at the end had to either pay $2,000 or leave. The first 40 or so paid $1,400 for almost the same quality card. I ended up paying 80 more because of my place in line but I can live with that. The less you care about the price the later you can go basically. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Leesanction ✭ June 6 edited June 6 Anyone care to tell me their experience going to Micro Center in Westburry Ny long Island for the 3080ti launch? Im planning camping out there for the 3070ti launch. Want to see if its worth trying. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Fender007 ✭ June 6 I’m from Los Angeles out in Houston for work. Can anybody share insight about how the launch was for the 3080ti? I would have to miss a half day of work to attempt to buy a card, but if they’re disorganized or anything like the Dallas location 3080ti launch I won’t even bother going there. You guys should YouTube it, I’m surprised people weren’t hurt. They should be doing it like the Ohio location, a list and constantly checking every hour or so to keep it fair and organized. Wow Dallas was the most unprofessional thing I have seen, looked like a scene in a movie. anybody with Houston insight I’d appreciate it thank you 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook TheFamousChrisA ✭ June 8 I am curious how much the 3070 Ti will be if they were upcharging the 3080 Ti to almost $2,000 for people later in line. I've never heard of places charging more the later in line you are, but if I need to get to the Weston, Illinois location store at 4pm the day before I am fine with that. If there is a voucher or a way to make sure they keep my place in line I can camp outside in a lawn chair or wait in my car for a full day. I have no clue if Best Buy is going to do a 3070 Ti in-store launch like they did the 3080 Ti (which sucks because they did it at a store in Madison where I live and I had no clue about it, though $1,200 for a GPU is still ridiculous when I don't need basically a 3090). Any insight into how much money to bring and what time to get there the day before? 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Ian admin June 8 edited June 8 https://community.microcenter.com/discussion/comment/33272#Comment_33272 I am sorry, we do not have pricing on yet to release items, and it will vary by model. The price for video cards does not change dependent on where you are in line. The only thing that would dictate the price is the model and kind of video card. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook DonNephew1989 riverside ✭ June 9 i want to know if the Micro Center in Tustin CA will get the RTX 3070ti on June 10? 1 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook HammerHead444 ✭ June 9 Micro center support says that the 3070 Ti will launch at 10am when the store opens.
