If you have a micro center nearby, their builds (Powerspec) are excellent for the price. I have their G313 model.

G350 looks like the model for you: I7-7700K, GTX 1080, 16g ram, solid state drive stock. $1,400.

That's probably your best bet. I have a similar build I built myself around the same price. Microcenter isn't charging that much to build it for you.

I know you said you didn't want to build yourself...but I cry a bit and the money you are going to throw away......tell ya what, send ME the money and I will send you back the spec build and keep the change.

That is a nice build! Sadly there isn't one nearby. I'll see where the closest one is. Appreciate it! Never heard of them till now.

1500 to 1600 dollars gets you a real monster pc and there is no reason to buy pre built.

And you are better off buying a new xx60 card every year than buying a 1070 and sticking with it.

You could also wait a month for Vega and ryzen based prebuilts to come to market. They will be cheaper overall then an equivalent Intel build

what version of windows do you plan on running.. the new Kaby Lake 7th gen processors do NOT work with windows 7 windows update without futzing with a few things to bypass the processor "lock" microsoft put in place

ryzen is going to have the same issue, hope you like windows 10, microsoft isn't giving you a choice
