The Legionnaire - Upgraded to Ryzen 5 5600X for September 2021!
The Legionnaire is Alexander PCs entry level gaming build. It not only gets you in the game, it does so with a current generation, 30-series NVidia GPU at a price that won't break the bank!
For gaming, The Legionnaire now features AMD’s Ryzen 5 5600X processor with AMDs Zen 3 architecture, and a dedicated graphics card in the form of an EVGA GeForce RTX 3060 XC Gaming. This Graphics Card & CPU pairing is perfect for eSports gaming and will pull down plenty of frames for all your favorite titles. Going with this GPU at this price point also scores you a monster 12GB of VRAM - more than enough for use with your VR peripherals, and plenty of horsepower to make a massive upgrade for you in your editing and creative pursuits over previous generation GPUs.
The backbone of this one is an ASUS TUF Gaming B550-Plus (WiFi). The B550 chipset gives you a fantastic platform to play hard now, and to do future upgrades. PCIe Gen 4 ready, and rocking onboard WiFi 6, this one will be able to deliver everything you need to stay on the leading edge for a few years!
We use a PCIe based M.2-2280 NVMe Solid State Drive with 1TB of storage space for this system. Mechanical hard drives have average read and write speeds of 80-160 Mb/s. Our SSDs are a minimum of 3400/1900 Mb/s read/write speeds. If you're still running on an old hard drive or SATA based SSD, you're going to love the difference!
This one not only performs, it delivers the great looks and lights you want: we throw down 16GB of Team T-Force Delta TUF Gaming RGB DDR4-3200 RAM to match the motherboard, provide customizable RGB lights that look great, and give you the low-latency gaming performance you want. We've opted for Corsair's iCUE 220T Airflow case for this one. It's great looking, provides tons of airflow to keep your components cool, and stays quiet as well!
We've chosen a 650-watt 80-plus Gold rated EVGA power supply for this one as well. This will give you plenty of smooth, efficient power. Low-end power supplies shorten the lifespan and the performance of your parts over time with power spikes and sags. A high end unit like this ensures you'll be in the game for years to come!
The entire purpose of this system is to get you in the game at an affordable price in an era of INSANE graphics card prices, and provide you a rock solid platform to make future upgrades if you choose.
The Legionnaire comes with Windows 10 Home 64-bit edition installed and fully updated. We also install and update all necessary drivers prior to shipping your PC.
