The Centurion - Now with Ryzen 5 5600X!
The Centurion (AMD) is Alexander PCs Tier 1 Premium Level gaming build. We designed this model specifically for gaming performance - though of course it will do other things well, too.
The centerpiece of this system for gaming excellence is the NVidia GeForce RTX 3060 Ti. No messing around, this GPU is faster than the previous generation 2080 Super, at a much lower price. Elite level gaming is now accessible in a well-balanced system that's also affordable.
We platform this one on the ASUS TUF Gaming B550-Plus (WiFi) to guarantee gaming optimization and future upgrade-ability. PCIe Gen 4 support and WiFi 6 mean you'll have the ability to stay on the leading edge of tech for the next few years, and access to ASUS' Armoury Crate means you can easily keep drivers and firmware up to date and make sure you're always able to stay in the game. The system is driven by the awesome AMD Ryzen 5 5600X CPU with 6 cores/12 threads and the AMD Zen 3 architecture means it can throw down boost clock speeds of 4.6 GHz!
To ensure we take advantage of the PCIe Gen 4 SSD support, we use a Sabrent Rocket 4.0 M.2-2280 NVMe SSD that's capable of eye-watering date transfer speeds - 5,000 MB/s (read) and 4,400 MB/s (write). Then we add some pop - and some colors - with 16GB of retail version Performance RGB RAM. We up the ante to 3600 MHz speed for this one.
This machine is definitely battle ready for your First Person Shooter and MMO games. It not only performs, it also looks good doing it. The Centurion comes housed in the brand spanking new Lian Li LANCOOL 215 case. This one has a mesh front with two massive 200mm ARGB fans for superior airflow as well as a little flair. This one is the reigning Gamers Nexus Best Overall case - and that doesn't come easy!
To power this rig, we opt for 750-watts of super efficient 80-plus gold rated power. And as always, we only use fully modular, *retail version* power supplies from top tier manufacturers such as Seasonic, EVGA, and Corsair for our premium gaming builds.
The Centurion comes with Windows 10 Home 64-bit edition installed and fully updated. We also install and update all necessary drivers prior to sending your new PC home to you!
