The Spartan - AMD
THIS. IS. SPARTAAAAA!
No build called The Spartan could credibly amount to anything worthy of that name without serious gaming horsepower AND great looks!
Serious gaming horsepower - that's the name of the game with the NVidia Ampere-driven GeForce RTX 3070 graphics card lineup. The NVidia driven 2nd-generation RTX 3070's deliver performance at RTX 2080 Ti levels for a fraction of the price. Welcome to the Ampere Architecture revolution!
We build everything at this level on nothing but the best available motherboard chipset, and for AMD-based systems that means X570. So we opt for a gaming-focused ASUS TUF Gaming X570-Plus (WiFi) motherboard. PCIe Gen 4, onboard WiFi, and a top notch VRM are some of the reasons why this one's a winner. We pair it with the new Zen 3 AMD Ryzen 5 5600X CPU. More Instructions per cycle and higher boost clock speeds make this chip a serious gaming proposition.
After that, it's a 1 TB Sabrent Rocket 4.0 PCIe Gen 4 M.2-2280 NVMe Solid State Drive, and 16 GB of battle tested Corsair Vengeance RGB Pro RAM at DDR4-3600 speed.
To power this one, we went with a fully modular 750-watt 80-Plus Gold rated unit to ensure a constant supply of efficient juice. As always, we only use fully modular, *retail version* power supplies from EVGA, Corsair, and Seasonic for our premium level builds.
The only limitation on your gaming with this setup will be your time. You’ll love the looks of this one as well since we housed it in a Corsair iCUE 465X with a trio of the famous Corsair LL120 fans in the front of the case. We added a matching exhaust fan because it looks amazing like that, and it's functional!
We also make sure to include custom cable extensions, so tell us your color choice at checkout!
The Spartan comes with Windows 10 Home 64-bit edition installed and fully updated. We also install and update all necessary drivers prior to shipping your new PC home to you!
