ROG Strix Gaming Desktop With 8-Core 5800X, RTX 3070, 16GB RAM & More, Can Be Yours for $1,999


With the chip shortage making things extremely difficult for gamers and creative professionals that require high-end machines, the only choice left is to spend ludicrous amounts of money on these components right? Not quite, because pre-built gaming desktop PCs provide a way out, and the ROG Strix GA15DK provides everything you need, whether it is gaming, content creation, or tackling regular tasks, at a price of $1,999.

Some of you might be thinking that this price is outrageous but have you seen what a standalone GeForce RTX 3070 costs these days? If you do not, then you might want to take a look because we are confident that afterward, you will immediately believe that this package is as affordable as it gets with all that you are getting. Aside from the GPU, you get an 8-core, 16-thread Ryzen 7 5800X processor, coupled with 16GB of DDR4 RAM running at 3200MHz. You can upgrade the RAM later on if you wish, and before you ask, you can also replace the CPU for improved compute performance.

For storage, you get a 512GB SSD, plus a 1TB mechanical hard drive. Being a gaming desktop PC, there is plenty of room for expansion, as you get four SATA III ports for additional hard drives or solid state drives. There is another PCIe slot to expand your storage with M.2 NVMe SSDs and an adapter, but that slot is populated by a Wi-Fi 5 card, which you can remove if you want to. There is also a single M.2 slot for further expansion.

For I/O, at the front, you get one USB 3.2 Type-A port, one USB 3.2 Type-C port, one headphone jack, and one microphone port. At the back, you get four USB 3.2 Gen 1 ports, two USB 3.2 Gen 2 ports, one Ethernet jack, and one HDMI-out port. In short, if you are looking for a decent gaming desktop PC but are discouraged by the prices brought to you by the chip shortage, the ROG Strix GA15DK is the best ‘bang for your buck’ machine right now and provides a safe haven for those not wanting to spend ridiculous amounts of money on standalone PC parts.

Unfortunately, at the time of writing, there are only four units remaining, so you should hurry before all those pre-built machines are sold out.
