For the next four days, you could get into PC gaming with a pretty ballin’ system for just $999. Now spending that much on a PC might not sound like a good deal, until you see the spec list. It’s an ABS system, which means it’s built using a variety of parts, and is backed by Newegg. ABS Computers is owned by Newegg, by the way. So you know you’re getting a good deal.
But enough waffling, what’s actually in the system? The PC itself is branded by ABS, but uses all off-the-shelf parts.
ABS Master Gaming PC Specs
The system has the following parts:
Ryzen 5 3rd Gen 3600 (3.60GHz)
A solid option from AMD that offers excellent performance for 1080p and even 1440p gaming in some titles. The Ryzen 5 line has long been shown to be dependable into its 3rd generation. And when paired with the stellar GPU in this build, there’s not a whiff of bottlenecking to be seen. The system uses an AMD B450 motherboard with room for upgrade options when 4th gen Ryzen drops.
NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 SUPER 8GB
An incredible inclusion for a prebuilt, especially at this price. The card normally retails at $400+ making this a must for any 1080p gamer looking to get into the hobby. If you have someone looking for a new PC and they don’t want to worry about building their own, this is one of the best deals out right now.
Also included is 16GB DDR4 3000MHz, which helps boost Ryzen to even higher levels of performance. The SSD is a SATA SSD, so no NVMe benefits unfortunately, still a 512 GB SSD is enough for basic use and can even hold both the OS and some games. A decent upgrade option to throw in would be a larger HDD for bulk game storage. And if you have the cash, invest in a larger SSD instead for around $200.
You also get a 550w Rosewill PSU and DEEPCOOL MATREXX 50 Mid-Tower case, which is fine, and there looks to be plenty of room for cable management. There are even four included RGB fans, a hidden cost that many users might miss.
Sadly, there are no extras included for that $999 price. But the pricing of a similar build would run about the same from a competitor like Cyberpower, with one key difference. The Cyberpower system at this price point only includes a 1660 SUPER. The $200 card is solid for 1080p at medium to high settings but, it is far outclassed by the 2060 SUPER. And since it’s prebuilt, you do get some level of RMA support from Newegg for it, which is much harder to handle on a custom-built system you put together yourself. For clarity, there’s a 30-day return policy and a one-year warranty.
