Pros: SUPER fast, handles VR with the class youd expect from these specs, and every game on Ultra.
Cons: Not enough front USB ports
Overall Review: I was really impressed when I received it. The graphics card was a bit of a shot in the dark as far as brand, but I ended up with an MSI 3080 which Im definitely satisfied with!
Due to scalpers, we are in a pre-built PC era, and after doing a LOT of shopping around, this is what I went with. Ive had an Alienware Aurora R6 for about 6 years and my 1080ti was starting to give me problems. So, I upgraded! And boy am I glad I did! If youre thinking about doing it and have the $3k to spend, DO IT! You wont regret it!
The only issue Ive ran in with was with USB ports. There are only a couple on the front, and my Reverb G2 didnt like any of the USB ports at all in the motherboard, so its taking up one of the slots in the front. I have a Fanatec DD1 racing setup that requires USB, plus a HOTAS, Rocksmith cable, Xbox controller receiver, Arctis receiver, long story short, I had to buy a powered USB hub.
