    2-3 bundles doesn’t really meet the min 10 in stock rule either…

      I was able to put 75 of these in my shopping cart ($23x,xxx) and take it to checkout, so there's no real indication of how limited the quantity is.

    My math puts it about $450 on top of part cost.

    :edited: no cooler either.

      Once the price drops it might be worth it. As is the 3080 is a much better GPU.

      Same deal with 3090, it's a terrible purchase all things considered.

      • -4 votes

        At least 3090 is still somewhat relevant if you're like architecture by day and gamer by night, 6900xt is only for gaming and it still sucks

        Can't even run cb2077 at 4k medium settings at above 60fps

        • +7 votes

          Unfortunately CP2077 is not the best example to use, considering it's NVIDIA spinsored. Despite being a decent game, it's has way too many issues. Needing a 3rd party fix just to support AMD CPUs properly and Sony pulling it from their online store tells you how broken it is.

          • -1 vote

            @shellshocked: sony pulling it has absolutely nothing to do with PC. they just patched the AMD CPU issue, too.

            • +1 vote

              @Mr Freeze: As I said the game is broken on all platforms. Did you actually read up on the patch, or just heard it supposedly fixes the issues? The 3rd party hex hack works on AMD 8 core CPUs and doesn't cause significant frame drops. The 1.05 patch from CDPR still has those frame drops on 8 core and above CPUs.

        3090 has 24GB memory vs 3080's 10GB. But yes price is steep and 3080TI 20GB is likely to make it redundant in time.

      It's not all that bad at $1599 considering high end 3080's go for about that much and 3090's go for 2.5k+

    How's the new job?

    Damn, they don't have the 6900xt separately. Can you split it?

  • +22 votes

    So the prices on these separately with a quick google:

    5900x: $859 (Centrecom)
    6900 XT: $1599 (Pc Case Gear)
    G.Skill Trident Z Royal DDR4 3600MHz 16GB (2X8): $239 (Amazon)
    ASRock X570 Motherboard: $305 (Umart)

    $3,002 before shipping.

    Where's the deal?

      Plus it's quite pointless to buy just 16gb ram

        This is a gaming only rig, 16gb is more than sufficient

        • +9 votes

          You don't need a 5900x for a gaming rig.

            @Ryanek: You don't need a 6900xt either

        • +3 votes

          I argue if you’re putting a $1600 GPU that uses SAM, you’d want to have more ram in your system than your vram.

        •  

          No it isn’t I have 16gb if you want to have a browser open which I assume most people would it quickly runs out 16 isn’t shit these days you shouldn’t be paging at all most people are too uneducated to realise how ram works

          •  

            @TightBungholio: I run from 3600 to 3950x, rx 580 to 2080ti,and I'm telling you 16gb is fine for most people

        • +2 votes

          Use of 24 vCPUs mean this machine can be used for work in addition to gaming, and therefore it is quite pointless to limit work capabilities by small amount of RAM. Usually there's balance of 1.75GB of RAM per vCPU.

          •  

            @alenpln: I run a 3950x with 2 2080ti (non sli) and just hit the ram limit of 16gb at full load on them all, so it really depends on the workload

            Most people that are productivity oriented is not going to buy a 6000 series gpu to begin with

            • +2 votes

              @ln28909: Think the point is 16gb is more than enough for gaming under 4k.
              By the time 32gb makes any difference really (for gaming, again, not productivity!) you will likely have a DDR5 system

              Memory allocated is not the same as memory required / in use eg Chrome.

              Having said that there are legions of people on reddit who bought 32/64gig ram and want to justify it.
              If you want 32gb for "future proofing" more power to you. But it is misleading to others to state that it is in any way required.

              Any benchmarks will show that is not true
              Just one for example (most recent!) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q7Xf366BJkA

          16gb is not enough for gaming, even at 1080p, you can easily go over that with flight sim. Maybe if you have no other processes running; it may be fine. But if I'm paying $3k I don't wanna have to close other programs before playing games. or if you wanna stream at the same time? If you're buying a 5900x and 6900xt 16gb of ram makes no sense, spend a little more to get 32gb ram, which will easily be enough for now, and if you go for 16gb sticks you'll have the option to upgrade to 64gb down the track if you need it.

          •  

            @Aequitas: Not always correct, I'm fairly sure this kit is dual rank, and having a low capacity makes it easer to tune memory, if you are a benchmark person

            Also, Youre already making sacrifice when buying 6900xt

            •  

              @ln28909: Who cares about benchmark performance? I'm talking real world use cases, like I said yes, no game is going to use over 16gb, but if you have say youtube open, and some other programs in the background, steam, etc, if the game uses say 10gb, then you will quickly run out of memory. and memory tuning makes very little performance difference as compared to running out of memory when playing. I'm a real world use case of this. I was getting 15gb usage regularly while playing flight sim, and so I upgraded to 32gb, and now it regularly uses 17+gb of ram while playing and my fps has jumped by quite a bit.

              How is 6900xt a sacrifice? It's comparable in price to the 3080, which it beats in every test I've seen by around 5%, except for ray tracing tests.

              For only $100 more (3% more cost, less if you need to buy the other parts too) you can get the 32gb kit instead of the 16gb kit and you'll have plenty of headroom. Seems a no brainer in this case. Yes if it was a lower end system I wouldn't be recommending it, without knowing more about the specific scenario, since for most use cases 16gb is plenty. But in a high end system like this, it doesn't make sense to potentially cap the user

              •  

                @Aequitas: 6900xt is an enthusiast grade gpu and enthusiasts would have like 4-10kits of ram so they can choose the one with the best silicon anyway, so if they need more ram capacity, they probably have a few lying around

                This loses in 4k, and pretty much have no features add on, what this can do a 6800xt can pretty much achieve with an overclock

                Pretty much the only way I see people buying 6900xt is if they put it under water maybe occasionally ln2 or some extreme cooling(since 6800xt has an artificial clock limit), and those people would have heaps of ram lying around

                A normal person shouldn't buy this gpu, you'll only buy this if you care about 100 points on time spy or something

                And you'll only buy this combo since you desperately want the gpu, mobo is rubbish too, no bios flashback

      Computer sellers are the modern car salesmen. Honestly they have become the most greedy and dishonest of all retailers.

      I use to run a business in the sector and some of these hard to get items are bought by the workers in the stores (or their family members) then onsold to consumers. Don't worry about bots the employees within these stores have a huge hand in what's happening.

      I thought the reference cards are all the same, just different boxes and warranty, I personally bought the 6800 xt reference card for $1300. it’s expensive but not as bad as the 3080 pricing…

    For those who are going to buy this, make sure to grab another motherboard.

    If you are paying for a 5900X, get a good motherboard that has good VRM cooling.

      yeah i noticed it was pretty average and thats why they are probably sticking it in with the deal, try move stock thats hard to sell :D. If you dont plan on overclocking i dont think its going to be a problem.

    I like the bundle honestly. But not the price :( .

    Considering the specs here, 16GB is underwhelming. I hear the argument that many won't need 32GB for gaming but given the price of the other parts I'd have expected 32GB to be included.

    I couldn't imagine going below 32GB on a desktop today.

    At that price it is not a bargain.

    As others have mentioned, it is cheaper to purchase the parts individually, this is not a deal. Especially given they wont say what 6900xt GPU is actually included, so you can guarantee you are getting the absolute cheapest option possible.

    wow 3k for not even the full build and an average board, only 16gig of ram…a deal for money wasters for sure.

  •  

    garbage.

  •  

    A package priced over MSRP with a fairly average-reviewed motherboard and a "mystery" brand graphics card. Naaa…

  •  

    The prices for the CPU and GPU are quite inflated at the moment, that model of GPU is going for $2100AUD atm, really kinda silly given it launched for $1000USD and the exchange rate with the USD is quite good atm. Scarcity seems to be driving prices sky high.

  •  

    Seems a bit too much…..
    May be premium for the stock at this moment……wait….is it being shipped in Jan 2021 or later!?
