CyberpowerPC Prebuilt Computer

This is "Amazon's Choice" for a gaming PC.
https://www.amazon.com/CYBERPOWERPC-.../dp/B06XGXDXZF

With empty slots to upgrade ram or a second gpu in the future, this seems like a good buy to me.
The only thing I would do differently if I built from scratch would be to have a bigger SSD.

What are your thoughts on this build?

Seems fine.

1080ti may be overkill, depending on what you're using and what you're doing.

On Sept 4-6 the price dropped to 1799.99. Maybe keep an eye on?

PS. I used the Honey app to know this. They can also alert you.

Sounds like a labor day sale.
Is there another holiday like that coming up soon?

It has dipped on non-holidays. But

Black Friday of course.

I have a similar build but I use it for hardcore gaming. If you're just using it for video editing and rendering that is too much.
