We collect the most expensive computer from the DNS catalog for the summer of 2020


In the process of building a computer, the budget is usually the starting point. But what if the question of price does not bother you at all? Let’s try to assemble a gaming computer without price limits. Down with logic – we take the most expensive!

Wealthy person’s computer Intel configuration
Motherboard and Processor
This assembly is based on the MSI Creator X299 motherboard, even its name translates as “creator”.

Motherboard MSI Creator X299
This is not just a motherboard – this is a real piece of engineering art. High-quality element base, an abundance of expansion slots. It has everything and more than you might need.

It is still a mystery how many cores a modern processor should have. In the context of this assembly, the 18-core 36-thread Intel Core i9-10980XE BOX processor will certainly fit perfectly.

Processor Intel Core i9-10980XE BOX
Some will say that this is too much. Situations are different, the cores will definitely not turn out to be superfluous. Especially in anticipation of the release of new consoles and the introduction of multi-core optimization in modern games.

Cooling and housing

Since this processor is characterized by high heat dissipation, self-assembled liquid CBO Alphacool Eissturm Hurricane Copper 55 will act as a cooling system, capable of cooling the heat of the processor with a TDP of up to 180 watts.

When assembling a top computer, all its elements must be of the appropriate quality. And even the body!

Case Inwin 928 black
The In Win 928 case is the quintessence of engineering. We can say with confidence that this is a “super-case” – it is designed to create top-level systems, just like ours. Only high-quality materials are used in its design: anodized aluminum up to 4 mm thick and tempered glass. The case weighs an impressive 23.2 kilograms and has dimensions of 582 × 337 × 668 mm – these are not homemade foil crafts for you.

video card

The GPU is an Nvidia graphics card from EVGA GeForce RTX 2080 Ti FTW3 ULTRA GAMING.

The choice of Nvidia graphics cards was based solely on performance and AMD’s inability to compete in the top segment even in the twilight of the Turing architecture. NVIDIA has already discontinued the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti graphics card and other RTX 20 series models. EVGA is little known in Russia, but it is famous for its high quality workmanship and international warranty. They are so confident in their products that they do not even put seals on products.


RAM is a fairly important parameter in the system. An important role is played not only by volume, but also by frequency. The choice fell on the Crucial Ballistix MAX RGB [BLM2K16G40C18U4B] 32 GB.

Four sets of memory will fit perfectly into this assembly, since the motherboard allows you to install up to eight modules. Together, you get a phenomenal volume of 128 GB and a high frequency of 4000 MHz with low latency.


The issue of RAM has been resolved, now it’s time to think about memory for storing information.

In this assembly, I decided to stop using outdated, slow and noisy HDDs. And what hard drives, when we are rich and do not deny ourselves anything. Their place will be taken by high-performance NVMe SSD drives.

The main drive is WD Black SN750 [WDS200T3X0C-00SJG0] with a capacity of 2 TB.

An 8TB Gigabyte AORUS Gen4 AIC [GP-ASACNE6800TTTDA] with phenomenal sequential read and write speeds up to 15,000MB is used as an additional drive.

The assembly is powered by an EVGA SuperNOVA 1000 T2 [220-T2-1000-X2] 1000W Titanium-certified power supply.

If you have one video card, it will be more than enough, but if you plan to make an SLI tandem of the RTX 2080 Ti, it is better to choose a more powerful model.

Wealthy person’s computer AMD configuration
Most of the components in the Intel assembly will be used in this assembly. The exception is the motherboard, processor and cooling system.

The AMD-based system is based on the GIGABYTE TRX40 AORUS XTREME motherboard.

This is a truly top-of-the-line solution from GIGABYTE, specifically designed for true enthusiasts. The board features a 16+3-phase power subsystem with 70-amp mosfets and a new VRM module with direct control of each phase, which guarantees trouble-free operation even with a 64-core Ryzen Threadripper 3990X. The latter, unfortunately, is not available in the DNS store, so we will replace it with an AMD Ryzen Threadripper 3970X BOX processor, which has 32 cores and 64 threads.

The GIGABYTE AORUS LIQUID COOLER 280 ARGB is responsible for cooling this monster.

AORUS fluid systems are designed with the heat dissipation characteristics of all the latest processors in mind, should not be a problem. The GIGABYTE AORUS LIQUID COOLER 280 ARGB is equipped with a bright backlight and an LCD screen that displays the temperature of the processor and the speed of the coolers.

We have finished with the main components of the system unit, the choice of peripherals in both configurations will be the same.

Monitor and sound

43″ Monitor ASUS ROG Swift PG43UQ black

The Asus ROG Swift PG43UQ is the world’s first 43-inch gaming monitor with Display Stream Compression (DSC) technology that delivers smooth 4K display at up to 144Hz. It is also worth noting the high maximum brightness of 1000 cd / m2, due to which the new product also boasts compliance with the requirements of the DisplayHDR 1000 standard.

A good picture requires good sound! An external Focusrite Clarett 4Pre sound card and a Canton 5.1 Movie 365 speaker system will help us here.

Speakers 2.0 Edifier AirPulse A300 82 999 *
Perfectly matched components achieve maximum efficiency and the best sound quality and immersion in the game atmosphere.

Keyboard, mouse and headphones

The point is small, choose a keyboard and mouse, because a computer without these two devices is just a beautiful box. The SteelSeries APEX 7 is a durable mechanical keyboard built with Series 5000 aircraft-grade aluminum.

From mice we take Mad Catz RAT PRO X3. Futuristic looks, phenomenal reliability and sensor Pixart PMW3389 is the most technically advanced and hassle-free sensor.

For a real gamer, headphones are very important, because almost all popular games support co-op or online mode. That is why the SteelSeries Arctis Pro Wireless earphones are included in this assembly.

To get the most positive emotions from the game, you need not only a top-end PC, but also high-quality peripherals.

Among other things, it would be nice to get licensed software.

Operating system Microsoft Windows 10 Professional (for assemblers) 12,999 *

Antivirus Kaspersky Internet Security Multi-Device 2 999 *
Both assemblies cost approximately the same amount of 1,200,000 rubles. What to choose depends only on your preferences in the processor manufacturer. However, it must be admitted that the number of cores in the assemblies differs by about 2 times – 18/36 for the Intel assembly and 32/64 for AMD. Whether this is a significant factor or not to choose an AMD configuration is up to you.
