Things To Consider
Whether you are looking into buying an RTX 3070 prebuilt PC due to stock issues, scalper prices, or you simply haven’t got the time to build one for yourself, there are a few areas to consider first.
Of course, you haven’t got anything like compatibility to worry about when buying a prebuilt PC but we need to ensure one of these 3070 prebuilts can handle your individual gaming needs.
Why Buy An RTX 3070 Prebuilt PC?
The RTX 3070, up until the prices went mental, was one of the best price-to-performance cards on the market, offering a more affordable option into the future of gaming. The 3070 GPU is a beast and with a 3070 prebuilt PC, you are going to have enough power to smash every game you desire up to 1440p resolution in max settings.
The RTX 3070 has similar performance to the older RTX 2080 Ti, so there is some 4K performance but if you’re a 4K gamer you are going to want to aim a little higher, with the RTX 3080 offering much better results in this area.
The advantages of buying a 3070 prebuilt are mainly down to its modern hardware, giving you a powerful gaming system for years to come. All of our RTX 3070 prebuilts above are from reputable manufacturers and while their warranties and benefits may differ from each other, they all produce high-end results.
RTX 3070 Prebuilt Gaming PC Vs. Custom
We always recommend that you build your own computer here at WePC and that is for one simple reason – value. It is no secret that you can squeeze in better hardware for your cash when building your own system, with the markup on prebuilt computers usually costing the same amount as an entire component ($100-$300).
While the performance of these 3070 prebuilt PCs is solid, when building your own you could in theory include a better CPU or GPU into your computer without spending more. This means you could get even better performance for your hard-earned cash, get better in-game results, and future-proof your investment for longer.
The main selling point behind a prebuilt is it saves you the hassle. We understand that not everyone knows how to build a computer and may not even have the time to learn this new skill, so the convenience of a prebuilt makes a lot of sense. Of course, there are many more benefits to buying a prebuilt gaming PC from manufacturers, obviously, it takes the stress away from finding all the compatible components, while also preventing damage to said components when the time comes to build it.
With a prebuilt gaming PC, you are going to be able to send it back to the manufacturer if anything goes wrong. Furthermore, if you feel you need an upgrade, suppliers will often do this for you or at least insist you send it to them for an upgrade. Manufacturers will also dish out a warranty, usually covering parts and labor for around a year but some companies offer impressive warranties and you can always spend extra on insurance, giving you a lengthy/ lifetime warranty.
A prebuilt from the biggest manufacturers around the world aren’t just packaged nicely for you either, they normally stress test the system to ensure the components are working before shipping and that it performs as it should. You will also receive your system with software, usually with Windows and drivers pre-installed, so you can simply plug it in and start downloading games.
