Hi, all.

Firstly, I'm looking for build recommendations for a Warcraft player and online teacher.  I use an online platform, much like live streaming.  Obviously, I need the most money to be spent on the processor and memory and not necessarily the GPU.  My budget is 1.5K.  Secondly, what is the benefit from building through Costco?  Is it simply the additional warranty and ease of return?

Thanks in  advance.

No benefit at all. Your chance of getting junk goes way up buying from any third party retailer. these off the shelf systems, you can never be sure what PSU, GPU and RAM your getting.

Especially the PSU, you may get a decent one, you may well get junk. CP can throw in anything they have laying around. If they throw in a "standard" they are junk, provide uneven power (ripples) have a high failure rate and have fried systems.

Come here, post the full specs of what you are looking at. Post a max budget and what the system is for. The membership will chime in with suggestions for a solid build.

Here is a solid custom build. Nice case, fans, upper end GPU, decent air cooler, ultra fast NVe M2 drive, additional HD.

Base price $1,535.00 use check out code spring0410 or NORUSH for 5% off the total. Gets you to $1,459.00. WIth ultra care packing and a extended warranty with a full year of free shipping.
