My previous supplier seems to have gone out of business and I was looking for a replacement company offering "configure your own" desktop PC builds.  All of the top choices seem to cater exclusively to the gaming community, but cyberpowerpc seems like they are near the top of this market.

My question is, would you consider catering to the software development/business power user community?  In general, the requirements would be as follows:

1) While configuring a computer, allow the use of 2 M2 drives rather than one and 2 hybrid 8 TB drives rather than one (4 total; I assume "combo drive" refers to hybrid drive?).  It is convenient to get these drives from you guys so that the cabling does not have to be redone.
2) When configuring a computer that does not have integrated graphics (eg. Ryzen 3700 system), add a cheap ***not recommended for gaming*** video card option that would be closer to $50
3) In the quick configuration menu option "What do you like to play?", add an option for "Oracle/Software Development".  The configuration would have:
* High end disk performance (eg. suggest Ryzen 570 MotherBoard combined with M2 drive and third gen Ryzen in late 2019) 
* Mid to high end memory performance with high capacity available
* Mid-range CPU, or possibly low end CPU for the high-end chipset (to get the good disk performance)
* Low end graphics, networking, etc.

Possible initial benchmarks for testing such a system:
File copy from M2 disk to M2 disk
File copy from Large magnetic or hybrid disk to M2 disk
Standard Oracle benchmarks (good Oracle performance would probably imply good performance with other DBs)
Standard Java benchmarks (Java software projects can often take advantage of a lot of memory, so handling high memory situations well is a good omen for other software projects)

The above are in order from easiest to less easy, and even just a simple disk copy can tell you a good amount about a system's io performance.

As a side note, it is pretty off-putting when you go to the "quick system" and are asked to choose a typical game to optimize for and "I don't use the computer for games" isn't an option.

You're the third guy that is writing about selling his business, I think that there is a problem with small businesses because of the pandemic.I am working at https://exitadviser.com/business-for-sale and there I am checking the details and information for each business that is introduced in the database. For the last months I have twice or three time more work to do than before the pandemic. But, despite of the fact that there are many people which are selling their business, there are a lot of people which are ready to buy. This thing impressed me and I think that it is a perfect balance if we consider the nowadays situation.

Have you thought about combining the disks into a raid array? Yes, because of the reliability of the system will be lower, but if you set up an automatic backup of the system, then this problem can be avoided. Even if you use two m2 disks with a volume of 1tb each in a raid array, then you will only need one small HDD for a full backup of disks. The speed will be exactly twice as high (depending on the disks, it can rise up to 6000 MB / s). I do not know the scope of your activity, but you have paid a lot of attention to the memory system, so I think this parameter will be really important for you. I do not have an example of the assembly, this is only a theory, since all my PCs are as balanced as possible by all criteria, since they need to work with various programs that are demanding both to the processor and to the video card and memory. One of the latest updates is the new software from https://www.cosource.com.au/dot-net-developers which works fine on my machines. If you are really interested in a PC with multiple disks in the raid, then let me know, maybe I will configure a small build for you.

they do off 5% of per rig if you use code NO RUSH also contract the company directly if you are looking for wholesale supplier.
