I am in the process of determining what type of PC I'd like to buy in the next few months. I've built myself in the past, but I am more willing now to pay the premium for a professional PC builder for peace of mind, support, and warranty.
I've been mostly looking into Dell/Alienware and Origin PC and would appreciate any feedback from anyone who has had experience using them in the past. If there are other builders that you would recommend, I would appreciate hearing about them as well. If I were to choose today, I'd probably go with Origin, even though the price is a little higher.
Additionally, I am thinking that the sweet spot right now is the i5-7600 (not sure if I want the unlocked K version or not) in terms of CPU. The other major decision is to go with a 1080 or a 1080 Ti. The goal is for this machine to last 4-5 years if possible, so I am thinking the price difference between the 1080 and the 1080 Ti may be worth it.
Appreciate any and all insight regarding this, from builders to whether or not my thoughts around CPU and GPU are accurate given my need to buy a machine that can last 4-5 years.
