This desktop with a Core i7-7700K and GeForce GTX 1080 is on sale for $1,450

One way to sidestep the inflated price tags attached to graphics cards is to buy a prebuilt system. It's not as fun as building your own, but you can potentially save a few bucks by going that route. If that's the direction you want to go, one such option is the ABS Bearcat Barrage with a Core i7-7700K processor and GeForce GTX 1080 graphics card tucked inside.

The system is on sale today at Newegg for $1,450, down from its $1,700 list price. In addition to the Core i7-7700K CPU and GeForce GTX 1080, it also has:

  • 16GB DDR4-2400 RAM
  • 240GB solid state drive
  • 2TB hard drive
  • 24X DVD burner
  • 600W power suppy
  • Windows 10 Home 64-bit
  • Keyboard and mouse

We did a quick price check on the individual components and came to roughly $1,850, including the cost of Windows 10, or $1,750 without. That's based on the GeForce GTX 1080's MSRP ($699). 

The price gap lessens if you price search and take advantage of mail-in-rebates, but overall this is a solid collection of parts for the money.
