Unicorn Build of the Month VS This?

Post by Johneames » Tue Oct 03, 2017 11:54 pm

Hey guys,
I've been looking into getting myself a new machine for both work (BIM software such as Autodesk REVIT) and gaming (mostly want to run WoW on highest graphics). I'm not too knowledgeable regarding hardware so it would be great to have some advice. I'm looking to get myself something that will last a while, not just for this generation.
So, I have been looking at this pre-assembled build:
Case: Corsair Carbide Series Clear 400C Mid Tower
Power Supply: Corsair 600W VS600 PFC Active Bivolt Automatic
CPU: Intel Core i7 7700K 4.2GHz 8MB 7ª Generation Kaby Lake LGA 1151
Heatsink: Air Cooler Delta P/Intel 7700K/6700K FHSA9525S-1378A INTEL LGA 1151
Motherboard: Asus Z170M-PLUS DDR4 WITH OVERCLOCK SUPPORT
Memory: DDR4 Patriot Viper 8GB 2400MHz (x2)
Graphics Card: GeForce GTX 1080 FTW2 DT GAMING 8GB GDDR5X
Hard drive: SSHD Seagate Hibrid (SSD + HD) 1TB 7200RPM 64MB
I'd like to know how does it fare against MMOChampion's Unicorn build of the month - is it better or worse?
Please Help.
Thanks !
I didn't find the right solution from the internet.

Use pcpartspicker.com. This will help you determine the best combinations of parts and who has it for the best price. I usually do my builds by buying everything but the CPU & Mobo from Newegg/Amazon.

We have a Micro Center in St. Louis Park. This the cheapest place BY FAR to get CPU + mobo, so look at their bundle deals.
