    Could have saved ~£250 with 10600k instead of the 10900k and that's most of the difference between a 2080 Super and a 2080 Ti.

    Choked off front intake and poorly configured fans seems to be the default on prebuilts these days, not much point mentioning it.

    "High-end Core i9-10900K gaming for under £2K."

    With two seriously powerful "gaming" consoles about to be released (thanks to Zen2 and RDNA2) - and a price that will seriously undercut any 'medium' gaming PC (let alone this £2000 option), I suspect there's going to be a general rethink amongst a not so insignificant number of current PC owners. Quite frankly, c£1000+ for a graphics card is insane.

    Prices are insane, but whilst people are willing to spend over 1K on a smartphone every 2 years, then I can't see the prices coming down much with the 30 series. I mean, if you are an enthusiast gamer then you get more use/value out of a 1K GPU than a week abroad even if you swap it out every generation, so there are far more people willing to pay these prices than a lot realise. Hell even I caved and bought a 2080 last time...
