Only way I could get a 3070

ABS Gladiator Gaming PC - Intel i7 10700F - GeForce RTX 3070 - 16GB DDR4 3000MHz - 1TB Intel M.2 NVMe SSD

Pros: It's a decent enough PC. It's pretty fast and it's got that 3070 which I could not find anywhere for the past 4-5 months. My 2K monitor has never looked better.

Cons: The included microATX motherboard means expansion is limited. I added an SSD and a hard drive and I'm out of SATAs.

Overall Review: I prefer to build my own PC but since graphic card demand is sky high I resorted to buying this. Don't get me wrong, it's a solid PC and has run everything I've thrown at it so far just fine. When you factor in the cost of the components and the free monitor I got it's a good value. I'm just salty about the fact I couldn't get a graphics card so I could choose the components myself.

It's a working KVM

Pros: Works w/ my wireless mouse. Switching between systems is smooth.

Cons: Buzzing/popping in the sound system. It changes when the display changes. Might be the switch, might be my HDMI cable.

Overall Review: I got this cause I have my regular "workhorse" Linux system and my gaming system dual booting Windows and Linux. It works as advertised and despite the buzzing/popping I'll be keeping it.

good cheap SSD

Pros: Cheap Fast Small

Cons: Doesn't come with mount. Screw holes don't line up with 3.5" drive space, so I have one screw holding it in

Overall Review: I got this to replace the failing boot HD in my Linux file server. Despite the other hardware being 5-6 years old the BIOS had no problem with seeing the drive and the upgrade went smoothly. Fedora 23 went on very easy as well.
