The system arrived with Paul on Monday 24th August, and he has since been in touch to share these photos with us. Thankfully everything arrived safe and sound, and Paul now has the system up and running – and we particularly like that wallpaper Paul!
With an RTX 2080 Ti and Ryzen 7 3700X, this PC should be churning out high frame rate for many years to come.
We would like to thank all the sponsors involved with this giveaway, including AMD, Nvidia, Corsair, ASRock, Phanteks, Zalman, G.Skill, AOC, Kioxia and Seasonic.
KitGuru says: Congratulations Paul and we hope you have fun with the new setup! And a special thanks to all our readers, old and new, for helping us reach the 100K milestone.
