Need help with new desktop gaming setup.

Nov 25, 2023
Hello! I've always been a laptop person and have only had gaming laptops, never a PC dekstop, but thinking, I realized that I should just get a gaming PC.

So, here are the two I've narrowed down to two from Best Buy.

They are the same brand with some differences.

But before I get into it, just some things to know. I only game on the laptop and browse the web. I don't stream or do the 4k editing, but I want to play heavy AAA games like Alan Wake and Cyberpunk without any lag and smooth graphics.

The first one is: CORSAIR - VENGEANCE i7500 Gaming PC - Intel Core i9 14900KF - 64GB DDR5 6000 MHz Memory NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4090 - 2TB SSD - Black [] $3,949.99 USD

The second is: CORSAIR - VENGEANCE i8200 Gaming PC - Intel Core i9 14900KF - 64GB DDR5 6600 MHz Memory NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4090 - 4TB SSD - Black [] $4,549.99 USD

The Ram, CPU, and the GPU is the same, except the 2 TB additional storage for the i8200 and 6000 vs 6600 MHZ memory. So my question is, is the additional 2 TB and the 660 mhz worth $600 difference? Is it worth it in the long run? Would you personally shell out the additional six hundred bucks?

My second question is the monitor. I found one on Amazon: SAMSUNG 32" Odyssey Neo G8 4K UHD 240Hz 1ms G-Sync 1000R Curved Gaming Monitor. It has both a 4k monitor, along side 240hz (

Is this a good monitor? Would you guys have any other suggestions? I was told that having both a 4k and a 240hz is the way to go, but I hear there's even 5k and 280hz, as well as 360hz. Are those even worth considering?

Thank you so much for your help!
