    PC Source/Parts Source Help!

    Hey everyone,


    I have run into a snag getting my new PC to replace the one that was hit by lightning last month. I have been a long time customer of Dell but they have screwed up in this order. I ordered a XPS 8930 with an i9-9900k, 32gb RAM, NVIDIA RTX-2080 Super, 1TB SSD and 1TB HDD. They told me on this past Monday the PC would be in build this week and shipped for delivery no later than Friday but as of today, they delayed the delivery to nearly July citing parts supply issues. I know other folks who received their new PCs from Dell so I guess I fell into that unlucky slot.


    Anyhow, am looking for suggestions on either a reputable full build PC supplier or a parts supplier who can fulfil my needs so I can build it on my own. I had about $2800 set into this order with plans to add 2 more SSDs in once I received it from Dell. Any and all suggestions are welcome.


    As I typed this, Dell asked that I give them 24 to 48 hours to get one of their customer care case specialists to contact and help me but I fear more song and dance via discount offers to appease me to put up with the new delay. Not going to happen!

    Falcon-Northwest Computers is the one I have used since the 1990s, Storm. A bit expensive but they are solid and stand behind their machines. I have had a total of 6 Mach V's since 1990 and each have run all that I have thrown at them.

    They have a configuator on their website.

    Best wishes,
    Odie

    AMD Ryzen 9 3950 - Check out the Specs

    On sale today at NewEgg for $699! Pair it with a RTX 2080 Ti (about $1200) and you still have about $900 for the remainder of the stuff you need (maybe even re-use some of your old stuff). You can do it! (I would do it that way if my wife let me have $2800 without complaint.)

    I am settled on the Falcon Northwest PC build and I know you and others here have advocated them. Their well known quality and warranty speaks for itself. I am also going to build another PC with similar specs (based on suggestions here) as a backup in case anything unforeseen happens again. I just spent a small fortune on a Whole House Surge Protection System and Lightning Strike Protection with a total of 3 new grounding rods (which meet current code) but it's well worth the price to help prevent a strike and damage. Thanks for the help all!
