Radical Value Plus Gaming PC

The Radical Value™ Plus offers revolutionary power for the price with the 8th generation Intel Core i7-8700K six core processor.  You get the Intel Z390 Express chipset, supporting S.L.I. or CrossFireX multi-graphics card technologies.  The standard config includes a 500GB NVME Solid State Drive for faster response and quick load times.  For system memory you get a spacious sixteen Gigs which is adequate for anything.

Compared to the Radical Value, this Model 11 PC has comes standard with a Core i7 processor with Intel HyperThreading technology.  This allows each CPU core to look like two, so Windows sees a virtual twelve core processor.  The Radical Value Plus also includes a higher-end case, faster system memory, and an Intel Optane module to add speed on top of more speed.  In summary the Radical Value Plus is a little nicer for the money.

For graphics, the default choice starts you off with the GeForce GTX 1080 card with 8GB of RAM onboard.  This allows you to game with higher framerates and more detail at higher resolutions.  The 1080 offers playable 4K Ultra HD resolution gaming on a number of games, and as the games go back year by year from now, your framerate in them will be higher.  The RTX 2080 offers better, higher-framerate 4K resolution gaming.  The new RTX series gives you the hottest, most exclusive new eye candy with certain special effects accurately raytraced in real-time, thanks to a revolutionary leap in technology.  The RTX 2070 compares to the 1080, but gets you into the ray tracing effects with less cost and less performance.

Whether you choose nVIDIA or AMD graphics, you're ready to run Windows games at peak fidelity.  Enjoy hit games such as PlayerUnknown's BattleGrounds (PUBG), Fortnite, Overwatch, Battlefield 1, Call of Duty: WWII, World of Warcraft: Battle for Azeroth, Hitman, Strange Brigade, and Destiny 2.  In 2018/2019 look forward to Call of Duty: Black Ops 4, Battlefield V, Shadow of the Tomb Raider, Metro Exodus, Assassin's Creed: Odyssey, and more.  RTX effects are expected to be available in triple-A games including Battlefield V, Shadow of the Tomb Raider, and PUB-G, exclusive to high-caliber Windows 10 PCs with the GeForce RTX.

Default options for this PC include Windows 10 Home, built-in 802.11ac WiFi, a Logitech USB keyboard, a premium SteelSeries gaming mouse, and a gaming mouse pad.  With a Radical Value PC, whether you're up to gaming, watching streaming TV online, making videos, or coding apps, you're ready to rock.

System

Click for Technical Specifications


CPU
  • Intel Core i7-8700K Six Core Processor with HyperThreading Technology
  • Six 3.7 GigaHertz processor cores, twelve thread execution units
  • Turbo speeds go up to 4.3 GHz.

  • K model processors are "unlocked", meaning the default CPU speed may be able to be increased, depending on cooling and other factors.  They can also take faster XMP memory.


CPU Cooler
* Your Choice:
 Heatpipe Tower Cooler 
 Pre-Filled and Sealed Liquid Cooler +150.00 

  • The liquid cooling option provides significantly lower CPU temperatures, which theoretically would extend the life of the processor.  Additionally the K model Intel processors can be adjusted to run faster than their regular speeds (overclocking) although this is not covered by the warranty.
  • This sealed cooling system does not require maintenance unlike custom water cooling setups.  Obviously mixing water and electronics could be bad.
  • The liquid cooler unit itself has its own 5-Year manufacturer's warranty.


Memory (RAM)
* Your Choice:
 16 GigaBytes of Cas 16 DDR4-3200 (Two 8GB modules in dual channel) 
 32 GigaBytes of Cas 16 DDR4-3200 (Four 8GB modules in dual channel) +$155.00 

  • 16GB of RAM is overkill, however some games are now asking for 8GB as a minimum requirement.  Enthusiasts tend to go for two times the amount of a good amount.
  • A 32GB Intel Optane module offers a revolutionary dynamic express lane to your NVME SSD.  It is a capability exclusive to Intel processors.

  • Solid State Drives are all memory drives with no mechanical parts, now with enough capacity to begin to replace hard disk drives.  They have the fastest transfer speeds available and technically the right SSDs have overall greater reliability.  The wrong SSDs however are an accident waiting to happen.
  • † Manufacturer reported maximum sequential transfer rate figures. Your performance may vary in use and as the drive adapts to usage.
  • A 500 GigaByte drive gives you a large amount of space, at a more affordable price, with the option to add a hard drive for extra storage.
  • A 1 TeraByte drive offers an enormous amount of room for a massive library of games, applications, TV shows, and music.
  • Windows shows the formatted capacity for all drives as approximately 7% less than the capacity the drive is sold as.  For example 1 TeraByte offers ~930GB; 2TB offers ~1.8TB, etc.

Windows 10 includes Cortana, a speech actuated virtual assistant.  Plug in a microphone (or a webcam would do) and you can say "Hey Cortana" and do web searches by voice.  You can ask Cortana things like "What's the weather like out?" or "What's on my calendar?".  If you ask something it can't answer, it will bring up a web search results page for what you asked.  Cortana is integrated with the new Microsoft Edge web browser which strips out old Internet Explorer parts to work faster.  (Internet Explorer 11 is also included.)  When you buy Microsoft Office 2016, Cortana will also have useful integrations with that too.  Think of Cortana as a helpful, practical, "AI-lite" that takes us closer to the sci-fi inspired computer speech interaction that we've all been waiting for.  You receive free periodic updates to Windows 10 that make Cortana smarter.

Your new Windows 10 Start menu has Live Tiles which provide glanceable information, which you get to customize.  Afterwards the tiles come alive with photos, news headlines, weather reports, and other useful updates.  New Windows 10 apps borrow the popular 3-lines menu icon to hide bigger interface menus within.  This is a more intuitive user interface convention that works on the desktop, and on tablets and smartphones.  The concept is that apps that work on both the PC desktop, and mobile, will be easier to use.

DirectX 12, another Windows 10 exclusive, enables the latest high end gaming graphics on the latest PC hardware.

Windows 10 Pro adds Remote Desktop, the IIS web server, Hyper-V virtualization (bring your own OS licenses), and the ability to join a business network with a Windows Domain.

MalwareBytes' Anti-Malware Premium is useful as a secondary layer of protection against viruses and malware.  This can be beneficial in protecting against certain threats that MalwareBytes can identify and eliminate sooner than some anti-virus companies can.  This is recommended for use in conjunction with a primary anti-virus program which we suggest to be a Symantec/Norton product.  The Premium version of MBAM dynamically protects your computer in real-time from malicious websites and certain in-bound Internet sourced threats.
