AMD Ryzen And GeForce GTX 1080 Ti For Less Than Intel's Cheapest 8-core CPU

PCWorld is trying to make the point that an AMD Ryzen system delivers great price-to-performance value. This article is sure to stir up fanboys from both sides but, you never know, maybe that was the point all along.

Again: The Ryzen 7 1700 and GTX 1080 Ti combo costs less than the Core i7-6900K alone. Pairing a 6900K with Nvidia’s beast would add a whopping $720 dollars to the cost of a build like this. That’s more than the cost of many complete gaming-dedicated PCs.
