Welcome to Zach’s Friday Feature! As a PC building YouTuber and PC flipper, I have built and sold literally hundreds of gaming PCs and now I want to help Jawa users out by highlighting an awesome PC build every week and talk about it.
Going with a wild one this week, this beautiful pink and white build from Gaming Workstations & Services easily caught my attention. Not seen too often, this color scheme could be exactly what someone is specifically looking for, and with some solid price to performance value it deserves to go to a good home soon!
- Off-META Color Scheme – We obviously have to talk about the color of this one first, you just don’t see pink and white builds nearly as much as we should and this one instantly inspired me to build my own as well. The Morovol mATX case looks amazing with all of the other pink and white products in there and although this might not be up everyone’s alley, this can be exactly what some people are looking for.
- Intel 12th Gen – Despite coming in under $1000, this build is still rocking the latest 12th generation Intel i3 12100F and not only does this dominate budget friendly gaming PCs, but there’s also a ton of upgrade options for the future. Intel’s latest generation of CPUs trumps anything that the budget Ryzen lineup has to offer in terms of speed and gaming performance, and if you play more games that rely on the CPU like CSGO, Valorant, Fortnite, etc you’ll get amazing performance with this chip.
- Water Cooling – Not just the CPU this time, but both the CPU and GPU are water-cooled inside this one! That ID Cooling PinkFlow 240mm AIO is perfect aesthetically for a build like this and it can handle a much more powerful (and warmer) CPU for when you upgrade. The NZXT Kraken G12 + EVGA CLC 120mm AIO combo also looks great inside here to keep the GTX 1080 nice and chilly.
Price to Performance Value:
Hopefully you’re tracking the theme here with the Friday Feature series, I don’t include builds that don’t have solid price to performance. This one is no exception. For $910 you’re getting a very solid deal on a unique aesthetic as well as the Intel i3 12100F, 16GB of Corsair LPX RAM (3200MHz), a GTX 1080 (about RX 6600 performance) as well as water cooling! Comparing against the competition, iBuyPower is selling a Ryzen 5 3600/6500XT build which would perform much slower for $1049, and Lyte is selling an equally priced Ryzen 5 5500/GTX 1650 build which would perform significantly worse as well.
This week’s build is pretty balanced and no immediate upgrade stands out as a necessity right off the bat. For upgrading it’s going to come down to what the buyer specifically is in need of, and some options could include an upgrade to a 12400F for more CPU power, maybe more RAM to get bumped up to 32GB, or if they need more storage they could throw another SSD in there so they have room for Warzone or extra local media.
If you happen to be in the market for a pink/white and super clean gaming PC under $1000, this may be the best option on the internet right now. Gaming Workstations & Services is definitely a Jawa seller that you can trust with their 100% positive reviews (14 totals) and this build is ready to roll and no immediate upgrades are required.
