PC gaming can be an expensive hobby in South Africa, whether you’re a gamer on a budget or a hardware enthusiast.
However, if you’ve got a ton of money burning a hole in your pocket and you want to buy some unreasonably expensive hardware, check out the products below:
MSI GeForce GTX 1080 Sea Hawk EK – R16,855
The standard GeForce GTX 1080 is expensive enough locally, but MSI’s custom-built EK water-cooled graphics card sets the pricing bar higher than ever before.
Lian Li DK-04 X Computer Desk- R23,939
The Lian Li DK-04 X is no normal desk.
The desk is actually a computer case, and can hold an ATX-sized gaming PC with integrated controls and bay slots. However, the product could well be worth more than the PC you put inside it.
MSI GT83VR Titan SLI – R94,988
The GT83VR is an ambiguously-named high-end gaming laptop, and actually only includes two GeForce GTX 1080s in SLI rather than two Titans.
Intel Broadwell-E i7-6950X – R30,209
The Intel Braodwell-E i7-6950X 10-core processor is complete overkill for any gaming PC build, and remains the most expensive mainstream Intel processor.
Dell UltraSharp 27-inch 5K Monitor – R33,839
The Dell UltraSharp monitor features clear visual quality and a hefty price tag.
Asus ROG Ares II Dual R9 290X Limited Edition – R25,099
The Asus ROG Ares II Dual R9 290X is a limited edition Dual-GPU graphics card which performs better than a Nvidia Titan Z.
It features a custom-made EK water block and massive graphics processing power.
