Two days ago Apple began to sell the new iMac Pro, a computer that, by characteristics, has plenty of power to play, although many limitations due to the still large number of games that are not compatible with the operating system of Cupertino equipment.
we wanted to take our imagination to build the gamer computer of our dreams with a price similar to the new iMac Pro, adding these components to the cocktail:
Intel Core i7-8700K Processor 3.7 GHz – € 399.62
Cooler Master Cooler MasterLiquid Pro 280 – 120,45 €
Motherboard MSI Z370 Gaming M5 – € 214.90
Hard Disk Intel Optane 900P 280GB HHHL (€ 431.68)

As you can see, for the amount that an iMac costs we can buy a computer close to the one we would like in our dreams accompanied by a high-quality screen and good peripherals.
The power to move the games of today and the future with the Intel i7 8700K and MSI 1080Ti graphics is beyond doubt, especially when accompanied by some of the fastest SSDs and RAM modules on the market.
