Looking to build the ultimate PC? If the price is no object, this is the hardware you want, from Intel’s Core i9 chips to Nvidia’s GeForce GTX 1080 Ti.
The heart of a PC is its processor. The ultimate choice is Intel’s 18-core Core i9-7980XE, and that should be an open ticket to be a high ranking member of the “PC Master Race” since this monster costs a cool $2,000-plus on Newegg. This monster reigns supreme in single-threaded performance, and since its 18 cores outnumber anything else currently available from Intel or AMD, the 7900X’s comes out on top of our multi-core tests, too.
