R50k in NVMe storage.... That's just stupid. The two screens are also a bit weird. Oh, and that motherboard in ridiculous. Derbauer even says it's stupid.

Just did some quick sums and it looks like my desktop is also well on its way to R100k... goodness. Mostly this is thanks to the 3080 in it, with their crazy prices lately.

Building a R200,000 beast gaming PC

While it is possible to build a competent gaming PC in South Africa for under R20,000, if you want a machine with the latest and best hardware it will cost you well over R200,000, a MyBroadband search for the best prices on top components has revealed.

To put these amounts in perspective, the BankservAfrica Take-home Pay Index for April 2021 showed that the average take-home pay in South Africa is currently around R15,083.

A lower-end gaming PC therefore costs around an average person’s monthly take-home salary in South Africa, while our dream rig costs more than the average annual salary.
