- With less than four months to go, hardcore gamers are creating a plethora of Cyberpunk 2077-inspired gaming rigs.
- Here’s a list of the top five rigs you wish you had bought in 2019.
- The list includes a DIY setup for ambitious gamers with $500 to spare.
It’s been one heck of a gaming year. And with so many great titles coming out in 2019 you may be tempted to ask, “how could 2020 beat this?” Well, only two words should truly put that question to bed – Cyberpunk 2077.
The hype is real and gamers are gearing up for next decade’s most anticipated release. I decided to scrounge around Reddit and see what lengths people were prepared to go to in order to create a sweet Cyberpunk 2077 rig.
The Cyberpunk 2077 Countdown
None of these are official names, of course, but in keeping with the spirit of their creativity, I added some designations. Coming in at number 5 is the Cyberglow:
The Cyberglow is kitted out with some monster specs including an AMD Ryzen 9 3900X 12-Core Processor and a GeForce RTX 2080 Ti FTW3 graphics card.
It has no less than 12 fans. And if you’re looking for similar ambiance you’re going to have to shell out for these fancy neon wall lights called nanoleafs.
4. Rad-Dad of the Year
Ok, so technically you can’t buy this setup but it still grabs our number 4 spot. Why? Because a rad-dad of the year built this cyber-styled infinity desk for his son:
It cost roughly $500. And if you are in anyway DIY inclined yourself, you too could always just build your own infinity desk. Here are a few more angles from this sweet build:
The Cyberpink rig didn’t rack up as many Reddit votes as the others but boy is it pretty. Just look at it:
The specs are a little older compared to some of the other overachievers. It is, on the other hand, a lot more configurable. The desk adjusts almost magically and caters for seated, standing and couch gaming.
2. The Pixel Joker
The Pixel Joker comes in at number 2. Sporting some fine accessories like a 4k neon logo and a rad pixel lamp, the creative juices are strong with this one.
According to the builder, all six of the RGB fans in this Raidmax Alpha Prime case are remote-controllable.
As for the main specs, this rig is running an AMD chip – the Ryzen 5 2600X. The graphics card is a ZOTAC GTX 1060 6GB.
1. 2019 Cyberpunk 2077 Winner: Candy-Coated
The candy-coated rig is an Intel I9-9900K PC paired with an RTX 2080 Ti FTW3 graphics card. And by now if none of that makes any sense, don’t worry. Just know that it’s a beast of a machine.
The RTX is considered by many to be the top dog in graphics card world. Couple that with Thermaltake’s View 71 case and their Riing RGB CPU cooler and the result is 2019’s sweetest Cyberpunk 2077 rig.
Reddit agrees, thanks to more than 10,000 upvotes. One commenter even points out that Projekt Red uses these exact specs in their official demos. And with that here ends our round up of the sweetest Cyberpunk 2077 rigs you wish you had bought this year.
