Introduction


A big thank you to iBUYPOWER for providing the Gaming RDY L20IRG201 for review.

iBUYPOWER has been around for years, having gotten their start back in 1999. Since then, they have been delivering entry-level to high-end gaming rigs to gamers, game developers, LAN centers, eSports tournaments, and regular consumers. While they don't have the recognition Dell or HP has, iBUYPOWER is still a recognizable brand in the PC gaming space with systems available both via their website or from retailers such as Newegg, Amazon, Best Buy, Walmart, Fry's Electronics, and even Costco. Suffice it to say they have grown to become a highly recognizable boutique PC vendor with a wide range of desktops, laptops, custom cases, peripherals, gaming chairs, and even regular components.


In today's review, I will be looking at iBUYPOWER's Gaming RDY L20IRG201. This model breaks from the typical Intel gaming rig build. Instead, it packs an AMD Ryzen 3900X 12c/24t processor on an x570 board. For rendering out all those intense action scenes in your favorite games, they have paired the Ryzen CPU with an MSI NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2070 Super Ventus OC. Add in RGB LEDs, a chassis with tempered glass panels, and a massive 1 TB NVMe SSD, and you have the makings of a truly solid system. The best part is it doesn't even break the bank as far as boutique systems go with the MSRP being a reasonable $1799 for the parts used.
