Now there are a few components I’m not sure like the exact SeaSonic PSU and Fractal Design case, but I picked my best guess for those based on the rest of Superman’s super-build. If you are in USA and you are a movie star, you can click the link to buy the Newegg components.
What’s inside Henry Cavill’s PC
ROG Strix GeForce RTX 2080Ti 11 GB
Currently out of stock.
Trident Z Neo Series (for AMD Ryzen) 32 GB DDR4 3200
ROG Crosshair VIII AMD X570 DDR4 ATX Motherboard
970 Pro 1TB M2 NVMe SSD
Cavill installed 2 in his rig.
Henry Cavill PC Gaming Peripherals
Parts and elements of the video’s initial still image include a gaming keyboard, monitor, and mouse.
Rival 650 Quantum Wireless Game Mouse
This one is a total guess. There is not enough box displayed in the video to make a decision. Excellent mouse, however.
Total estimated cost to build Henry Cavill’s PC
This estimate is very rough, as supply chain disruptions and the overwhelming demand for PC parts and accessories have driven prices up everywhere. Based on the prices currently advertised on Newegg, here is the estimated breakdown (price in USD):
- ROG Strix GeForce RTX 2080Ti 11GB – $ 1,239.99
- RYZEN 9 3900X 12 Core 3.8 GHz – $ 429.99
- G.SKILL Trident Z Neo Series 32GB DDR4 RAM – $ 143.99
- NZXT Kraken Z Series Z73 Liquid Cooler – $ 299.99
- ASUS ROG Crosshair VIII AMD X570 Mobo – $ 556.03
- SeaSonic PRIME TX-1000 power supply – $ 499.99
- Samsung 970 Pro 1TB NVMe SSD (x2) – $ 679.98
- Fractal Design Meshify S2 Tower ATX black – $ 149.99
- Windows 10 Home OEM 64-bit – $ 109.99
Total cost at current prices: $ 4,109.95 USD
So at today’s exchange rates it’s £ 3251.62 / $ 5862.84AUD / $ 5565.37CA … and that’s without the screen, mouse, and keyboard.
So this is it. If you have that kind of money on hand, you can build Superman’s PC. This is probably overkill for most people’s needs, but when it comes to PC gaming my philosophy is “figure out how much you can afford, then double it, then find a way to save. This money”.
