Up next is another custom PC. This time is a setup by Adamant, a liquid-cooled system with a powerhouse CPU AMD Threadripper 3990X. The powerful PC features 2 TB of SSD and 256 GBs of RAM.

In the end, this PC costs an eye-popping $13,199.99.

Liquid-cooled PCs typically rely on water to keep things from getting too hot. The water cycles through the PC and shifts heat away from components prone to overheating — a lot like a radiator. Other PCs rely on air to stay cool. Experts say there are some key differences between the two options, but one of the most obvious is the visual design. Liquid-cooled PCs are usually “flashier.”

The HP Z8 G4 Workstation is a gaming PC that hits the top of its class for high-power performance in complicated machine learning tasks, as well as industry-leading editing. This PC can edit 8K in real-time, no questions asked, as well as run the most complicated visual and statistical simulations.

Its data-processing power alone is mouthwatering due to its 512 GB of usable RAM.

This PC has the power to run any game on the highest imaginable level, a level that would only ever be needed by industry professionals or high-level eSports gamers. Even then, this $31,733.99 PC is overkill in the best possible ways.

Did you know?

Cloud computing is the accepted way to complete workstation tasks without a rig like this. But not even the best connection to your database can compete with the local computing power you get with the Z8 Workstation. The data capacity, low latency, and industry-leading security at your fingertips is far superior.

Brand: 8Pack

The 8Pack OrionX PC is currently one of the most expensive PCs on the market. This rig is massive. It has probably the most complex, effective, and expensive water-cooling setup of any PC we’ve ever seen.

It has two separate rigs, fully customizable, in the Phanteks Elite Full Tower PC setup, which has an insane i-97980 XE processor that can be overclocked to 4.6GHz, minimum.

The reservoirs for the 8Pack water system are integrated with the chassis, showing off a crazy array of LED lighting. The cables are sleeved and display the colored coolant for maximum bragging rights. It makes your PC look like it’s being supercharged like a Batman villain.

Up to 128GB of DDR4-RAM and a 14 TB Seagate hard disk drive give the 8Pack OrionX PC the top spot on this list, “clocking” in at $43,000 with all the customizable options installed.

Did you know?

The water-cooling system is seriously the showstopper in this rig. There are three cooling loops, each with their own Aqua Computer controllers, which allows the user to manage them separately. The CPU itself has a 480 mm radiator set up for cooling. All these systems have unique components, including an 8Pack custom reservoir and pump that looks incredible, even while functioning quietly.

The Edge DL is the most expensive gaming PC.

Coming in at the number one spot is NextComputing’s awe-inspiring Edge DL. The insanely powerful setup features a powerhouse AMD EPYC 7702P processor with a whopping 64 cores. You could call this system overkill, and it’s definitely powerful enough for some intense work beyond the world of gaming, but passionate (and rich) players would have a great time with this PC.

Beyond that powerful processor, this PC offers plenty of memory (256 GB to be exact) and a stripped-back, simple design. It may not be flashy, but the Edge DL makes up for it with a more-than-capable configuration of processing power and memory.

Did you know?

Beyond this crazy-powerful setup, NextComputing offers professional-grade NVIDIA systems that sell for thousands.
