Gamers:
Compared to the model above, gaming performance goes up significantly, thanks to the higher-end graphic card, the Nvidia GeForce RTX 2070 Super. You still get the AMD Ryzen 7 3700X CPU as well as 16GB of RAM.
Storage wise, you have two options: a 1TB PCIe NVMe SSD or a 512GB SSD and a 1TB hard drive.

I also recommend a gamer only alternative below. It’s equipped with an Intel Core i7-9700K CPU instead of the AMD Ryzen 7 3700X, as well as more storage capacity. If you only care about gaming performance, the Core i7-9700K offers slightly better gaming performance, about 5% more on average. That said, if you better all around performance and perfectly good gaming performance, this PC, with the AMD Ryzen 3700X, is what I recommend.

Creative Pros:
You still get the AMD Ryzen 7 3700X Eight Core / Sixteen Threads 3.6-4.4GHz CPU, 16GB of RAM, but more high-performance storage with a 1TB SSD, as well as a more powerful graphic card, with more dedicated VRAM, 8GB, allowing it to handle more demanding 3D and video workloads, as well as gaming if you’re into that!
