Which of the following pre-build PC to get?

Need some suggestions on the following pre-build PC

i7-8700, 16G RAM 2666, 256 SSD, GTX 1060 6GB



PS:
- Didn't choose z370 for Aftershock since no K CPU.
- I don't really need the free gift, so think of selling the free gift if I go for Dell or Asus. Then the final cost of the three are on par (roughly) for 3 year warranty.

If you don't need to free gift... Get the aftershock then.

But check the rear output for the b360 board. Enough usb ports or other connector or not m

Thanks.

If I can sell the free gift later, the 3 devices final cost are roughly close to each other I think.

Yes, but why bother going thru the hassle of selling those item in the first place?

Couple of other differences not mentioned:

1) SSD offered by aftershock is a consumer brand Samsung NVME one, the SSDs offered by the other two are NOT NVME(4-5x slower) and might even be OEM branded.

2) Out of the three, Dell has the best customer service quality, hands down. Aftershock comes in a close second, Asus third.

3) DVD drive in the Asus and Dell PCs are completely redundant. DK why in this day and age they still bother including this crap.

Indeed.
I even don't need HDD, plan to continue use my 2TB HDD from old PC.

Looks like only Aftershock has that flexibility.

Hmm, if that were the case you could try to customise the Dell and Asus desktops if possible to remove the HDD option. If not then its quite a shame, you'll have yet another new part(the HDD) to try and sell.

I know for Aftershock you're able to remove the HDD option for somemore cost savings. Other than the SSD/HDD, i see no actual difference between the three in performance.
