By now, DIY PC builders and enthusiasts surely would’ve seen the short video of Henry Cavill – Geralt of Riva himself – building himself a gaming PC. To the beat of Barry White’s Never, Never Gonna Give You Up”.
Needless to say, Cavill’s build is no slouch, comprising some really beastly parts, deserving of the Man of Steel himself. And no, we’re not talking about his physique. Of course, if you look closely and pay attention, you can actually make out the components Cavill has chosen, as well as the branding despite the blurring. The most obvious point being that Cavill’s new PC is powered by and AMD Ryzen CPU.
As to what these components are, the good folks at TechRadar were more than diligent enough to list down the parts that were shown in the video:
- AMD Ryzen 9 3900X
- ASUS ROG Crosshair VIII Hero (Wi-Fi)
- G.Skill Trident Z RGB 32GB DDR4-3600 CL16 (2 x 16GB)
- ASUS GeForce RTX 2080 Ti 11 GB ROG Strix Gaming OC
- NZXT Kraken Z73
- 2x Samsung 970 Pro 1TB SSDs
- Seasonic Prime TX-1000
- Fractal Design Define 7
- Asus PG279Q ROG Swift
- Razer Huntsman Elite
- Steelseries Arctis Pro Wireless
As to how much Cavill’s build costs, it’s safe to say that his beast of a system costs in excess of RM15000, with the ASUS GeForce RTX 2080 Ti already covering half of that amount, easily.
Cavill’s love for PC gaming is relatively well-known among fans and gamers alike. The Man of Steel and The Witcher star often regales about how he nearly missed his audition for the role of Superman. Had his friend actually not come knocking on his door and interrupting him from playing World of Warcraft.
