I am currently running an out of date piece of crap! Looking to replace it all besides crucial ssd and a 1tb wd black HDD

Price: 2000$ usd - 2500$ usd
144hz monitor 27 inches at least
would really like a 1080ti water-cooled version, Just really like the concept
Also Would like an AIO cooler
The computer would be used for gaming and will be overclocked
Color scheme just keep it coordinated, don't care on specific colors.

Thanks again for any builds!

Monitor: [ Register or Signin to view external links. ] ($599.89 @ OutletPC)
Total: $2411.05

Included a hybrid 1080Ti and AIO as requested. However, I'd just save the $60 and get an EVGA FT3 1080Ti instead. Also, went balls out for monitor, you could easily save $100-150 if you sacrifice G-Sync, which arguably isn't all that important at higher refresh rates anyway, so it would really just be a nice feature to have for the e-peen. Added a 500GB 860 EVO, I know you have storage to re-use, including an SSD. However, more SSD space is never bad and the 860 EVO is a killer SSD and $110 for 500GB is great, best price since like October 2016. Went with a high end case due to the budget, you could easily save like $70 there though by going with something like an NZXT H500. As for CPU cooler, I'd really recommend air cooling. I have a Kraken X61(X62 predecessor) and am looking to swap out to a Be Quiet! air cooler. If you're adamant on going with an AIO though, X62 would be my option, but an X52 would also be fine for $25 less, just a little noisier. Though to be fair, if quietness is a selling point, that leads us back to air cooling.

If you switch to air cooling for CPU+GPU, sacrifice G-Sync in the monitor, and get the $70 case, you'll be right around $2000.

Okay so a couple of questions! Any Reason we went AMD over Intel? I am more of an intel person but thats just because of name. Is the Ryzen 7 comparable to the Intel i7s? Performace wise where will this computer stand? Max settings most games or medium to high?
