Hi all, I was looking to build a new gaming system but glad i waited till NVidia announced new GPU.

I have the following components i'm thinking to make the build. Would this system be good to play pretty much all games in 4k and handle capturing footage from a PS4 and eventually PS5.

PC will be used for high end gaming and video editing.
Monitor wise i'm looking for a good 4k something that would work well with the new graphics card.

Motherboard:Asus Rog Strix B550-F Gaming (WIFI) DDR4 ATX

Processor:AMD Ryzen 9 3900x AM4

Memory:G Skill Trident Z Royal Silver 16GB (2 x 8GB) 3000MHz C16 Kit32GB in total x2

Power Suppy:ROG STRIX 850W WHITE EDITION 80 PLUS GOLD MODULAR POWER SUPPLY

CPU Cooler:ROG STRIX LC WHITE EDITION PERFORMANCE RGB AIO CPU LIQUID COOLER - 360MM

Case:ROG STRIX HELIOS "WHITE EDITION" MIDI-TOWER ARGB GAMING CASE - WHITE TEMPERED GLASS

Graphics Card:3090 or 3080

HD:WD 500gb M2 SSD & Samsung 1TB SSD

Case Fans:Corsaid LLI20 RGB 120mm White Triple Fans

Case Controller:Corsair commander pro fan RGB lighting control

Elgato 4K capture card

From what I have read, the case has built in triple fans at the front but are 3-pin connection. I wanted to change the case fans to all white RGB to keep the white theme. Would the Corsair commander be sufficient to do this.

Thanks all, any feedback or recommendations would be much appreciated.

Total budget around £3,000 inc monitor

Honestly there is so little data on the amount of heat and cooling the 3090 will need that i wouldn't make any rash decisions. The thing takes 350w by itself..... thats a **** ton. your 3900x only takes 142-170w.

Edit: plus the way the card was showed on how it is handling hot airflow it shows it literally pushing its hot air up towards the cpu lmao.....

142-170W would be actual power consumption from a 3900x, not it's TDP. The 3900x has a 105W TDP. Regardless, you can't really compare the TDP of a CPU and a GPU. You also can't really compare TDP between Intel, AMD, and/or NVidia since they all calculate it differently.

Historically, x80Ti class GPU's have pulled 300-350W or more under load. So if the RTX 3090 actually uses around 350W under load, I wouldn't be that concerned, it's expected with a top tier card.

That Asus AIO is over-priced, and I definitely wouldn't recommend it but if it's what you're gonna buy, then it's what you're gonna buy.

The case and PSU on the other hand, you definitely shouldn't buy. The case is pretty terrible, and horrendously over-priced. There are better, cheaper alternatives for case and PSU for sure.

I don't understand why you'd throw all that money at a 3900x and over-priced Asus products, but only go for a B550 motherboard. Save a shit ton on the case, cooler and PSU, and then put that money towards a nice Asus X570 mobo and more than 16GB RAM.


If you're really going to drop 3 grand, then I'd do something like this;
PCPartPicker Part List

CPU: AMD Ryzen 9 3900X 3.8 GHz 12-Core Processor (£401.44 @ Amazon UK)
Motherboard: Asus ROG Strix X570-F Gaming ATX AM4 Motherboard (£220.28 @ Alza)
Memory: Team T-FORCE VULCAN Z 32 GB (2 x 16 GB) DDR4-3200 CL16 Memory (£96.56 @ Amazon UK)
Storage: Samsung 970 Evo 1 TB M.2-2280 NVME Solid State Drive (£138.40 @ Alza)
Storage: Sabrent Rocket Q 1 TB M.2-2280 NVME Solid State Drive (£109.99 @ Amazon UK)
Storage: Toshiba X300 4 TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive (£95.48 @ Amazon UK)
Video Card: MSI GeForce RTX 2080 SUPER 8 GB GAMING X TRIO Video Card (£699.99 @ CCL Computers)
Case: Lian Li PC-O11 Dynamic ATX Full Tower Case (£114.95 @ AWD-IT)
Power Supply: Super Flower Leadex III Gold 750 W 80+ Gold Certified Fully Modular ATX Power Supply (£99.95 @ Currys PC World)
Monitor: Asus ROG Strix XG27UQ 27.0" 3840x2160 144 Hz Monitor (£818.08 @ Newegg UK)
Total: £2795.12

Swap the RTX 2080 Super for an RTX 3080 though obviously. 200 quid left to do what you want for RGB fans, and CPU cooler. I'd personally grab a high-end air cooler and 3-5x Be Quiet! SilentWings 3 fans. If you want RGB fans, then Corsair LL and a Commander Pro are probably your easiest option- or just swap the Lian-Li case for a Phanteks P500A digital which will come with some RGB fans;

Alternatively, Phanteks do Halos RGB fan frames which you could just use with any non RGB case fans;
