Hey all! I currently have a really decent computer, but I am looking to upgrade when the 3090 drops at the end of September. I am afraid I won't have the components in order to successfully run the 3090 to its max settings. Here is a list of my current PC specs

CPU: i7-9700k
Motherboard: ROG z390-e Gaming motherboard
Ram: 16 gb of Corsair vengeance 3200
GPU: Rtx EVGA 2080 XC
Storage: 3Tb Ssd.
PSU: 750w Corsair

I am able to run my current work at a perfect speed. I am just afraid this wont be enough for a 3090.
Would it be worth upgrading to these specs and is it absolutely necessary?

i9-10900k(This is currently out of stock and very expensive, any alternatives?)
z490-e gaming motherboard
850w Thermaltake PSU
32gb Corsair vengeance 3600

Just let me know because I want a pc that can handle all of what these new cards have to offer, but I am not trying to break the bank and I wouldn't mind not having to upgrade at all.

Wait till Gamer's Nexus does their review like everyone else...

64GB @ 3200MHz
2080 Ti

I'm upgrading the moment the 4K series from AMD comes out. Probably won't need to upgrade after that for probably 5 years frankly. Considering the gaming speed of the 3K chips right now being on par more or less with the 8700K. Boost it a bit more and make it right up against or better than the 9900K or 10K. Ontop of the already industry wide change for other compute tasks. I can't even imagine a reason to go for anything else for awhile.

Upgrade plans:
Highest Tier 4K CPU from AMD.
64GB @ 4000MHz
3090 (may hold off in hopes for Ti variant)
New mobo with Gen 4 to the max
Minimum of 2 2TB NVMEs
4 new 2TB SSDs.

My wallet gonna hurt.
