I'm thinking about building my first gaming pc. I have got some advice from a friend and this i what I have come up with, any pointers would be apriciated.
What I have so far is:
Case - Corsair SPEC-DELTA Carbide Series

CPU - Intel i9-9900k

Motherboard - Gigabyte Intel Z390 AORUS PRO

GPU - Geforce RTX 2080 ti

Ram - Corsair Vengeance RGB3200mhz16gb

Storage m.2- Corsair force MP510 240GB

Storage m.2 - Corsair force MP600 1TB

Power supply - Corsair TX850M

CPU cooler - CORSAIR Hydro H100i

Would this make a good build or what parts should I change.
Thanks in advance Dan.

Well if your gonna spend that money on a 2080ti then you might aswell get the 3090 as they're roughly the same price and its more powerful

I did think that tbh, but it all depends on availability at the time still undecided between the 2 yet. Anything other input?
Cheers

I dont know much but If It was me I'd wait and get a 3090 as soon as one is available, why pay the same for somthing that isn't as good.
And I'd wait for 21, he will most likely tell you and me how wrong we are haha

You could probably find these parts on the used market, prices for the 2080ti will fall once supply for the next gen is more stable.

Requesting a list of parts

If you don't answer these questions, we will post them or refer you back to this post.

  • What is your budget and currency?
  • What will you use the PC for?
  • Do you need a monitor? If not, what monitor(s) will you be using?
  • Do you need a keyboard, mouse, or other peripherals?
  • Do you need an operating system?
  • Will you overclock?
  • Anything else we should know?





Definitely do not buy an RTX 2080Ti. If you're happy with 2080Ti performance, then wait about a week for the RTX 3070 to launch and get one of those for $500-550. I'd also pay attention to AMD's Navi 2 announcement in case they release anything worth buying.
Alternatively, RTX 3080 stock should start getting better.

Also, definitely do not buy an i9-9900k. If you're going to buy Intel, then you might as well buy the latest generation('10th' gen). However, Ryzen is almost definitely a better choice.

Thanks for the input, I suppose if the 3070 is cheaper than the 2080ti I could go for a 10th gen CPU but I would also need a different motherboard am I right? Or would the one I have chose support 10th gen and 30 series GPU?

I think you need a motherboard specific for 10th gen CPUs... And also i agree with the 3070, cheaper and better. It will be hard to get one when they release though, gotta be on the ball to get one, or risk paying over the price for one, or not get one for a long long time.

You don't need to save money on anything to go with a 10th gen CPU instead of 9th gen. An i7-10700K should cost the same as an i9-9900K anyway.

lDannyGl wrotebut I would also need a different motherboard am I right? Or would the one I have chose support 10th gen and 30 series GPU?

The GPU doesn't matter. Z390 motherboard would not support 10th gen Intel CPU though. You would need a Z490 motherboard with something like an i7-10700K.
Although, really, IMO, you should be buying an R7 5800X or R9 5900X and an X570 motherboard.

We can't really recommend which parts you should buy/change without any of the info I asked for above though. So if you want some actual help with a parts list, answer all of those questions.

Ill do some research tonight for a new motherboard and get some prices done, my budget its around £2500 and as of now my build so far is £2300 I'd have to see the difference in price for a 10th gen cpu, 30 series gpu and a compatible motherbored. Dose all the rest look good as in ram storages cooling?
Cheers guys
