Hello, I posted here about 5 years ago and received excellent build advice. My current rig is not doing so well, thinking it's time to upgrade so here's my rough draft for a new build: https://pcpartpicker.com/user/Sirrrus/saved/#view=N2D7WZ
Rough Draft Build Parts:
Mobo- EVGA X299 Dark (LGA 2066)
CPU Cooler- Corsair H100 v2
GPU- 1x Nvidia RTX 2080 Ti (not really looking to SLI this time around, Assassin's Creed is my favorite series and they never support it anyway)
RAM- 32GB GSkill Ripjaws V (posted is 2x 16GB but I can alter that for compatibility)
Hard Drive: Samsung EVO 1TB SSD (keeping my existing hard drive)
PSU: SeaSonic PRIME Platinum 1200W 80+ Platinum Budget: $3000-$4000 USD
, but I'd like to stay closer to the $3k mark. My posted list comes in at $1800 and I figure $1200 for a single RTX 2080 Ti card. No interest this round in SLI.
Main uses of intended build: Gaming, I'm entranced by awesome graphics and great stories so...AC:Odyssey, AC: Origins, Witcher 3, Dragon Age: Inquisition, etc. and I'm impatient, strongly desire low load times.
Parts required: All except monitor and hard drive
Previous build information (list details of parts):
Mobo- Asus Rampage IV Extreme Black Edition
CPU Cooler- Corsair H100i
GPU- 2x EVGA GTX 780 Classified SLI
RAM- 16GB Gskill Ripjaws Z DDR3 @ 2166
Hard Drive: Samsung EVO 1TB SSD
PSU: Seasonic 1250-X Gold (1250W)
Monitor resolution: Currently have 1080p, looking for feedback here before deciding to go 4K or for better frame rate with a slightly lower resolution. Can I even support 4K with a single RTX 2080 Ti card? Most articles I've read say yes, but I'm skeptical...
Storage requirements: Enough to have all my games, I plan on keeping my current hard drive, might upgrade that later if the new rig is bottlenecked.
Will you be overclocking: Yes but not much. My knowledge and skill is maybe slightly above average.
Any motherboard requirements (no. of USB, Xfire/SLI, fan headers): No, just looking for speed and reliability.
Extra information about desired system: I use my PC for Internet and games, that's it. I want great graphics and low load times. Open to any constructive criticism and advice as I'm only adept at builds and OC.
Thank you in advance for your help!
