  1. 64 GB of ram really is overkill for right now. I'd say you might need that ram in 7-10 years time, but by then I'm not sure your GPU and CPU would be able to match it. Memory is the easiest thing to upgrade, I'd say save the $270, and if you really need it in 5 years just drop it in. You also mentioned you liked the AIO because "It doesn't look super flashy," so you might be able to save by not getting RGB memory. The 1080ti is also a very old part, it's pretty hard to find them any more. I can't find any on newegg for less than $1,200, which is about the same price as a 2080ti, which performs much better and has ray tracing, which you might want in the future. If that breaks your budget, a 2080 will also perform around the same as a 1080ti and costs only about $800, in actual stock. Other than that it looks like a solid build. You had mentioned a monitor. I'm not an expert, but a good 144hz 1440p monitor with freesync or gsync should do you nicely. Just make sure you get a display port cable to run it off of, HDMI can't handle that much data. Hope I could be of help.
  2. It really depends on what work you're doing, but I have a few remarks. First, if you're at all comfortable with overclocking (it's super easy and safe as long as you don't go to high on the main voltage) go with a 2600. The only real difference is that the x has a higher clock out of the factory, is more expensive, and doesn't come with a cooler (the stock cooler is good enough for 3.8-4.0). You should also probably get a 2060 instead of a 1070 ti, similar performance with added AI and RT (depending on your work that might be useful) with a much lower price. Depending on your workload you might want to upgrade to a Ryzen 7, but I'd have to know what it was. R5 is good for gaming with a 1070ti/2060. You might also need more ram than just 16 GB, but again that depends on your work.
  3. If you're using a 2600 and not overclocking it you really don't need an aftermarket cooler, especially not a $50 one. Also a 2060 is comparable to a 1070 in price and a fair bit faster. Other than that it's a fairly solid list.
  4. Go for it, glad I could be of help. One last thing, if you have the $20-30 to spare and you use your PC for anything besides gaming, get an SSD. The difference it makes from just putting your OS, chrome, and startup apps on it is amazing.
  5. The computer you're listing should be able to scrape by on smaller games, but won't be able to get close to PS4 levels of performance. If all you care about is low-intensity PC exclusives, then that should work. This could change if you decided to add in a dedicated GPU later, as a 2400g is a competent CPU. You also need to factor in the cost of Windows, Microsoft will realize that you've moved to a new computer and will lock it down. You can get a sketchy copy for $20, but that's, as mentioned, sketchy. Overall if this is you're budget I'd recommend just buying used and dropping a 1050ti in for the same price. Either way, good luck and welcome to the PCMR
