    best rtx 2080 ti

    For regular cards, and between the Gaming X Trio and AMP Extreme, the MSI card is better. For more exotic cards, they can have better performance but they're more for extreme overclockers etc. Like EVGA's 2080 Ti Kingpin, they're binned chips and they have higher potential for overclocks etc. It's very expensive though. $1600 MSRP i think. Maybe you could look at hybrid cooled 2080 Ti's, like Gigabyte's XTREME WATERFORCE.

    H500i question plus Psu

    IMO he looks more like Bucky Barnes from the Marvel movies than Jesus. I've tried air cooling on a h500, had a Palit 1070Ti Jetstream which has pretty beefy cooling, and a ryzen 5 2600 with stock cooler. Temps were completely fine(I had all fan slots populated with corsair LL120s)
  3. 850 is still slightly overkill, but it's fine. I'd say Corsair RM850x, but it seems like they're not available on any UK e-retailer's website according to pcpartpicker. Use the PSU tier list and get a power supply from there, it's a good list to refer to. Stick to tier 1 for this build. Something like this maybe?

  4. Really? I remember watching a video somewhere and it was something like 5 seconds. Either way not worth sacrificing half the capacity of your SSD just for a few seconds faster boot time.
  5. -PSU is overkill, I'd strongly recommend Corsair RM650x(visit the PSU sub-forum of this forum, there is a pinned thread called PSU tier list. you can refer to that for good power supplies, I stick to tier 1 for normal builds and tier2-3 for budget builds I'm using an RM650x right now and under load, the thing is basically silent) -Don't get any ROG products. They may be good but they are always overpriced. Includes motherboard and GPU. -An NVME SSD has no real performance increase in normal tasks over a SATA SSD. For booting windows, it's like 5 seconds faster or something. For most games they're within 1-2 seconds of each other. Only real difference is when you do a lot of 4K video editing and have to move large files around regularly. I'd get a SATA SSD and increase the capacity since they're cheaper per GB -Most use cases don't need 32GB of RAM, 16GB is enough for everyday use, light editing(depends on the program you use) and gaming. -With the money saved by not buying ROG products and not getting such an overkill PSU, you could get an RTX 2080 instead of a 2060 PCPartPicker part list / Price breakdown by merchant Type Item Price CPU Intel - Core i7-9700K 3.6 GHz 8-Core Processor £384.40 @ Alza CPU Cooler be quiet! - Dark Rock Pro 4 50.5 CFM CPU Cooler £69.92 @ Amazon UK Motherboard MSI - MPG Z390 GAMING EDGE AC ATX LGA1151 Motherboard £154.97 @ Ebuyer Memory Corsair - Vengeance LPX 16 GB (2 x 8 GB) DDR4-2666 Memory £100.97 @ Amazon UK Storage Samsung - 860 Evo 1 TB 2.5" Solid State Drive £139.99 @ Aria PC Storage Western Digital - Caviar Blue 1 TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive £36.97 @ Aria PC Video Card Gigabyte - GeForce RTX 2080 8 GB WINDFORCE Video Card £669.99 @ CCL Computers Case be quiet! - Dark Base 700 ATX Mid Tower Case £154.88 @ More Computers Power Supply Corsair - RMx (2018) 650 W 80+ Gold Certified Fully-Modular ATX Power Supply £92.85 @ Ebuyer Case Fan be quiet! - SilentWings 3 PWM 50.5 CFM 120mm Fan £18.98 @ Amazon UK Case Fan be quiet! - SilentWings 3 PWM 50.5 CFM 120mm Fan £18.98 @ Amazon UK Case Fan be quiet! - SilentWings 3 PWM 50.5 CFM 120mm Fan £18.98 @ Amazon UK Case Fan be quiet! - SilentWings 3 PWM 50.5 CFM 120mm Fan £18.98 @ Amazon UK Monitor Asus - ROG SWIFT PG278QR 27.0" 2560x1440 165 Hz Monitor £580.98 @ Scan.co.uk Prices include shipping, taxes, rebates, and discounts Total £2461.84 Generated by PCPartPicker 2019-01-18 13:24 GMT+0000
  6. 1440p vs 4k will show a huge difference usually only when your monitor is large, like a 32" monitor or something. Right now with the quality of hardware and such it's much more viable to get 1440p 144hz.

    H500i question plus Psu

    The smart hub that comes with the case? The NZXT fan controllers only work with NZXT fans. Same with corsair, and Cooler Master.
  8. Honestly, 1440p 144Hz is a much more pleasant experience than 4K 60Hz, unless you wanna spend like $1000+ on a 4K 144Hz panel. Much easier to run 1440p 144Hz, and a radeon vii/2080 should push 100+ fps at 1440p ultra without any issue.
  9. only if you regularly move large files around(like 4k videos), nvme ssds won't give you any significant performance boost over a sata ssd.
  10. If you want to do 4K Ultra with a card that barely keeps up with the 2080 at all, then you'd probably see something like 30-40 FPS. If you want a good 4k ultra gaming experience, only card right now that isn't a titan is the 2080 Ti.
  11. You might encounter with RAM OC instability even with XMP, it's not always stable. Other than the motherboard's power delivery issue, there aren't any glaring bottlenecks here. Usually people pair the 9900k with an extremely high end GPU like a 2080 Ti, 2080 or 1080 Ti though, not very common to see it with a 1070. It shouldn't cause problems but you likely could have saved money by getting 16GB of 3000-3200MHz ram and a non ASUS-ROG motherboard(they're all extremely overpriced). There are other m-ATX Z390 motherboards that don't cost $300 and are pretty good. The extra money likely could get you an RTX 2080 if you sold the 1070 as well.
  12. and they have power delivery issues
  13. Don't most high end AIOs have pumps where you can control the speed?
  14. considering his 2600 only goes up to 60C under load, if he has a decent 360mm AIO he could probably get away with really low rpm on the fans, they'd be really quiet. But then again a dark rock pro 4 is probably a better investment

    What are your tech pet peeves for 2019?

    the 2060 is more like a 1070ti or 1080 than a 1070 tbh. AMD does offer the Vega 64 which is around 1070-1080 level performance. the Vega 56 matches the 1070 in some games but it falls short in others.
