    Difference between 100hz and 144hz

    Makes sense to me. I play also play overwatch so this was really good to know. Thanks!

    Difference between 100hz and 144hz

    That is totally fair. I updated the original post but the cost difference between 100hz or higher is anywhere from $100-$300 dollars. Could you elaborate more about that "what you can see" part?
  3. Has anyone went from a 100hz monitor to a 144hz monitor before? I'm currently on a 75hz monitor and looking to upgrade. Is the difference worth the price? EDIT: The monitors I'm looking at are ultra wide monitors and the difference between 100hz and 144hz is about $100-$200 dollars

    RTX 2070 or GTX 1080

    For used, as long as the original packaging is there I should be able to claim warranty in most cases right?

    RTX 2070 or GTX 1080

    Ahhh okay. I didn’t realize the 8700k was enough for even the RTX 2080 Ti. Sucks that the gpu GPU investment is going to be a few hundred dollars more but it’s better than downgrading the cpu imo.

    RTX 2070 or GTX 1080

    I feel like a 1070 ti doesn’t really match the performance I want for the total price of the build ($1700 ish range). That’s a fair point. Do you think it’s a little unbalanced with an 8700k and a 2070/1080? The graphic card is probably what I’m purchasing last, so I don’t mind saving up to go the whole nine yards.

    RTX 2070 or GTX 1080

    So I’m planning out my new build and found that these two different cards are pretty close to each other in terms of price. I haven’t seen a whole bunch of data but from what I’ve gathered the RTX 2070 is just slightly ahead in terms of gaming benchmarks (but correct me if I’m wrong). I’m planning on using an 8700k while gaming at 1440p. I do some video editing in the side, but my computer usage is mostly gaming. Which do you all think will be a better option?

    White MoBo for 8700k?

    Could you elaborate on that more? I don’t quite understand. EDIT: I’m not very knowledgeable on pc hardware, so I’m a little lost in what that means.

    White MoBo for 8700k?

    Ugh I wish the nzxt board was actually worth the price tag. Guess I’ll stick with that asus board.
  10. Just like the title says, I’m looking for a white motherboard that’s comparable with the i7 8700k. Bonus points if intel optane is comparable with it.

    Okay! I think a 2TB HDD with the 500GB SSD should be plenty. I'm most likely going to be waiting for holiday sales to get the PC. In terms of a Z390 board do you have any advice on picking a board?

My only questions would be if the cooler would be sufficient for the 8700K and if there's any other glaring issues?

    Actually I didn't even realize that it was showing the 3GB version on pc partpicker. I've edited it now to show the 6GB card I was looking to get. I actually like the changes you've suggested! I might not stick with the case you've suggested but making room in the budget for the 1080 sounds like a great idea! I haven't built the PC yet, but I'll look to get another HDD. If i'm not mistaken I have that same SSD on the build?

    Do I need to get another identical drive to use for raid 1?

    Do you think this will cause any issues?
