    My first build plan

    Finally placed all orders. Some components are either out of stock or take ridiculously long to restock, so I had to replace and/or purchase from other retailers.

    Thank you for all your support! I think I'll go with @lee32uk's configuration. But there is still a tiny problem: I don't really care about RGB lighting, and I was wondering whether it's better to get a non-RGB version of the motherboard (if such version exists).

    Not sure if it's a mistake, but my local retailers have Asus ROG STRIX X470-F Gaming ATX AM4 Motherboard priced at €218 and Gigabyte - X570 GAMING X ATX AM4 Motherboard at €199. Seems like a no-brainer here.

    Type Item Price CPU AMD - Ryzen 9 3900X 3.8 GHz 12-Core Processor €499.00 @ POWER CPU Cooler ARCTIC - Freezer 34 eSports DUO CPU Cooler €38.00 @ Tietokonekauppa Motherboard Gigabyte - X570 GAMING X ATX AM4 Motherboard €199.90 @ Komponenttikauppa Memory Crucial - Ballistix Sport LT 32 GB (2 x 16 GB) DDR4-3200 Memory €145.71 @ Amazon Deutschland Storage ADATA - XPG SX8200 Pro 512 GB M.2-2280 Solid State Drive €78.60 @ Mikroaitta Video Card Gigabyte - GeForce RTX 2080 Ti 11 GB GAMING OC Video Card €1249.00 @ Gigantti Case Fractal Design - Meshify C ATX Mid Tower Case €89.61 @ CompuSat Power Supply Corsair - 650 W 80+ Gold Certified Fully Modular ATX Power Supply €118.84 @ Amazon Deutschland Total (w/o shipping) €2418.66 It turns out some retailers don't ship to Finland, so I need to buy from both local and international retailers. If I replace 3700 with 3900, this is the total price without shipping. If I stick with 3700, I'll just remove €150 from CPU.

    Hmm I never really considered AMD. But their reviews are quite positive. It looks promising. Thanks for the suggestion. I have a 1440p display. I didn't know about the airflow issue. Thanks for pointing that out!

    Glad to hear from a C:S player! Thanks for the suggestion. Currently the RAM capacity is 16GB. IIRC CPU was quite busy during game. Task manager indicated usage close to 100%. What's your population? I thought about going for 2080 super too. Its VRAM capacity is only 8GB. Will it be a problem?

    Thanks. Ryzen 3900 was under consideration but the game doesn't seem to be able to utilize all the threads (or so I've heard). My main concern was motherboard & cooler. I don't know if they work well with other components, or if I can get better deal by choosing cheaper alternatives.

    Yes just gaming.

    My first build plan

    Hi everyone. I'm planning my first build. My current PC (Core i7-4790K + GeForce GTX 970) is 4 years old and it struggles a little bit when the population in game (Cities: Skylines) grows past a certain point. Also The acceleration of 2x and 4x is essentially the same as 1x. I'm in need of a more powerful setup. The budget is €2500. Most likely I'll buy from European Amazon sites, since the offers from my local Finnish retailers are usually overpriced. I'll keep using my old monitor (1440p) and peripherals.

Storage capacity isn't going to be an issue.) Thanks for comments and suggestions.
