    1st Gaming Build

    It is only $350 from that particular vendor. It is $261 after rebate from Newegg. If he is happy with a GTX 1060 (Or RX 580) then there are cheaper versions for under $200.

    Rig maybe?

    The Antec one in my builds is pretty good, or have a look at the psu tier list and go with something from Tier 1 or Tier 2.

    2080ti and z390 mobos

    You don't need 32GB Ram if you are just gaming. A 2 x 8GB kit is enough. I would go with a Gigabyte board on Z390. Something like the Aorus Pro/Pro wifi. Those gpu's are probably more or less on par with each other. I would say go with the cheapest out of the three. Have a look through the psu tier list in the psu section. That will give you an idea of what psu to go with. Any T1 or T2 will be good. Case is personal preference. Do you want flashy RGB or something understated etc ?
  4. When your motherboard costs more than your gpu....... I think you should rethink this build. Spending $900 on a mainstream board is just nuts. A $3500 build should have an RTX 2080 ti or you are doing it wrong. The Gigabyte Z390 Aorus Master is more than enough and saves you $650 in the process. That could be spent towards a 2080 ti and a custom loop etc. Also those Noctua Industrial fans are loud if I remember correctly. If you want non RGB fans then check out BeQuiet Silent Wings 3.

    Nope. That power supply will more than likely die and take all your shiny hardware with it. Is your budget now $2400 ? Also what monitor are you going to be using ?

    Spend a bit more and do something like this. Bigger SSD as 120GB will fill up fast. Better board, psu and a 1TB HDD.

    Not a good choice of cooler. The Gigabyte board in my build is better. Do you really need 32GB Ram ? I doubt it. No SSD ? Cheap psu for a $2K build.

    Ryzen option with a 2700 and high end board. Gives you a better upgrade path as AM4 is supported until 2020.

    Assuming your budget is around $1500. Maybe also consider Ryzen as a cheaper option. I would try and source a cheaper copy of W10 as mentioned above.

    Building a pc for my friend

    Get a better motherboard if going with the 9900K. Something like a Gigabyte Aorus Z390 board. For Ram you are fine with 2 x 8GB. Never heard of that brand of gpu. If that is a 1080p 144Hz monitor then you don't need an RTX 2080 anyway. You really want a 1440p 144Hz+ to make good use of an RTX 2080. You will need a damn good cooler for the 9900K. Something like a BeQuiet Dark Rock Pro 4 or 280mm/360mm AIO etc. I know case choice is personal, but that one looks cheap and nasty. Not sure how good airflow is. Do not cheap out on the psu. I can't find any reviews for redragon power supplies so I would avoid it. Get something like a Seasonic Focus, Antec Earthwatts Gold, Corsair RMx/TXM or EVGA G2 etc. Last thing you want is a cheap psu taking out his new build.

    Can you guys check over my build?

    They will both perform pretty much the same as you have the same core components in both builds (9700K and 2080 ti). If you are spending this sort of money you might as well get the 9900K. A cheaper 2080 ti such as the Gigabyte Gaming OC would easily offset the cost. You get a 4 year warranty on that card when you register it and UK warranty support. There is also a Gigabyte rep over on Overclockers UK forum if you are a member there. I would also go with a 360mm cooler if going with the 9900K. The Alphacool Eisbaer LT360 or BeQuiet Silent Loop 360 etc. The Riotoro psu is basically a Seasonic Focus as it is based on that platform, and the oem is obviously Seasonic PCPartPicker part list / Price breakdown by merchant CPU: Intel - Core i9-9900K 3.6 GHz 8-Core Processor (£476.99 @ Aria PC) CPU Cooler: be quiet! - Silent Loop 360 65.51 CFM Liquid CPU Cooler (£134.68 @ Amazon UK) Motherboard: Gigabyte - Z390 AORUS PRO WIFI ATX LGA1151 Motherboard (£162.48 @ Amazon UK) Memory: Corsair - Vengeance LPX 16 GB (2 x 8 GB) DDR4-3200 Memory (£119.58 @ Aria PC) Storage: Samsung - 860 Evo 500 GB 2.5" Solid State Drive (£80.99 @ Aria PC) Video Card: Gigabyte - GeForce RTX 2080 Ti 11 GB GAMING OC Video Card (£1110.79 @ Overclockers.co.uk) Case: Cooler Master - MasterCase H500 ATX Mid Tower Case (£92.53 @ CCL Computers) Power Supply: RIOTORO - ENIGMA G2 750 W 80+ Gold Certified Fully-Modular ATX Power Supply (£83.95 @ More Computers) Total: £2261.99 Prices include shipping, taxes, and discounts when available Generated by PCPartPicker 2019-02-13 01:16 GMT+0000

    They are nowhere near the same price. You are looking at $145 or so difference between the 1060 and 2060 for the cheapest versions.

    Not so bleeding edge gaming PC

    Cheaper RTX 2080 means you can get a much better motherboard. The Gigabyte card has a 4 year warranty when you register it online. If you prefer Asus boards then I would go with the X470-F Strix or push the extra for the Crosshair VII depending on your budget.

    You might as well go with an 8 core R7 2700 as you can fit it in your budget seeing as you don't need storage.

    Looking for PC Recommendations

    I didn't say he has to spend the full $1000. That is up to the op. What onboard Vega are you referring to ? The 2700X doesn't have an igpu. If he is using a 144Hz monitor then he needs a decent gpu, even something like an RX 580 would do ok. As for the NVMe SSD it really makes little difference to load/boot times. A SATA is just as good for less money. As for the cooler he would be fine with a Cryorig H7 if he wants an aftermarket one. The stock is fine though if he isn't overclocking, and 60+c is perfectly acceptable. As long as it isn't getting in the high 80s-90s then it isn't a problem.
