Trying to choose a graphics card for my first build

The aio will get you lower temps...so then just lower the rpm fan curve. So yes...probably

I'm putting together my first gaming desktop, so I don't want to deal with any custom watercooling in case I screw up. I'm using an i9900k with a Z390 AORUS Master motherboard so I figured a RTX 2080 ti would fit the bill nicely. I was going to get either the MSI 2080 Ti SEA HAWK EK X or the EVGA RTX 2080 Ti FTW3 ULTRA HYDRO COPPER. But I couldn't tell if these were simply plug and play or if I would have to connect them to a pre-established custom cooling loop, which again, I'm too lazy for lol.

I'd like to know if they are self contained or if it would be easier to go with a different option. I'm okay with air cooling, but I thought water cooling would be... cooler. (kill me now) Also quieter is nice. My budget is about $1500 USD.

Thanks in advance for any help!

Both of them require you to integrate them into a custom water loop. 

 

Try this...

EVGA GeForce RTX 2080 Ti XC HYBRID GAMING

 


CPU: Intel Core i7-3770 with BeQuiet Pure Rock Slim // RAM: Kingston HyperX Blu 16GB DDR3 1600mhz CL9 // GPU: Gigabyte Gaming RX 580 4GB// Motherboard: Gigabyte Ga-B75m-D3H Rev 1.1 // PSU: Seasonic G550 Gold 80+ // Storage: 2 X 1TB Western Digital Blue | 128 GB Geil Zenith A3 SSD | Asus DVD/CD optical drive // Monitor: Samsung S22D300 21.5" 1080p 60Hz 5ms, Dell 27" 75Hz 3ms Freesync // Peripherals: Logitech MK270 | Linksys AC1200 USB wifi | Kingston HyperX Cloud Core headset

 How are you getting that hardware for $1500?

I'd save a bunch on the GPU and just get a used 1080ti for like $500

You might want to look into this if you do not want the hassle of DIY WC.   This is what I am using and it is easy to set up.  https://www.aquatuning.us/water-cooling/kits-systems-and-aios/internal-kits/alphacool/eiswolf/24112/alphacool-eiswolf-240-gpx-pro-nvidia-geforce-rtx-2080/2080ti-black-m02
