Some thoughts about a new gaming/ photoshop & illustrator pc build

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hi all.

I'm building a gaming / photoshop / illustrator pc,

and will like to hear your thoughts and segregation on a list of components:

CPU: Intel Core i7 9700K 

CPU Cooling: Noctua NH-D15

Motherboard: Gigabyte Z390 UD VS Gigabyte Z390 M

RAM: HyperX FURY Black 2x16GB DDR4 3466MHz CL16 Kit

Graphics card: Gigabyte RTX 2080 SUPER GAMING OC 8GB GDDR6 Or wait for nvidia 3000 series?

Storage: Corsair Force MP510 PCIe NVMe M.2 2280 960GB X2
Power supply: 
Corsair 750W 80+ Gold RM750x

Case: Corsair iCUE 465X RGB Tempered Glass Mid Tower

I know it is a little over kill for 1080p gaming but i plan to upgrade my monitor to 1440p/4k in the future.

And i generally not planing to upgrade (the pc) beyond that for the next 6-8 years.

Thanks for the feedback!

Depends if you can wait or not, if you can I would wait for the Nvidia 3000 series and 10th gen i7 or 4000 series Ryzen.

Do I really need hyperthreding for my use case?, and does it justify 250 dollars more?

Bad choice, i7 9700 doesn't have hyperthreading. Go for 9900k or Ryzen 3700x at least.

I'd definitely wait. We're only a few months away from the new releases.
