That depends on what you are planning to do with the system (if gaming, what games and at what resolution/FPS, if workstation, what kind of applications) and what's your budget.

I edited topic, forgot to put the 3070 part in. I plan on only gaming with the system and am contemplating what GPU i should get. My budget is around 1400 with a 3070 build, and 1700 with a 3080 build. Sorry, english isnt my main language, so if anything is not clear, i am sorry.
