    Well do you have windows installed and your boot drives properly configured?

    as for the kraken, I wouldn't worry about that for now, but check that The headers on the cpu block are all properly plugged in.

    looks good but I would change out your psu for something like a 450w or 500w psu. 600w is a bit overkill for this build.

    looks good but wait for 3000 series cards to come out apparently a 3070 will double I believe the performance of a 2070 for less money. They should be releasing soon so now is not a good time to build a pc.

I do not think that you can use the key from the laptop as it will most likely be a oem key and be locked to the laptop. You can find key for a fairly low price like $20 online from websites like kingwin and there are some other websites but just can't think of them right now. You can even not activate windows and still use it but with a little watermark at the bottom of your screen. Here is a article on this.

I'd only get the 2070 if he needs the nvidia exclusive features such as the nvenc encoder or DLSS2.0
    PSU is better with more headroom
    I havent been able to squeeze in a harddrive, but 500GB should last a fair while, and adding a harddrive later is very  simple.
     
    If he wants something that will (hopefully) trounce the PS5, I would suggest aiming for the 3070 when its released. It'll probably be £500, but should offer 2080Ti levels of performance- making it an extremely good deal. However, thats still a lot of money on a GPU so if not the 5700XT is a decent performer.

    So since this is a new build windows has not set the drive up. What you will need to do it go into create and format hard disk partitions, then you will see a drive that says unallocated space click on it and create a new simple volume and go through the setup here is a vid.

    tank234 reacted to Fasauceome in Question   
    most people use "bottleneck" to describe when a component of your PC is holding you back, whether it's in some game or application. 
     
    However it's so dreadfully overused, and misunderstood. It's best not to use the word at all really, because computers are very complicated and often can't have blanket statements about their performance applied. When someone asks if they are going to have a bottleneck, you need to find out what games they are going to play and how they will play them, but many people will answer the question of a bottleneck when all the OP has done is list hardware.

    9900K = 10700K
    It's the same chip,same architecture...

    Remove the word Bottleneck from your Computer Vocabulary. Horrible word  and no why would a cpu like that be limited?

    tank234 reacted to Fasauceome in Question   
    a 2080 ti for 1080p is pretty unnecessary, but I guess if your friend is upgrading to a 3090 and you're getting that 2080 ti for free/cheap then I guess why not.

    tank234 reacted to Lord Vile in Should I go to the used market?(Ebay)   
    I would wait at least until the launch when prices may drop. Also the 3060 is likely a thing that will launch and will likely be around a 2080 in performance

    tank234 got a reaction from BTGbullseye in Is this a good combo   
    Yes that is a good combination they work really well together. I would wait if you are not in a rush to upgrade because the next gen is releasing and you might get better prices if you wait.

    tank234 reacted to BTGbullseye in Crazy 2080ti prices?! Is anyone paying for one of these right now?   
    It was before the $1200 stimulus check, and ended shortly after they started sending those out. I think they just ran out of stock for them.

    tank234 reacted to Quinnell in Thoughts on this parts list?   
    Best part is... if the new releases are out of your budget range you can try and get some 20xx cards on a discount.  Just make sure you don't wait too long because retail stock will run out and you'll be stuck with eBay for last-gen stuff.
