Evening guys 

 

Looking at doing my First full build, around the new year and was wondering what people thought of this setup?

This rig was spec'd before the release of the RTX2080 and was wondering if its worth the upgrade compared to the 1080Ti (which are becoming harder to find for reasonable price) and a couple of components aren't available in the UK anymore (or that pc partpicker is showing) so any recommendations on those replacements would be great. RGB isn't a requirement but would be nice to have, because who doesn't like rainbows. Budget is around £2,000 GBP

Would be better to go with a 2x16GB memory kit. This would leave two slots free should an upgrade be necessary.

80+ ratings certify electrical efficiency. Not quality.

Well it looks like a fine build, only thing I would change is change the 32GB of memory to 16, you won't be using the majority of it for gaming

So took the recommendations and came up with this.

 

Changed the motherboard as the original one I listed was unavailable
