Hello! I am planning on building my first PC soon and I need some tips/advice. I already own an EVGA 1080ti ftw3 and 27" 1440p 144hz LG GL850b that I will use for this build. I am soliciting advice for the motherboard, RAM, and case specifically but I am welcome to any advice anyone is willing to give. I have no requirements for the RAM or motherboard other than that the motherboard has reinforced pcie slots. The case I would like to be a mid tower with all metal sides, no glass, because I need to be able to transport the PC with having to baby the glass sides.

 

Thank you for any and all advice!

I would sell the GPU, since you could get a 3080 in s 2500$ build. also, I would wait for next gen amd processors.

I am still TechWizardThatNeedsHelp, just less of a mouthfull.

I will most likely get a 3080 when they are in stock, but until then the 1080ti is enough for what I need.

Do the next gen amd's look promising? I don't keep up with the market.

 

Thanks!

Not really, not for long. Adds stability to games - you'll never be unstable again.

If we're talking about video rendering, then yes. Saving 6 minutes is not worth it.
