PS5 / Xbox Series X games also on PC / Maya, Substance, ZBrush / Adobe Creative Suite build. Ryzen 5900x. 3080. 27" 1440p 144Hz.

Hello again. Posted here a few years back with a similar question. So here's an updated one:


Budget (including currency): £1500-2000 GBP

Country: UK

Games, programs or workloads that it will be used for: 

Maya, Substance, ZBrush, Houdini, Redshift etc. Adobe Creative Suite: mostly Photoshop, Lightroom, some Premiere.

PS5 / Xbox Series X: If games that come out on these platforms are also released on PC, I would like to be able to play them at the same or better quality. For example: Horizon or Final Fantasy. Oh, and probably Overwatch 2 -_-

Other details:

> Upgrading from 2015 MacBook Pro and PS4.

> I don't have any clue which PSU to choose.

> Not really interested in 4K gaming if I use this with a 27" monitor at 1440p, 144Hz. Maybe at some point it could be connected to a large 4K 120Hz TV, but I don't have one right now anyway.

> Is it worth waiting for the "Ti" (or whatever they are called) upgraded versions of the 3070 or 3080? When might they be released? I realise the 3080 might be overkill for 1440p gaming, but the extra power might help with some of the programmes I listed above, right?

> Any opinions on which M2 card to put in the second motherboard slot? Are these B550 boards a good choice now, too? I am a bit confused about them vs other options.

> Was also looking at the Phanteks P600S, if it could keep the internals as cool or better than the Meshify 2. Haven't seen any comparisons between the two.

> Ideally I'd like to stick a Blu-ray drive in there, but can't see a case which has that option and as good air flow as either of these (and isn't ugly). Could connect an external disc drive too.

If Horizon Forbidden West ever comes to PC then I think your requirements might be well above your price bracket if you want it to run BETTER than PS5.


Its honestly unclear how optimised that game is going to be yet, since they said its coming to PS4 too it should scale, but PS5 beating may be no easy task.


That said, by the time it comes to PC (if it ever does), your PC will probably due for another upgrade anyway.
