I'm building my first pc.

Budget (including currency): 2000

Country: US

Games, programs or workloads that it will be used for: the most intensive is probably cyberpunk 2077 

Other details (existing parts lists, whether any peripherals are needed, what you're upgrading from, when you're going to buy, what resolution and refresh rate you want to play at, etc):I'm dead set on a 4000x for a case but not much else, but with a budget of like 2000-2500 how much should I spend on the graphics card.

with 2500 usd you can afford a 4080 12gb (or 4080 16gb, if you allocate your budget properly). The 4080 12gb and 16gb are very different cards, neither of them are bad you just have to know the differences.

Basic parts list I threw together quickly. This is a ryzen 7000 build so its brand new, the 7600x is great for gaming assuming thats what you will be using it for.

Mobo is expensive but the cheaper am5 boards arent out yet, just picked one that isnt as ridiculous as the others.

 

With this you can add a 4080 16gb and still be under 2500 usd.

Used 3090 go ~800$ on ebay so 200$+ discount over buying new

the 4080 12gb costs 900 usd, only 100$ more than that and its supposed to be faster than the 3090 ti, only issue is its over a month away.

Well op if you are fine with waiting over a month or so then get a 4080 although do keep in mind that at launch availability is gonna be like 0 so youd prob have to wait a few more weeks ontop of that, a used 6600 would prob work fine as a placeholder

spending 200+ dollars on a 6600 that will be used for just a couple months is a huge waste. Not many people are spending over 1000 dollars on a gpu so I dont think it should be a couple weeks of waiting after launch.

You didnt really consider reselling the gpu did you?

 

6600 would prob still be worth like 150$ atleast early next gen launch cause remember used gpus from the next generation wont be popping up till a few months after theyve launched

Yeah, but it still seems like unnecessary effort.

 

Thats just how I feel though, im not that impatient. I would be fine waiting a month for this.

I know that air cooling is cheaper but how much would it be if I used ddr4 with a liquid cooler(I mean mainly for looks).That sound reasonable atleast?
