Thanks for the reply!

 

I did look at the 7900 XTX, but yes, I would like to have ray tracing.

you can still use ray tracing on a 7900 XTX. But it'll be worse than nvidia 

So I'd get this

Hello, all!

 

I've put together the following build for the purposes listed above. Please let me know if you have any suggestions for improvement, savings on costs, thermals, etc. Looking at the compatibility warning, I made sure the Noctua DH-15 front fan moved up (168mm - https://noctua.at/pub/media/catalog/product/n/o/noctua_nh_d15_clearance_updated-border_1_1.png) would work with the Corsair case and the 32mm RAM, but please let me know if I made a mistake.

 

Thank you!

You want a ATX 3.0 psu for these RTX 40XX series cards and low profile RAM when using a dual tower cpu cooler so that the RAM doesn't impede said cpu cooler. Here's a case that's easier to work with. Replace the 140mm exhaust fan that's included with that case with the 140mm ARGB fan down below.
