Current Build

Budget (including currency): 2.5K GBP

Country: UK

Games, programs or workloads that it will be used for: Hitman/GTA/CP2077/RDR2/D2/Resident Evil/TLOU, and compiling code.

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): 

No existing parts. Old PC will be kept so I can use for kernel driver development, but it's not great. RX580, my beloved, a truly tragic cpu, 500gb sata, 2td hd. Buying new peripherals too, included in budget. Looking for 1440p/4K, buying around september. Looked at 3090/3090ti's though people have implied its not my best option. PC part picker link attached, but it does not have parts for a custom loop which I am currently planning on. Any advice on the custom loop or what to amend about my parts list would be stellar. Potentially a 7900XT instead of the 3090/3090ti? Thanks B)

You want 2x16GB DDR5-6000 CL30 and a ATX 3.0 psu for these RTX 40XX cards due to the adapter. 1440P would allow you to maintain a decent amount of frame rates without breaking the bank. This case down below was named case of the year on multiple tech sites and not only is it easy to work with, it has great airflow. btw you want to run Windows 11 with these newer gen Intel cpu's. I'm going to post some links below this build for you to have a look at.

Wow great info, thanks so much for the response I really appreciate it. You're the second person to recommend the 4070ti super which seems to be a great pick looking at the performance and the price, thanks. Sorry if im being slow, but are you saying the 4k monitor isn't worth it? Sorry, still learning here, why is that RAM preferable, and why is that mobo the better pick? Just trying to understand so I can do better in the future. Also win10 is my preferred OS due to Driver Signature Enforcement in win11, is that going to be an issue? The CPU in the build you sent is more expensive, and user benchmark seems to show its slower, any reason to choose it over the original I had? Once again thanks for the well thought out and useful response!

Windows 11 works better with these cpu's in regards to thread scheduling. Windows 11 was more or less taylored for these cpu's when Intel 12 gen was released. The only true 4K gaming gpu imo is the RTX 4090 and they aren't cheap. The 4070 Ti Super allows you to use DLSS 3.0 which is a nice feature for some of these recently released AAA games.

Super useful again, absolute legend. Leaning towards the 1440p monitor, I just saw a 4K monitor that seemed like an obscenely good deal and got excited. Why would that mobo and ram and cpu be better? I amended the list slightly based on what you and the other people said. (couldnt find your psu linked so I changed it to something that was seemed similar)

2x8GB of DDR5 is slow due to latency issues. 2x16GB DDR5-6000 CL30 is the sweet spot. That Asus mobo is on sale atm for 160 quid. Here's another board to have a look at.

You're  a legend. 32gb it is. I'll be buying in September before the school year starts again, so I'll check for sales and everything then. Just wanted a general outline in my head and some advice on what parts to look for and to avoid.
