Birthday build / upgrading my pc, stuck on gpu.

Budget (including currency): $2500 USD

Country: USA

Games, programs or workloads that it will be used for: Gaming, school, some light coding, single player new games like cyberpunk, and popular titles like tarkov and league as well as games like civ 6. 

Other details upgrading from my current system which is Ryzen 5 5600x, 2080 super, 16gb ddr4 3200 corsair ram, and its starting to underperform/ run hot and I want to treat myself for my 30th birthday coming up. I don't need any perifs to my knowledge. I've already been picking up pieces from this list and am confident about the overall build. What I'm currently stuck on is knowing which gpu to get for my needs. I currently game on 2 32-inch curved monitors, the main one running 1440p at 165hz the second running at 1440p 60hz. Ideally i play at 1440p on ultra with the occasional ray tracing games like cyberpunk or anything that supports it. Based on my research i should pick the 4070ti super for my price range and needs, but i know the 7900xt is priced better and offers similar performance. But i get discouraged by RT performance.

 

I've attached my parts list, and if you have any firsthand experience with any of these parts, or with RT on the Radeon card, please let me know, also not sure if i have a large enough psu, or if any of the other components have issues working with one another. I've done a fair bit of research but sometimes firsthand experience from you guys might go a little further.

 

UPDATE: Aesthetics of the overall build is important to me and i know its overkill, but i want to move from my boring no flair pc to something a little more modern/ rainbow vomit. Things i have already purchased include:

Mobo, PSU, Case, and CPU

 

Thanks for your tips in advance!

Hmm, your list has like $500 in mostly useless stuff like 12x RGB $30 apiece fans PLUS a fanless $180 case PLUS a $180 AIO to cool a 65W chip, and well now you're lacking money for the GPU ? 😄

At that budget you can just get a 7950X3D and a 4080S and for less money !

 

Just get some fan and RGB hubs tho 🙂

This is fair, i forgot to note the pieces ive already purchased and that I prefer the aesthetics of the overall build, even though its priced higher due to this fact. I figure also if a 4071ti super or Radeon 7900xt would be enough to do the job, then there was no need to pay the extra 2 or 300 for a 4080.

Really aesthetics are pretty similar...and I kinda prefer the Antec, not even counting the $500 savings 🙂

If you're in RT (Cyberpunk !) get the 4070Ti for 1440p

If you switch from Lian Li lighting to Deepcool a substantial saving can be realized.

80+ ratings certify electrical efficiency. Not quality.
