no case because cardboard boxes are a thing

You can always do ryzen 3 and get a case. The basic ryzen 5 model isnt that big of an improvement. 

Can it be done?  Assuming a 4K monitor (provided) at 60 fps, so CPU bottleneck won't be (as much of an issue).

 

whomever can make the most sensible list on that tight budget wins.  parts need to actually be priced at those levels currently.  no "you can get this part for 40% off if you just snipe on ebay"

It's impossible to build a practical computer with all new parts for that price and have it include a 1080ti.

Closest thing I could come up with for a full build, way better off spending an extra 200 or 300 bucks on a proper CPU.

Having a mobo that can overclock is important if going for an entry level ryzen. 

 

Also is a 450w psu enough for 1080 ti realistically
