RTX-2080 and new i9-9900k build

Hi guys, I am fairly new to building my PC I've been using gaming laptop for past 5-6 years. But the day has arrived. I have about 2k usd budget saved up and I want to build something with latest but not greatest hardware. I know intel announced their i9-9900k today about 488$ usd retail from October 18th onward and I also want to have the new RTX-2080 model (which is about 800$) so I want to built my pc around those two main components. I really dont have any idea about the motherboard, what do you guys recommend for motherboard and PSU? I play a lot of pubg and fortnite sometimes csgo. I dont care much about the watercooling and all that fancy stuff, built-in cooling suffice for me. And how much ram is enough, is 32gb ddr4 ram too much? does 16gb suffice for this kind of purpose and set up?

 

Thanks in advance!

I dont reccomend either. Get a 8700k, a 1080ti, and 16 gb of ram z370. The performance difference will not be enough to justify spending the $500+ extra for bran dnew parts

Really whats wrong with 9900?

We don't know how it performs yet. Regardless, it'll probably be a terrible value for gamers, delivering the same (if not lower) fps than the 8700k.

 

Ryzen 5 1600 @ 3.9 Ghz  | Gigabyte AB350M Gaming 3 |  PaliT GTX 1050Ti  |  8gb Kingston HyperX Fury @ 2933 Mhz  |  Corsair CX550m  |  1 TB WD Blue HDD


Inside some old case I found lying around.

It does not add anything worthwhile over the 8700k for pure gaming numbers. i dont reccomend i5's or i3's when there is ryzen chips that have multithreaded.

 

Realistically there isnt a difference between 190 fps and 205 fps, the added bonus there just isnt worth the extra money

No benchmarks, costs too much for what it is, Intel is just trying to pump out water from its sinking ship right now

 

An 8700K would be a much better buy if you're going for gaming performance.

Well I guess then its too early to speak about it. I will just wait until it comes out and read the reviews.

But 8700k cost 390$ and its only 100$ difference, you dont think its worth it? What about RTX-2080?

You could play those games on a Ryzen 5 and RX 580 for $600

Well I already have i7-7700 and GTX-1060 which is way better than RX580 and it runs those games fine. I was kind of looking for an upgrade. So I should just stay with what I have then. No reason to upgrade?

Unless you get a 1440p monitor that is also GSync capable and goes to at least 144Hz and you start playing AAA titles you would just be throwing money away.

I wouldn't recommend buying 8700k or 1080Ti. Those are fine at the moment for games out there, but you should think about how many years do you want to be able to play games with Ultra settings. You already can't play PUBG with 4K ultra >60fps with those, and fancier looking games will appear and those parts will get worse performance.

 

I bought my 9900K PC this morning and the mobo and PSU I picked were

  • MSI MPG Z390 Gaming Pro Carbon AC (I think its one of the rare mobos with 2 m.2 slots that have sata support + it has wifi and bluetooth support, but maybe needs an adapter) Anandtech - Choosing the right Z390 Motherboard
  • Corsair RM750X V2 750W (It was the most popular and came up my search for a quiet high quality PSU)
  • I chose 2x8GB ram with 4266Mhz because it is enough for now and I can add more later if I start to do some projects with UE4 that require more. PUBG definitely works better the faster the ram is

That's what I thought too, but seems like a lot of people have bad opinions on 9900k and 2080. I probably would need to wait for a little while and see how good 9900 actually is and see some benchmarks.

In some circles no Intel cpu is worth the price. It's true that Intel commands a premium price because its cpu generally outperform the competition.

 

Wait for the independent reviews and benchmarks before deciding. Just based on the specs it seems likely to me that Coffee Lake Refresh cpu are going to be noticeably better than Coffee Lake, especially for overclockers.

80+ ratings certify electrical efficiency. Not quality.
