TLDR: Could use some advice on this  €3000 Build                                                       (repost because i got 3 comments)
So I've been on this build for a long time now and its been 4 weeks since I made this list, is there anything to improve?
A lot has changed, the I7 got 150 euro's more expensive and maybe some new items got released but I am not up to date. Can anyone help improve my list? it is being built by a local hardware store. 


Case: NZXT H700i White/Black Windows € 199,00 
CPU: Intel Core i7-8700K Processor - 12MB Cache - 3.7 GHz - 6 Cores - Coffee Lake € 510,00
CPU Cooler: CoolerMaster MasterAir MA610P € 69,95 
Motherboard: MSI Z370 Gaming Pro Carbon € 166,90 
RAM: Corsair Vengeance LPX - 16GB Kit - 2x 8GB - 3000 MHz - CL15 - 1.35v € 194,95
SSD: Samsung 860 EVO SSD - 500 GB - 2.5" € 117,95 

HDD: Seagate Barracuda - 2TB - 7200 rpm - 64MB - 3.5" - Serial-ATA/600 € 69,95

Installation Windows € 29,00

*prices are from 3 weeks ago, only changed CPU price***I'm in Holland***

 

This build comes down to around 2000 euros, is there anything to improve with this build? Better Items? The budget can take many changes :)
For those interested in the monitors I'm getting with it: ACER Predator XB271HUBMIPRZ €689,00 and a ACER Nitro VG270BMIIX €179,10

i would go for Ryzen. The 2700x is a great CPU and the money you spend less there can you spend on a 2080 or a 1080ti

Honestly id look into Used market for the 8700k, and such online. Also I would look into the Dark rock pro 4 or the NHD15 cooler. I woudnt get that case imo, Phanteks enthoo pro m tends to be better value. Everything else is fine

Go with a 1080ti instead of a 1080. It will help you get closer to 144fps in AAA games.

How much for a BeQuiet DarkRock Pro4 or Noctua NH-D15 where you are?

I have indeed looked into this, the ryzen 2700x is a lot cheaper and with that, I could buy the 1080ti, but I got a few questions. does changing to AMD Ryzen change anything in game settings, windows or anything else like an AMD GPU does for Feesync?

BeQuiet DarkRock Pro4 is 80-90 euro and a Noctua NH-D15 is 90.
changing to a 1080ti will add 280 euro. Does that make up in performance??

Take a noctua if you want silence and aren't about looks. And yes a 1080ti really good and you would notice a bid difference

Whether or not it will be worth the cost is up to you to decide. Have a look at some benchmarks that compare the 1080 to the 1080ti at 1440p and see if the gain in performance (20-30%) is worth the additional cost. Here's one to get you started: https://www.tomsguide.com/us/nvidia-gtx-1080-ti-benchmarks,review-4241.html


If you were buying and building yourself you could also check the used market for 1080tis since the new RTX2080/RTX2080 tis have just been released. Might be able to find a used 1080ti for same price as a new 1080.

That sounds great, do you happen to know any websites in Europe (maybe Holland specificly) that are reliable for buying used parts?

No idea, I'm a long way away from Europe... Does Holland have Craigslist or Gumtree? Maybe even Facebook will have local Buy/Swap/Sells for your area that you can check for PC parts.

Check local trade websites and preference deals where you can meet the person face to face and actually test the card works before buying. Let them know before you meet that you want to test the card before you buy it, and most genuine sellers will be happy to let you test it. Take your computer with you to test it if you have to, most genuine sellers won't mind.

 

You can check eBay for deals, but if you're getting it shipped you won't be able to test the card before buying, and there are quite a few scams on eBay as well, especially for fake cards from China.

 

Really not sure what the prices of used cards will be like in your area, there might be a bunch of people trying to sell their cards and prices are low, or there might be none. Remember, if the deal sounds too good to be true, it probably is. (Example: https://linustechtips.com/main/topic/980983-did-i-just-get-scammed-new-1080-for-65/)

I have found something on facebook, 1080 ti STRIX GAMING ''new in box'' for €540, which is the exact same price as a 1080. It's (65 miles) away. Before I'd consider buying this I would visit the person and benchmark it. Maybe its damaged, who knows... When making the list of this build I never even considered buying used parts, it might end up saving me lots of money. Thanks for the advice!!
