Some might advocate faster RAM, but 3000Mhz should be fine.  OC that cpu tho on a new mobo.

 

Go ahead and throw that overpriced bad boy in there and hope it doesn't die. :)

I would say to either:

 

a) Get a locked i7-8700 instead of a K CPU, since you have a B360 motherboard.

or

b) Get a Z370 motherboard so you are able to make full potential of your i7-8700K.

I'd go with option B.

This is good and all, but spend less on storage so you can get a better GPU. Either way, the 1070 Ti will struggle a bit at that high a fresh rate in some games. If you’re spending $2300 you should be budgeting more than $450 for a GPU

He said he's going to upgrade to the RTX 2080Ti down the line, so it's fine for now. He can always get a 1080 Ti used.

Ohhh you listed your current PC. Sorry the PCPP list was kind of misleading.

 

No you don’t need to upgrade anything if you’re buying a 2080 Ti. Your CPU is great for it and the card will destroy games at 1440p. Enjoy your beast

 

edit: get a Z370/390 board so you can overclock lol no point in having that CPU and cooler if you can’t stretch it’s legs!

Oh. I think he should still get a new motherboard to get the most out of the 8700K (Prime Z370-A masterrace) but y'know whatever

See edit. I agree. Also, I got a Z370-A when I upgraded to the 8700K and it had a mem bus problem. Still not entirely sure what it was but it would randomly hang in boot with some configurations of my memory. Ended up getting a Strix Z390-E cause the Asus BIOS is just too damn good.
