First Build

TripleOne
 Share

Hello everyone!

 

This is my very first PC.  Here's the specs:

 

i9-7960X

Asus Prime X299 Deluxe

Samsung SSD 970 EVO M.2 2TB - 2x

Corsair DDR4 Vengeance RGB Pro PC25600 32GB (4x8GB) - 2x

Asus RTX 2080 Ti 11GB DDR6 Strix - 2x

Corsair Obsidian 500D RGB SE

Corsair AX Series Digital AX1600i Titanium

Corsair LL120RGB (Three Pack) - with Lighting Node PRO

Corsair Hydro Series H150i PRO Water Cooler

 

What are your thoughts on this build?

I will have to wait until December for the NVlink to be in stock in my country. For the time being, will the two RTX 2080 Ti work without NVlink?

 

Thank you :)

you can do a lot better, especially with that kind of money. what is your budget, where are you going to use it for and on what resolution/refresh rate are you going to do that?

No budget at the moment.

I want it to last for a long time. I will be using it for heavy gaming in 4K, anything above 60hz, and as a workstation as well.

Do you know if the two VGA will work just fine without NVlink?

going to take a look later. what workstation tasks?

and for the cards, you need a bridge to let them run together in games, but you can still run on 1 in the time it takes for the bridge

Microsoft Office... hahaha!

Okay, sweet! Hopefully, it's not too hard to install the bridge. 

Thank you :)

An i9 9900K would be better and cheaper, HEDT is not meant for gaming, you don't need 2x 2080 Ti since one is already capable of 4k120fps in any game with the slightest adjustment of settings.

 

This thread feels like the usual trolling, but if you're serious about just wanting the highest possible end gaming rig, even if you're rich, make the proper build.

I will keep that in mind. Thank you! :)

We won't have the 9900k until early next year in Asia.

you know, the singularity spectre would be the coolest case to get here. it's really expensive, but the best you can get. get a 9900k with it, a 2080 ti, a good mobo, some ram and build a full custom loop inside it. That would be really cool

Is the Asus Prime X299 Deluxe good enough?

I wanted the Extreme Rampage 6, but it's out of stock.

I will check the case out, thank you for the recommendation (y)

you're still going x-series?

the prime is a good mobo. should be enough, but you can get higher end than that
