And Most Importantly, Why I’m Upgrading: Well it’s about that time. My rig right now is a i5-6600k with a gtx 1060 6gb GPU, 8 gb of ram, 500gb ssd on a MSI gaming board. It’s out of date and just can’t keep up especially with the new monitor I have.

I really want a i9-9900k intel chip and a RTX 2080ti 11gb gpu, 16gb of ram and 1TB ssd.

So I wanted to ask and see what others would build using $3000 and the above mentioned chip and gpu.

Here’s what I put together real quick from parts picker.

Intel i9-9900k cpu

Corsair H100i Pro liquid cooler

MSI RTX2080ti gaming x trio gpu


G skills trident Z RGB 16gb DDR4 3200 for the ram

Samsung Evo 860 1 TB ssd

Corsair 780T ATX full tower case

EVGA supernova G3 750w 80+ ATX power supply

Asus 24F1ST optical drive

That’s just what I’ve put together real quick. So what would you all do with the money?
