Intel Core i7-9700K Coffee Lake 8-Core 3.6 GHz (or if you recommend razen)
MSI MPG Z390M GAMING EDGE AC LGA
DEEPCOOL Castle 360EX, CPU cooler
ASUS ROG STRIX GeForce RTX 2080 SUPER
CORSAIR Vengeance RGB Pro 32GB (2 x 16GB)

Any comments or advice?
My budget around $2000

My take is this:

If you want to go cheaper, I’d say drop down to a 3700x. 3800x is just the same thing with a bit more wattage. Both give you hyperthreading over a 9700k. 3900x isn’t much more and 12 cores! Great multitasking capability for the future.

Gskill IMO hands down best memory on the market, trident NEO is made specifically for AMD as well and there will be no compatibility issues.

$10 more gets you one of the faster NVME storage drives on the market, unless you already have the 860 then I’d keep what you have.

Seasonic Focus again IMO best PSU, Corsair and EVGA are both good depending on the model. Price on this is cheaper than anything but the EVGA base model and I would go with Seasonic and the long warranty.

Gigabyte has some great boards right now with solid VRM.

Case can be whatever you want really.

For video card prices I’d get a hybrid water cooled unit that will have better thermals.

Thank you for your time
bmockeg

I considered whatever you suggested and added it to my cart.
Couple of things I need to get more on please:

Motherboard: Would like it to support USB type C, WIFI, Bluetooth. Please recommend.
Video Card: Why not ASUS? And what about MSI GeForce RTX 2080 SUPER DirectX 12 RTX 2080 Super Gaming X TRIO 8GB 256-Bit GDDR6 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card?
Also, please recommend hybrid water cooled unit.
Case: I haven't decided yet. Probably will go with White and Class. Will see. But, any specific notes to choose to fit all the above?

Have I missed any item?

Thank you again dear. Appreciate your help.

Alright, the motherboard I linked has usb c capability for front, means if your case supports it then or have it. You can step up to the Aurous Pro WiFi and get USB C on the back. Both support WiFi and Bluetooth.

Any 2080 super unit will work just fine just the MSI version I linked comes with water cooling and is in the same price as air cooled.

Case is mostly preference.

I guess I will keep what you recommended initially. As soon as you don't see a different changing the video card.

So the only thing remaining here is the case? Nothing as most is missing right?

I know this is not a cheap case but I bought this for my build and I love it. ~150 bux.

It comes with a USB Type C front connector and a Fan controller and 2 front 140mm fan and a rear 140mm fan.
It has a tempered glass panel. It's a big medium size tower. Good quality build. Mesh at the front and top and filters. I think it's my favorite case so far. The side panels open with 1 finger and has magnets. It has a lot of place for the cables. You can remove the front and top panels for air flow or leave them there for a quiet system.

Phanteks P600S. You can get it in white.

It is GREAT choice to be honest. I liked it a lot.
I will check also if there is something similar. Since tpcpartspicker found Compatibility issues with the case and the video card.

I changed the video card to ASUS.
Here is the final selection: https://pcpartpicker.com/list/LkvJTC

If anyone would like to advise/add something necessary. Please feel free.
Thank you,

Looks good. If I were buying a case right now I’d get the lian li 011.

What about that EVGA card. Is it better/equivalent to ASUS?
Because the price different is good and some reviews saying their customer service are good. But not sure about the performance.

Video Card | EVGA GeForce RTX 2080 SUPER 8 GB XC GAMING Video Card | $683.98 @ Newegg
I have used quite a few EVGA cards. They are fine. As for performance there is not much noticeable difference between the different variants of the same card model.

Actually the P600S fit any GPU. The PCpartpicker website only tells you to make sure it does.

I have a 2080ti in that case at the moment and it still has a lot of place left.

Don't worry about the place in that case. It was made to leave you enough place for everything. Including cable management.

Oh thats good. In all cases al changes the video card yo egva since a lot of users recommend that. Then the message disappeared.

all parts available. Only the case required around three weeks to be available -_-
 
Can you please suggest motherboard that has USB-C from back to replace the one in here: https://pcpartpicker.com/list/sm3qWb

Same level or better (same price range)
All x570 boards have Type C header including the above board...
3 x USB 3.2 Gen 2 port(s) (3 at back panel, , 2 x Type-A+1 x USB Type-CTM)

Finding a board with that connector at the back will be a daunting task. Very few have them behind, if at all. You have to go through the details of every board at that price range. Thing is, you may end up finding one as well, but quality and feature of that particular board might not be good enough compared to the suggested board.
 
Aurous pro WiFi board has usb c on back
