Advice On My First Gaming PC Build

Dec 30, 2018
Hey guys,

I was hoping to call upon some experience PC builders/gamers, to hopefully help me by giving some advice on my first build so far. I’ve started from not knowing anything about PC’s and have been doing a ton of research. I feel like I have learned a lot, but I definitely still consider myself a novice. Just want to know if there are any potential problems I’ve missed, if everything is compatible, if anything is overkill for what I need, etc.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

- The PC will be primarily used for gaming at 1440p, 144hz ultra settings. Plus VR and just basic mainstream task. e.g. web browsing, video streaming, Microsoft word, etc.

- My budget is around $4,500 Australian

- I’m going for a black/RGB theme, with the GPU mounted vertically.

- I already have the GPU, which is actually the stock version of the Gigabyte RTX 2080 Aorus, not the xtreme. (I can’t find the non xtreme version on pcpartpicker)

Thank you in advance!
