This GTX1080Ti combo is around 40% more powerful than GTX1070Ti combo and around 80% more powerful than GTX1060 combo. In both the cases the gain you get is huge. All components are of high quality did not cheap out. Intel i7-8700 is able to handle games on par with R7 2700X OC.

I would say intel would be a better pick, almost same performance compared to AMD but you can overclock way more, u get this extra free performance.

So quick question that I'm just not smart enough to know: Do I need a cooler? Is a liquid one necessary or is a fan sufficient?

One last question: Will this unit be loud at all?

If you're going to buy a system like this you should at least learn to overclock and in which case you will need the additional cooling. Also if you go Intel, there is no stock cooler included so you will need one as well.

As far as noise goes I wouldn't worry about it too much.

Thanks Sir for the help! I am really attempting to learn more. I've overclocked my cell phones before but I feel this is a bit of a different animal to an extent. I'll take a ll the help people are willing to give!
