B450 chipset is for AMD onlySpecs:
Intel Core i7 8700K (CPU)
Nvidia GTX 1080Ti (GPU)
HyperX 16GB DDR4 (RAM)
Samsung 860 EVO 500GB (SSD)
Seagate Barracuda HDD 1TB (HDD)
MSi B450 TOMAHAWK MAX (Motherboard)
Corsair CX650M 650-watt (PSU)
B350/B450 chipset supports overclocking. So I'm a bit confused by this statement. It's the A series chips that don't overclock.You will not be able to overclock, with that board.
Logain is referring to the B360.B350/B450 chipset supports overclocking. So I'm a bit confused by this statement. It's the A series chips that don't overclock.
Although the Asus Prime series aren't the best quality motherboards. The first choice of MSi B450 TOMAHAWK MAX (Motherboard) was a much better pick.
It'll work but the power delivery looks a bit too weak for that cpu.selected new motherboard: asus prime b360-plus, anything wrong with this one too?
Hello, a MSI GeForce RTX 2070 SUPER VENTUS OC is okay?B450 chipset is for AMD only
I would never buy a 1080Ti now. They cost a fortune used. Get a NVIDIA RTX2070 Super, NVIDIA RTX2080 Super, or AMD 5700XT. Speed of your RAM is important too. It also depends on your intended use too. If you want 4K gaming then RTX2080 Super. If you want 1440p you can run AMD's 5700XT and save some coin ($415 give or take with a decent cooler). Ray Tracing on anything less then a 2080 Super really isn't worth it. You'll often hit sub 60fps at 1080p
The new Corsair CX's are okay. People always make the mistake of cheaping out on power supply. Quality of power and warranty are important with mid to high end gaming builds.
I would aim for a TX-M or RMx series if possible. Or a Seasonic Focus Plus.
Found a MSI Z370-A PROYou really want to be looking at Z370 motherboards, not B360 ones. You're paying, after all, for a CPU that can be overclocked so it's a bit of a waste to pair it with motherboards that cannot take advantage.
Personally a fan or not, it's about getting you the biggest bang for your buck. If you absolutely need to have the fastest then without a doubt it will be Intel + NVIDIA. BUT (and that's a big BUT) if you have a target price window, then up to about $1200-$1500 system AMD will get you a faster system. Compare a $1200 Intel + NVIDIA system to a $1200 AMD + AMD system and you'll win with AMD.Im not personally a fan, or have knowledge about AMD processors, nor the graphics cards. Could you help me a little?
Im pretty sure ill change 8700K to 9700K since it produces less bottleneck (0.21%) And ill definitely check out some of those AMD cpus and cards, for sure.Personally a fan or not, it's about getting you the biggest bang for your buck.

The 2070Super is a good card. You will pay a bit of NVIDIA tax on it. It's a good 1440p card and a 4K card with some of the settings turned down.
As with everything it's about balance. at 1080p, the CPU typically becomes the limiting factor for frame rates. At 1440p it's a mix (depending on game/setup) at 4K, the video card becomes the limiting factor.
As with all things, it's about balance. And your gaming style (casual, eSports, AAA games), other uses, and monitor choice will affect what you should purchase.
Hello, found some bottleneck calculator, turns out the combination you gave me stands up to be an average 8% bottleneck.Im pretty sure ill change 8700K to 9700K since it produces less bottleneck (0.21%) And ill definitely check out some of those AMD cpus and cards, for sure.
Hey, thanks. Exactly what i needed to see.Here you go on the on the Intel side with a 8700K. I have added the Gigabyte Z390 Gaming X motherboard which has a great 10 phase VRM and is cost effective. RAM at DDR4 3200 and a decent Gold power supply. A 500GB NVMe Crucial P1 SSD which is very fast. This should give you an idea as to what you can do. The 8700K is a great Gaming CPU but if you can get the 9700K even better as it is right up there with the 9900K on the gaming side.
I have not added the GTX 1080Ti as I presume you already have it...but if not just add...
You could go to a 9700K which is only about $25 to $30 more
