Hey so not to sound stupid but I’m trying to build a gaming pc and I was wondering if I could get some opinions on the topic. I’m trying to make it affordable within my budget and if I go with the 2700x I can also get a zotac 2080ti. With a G sync gaming monitor, keyboard/mouse and headset this puts the total price at around 3030. Will the 2700x bottleneck my gaming gpu performance or am I fine? Be advised this is my first build. Basic parts list is as follows:

AMD - Ryzen 7 2700X 3.7 GHz 8-Core Processor
Corsair - H150i PRO 47.3 CFM Liquid CPU Cooler
MSI - X470 GAMING M7 AC ATX AM4 Motherboard
G.Skill - Sniper X 32 GB (2 x 16 GB) DDR4-3600 Memory
Western Digital - Blue 1 TB 2.5" Solid State Drive
Zotac - GeForce RTX 2080 Ti 11 GB GAMING AMP Video Card
Lian-Li - PC-O11AIR ATX Full Tower Case
Corsair - Professional 1200 W 80+ Platinum Certified Fully-Modular ATX Power Supply
Acer - Predator XB241YU 23.8" 2560x1440 165 Hz Monitor
Thermal Grizzly - Hydronaut 3.9 g Thermal Paste

PSU is overkill, get the Seasonic Focus Gold Plus 750W, doing so should save you a bit of cash.

As for the CPU/GPU combo it should be fine for the most part with that monitor, especially if you overclock that CPU.

Going with 32gb of memory and no SSD is kind of foolish, at the very least grab a Crucial MX500 500gb M.2 SSD.

Love the case!

Since your getting a AIO then I would save some more money and get the 2700.

Thanks man. Trying to build this for cyberpunk 2077. I guess another question i have is if the bios for the motherboard will accept the 3rd generation CPU’s?

The price I would have a hard time with would be $1200 for a RTX2080ti.

With the budget for such a graphics card, I think I would jump on a i7-9700K @$420 if the main use was for gaming.
Well I suppose for $3000 the build could be reworked with a 9700K/RTX 2080 for 1440P/165hz and the GPU has plenty of power to be able to run most games on the highest settings.

I still think the 2700X though is the better buy though, especially considering Ryzen 3rd Gen is coming up, could grab the 2600/1700 as a placeholder.

I’m just tired of my old Xbox one. The thing is 5 years old, it heats up, there’s stutter in the frame rate during gameplay and now there’s even options for streaming while you play which honestly sounds fun.

Well this system, be it if you go for either 2700X/2080 ti or 9700K/2080, is going to absolutely crush as console out there.

As for your Xbox, if you clean it out, replace the pads & thermal paste it should help with the overheating/stuttering.
