I'm trying to build a very good gaming PC that will handle primarly league of legends at around 300-400 fps 1080p medium details.
According to benchmarks this can be achieved with RTX 2080 Ti so i am trying to build around this GFX.

I would appreciate help building the correct setup of parts that work well together. Also should i go for Intel or AMD for RTX 2080 Ti?

Budget around 3000-3500$.

Why 300 FPS for LoL?

Is this in US dollars? You want to build a $3500 computer for LoL?
League is not a well optimized game, so during teamfights you often have drops of 30 or 40%.
In order to stay above 240 fps to match the 240 Hz monitor, i'd like to have an average of 380-400.
I play this game for a living so i'm sort of just investing into my work here.

I have Samsung 850 Evo 1 TB, is there any big difference between that one and Intel 660p Series except the size? I'm considering just not buying a new SSD and keep the one from old PC instead, if there's not much difference.

I find LoL one of the best optimized games. It can run on any potato. The fact that it drops frames at teamfights is connected to the fact that you have much more graphics and effects to render. So if you running at 100 fps while on your lane 1v1 with some minions, you should expect to run at 80fps on teamfight with 4+ players casting abilities and effects going hard.
Also, if you really need to run LoL at 240fps which is kinda waste for a moba game, you can do it with a mid range GPU on medium settigs 1080p. RTX 2080ti can run everything at 4K ultra 60fps and its just too much for 1080p LoL.
If you really want to do that, you can just go for a Ryzen 5 3600 and 16Gigs of RAM. (if the only thing you play is LoL and you dont do streaming, rendering etc.)

It's well optimized in the sense that it can run on almost all weaker machines, yeah.
I don't want to maintain just 240 fps at the beginning, because the game will eventually be updated.

The same way how my current build with GTX 970 i purchased 4 years ago managed over 300 fps on league low details, but now it only manages around 140 consistently with drops to 90-100 in teamfights.

So i'm looking to build a future-proof PC that will handle league a few years from now as well. And it's not just for league, i want to be able to stream my game sometimes as well and play brand new releases on PC too, which is why i'm focused on picking RTX 2080 Ti so much.

I'm still struggling to figure which CPU to pair the GPU with, bmockeg gave me a Ryzen above, but i did some research and Intel processors seem to have better performance results when paired with RTX 2080 Ti.

There is less than 1% difference between a 9900k and a 3900x. 12 cores and 24 threads is a better deal. If you decide to stream you’ll not see a performance drop from either. Nothing wrong with a 9900k, but if I was building a PC right now I’m getting the 3900x and newer technology.

I bet you will get no difference in fps between a RTX 2080ti and lets say a Radeon 5700 for 1/4 of the money. I think you will rather be cpu bond then limited by your gpu.

I would get a R5 3600 a B450 Tomahawk and a Radeon 5700xt just to be save. Crucial ballistix 32 gb Ram overclocked and an M.2 ssd. Overall the setup is cheaper then a RTX 2080ti alone. Overpriced piece of hardware.
