Why not go for Z490 and a 10th gen CPU? For pure gaming the 10600k is enough, 10700k is a good choice too.

Wait for the RTX3070 in October. Or buy a used RTX 2080Ti now.

Pretty good otherwise.

Thanks for the reply!

Yeah that should be good, maybe I'll upgrade to the 10th gen then. Although when I do so with the Z490 it lists this compatability error:

Corsair iCUE 4000X RGB ATX Mid Tower Case has a front panel USB 3.2 Gen 1 Type A port, but the Asus ROG STRIX Z490-E GAMING ATX LGA1200 Motherboard does not have sufficient USB 3.2 Gen 1 headers. The case USB 3.2 Gen 1 Type A port will not be usable.

Is this a big deal?

And is it that worth it to wait for the rtx 3080? Or will the 2080 super work fine.

RTX3080 is available now, if you can find one in stock, but is $700. Quite a performance jump, even over the 2080Ti. RTX3070 is slated to be $500 and should be faster than the 2080 Super.

Look for a used 2080Ti would be my "I want it right this second" advice. Last I saw they were running about $500.

nowinstock.net if you want to try and grab an RTX3080. Took me three days to get the GTX1080 I wanted at launch, think I made about 4 purchases before one went through.

As for the compatibility issue, try a different motherboard. Depends on what ports and headers your chassis has and the motherboard has sockets for. Basically saying the motherboard you have selected will not be able to get the type-C port on the case hooked up. You'll need to find with Type-C support for the front panel, essentially. Look at more expensive boards. Or you can buy an expansion card for the front panel.
