Hello again everyone!

Nearly 5 years ago I was here asking for your advice. I received so many good suggestions that I could not help but come back again. I am afraid my build is starting to age a little bit and I believe it is time to upgrade a few things. Primarily I am looking into a new GPU and CPU. The RTX 2080 has caught my interest. I have my eye on one specifically. The "MSI - GeForce RTX 2080 Gaming X Trio 8GB". I am also looking to upgrade my CPU if you guys feel it is necessary. So here is my build. Please give me any input and advice on upgrades. I want to thank you all in advance for your replies and consideration. I would not have been able to enjoy the past 5 years the same without you!

Thanks for the build suggestions. Everything looks really good. I just have one question. Is there any reason why I should get a new case?
