If possible please include a Pcpartpicker.com list. This DOES NOT include monitor, keyboard, mouse, speakers, etc.

Looking forward to seeing what you guys come up with. As you can imagine I am thinking about going with a brand new build. The $2000 is marginally flexible.

Thanks!
Prodigy


EDIT

Here is my final build after the help of the entire community. Thank you everyone for your suggestions and input. If there ends up being any killer black friday deals please feel free to shoot me message with a link. I would greatly appreciate it. Until next time!

This would be what i would do:
You could definitely get more performance at the same budget but i prefer stability, long term reliability and ability to run at 100% utilization for days.
It's not a full gaming build either as i prefer an all-around solid system that can do anything i want it to do from gaming to experimenting with virtual servers.

About the part choices:
CPU: 3700x would have been enough but i went with the 3900x as it gave bigger overall performance increase than going from a 2070 super to a 2080 super would have given.
Motherboard: Wifi is a must as is solid power delivery.
GPU: Would have gone for the RX 5700 XT but the 2070S has better support for older games alongside raytracing (for all that's worth)
Case: I prioritized airflow which can also be seen from the fan choices.
PSU: Super flower based platform and overspeccing on the wattage for maximum reliability and long term use.
Fans: the Noctuas would be used to replace the stock fans and would fill up the 3 front slots and the 1 rear slot.

I don't know what your interests are. As you make no mention of build requirements for yourself. This build is just what I would build for myself.

While I don't have much interest in a hackintoh. Beyond tinkering. It would bug me to know I could not turn my main computer into one. Although I already have an iMac and Macbook Pro.

Not that it matters much. The CPU and GPU I listed are far beyond anything I have use for.

I've never owned a really fancy motherboard before, I#ve always bought boards for 100 to 120. If I had 2k to spend I would buy a system with a fancy motherboard lol

I have an Asus Vega 56 I got used for a great price and have been impressed with the heatsink/fan on it it's damn good so that's why I went for an Asus video card for some extra monies.

I would make some savings in places in order to step up to a 9700 or 9700k, or go for an AMD 3700x. A 6c6t cpu makes no sense in an $1800 system IMO.

Thanks Flayed. I agree that a 9700(k) would be very appropriate for this build.
There is a weird social component to this too. Of course, I asked their parents for permission to give this to the kids, and their mom isn't thrilled about me spending a lot on a gift - she was (somewhat) convinced by the "nothing too powerful or expensive, just a little i5" argument.

Apologies to Prodigy for hijacking his thread.

Wish I had an uncle like you :D

And like someone else said, yes, thanks so much uncle bob, but a 9700k would have been great !
Do you think it NEEDS more processor? I'm not a gamer (much) - all my previous builds have been HEDT workstations with raid cards and stacks of disks, this is my first gaming oriented machine, so I'm a little bit out of my area with this build. My research indicated that the 9600k should be enough to push that 2070S, but maybe not?

Whether it's "enough" or not depends on what it's used for, I suppose. I think what the other person (and I) was referring to is perhaps the fact that, if you're willing to spend so much, it makes sense to compromise on something else and somehow fit a 9700K in there.

It's the online fps games such as Battlefield V I believe which tend to micro stutter on 6c6t cpu's
