I am looking at building a new PC in the range of 2000-2500$ I already have a few things bought like my case, power supply, hard drive and m.2. I really want to buy either an Intel i7 9700k or i9 9900k for CPU and an RTX 2080 or 2080 ti as my GPU. I'm tempted to water cool the whole build, But its a fairly daunting task for me.

I plan on overclocking the CPU and GPU and water cooling the CPU with a closed system water cooler. After a few months of looking around, I have created a somewhat complete part list. Parts that are not listed are things that I have already had.

Part List:

Please check over my part list and point out any issues with the parts like performance loss or future issues. Recommendations for Parts that I could replace would also be nice.

Please keep in mind that this is only my second time building a PC and that I've only been a part of the PC community for a few years now. Thanks for any advice!

You don't really need the godlike gaming mobo. A gigabyte aorus master, asrock phantom gaming 9 or Asus rog hero would do imo.

Get the kraken X72 or the coolermaster ML 360 R cooler. The 9900k runs very hot.

Go for the 2080ti with the saved cash.

Also, can you list which case and power supply you have bought?
