I just purchased a 11gb nividia geforce 2080ti but i have a gigabyte z370 hd3 motherboard, will that be okay to run a 2080ti with? Or should I upgrade the motherboard

your motherboard will be fine, but which CPU, PSU and RAM are you using?
Just what i like to hear thanks so much!

Intel® Core™i7 Six Core Processor i7-8700k (3.7GHz) 12MB Cache

CORSAIR 850W RMx SERIES™ MODULAR 80 PLUS® GOLD, ULTRA QUIET

32GB Corsair VENGEANCE DDR4 3200MHz (2 x 16GB)

You are fine with that combo, and that GPU. Only time you are going to see a performance hit, with regards to any modern motherboard, with a 2080ti, is if it is a low end board, that won't allow you to run your ram at its rated speed. Z series boards do not have this limitation, so you are fine. If you had a B or and H series board, then an upgrade would probably be recommended.
Absolutely amazing man, i was stressing for awhile there thinking i messed up with my upgrades, so thats a huge weight of my shoulders man, thank you for taking you time to write that message, highly appreciated man, huuge help!

No problem! Ram speed used to not be a big deal, with Intel, but it seems modern games it really can. Hence why a 4c/8t, R3 3300x / ddr4 3200 combo can beat a 6c/12t, i5 10400 / ddr4 2666 combo, in games. B, and H, series chipsets limit you to the rated ram speeds, of the CPU, which in your case would have been 2666.
