I'm looking to build a really nice gaming PC that can handle anything I throw at it. I want your opinion on my choices in hardware and also recommendations for what wiring materials (cables and the like) I will need. I only listed one hard drive as I already have a few tb+ hhds I can use for storage

Case
Corsair CC-9011141-WW Carbide Series SPEC-OMEGA RGB - $130 on eBay

Ram
Corsair Vengeance RGB PRO 32GB (4x8GB) DDR4 3600MHz C18 LED - $250 on eBay
CORSAIR Vengeance RGB Pro 64GB (2 x 32GB) 288-Pin DDR4 SDRAM DDR4 3600MHz - $350 on eBay

Processor
Intel Core i9-9900K - $519.99 on eBay
Intel Core i7-9700 - $346.99 on eBay

Motherboard
GIGABYTE Z390 DESIGNARE Gigabyte - $200 on eBay

GPU
RTX 2080 Super - $670 on eBay
Nvidia GeForce RTX 2070 Super - $485 on eBay

Power Supply
Corsair CP-9020180-NA RM850x 850 W 80 PLUS Gold Certified Fully Modular PSU - $120 on eBay

HHD (M.2)
Samsung 970 EVO Plus 1 TB - $220 on Amazon

Moniter
Acer Predator XB271HK - $355 x2 used on eBay


Most Expensive Setup Options: $2.900 or so w/ tax

Might need:

Cables?

Unless you're not planning to build for a month or two, maybe re-source your M.2 drive as Amazon will not be shipping for at least another month.

Depending on how many HDDs you have, you may need extra SATA data cables. Motherboard's typically come with two.

Alright! Glad to hear I don't need to buy a ton of cables. I should be good with hhd cables as I have some spares. Will consider a different M.2.

Do you guys happen to know if I need to get a rgb lighting hub to control fan and ram lights with Corsair's iCue software?

Turns out I have a Corsair TX Series™ TX650 PSU lieing around, but I still want to get the 850. Will post pictures when I've finished the build. Thanks.
