As the tittle sudgest, I plan on making my own pc on a budget of 1800. What would be the best parts, including an rtx 2080. Yes I know the new cards will be out soon but I've decided to settle for the RTX 2080. Any help would be appreciated.

are you only gaming?
Are you gaming+video editing/rendering?
Simply put what are the things this pc will mainly be used for xD
Yeah sorry haha, I mostly plan on using it for gaming, the new flight simulator at max graphics 1440p and 60 fps or more.

I like the case, here's what i made. https://pcpartpicker.com/list/v733Qq
What could i replace or adjust to get the most bang for my buck? I'm pretty new to pc building and I also want to install it with windows 10, how would that work?
Ryzen could also work,but intel is still the king of gaming.
Thats why i asked you what are you going to be doing with this pc.I edited your list,heres what i made: https://pcpartpicker.com/list/pbW6Gc
What i did:
-i added a aftermarket cooler since the stock one is bad and you would have high temps.I changed it to AIO cooler and the temps will be lower and it will be much more quieter
-You dont really need 32gb of ram if you will be doing just gaming.32gb is used when you are gaming and doing some heavy video rendering/editing
-i put a 1tb m.2 for games and windows,and 2tb hdd if you run out of m.2 space
-i changed the psu so you have more wattage
for windows 10 you can buy keys for like 15$ of of some sites

I like that a lot more. And I understand, I was under the assumption that amd was good for gaming. So if i were to build this, I shouldn't have any dimension problems, correct? And as for the windows 10 keys, could you give me a website? And if so, how would I implement said key?
Edit: Would the case in your previus link work better or should I stick with the current one?

For the case both of them would do great,i just choose the phanteks one because i know it xD
Here is the website for windows keys:https://www.urcdkey.com/microsoft-windows-10-pro-oem-cd-key-global_1966-20.html#tec
i watched some techsource video and i saw this link.I mean im sure it isnt fake if a channel with 2,7 mil sponsors it xD
For the activation,go to this link: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/12440/windows-10-activate and read everything that it has to say under Activate using a product key

Ahh I see, I'm still a bit confused on how the pc will know to go to windows 10. Once i build this pc and boot it, what excatly will happen? Also how will I install the water cooler? Sorry for being such a bother

You are not a bother you just need help with pc's.No one knew everything from the start,thats why we ask.
The cooler will have a manual in which there is a tutorial on how to correctly install the cooler,so no worries there.If you still need help with the installation you can always come here and ask for help.The process of installing windows on the first boot unfortunatelly i cannot explain to you,since i dont know anything about it yet and i dont want to mess things up by giving you false information.

I understand, thank you. The list that you gave me, I'm more than likely going to get it. I'm very nervous about this, especially on how the pc will boot up with the case and the windows 10 situation. If I were to buy a key from them would i receive an email with it? If so then i should leave that for last, correct? Also, once i boot it up after building, what system OS would it give me? Again im sorry for the barrage of questions.
