Hey!

https://pcpartpicker.com/list/c3gtwz

Does anyone have recommendations or thoughts on this? I don't trust myself enough with the cables for that GPU so I will go to a local shop to get it built. I am using this for working in After Effects and rendering as I am tired of waiting for my videos to render or have slow previews. I also love playing games and my old r9 390 isn't doing it anymore, neither is my i5 6600k. The 3080ti might be an overkill here as I initially thought of going for a 3060ti but through lucky circumstances, it's possible for me to get the expensive one. I heard the 3080ti tends to get quite hot so I wanted a good airflow and a case that looks ok with only slight RGB influences, especially since I use HUE and the Asus mainboard can also access them. I was contemplating an AOI (for the look obviously) but as my old build had the Dark Rock already and was almost silent, I think I'll be going for it again. Noise is obviously important as I listen to a lot of music and sounds for work and not always want to wear headsets.
Especially afraid of the dimensions of the GPU as I am unsure if it will fit in the case.
The PC will have additional SSDs obviously but I will use them from my old one.

Please let me know what you think!
Cheers

Should fit alright, but you need a larger power supply to run a 3080Ti. By itself with boost profiles it can pull upwards of 450W (or more) Many smaller PSUs will have overcurrent protection tripped. Minimum you should use is 850W.

I don't see how the cabling is difficult, should be a relatively straightforward build. 3 8-pin PCIe connectors going to the GPU, and the motherboard ATX and supplemental power connectors for the CPU, that would be it.

Thank you so much everyone already!
I will then upgrade the PSU to 850W - any experience with Corsair vs bequiet? I am debating whether I should be going for the 850 Watt be quiet! Straight Power 11 Modular 80+ Gold or the Corsair RMx (2018) 850 W 80+ Gold as I've never had Corsair before.

Also, guess I will get a Gen3 then, haha.
