He did say that it's an old build.

He'd also have to upgrade the CPU, motherboard AND ram, so its not exactly the most cheapest part to upgrade.

If you absolutely have to stay in budget, you can always swap the 2070 out for the 2060.

I would replace the 9700K for a 9600K and a few parts and get a 2080ti if you can afford to spend $100 more. Instead of getting the 3 RGB fans, you can get a couple of LED strips which will be much cheaper. The X62 is kind of expensive compared to the H100i, and since you're going for a 9600K you won't need quite as much cooling.

The thermal paste which comes preinstalled on AIOs is more than good enough.

If you're not going to overclock, you can save a lot of money by not buying an overclocking motherboard and CPU cooler. Non-K CPUs from Intel come with a cooler already.

i9-9900K: Currently the best gaming CPU bar none. 8 cores/16 threads running up to 5GHz will be fantastic for both gaming and software developing. With the overclockable motherboard you will be able to tinker with it in the future should you wish.

H100i Pro: 240mm CPU cooler will keep those temps nice and cool. Plus, it looks nice! I'd recommend installing this in the front of the case.

Trident Z Ram: This happens to be RGB, but is actually very well priced. I've opted for 2x16GB sticks which leaves you two slots free should you wish to upgrade to 64GB in the future.

Storage: I've put in one 500GB M.2 SSD to house your OS and favourite games/applications for really fast boot times. Theres also a 1 TB SSD for the rest of your storage. Should you wish the case has more than enough room to fit an HDD in the future should you want more storage.

RTX 2080: A good GPU. Not much else to say. It'll demolish most of what you throw at it.

Meshify C TG: The Tempered Glass will add another dimension to how your build looks, and really make your components pop. The PSU shrould will hide most of the cables and it has plenty of cable management area behind the tray. Two included fans (which I would recommend moving to the top and bottom of the case for neutral airflow) is great too. Fractal really know how to make good cases.

MG279Q: My personal monitor and my favourite. 144hz, 2560x1440p and IPS makes gaming, watching videos, just about doing anything on this monitor an absolute joy. The IPS is especially nice- colour reproduction is amazing. Tweaking will be needed to be done personally, as is with the same with all monitors fresh out the box. 144hz is also not to be underestimated- you may not notice the biggest of differences upon first playing on it, but once you go back to a 60hz monitor- my God THAT'S when you notice it. Once you go 144hz, you never go back.

K70 with Cherry MX Brown: Corsair make good keyboards. MX Brown in my opinion offer the best balance between clicky-gamer style keyboards and general typing pleasure whilst not being too loud.

G502: One of the most popular mouses of all time for good reason. Satisfying mouse clicks with enough buttons on the side, optional weights to be added if you like it to be heavier, as well as an infinity scroll wheel makes for a very, very comfortable mouse.

If you do want to go balls-to-the-walls with the budget, there are two options; you can either go for a second monitor, or you can go for a 2080ti. Whilst you can always add another monitor later, switching GPUs later will be much, much more expensive.

I hope that clears a few of my choices up :).

With this budget you are far better off going for a non-overclockable build. It will save you a lot of money which would otherwise go into an overclockable CPU, a heatsink as well as an overclockable micro-atx board which are more expensive than their atx counterparts.

The saved money means more money can be put towards an RX 580. For skyrim (and most games) the GPU is going to be more important.

The case has 1 fan preinstalled in the back so I've put two more in the parts list for the front. There's a small SSD to install your OS and Skyrim so they load fast.

Great gaming CPU and plenty of overclocking potential with a beefy CPU cooler- this can be replaced with a slightly less expensive one if RGB isn't your thing- same with the RAM.

In mind of aesthetics, I've put a case with tempered glass in to make sure it looks as good as possible- again replaceable with a cheaper case.

GPU is just there for placeholding.

Ok, first one is a non-overclocking build which enables more money to be put towards a more powerful GPU. This should be good if you are predominantly gaming with a little streaming to the side. 6 cores is more than good enough paired with a 2070. There is an SSD which will house your OS and a few of your favourite games/applications, with an HDD to house everything else.

If you aren't going for OC then you don't need an AIO, or any aftermarket cooler. You can instead use that money to get better components elsewhere, such as more RAM, a better CPU even.

Here's one to your specifications though: there is 1 1TB SSD instead of two, separate smaller ones:

Great build!

I wouldn't buy a 1080ti for SLI when the time comes around. I used to run two 1070s in SLI before switching out for a single 1080ti and the difference is huge. Not all games support SLI and it can be a hassle configuring your system to match certain games' requirements. You'll also have to deal with more noise, higher thermals etc.

My personal rule of thumb is to go for a single more powerful card over SLI. After all if you sell the 1080ti on ebay/wherever and then get a new, more powerful card you won't be losing out on too much.

Right, this is ridiculous.

Every single last one of your topics has been asking others to come up with builds with a ridiculous budget.

This is your 5th forum post, all of which are on the exact same topic. Not even two weeks ago you were asking about a build for $10,000. You obviously have no intention of building any PC from any of the budgets from any of the forum posts you've made. You said you were going to build one of the builds suggested on your 1st forum post and then proceeded to ask for a $10,000 build, now asking for a $3,500 one.

Instead of wasting everybody else's time, educate yourself with PC components and come up with part lists yourself.

You can save a little money on getting different RAM- your motherboard supports speeds of up to 2666 MHz, so I got RAM of that speed. I also went with a different motherboard which is slightly larger but will look far better in an ATX case (same price too).

I would save a lot of money and go for a slightly slower SSD- while the 960 Evo is a fantastic SSD, a more standard SSD would be more suitable for the budget.

I would get a better quality PSU and a nicer case- the S340 is one of the best value ATX cases ever made and has a ton of really good features. It'll really make your build pop- I'm of the opinion that if you're going to be spending a decent amount of money on a build you may as well make it look good with a good case.

Lastly, I would go for a more powerful Wi-Fi adapter which slots into a PCI slot.

You've gone for an unlocked processor with a locked motherboard- you won't get any overclocking done. I've changed the motherboard to one which is suitable.

I'd honestly go for a top-notch air cooler than a 120/140 liquid cooler, you'll probably find you'll get better temps and noise levels.

PSU is fine, good quality.

The motherboard has USB type 3.0- the old one has plenty too if you want to go for a locked build.

I would spend a little more money on getting a quality case with tempered glass. The S340 Elite is a fantastic choice- went with the white variant to offer more contrast in the build.

I would also spend $10 more to get a substantially larger and better SSD from Crucial.

Lastly, the GTX 1070 you chose is a little pricey- you can get one from EVGA which is around $50 less.

You'll find Ryzen far better for the Rendering and 3D animation in terms of times. For gaming, the Intel build is better.

8 cores is enough for both streaming and gaming.

No need for the extra thermal paste, the one included with the CPU cooler is more than good enough.

Would personally go for the Strix motherboard, offers pretty much all of what the Hero offers at a lower price.

Personally using both a 1080p and a 1440p display I would go for a 1440p one. The extra real estate and size of the monitor will do wonders for gaming, and you can always buy a second monitor in the future :).

You will be getting far above 60FPS on maximal graphics settings on most titles. You'd be hitting 60fps on most titles with GTX 1060 let alone a 1070.

No point going for WD Black, WD Blue will do the same job at a much better price.

I reckon the white S340 Elite will be better, it has both black and white elements inside and outside the case and will fofer much better contrast to your build.

Lastly, I presume you're keeping the Window open to SLI- I would get a 750W PSU to keep optimal fan and efficiency curves for the PSU as well as giving you pretty much unlimited overclocking headroom.

Look at cablemod for both cables and LED strips.

Kyle from Bitwit did a review on that case, and it overall came across as a little...disappointing. The fans aren't anywhere near as bright as they look in the photos. Dust filter on top is razor-sharp and could result in some nasty scratches. Going for something like a Corsair 460X or a case from Phanteks would be a better bet.
