I love everything about this build. Awesome work.
Very nice work, incredible build!
Gorgeous build, great work!
What country are you in? I want to make sure I have all the prices correct for you. Also, do you need the full setup? Monitor, mouse, keyboard, headset/speakers?
Have you thought about going Ryzen? I got you 4 more cores and twice the RAM for $100. I threw in a nicer 2080 SUPER, too.

The build looks great! I'd probably get a 650W just to be safe. It doesn't seem like any of your workloads would benefit significantly from going up to the 3700X.
A blower is a type of cooling system for the GPU. Just a basic design with a single fan that blows hot air out the back of the card to cool. Partner cards usually have an open air design with 2 or 3 fans on a more substantial heatsink. Here's a good article explaining the differences.
I agree with getting a 5700XT and seeing how you like the performance. If the performance isn't up to par, upgrade the CPU to the 3700X (and possibly some faster RAM). If you still want more performance, you might want to consider a 2080 SUPER or something similar to pair with that.
Here's an AMD based option:
The AM4 socket is going to give you some more room to upgrade later and generally be better value for your money especially at this price point. Changing that, I was able to squeeze a bit more performance out of the GPU for $20 less.
Is the GPU the only thing you have purchased or do you have everything on the list?
You can get used 1070s on ebay for right around $200 a lot of the time.
This is probably your best bet. You'll be able to add more memory, but there might be limited options for the CPU as of right now. That's when I would probably recommend getting a Threadripper CPU, especially for virtualization.
This is what I was able to put together:
I would have liked to get you a higher core CPU, but the Threadrippers go far too up in price it looks like.
Wow, incredible job with the cable management. Looks great!
It's awesome to see a high performance full AMD build. Nice work, enjoy!
Looking at these benchmarks it's gonna be pretty close, but I think the 5700XT is better value and it also supports PCI-E Gen 4. The 2080 Super will definitely be the fastest of them all, but at a much different price point.
Here's what I came up with:
I got you a higher quality board so you could upgrade to 3rd gen Ryzen in the future if need be. Otherwise, for a monitor, a 1080p 144hz or 1440p 60hz would pair well with this build. Either would be right around $250.
Do you already have a mouse/keyboard/monitor/windows?
Just barely got under your budget, but you could shave a few more bucks off depending on your storage needs. This is a pretty good build:
If you want better gaming performance right away, get the GPU. If you want faster renders/streaming, get the CPU.
Couldn't have put it together any better myself. This will work great.
I agree with all of this. The 5700 XT is awesome, too. Here's what I came up with:
Looks awesome! That will be a great combo. I gave you faster RAM (RGB too! It's on sale), more storage, and a slightly lower wattage PSU that will still be more than enough.
Yes, actually. I had to double and triple check the motherboard manual online and that's the way it's supposed to be.
32GB is likely going to be more than enough, but it depends exactly what applications you are using. Then, you can invest as much as you can into the CPU.
I would definitely recommend waiting for AMD's new CPUs to release July 7th. they have more cores and more threads than Intel's offerings at the same price point and they are supposed to surpass Intel in performance across the board.
That AIO liquid cooler will fit in the case without issue. Are you going to be overclocking? If you're running at stock speeds, the stock cooler included will be more than enough. Thermal paste is included with either of these options so you don't need to buy it.
Whether you want a high end GPU is completely up to you. I always say get the best you can afford.
Your docking station will work, but you might lose some performance if you plug your monitor into the docking station while your gaming.
The only thing I might recommend is waiting a few days until July 7th when AMD will be releasing their new Ryzen CPUs which are supposed to surpass even Intel's offerings right now. I would do a bit of research there and see if it would be worth waiting in your case.
Very interesting, thanks for sharing!
4 cores can handle all of that? Is the Quadro doing most of the heavy lifting? I've never seen an i3 in a server like this before. Very cool build.
Oh yeah, no problem at all. The 2080Ti is the most powerful gaming graphics card out there right now. And the 9900K is also the best gaming CPU out at the moment. You can't really get a better combo.
Whoops, yes. July 7th.
Looks good, but I do have a few suggestions.
The 2700X is a great CPU, but AMD will also be releasing their new processors on July 7th so it would definitely be worth it to wait a week until then to see what they have to offer. NVIDIA will allegedly be doing the same towards the middle of July, but it's up to you if you wanted to wait or not.
The only other thing I would suggest is getting a bigger SSD. They're getting so cheap nowadays that I usually recommend getting a 1TB normal 2.5" SATA SSD for right around $80. The M.2 will be a bit faster, but in my opinion, having 4 times the storage might be worth it.
I kept the list very similar but I opted for the 2700 to leave room in the budget for faster memory and a better power supply. I also switched the SSD to a more reliable brand, in my experience.
Those are all high quality components, I see no issues. I would get a higher wattage power supply, though. I'd do at least a 750W, but preferably an 850W. You have some power hungry components.
The new Ryzen CPUs are also coming out on July 7th, so I might reccomend at least waiting until then. They're supposed to be comparable to Intel if not surpassing them by a fair bit.
Waiting until June 7th (when AMD releases their 3rd gen Ryzen chips) might not be a bad idea. If you really wanted to wait to see how NVIDIA super does, then you can.
If you don't want to wait, you could always get a nice X470 board with a cheaper CPU in there and then decide if you wanted to upgrade when Ryzen 3rd gen launches. Same with the GPU.
I love to see 4th gen i5s still going. Nice build, looks very cool.
You've given yourself a lot of room to upgrade, nice work!
Your B450 board should be compatible with 3rd gen Ryzen chips and 650W should be plenty to power a high end card. You have a lot of room in your case, too.
It's awesome to see X79 still in use. Nice build! That 4930K is still a great CPU.
I love specific purpose built rigs like this. Nice work!
If all you're doing is gaming, it shouldn't be too bad. Worst case scenario, you could grab a used 7700K and you'd for sure have no problems.
Looks pretty good! Just to let you know, new Ryzen Cpus will be coming out on July 7th.
I'd also look into getting a different brand SSD. I usually for for an ADATA, PNY, or TeamGroup when I'm looking for a cheaper SSD.
Keep in mind there aren't any prices out for AMD X570 motherboards for the 3600 yet so I chose a decent X470 one to roughly estimate the price.
You could use your monitor for this rig, but I would recommend upgrading. This machine is capable of more than just 1080p 60FPS. I'd get a 1080p 144hz panel or some kind of 1440p monitor to go along with this.
Everything looks good!
After having personal experience building in that case, I would reccomend something else considering the components you're putting in. They'll all fit, but it might be a little cramped and hot.
Take a look at this one: https://pcpartpicker.com/product/p8x2FT/nzxt-h500-black-atx-mid-tower-case-ca-h500b-b1
I agree, I added one to the list above.
This is what I would do:
That's a good idea!
The card AMD announced is going to be an equivalent to the RTX 2070, apparently. If you're planning on a 2080 Ti, there isn't going to be anything faster for a while longer.
Since you're on an older platform, you wouldn't be able to just throw a 9900K into your system. it wouldn't be compatible. The fastest CPU your motherboard can support is the i7-7700K, which you might have to buy used since they aren't made anymore. I see them on ebay for right around $300.
If you wanted something soon, I recommended the Ryzen 2600 combo because it will come out to right around $500 when all is said and done. You might be able to fit a Ryzen 7 in there, even. If you're willing to wait, I'd definitely recommend going with 3000 series Ryzen since it's so soon.
Another thing to consider is that Ryzen does not have integrated graphics, so you will not be able to run all of your monitors unless you got a different/additional graphics card.
I agree. Ryzen is an awesome platform, but you'd be better off going with a more workstation oriented chip like a Threadripper.
If you're willing to wait, it might be worth it to hold out until July 7th when AMD releases their new CPUs. The top end Ryzen 9 3900X is going to have 12 cores 24 threads for $499 which would be awesome for you at this price point and help you out with editing.
That all depends on how much you're willing to spend and if you want to keep the parts or resell them since they're brand new. There are some newer parts out right now that might be worth upgrading to but it all depends on your budget.
Here's an idea, at least. My monitor recommendation is going to depend on your budget and what games you're going to be playing:
