Description

I'm quite happy with the end result, besides the fact that I definitely went over my original budget. Having come from pre-built PC's and a laptop directly before this, my fps has never been smoother and I'm finally able to enjoy a lot of my favorite games on better settings.

EDIT: bought new PSU

Your PC looks very good! There were some ways you could save some money though. a Ryzen 2600 or i5 8400/8600K could have done a similar job to the 8700k. You could also go for a cheaper air cooler for those chips. A 256gb ssd and a 2tb hard drive would have done better. Other than that this isn't too bad.

Hello, I am loking at a very similar build with a GTX 1080 paired with a i5 8400/8600 for 1080p gaming. Do you think the 1080 is a good buy for 1080p gaming? How are the framerates, above all in those AAA titles? Im a bit tight on a budget, maybe going for a 1070 would be better? Love your build, cheers! Oh, and thanks for your answer :)

It will work very good :) framerates are 60fps+ in every game but ofc it depends about what settings you play. If you're tight on budget you should wait that 1080TI price goes down and buy it instead of 1080. Dont buy 1070.
