I always go for G.Skill, just because I know they tend to work reliably and have multiple friends who use em.

That's just my thoughts tho

Check the case specs and what card sizes it supports and the space between items. Then check if you have tall or short RAM. From there determine if you have the needed clearance

As far as I can tell, this should run most popular games above 60 fps with max detail, according to GPU benchmarks. CPU shouldn't bottleneck from what I know.

Made a more uniform layout with Corsair

updated the storage system for a more useful 1 TB SSD for boot files and 6 TB of mass storage

Though, sacrifice storage and go a bit over budget and you kill game with a 2080ti. Or look for a used 1080ti IMO

Let's go to intel's now shall we?

Enthusiast we see an i5 9600k. The i5 has 6 cores and 6 threads, no SMT. Excellent we see the same chip, no difference. The "k" stands in as a boosted chip that is unlocked, meaning you can OC if need be.

Excellent comes with an AIO (all in one) liquid cooler. This is a closed loop system that cools the chip via a radiator and fan. The enthusiast comes with a be quiet! air cooler, a reputable brand.

Same GPU differences as the AMD, 2070 vs 2080

Let's compare the AMD excellent and enthusiast builds.

The ryzen 5x is a generally faster CPU, but has two less cores and 4 less threads.

(A thread is a single line of commands that are getting processed, each application has at least one thread, most have multiples. A core is the physical hardware that works on the thread. In general a processor can only work on one thread per core, CPUs with hyper threading can work on up to two threads per core.

For processors with hyper threading, there are extra registers and execution units in the core so it can store the state of two threads and work on them both, normally to change threads you have to empty the registers into the cache, write that back to the main memory, then load up the cache with the new values and load up the registers, context switches hurt performance significantly.

Core = hardware

Thread = how the hardware is supplied with information. Think of it as the 'road' by which the information gets into the CPU core.

Some processors, like the i7-2600K, have hyper-threading. This is where each core can take 2 threads. In layman's terms, although the CPU has 4 physical cores, it allows the CPU to act as if it had 8 cores. Generally only useful for high-intensity programmes that do modelling or video-editing work.)

So while slightly less value, it does have more multi threading ability. Moving along we have the 2070 vs 2080. The 80 enjoys a 13% overall increase according to gpu benchmarks, making it a more capable machine for running games. Paired with more cores and threads, it should alleviate stress in high impact games, however, single core ability is generally more beneficial (hence why intel is considered a better gamer)

Overall, the enthusiast enjoys minimal upgrade to the excellent build. The only difference are the CPU and CPU being "one step up", though comparing an x model CPU to a non x is bad taste

I approve of this dedicated server build. If you're willing to go even more above budget, I'd recommend a titanium PSU just for peace of mind. Other than that, this is a server beauty

12.59 is quite impressive. In grade 8 without spikes I was running 11.4 but that was with insane amounts of training (aka playing football and soccer literally everyday).

I imagine if you practice you could quite that down a bit. I'd recommend going with a cheaper brand (I'm unsure of what that would be ATM) in order to get used to the transition and ensure you like them. From there, I'd recommend feeling the shoes in person and seeing what fits you the best. You can get the most advanced shoes on the planet but if they don't fit you right they'll only slow you down

I'd recommend the AMD build with 3200 RAM if you can get it, they tend to run better with higher frequency memory, though 3000 should be fine

Oh this is test. You already knew that, lol. Probs just run it up higher if need be

It's super expensive, as the world has adopted fair trade principles and pays workers fairly. However, due to reforestation and rehabilitation of animals cocoa produvtion rises lowering costs a bit, so overall raise is mitigated. Nestle falls apart due to its corrupt practices being exposed.

Please for the love of God don't get 2400 MHz RAM with an AMD build. Go to 3200. Cut to a minimal SSD M.2 for boot files and then a large SSD. CPU cooler isn't fully necessary, but your call. Don't get a Toshiba, go for a Seagate or WD. 60 Hz monitor for a 1080ti build?

Way under budget for now. This can be changed if needed. The video card meets and exceeds your requirements. Processor is 8 cores and unlocked for your convenience. Included a decent looking case with lots of space. Case fans added for better airflow (120's for intakes, 140 for exhaust. Extra 120's for intake/exhaust on top/back, wherever you feel its needed). 64 GB of RAM at a wee bit slower, but if needed it can be pushed to 3000/3200 pushed it up to 3200 for your convenience. SSD for whatever files you need immediately, and large file storage on the HDD.

Hopefully better then now and not descended into the chaos politicians seem hell bent on pushing us all towards.

That's a tough one. I love politics and inter relations, but ****'s getting real these days. US is way too interested in pulling an Iraq in Iran, but it won't work. And the whole Russia expansion/Chinese territories consolidation is wreaking havoc, especially when you consider NK's antics.... Craziness.
