My first build ever
Where is the 1080ti?
Seems the OP listed the wrong one. I believe op has the gigabyte 1080ti...
Quite a build for a first one... But it does looks nice. Some cables are standing out, but who am i to judge... My first build looked like someone threw a spaghetti bowl on motherboard.
not bad, just move the gpu up to the top slot.
a few cable ties can help with the cable management.
The cpu cooler is installed wrong D:
i dont get it, u've spent more than 2k for this build, but....
lets just quote 1 of the commentator in a Verge PC build parody:
'Your cable management look like a spaghetti'.
Has the original poster noticed how many comments he's gotten? xD
I don't know for a first build, it isn't to bad but you need to work or your wire management more and for the next build more of a theme. and maybe a go AMD next time.
Lol this anti-brand boycotting ****. i9 9900k is just as good as it can be, far better than 7 2700x in terms of gaming performance and close to it in workstation purposes without stepping into threadripper border which alone doesn't makes sense to be used for gaming tasks. Ryzen would play out their role superiorly here if Ryzen 9 3800/3850x was out, then yeah, for less the cost and similar performance such CPU could be theoretically better than i9 9900k
its not even just that though if you want to upgrade with ryzen its so easy with them keeping the am4 socket
I wasn't talking about upgradability, but performance in general. He said 'go AMD next time' like he didn't know the core difference between Intel CPUs and Ryzen CPUs. My point was if OP can afford then i9 9900k is a great choice and 7 2700x would just be a slight downgrade for gaming performance opposed to workflow results where Ryzens out-perform Intel CPUs (except for Xeons and other high core quantity CPUs). And another CPU that "could" potentially match i9-9900k general performance in gaming is either 7 3700x or 9 3800x for the lower price (even though there will be more restriction related to optimization and graphics card or other hardware rather than CPU alone. Same applies to Intel, use older board and update compatibility BIOS.
Edit: unless you're talking about performance for value upgrade then yeah, Ryzens are more viable for their accessibility.
that is quite a valid point and i dont think op would have waited for that 7/7 rumored release date on next gen ryzen
