Hi everyone, thanks for stopping by and taking a look at my post. You guys helped me before with my first PC build last year and hope to get your help this year as well. I'm looking to get a GTX 1080 build, to play games on the highest settings, on a 1080p 144 hz gsync monitor. I'm not looking to over clock or have crazy RGB. My budget is around $1500. (The lower the price, the better)
Here are my questions: 1- should I stick with this air cooler or get a liquid cooler? I never messed around with liquid coolers before, so I don't know. Any other thoughts on cooling in general is appreciated. 2- CPU, should I stick with ryzen or Intel i7 8700k? 3- PSU, I want a modular PSU. 600 W or 650 W? 4- Case fans, are these good? I want best the cooling possible. 5- RAM, 3000 or 3200 Mhz? 6- Graphics card, GTX 1080 or 1080 TI? 7- MB, thoughts on the motherboard?
