2080 is the newer card. 1080Ti roughly equates to 2080, with the 2080 Ti even more powerful. The 1080/2070 would perfectly suffice for 1080p though, but at $3200 you have room to upgrade to 1440p/144hz

Both running on open source drivers RX 580 beats 2080 Ti on linux, unless you install nvidia's weird proprietary driver that somehow never installs right because it integrates itself into the linux kernel. Either way, my point was that some of the moves AMD is making is paying off for their consumers. Vega 64 is a more expensive and more powerful 2060, just under 2070 territory, and Radeon VII provides a decent competition for the 2080 if you play 4k games which eat up VRAM. At the very minimum they will hopefully spark competition with nvidia and drive prices down.

Let’s also not forget their drivers are open source. That’s a huge deal, and nvidia drivers are a pain in the *** to install on Linux.

If putting aside performance/price definitely AMD, they are a more consumer sided company, don’t lie about their performance, and also only force motherboard upgrades when absolutely necessary.

That’s the individual size of the transistor, by making CPUs better we just shrink them and add more essentially.

The refresh rate of a monitor determines how many FPS you are capable of visibly seeing basically. If you are getting 135 FPS in a game with a 60 hz monitor, you will only experience 60 fps. I would personally recomend 1440p 144 hz, it's the sweet spot in resolution and FPS. 240 hz will require a hefty CPU to push 240 FPS, and 4k will require an expensive GPU. You allready have a 1070, which is a pretty decent card, and would do well on 1440p, where a 2600x or better 9600k would make a great combo, with a GPU upgrade likely due in a generation or so.

Oh no, that's what I thought also. The difference is very perceivable in motion blur. I have a 240hz monitor and can tell visibly when it jumps down to 180.

4k gaming at 60 FPS will take a hefty GPU and require compromises on settings. At a minimum I would get at least an RTX 2060, if you wanted to play on high/ultra settings a 2070 or 2080 might be in need. Also, clock speed is not an accurate measure of performance in CPUs, a 2600 and 8700k both locked onto the exact same speeds will perform differently, (intel generally performs better per Ghz at the cost of higher prices and less cores/threads) 4k is not incredibly CPU intensive, a 2600x would be fine. A faster CPU becomes more important when you start hitting 140+ FPS and intel's single thread speeds start to shine.

If you are just trying to get 1080p 60 FPS and possibly stream a little the CPU is overkill, you can easily swap for a Ryzen 5 2600. However if you are planning on investing in a 144 hz monitor then it might be worth it.

In reality clock speed is irrelevant for gaming at 60 FPS. Good CPU choices in the mid range include the i5 8400 and Ryzen 5 2600, the 2600 has more threads and is cheaper but flighty slower single core speeds, which again would only really matter if you were doing 144 FPS. It’s a good idea to have 6 cores in a modern machine, as it’s pretty common and game engines will soon start scaling or more cores. GPU wise I’m assuming your doing 1080p 60, so an RX 580/590 would be the best value card to push 60 FPS in 1080p.

A lot of these manufacturers invested in Ryzen for the hype expecting minimal performance so there is a lack of good low end b350 boards with few exceptions. It’s much better with b450, however Asus is still not really that great.

The TUF boards aren't really that good also, they overheat to 140 degrees Celsius under load from a 2700x, absolutely unacceptable. Even a 6 core 2600 or 2600x is too much load for the garbage they have under those heatsinks.

Unless you are planning on upgrading to top tier components a custom loop is not worth it, especially on current Ryzen. (we have no clue of third gen though) It would be better to upgrade your GPU to an RTX 2060/used GTX 1080 or for cooling get a solid heatsink like dark rock pro 4 or scythe Mugen 5 rev B. But if you have to go custom loop your best value will lie in the EK A240, as it provides expansion to a GPU block, at the cost of being aluminum and having very small compatibility outside of the EK fluid gaming parts.

I was just hoping to help. But regardless, my list would be:

Rocket league can be fun, pretty much soccer but with cars.

Forza, Motorsport 7 and Horizon 4 are great games if you like cars and driving as well.

CS:GO Great game, classic FPS that requires tons of skill and practice however is lots of fun. it's M

Minecraft is always a classic as well, never gets boring and is loads of fun with always stuff to do.

Subnautica is a another good survival game, also easy to dump tons of hours into.

Overwatch is a decent FPS however the lower rank groups, particularly bronze on PC can be toxic.

Apex Legends is a newer battle royale however is supposedly good, although on Origin instead of Steam.

Possibly fortnite if you can get past it's glaring flaws, or assuming OP is in the younger age group where fortnite is accepted and played a lot. Most serious gamers won't play it though, it feels impossible to kill enemies and you have massive fights where you get many good headshots and loose either way to a few lucky shots and a guy that built a massive fort. Either way, still might be enjoyable.

I would also like to add that there are much better lists to be purchased in that price range, you could easily fit a 2060 or even 2070.

As a general rule of thumb CPU speeds decide the FPS you will get without bottleneck and GPU decides resolution you can get without bottleneck. A 2080 Ti and i3 8100 will hardly be able to do 1080p 100 hz, however a 9900k and 1050 Ti would never be able to do 4k 60. Maybe swap the 1050 Ti for 1070 and both of those builds could easily push the opposite monitor.

Enough room to do a ghetto custom loop, (everything is ultrathin these days!) however with modern hardware (R7 2700x, Radeon VII/2080) and a beastly 4k 144hz screen.

This would be miles better. That build maybe 720p low-medium settings, this build 60 fps 1080p medium-high settings.

I would personally go for a faster i9, even the 9900k would outperform threadripper in loads under 8 cores. Also Titan RTX in SLI would be even faster. Maybe also consider a custom loop?

The b450 tomahawk is actually a great mid level board, perfect for minor-moderate overclocks. Don't go pushing 1.4 volts or god forbid 1.45+ on it though or as I learned the hard way it will crap out taking down the CPU with it.

Both inte and ryzen have their advantages. If you are looking for a long term able to support many future upgrades, superb value, and strong multithreaded performance, Ryzen is the better option. Intel has faster single core speeds, however is more expensive, has less value, will require future motherboard replacements, but at the advantage of being better at high refresh rate gaming. In your scenario, you will be more GPU limited, so I swapped the better CPU for the better GPU.

Right direction for sure, could use optimizing.

  • Corsair TXM is a decent PSU however it may be worth the extra money for an EVGA G3

  • Hyper 212 evo is a mediocre CPU cooler on today’s standards, the cryorig H7, or dark rock pro 4 would be better for overclocking.

-good choice on a GPU, SSD, and HDD

Here is a Ryzen build, sacrificing single thread performance for raw GPU power in the 2070. The 2600x can boost to similar speeds as the 9600k in multithreaded performance, at the cost of slightly slower single thread.
