Changed the cooler to a quieter and cheaper one. I also changed the RAM to a much faster kit as Ryzen scales well with clockspeed. For the GPU I went for the 2080, because it was in your budget and you’ll get Anthem and Battlefield 5 with the purchase.

That PC looks like it could survive a nuclear bomb.

Your eyes notice a HUGE difference between 60 and 144hz. 144 and 240 not so much, but that depends on the person just with good vs excellent wine. Also, the RTX 2060 will certainly not get you more than 60hz on modern titles, except for maybe Fortnite or PUBG at low settings.

Some additional advice: if the leaks are true, then DO NOT go for the 2060 and buy the new Navi GPUs from AMD. They will have much superior performance. Granted, they won’t have ray tracing, but the 2060 won’t handle ray tracing at low or high with good frame rates.

I totally forgot about the PSU... Originally I wanted to go for crossfire Vega. And I’m also gonna stick with the Royal RAM

Definitely go for higher resolution if you’re using it for work.

Here is what I have come up with:

For the memory I wasn’t sure what kind of DL you would be doing, so I went for 32gb. As far as I can tell this build lines up perfectly with the article you provided.

This is an RGB monster. You might wanna dial down on that monitor though, because there are much cheaper ones that have almost no difference.

For me there is a HUGE difference between 1080p@60hz and 4k@144hz. I would never settle for less :P

It's a crime to pair Ryzen with 2400Mhz memory :P

I’ve chosen the X470 to get one of the third to fourth gen Ryzen CPUs once they come out.

Changed from Samsung to WD SSDs as they are cheaper and higher quality. Also made some changes here and there to have a more overclockable machine. I included the 2080ti because it still fit in your budget and is way more suited for your needs. It has more VRAM which for example comes in handy for GPU rendering. It is even more powerful than the Titan V.

What do you use the 1070ti for? Considering buying one.

Go for dual 8 GB memory. With that CPU something about 3000hz should be perfect.

It is mainly a hobby and some freelancing from time to time. However, I’m still in school, so I’m on a tight budget. I was going for a high end monitor, but feel free to exceed my budget of 1000€ if you think the performance is worth it.
