A SSD is in no way a must. You will need to overclock your CPU to the 4.6 / 4.8 area or as much as you can with your limited cooler.
It will fit so easy it will look dinky in that case.
You already made the main mistake of spending way to much on the case instead of getting the performance parts first.
Ya people should post first then buy. Not buy some parts then post.
A bit over.
The mATX board is going to look dinky in a mid tower case.
Restarts are usually the PSU.
Why 2 1440p monitors?
Really all you need should be good for high settings, ultra wide monitor for a increased field of view. The 2080ti is just not worth the 70% price increase for a 15% performance increase.
I did not check the fans you listed but more video card and less of everything else.
PCPartPicker Part List
unhook the drives, remove the video card, reset CMOS and try to boot into BIOS with the monitor hooked up to the motherboard.
8 bucks more and much better performance.
That is not worth 800 bucks and the memory you bought will not work with it.
It's made by CWT and is actually a good PSU.
With that case you really need a SFX power supply or the card almost sits on the PSU.
3 bucks over.
You need to format the drive and assign it a drive letter.
If I was switching to a M.2 I would do a fresh install although they are migration programs.
I believe the cooler will have to be mounted in the front of the case and then the card won't fit.
No 5V RGB connector on the board for the fans.
A mATX board in a mid tower case looks dinky.
Just a bit over you can add another drive when needed.
I would get this board.
Their never been a PC built without a bottleneck and never will be. A bottleneck is just the slowest part doing a certain task and can change to a different part using different programs or games.
Their almost no difference in in to 2 processors for gaming performance for the video cards their about a 15% difference.
So if you look at it in FPS about 0 in the processors and for the cards if you were getting 100 FPS with the 1660ti you could get 115 with the 2060 (all depending on the game of course)
The 2060 Super is not overkill for a 144hz monitor, it's also not having driver issues like the 5700 is.
You did see he is also using work programs, m.2 drive for the OS and programs, 1TB SSD for games and work space 3TB for storage. Not my fault people that don't use their PC for work think a 1TB drive is big enough. (I have 5 drives in my PC over 6TB of storage)
The motherboard will support any AM4 processors and their only going to release one more for AM4 so the upgrade argument is just dead air.
That Intel drive is not what to buy for a work and game PC it slows to a craw as it fills up.
Better overall build than yours for what he is using his PC for and right in budget.
With plenty of storage. 1502.
You need Windows and a adapter for one of the monitors.
2 monitors and Windows is close to 350 already.
The way it reads to me is he gets to the login screen and doesn't know the password.
The 2080 Super should put you way above 60. That is a very solid build.
that can handle 1440p resolution with high frame rates
I don't call 60 FPS high frame rates.
The 2 additional fans get mounted in the front , the original front fans get moved to the top.
I would think that is California not Canada since most use the abbreviation for their currency CAD.
With a few exceptions most of the holiday deals are no better than deals you can get throughout the year. Their usually some good deals on processors that sell out quick but most of the items are parts that are selling slow to help get them out of their stock.
I would not recommend buying a video card that has already failed one time although EVGA at least gives you a 1 year warranty but not worth a crap when you pay the shipping and are without a video card.
I would reconsider that answer, more pixels for the win. Get the 1440p but you will have to turn settings down to get the high FPS.
Double the SSD space so you can load your main games on it and keeps the extra 1TB storage.
Keeps the case you picked.
Upgrades to a good 1660 Super video card.
8 true cores should last a long time for a pure gaming PC.
I believe they do that to keep people from hacking a stolen LT.
I believe trying to help bypass a password is against the TOS of this site
Those chips don't have much overclocking room so you don't need a lot of cooling.
60 bucks over but you can sell your memory and video card.
25 Bucks more gets you some faster memory better SSD, better PSU, better motherboard, and a much better video card.
Swapped the to the smaller one and got a better board.
Yes I seen you were not buying both at the same time so deleted.
Their no answer some boards use dual band WIFI and some use cheap crap. Same thing buying a card.
In general the boards with good WIFI have the price juiced up and a lesser board with a decent card cost less.
Depending on the game you should see at least a 50% increase in FPS.
