At 4K 60Hz, even the 200$ R5 3600 will work. AND, for 4K 60Hz you only need a single 2080 Ti.
I used 4K back in 2015 with just an i7 2700K @ 4.5GHz with 2X R9 290s. Of course i was not able to max any games. My bottleneck in most games was the 4GB VRAM.
By Built-in Benchmark Queen:
My 2.5 years old delidded 7980xe @ 4600mhz all core with 49ns memorylatency (4000c16 twekaed) is faster than 3950x max overclocked on water in every scenario. Pretty good for a ancient cpu
In gaming it has no chance vs my new 10900k @ 5400mhz and 4600c16 tweaked memory. ~35ns memorylatency.
