First build in 7 years - critique wanted

Hi all,

My current build is finally showing it's age. I upgraded it with a 980 Ti in 2015 which kept it going for a bit, but I think it's definitely time for a complete, brand new build.

I've done my research best I can but as I've been out of the game for a while so could just use some pointers. The build is as follows:

CPU: Intel - Core i9-9900K
CPU Cooler: Noctua - NH-U12A
Motherboard: Gigabyte - Z390 AORUS PRO WIFI
Memory: Corsair - Vengeance LPX 32 GB (2 x 16 GB) DDR4-3200
Storage: Samsung - 970 Evo Plus 1 TB
Video Card: Asus - GeForce RTX 2080 Ti 11 GB
Case: Fractal Design - Define C
Power Supply: EVGA - SuperNOVA P2 750W
Case Fan: 4x Noctua - NF-A12x25

The aim is for the build to last as long as possible, driving games at 1440p 165Hz. It'll also be used for content creation (hence the 9900K).

Thanks.

While the P2 is not bad its a bit old and there are better units out there such as the Focus Plus or the Prime Ultra
As for the NVME drive its not going to be any faster than a drive using AHCI for gaming

As for the GPU i feel like Asus cards are way overpriced and i would rather go with MSI or Gigabyte but your country might have different prices

But it will be faster as a scratch disk for content creation.

Possibly double the storage. 1T seems a lot until you decide to not uninstall your games due to saves and such. Also, what model of 2080Ti?

I'd go with cheap NVMe. Intel 660p is $100 a TB. I just acquired 2x 2tb out of 4 for my new array, they're wonderful. Games may not load much faster for x/y/z reasons, but large transfers, n other tasks are even snappier. When the cheapest reliable NVMe is the same price as = tier SATA SSD, i'd go NVMe.

and a newer, maybe slightly larger power supply.

i usually go evga on cards cuz of their US warranty center, but they're just as pricey as asus these days, if not more so.

Add me on Steam, same name
R.I.P. Zawarudo, may you OC angels' wings in heaven.
If something appears too good to be true, it probably is.

Hi,
Asus customer support is mainly why one would avoid asus entirely
I only buy asus with in store warranties to avoid any asus contact.

Is not Noctua NH-U12A weak for an i9-9900K?
