Intel 10th Gen upgrade?
The upgrade bug has infected me, since its been a few years since I built a rig.
My 5930K hits about 60%-65% Utilization and my Ram is pretty much tapped out at 13GB when gaming. My PSU is from 2010 and I generally get 70-80 FPS in games at Ultra on 3440x1440. Major IPC improvements have been made. Current rig is in Sig.
Goal: Drive my Acer X34P so I can utilize that 120FPS refresh rate. Also will be doing Valve Index at some point. I run an Arch-Linux VM too.
Gigabyte Aorus X299X Gaming Master or Asus Rampage Equivalent
Second GPU for 2080FE NVlink
2x 970 Pro M.2 512GB in Raid 0
BeQuiet! Dark Power Pro 1200 or keep my Corsair AX1200(from 2010 modified with SilentWings 3 fan) and buy new cables?
Soundblaster AE9 (This is a pretty nice Soundcard, better than a USB DAC)
Intel Optane 900P (Speed up my Mechanical Drives)
32GB(4x8GB) DDR4 4400MHZ
What do y'all think? Budget is a few grand to spend or save. As you can see I plan to utilize those PCIe Lanes. Those are just thoughts, I am open to suggestions. My goal is above.
