Intel gaming build, need advice

Hi, its been a while but I am finally ready to build a high end gaming PC. Problem is I have been out of the "loop" on the tech so I would like some advice from you guys.

My goal is FPS gaming at at least 144hz 3440 x 1400 resolution, I want ray tracing and HDR.

I want a monitor 32 inches or greater with a curve.

Here are the prelim specs I have

Monitor ASUS ROG Swift PG35VQ

https://www.newegg.com/armor-titaniu...-992-_-Product

GPU ASUS ROG STRIX 2080 TI

https://www.newegg.com/asus-geforce-...82E16814126263

CPU Intel I9 9900K

https://www.newegg.com/core-i9-9th-g...82E16819117957

MOBO - Having trouble with this one

- What would be your recommendation for a Z390 MOBO to complement this set up ? Here are some considerations:

- ASUS ROG Maxumius X1 Code https://www.newegg.com/p/N82E16813119156 ( like the look of this board)

- I have had good success with AUSU mobos in the past. Any other ASUS mobos you would recommend ?

- Gigabyte Aorus Master - https://www.newegg.com/p/N82E16813145089

SSD - Ok been out to Lunch on M2 technology. Currently I have Samsung Evo SSD's in my rig but looks like I will need to go to M2 drives.
- What would your recommendation for M2 storage be ?

RAM - Again out of the loop on RAM

- looking for 64GB RAM - I wouldnt mid a little RGB as well

Options are

Gskill Trident
Corsair Vengance
others ?

I realize this is a lot of questions, I appreciate any help !!

Thanks for any input

Peace !

It seems that money is no object. The Ryzen 3950X is coming out later this month and could beat the 9900K in gaming (and certainly in productivity). I'd wait a couple weeks before deciding on final build if I was you.

Save money, go ryzen. It will barely make a difference in current games but it's likely ryzen will run next gen games better since they will target ryzen console CPUs. 3700x is my recommendation. The CPUs is cheaper and the mobo will be cheaper so you save twice.

Couldn't you get a ref 2080 ti at 1k and OC WC beyond it for the same or cheaper? Kind of a pain in the butt WCing though open loop vs aio or air. I'd tell you to get this but idk why they didn't use a bigger radiator... Very silly hybrid cards... They want to charge 2k for a simple 240 mm radiator.... They charge you $70 for a 2070 super 120mm hybrid aio card but an extra $300 for a 2080 ti aio, that looks exactly the same such a rip off.

I'd get this with a ref 2080 ti, use zip ties to make it fit if need be.

https://www.newegg.com/fractal-desig...-064-_-Product


Get 2 120 mm fans and point them to right and the left of the core. Spend that extra money on a 9900KS. Buy another 360mm aio for 9900ks $500. but that's just me, mounting won't be fun

You probably don't want that kind of hassle though ^^

Thanks I currently have an AMD set up and I agree the new Ryzen CPU's are very impressive. Truth be told I am on the fence about AMD vs Ryzen and was specing both build types out. Honesty the only components I am sold on at this point are the GPU and the monitor.

As Gunderman456 mentioned I should prolly wait to see wha the next Ryzen chip has to offer since the release date is so close.

Regarding a watercooling set up, I have done that in the past a few times. I have been drooling over the Lian Li 011 Dynamic XL, beautiful case. I had considered just getting an air cooled set up in my current case going and at some point getting the Lian Li case and switching to water.

Regarding the PSU, I have a EVGA 1000 watt supernova that has been great its currently running my 980 TI classified. My plan if I update my case was to use the same PSU and get a set of custom cables for "looks".

Hydroplane, the VRM's on the Aorus board are very nice, I am a bit of an ASUS fan from past experience but it seems they have had some controversy regarding the quality of the VRM's and voltage controller on their current boards.

Any comments regarding M2 storage or RAM options ?

Thanks again for all the comments.

If you want an M.2 NVME SSD dont bother with Samsung they are overpriced and something like a Corsair Force MP510 or a PNY XLR8 is way cheaper and almost as good

For memory I would purchase 64GB G.SKILL RGB 3200 14-14-14-34 https://www.gskill.com/product/165/1...5V64GB-(4x16GB) For plug play XMP profile. There will be less luck with stability using memory speeds past 3200 speed with 64GB.

Was taking a look at the upcoming Ryzen chip, pretty impressive. What MOBO would you all pair with that chip ?

How about the ASUS AM4 ROG X570 Crosshair VIII Hero
