Hi all,

I bought a computer from this site, I wanna say in 2013-14 and it is still running nicely, although things are getting pretty dated now.  Though, I think it is time for me to upgrade.  My current system has 16gb or ram, a 225gb SSD along with a 1tb mechanical drive.  i7 cpu and 1080ti gpu.

My primary use is gaming, although I do art related stuff (mainly with adobe creative cloud) as well

I know I want to get a system with a much bigger SSD - I'm going all out with 2 TB WD Black SN750. 
I'll probably also get a 4 or 6tb mechanical as a secondary drive for extra storage.

I'll update to an i9 processor, and I'll prob get 32gb or ram or more, even though it's probably not necessary.  I just want to future proof myself.

However, I do have a 1080 ti and the only card available currently is 2080 super which doesnt seem to be that much better?  I have no idea if 3080s will be available when they release... they be impossible to get.  So I guess I'm wondering if the 2080 super is actually a big upgrade from my 1080 ti?

Some games I play are Overwatch, Wow, Witcher 3, Monster Hunter World. Also plan on getting Cyberpunk in November, Overwatch 2 eventually, Diablo 4 eventually,  etc.

My budget is pretty loose.  I'd be willing to go up to $4,000 if it's actually worth doing.

Any advice or help at all would be awesome, since I was planning on ordering this month some time so I'd have it in time for Shadowlands release.

Thanks very much.
