Well first off if you are serious you can shave off over $3,000.00 and take a small vacation with it. Such overkill. Asking to "UPGRADE" that's funny.

Unless your doing scientific work.

Ten core cpu overkill, 32GB's of RAM overkill, sound card a waste, MOBO has integrated HD sound, 2080 water cooled GPU overkill.

At this point I'm not wasting my time making a selection for solid build, since you have so much cash to burn.
Remember valor, honor, independence, family & clan; I do whenever I hear the ceol mor, the "great music" of the Highland bagpipe. I swear upon the holy iron of my dirk that I will not forget.

"At this point I'm not wasting my time making a selection for solid build, since you have so much cash to burn."

So why waste your time even replying? i was on the phone with cyber power and these were the specs the guy recommended. I questioned it, came here to look answers since i dont know hardware and i get some guy that doesnt want to "waste" his time being a douche.. claiming i have cash to burn.. no one has cash to BURN ever. this is an investment. No rich, poor, wealthy would ever want to BURN cash. I clearly dont know hardware this is why im asking the community. i wouldnt want to spend money on something thats not needed.
if you have nothing good to say, just dont say it. 

i was told by cyberpower that an i9 ten core was the best for gaming, and the 2080 ti was the best GPU so thats what i mainly went for.

Didnt know MOBO had sound card otherwise i wouldnt have put it... 

If anyone else is reading this. i would appreciate it if you could help me out, what to remove, what i can save money on, what i dont need etc..

i do want the best GPU for gaming/streaming available , i will be rendering videos for YouTube as well , and i want it liquid cooled. 

Thanks in advance.

I would recommend getting much bigger SSD, the one you have right now will be consumed by 3-4 games. Get at least 2TB nVME SSD (Intel or WD brand) and never get anything Samsung.

I am really not sure about your fan choice this FAN: Thermaltake Custom PETG Hard-Tube Water Cooling can fit really nicely into the case but I am not sure if it's gonna perform any better than CORSAIR HYDRO Series H150i 360 which is much safer option and may work better/ maybe do more research on this.

This is an incredibly expensive build - the guy who commented (gan1957) was probably trying to say that you could have gotten a similar build for a lot less money - but that's always the case when you are buying a PC. Each increment costs more and more, so it's your choice. People gladly drop $10-$30k on a Rolex watch.

Also, get ready to inspect the unit upon arrival - they forgot to connect front the extra ports on mine, missing 3 fans, motherboard is sold under Asrock brand but without support etc/ If anything is wrong, be prepare to wait for weeks or maybe over a month for them to ship it back to you.

If this is too much hassle, then rethink your decision to buy here and go for an OEM brand - you can get a similar system for around $4700

Now, OEM may have issues too, offers less customization but it would probably be properly tested and supported.

People who "seem" to be serious, I go beyond and point out realistic options. Your post did not request "savings, can I spend less, etc." Had you been realistic in your follow up post and explained "by the way, yes I would like to save some cash, instead of throwing away the price of a small car, I would have been more than happy to suggest a solid build.

But since you seem to be childish and are great at throwing insults,,,,,,,,,,,,,, Na,,,,,,,,,,,, maybe another member who wishes to risk being called names wants to take the time. Have fun. Hopefully you are grown up enough you don't that language at work or with others. Give yourself a serious attitude adjustment

Evidently you did no research period, with the "thousands of other post myself and other members have made. You can well see there are "no builds" posted for anything hear what you did. $2,000.00 of course. We see several "people" just come on and throw together the most expensive system possible just for grins with no real intent to purchase. Educate yourself, wealthy do throw cash around.

Had you taken the time to really read other builds, response, questions. You post a projected budget, what the system is for and ask the membership.


Have fun, good luck, may the force and money tree be with you. Great system by the way go ahead and buy two of them.

"and never get anything Samsung."

Yeah, because that makes sense. Don't buy the 4th fastest SSD on the market opt for the much slower one that is ranked at #35 instead. Meanwhile, the guy who bought the 970 EVO Pro and has a i3 8350K now has a faster desktop than the guy you counseled to buy the WD Black with his i9 9900X. And he saved a ton of money over the price of a i9 9900X too. I've got two Samsung drives and they're great drives. Might buy a third. And no he does not need bigger SSD either. You're not going to load up your games if you got a ton of them on an SSD anyway. Your "be consumed by 3-4 games" is also a complete exaggeration. That 512 GB SSD will hold well over 10 of today's games. Think you need to work on your math. You've developed a solid reputation for not doing your homework first here. Don't think you should not be advising anybody on anything until you learn to do your homework first.

 @Notanymore, Yep pointed out to good old brkicz the error of the Samsung comment, even provided links. Conveniently he either didn't read or just flat ignored.

Everyone makes mistakes but look, listen & learn. I seriously dislike it when someone continuously misleads people.

Yeah, that's a peeve of mine too. Especially when you consider people sink their hard earned money into these systems. These are their dream machines. Feels like Christmas when your machine finally arrives and it never gets old...LOL! If someone is going to comment don't send them entirely in the wrong direction. That's just irresponsible. Good call Gan.
