First RGB build. NZXT H500 + RTX 2080

by vkvkvvk

Description

Initially all I wanted was to upgrade my GTX 1080 to RTX 2080, So I could transfer my GTX 1080 to my theater room's PC to use with occulus rift. Previous build was using 6700 in a Phanteks - Evolv ITX Tempered case. I did not realize that the Zotac GTX 2080 was taking up 3 slots. I ended up overhauling my setup since I had to change the case.

Beast of a pc, looks great. The graphics card seems overkill in my opinion and the liquid cooling is only their for looks. If you didnt do RGB you could of saved 100 or so bucks along with a cheaper card. At the moment not many games use the geforce rtx 2080 ti making it a bit useless for a few years until games become more powerful and powerful graphic cards cheaper. I would have personally gone for the ryzen 7 2700x threadripper, as its cheaper price but relativly same perfomance. Overall great build

2080 ti is not overkill because he's using 55" 4k tv

Judging by your description, you've clearly don't know many things like the core differences between AIO and air cooler, besides threadrippers are workstation CPUs. You can game alright on them, but purely underutilized for gaming tasks as their primary serve are meant for enormous workflow and breaking overclocking records in competitions. While I do agree 2080Ti is a bottlenecking waste under 4K gaming instead of acquiring unlocked CPU, it also has the power of Titan RTX who should last him for a while.

Thanks -^ , My pc is also hooked up to a 4K 55inch tv. Some games were struggling in 4K. There was a promotion giving free battlefield v and anthem. I had a $100 voucher for minimum spending of $1000. So I thought why not get one haha.
