I have a $2,700 budget for my remaining items. I will be heavily gaming and doing music and video editing. I already ordered my monitor and an asus 1080ti graphics card. I want an Intel processor with an Asus motherboard. I am considering overclocking. Like to see what you guys come up with. Thank you

At that point, you could go i7 extreme/i9 or i7 8700k. The i9 would help a ton out with editing, but cost a fortune. The AMD threadripper is the cheaper alternative to the i9, and is a better bang for buck, even though it is not intel like you wanted.

Power supply is a bit overkill

It’s actually not. You need 2 8 pin EPS cables for threadripper, and it uses a lot of watts with a 1080 Ti.

it wont go near 1000w lol

The 1080 Ti is not in the list, if you err to add it you would be at a higher wattage then it says.

Yeah but its still overkill, an 850 watt would be ideal.

You should post a new topic, not reply to some else's topic.

Also, using your e-mail address as a username is a terrible idea (you're looking forward to receiving a ******** of spam if you do this often).
