Hello all - this has been a looong time coming but I have finally saved up enough money and I think I did enough research to know what kind of build I want for my first. Never the less, it's always good to get advice before pulling the trigger so here goes:
A few notes and questions:
RTX 2080 TI because there are a few games that I would love to have the pleasure of playing in 4K 60fps.
The i7-8700 is from a DELL I purchased last year specifically for gaming which I didn't do much of. I would like to purchase the air cooler because I'm using my 4K TV for a monitor which can only go to 60hz. From here there are 2 questions:
Should I purchase an unlocked CPU even though I'm using my TV that can only go to 60hz and what would be the benefit? If so, what is a good CPU liquid cooler to go with it.
If I the 8700 is just fine, would I NEED a liquid cooler or would the air cooler on the list suffice.
No RGB lights because the the PC will be out of sight.
Lastly, I wanted a motherboard with Wi-Fi that would last a while and it seems like this was as good as it could get but I might have missed some others that would compare. Please feel free to advise if anyone has any other suggestions.
