Thank you for elaborating. I'm happy it's working out for you. Best regards.
Leaving your PC on the floor drastically decreases its lifespan due to a massive increase in dust intake. This clogs your cooling components- hurting temperatures, which ends up hurting your components clockspeeds.
All in all, if you keep your PC on the floor, expect inferior performance and higher temperatures. If you keep your PC on top of your desk, and clean it regularly, expect superior performance and lower temperatures keeping you eligible for overclocking.
I don't even know what I said that got deleted lol.
You could've used a sharpie to black out the side of the GPU's PCB. Most likely too late, but an excellent tip for future builds if you value it.
Nice. Very unique.
The i9-9900K and ultrawide combination is for those who don't care about feeble monetary struggles and budget balancing. It's for those looking to fulfill their wildest fantasies in the greatest 1% of the PC master race. The i9-9900K will easily strike 5 GHz with meek cooling, something AMD CPUs can only imagine hitting with liquid nitrogen. Ultrawide monitors provide such a massive competitive advantage they've even been banned from Overwatch (along with a handful of other outdated titles). REGARDLESS, your grotesque interpretation of Ardika's financial state is frankly disgusting. This is a man who's invested in an EVGA FTW 3 Ultra card! He's not some lowly peasant solely capable of lowly standardized gaming. He has the highest standards open to him, he has the very fundamentals of American patriotism through our founding father's vision of the American dream. He is the 1% capitalism has raised to the tip of the spear in our countries zeitgeist.
Using the AW3418DW box as a coffee table in the first photo lol. It is quite the mammoth box.
If you were to upgrade to an i9-9900K, you could comfortably jump up to an ultrawide monitor like the Alienware AW3418DW. A 3440x1440p 120Hz G-Sync ultrawide monitor that can easily be found for equal to or less than $700.
What type of exact performance are you seeing with the i9-9900K and 2080 TI? I have a similar build and am waiting for the 2080 TI in the mail. I too have an AW3418DW, and am wondering the FPS you're achieving in AAA titles.
Great build, great photos, and phenomenal description. Love the word choice, and conciseness.
The answer is: they don't. The description on this post doesn't illustrate the depths of this man's mind. Years of fury and indignation led to the victory of the thought he should purchase a new PC. The thousands of dollars equate to the value he puts on the use case of his PC. In this instance, World260 values what would appear to be gaming and data management.
Corsair Corsair, Corsair. Corsair Corsair Corsair Corsair Corsair. Corsair! Corsair Corsair Corsair Corsair. Corsair Corsair Corsair - Corsair?
But Corsair exists.
What's your name? "Corsair Corsair Corsair".
Nice. Love the CPU.
Those lights seriously reveal the amount of dust, debris, and cable quantity surrounding your build.
Great work. We have somewhat similar builds.
Are you planning on upgrading the RTX 2060 SUPER in order to not bottleneck your 9900K?
Does the distinctly green GEFORCE RTX logo bother you?
And the Vizio monitor...
Nice build. Fun RGB. :)
The i5 may be a bottleneck for the RTX 2080 TI. Are you planning on upgrading?
No, it's a past build.
Damn. Hope things get better for you.
Why not a liquid cooler? Are you planning on fixing that cable management too?
I love that GPU.
You're happy with that cable management?
I sure hope so.
Too bad it wasn't your stepsister. ;)
The ghetto build
I got a half decent one for about $3,000.
RGB looks way too bright for one to concentrate on the screen.
A lot of cut corners here. Your budget was wasted on the case and PSU. Should've bought a quality GPU, nice cooler, and some custom GPU pro cables from CableMods.
The case could be replaced with the NZXT H500 ($70)
And a 750W PSU ($89)
Cooler: I'd go for an AIO. Either NZXT Kraken or Corsair Platinum RGB. ($150)
CableMods Pro cables with pro combs are overpriced, but worth it. ($60-$100)
There is no RGB. All the lights are turned off.
I turned it off because the LED's look super cheap, and a few of them are actually burned out making this really ghetto looking AIO. Therefore, as the photo suggests, the build is all black, except for the green glow of the Geforce RTX logo. The AIO is simply a black mirror.
Corsair or Gigabyte are the brands to go for when searching for M.2 NVME Gen 4 SSD's.
9700K is great, I dislike my NZXT Kraken X62, the lights don't meet the hype, thermal paste is fine, Asus has good motherboard bios, the RAM is popular, HDD are for the weak, and so is that SATA SSD. Go big and buy at least one M.2 NVME Gen 4 SSD: super reliable, and super fast. Speaking of super, the 2080 SUPER looks great. H500i is unnecessary, buy the plain H500. 750W PSU is fine, and I'd personally recommend Windows 10 Pro for more options. And don't buy it from Microsoft. Find a super cheap option.

Don't spend more money than you really need to. Prioritize quality over raw performance. For example, buy the most expensive RTX 2080 SUPER rather than the least expensive 2080 TI.
Nice build. Would be nice if you added more photos of the entire setup. (For example, showing the monitor, desk, chair, and peripherals all in one or several new photos.)
Yeah, I'm the type of guy that really researches products before buying. I knew the exact pattern I wanted before I even had it, but this was my first real build, and I didn't realize the lights were defective because I had no experience. The return policy is years old now. I'm fine with my current all black theme with just a little smidge of green from the "GEFORCE RTX" logo.
Great build, love the theme. My Kraken X62's lights don't look as nice as yours. :( I usually end up keeping them off because of it.
