    Default New build, need input

    Hey guys.

    My old system still works, but my video card suxorz (Titan X maxwell). I have had 6 of then through RMA, and they have never worked right.
    My buddy just came up and brought his 1080TI system with him. We put that in my machine, and it went along just fine, almost repeating what game fps he had (he has an I7 8700k though, and didnt get as many 'drops' in fps as I did).

    I just got some cash, enough to either buy a completely new system, with like a new I7 that can do lots more load wise than my 5930k can. OR, I can just get 2 1080TI video cards and try to limp along with this machine until it quits.

    So, if you had a lot of cash, what system would you build right now?
    What components would you use? (I will NEVER use evga again, they suck now, like DFI did right before they went out of bussiness).
    What mobo?
    What memory?
    What cpu? (I dont need an I9 I dont think, lol).

    I have been out of the game a LONG time, and just dont know whats good anymore, except that evga sux bad.


    So, give this thread a holler!

    You probably will not get much of a response anymore. Site has been dead for a while.

    I am not going to be much help as my system is even older than yours! I am still running an i7-4820K with a GTX-760!

    for me to replace this system because it is an LGA-2011 Mobo and 32GB of memory would be expensive! Also, I have not kept up with new Tech for a while.

    Well, I just found a pre-built system:
    I7 8700k (3.7GHZ Boost to 4.7GHZ) (4.5GHZ is perfect for gaming)
    2080 TI 11GB
    32GB memory (this is a MUST)
    And some other not so interesting stuff, with a mobo that only has 1 x16 3.0 slot. So, if that slot goes out, I am boned, since everything else is x4 and x1 slots.
    Its only $2700.00

    Heh, pulled the trigger on this before it ran out (ALL the 2080 systems and cards are now gone from everywhere, and this was the only way I was going to be able to get a 2080 video card, sigh).
    But, at least I dont have to spend days putting the system together, breaking my back, being down for days because of it, and popping my shoulder out of its socket every 2 seconds, coccyx screaming at me, neck not able to move it and sending pain down EVERYWHERE (litterally, I now have pain from head to toe, arms/hands/back/front/head/shoulders/legs/feet. I am a mess).
    So, just have to re-install 300+ games on it when it gets here.

    https://www.newegg.com/Product/Produ...82E16883227859

    I7 8700k 3.7/4.7ghz
    2080TI 11GB video card (remember guys, Nvidia STILL recommends 2x the amount of memory of what your video card has).
    32GB memory

    I could care less about anything else, as long as it is NOT evga products in it (except I wont be able to SLI them if I decide to go with an ultra superwide monitor, which would NEED sli to keep frames stable).
