    Gaming Build. Pulling Trigger.

    Hi:

    With the help of the community I decided for this build. I already own a 1080 Ti EVGA Black Edition thats why i didnt include it on the list.


    pcpartpicker.com/list/3W6xFt


    CPU: Intel - Core i7-8700K 3.7GHz 6-Core Processor
    CPU Cooler: Corsair - H100i v2 70.7 CFM Liquid CPU Cooler
    Motherboard: Asus - ROG STRIX Z370-E GAMING ATX LGA1151 Motherboard
    Memory: Corsair - Vengeance RGB 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR4-3200 Memory
    Storage: Samsung - 960 EVO 500GB M.2-2280 Solid State Drive
    Storage: Seagate - Barracuda 2TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive
    Case: Phanteks - Enthoo Pro M Tempered Glass (Black) ATX Mid Tower Case
    Power Supply: Corsair - 750W 80+ Platinum Certified Fully-Modular ATX Power Supply
    Monitor: Acer - Predator X34 34.0" 3440x1440 100Hz Monitor
    Total: $2335.30


    I just want to get some opinion on the build and if its the best combination of components. I still have $250 in the budget.
    Is this water cooler the best option for this build or should I go air?

    Thank You!!!

    Corsair H150i is a better cooler, if your case can fit it.

    Go with a good Seasonic PSU and i would pick a good air cooler over a AiO cooler.
    Maybe put some money into a good keyboard and mouse, also speaker, headset, amp or lightning could be improved if you lack some RGB in your life.
