Description

I7-8700k - I didn't want to wait for Ryzen 3000 series, and current Ryzen generation did not suite to my needs so I bought this i7 because I needed more threads than i5 could provide. Since this is a K version I'm planning to delid CPU and OC it after few years of using it on stock clocks

ASUS RTX 2060 6 GB STRIX - Chose this gpu because it is a sweet spot in 1080p gaming and has lowest temps.

Samsung 860 Evo 250 GB - System/program drive Samsung 860 Evo 250 GB - Gaming drive WD 1TB - File drive

Deepcool MATREXX 55 - has a nice look and expandability, provides decent cooling performance

be quiet! Dark Rock 4 - Great cooling performance, conservative look, some room for overclocking

Good build. You could have gotten the i7-9700k for just 20 dollars more and could've gotten 2 more cores. If you are looking for a 6 core CPU you should've gotten the i5-9600k and then you could've gotten the zotac - GeForce RTX 2070 8 GB AMP Extreme Video Card (https://pcpartpicker.com/product/WVPKHx/zotac-geforce-rtx-2070-8-gb-amp-extreme-video-card-zt-t20700b-10p)

Stronger CPU is better for editing for him, although I do agree about the 9700k

Yeah, but 8700k has hyper-threading, and 9700k/9600k don't. So I assumed 8700k would be faster in rendering cinema4d/3ds max projects than 9600k (not so sure about 9700k tho). Also I bought 8700k with a good discount

Just a question. Do you use this for gaming and if you do what games do you play.

I use this mostly for editing and a little bit of gaming (new titles and cs/dota)
