I'd love it if I could get the price back to 2000. But I dont think it's too possible.

Without going pre-owned, those are the best prices. Out of curiosity though, is this all needed? i7, 32GB of RAM, AIO? Only asking because I don't know what your needs and uses are.

Gaming with ark hahaha, Adobe suite programs, Cad programs, editing of photos and videos, coding In the future, streaming, but it's all going on to a 4k oled LG tv so I was told I need the 2080.

Lol, you're going to need a lot more than an i7 and 2080 for Ark!

Okay, if you'll be doing all of that, I do agree with your choices of an i7 and 32GB of RAM. The downside to that is there really is no way to make it cheaper unless you opt for lesser/pre-owned hardware.

Is gaming the priority? I ask because you might end up having some serious response time issues gaming on a TV. I love the idea of gaming with a 4K OLED panel (because that sounds like a dream come true) but TVs simply are not made for a serious gamer. Not without spending thousands and thousands of dollars for a low response time, high refresh rate TV.

Well.... it...... it was a 1700 TV. I hope it has a high refresh rate. But I looked up the best 4k tv for gaming and the one I have came up at the top of 4 lists.

They've made the game better. Meaning refining the quality of their game. So a ton of aesthetic and building mods. More maps. I think they're doing ark 2.

https://pcpartpicker.com/list/B7gJJ8 Changed RAM to a cheaper option. Changed video card to an RTX 2070, the 2080s are slowly decreasing in value.
Changed the motherboard. Changed memory. Changed keyboard and mouse (No need to spend $320) on peripherals.
Changed Cooler to another water cooler.

I must note. I need the 32 GB for large as heck programs and tons of gaming in the future. Also I am putting the output to a 4k oled lg tv so I was told I need the 2080. I also need the wireless mouse hahaha and the keyboard is so I can easier navigate the Adobe suite programs. I'll take the watercooler though hahaha

  • Like said, it's possible to fit a 9900K in this budget.

  • Better cooler. I generally don't recommend 240mm for eighth and ninth generation Intel CPUs. $7 more for a 280mm, deal, no contest.

  • I'm really doubtful if you need 32 GB RAM. What are your uses? Gaming? No. Content creation? Yes.

  • Swapped out the SSD to a 660p, saves you $40.

  • Swapped GPU to a cheaper one which saves you $100. The Gaming Amp is great, currently has a promotion code to knock $90 off, which is why it's this much cheaper (original price is only $10 cheaper) and the difference in speed is only 60 MHz, which is nothing and unnoticeable. Value for money, this wins, as long as you get it with the promotion code.

  • Swapped to a 650W PSU because it's more than enough and can shave off $20. 750W is fine if you want to keep it, but it's not really necessary.

  • Just my opinion.
