Advice Required

Hi All,


 


Always watching LTT so thought this would be the best place to get some advice on my next build.


 


Essentially, I feel like my current PC is showing it's age, parts vary in age from 2012 to less than a year old:


 


8Pack Approved - Intel Core i5 6400 @ 4.4GHz Overclocked Quad Core Gaming Bundle
- Asus Z170-E Intel Z170
- Intel Core i5-6400 2.70GHz
- Kingston Fury Black 16GB (2x8GB) DDR4 PC4-21300C15 2666MHz
- Alpenföhn Brocken 2 CPU Cooler


 


Along side that, i have:


PNY GeForce RTX 2060 6GB XLR8 GPU.


Western Digital WD Blue 3D NAND M.2 SATA, 500 GB


Corsair 850W PSU (not modular, RM line i think, its like 7 years old).


 


I won't be changing my monitors:


Dell S2716DG - 27 Inch, 1 ms, 1440p at 144 Hz, Nvidia G-Sync.
Acer KG271   - 27 Inch, 1 ms, 1080p at 60 Hz.


 


My plan is to go AIO on the CPU and GPU, unless there is a compelling argument not to.


 


I think i am looking at a 9700/9900k or 3700/3800/3900X.


RTX 2080 TI, probably the Gigabyte Waterforce one.


32GB of speed appropriate ram to the CPU selection.


1TB M.2, probably a Samsung 970?


I'm open to suggestions on cases, i like the squarer cube style with hidden cables, like the Corsair 680X.


PSU will be fully modular, i hate cables.


 


I'm largely indifferent to RGB, i can take it or leave it and would probably end up fixing it to a specific colour (just as i have on my razer blackwidow keyboard).


 


I live in the UK, and have 3k roughly to spend, my use case is purely gaming, i usually end up going back to the old staples - WoW, GTA5, Overwatch, PUBG, i know i don't need an upgrade to play these, some of the new/upcoming titles look amazing and i'd like to experience them at a higher setting than what i can currently achieve 144FPS at (the new COD, Gears, Cyberpunk, to name a few).


 


Looking for feedback / suggestions on what my plans are thus far really, and cases ... i feel like £220 quid for the 680 is a bit of a rip...


 


Cheers, all and thanks in advance!
