    Hi guys. It been around 9 years since my last PC build so I'm looking at making a new one.

    I've decided to opt for the Ryzen 7 2700x CPU but I'm having more trouble deciding which GPU to go for, currently am leaning between the RTX 2080 and a GTX 1080ti. I wish they weren't the closer side to a grand but that's the side effect of all the crypto mining and NVIDIA having a monopoly. If I want a high-end one I guess I have to fork out.

    Any thoughts on which to opt for? I currently have a 1080p PC monitor but I'm going to buy a new one in future, undecided between 1440p and 4k at the moment but leaning towards the latter. I am thinking the RTX 2080 might have the edge based on the fact it's not much more expensive than the 1080ti's and it is probably more future-proof based on the connections and new tech in it.

    Here's the full build I'm looking at making, constructive criticism/comments welcome:

    CPU: AMD Ryzen 7 2700x
    GPU: 1080ti/RTX2080
    SSD: Samsung 500gb Evo
    HDD: 10TB HDD
    PSU: 750W Corsair RMX750x Modular
    MOBO: MSIX470 M7
    RAM: 16GB (2x8GB) Corsair 3000mhz
    Case: Not sure? Open to recommendations. Need one with good air flow.
