Overall pretty good, your CPU is a little under powered compared to everything else, but it should serve you fine.

Overall, it's a good build, because you plan to use it for so long, I'd recommend staying with the RTX card, because RTX support will only grow over time, and the 2070, is in fact more powerful than the 1080(We'll see what happens with RTX on). Other than that, this build should last you a long time.

My opinion is that you should have built yourself, but to upgrade, definitely an SSD, new GPU, PSU, and maybe another stick of ram(if it's in a 3x4GB configuration), because 3 RAM sticks never work well.

Should work perfectly, just don't forget to install the drivers, in order to get the most performance, there is speculation of a new refresh of the Polaris architecture in the next few weeks if you have to go with team red. IMO, team green offers some better options.

SLI technologies are getting worse and worse, and are almost all, but obsolete, if you really want it, then go right ahead, but even though, nothing is officially supported so I can't really say anything, but if you want to choose that, you can as well.

An overall, very solid build, PCPartPicker automatically do compatibility checks, so no worries there, and things like VR, will for the most part be possible, but may not be the absolute BEST experience, but that's subjective. Good choices and good luck!

So, you have left out a few key points of info. Such as, what are you planning to do/play(I know it will be for gaming, but is there anything else, and what games do you want to play). What is your budget, do you have a certain colour scheme in mind? This will help us help you.

Not really, main difference would be cooler performance(e.g. thermals). Performance won't really differ unless you get a small cooler and powerful card, in those cases thermal throttling will most likely be present.(e.g. 1 fan + 1080ti would thermal throttle most of the time whilst under load). Even if performance did differ, it wouldn't be noticeable.

This build is supposed to be practicality budget-less but within reason. I don't really care about price/performance. I think I've decided to go with the i9-7980xe instead of threadripper, and I won't be using this build for gaming alone. Due to my line of work, SLI can actually be MASSIVE help so I think I'll stick with it.

Really, mobo choice is really based on aesthetics, and chipset(e.g. B350/X370 not to be confused with socket e.g. AM4/LGA1151)

I cannot stress this enough. WAIT BEFORE BUILDING! GPU prices have IMMENSELY inflated and both AMD and NVIDIA are releasing new architectures VERY soon. I listed the 1060 at $300 because that is at least what you should wait for.

P.S. This is a very high price-performance build.

P.P.S. You don't need 32GB of RAM. I built a PC for the exact same reasons as you and didn't need 32GB of RAM. But I do know, a GT 1030 will not cut it.

Not at the moment. As listed above: I plan to upgrade my current setup to this over a long period of time.

Go with the 1050ti it is much better value than the 1050 and will allow you to achieve the 1080p 60fps with less trouble than the 1050

If SLI causes frame-stuttering because of the game, you can disable one of the GPU's whilst playing and re-enable after you've stopped. And most games don't have any stuttering issues with SLI.

Also, a second GPU can work wonders.

E.G. Stream/record/render with one and game with the other. Or in the case of 3D rendering, you can use both at the same time to double render times. An NVME drive is faster than the standard SATA/2.5" drive but in RAID, the 2.5" is faster(depending on the RAID configuration). You would either need to go X299 or X399 for NVME RAID support.

And the ML series use Magnetic Levitation(hence the ML) and are deathly quiet. They also(to my knowledge) use he same RGB LED's as the LL fans.

Got a few things:

  1. Why so much for the motherboard? P.S. The case doesn't have a side panel, so you won't see it anyways.
  2. Wait for GPU prices to come back down and buy a 1080ti and better CPU.
  3. Wait for AMD's new Zen+ architecture and NVIDIA's new VOLTA architechture.
  4. Maybe even wait for RAM prices to come down.
  5. Maybe a side panel on the case as well.

May I ask why the MOBO changed depending on the build? And maybe add in the GPU you want, keep it as a placeholder, and buy it when prices settle

Well, Ryzen isn't an i5 and will work wonders for you. And building a PC right now is a VERY bad idea as both GPU prices/stock and RAM prices have over doubled. Unless you have no choice, wait. Not to mention that AMD is releasing Ryzen 2 on the zen+ architecture and Nvidia is releasing their new VOLTA architecture soon aswell. Your best(and in my opinion, only option) is to wait.

No, crypto-miners, PUBG in china, and DRAM prices skyrocketing have all affected GPU pricing

Well good luck with your new build. I got really unlucky and lucky. My PC actually ended up dying so I needed to act urgently. I managed to buy my GPU before the price spike. Soooooo, lose-win. Luckily you still have a working PC as you mentioned so my best hopes are out that the same thing doesn't happen to you.

No, likely you wouldn’t notice anything and the Ryzen series chips are coming out with a new gen in a few months. Not to mention that NVIDIA will be releasing their Volta architecture cards very soon.

Not only that but those are just a few reasons building a PC right now is a bad idea. You also have to factor in RAM/memory prices and GPU prices. I wholeheartedly recommend waiting unless you find the absolute jackpot of a(n) deal(s). But that probably won’t happen.

Good to hear. Originally I was planning on going with a 1050ti and Ryzen 5 1400. But after crunching some numbers I realized I could afford the 1070 and Ryzen 5 1600. Unfortunately I bought a 450w 80+ Bronce Corsair psu during the “crunching numbers”

Personally, I say go with the 1700 and 1080 or even 1600 and 1080ti(if you can find one for cheap)

I also recommend waiting for prices to settle down rather than buying now.

EDIT: 1700X and 1080 when prices settle down as the X varient is only $10(as you have repeated)

1st: Why do you want an AMD card?

2nd: I recommend downgrading the CPU and going with a more powerful GPU. I recommend Ryzen 5 1600 and GTX 1070/Vega 56(if your heart truly desires an AMD card)

3rd: It is a really poor decision and use of money to build a PC right now. Wait until prices come down and you get more performance for less money.

Cooling you may want to think about cleaning/replacing sometime soon. Corsair’s new ML series of fans use Magnetic Levitation to brace and spin making them EXTREMELY quiet. They are rather expensive but you asked...

For a keyboard I recommend the Corsair K95 Platinum. Once again, rather expensive but well worth it in my opinion. Maybe a K70 if you don’t want to go all out.

Graphics card is the only thing else I can really recommend. It will work wonders for you for now, but as soon as Volta comes out, maybe consider that?

Not that I know of. So painting would be your best option. Maybe consider water cooling, buying a different gpu if you haven’t already purchased the fe card, or try the look of different kinds of paint to see which one looks best. And by try, I mean get a scrap piece of metal and spray paint that with different paints to see which one you like best.
