    Question PC - Advice/Upgrade Recommendations

    Alright so last week, I decided to finally upgrade my entire PC setup. My current computer is 8 years old running an Intel Core i7 3770K @ 3.50GHz, 8GB Dual-Channel DDR3 @ 668MHz, ASUSTeK COMPUTER INC. P8Z77-V LX, NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080, and 372GB NVMe INTEL SSDPEDMW40.

    My new build is from iBuyPower (NRG Element Pro Plus II) coming tomorrow.

    SPECS

    Operating System :: Windows 10 Home
    Case :: iBUYPOWER Element MR Mirror Finished ARGB
    Processor :: Intel® Core™ i7-9700KF Processor (8x 3.60GHz/12MB L3 Cache)
    Processor Cooling :: iBUYPOWER 120mm RGB Liquid Cooling System
    Memory :: 16GB [8GB x 2] DDR4-3200MHz ADATA XPG SPECTRIX D41 RGB - White
    Storage :: 1TB Intel 660P M.2 NVMe SSD
    Video Card :: MSI VENTUS GeForce RTX 2070 SUPER - 8GB GDDR6 (VR Ready)
    Motherboard :: ASUS Prime Z390-P
    Power Supply :: 650 Watt - HIGH POWER 80 PLUS Gold

    If you had to give me your honest opinion, is this computer good enough or is there something you'd personally upgrade from the specs listed above? I was excited to just finally get something new and I already know this PC alone will be dramatically better than my current one. Here are some things to note.

    I do NOT want to do any type of overclocking.
    I will NEVER exceed my dual 27 inch 1440p G Sync IPS monitors.
    The types of games I play on the PC are CoD, Rainbow Six Siege, CSGO, GTA V, and OSRS.

    Thanks for your help/advice.

    seems ok for what you want.. if no overclocking, you could save money with a 9700f instead of 9700kf
    Lifts:
    Squat: 460x1
    Bench: 400x1
    Deadlift: 575x1
    OHP: 250x2
    Weight: 180 lbs.

    Don't have heroes; look up to no one. Because as long as someone's leading the way, the best you'll ever be is second.

    Thanks bro, unfortunately I couldn't do any type of modifications/upgrades/downgrades. It was from their Same Day RDY systems. It was ordered on Thursday and it'll be here tomorrow (tracking already shows it sitting at my local FedEx warehouse). When I looked at their other systems the shipping time was up to a month! I wanted one quick and this was the best option if I didn't want to go over $1750 (this one cost $1660 after taxes).

    For the games you wanna play you should be fine brah. Just keep a check on that cooling system. Mirin but I have a buddy that got an IBUYPOWER with their cooling system and there were some serious temp fluctuations. No idea what caused it, had to return it and not a problem anymore.

    Maybe 1 in million case but just heads up

    Thanks bro! I had the same worry when I bought my first pre built that I'm currently still using (CyberPowerPC) when I bought it 8 years ago it was $2200! I bought into the hype and got it only because it had the GTX Titan. 8 years later the GPU went out when I had to upgrade to the 1080, and just recently my HDD went out. Thank god my buddy gave me his old SSD a few years ago or I would've been ****ed. My CPU runs hot sometimes when I've been playing CoD too long. I'll definitely be keeping tabs using Speccy. Appreciate your feedback!

    Seems kind of weird to ask us for advice for a computer you already ordered... makes more sense to wait another day and write a brag thread rather than an advice thread.

    The rest of it is about as high-end as you can go in 2020: not quite an i9/2080-Ti death rig, but not too far off it either.

    I wouldn't be against upgrading parts in the PC even though its a pre built. I just wanted something quick because I've been getting the sense something else is going to go wrong with my current PC. I tried searching Google before making a thread but mostly the only thing people seemed to talk about was a motherboard upgrade but in all the cases they were talking about overclocking capabilities.

    I hear you on that! I checked out the benchmarks on the i7/i9 and 2070S/2080S. I couldn't justify the several hundred dollars more it would cost just to get a slight performance upgrade.
