I'm building a PC and I'm currently at the planning stage.
I want it to be super powerful.. enough so that I won't ever have to worry about it slowing down for anything.
The main things I would be using it for are CAD (Revit), rendering plugins for CAD and some occasional (but graphics intensive) gaming (mainly Forza Horizon 4).
I've been using a 2019 16" MacBook Pro (i9-9880H+32GB RAM+Radeon Pro 5500M 8GB). It's been good but it's very expensive and I wanted to get a high-end PC so I don't have to worry about VMs with windows or Bootcamp.
I've put together a list of the things I want to include but I'd like some advice on a few things here and there I haven't decided on yet.
CPU: i9-10900 (BX8070110900)
Motherboard (here's a choice or potentially a new suggestion (I want it to be able to support at least 64GB ram for future upgrades, and wifi)):
1. MSI MPG Z490 GAMING EDGE WIFI Intel Z490 S1200
2. MSI B550 TOMAHAWK AMD B550
3. Asus ROG STRIX Z490-F GAMING Intel Z490
RAM: Corsair Vengeance RGB PRO 3200 MHz (2x 16GB) (CMW32GX4M2E3200C16)
Graphics (here's a choice or potentially a new suggestion - this is one I'm really not sure about (I want at the very least 8GB)):
1. RTX 2070
2. RTX 2070 Super
3. RTX 1080ti
I'm just really not sure what one to get with the other specs I'm getting.
Hard Drive: WD Black 1TB M.2
Power Supply: Corsair 850Watt 80+Plus Gold (Do I need more than 850W?)
Here's where I have no idea what to do:
Cooler: Water cooling or air cooling? How many fans? Do I get a water block for the graphics card? Will these specs do okay with just air cooling?
Case: What's the best one (with a glass side) for these specs? I want the build to be clean and look sleek.
Lighting: Does strip lighting just look tacky? Am I better off just getting RGB fans and making sure the components (such as RAM, SSD, Cooler, etc) are RGB to light it up?
Cabling: Will I need extra cables? or will all the cables come with the parts I've listed?
I think that's all. If there's anything I've left out please let me know or add anything extra you think I need to consider.
Thanks in advance for your time!
