Hi, currently buying parts;
Goal is to have 4K capable setup for FPS asap;

All started with the monitor which is already purchased:
Acer Predator CG437K 42.5 Inch 4K UHD 3840 X 2160 Resolution Gaming Monitor, G-Sync Compatible, VESA Certified DisplayHDR 1000, 144Hz, 1MS VRB

Experts please advice if the below rig would work :

Processor: Intel i9-10900K 10Core, 20Thread, 3.7GHz Base, 5.3GHz Turbo With X299 UD Motherboad
RAM: 32GB - 2 x 16GB DDR4 3000MHz with heat sink
GPU: Nvidia RTX 2080ti 11GB
SSD: 480GB M.2
HDD: 4TB - 1 x 4TB 7200rpm (Seagate)
PSU: 650 Watt High Performance
CPU Cooler: Liquid Cooling with 160mm High Density Radiator
Ventilation: Front Intake, Rear Top Exhaust with multiple 120mm Fan

Thanks a ton !
Motherboard is incompatible with the processor - you need a Z490 mobo.

What PSU make and model?

What case?

What CPU cooler?

For a build of this budget I'd ideally suggest a 1TB SSD given the size of many modern games and how mych you're spending on the system overall.

The overall limiter to performance at 4k will be the graphics card. Which si normal for 4k gaming. Even a 2080 ti will struggle to keep/reach 60fps in some games at higher settings.

Nvidia and AMD are both expected to release powerful new graphics cards later this year, potentially as soon as September. If it's not urgent, wait until the new GPUs come out and probably get one of those to get as much performance at 4k as possible. It's almost a waste to buy an RTX 2080 ti now - Nvidia have allegedly discontinued production already
