    CPU:: AMD Ryzen Threadripper 2950X
    Haven't figured out my water cooling set up yet
    Power supply :: Corsair AX1200i
    Video::2x ASUS Dual GeForce RTX 2080 Ti DUAL-RTX2080TI-O11G 11GB 352-Bit GDDR6 PCI Express 3.0 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video
    Ram:: G.Skill Ripjaws V 128GB (8x16GB) DDR4 3000 MHz CL14

    Case:: Im kind of flopping around but leaning at this one.

    Maybe and AIO cooler?
    Corsair Hydro Series, H150i PRO or should I go for more?

    I want this rig to last me quite a while as you can tell.

    The H100i was actually the one I was looking at jdc. Just wasn't set in stone.

    Changed my CPU to the 2920x (opens me up to more possibilities with more of my budget left) and ordered this morning. CPU and Board should be here by next week and as it seems? These things are really picky about the they keep (the ram) so I have to be careful. So that's on hold until I get time for some more research. Now I need to find a case and decide my cooling solution. I've been looking through FrozenCpu's website at their stuff but I don't know if I really want to hassle with it.

    Although I don't like AMD CPU's still your build is pretty decent. Except for, 2080 Ti. I mean, is it necessary nowadays and even in 5 years? I'm not sure. Well, maybe it's just me who prefer to save money but I really see no reason to purchase it now. Recently I ordered on eBay 1080 Ti. I had an issue with a seller who mixed up my Wyoming zip code with another but that's not a thing. So, consider another Video card.

    Maybe the reason we don't buy things from fleabay, we buy from reputable dealers like Newegg.I believe, OP has already decided on what he's building and has already bought his components. It's not always about if it's necessary, it's about what we want.
