All good, but swap for Taichi, recommended from overclockers/8 pack.

Ampere is out next summer, wouldn't bother with 2080TI. The 2070 super is probably best.

(Oh, you already bought it)

Well, my thoughts still stand. Save cash on GPU, better board and perhaps a nice 240 rad. Sure others will chime in.

Well I would recommend a good high refresh rate monitor over a good TV, but the 49" Bravia has pretty good input latency according to displaylag.com. Still about 3x the input latency of a good monitor, and limited to 60Hz.....

As someone with the option of both a good 4K TV and a 165Hz WQHD G-Sync monitor - IMO the monitor is a way better experience.

Congrats on the build!

Totally Peed of with OCUK it took them an email and 11 days to tell me that they had no stock of the graphic card or mother board. They have upgraded the mother board to the pro version for free and will get stock at the end of the week for the card. If no luck by then I will just cancel and buy some where else. At this rate I might as well wait until next summer to upgrade it taking so long.

They must have known last week that stocks where low and just annoyed about the lack of communication.

Still no new PC waiting for stock on Card still. At least its got ETA 09/08 so at least Friday they might be able to start building it. This is worst experience ive had ever buying something.
