    I believe that, if you want to build a PC, make it a solid one from the start. As you mentioned, that you liked it to function for a couple years, why not build a beast, that has components on the bleeding edge of technology? The technology of the given time is tremendous and it will continue to be for a while Processor's, motherboard's, ram, solid state devices, PCIe hard drives, graphic card's and all other component's that come to mind are so advanced in this age. Their so fast, that make's you wonder what the future has in store for us Cpu's, if chosen from the top shelf, for sure, need no modification for a few years. The only thing to keep in mind is changing your random access memory such as adding more module's, amending your storage devices or graphic cards. With the last component mentioned, unfortunately, you probably need to adjust sooner. However, if you choose GTX1080Ti or 2080 series, it won't be a bad decision but a good one, at least for the near future.
    You might not buy 128 gigabytes of random access memory at first because I know it's really expensive but why not settle for the half of it? I have 64GB running under 3000mhz (yep, it's overclocked ). When I bought this computer, at the first glance, it was under JEDEC standards (2666mhz). Once it was tweaked, I noticed a minor details in graphical display, a bit more richer colors but the actual speed of my system, it reacts the same as of standard ram frequency. I doubt that 16 or 32GB modules installed are to compare with 64 gigabytes or more, even for daily basis computing.
    All in all, it entirely depends on what you have planned for your PC. If you're looking into mainly gaming, proceed on establishing that beast Once you have it, for sure, regular computing such as browsing the internet, drafting document's on Microsoft Word or just listening to music, will enlighten your overall experience & satisfaction, that you have this system.

    It's also been a while since I've done this so I'm kinda out of the loop (or so it feels this way) when it comes to new hardware.
    I usually don't change my PC too often so I'd like to go with something that will last for a few years. This is also the reason I haven't set a budget yet.
    This is what I've come up with so far.

    • Case: Be quiet! Dark Base 900, FullTower + some extra Be quiet! Silent Wings 3 140mm PWM fans if needed
    • Power Supply: Corsair RMi Series RM750i, 80 PLUS® Gold, 750 W, PFC Activ, ATX 2.4
    • Motherboard: ASUS MAXIMUS X HERO, Socket 1151
    • CPU: Intel® Core™ i7-8700K Coffee Lake, 3.70GHz, 12M, Socket 1151
    • CPU Cooler: Noctua NH-D15
    • Video Card: ASUS GeForce® GTX 1080 Ti STRIX, 11GB GDDR5X, 352-bit
    • SSD: Samsung 860 EVO, 1TB, SATA III, M.2
    • HDD: SEAGATE IronWolf NAS 2TB, 5900rpm, SATA3, 64MB (I already have this and didn't use it at all and since it's all about storage...)
    • Memory: Corsair Vengeance RGB LED 16GB DDR4, 3000MHz, CL16, Dual Channel
    • Monitor: PG27VQ vs PG278QR (not sure which one but I'd like to go 2K)

    Any thoughts? Is there something I'm missing?

    I saw that Fry's Electronics has that processor on sale right now

Im still waiting for my 2080 ti pre order to arrive.

    You can check out my build and compare. I went with the corsair power supply because their warranty is better than Evga. Corsair would replace the unit with a brand new unit if anything would to happen instead of Evga refurbish unit. Memories, I went with the Corsair LOW Profile 32g kit to fit the cpu fan and 32g would future proof my system for what I need.
    Thanks. Think I'll go with this kit:
    I believe it's the same you're using. And I've heard some good things about it.

    About the CPU cooler, I've decided to go with Noctua NH-D15 since everyone keeps saying how good it is but frankly I'm a little paranoid about this. Is it a good choice or should I go with something else?

    The NH-D15 is the best air cooler on the market.

    when building my pc, I think i spent 2 weeks reading up on aio and air cooler, I decided to go with the Noctua nh-d15. It’s the safely route imo. 6 year warranty and no need to worry about pump failure and leakage. Even though the nhd15 is huge af. I grew to liking the look of it. It sorta give my pc a beastly machine look. optimus prime from the transformer. Pure performance and is dead silent. On a side note. I will adding 4 more noctua pwm 140mm fan because they’re on sale. Everything added up is probably same price as a 360 aio.... also i read up on delidding but that’s probably not going to happen until my warranty is over. The pc is fast enough for my usage at the time being

    Post Nice choice of components ... but I would choose

    the Noctua NH-D15s and get an additional fan. This cooler offers more clearance. And I would purchase G.Skill memory.

    Maybe is Noctua NH-D15 best Air cooler but I never back on Air any more.
    Watercooling is not only because performance. It' become monotonous changing constant platform add AIO system and that's it, later only work about PC is cleaning dust.

    I definitely missed to work more around PC and upgrade platform and GPU is not only enthusiasm.
    For first I want to escape from RGB world and investing from time to time in watercooling parts even if platform is 2-3-4 years old is definitely cool.

    I decide for future, Poseidon arrive tomorrow or day after than I will stay with 200-300 euro in pocket to buy 1TB M.2 and from January start official saving for next platform.
    Every month 100 euro on side. 8 months successor of i9-9820X, 12 months Rampage 7 Apex, 14 months, 32GB of DDR4. Plus few hundreds from my RIG. And no hurry, if Intel launch 3rd CPU in 2066 socket, never mine delay, every month 100 euro more for better platform, until DDR5 or something really new.

    Definitely new memory, new socket and processor and chipset are best reason to upgrade. Maxed we wait was 5-6 years I think between new memories.

    here you see the ND15 fan on my system. its HUGE ( its a 150mm fan ) and you may have to move the fan a bit up like i had to.
    dont mind the dust.............
