    New build advice

    Hi all

    So i need to build a new PC, i have a rtx2080ti already. This build will be for gaming only.
    I am thinking of using the 9900k CPU, however im not sure which ram and motherboard to
    use. Im not interested in lights/bling as the computer will be under the desk.
    What is the best, by best i mean most usb c, storage options etc. for a socket 1151 is there?
    Over cloaking cpu is ok, cant be bothered with ram etc. just want to plug in and blaze.
    I want it fast...
    Any recommendation?

    thanks
    Shayne

    Hi Shayne D

    If using the 9900k you'll want a z370/z390 motherboard and unfortunately all the ROG boards listed have only one usb-c port. You may have to go x399 if you want more usb-c ports.

    G.Skill Trident Z is popular here, if you want ultra fast ram go with 16GB of say 4000MHz - 4266MHz.

    If going with 32GB choose a lower frequency of say 3200MHz - 3600MHz.

    If you want plug and play go with 3200MHz of either 16GB or 32GB.
