LOL "bottlenecks" I always love that word when people use it unnecessarily and incorrectly when it comes to computers :rolleyes:

And yes, apparently you already know you're doing it so only thing left to do is for mods to lock. I guess the "bottlenecking" happens with the 1080 Ti. Everyone knows you need two of those in SLI to "kill game".

The only changes I would make are this:

- get an M.2 NVME SSD as your main 256gb OS SSD
- get a 120gb SSD to use as a cache drive for your 2tb gaming drive using Intel's RST caching technology

You will have an extremely powerful gaming setup.

Actually one thing I will say is that slightly faster RAM might give you more bang for your buck. DDR4 3000mhz seems to be the sweet spot right now.

You should have gone with the Intel Core i9-7980XE @ 2.60GHz

I am getting the 256gb m.2 pcie drive for the OS and some programs. Never heard of using a 128gb ssd as a cache for the hard drive before but if it will improve performance even more than it seems a small price to pay. Which one do you reccommend?

I also would like to get a 2tb ssd for my games. Is this one any good? Crucial 2 TB SSD . Are there any better than this at a decent price?

Never heard of core i9-7980xe before. I will look into it.

Thanks Again Guys

I5 is fine for gaming your i7 is almost overkill and an i9 is a big waste of money for your needs.

1TB SSD. Some games are yuge. GOW 4 is like 100GB. It's insane.
