Take two, the only downside is the little higher price and more cables, everything else is positive

BTW...check ADATA's newest NVMe drive, maybe that is in reach.

It's got excellent reviews and a real good price, 1TB is 225.€ iirc.

For that, if it is the money. I'd take just 1 NVMe over 2 SATA SSD's for now. 1TB is plenty too.


Yeah, didnt wanna confuse you, but that is how I think.

T-Topology and other layouts for dummies like us

I was a bit wrong with my statement above, also seems like it is less often used as I thought.

Anyway, worth the time if you work RAM

Been busy including a new job so still haven't built this thing! This is what I'm thinking on pulling the trigger on:
GREEN = already owned

CPU
i7-9700K
H/S
Noctua NH-D15 £78
GPU
EVGA GTX 1080Ti FTW3
RAM
G.Skill Trident Z 32GB (2x16) 3200MHz CL14-14-14-34 >£400
M/B
Gigabyte Z390 Aorus Elite £165
Storage
2X Samsung 860 Evo 500GB £75 + £75
OR 2x Crucial MX500 500GB £62 + £62
OR 1x Crucial MX500 1TB £113
1TB SATA2 HD
PSU
Corsair RM750x £100
Case

Anidees AI8 Full Tower Case £90
Display
27" GSync Compatible IPS???
Controllers

CH Rudder Pedals
TrackIR

Other stuff
Windows 10 Home Retail £100
X-rite i1 Display Pro monitor calibrator £178
Display Port 1.4 cable 3m £10

# Still don't think I need more than the Aorus elite M/B for a 5GHz OC.
# Not sure where to start looking for a GSync compatible monitor, but they should be less expensive than full GSync.
# Not convinced there's any real world difference between SSDs on the SATA bus???
# I think a full tower case is best for that D15 cooler.

All comments welcome.

I just read the Radeon VII review at Guru3d. Though it's a bit early to say it all, it beat the 1080ti in almost any game and discipline, trading blows with the 2080 and recent Titans, in BF-V it kills the 2080ti, yeah yeah, killed it.

With 16GB HBM2, that cant be bad for DCS and you have native Freesync. I'd really look into that card. The 1080ti is likely also higher in price, has less VRAM and less power. Both are an old architecture tho, but that is how it is.

The rest looks OK, I would just NEVER EVER buy or use any Home version of any Windows, but I own more than 1 PC and have an avid home network.
