But, in general, the gain in FPS from 9900K CPU is probably mostly from to the higher boost clocks. Just overclock your CPU if really necessary and direct the saved money towards the 2080Ti.
Indeed, I would rather cut down the CPU, even go AMD if you ask me, but go for a BIGGER GPU.

Get at least a 2080 or 1080ti imho.

I have built a few TUF back in the days when they really were different, solid and better components, unfortunately, this has changed according to many reviews I have seen.
I would not build a rig based on TUF anymore.

To answer your question...I would also not pick the E-Gaming. I run it as Z370 and HATE it. The memory topology sucks BIG time.
I'd look at Gigabyte or Asrock, maybe MSI, in that price range.
- GIGABYTE AORUS Z390 PRO WIFI - it is better?


Thank you guys, and last question. ASUS or. Gigabyte - and why? Chicken or egg?

Tbh, I'd go with Gigabyte Aorus Master X570 ( or the bigger one IF you need those extra's, VRM is 99% same ) and a Ryzen 3700x, or 3600 or any other Ryzen 3rd gen, depending on your wallet.

Remember, all those CPU's will easily outrun a 2070, so best is to keep the CPU a notch lower in price but therefor get the better GPU. A AMD-5700 or 5700XT is a real competitor. Unless you got Dollars for a 2080ti, I'd grab the 5700(XT).

My new rig would read AMD top to bottom with DDR4-3600 CL16-16-16-38 and maybe get that tuned to 14 or 15...and call it a day.

* I had such bad luck with Asus boards last couple years with RAM and all sorts of trouble, incl. Poseidon cards from 800-1000€ that I am not buying Asus in the near-mid future but tend to look at Gigabyte as my most probable next vendor. But that is just me.

Just my 2 cents

That's why I'm holding onto my setup for another year or so.... Same with the GPU....

Wait till all this different hardware matures, including DCS.

The last of the 7th gen with a well matured Asus board, that hasn't miss a beat (touch wood) after setting it all up. I don't think these new cpu chips would make a real big difference with DCS then the 7700 - 4 core, running the same GPU.

I also record, multiplayer and watch video's on YouTube when flying no probs. Max settings with fps locked at 60 and hold 60 with large missions etc.

I agree with this. Go for the best GPU you can afford. I'm going to upgrade to 2080S in few months.

So which parts of the memory are most important? I'm in the middle of planning a PC Refit myself. I've already got a 1080 Ti FE but still running on an I7-4770 from about six years ago. My target is high resolution VR, either HP Reverb or Pimax.

In that context, does the Ryzen meet the I9 with appropriate ram selection?
