I'm looking to do my first build, and I'm planning on blowing it out a bit. Definitely prefer AMD for the multi-threaded performance, and I'd like to go for maximum cooling without using water. This build will be used for a combination of gaming (likely using a monitor like the Samsung CHG90, but possibly a smaller 1440p ultrawide), BOINC, and content creation (UX design + video creation). I did look at Threadripper 2950X or a 2080 Ti but didn't feel like splurging quite that hard (tough call though)!
I've been iterating on this list for a while now and trying to incorporate advice from guys like Linus, Jay, Paul, Kyle, and of course Steve from Gamers Nexus. Any thoughts/suggestions? Thanks!
