Building a new PC

Have a 3090 currently but am severely bottlenecked. Looking to get the best possible PC that I can build through microcenter in Kansas City. Looking for high end so like 13900k and ddr5 ram.

You have the 2 main components picked out already. I'm sure if you just went to the store there would be someone there that could run you through what they have in stock. Microcenter doesn't ship shit in from other stores so if you are looking to buy strictly from them then just go there and see what they have.

Nice timing. Microcenter is running some good mobo/CPU bundles right now. This is what I would build:

ASUS Z690-PLUS TUF Gaming WiFi DDR5 and Intel Core i9-12900K combo
$509 ($189 savings): https://www.microcenter.com/product/...herboard-combo

G.Skill Trident Z5 RGB 32GB (2 x 16GB) DDR5-6000 PC5-48000 CL36
$150: https://www.microcenter.com/product/...-TZ5RK_-_Black

You could also go with an i7 instead of an i9 and save $170 off the mobo/CPU bundle. If you're mostly just gaming, you don't necessarily need the extra cores.

If you don't currently have NVME storage, this would be a great time to include that as well. The speed improvement even over old SSD drives is so impressive.

Nah, in all seriousness, I know you're not looking for a Mac. That being said, the Intel has marginally better performance but is both higher in cost and lower in efficiency.

Doesn't matter. It's better. Buying that little varmint computer isn't an option. I'm stuffing an RTX 3050 and 64 GB of DDR4 in this machine.

Mac just won't allow me to do that. PUNTED!

I need about $2,800 for what I want right now and my PC is waaaay overdue.

I'm still rocking an 8th gen i5 and a 2080.

Which likely means you are gaming along just fine. That rig should max out 1440P, and probably do fine with some games at 4K.

I play at 1440p. Depends on what we call maxing out. It purrs in the 70-80 FPS range on max settings with no RT most times. I want solid frames with RT on.

People sleep on RT, but it's a game changer to me. The difference in the overall feel is astounding.

Ray Tracing is absolutely a game changer, Mr. Pants. (2K)1440p with good ray tracing is the best available quality at the moment for just about any gaming rig. You can definitely overspend by a huge margin and get that equivalent 4K performance, but it will certainly cost you, and is generally not tuned as well for performance.

1440p should still be the current ideal sweet spot even with a new 40X0 card. And NVidia is absolutely the king at ray tracing. Equivalent AMD cards might have double the VRAM, but still can't really equally compete when it comes to RT. AMD owners will tell you that RT doesn't really matter because of this, but they are jealous liars. NVidia ****ing rules..

I'm currently replaying Quake 2 that's had an RTX remaster, and it's been surprisingly awesome. The game was originally released in 1997. But the RTX remaster makes it a completely different experience. They're remastering lots of games that currently look amazing.

Intel and NVidia is currently the best you can get...
