Hey Guys and Gals,
I am trying to build a great VR/gaming computer. My last rig is from 2010. I've done a lot of comparing and research, and built the following computer. I was hoping to get some feedback before pulling the trigger. It looks like, for the time being, there is no benefit to having two graphics cards, so I only added one.

Any and all advice is greatly appreciated!

Do you really want Cyberpower or would you build you own? That company and iBuypower are... iffy.

The cost of the8086k over an 8700k isnot worth it. Just OC the 8700k.

$9 for 3 fans - those are really poor fans and 120mm can be loud, especially that cheap.

There is no need for a hard drive cooler. At all.

With a 1tb ssd theres no value in a huge hdd with an added optane. Just put the slow loaders on the ssd.

Get 2x16gb instead of 4x8.

Very little ROI from that Maximus over something like a Strix. Throwing money away.

Unless you are joining a domain, Win 10 pro is also wasted $.

You need a good 750w psu - not 1k.

Edit: which Cyberpower build is this?

Also - would not trust them to build a custom loop.

My rig is from 2010 and it runs VR, x58 LGA 1366 with 1070 ti. If your old rig is pretty fast, I would get a rtx 2080 ti and scrap the new build.
