    Thank you!

    I just picked up this monitor as it will not be that big, I think 43" would have been a bit too big for me:

    Asus VA32UQ 31.5” HDR Monitor 4K (3840 X 2160) FreeSync/Adaptive Sync Eye Care DisplayPort HDMI HDR10:

    Nothing, I just will use the case, the other hard drives, the power supply, RAM and fans already mounted in the case from my older PC.

    Also I already have peripherals ready.

    This is my solution as @Judas and @Tipstaff let me know the above heatsink is incompatible with my mobo, if @Judas is interested in the other heatsink he can swipe it off of me, meanwhile, I ordered the one he suggested just now and also change of graphics card, the other one didn't end up shipping so got this one instead:

    ZOTAC Trinity OC GeForce RTX 3080 Ti 12GB GDDR6X PCI Express 4.0 ATX Video Card ZT-A30810J-10P:

    I just bought this card, the ASUS TUF Gaming NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 OC Edition 12GB Graphics Card, because I realized GPU prices are now going down so I didn't exactly pull the trigger on the Zotac one I put in the thread, aaaand I got a great deal on it (1600 CAD brand new, now just waiting for the heatsink and it to arrive, the motherboard too, they keep delaying them dunno why) :D :

    I was going to say "Black or Bust"
    Better option, imo.

    the zotacs are arguably the dirt cheap models of nvidia's product stacks.

    Thanks guys, yeah the ASUS TUF cards are considered B tier as far as their PCB goes, the ASUS STRIX cards are considered S and A as far as their circuitry goes, basically they're good for shunt mods and that kind of thing.

    Of course I'll be running mine at stock and not overclocking so I'm good.

    Funny question now, so which brands are the best as far as GPUs?

    This is a good guide for 3080 cards, and it should give you an idea (as far as Nvidia is concerned) on which to avoid, and which to go for.

    Hardware Unboxed - YouTube

    Hardware Unboxed always has in depth reviews of cards. That channel was the main reason I got the Sapphire Nitro+ 5700XT... After seeing them breakdown almost every aspect of dozens of 5700XT, there really was only one choice for me. That's not to say it should be your only resource, but it should be included for sure!

    Already have one in there, but it is a bit older and not OLED so this will be replacing it. :D
