PC Build Recommendation (under $2000, Already Own a Graphics Card)

Hey guys,
I'm looking for a PC Build recommendation with a budget under $2000. I already own a graphics card (a 1080ti) so that won't be needed in the budget. However, I will most likely be upgrading the graphics card by the end of this year to something newer and high end so I would prefer the other components to be relatively complementary in performance to something like an RTX 3080.

This PC will be primarily used for gaming. The most intensive games I would like to be able to run would be Cyberpunk 2077 and Doom Eternal.

  • For storage I would like a 1tb nvme SSD.
  • For a case, I would prefer it to be in the mid size form factor.
  • I would like 16gb of RAM as the minimum.
  • For the CPU, at least a 6 core CPU from either AMD or Intel preferably.
  • I don't really have any preferences for motherboard, PSU or type of CPU cooling.

    • SSD do be kinda whack
      And there's not much point in spending that much on a CPU cooler
      X570 isn't much better imo than b550 for OP's use case

    What GPU do you have first off.

    • A 1080ti.

  • I'd like to know what games you'll be running.

    • The most graphically intensive thing I would be running would probably be Cyberpunk 2077.

    MSI MAG X570 TOMAHAWK WIFI AMD AM4 WiFi 6 ATX Motherboard
    AMD Ryzen 7 5800X 4.7GHz 8 Cores 16 Threads AM4 CPU
    Ekwb EK-AIO 240 D-RGB 240mm ARGB LED Liquid CPU Cooler
    G.Skill Trident Z Neo 32GB (2x16GB) 3600MHz DDR4 Desktop Memory Kit
    Samsung 970 EVO Plus 1TB V-NAND 3500MB/s NVMe M.2 SSD

    You will have $ spare for other things, but it's a good base value for money build.

    • I didn't even notice "Uskompuf" post above till now and noticed we both selected the same Motherboard and CPU

  • I saw something about prebuilts being sold for cheap minus graphics card. Probably bought by miners or people looking to profit off the resale of the gpu.

    take out the GPU 6700XT resell on ebay for $1k - $1.3k

    then your pc would have cost $800 to $588
