Hello everyone, I'm looking to buy a PC primarily used for gaming and some video editing. I'm trying to get a build with at least a 2080. Anyone have the best build around this budget?

Thanks in advance!

   Welcome to the forum Agalito !

Ok, you are a little light on price to get a RTX 2080 for that in a solid build...show you a few builds. The RTX 2080 with a strong cpu should slay in gaming on most monitors in 4K Or 2K. ..

$3053....Lumos custom Config # 2265730.    a very good Asus Strix mobo, an excellent i7-9700K overclocked 8 core cpu with free Stage 1 overclock, DS Stage 2 240mm cooler, 16 gb DS RAM, fast m.2 Samsung Evo NVME 500gb Drive, 2 tb data drive, 750w PSU, the excellent RTX 2080, upgraded Corsair HD case fans, free RGB led case lights

$2732....Lumos custom Config # 2265746....MSI Gaming mobo, good i5-9600K 6 core cpu with free Stage 1 overclock, DS Stage 2 240 mm cooler, 16 gb DS RAM, fast m.2 Samsung Evo NVME 500gb Drive, 2 tb data drive, 750w PSU, the excellent RTX 2080, stock Corsair RGB case fans, free case RGB lights.

$2510.....Lumos custom Config # 2265738.....good MSI Gaming mobo, still with excellent i7-9700K 8 core cpu with free Stage 1 overclock, DS Stage2 240mm cooler, 16gb DS RAM, fast m.2 Samsung NVME Drive, 2 tb data drive, 750w Corsair PSU, very good RTX 2070, stock Corsair RGB case fans, free case RGB lights.

See what you think. Play around with components and see what you can do...

The 1st build is solid with an RTX 2080...only scrimping on a little better fan upgrade and better Corsair 240mm cooler.. Would play most games at ultra settings.

The 2nd build still very good with an RTX 2080...drops to a 6 core i5 cpu and MSI Gaming mobo to save you a few bucks. Still a strong build for gaming at high or ultra settings...just not quite as strong a cpu..

The 3rd build retains the excellent i7-9700K cpu, but drops to a RTX 2070 card to hit your pricepoint. The RTX 2070 can run most games at high settings and is a popular sweet spot middle level card for gaming...

I forgot to mention that I was really looking for a GPU from AMD. Sorry about that

You did say you wanted a 2080....That’s an NVidia GPU...lol. DS is an NVidia shop.
If you really meant a CPU from AMD ...here is a strong Ryzen CPU build...with an NVidia RTX 2080...

$ 2975......Lumos Config # 2266157

If a AMD GPU is really the goal....I do not believe DS uses AMD graphics cards these days at all, but you would need to know which one you wanted and ask DS sales about that....

Do you think Digitalstorm will make this build?

i7-8700k
750 watt
astrok z370 pro 4
480 ssd
2tb sata
2x8gb corsair DDR4-3000
RTX 2080.

It seems to have good benchmark results, but digistorm does not have a configuration available for this build.

The only thing you want that's not available in a standard DS build is the ASRock motherboard. The Samsung 970 EVO NVMe SSd fits the bill as your generic "480 ssd", and is a top-end part.

If it's worth it to you to specify that motherboard, DS will special order it and build it the way you want. It will cost extra, but probably not a whole lot, and the whole build will wait until it arrives. IMO, there's nothing particularly special about that mobo that would warrant extra cost and extra wait. Resaerch it?

Up to you. Call sales and get all the info.
