Hi ussiel,
Welcome back.
I am surprised one of the configurator gurus has not been by.
That is a real nice system and you are already using the faster NVMe storage and an excellent gpu. I am not familiar with AMD cpu and others will tell us how it will work with your intended use.
Enjoy. Big%20Smile

Thanks. Do you think its worth upgrading to the RTX2080 super for future 4K/VR? Will there be much of a difference over the RTX2070 super?

thanks

StrongYou are asking the wrong guy, as some will confirm LOL. If you are going to spend $$$$ on a fast 4K monitor, there is IMO only one card to get at the moment and that's the 2080Ti. The 2080 SUPER is a very good card but the opinion seems to be that the 2070 SUPER is the sweet spot on perf/cost. And 2K right now is the best.
I hope the members with the real knowledge come by and give you better advise.

Stronger video will always mean better performance. If it's for the future, my experience is that the best you can afford then will be better than what's out now. Right now though, there is a discount going for you that offsets most of the extra investment. If you can manage that, it's an opportunity that likely will not be there down the road.

Get the very best GPU you can afford now for this build.    The RTX 2080 Ti is the undisputed best choice if you want to game in 4K and do VR at the highest settings and max frame rates.     The new RTX 2080 Super would be able to handle 4K and VR, well, but probably not at top settings...yes you would notice a difference between those two top cards.

You would also notice a big difference between RTX 2070 Super and the RTX 2080 Super.   Both cards offer about 15% improved performance over the former 2070 and 2080 models.    NVidia has not increased the 2070 Super price accordingly, making it a good midrange value choice.

A word about quiet and your case choice.     For any gaming rig to run it’s best, you need best possible cooling and strong airflow.     I hate to see customers using a case with fewer fans because they think it will be more quiet.     Truth is the Lumos case would likely be just as quiet (I own a Lumos) but much better for airflow as it has more fans in the best spots to cool your components.     Keep interior dusted and use the best quality Corsair fans in your build and any of the case choices will be very very quiet, but being able to see inside the case means you are more likely to see dust buildup...and keep it clean.    Clean fan blades make less noise.

Would it be worthwhile to wait until the 3950 comes out in September?

There’s always going to be something coming out around the corner that’s latest greatest...   I think at some point you weigh the value in using well tested currently in field gear vs the new unknown.   Sometimes the devils that are known can be far preferable to those as yet unknown..... I would not wait.     Gaming is more GPU centric, so more processor cores isn’t going to do much for you in gaming....

Thanks for the replies.

I don't care about the lighting at all, which corsair fans would you choose in the Lumos case?

thanks,
jim

Reminds me of the old saying:

If you're always waiting for the ~next~ thing,
You'll never have ~any~ thing.

Never a bad idea for new technologies to build a track record before you commit to them. Remember how some of the new 2080ti cards had problems around launch that took a couple months before they even admitted a problem existed?

The Corsair LL Series fans are excellent with the Lumos my son uses and very quiet.    The Corsair ML Series are Corsairs top of the line that have Magnetic Levitation bearings for long life.   Either of those would be my choices for the Lumos...which is actually the Corsair Crystal Series 570X mid tower ATX case.
Excellent cooling case and very very quiet.   Makes your rig something to be seen.

No worries about overheating your M.2 NVME drives...they are so tiny and thin compared to standard sized SSD drives or HDD drives...smaller than a pocket comb!    Located flat on the motherboard they will not overheat in any properly cooled and vented case. Great for gaming or anything else.   Many people would like to be able to use the fastest M.2 NVME SSD’s for their gaming files but for budget reasons they often need to use less expensive drives.

The motherboard you selected has an "ultra-efficient" M.2 heatsink according to AMD. Most motherboards have these to be sure the M'2s don't get too warm and contribute to overall mobo/case heat.
