Welcome, Dolphinman, you're in the right place.

Good looking set-up as far as it goes, but there are a couple of pretty necessary changes, and a couple of questions.

It should not have been allowed for the configurator to not red flag your choice of the 600W power supply. It's simply not enough juice to power the 2080 Ti GPU. What I recommend is the Corsair RM850x. Ten year warraty and said to be one of the quietest PSUs you can get.

You absolutely want a Samsung M.2 NVMe SSD for your primary drive. The DS SSD selected is a SATA drive, fully 5x slower than an NVMe, which uses the PCIe bus. The EVO PLUS is the latest and greatest, but the PRO is also very good, and it's unlikely you would perceive much difference between them.

Questions:
Are you sure you need to spend that massive difference for the 2080 Ti? You don't mention the monitor resolution you're gaming at, but the 2080 SUPER is not as much of a step down as it seems from the price difference. At 1440p, the 2080 SUPER averages 122 fps across a wide range of games. The Ti average is 139. Doesn't seem like a $495 difference to me. Just sayin'.

Unless you're into some serious sound reproduction on high-performance speakers or cans, the on-board audio for most modern boards is all you need. Gaming audio is hardly filled with subtle nuance you only get through a sound card.

We don't recommend GPU overclocking on air. More heat means more frequent fan activity, which can be noisy.

The "disable and tweak" option is an artifact left over from the days when RAM was such a limited amount, Windows would sometimes require too much and slow down the other operations. Those days are loooong gone, and there is nothing Win 10 does that will interfere in any way in performance. Not knowing what gets disabled and what gets tweaked seems to be an invitation to trouble IMHO.

Hope it helps.

For anything 4k, the 2080 Ti is the best choice. Hope your experience here is the best! Let us know how it ends up
