    I have been trying to delete my last post for some days now, cant seem to do it, anyway i have 3 possible builds for a new PC, so hopefully this wont upset anyone.

    The PC would be for gaming usually RTS games, and games like Flight Sim 11 i already have a EVGA 1080ti and a ASUS MG28UQ, 4K (3840x2160) Gaming Monitor, 1ms,
    the monitor works well in all resolutions.

    I have no knowledge of overclocking so probably wont use it would be great if i could upgrade in three or four years, instead of buying a new PC, but this is probably not possible.

    Here are the three builds i have in mind.

    Yeah, I agree with Cisco001. The Intel CPU would perform better on gaming, but the boost of gaming performance would not even be noticeable. Also the fact that the i9 is really expensive.
