    Hi guys, the time has come to update my aging rig, and i am looking for some advice.

    My current rig:

    Corsair AX1200 PSU

    3770K @ 4.5GHZ

    Gigabyte Titan X (Maxwell)

    Samsung 830 256gb SSD

    Gigabyte GA-Z77X-UP7 Motherboard

    Corsair Dominator Platinum 2133 MHZ 16GB DDR3 Ram

    Win 10

    NZXT Switch 810 Case In White

    • I plan on keeping the case and PSU, so i do not need this for my new build.

    • Use is purely gaming at 2560x1440 165hz(as close as possible anyway).

    • System will be used primarily for Monster Hunter World for the foreseeable future.

    • What i currently have chosen:
    https://au.pcpartpicker.com/user/Shadyxx/saved/M8bXP6

    • I am contemplating not purchasing the 1080TI and waiting for the 11xx cards to be released, and possibly still building the rig and using the Titan X for the time being, thoughts on this?
    Any advice would be appreciated, i do not wish to go custom water cooling at this point in time, i understand the benefits of it i just need the simplicity of the aio units currently.

    Thank You for your time.

    It looks good. I would probably spend less on a motherboard and water cooler and buy a bigger SSD.
