I want to build a gaming PC with
GPU: Gigabyte PCX GeForce GTX 1080 Ti Gaming OC 11GB GDDR5X DVI/HDMI/3xDP DX12 RGB WINDFORCE3
CPU: Core i7-8700K Coffee Lake Six Core 3.7GHz LGA 1151 12MB BOX w/o Cooler
32gb ram


But, I have problem with the other components, since I am not really into these things. What motherboard should I buy, that can be compatible with the RAM, GPU and CPU i listed above?
Power supply?
What case?
Cooler?

Sorry for ignorance.

What is your maximum budget and in which country will you be purchasing the parts.

I am from Southern Europe, Macedonia to be more precise. There are pretty good computer stores here, and the products's prices don't differ too much from the ones in USA or other countries.

Have a look at the builds on Logical Increments here
I used this site when picking out my upgrade kit for my new system.
I also got a i7-8700K and i bought the MSI Z370-A PRO and DDR4 memory modules
For CPU cooling I bought a "Cooler Master Hyper H411R White LED"

I got a "Corsair builder series cx 750w" PSU, but my recommendation is to buy a TX model instead, i will when i got the money...
When it comes to the case i got a "Antec Nine Hundred Two V3 ATX Gaming Case Black" since way back, and i am really happy with that case, a littel bit on the heavy side...

Hope that gives you some ideas...

For future reference, you might want to look at AORUS boards and NZXT cases. AORUS boards are made by Gigabyte and offer things you won't find on other boards. NZXT cases are beautiful and have one of the most beautiful cable management I've ever seen. Just some pro tips :)

It appears that this issue is resolved, therefore I am closing the topic. If that is not the case and you need or wish to continue with this topic, please send me or any staff member a Personal Message (PM) that you would like this topic re-opened. :)
