NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3090 Ti Build

When you're playing with one of the most powerful cards available, you make a build that's just as powerful. Our GeForce RTX 3090 Ti build pulls no punches, ensuring everything runs fast, smooth, and, most importantly, looks good doing it.

ProcessorIntel Core i9-12900K Alder Lake 3.2GHz Sixteen-Core LGA 1700

When building for the best, use the best. And the Core i9-12900k is certainly among the best Intel has to offer. With a whopping sixteen cores and 24 processing threads as well as DDR5 support, the 12900k is the perfect companion to the GeForce RTX 3090 Ti.

Don't forget a cooler - grab an AIO like the MSI MAG CoreLiquid 360R V2 360mm RGB Water Cooling Kit and keep your CPU temps low!

Motherboard: ASUS Z690-F ROG Strix Gaming WiFi DDR5 Intel LGA 1700 ATX Motherboard

When putting together a build for the GeForce RTX 3090 Ti, the big focus of your motherboard should be DDR5 RAM support. Thus, the ASUS Z690-F, featuring not only DDR5 RAM support, but also PCIe 5.0, multiple M.2 slots, and onboard Wi-Fi. Not only are you ready for the cutting edge now, you will be for a while yet.

Graphics CardEVGA NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3090 Ti FTW3 Black

Obviously, the focal point of the build, the EVGA NVIDIA RTX 3090 Ti FTW 3 s everything you could want in a GPU and then some. An earth-shattering 10752 CUDA cores? Yup. 8K HDR support? Check. PCIe 4.0? of course! Second generation Ray Tracing, DLSS, and VR ready? Yes, yes, and yes. BFGPU indeed.

RAM: G.Skill Trident Z5 RGB 32GB (2 x 16GB) DDR5-5600 PC5-44800 CL40 Dual Channel Desktop Memory Kit

You're building a powerhouse of a build. Don't skimp on your RAM. 32GB of DDR5 RAM is the bare minimum for a build like this, and it will take advantage of every extra bit of speed you give it. Plus, a little RGB never hurts.

Hard Drive(s): Samsung 970 EVO Plus SSD 2TB M.2 NVMe and Samsung 870 EVO 4TB SSD

Absolutely no old-school HDDs for this build. For our main boot drive, we want a blazing fast Samsung NVMe with 2TB of space - more than enough for an OS and a couple regularly-used games and apps. Then for more storage, we've got a standard 4TB Samsung SSD. Still lightning quick, and perfect for everything else.

Power Supply: Corsair HX1200 1200 Watt 80 Plus Platinum ATX Fully Modular Power Supply

A 1000 watt power supply is the minimum recommendation for the GeForce RTX 3090 Ti, but it's always a good idea to add a bit of wiggle room to your build. Plus, an 80 Plus Platinum certification will help ensure that your PC is running both efficiently and safely.

Case: Fractal Design Torrent Tempered Glass ATX Mid-Tower Computer Case - Black

You've put together an incredible build. It deserves an incredible case. The Fractal Design Torrent is sleek, stylish, and minimal. Perfect to hold your all your components (with fantastic airflow!) without overshadowing the true centerpiece of your build: the GeForce RTX 3090 Ti.
