The second card in NVIDIA's 40 Series has arrived! Today, the GeForce RTX 4080 was launched and, in honor of this fantastic mid-to-high-end card, we put together a build that won't just complement it well, it'll look really really good while doing so, thanks to a sleek silver and white theme running throughout!

Not sure what's new with the GeForce RTX 4080? Check out our breakdown over here!

The Build:

Processor: Intel Core i9-13900K Raptor Lake 3.0GHz Twenty Four-Core LGA 1700 Boxed Processor

Launched just last month, the new 13th gen processors from Intel continue to represent some of the best the tech industry has to offer, and the Core i9-13900K is no exception (check out our benchmarks if you don't believe us!). The 13900K is an incredibly high-powered processor and will work incredibly with the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4080, especially if you're using your computer for gaming and creative work. And, as always, don't forget a gorgeous white RGB AIO for cooling!

Motherboard: ASUS Z790-A Prime WiFi Intel LGA 1700 ATX Motherboard

Once you've got your processor picked out, you can really start to lean into the style of your build, and the ASUS Z790-A isn't just a pretty board to look at it - it's got a great feature set as well, with DDR5 support, 4 M.2 sockets, WiFI 6 support, and plenty of USB ports. Plus, it has a quick-release button for your GPU so you don't have to try and find the tab when you're doing your yearly clean (you do clean yearly, right?).

Graphics Card: MSI NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4080 Suprim X 

We're all here for the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4080, and boy is the Suprim X an absolutely gorgeous version of this card. With a clean silver chassis and minimal RGB lighting on the rims of the fans, it's going to handle your work and gaming with ample style. It's also the card we benchmarked if you want to see how it stacked up!

RAM: TeamGroup T-FORCE DELTA RGB 32GB (2 x 16GB) DDR5-5600

In keeping with a silvery-white build and subdued RGB, we have the TeamGroup T-FORCE DELTA. And not only does it keep on theme, but it delivers 32GB of ultra-fast DDR5 speeds. It doesn't take up all of your DIMM slots either, so if you need even more memory, you can double up to a whopping 64GB of high-powered RAM.

Storage: Inland QN322 2TB SSD NVMe & Seagate BarraCuda 4TB 5400RPM SATA III 6Gb/s 3.5" Internal SMR Hard Drive

No matter what you're doing, you're probably going to need a lot of space and some of it needs to be fast. That's why we're splitting storage into two drives. We've got a lightning-quick 2TB M.2 for your OS, important projects, and, of course, those ever-so-important games. And then for backup storage and everything else, we've got a 4TB traditional HDD so you don't fill up your main hard drive with stuff you're not using.

Power Supply: MAINGEAR IGNITION 1200 Watt 80 Plus Platinum ATX Fully Modular Power Supply

Between the Core i9-13900K and GeForce RTX 4080, this is a computer that is going to need a lot of power. The MAINGEAR IGNITION 1200 Watt delivers all the power you need, plus a bit extra so you have room to upgrade and add parts. It's also fully modular, so you can keep your wires clean and minimal, without having to hide a bunch of extra wires that your didn't use.

Case: Lian Li O11 Dynamic XL ROG Tempered Glass eATX Full Tower Computer Case - White

A stylish build is nothing without a stylish case, and Lian Li knows everything about stylish cases. With tempered glass on the front and side panels, you can show off a build that's perfectly on theme with the case itself: silvery-white with just a classy smattering of RGB for a bit of personal flair.
