    What is your overall intended budget for the build?

    Hey Ian. Looking to spend no more than 3500ish range. I’ve gotten i9-13900K builds as low as like 2300 to 2500, so I just feel kind of lost with where to go at the moment. 

    Heart tells me i9-13900K and 4070ti or something similar. The rest of the parts, I am not knowledgeable enough to choose and compare

    Sorry for the delay in reply, honestly with either set of part combos - whether it be AMD/Intel processor and 4070Ti video card - you would be looking at basically top of the line gaming PC regardless. Are you looking to use the PC for anything else?
