Hello folks, been a while since I've been looking at the PC market so I could use some tips. :)
I'm a software developer looking to upgrade my personal machine. I generally use visual studio (mostly C++) and Unreal Engine for work/hobby stuff as well as a couple of other things occasionally like Blender, GIMP, or the Adobe Suite. Therefore, having several cores and lots of threads is a must for this build, but I also like playing games (hence the CPU choice) and don't want to sacrifice clock speed too much. I've given myself a budget of $2000 and as you can see I'm a little over, wanted to see if anyone has any suggestions without compromising too much. I'm in the United States, and won't need an OS or peripherals (though if you can find a nice 140hz monitor with a decent resolution and size that'd be a cool bonus). I'm not set on the 1080ti, but they're kinda nice. I also have a bit of time to sit on this so if you can suggest a better time to look at the market, that would also be a helpful.
