In an inexplicable stroke of luck, a friend ordered a nice x299 motherboard and received two of them by mistake. They told him to keep the extra, and now he's offered to send it to me. Unfortunately I can't find a Skylake-X CPU - all the places near me are sold out, and I'd rather do business...
This WC build will be for my 7800x. Wish me luck :)
Case *TBD* but the cases top on my list will support the below build.

There seem to be a LOT more options going on than when I last upgraded (2008).
I am eyeballing the 7800x and an ASUS Strix x299 board.
I edit and render a lot of video and play a lot of VR games.
My current PC has an ASUS P6t with OC's Xeon 5670 @4.2GHz.
1 - Is the X...
