    Get a bigger case and you could fit 3 maybe even 4 Titan RTX's. You could use 128gigs of ram.

      Check out Linus' old Compensator videos. More CPUs and GPUs may work well in some areas, not in games.

    I'm a total complete noob. Funny story short: I blew cpu fan header and fan. I typically use a "floor fan." Since poor people such as I couldn't afford these, I use whatever I can to make it run. 6 months later, I am cleaning the cpu and heatsink. Bent 6 pins on an AMD Phenom ll X4 2.8GHz 4 core. My reaction: Noooooo! I drop the life span on the cpu so bad to the point that I have to start looking for another motherboard and etc. Note: I bent the pins back the way it is-ish. It still runs but can't play excessive games. T-T
