1. What YOUR PC will be used for. That means what types of tasks you'll be performing.
120hz gaming, Unity VR programming

2. What YOUR budget is. A price range is acceptable as long as it's not more than a 20% spread
~$2500

3. What country YOU will be buying YOUR parts from.
USA

5. IF YOU have a brand preference. That means, are you an Intel-Fanboy, AMD-Fanboy, ATI-Fanboy, nVidia-Fanboy, Seagate-Fanboy, WD-Fanboy, etc.
Intel/Nvidia

7. IF YOU plan on overclocking or run the system at default speeds.
Default

8. What resolution, not monitor size, will you be using?
3440x1440

9. WHEN do you plan to build it?
ASAP, but prefer MicroCenter parts as I live relatively near it

10. Do you need to purchase any software to go with the system, such as Windows or Blu Ray playback software?
No

NOTES:
  • I planned to pair the PC with an Alienware aw3418dw 34" monitor, GSync 3440x1440, OC to 120hz, 4ms - unless there is a better recommendation for monitor.
  • I'm not sure if the RTX 2070 is enough to power the pixels, maybe I have enough in the budget for 2080.
  • I'd like to do mATX build if possible.
