Looking at building my own PC (Hows this spec?)

  StuBurt 13:59 16 May 2020

So I am looking to purchase components for a new PC I currently have some components available and trying to add to them to complete something that will last and that I can upgrade over time.

Please look at the below spec would love some ideas on what to change or if you have a completely different idea i am all ears. (If you could please keep in mind I am going for a white theme)

Already Have: GPU: RTX 2080Ti Founders Edition RAM: 4x 8GB DDR4 Corsair Vengance LPX 2666MHz 1TB SSD - OS 2TB SSD - DATA

Looking to purchase: CPU: AMD Ryzen 9 3900X Mother Board: Asus Prime X570 Pro CPU Cooler: Corsair Hydro Series H100i Case: NZXT H510 ELite Power Supply: Corasir RMx White RM750x

I am not an expert so if i'm missing something please let me know.

I hope you can help :)

If your budget can stretch to it replace the OS drive with a NVME M2 drive of the same size.

The M2 drive is a lot faster and the speed of the drive will matter as the next gen consoles will support ultra fast storage.

On the PC side it will mean that game engines will also become reliant on fast storage to load all the textures and elements required in real-time.

You can replace the second drive with an M2 down the road if required.
