  • Just about everything looks pretty good except two things I could see.  First not sure if it was intentional and if it is feel free to re-adjust but you didn't have a case in your link there.  So I removed the 500gb inland m.2 and put a fractal meshify c case for 99 in there.  Second, while the ram you picked is by no means bad the set I picked is same frequency and cl but for 17$ cheaper.  Other than that I believe everything you have chose will do fantastic for what you want.  If tax becomes to much the easy places to cut corners and not really effect performance would be going to the R7 3700x, the performance is very similar to the 3800x but for a few bucks cheaper.  You could also drop the case down to a cheaper case and maybe save 20-30 bucks.

  • Thank you! I already have the meshify c at home so great pick! My thought on adding a 2nd cheap SSD was to prevent the P1 from filling up too much since it tends to slowdown when close to full capacity. Any suggestions on a nice keyboard? My preference is mechanical but quiet. If a have any budget room I might pick up a new headset too
  • Keyboards can be very much up to each person but I like Corsair's mechanical keyboards but I would suggest trying a few out by maybe ordering them on Amazon get them try for a day or 2 then if you don't like it sanitize and ship back since Amazon's return policy is fantastic.
