Need Help Choosing Parts

First Comment
edited October 2020 in Help Choosing Parts
I put this parts list together and am looking for some advice.
Looking to build a PC instead of waiting for the PowerSpec prebuilts to come into stock. From what I can tell this is what I'm interested in building. Don't need an i9 as an i7 is plenty enough for me. Heard 3200-ram is the sweet spot in terms of ram speed. 

Edit: used mainly for gaming, won't be streaming, budget $2,000-$2,700

    I think you've got a solid build here! I'd recommend getting another 1TB SSD, either M.2 or 2.5 if you plan to have many games installed. Otherwise, I'd recommend a 7200 RPM HDD instead of the 5400 RPM that you have selected. otherwise, I think it's perfect for your budget!

    To your point, yes, I've found that with current hardware 3200MHz RAM is the sweet spot for price and performance. 3600MHz does offer some improvement, but typically it's a diminishing return on value.
