Is this a good build? https://www.microcenter.com/site/content/custom-pc-builder.aspx?load=c35b9e9a-4111-47a4-9861-1f075aac34bd
Hello @LeeChavez and thanks for posting on the Microcenter Community Build. The build you've listed, all the parts are good; but what type of PC are you wanting to build.
32 gb of RAM is overkill unless you are planning to do video rendering, photoshopping or CAD designing with 100 browser tabs open.
If you are just wanting to game, 16 gb of RAM is more than enough. For gaming you won't need 3 hard drives. You could go with the M.2 SSD as your primary drive and a internal 4TB SSD (not hdd) as your secondary drive for all your game storage.
Again how are you wanting to use the pc build? The water cooling kit may not be needed depending on how you plan to use this build.
Give us some details on what type of pc user this build will be for and we can share more thoughts on the build.
@LeeChavez Okay gaming. Yeah you drastically can reduce your cost of this build for gaming. The Asus Rog M XIII is good board, but you would have to go with an Intel processor over a Ryzen chip if you go with the ASUS ROG M board. The CPU has to match with board (ex., LGA 1151/1200 vs AM4).
If you want to go with the build at $2400, that's fine. The AMD build you currently have listed is fine. But some areas where you can reduce your cost is by lowering your RAM from 32 gb to 16gb. Go with 2 storage drives. The M.2 SSD as your primary and the 4 TB but as a SSD not an internal Sata HDD.
The Wratith AMD stock cooler, is a good cooler. What type of games do you plan on playing?
You may not need the water cooling kit.
@LeeChavez okay, yeah 16gb of RAM is more than enough for those games. The Wraith cooler is enough for those games as well, but you could still go with the water cooling kit if you like. With that being said, I recommend to stick with the Ryzen AMD processor.
@LeeChavez For gaming go with the Intel I9-10900, but if want the best rated Intel chip, go with the I9-10900K version if can spend the extra money.
@LeeChavez the ASUS ROG Crosshair is a good AMD, Ryzen cpu board. It will do well with any nvidia 3000 series card (ex, 3070).
@LeeChavez no problem, anytime. Post again if have any more questions.
