Was wanting a threadripper build but cost gets a little higher than I am able to afford. So I am trying for ryzen 9 5950X build, here is my configuration so far.
I am open to any suggestions or ideas to help improve performance or cut back on cost while keeping performance high. I edit both photos and video and have been wanting to get into streaming so looking for a build that allows me to work fast and efficiently without bottlenecking from the CPU or GPU.
The build looks very good. I think choosing 64 GB of RAM is well worth it. The case you choose should give you plenty of room to work in as well as adequate airflow. You could swap the 6700XT for a 6800XT since you have the 5950x.
My other suggestion would be to remove the Blu-Ray drives. The case does not have an internal bay for these so you can easily go with some external Blu-Ray drives like these:
Thank you for your response and pointing out the lack of internal bays for the Blu-Ray drive, I will adjust the build accordingly.
As for the the graphics card online it seems to show the 6800XT listed still but designated as sold out above the select button even with the refine results "in stock" checked, so I'm a little confused there.
When items are listed as "buy in store" does that mean I can only purchase them in store?
They do have the 6900XT available at a pretty steep price though so I may just go shopping around and see what I can find elsewhere availability and price wise for the 6800XT and 6900XT.
Thank you again for your input and help, this is mostly for research purposes and I am planning on holding off on purchasing majority of the parts until the new year when hopefully GPU prices come down and they become more available.
If you see a product that’s listed as “Limited Availability” or “Locate In Store,” these items can only be purchased in-store and are unavailable to be reserved ahead of time. If the item is listed as "Limited Availability", you will have to visit the store for stock levels as quantities carried are extremely limited. In most cases, these are highly sought after items such as video cards and processors.
You're welcome for the suggestions! Please let us know if you have another questions.
