I'm building a new comp since it has been more than a bit since my last build. So I was hoping you all could take a look at what I'm thinking and tell me if I'm ******** up anything particularly egregious. My roommate's also going to be building the same system, so definitely want to do it right the first time.
Motherboard/CPU combo: AMD Ryzen 7 2700X + MSI X470 Gaming M7 AC Motherboard Bundle
RAM: Patriot Viper 4 Series Extreme Performance DDR4 16GB (2 X 8GB) 3200MHz
Case: DIYPC Skyline-06-WB Black SECC ATX Full Tower Computer Case
PSU: EVGA SuperNOVA 850 G1+, 80 Plus Gold 850W, Fully Modular
HDD: Seagate 4TB BarraCuda SATA 6Gb/s 256MB Cache
Blu-Ray: LG 12X Blu-Ray Disc Drive
OS: Windows 10
Optional(Roommate requires GFX Card, I may not, see below)
GFX Card: MSI Radeon RX 580 DirectX 12 RX 580 ARMOR 8G
SSD: 500GB Solid State Drive
1)One thing I noticed while posting this was the the HDD was only a 5400rpm. As I understand it, Seagate is a pretty good brand, yes? I found an even larger Toshiba that does 7200, but the cache is smaller and I'm not too familiar with whether Toshibas are decent.
2)On the solid state drive: Would I find noticeable increase in performance if I grabbed one of those and used it simply for running the OS and maybe storing photos/etc while using the main drive for games and everything else?
2a)If not, would there be any real problem running the OS off of a 5400rpm 1TB drive I already have(unused, I'd put it on my shopping list last year when I first started thinking about upgrading and someone got it for me for Christmas)?
3)This is my current GFX card. I bought it last year and am thinking for my personal build I'll just cannibalize it out of the older comp and use it in the new one. Based on the Tom's Hardware list here, it sounds like the one I have listed won't be enough of an upgrade to justify upgrading now at the cost. I'm not missing anything, am I?
4)I'm planning on upgrading the RAM in a year or two and went with only 16GB for now so I can allocate more funds to the Mobo/CPU, which are much more of a pain to upgrade. Things I've read suggest that should easily hold me over on all but the most bleeding edge games. Am I wrong on that?
I welcome suggestions, keeping the following in mind. I am dead set on an AMD processor, and I want it in a bundle to avoid a repeat of what happened last time. I rather like the look of the tower, but am open to suggestions, though both my roommate and I really want full tower cases(more room to work in, and more room for air flow). Also, I definitely want at least 3TB on the HDD.
