Note: A little bit info about me and what I do with my PC
I have two monitors, main is 1080p 144hz, I play games ( a lot of them is unoptimised, early access and I think CPU heavy, for example : Path of Exile, Rust, Monster Hunter World, MC, Terraria, PUBG, LOL... And time to time Dark Souls 3, Witcher 3 and I plan to play Cyberpunk). And while I play games I always have chrome open with some kind of Twitch stream on and few tabs.
My plan is to have this PC for at least 4-5 years.
CPU: I've heard a lot of good things about Ryzen cpu's and it multitasking power but I'm little bit worried about single core power.
COOLER: Actually I don't know maybe this is overkill for me, but I do have some plans of overclocking my cpu, but nothing crazy.
GPU: I think 2080S is overkill for me and my 1080p 144hz monitor, I don't have plans to switch it to 1440p unless it will broke.
MOBO: Just picked random, I saw a lot people picking this mobo, but my problem is that I will be putting 2 m.2's
STORAGE: Picked same hhd that I have on my old pc, didn't have any problems with it. Now with m.2 ssd I want to have two of them, I will be using one from my old PC SAMSUNG SSD M.2 2280 500GB 970 EVO and one new one, I saw people picking this intel 660p that is budget friendly but I wonder how is durability. Or I have other plan go with regular ssd not m.2 and that wouldn't require me to change this MOBO
CASE: Maybe some recommendation? Better air flow etc.
RAM: Picked random, I just know I have to go with min 3200hz cause Ryzen benefits from them, is 3600hz even worth it?
PSU: No idea, but I don't have any problem with Seasonic that I heard is really good psu's, my problem is that my local shop only have FOCUS series that saw some comments isn't great.
Forgot to say that my budget is around $1800~
And... I think I'm done, appreciate all tips.
EDIT: sorry, forgot to say that I'm planning to sell my old one, I'm only keeping it that m.2 ssd
