Doing massive upgrade and need help!

1 hour ago, Constantin said:

Primary M.2: SSD ADATA XPG GAMMIX S5 1TB M.2 2280 PCIE GEN3X4

RAM: RAM CORSAIR CMW16GX4M2C3200C16 VENGEANCE RGB PRO BLACK 16GB (2X8GB) DDR4 3200MHZ DUAL KIT

Wouldn't really recommend that DRAM-less SSD.

I'll recommend Silicon Power A80, Sabrent Rocket, PNY XLR8 CS3030 instead.

16gb 3600mhz cl16 ram from gskill can be had for cheaper than the kit that you have selected.

Stock cooler does a fine job, but if your budget permits then you can get DRP4.

So im upgrading from an FX-8350 system to a Ryzen 9 3900X. I could use some help choosing the best parts within a 1500 dollar budget. So all i really need is a mobo that can support plenty of HD's and at least 3 PCI-E slots if not more.I want 32 GB's of ram. I also want to upgrade my primary drive to something like a 1TB M.2 as well.
So what i need help looking and choosing for:
Motherboard
Ram
CPU Cooler

Primary M.2

 

That's all i can think of. SO any and all help/input will be appreciative!

for 1500$ i dont think your going to get that. the cpu alone i believe is like 550$. amotherboard that supports "lots" of Hard drives would be like 250$+ assuming a lot to you means 10 sata plugs, that much ram would be 400$+, m.2 would be 100-150$+, cooler could be 100$ if you get a good one, e.t.c
