I'd say it's probably absolutely fine for gaming but if you really wanted to upgrade it, you could go to a 3600 and/or a GPU upgrade

I ment the X370 (COD edition) sorry I'm still going crazy looking at his home gaming system.

How does he have an 1800x and a Z390? anyways, that is still a valid system, I would wait for the 4000... sike, the 4000 series in not supported on 300 series chipsets, thus the best possible upgrade path would be something like an R9 3900X, or better value (and much lower price) a 3700.

Everything else seems quite good, sure the dual RX Vega 64 is a bit wonky and I don't get why he didn't go for a GTX 1080 but hey

He did that for the part time mining, he doesn't run it in crossfire for gaming, apparently he say amd cards are better for mining?

well, that is odd, but for mining AICs are far more efficient than a GPU
