Silent Cerberus (upgrading) - seeking advice

6 minutes ago, StrawberryShortCakes said:

1. Should I get a 4tb internal hdd or external hdd for my steam library? (which is a better option) 

internal 10000rpm or 7200rpm if possible. ssd would be ideal.

2. I'm waiting for the release of the rtx 3070 before I decide 3070 or 3080, from what I heard the cards need a psu with a minimum of 800w is it true? (might need to upgrade the PSU if needed.) 

3070 should work with a 550W psu, 3080 with 650W, but might work with 600W psu as well, if you don't overclock (150W cpu, 350W gpu, 100W rest of system)
