You might get more responses here: https://linustechtips.com/main/forum/18-new-builds-and-planning/

 

That being said the build looks fine for gaming and general use (if that is its purpose).  You shouldn't need thermal paste because it will come pre-applied to the cooler.  You can probably use a lower wattage power supply to save some money and put it towards more storage.

I mean whether you should go Intel or AMD depends on your workflow, but alright if you wanna be short on words lets be short on words.

 

Memory configuration is too weak, Ryzen needs high frequency, low timing memory to extract its full potential, furthermore 8gb ain't "workstation" level.

 

500gb of storage total ain't near enough, you'll require at least additional secondary HDD for larger files, you can achieve this by getting a better priced boot drive.

 

There are far better PSU alternatives at that price point, your system will function perfectly fine off a good quality 550w unit.

Hmmm ok. I was thinking I could get the good psu so I could run a crossfire later and so I could over lock (mebbe)

Ok more ram is a good idea but I’m ok on storage: I’ve got a 4tb external hard drive.

I would drop the 2700x for the 2700 and just overclock it yourself (plenty of videos and posts out there on doing this) Then you can put that money towards another 8gb of ram. You also need to change your ram to ddr4 3000 or faster. Ram speed is very important on Ryzen due to the infinity fabric. The good news is that going from 2400 to 3000 ram is about the same price maybe a a few bucks more. The PSU is also overkill.

 

This is more what I would recommend, but with the 2700x only being 30 bucks more you could consider just keeping it.

Ok is that ram good? I can upgrade to 16gb later but rn I’m on a much tighter budget

550W is still more than enough should you overclock everything that is overclockable in the system.

 

Crossfire? do not invest in dead technology, always grab the single best GPU you can afford.

 

Check out how awful and useless it is to go with SLI/Crossfire nowadays for gaming:

yeah, gskill generally uses samsung b-dye. they outsource it to the best generally. and as far as I know that's true with the aegis too. What is your exact budget?

If you're on a tight budget then drop that RGB RAM. I'd go with a higher frequency, and higher gig count RAM like a G. Skill FlareX stick set(which is "Ryzen Tested") over the Geil Super Luce. If you really need RGB RAM I guess your best bet would be 16 GB, 2x8 of Antec Memory Series 5. It's 99.99 USD I believe and you get 16 GB of RGB RAM that has Aura Sync functionality.

Good idea for the psu but I can’t go any lower than 650w, as I want to use a crossfire In the future

Don't generalize, G.Skill uses more Samsung D and E-Dies and Hynix modules than actual Samsung B-dies in total of their offerings.

Please watch the video above, on the latest games we had 1 game scaling good with Crossfire, then a few that scaled poorly and caused too much micro-stutter and then the rest actually performed WORSE than having a single GPU.

This is a better option imo. You get your RGB RAM at 3k Mhz, You get the same storage capacity(XPG SX8200 is 2% slower than a 970 evo and you can't even tell the difference in the real world), The GTX 1060 AMP! is a pretty good card, beats out an RX580, The NZXT H500 is a pretty nice case and I've heard good things about EVGA G2 PSU's.

Depending on your work if its not really gonna benefit from an m.2 you could save like $50~ and get a sata iii ssd

True but, PCIe is substantially faster than SATA III. Only reason I'd get SATA III SSD's would be for mass storage but with how affordable good M.2 PCIe SSD's are, unless good SATA III drives get much cheaper, low GB SATA III SSD's aren't really worth it other than for plain mass storage. I'd rather pay a 20 dollar premium for PCIe M.2 to have speeds that are around 400% faster over GOOD SATA III drives like the 860 evo. Plus, PCI m.2 expansion cards are here. Save money and buy M.2 SSD's as they go on sale (which they constantly do) throw them in the card and you've got a pretty banging storage option.

Yea but unless its going to make a noticable difference on workloads its not really noticable in basic windows stuff and games, and its the difference between spending $120 and $60

The random read and writes are significantly higher from what I've seen in benchmarks. Those 60$ SSD's are usually pretty crappy, some are as slow as their HDD cousins. M.2 will boot faster and you'll have an, overall, snappier system experience.

You won't notice a difference on that. Talking from experience when comparing an 850 Evo and 970 Evo. You literally won't. 

Mind you just no to confuse people, he is talking M.2 NVMe, not M.2 SATA. 

The ability to google properly is a skill of its own.

Nah all the ssds are on holiday sale, at least on newegg. And I egt theyre faster on paper and stuff but if you see a car speed by at 10,000 k/h and 11,000k/h at that point its not really noticable, same thing with the ssds. Unless your workloads can utilize that extra speed for like rendering or something it wont really be that big of an improvement
