NEED HELP!

My Wife told me to make a gaming pc build and show her so she can start buying the parts. I was just wondering what input you can put into it? I'm not a big PC gamer, but trying to get into it. All your help/input would be appreciated. Thanks!

 
P.s the 32GB of DDR4 Ram isnt quite necessary.. Just kinda want it to be overkill and future-proof for me.
The smaller ssd would be for an os and any programs i download
The 1Tb ssd would be for games
and the 4tb harddrive would be for anything else.....wanted to go with a few 8tb hdds but that wouldve been too much,
 
Here is the permalink.
 
 
I'm thinking itd be good for me because i dont do too much gaming and its a simple build that id enjoy having for a long time.

Psu is probably overkill but that's okay.if you are getting 32gb ram you should get a single kit. 

CPU:R9 3900x@4.5Ghz RAM:Vengeance Pro LPX @ 3200mhz MOBO:MSI Tomohawk B350 GPU:PNY GTX 1080 XLR8

DRIVES:500GB Samsung 970 Pro + Patriot Blast 480GB x2 + 12tb RAID10 NAS

MONITORS:Pixio PX329 32inch 1440p 165hz, LG 34UM68-p 1080p 75hz

Get a X470 board with better VRMs, 450s aren't made for R7 chips, just compatible with them, kinda like the 760 boards back in the FX8 days.

 

I'd get two crucial drives, the 500GB one and a 240GB (for the OS) unless you want to bury that samsung in like a year

 

That's quite expensive for a non Ti 1080...

 

About the PSU... go for a 750 or 850 G2 or a gold rated corsair, because... who's coolmax? 1000W, bronze and for 99? I seriously doubt that thing can deliver 1000W...

 

ASUS X470-PRO • R7 1700 4GHz • Corsair H110i GT P/P • 2x MSI RX 480 8G • Corsair DP 2x8 @3466 • EVGA 750 G2 • Corsair 730T • Crucial MX500 250GB • WD 4TB

So why not go with RTX 2070 instead of GTX 1080? It is a newer card, performs slightly better and costs the same.

Thanks. I will look into it.

Also, I would buy a better power supply. A 750 W will be more than sufficient. Just buy something from a tier 1 or 2 from the list. I personally prefer EVGA but you can choose anything from the list and you should be good.

Buy something from EVGA. Their build quality is great and they have great support.
