Hey guys,

Thanks for your time.

I agree, spend less on psu, get a 550 bronze tier unit. Spend more on RAM, Ryzen likes at least ddr4 3000.  I'd say start up the system with a 500gb ssd and get the OS installed and all that jazz.  Get a hard drive down the road when u need it to expand storage.

I'd say go for a 128 GB SSD and then get a 2 TB Hard Drive. Use the SSD as a boot drive and the Hard Disk to store all the other files. But if you're budget allows get a 32 GB Optane drive just so your could have better Hard Disk speeds.
