1080p gaming and productivity.


I'm planning to upgrade my pc.  Goal is to play AAA titles at 1080p and do some 3D/CAD modelling.
I'm mostly interested thoughts on cpu and motherboard(the more I/O options the better), probably i would like to upgrade gpu in future sometime.


So here is my list:

PCPartPicker part list: https://pcpartpicker.com/list/6MrZmq
Price breakdown by merchant: https://pcpartpicker.com/list/6MrZmq/by_merchant/

CPU: AMD - Ryzen 5 2600 3.4 GHz 6-Core Processor  ($164.99 @ Amazon)
Motherboard: ASRock - B450 GAMING-ITX/AC Mini ITX AM4 Motherboard  ($84.00 @ Newegg)
Memory: G.Skill - Ripjaws V Series 16 GB (2 x 8 GB) DDR4-3200 Memory  ($175.98 @ Newegg)
Storage: Samsung - 850 EVO-Series 250 GB 2.5" Solid State Drive  ($107.89 @ OutletPC)
Video Card: Asus - GeForce GTX 1070 8 GB Dual Series Video Card  ($439.89 @ OutletPC)

Power Supply: Corsair - RMx (2018) 650 W 80+ Gold Certified Fully-Modular ATX Power Supply  ($99.99 @ Amazon)
Total: $1114.09

Am i on the right track or there is room for improvement? I don't have specific budget but i'd like cheapest option that i could get away with.

seems good to me, that ITX board is the one id go for personally so i can say id recommend it. nothing seems out of place to me but you only have 250gb of storage so a storage upgrade would be the first one on my list or just getting a 500GB SSD to start with. AAA games take up 100gb because screw optimisation and all that good stuff so a 1-4 TB HDD would make a nice addition im thinking. 3D models arent tiny either afaik

I spent $2500 on building my PC and all i do with it is play no games atm & watch anime at 1080p(finally) watch YT and write essays...  nothing, it just sits there collecting dust...

"Here is some advice that might have gotten lost somewhere along the way in your life. 


#1. Treat others as you would like to be treated.

#2. It's best to keep your mouth shut; and appear to be stupid, rather than open it and remove all doubt.

#3. There is nothing "wrong" with being wrong. Learning from a mistake can be more valuable than not making one in the first place.
