This is already with budget extended past original goal of BGN 2000. Goal is to store large volumes of data, stream occasionally and game. My main consideration was the case - I don't think the 30 BGN savings of the FD Core models are worth dropping the sound dampening foam of the Silencio. I also don't think downgrading to a 1660 Ti is worth it considering the performance delta and NVenc. I deliberately chose the WD Reds for the sake of data protection (it's important for the person) and the speed is irrelevant - they're coming from pretty ancient drives with crap cache and firmware. I guess I should throw in a cooler of some sort.

Seems good but I recommend the rx 5700 https://www.newegg.com/msi-radeon-rx-5700-rx-5700-mech-oc/p/N82E16814137466?nm_mc=knc-msnsearch&cm_mmc=knc-msnsearch-pc-_-pla-_-video+cards+amd+ati-_-msi-_-14137466&msclkid=b07684ff361011b5316cda5873faf4dc&gclid=CPuos5y-iekCFe4AfwodwicDiw&gclsrc=ds

I am NOT a professional and a lot of the time what I'm saying is based on limited knowledge and experience. I'm going to be incorrect at times. 
My build:
CPU: 10700k Oc'd to 5.0 ghz                            GPU: RTX 3070 ventus 2x
Motherboard: Asus z490-v                                Cooler: Deepcool castle ex 120mm
Ram: Team tforce delta 32gb 3200mhz cl16     Case: Phanteks p418r (p360a ripoff) 
PSU: Apevia Prestige 800w

Notes:
Spoiler

To me the 10700k seems pretty underrated. It's a very solid cpu. at 5.0ghz it draws 175-185w under full load. the Asus z490-v is a sh*t teir motherboard, I wouldn't recommend it for anything past a 10600k for light oc's only. Tforce ram is pretty but cpu cooler clearance can be an issue on them, so beware. the RTX 3070 is obviously a great card, but the ventus 2x is just horrible. Don't buy it, not now, not ever. It's flimsy af, you can't increase the stock power limit, the cooler is worse than the one on the 3070FE. If it's a choice between this and nothing, choose nothing. The deepcool castle ex 120mm isn't really on sale outside of prebuilts, but it's a nice pretty cooler, gets my 10700k up to 96c after a prime95 cpu test for 15 minutes. The p418r is basically what it looks like. P360a, slap a few cyberpowerpc logos on it, and you're golden. The Apevia Prestige 800w is bad, but not terrible. Runs respectably quiet and isn't a bomb. More than a lot of PSU's in prebuilts can claim.

I've had nothing but good experience with Reds, mind elaborating?
Also - 32GB is out of budget range.

WD has done some shady stuff on new reds under 4tb.

Pretty irrelevant for the use case imo

no it isn't. If you plain on raid 1 they may drop out. you'd be better served by 1 larger HDD if you aren't running a raid 1. like a 4-5tb X300

they also perform pretty bad pretty quick

Nobody is planning on using RAID at any point. The idea behind them is extra layer of redundancy - if one were to fail, the other could still be used.

then just get 1 larger drive now and add a 2nd down the line or do it right and backup externally to offline .

The whole reason behind this is to have a back-up. Offsite back-ups aren't an option in this case and a larger dirve isn't feasible either since 3TB models would bloat the budget too much.

I am yet to see any reason to do so. Again, this is not a RAID drive or an OS drive. It's a standard storage drive. It's not going in a NAS or a server - it's going in a typical PC. I'm not really keen on going for Purples so that leaves Reds as the only feasible financial solution. Unless there is a reliability concern or a significant performance issue with typical consumer tasks, the SMR scandal couldn't bother me less.

WD reds perform badly and these new SMR do even worst and random writes and large reads.

Barracuda models are notorious for high failure rates - they were never even considered.
X300 aren't available in the region
Black models are double the price.

 

Again, the options are Red (non-NAS models, the PCpp link has NAS models for some reason) and Purples

Arguments about HD aside...

 

When I click your link, I get a different CPU and many items are not priced.

 

I did this list which filled in the blanks, but comes $1600.

 

Were you planning on buying the parts elsewhere which is why you put $1400 as the price?

Prices are from Bulgarian etailers - not the US. Some components aren't available and others are :D

Well that list I provided, if bought in Germany, which has all those items I listed, is 1051.44 euro, which according to the currency convertor is 2057.87 BGN.


As a EU member state, goods and services should flow freely so shouldn't be too much in the way of costs.

 

I got a TV shipped to me from Germany to the UK and it wasn't small, and it cost me £8.61 (20 BGN)...and we aren't even in the EU anymore! lol

I've been in contact with multiple retailers. Barracuda failure rates are over 3:1 when compared to any other OEM or model - this also factors in volume sold. They are horrid.

Ah, well, my price also factors in assembly, BIOS update and OS installation which is free when shopping locally and I'm off-site so I can't handle that part myself :D

@GDRRileyonly options are WD Blue, WD Red or WD Purple. Anything else in the desired capacity is either too expensive, not available or also on the SMR list.

WD Blues are also on the list (checked the model) except they have 1/4 the cache and cost almost the same. I also lose 1 year of warranty. Same 5400 RPM SMR-based affair. Why go with them?

I also found a 5900 RPM IronWolf drive with horrible user feedback. Think I'll skip that. Skyhawks are the same deal as Purples and I'd like to not get Surveillance HDDs for general use. And there's a super low-end Toshiba P300 that I wouldn't personally buy considering the mediocre performance.

WD Blues are also on the list (checked the model) except they have 1/4 the cache and cost almost the same. I also lose 1 year of warranty. Same 5400 RPM SMR-based affair. Why go with them?

I also found a 5900 RPM IronWolf drive with horrible user feedback. Think I'll skip that. Skyhawks are the same deal as Purples and I'd like to not get Surveillance HDDs for general use. And there's a super low-end Toshiba P300 that I wouldn't personally buy considering the mediocre performance.

ironwolf drives are good.

the P300 is SMR

User feedback seems to disagree - people reporting problems and returns. So since everything is SMR, I guess I'm keeping the Reds.
