Mid-Range AMD Zen 3 / RDNA 2 Build

Budget (including currency): $2000.00 (US)

Country: Untied States

Games, programs or workloads that it will be used for: Cyberpunk 2077, Half Life Alyx, Adobe Creative Cloud Suite

 

Other details: Peripherals will be spread across two neighboring desks (image attached). These include:

  • Samsung 34-Inch CJ791 curved monitor
  • Samsung 65" 8K TV
  • external 12TB HDD
  • Two Kensington fingerprint readers
  • HP Deskjet 1112 printer
  • Canon CanoScan Lide 400 scanner
  • Cooler Master SK621 60% Keyboard (RGB)
  • Logitech Hero Sensor wired mouse (RBG)
  • Logitech G Pro keyboard (RGB)
  • Logitech M705 wireless mouse
  • Logitech K400 keyboard/touchpad
  • Logitech T650 touchpad
  • Logitech BRIO Ultra HD 4K Webcam
  • Logitech G930 wireless gaming headset
  • Vantek external blue-ray RW drive
  • 2x Anker USB 3.0 desk hubs
  • Microsoft Xbox One wireless controller

My new build [1] will have a 850-watt PSU so I'm hoping this will this be enough to avoid any sort of power issues between my many peripherals while multitasking and/or occasional overclocking. I do intend to get a VR headset at some point late next year. 

 

I am wanting to remove the top two front facing fans of the Master Cooler case and install the radiator.  Will the radiator (two 120mm fans) and 3rd remaining case fan (120mm) fit together? Has anyone done something like this?

 

I chose a mobo with Flashback for convenience. I chose a 2tb main SSD to boot Windows,  use local Google drive files, and launch a few games quickly.  I will get a 2nd M.2 for an expanded game library later. 

 

I haven't bought the GFX card yet. I plan to build the PC without it, update the BIOS with Flashback button, install Windows, then install the GPU later.  Hopefully this plan will work?

 

The GFX card and Samsung monitor both have displayport 1.4; also, the GFX card and 8K TV both have HDMI 2.0. So I hope to utilize these new interfaces. Will I be able to have an extended display setup between these two displays? I plan to play 1440p games on the curved monitor and play 4k games on the TV (not simultaneously).

 

Given my PC partpicker list, does anyone foresee issues regarding e.g., BIOS update strategy, display playback, power consumption, RGB/ARGB synchronization, VR, hardware compatibility? Also, constructive criticism is welcome.

Thanks but I already bought the 5800x. Also I need a 2tb main SSD. I'll install an extra sata later though. Based on my research, I feel more comfortable with an 850 watt PSU; can you justify your choice to go lower (especially given my large peripheral set)? Can you justify your reasoning for switching my ram? I thought 4 sticks would be better than 2? Oh, also I should mention,  I need a mobo with flash back..

That's all you need for your peripheral's. so 650w is enough.

For ssd, 1TB is more than enough if you don't install games in it. Even 500gb is enough.

4TB HDD for $79 is stupid cheap. If you wan to have larger storage HDD is still the better option.

Better get 2 sticks of ram, leaving 2 empty for future upgrade.

Thanks. So, I found some suggestions elsewhere saying to double the estimated wattage from PC part builder. Is there any merit to that?

 

Also,  wouldn't it be [significantly?] better to have the primary game library on an M.2 NVME PCIe?

The worse power usage pc (10900k + RTX3090) is using 550w total.

So with Ryzen 5900 and RDNA2 have lower power requirements, i think it will survive 650w.

Games on nvme? yes why not? If you think using SSD for gaming is okay, then do it.

Personally i would leave 1-3 of my active games in the SSD and the rest of the old library in the HDD.

I would rather have 20-30% of the SSD empty to prolong its lifetime.
