I initially spec'd this out thinking I wouldn't overclock. However, I think I'd like to have a go at that (I HAVE NEVER DONE THIS, BUT THINK IT WILL BE FUN TO TRY). Won't push too far as I don't think it really benefits the applications that I use which are Lightroom and Photoshop (correct me if I'm wrong). I know in some ways, its overkill - especially on the SSDs, which I intend to use in the following way:
- System and Programs: Samsung 970 Evo 500 GB M.2-2280 NVME Solid State Drive
- LR Catalogue: Samsung 860 Evo 250 GB 2.5" Solid State Drive
- Images: Crucial MX500 2 TB 2.5" Solid State Drive
- Other files and data: Samsung 970 Evo 1 TB M.2-2280 NVME
Would appreciate feedback on if that's a decent way to organize the drives.
Also, is the memory I selected OK for overclocking? I think I could get away with a GTX 1660TI, but went with the RTX 2060 since I think this will future proof my system better. I will be using my two existing Dell U2410 monitors.
A couple of other points (and these may be contradictory to overclocking), but I'd like to keep the noise levels down and also minimize the expelled heat into the small office space I'm in (which soon gets pretty warm if I close the door).
Edit: I’ve changed the PSU: EVGA SuperNOVA 650W P2 Power Supply
