You could have gotten a RTX 2060 for the same price as the 1060.

Also, AMD promised AM4 till 2020. Idk Intel. And 3rd Gen Ryzen Rumors Seem Tasty. As an overall PC CPU Ryzen is better.

Rendering and modeling. Might need 16 GB of RAM for that. Also, that 590 might not be enough.

The CPU seems overkill, and the GPU might struggle at 144htz 1080p Ultra on a game like BF5. I heard it is more GPU intensive, correct me if I am wrong. Maybe 1080 (ti?) or 2070.

It ok, but no need for an aftermarket cooler. The included cooler is ok, even for mild overclocks.

Use Steam OS

(Cause the promotion of using Windows 10 unactivated, altho better, is not allowed.)

The GPU is just any RX 580 8gb used from Ebay. I found this model new for 119.

You don't really unless you have a lot of other windows open. 16 GB seems fine for just games and maybe 1-3 windows open.

Unless it is the exact same model and type and speed, it will not work.

Sometimes (Most of the time) not even ram from the same exact product line at the same speed with the same capacity will work.

Only ram in the same kit will work.

If from separate kits, its just hit or miss

Yes, All HDMI ports are the same. But there are different versions of HDMI.

Not only that, but there are also DisplayPort, and VGA, among others. 99.99% of the time there will be HDMI, but if you want something better, like DisplayPort, you need to have the ports on your mobo or GPU, and on your monitor.

You Need 16 GB or ram minimum for photoshop and streaming. Also, make it dual channel.

Ryzen 7 2700X is better for streaming and photoshop, as it has more threads with same cores at higher clock speed.

The GPU is fine.

The RTX 2070 is faster than a GTX 1070 Ti, but Ray Tracing is still not good enough. But maybe later on? Go for the RTX 2070.

For a small build, a blower style will be better. For Monitors, if you are going with Nvidia, look for a G-Sync Monitor. Then, look at the refresh rate you want. Some people are ok at 75hz, others prefer 90hz, and others 144. Also, make sure it has the appropriate port for your video card. And last, look at the resolution. Would you want 1080p, 1440p or 4k gaming? All this adds up.

In my opinion, FreeSync monitors are better and cheaper, But you need an AMD GPU.

Last, MAKE SURE YOUR GPU FITS.

Good Luck.

For ram have you tried the XMP profile (Or creating a custom overclocking)? Sometimes it is changed to minimum mobo support by default.

Why would you spend so much on RAM? The 2200G is only rated to 29XX, with some lucky people pushing it up to 3000. You should have just gone with the cheapest 8 or 16 GB if possible, as the Vega 8 uses up to 4 GB or ram when overclocked.

I wonder if it can run minesweeper 144p at 30 fps all lowest settings, overclocked.

I wonder if the OS fits in that SSD?

Thanks To Everyone Who Commented and Helped Me!

I will take all your opinions in consideration. I will just use some cheap, used monitor for now and save up for a better monitor later. I will also use the keyboard and mouse.

Thanks!

Also, If you are going with only an SSD, you dont need the 450 motherboard, as a 350 would be fine. The only significant advantage of a 450 over a 350 is the storage thing, and you use a HHD with that.
