I think you are better off with Ryzen and 32GB of RAM is overkill for gaming. Unless, if you are going to edit too.

Amd ?

I do like AMDs, my last Gaming PC had a AMD Athlon 64 dual core... at the time they were one of the best Processors you could get...Those were the days Counter Strike till the early hours
32GB to much ? Ill save a few quid and get 16GB Memory..

Thanks

Hi,
You could not give me a corsair TX series psu but everything else looks fine except not sure why an i5 since an i7 would be best :/

Look into an evga G2 series psu in the 750w.

Just out of curiosity, what's wrong with a TX series PSU? I have one and it's performed flawlessly for almost five years.

I'm not being snarky. I really am curious. Maybe I should replace it with something else?

On topic:

I would go with an i7 or a Ryzen CPU myself. And I would stay with the Nvidia GPU if you can afford it. The 1080 ti is pretty pricey around where I live. 16 GB is more than enough for gaming.

Do you really need the second M2 drive? Or can you get by with a standard SATA SSD? If it's your second drive you may not need the speed that the M2 gives at the extra cost. You might save a little money with a plain old SATA SSD.

Hi,
I guess it was mainly a sort of thing that I can afford better and so I sent it back to get a better rated rather than settling for a gold plus the wiring was pretty cheap looking too seeing I had already used a evga p2 series which is awesome so I just changed my mind and sent the TX back
Personal preference mainly I suppose
