This is basically a follow up post on Advice / sanity check on I9-9900 build with Samsung Evo SSD

The comments I got on that post made me consider a Ryzen system, as this is a different build I thought it's better to start a new post.

I've never build a system from scratch. I added graphics card, usb 3 & upgraded memory in my current HP Elite 7100.
replacing I5-760, 16GB ram, msi gt 970

My main questions are
  • Is this selection making sense ?
  • Can I do with the supplied CPU cooler or do I need to replace that
  • Are there items I'm overspending on wasting money that could be better spent elsewhere ?
Requirements
  • quiet
  • reliable
  • futureproof, I'd like to be happy with this system for the next 4-5 years
  • not for gaming but will try some
  • probably won't try (much) overclocking
  • considering upgrading ram to 64G in the future (2-3 years)
  • will run Windows 10 professional + HyperV virtualized linux systems
  • maybe dualboot Windows10/Linux
I'm pretty clueless about which video card I should select, want something decent. based on previous comments and reviews select a RX580 card
I have a Dell - U2715H 27.0" 2560x1440 60 Hz Monitor monitor, might add second monitor in the future.

RX-580 should be better fps/$ than gtx-1660ti or rtx-2060, but if you need more performance than an rx-580 can provide, then those are really your only choices. Really cannot recommend Vega series right now cause their about the same price as RTX competitors, but more expensive overall and significantly more power hungry. GTX-1060 should be brought out back and shot for the prices it currently goes at so forget about that one. If you don't mind not playing max graphics at 2560x1440p then go with RX-580. If you need to play at higher in game graphics options, the get a GTX-1660ti or RTX-2060, depending on what you can afford.

ye makes scene but 4 a few bucks more u can get a hugely better gpu the rtx 2060 more future proof has dlss and weak rtx (still better than no rtx)
or the 1660 ti an even better gpu than rx 580 butslightly weaker than rtx 2060. the 1660 ti doesnt have rtx but comes with all the other nvidia features and much more cost effective and can still game at max settings for a moderate amount of games but will get the job done


sidenote the rx 580 isnt bad if u like it go with it so rlly ur choice
