Hello people,

Short story. I work in a field which makes me hate my life. I want to start trying programming (bought some courses on Udemy) and some bitcoin trading. Seeing that the prices for GPU's are incredibly high at the moment, i want to go for the 5600G. I also would like some advice when looking at programming. Do i need 1 or 2 monitors?

The build:
MSI MAG B550 TOMAHAWK
AMD Ryzen 5 5600G
Corsair Vengeance LPX (16 GB: 2 x 8 GB - 288-PIN - 3200 MHz - CL16 - 1.35 V )
Samsung 980 Pro 500 GB - Solid state drive
CORSAIR RMx Series RM650x - 2018 Edition
be quiet! Pure Base 500 Black - Midtower

My main questions:
-I assumed 500GB would be enough because coding is the storage intensive - is this true?
-Corsair vengeance a good fit?
-Any idea's about the motherboard?
-1 or 2 monitors? (assuming the 5600G combined with the tomahawk max can use 2 monitors - 1 displayport and 1 hdmi)

Any advice for me?

Don't spend extra for the 980 Pro. Get a larger midrqnge SSD. For programming, I would recommend 32GB. Why? Because you will probably end up running VMs for testing.
Definitely two monitors.
