Question Help evaluate upgrade of WFH PC

Jul 30, 2020
I’m planning on upgrading my PC as I’ll be working from home for the foreseeable future. I’ve picked premium parts (I believe) and I would love input. Not even sure this will work.

I’d like the PC to be fairly quiet. That’s the only consideration. The cost of the upgrade here fit just inside the budget I have (company paying part of it).

Here it is:

New components

  • Case: Ghost S1
  • Motherboard: Gigabyte B550I AORUS PRO AX
  • CPU: Ryzen 7 3700X
  • CPU fan: Noctua NH-L12 for Ghost S1
  • Memory: Corsair Vengeance LPX (2x16Gb) 3600 CL18
  • PSU: Corsair SF750
  • Chassi fans: 2 fans from Noctua, not decided yet
Parts brought over from old PC

  • GPU: Asus GeForce GTX 1070 Ti 8 GB ROG STRIX
  • SSD: Samsung 850 EVO 500Gb 2.5”

I’m planning to build this in a Ghost S1 case, with medium top-hat to fit two exhaust fans in the top.

The GPU and the SSD drive are the only things that is brought over from my old PC, everything else is new.

PC will be used for programming, mainly, with some occasional gaming on it.

Will this work? Any general thoughts? Comments? Anything I should consider?
