My friend's old PC fried so he's getting a new PC but he wants really good components because he doesn't want that to happen again and he chose these parts

What advice would you give him?

Personally I think he's spending way too much on everything that isn't the CPU and GPU

$2k budget yes to OC no to sli/xfire

  • no need for a PSU like that.
  • no need for a mainboard like that
  • the 3800X yields barely any benefit over the 3700X, it's a waste of money
  • free up funds for a better GPU
  • Samsung Evo is just poor value compared to other drives

👍Definitely a better option. For the budget and the high end components I'd try and grab some higher clocked ram if possible.
