Hi so I've finally decided to pull the trigger on my new build, given that some prices have lowered and don't see anymore drastic drops in the near future I'm gonna just send it, also new job kinda gives me the ability to spend a few more dollars. https://pcpartpicker.com/list/qWH6hk Linked in the pcpartpicker is an r9 5900 + 6900 xt configuration. I kinda went with what was compatible and just what I wanted. I plan on doing heavy 1440p gaming, streaming and recording. I will also be doing editing and rendering work so I know I need the power. Only issue is I'm still novice when it comes to putting the right components to make the whole build flow right(i.e just found out 4 sticks of ram run better on ryzen than my current 2x8 3000) My current build is an r7 3800x paired with rx 5700 xt and crucial 2x8 3000 mhz. The rig does great for solely gaming but I realize it's not pushing the numbers I want when streaming and recording, this rig will go to my girlfriend for her zombies/league of legends gaming. I'm open to suggestions and input on any modifications I should make to the build before buying, it'll be paired with a 240hz 1440p monitor (most likely alienware) and my current 60hz 1080p BenQ, thanks in advance! Edit: I've looked into prebuilts and get worried about bloatware so I figured best to just buy what I know will show performance, but if anyone sees bottlenecking or a better route plz lmk!

Very much appreciate the input I put the parts into pcpartpicker (mainly cause I don't want to deal with a 3rd party vendor for any parts, especially gpu) with a case, OS, and 1tb m.2 it comes out shy of 250 lower than what I'm shooting for, I think this is a great route especially since I know Ryzens counterparts on intel run cheaper, but after seeing benchmarks on the build I think the AMD pair with SAM running might actually outperform the raytracing combo with the i7. Definitely gonna dig a little deeper and see if maybe a slightly different config on the intel build will outshine. But again thank you! I wouldve never looked into a build like this without your input. Gratitude.
