I have been on a mac for 10 years , never had a prob until I got into Blender....Need a PC upgrade, I'm an oldie with not much PC savvy, when it comes to picking parts it feels like I have been dropped in the jungle, stark naked....I have come up with this build and would really appreciate any feedback from one of you guru's, thanks

For the cooling, either get a 240/360mm AIO or a high end air cooler. Ram, get DDR4-3200MHz dual channel ram kit. Get a better quality PSU, the MWE isn't exactly what I'd call, reliable. Seasonic make some good quality units. I'd look at the Samsung 970 Evo Plus M.2 drive.
