Seems nice.

RS-A00-80GA-D3 might be the PSU. It's single rail should keep you from the troubles you have with your older 1KW PSU.

The SSD is bleeding edge on price. That's a new low price.

Frankly I don't build high end AMD systems any longer since my client demand no lockups and perfection. For some reason AMDs tend to be less stable and require more tinker time and hand holding then 2 years pass and well, the stories are out there. We will build what they want but hangs and BSODs on AMDs are legendary. Not that Intel is immune but we had far less troubles there.

Should I do more ram than 16G? I do use photoshop and video editing software.

Have a look in task manager to see how much RAM those applications use during typical use.

I doubt you'll hurt anything but there might not be much 'bang for the buck'.

So what would you typically use more than 16g?

- Collapse -

If your asking when would you use more than 16GB of ram I suppose serious multi taskers might find it of value.

I don't think there are many apps where you would see much of a difference between 16GB and 32GB.
