The recurring issue with Ryzen builds is the BIOS update is not optional. I see too many hit the counter it was just the BIOS that was out of date. Be sure you know about this and don't get scared off a simple step before you begin the OS install.
I just recently built a pc for gaming and photography use. More than I probably need easily, but meant to stay viable into the future from upgrades and advancements in technology. I wanted to build one that will last for many years as possible and be upgradable if it comes to that.
So this post is to get opinions good or bad, no fan boys please. As to what works, what doesn't or wont; and why please. I have researched the components and to the best of my ability picked according to budget and expected performance and/or future distant upgrades, to use for as long a time as possible.
