Advice for first build

Fuzzw4d

56 months ago

Here it is, my $4,500 everything-er computer, gaming with settings maxed, video editing, (some) 3D modeling, and programming. As the title says, I need advice. I've gotten it down to what I want, I just need to know if I need any extra things or change any bad brands. Thanks in advance! https://pcpartpicker.com/user/Fuzzw4d/saved/#view=Y9Cv6h

Any input? I'm somewhat desperate... :P (I hope bumping isn't against forum rules, The only rules I saw were the ones on the side.)

Not to sound desperate (even though I do) I really do need some opinions.

You can di what you want with A LOT cheaper build...

No need for (2) 120GB SSDs. A single solid state drive 240 - 256GB size should perform better.

Unless he is running it in raid-0? Maybe he needs them separate.

Factored that possibility and trying to be polite.

I'm confused how stating what said is being polite?.... Am i missing something.

I had the 2 120GB SSD's to separate my OS from my other things, in case of viruses. (I don't even know if viruses can switch hard drives, so it may be completely baseless. Also, I'm not planning to do a raid-0 setup.)

Typically virus and malware targets the operating system. Off the top of my head, don't see any benefits of having multiple solid state drives for the sake of virus/malware protection.

Oh, okay! I'll go change it. Thanks for the input!
