Buy the memory in a matched set.

https://pcpartpicker.com/product/Xbc48d/corsair-vengeance-rgb-pro-32gb-4-x-8gb-ddr4-3000-memory-cmw32gx4m4c3000c15

For the 3D molding depends on the specific program your going to use.

Video card depends on the monitor your going to use.

Your build could be good or really bad, i really dislike the drive setup.

You can do either it's all up to you. I had rather build my own so I can use quality parts that I pick. Their also nothing wrong with buying from a Company like Dell but I would avoid cyberjunk, ibuyjunk and places like that along with the no name brands from Amazon and Ebay.

Anouther option would be order the parts and have a trusted local PC shop build it for you.

Part of the build is not very good, H motherboard with a K processor, slow 2400 cas 16 memory, 850 model SSD this was probably reused, average power supply, probably reused the cooler also but should do since you cant overclock with the H motherboard.

Depends on where you live.

I would not consider a AMD build. If anything to make it cost less you could drop down to a i5 9600k and loose the RGB fans.

You have the LT to stream with so the 6 cores would be fine for gaming and editing.

I agree you can buy a 1080ti for almost half the price and get fairly close to the same performance. Certainly not far enough off to justify the price increase.

Yes you have massive overkill.

Over 600 bucks lower in price and more like it using the monitor you picked and what your using it for. I see no reason for the bluray but left it in. The CPU cooler is 38 bucks on Newegg.

, so there's a lot of power going to waste in between what your system is using and what is being drawn

Your talking nickels and dimes.

At 182 watts that power supply is still almost 88% less than 2% difference in running it at half load. The 88% is still in the gold rated area so wasting electricity yes if you count the nickels.

https://www.hardocp.com/article/2015/01/05/rosewill_capstone_750w_power_supply_review/4

I've found a lot of people on this site that need to have more real world experience. The way you were saying it he would be wasting a massive amount of power when in reality no not really enough to even count.

When you move to Adobe you would probably be better off with a i7 8700 for the faster single core speed. You can make a argument either way, more cores or faster single core performance.

Your going to need a drive for internal storage. External is fine for backup but that is it.

Your not going to get close to 144hz on a 4K monitor on modern games the video cards are just not up to it.

Look at the 4K benchmarks with the top of the line 2080ti. 60FPS is more realistic.

I use the 2K monitor for work and gaming and the other for side programs.

Gets you a better processor, and 16gb of memory, the WIFI is built into the motherboard. A SSD would be nice but you can always add one later I would get the performance parts first.

The processor has about 14% better performance.

The case comes with the fan controller up to 5 fans.

I would top mount this cooler and mount the 3 rgb fans on the bottom of it no push pull needed the 2X 140mm fans get mounted in the frone.

Gives you a better drive setup, better video card, 360mm cooler all for a lower price.

Go ahead and move up to the 8 core 9700k. You could move on up to the 9900k if you wish but it's probably not needed but still at the same price point you originally had.

I might also reconsider the monitor 49" is very large. The bigger the monitor really the further away you need to be. If I was in the market for a new monitor this is what I would get as of right now. 850 bucks right now is a very good deal.

IPS, Gsync, 120hz

You will need 4gb more of memory for gaming. If you can get a student copy of winfows you can build new for right at the same price after you add more memory.

6 cores should do everything fine. If you were streaming game play more cores or hyperthreading would help.

Just 8gb of memory is not going to do running the game and graphics.

Your using older hardware for some reason and with the 8700K you get 2 more cores. Overkill on the memory speed.

The motherboard has 7.1 channel sound the sound card only has 5.1 channel sound. With any decent motherboard sound chip you will match or get better quality than a cheap sound card.

The headphones your buying is only 2.0 channel so your not going to hear anything but the normal left and right side.

Is it really faster for what your going to be using it for. OS load times NO unless you call 0.5 to 1 second faster. It is faster for running synthetic benchmarks that have nothing to do with real world performance for your uses, or doing a ton of file transfers.
