My gaming PC

New decade, new hardware. A few people have asked what my system looks like, so here it is rather than repeating myself:

Type Item Notes
CPU AMD Ryzen 7 5800X I got lucky on this, I did want a 5900x or 5950 but this might actually be more performant
CPU Cooler Noctua NH-D15S I honestly meant to get a different model with 2 fans included, but it’s probably fine
Motherboard Gigabyte X570 AORUS PRO WIFI
RAM Corsair Vengeance LPX 32 GB (2 x 16 GB) DDR4-3600 32GB seems like enough nowadays, I often don’t use more than 18 currently
Storage Samsung 970 Evo 1 TB M.2 NVME SSD Boot drive
Storage Samsung 970 Evo 1 TB M.2 NVME SSD Personal profile drive, and WSL
Storage Crucial MX500 2 TB 2.5" SSD Rapid storage for video games
Storage Western Digital Purple 4TB 3.5" 5400RPM HDD Backup destination for my network, saved to the cloud with Backblaze
Storage Western Digital Red Pro 4TB 3.5" 7200RPM HDD Large games storage
Video Card Gigabyte AORUS RTX 2080 SUPER Didn’t want to wait for a new card, I’m bottlenecked on the previous CPU anyways
Case be quiet! Dark Base Pro 900 Rev. 2 ATX Full Tower Case It has a USB Type C on the front panel along with a Qi wireless charging pad! Neat!
Power Supply Corsair AXi 760W 80+ Platinum
Optical Drive LG WH16NS40 Blu-Ray/DVD/CD Writer Optical media is still useful, though not frequent
Case Accessory Vantec UGT-CR935 Card Reader And SDcards are useful too!
Operating System Microsoft Windows 10 Pro Got the Windows 8 license for free and the upgrade to 10 was free; why not?
Monitor BenQ PD3200U 32.0" 4k A solid 4K monitor with excellent colors, and a USB hub!
Keyboard Razer BlackWidow Chroma V2 Mechanical keyboard. Solid and puts up with my typing.
Mouse Logitech G502 Proteus Core
Headphones SteelSeries Siberia 650 Headset This was a gift, which I very much appreciate!
Webcam Logitech C930e Webcam
