I’ve been looking at building a PC for quite some time now, and I think that I’ve finally finished picking my parts and am just about ready to build it. However, I wanted to get some feedback on the system I will potentially be building. There aren’t any peripherals on that list, because I already own a monitor, mouse and keyboard. I use those for when I’m not on the move with my laptop.
I plan on running either Mint or Ubuntu, so Linux compatibility is a thing. Dual-booting into windows or running it through a VM will come later (adding another GPU w/passthrough is the long-term plan). I plan on using the rig for some gaming (DOTA, Diablo, RPGs, and Indie titles), Photoshop, and occasional video editing (just for kicks).
Here is my current build, if you think that I should get one component over another or wait on a newer version (e.g. Ryzen 2) the feedback would be much appreciated.
