Help perfecting a new build?

Built myself a new rig. Would appreciate help smoothing out any components that might bottleneck or any other issues you might notice. Edit: Please note I already have an 120 GB SSD, a 2 TB HDD, as well as peripherals.

I would just get faster ram, shoot for some 3200 rather than the 2133

Would the Corsair Vengeance LPX 16 GB DDR4-3200MHz do the trick in your opinion?

This might be a little better, also dropped the wattage on the psu

That's the RAM I went for. That might actually be the build I made because the parts are basically the ones I put in except for the new power supply!

If you already have a 2TB HDD, why did you include another one then?

A combination of being on mobile and being new to the site. Whoops!

you need at least a 650w psi for that build..... 430 is WAY to low

I should have a 750 w supply in my current build. Does RAM also look good?

PC Part Picker says everything is compatible, but if you notice something, let me know please! It looks good to me but I've thrown this together pretty quickly.

Wow they pay so much in Canada.... I like the build by the way.

If anything I would say it's not about the speed of the ram but about how much of it you have. 2400 to 3000 there is like MINIMAL performance difference. 16 is perfect for gaming if that's the focus of this build.

If you want to save a bit of money you can go to lower speed and not see a noticeable change in performance honestly.
