Are you able to push that budget further to secure the Ryzen 2700X? It's $50 more for an impressive boost in clockspeed performance at stock + a higher turbo boost clock to get the best out of the 8-core AMD chip. Also comes with a beefier cooler worth around $30-$40. The budget flex here would also require a X470 mobo for a more refined support vehicle to keep that boost clock from throttling. Alternatively, if overclocking is of interest, drop the 2700 for the 1700X and pair it up with a beefier cooler as both chips deliver the same performance.

If you are tight on budget, "depending on your requirements", you could potentially drop the secondary storage HD for now for a later upgrade.

I'm assuming your 8-core endeavour is a well-informed one. If it's gaming only and basic use-case scenarios, the Ryzen 2600X excels in those workloads.


Besides the above "options", the rest of build looks FANTASTIC! Maybe a couple of case fans to add?

i've considered more case fans, but we'll see how good the cooling is when i get it,

now that you've said that i'm most likely going to get a 2600x and upgrade to a 2700x (or it's future equivalent) when i know i'm going to make use of the 8 cores, because as of now it's only a thought
