Thoughts on this build?

I currently have a very VERY old gaming pc that has a few modern parts with it. Im having all sorts of issues so I want to transfer the parts I currently have into this new build. Before i go spending 1k on parts maybe i could get some advice or feedback from you guys? Are there any compatibility issues here or am i buying any products that are going to be a headache with this setup? The parts in the new build without prices have already been bought or will be moved from the old pc to the new one.

Currently Im trying to go for a bit of an all-in-one build. My interests include video capture and recording, game streaming, video editing, and I also do some file hosting / sharing. So while im not specifically looking for a "gaming PC" anything between that and a media processing PC would be what im going for. Any advice at all would help me a lot. Thank you everyone

Not a bad idea! Definetly falls in the price range im interested in. If i may ask: whats the reasoning behind the list? Would i be better off with a better video card instead of an 8 core CPU?

For gaming, you should definitely invest more towards the gpu than the cpu. Also, at the present time, games tend to favor clocks over cores which is why I selected the 9600k.

& just to note - make sure you put the OS on the ssd and use it as the main drive.

Makes a lot of sense, thanks for your help! I already have a hybrid SSD and its running Win10 so ill be good to go on that front

Ok I would still recommend an ssd as it's so much faster, but if you don't want to get an ssd, a hybrid drive will work ok.

or the R7 2700 - newer with higher boost frequency than the 1800x - same amount of cores/threads, whole bunch less dough.

better b450 motherboard

500GB SSD - cause, reasons

16GB RGB ram (3600mhz is probably faster than you need, 3000-3200 probably the sweet spot for performance / dollar).

h500 black / blue is the s340's successor. I swapped to it because it's a bit cheaper than the s340.

NP! Happy to help. =)

You'll notice we both upgraded you the RTX 2060. It drastically outperforms the 1050ti in gaming workloads. I know you mentioned that gaming wasn't necessarily your primary function, but this is a better GPU to pair up with your R7 IMO.

Not sure how patient you want to be, but the next gen of Ryzen is supposed to come out later this year, most seem to anticipate Summer some time. Might get better bang for your buck at or just after launch.

Though I can totally understand not waiting as well. =)

Most people can't even justify the 2600 (6 core) so why would you even go ahead with the 1800? (8 core). not to mention pairing such a high tier cpu with a 1050ti isn't a great idea.

So compiling all of the helpful advice some of you gave here's my final build list, I've done some research and I don't believe there will be any issues with this setup but if you have any ideas feel free to comment :D I should be ordering parts in a week or two
