      Hi, I was hoping I can get your opinion. I bought the exact same motherboard and ram, and I wanted to get the 2600, but they were sold out. I don’t want to overclock the cpu and keep it at stock, so I decided to go all out and a get a 2700X. It’s awesome, but what do you think? Bang for your buck? Did I make the right decision for longevity? My main motivation was to future proof. The 2600 was on sale for $170, and 2700X for $280, kinda expensive yea but that’s why I’m making this comment. Should I return it and get the 2600? I have like 10 more days to return/exchange. Thanks

      @H-Man PC No, GPU's will always create heat, but in a well designed case it should not be a problem as long as airfow is decent, (fans configured correctly), and the card is well cooled ie. ideally not a reference model, ie. like the RTX 2070 in this build is not.

              If to talk about efficiency, then if you do not need modern games or other demanding operations regularly - a cheap notebook or nettop will satisfy anything you need. Used PC with Core2Duo and higher is also a good option.

                definitely a fantastic job anthony! very well explained. i too watched a 30 minute video on something i know how to do, because it was entertaining. i hope to see more videos from you in the future.
                is there a list of todays components? that would be great as well as total cost of build. thanks!

                                    Actually the 2600 with 1660 probably doesn't even need an oc.. So I'm just going to leave it to preserve its life

                                              I thought that esd straps equalized the electrical potential between you and the machine? wouldn't connecting yourself to ground encourage more esd by just making your finger and easy path to where it wants to go anyway?

                                                          When I used to build custom computers for a living I often ran into not having enough standoffs and I would use wadded up foam from the motherboard packaging and shove it into places where the motherboard sagged. Worked like a charm and by it's nature did not incur risk of static discharge.
