I am thinking of buying these parts during cyber monday or black friday.

  1. Will you do video editing? 7700k is definitely not the best choice imo.

    yeah i will be doing video editing, thought 7700k would be good enough.

    Thanks for helping me avoid that disaster :D

    Might go for the ryzen build.

    Does the ryzen build not need a cpu cooler?

    Ryzen comes with a decent stock cooler and suffice for decent overclocking :) My 1600 is @ 3.8 with stock cooler.
