    I thought as much. Even when he can't reach for Ryzen 7 1800X processor that is trending but that rig is quite up for any multithreading application as well as gaming.

    Cool, though only really beneficial for gaming.

    There's debate on whether or not SLI and Crossfire are worth the aggravation to get it set up properly, and how well it can work once you do. Some think you can get as good with one GPU than with two (for the time and money).
    Currently, Nvidia has all together dropped SLI support.

    Additional consideration would be that SLI/Crossfire depend on a powerful CPU to feed the GPUs fast enough. The little APU might be too weak (at least the IPC), so the system won't profit from the second GPU.

    Nice, you think 500 GB HD is enough? I'd personally start it with at least 2 TB

    depends on what you plan on doing with your pc, if your going to do video's then a 2 tb drive may not be enough. A 500gb is good for just normal usage, pics, tunes and daily surfing stuff

    yep as say Joec C depends I personally ever used (in times of HDD) shrink partitions for example with 500GB HDD I reserve 100GB for partition C: for Windows exclusivelly and 400GB and for all my files, videos, musics, softwares etc and all works fine; after I move Documents, Downloads, Musics, Videos all for partition D: today I use SSD for Windows and 1TB HDD for all above mentioned :)

    I usually have a backup of 1 TB(for important files) and 500 GB for everyday routine trivial files to external hard disk drives. I just save whatever I like to the small SSDs on my systems.

    As far as back ups go, I have read that backing up on an external storage drive and encrypting your files up to the cloud is a better option. Thus you have two back ups available to you to cover any damages to your external drive and anything that could happen on the www.

    @Joe C: I agree. I back up my source and music projects to a thumb drive as well as on a cloud. I also make an incremental backup of the entire system on a 1tb drive I have.

    My main drive is a 512 gb SSD, which runs pretty nicely.
