Hey, from what parts would you build a personal computer if money was no objective?:)

 

P.S. Only widely commercially-available PC components allowed; no NASA stuff, lol.

Well on a personal basis what I have right now is very good.

I really love my Ryzen 7 1700 processor, my Asrock AB350 motherboard is fine as I dont really need SLI.

Maybe better speed ram, maybe trading up my GTX 1060 for a 1080Ti and get a m.2 SSD drive but nothing much else.

I would not be very interested in threadripper as while its a great platform I am quite happy being on the non enthusiast grade hardware as my performance is already top notch.

I said 'if money was no objective', yet you still opt for 1 smaller SSD and 1 bigger HDD. Dude, why not treat yourself and go for the 5TB overkill single SSD?:)

Don't need one  :apple:   I also refrained from specifying a custom case made from gold bullion, although actually, that would be quite nice  :tophat:

Given Threadripper's typical 5-10% 'too many cores for it's own good' gaming performance deficit, the 1700 was likely a far better choice, as is Z270 over X299 and 7900X, etc...

 

TR4/1950X could be an intriguing budget ESXi host for VMs given the cost of 18-24 core Xeons, however...; but such missions are best undertaken with other people's money.

 

Trivial 'Food for Thought' for the Windows 10 Pro crowd: did anyone know that if the Hyper-V 'role' is installed, really Hyper-V is now what runs, with the Win10 Pro install converted to and running neatly as a VM afterward? Darn interesting, is it not? :)
