Hi,

I am new to PC, I left when it was Windows 97 and started Mac. I never had problem in OS, drivers.... I mean smooth system, never got system error in my Mac OS life.

Please see this... what you think, these specifications are ok with windows 10.... for work and render.
Because I am seeing at other forums, mostly are driver issues, dont install this... update this... installation issues which makes me crazy in work. And I saw... its make so noise and need extra cooling.

Your suggestions will be mark-able and appreciated.

Thanks.

Looks pretty awesome, only thing id say is that power supply is way over kill.

You can check here for what power you need:

Advise from others who have used this particular hardware is also probably required here

Looks good, but like James said, the power supply is overkill, you only need something like that if you plan on running 3 graphic cards in SLI or similar.
A good quality 650-750w would be more than enough.

No need for anti virus these days, windows 10 has built in windows defender which kills everything else on the market in terms of protection - best thing is you barely notice its there.

In terms of system crashes etc, it should restart itself. My advice regarding updates is let the computer update itself when it needs to, if you update it manually most of the time you will get a beta update which can bork things from time to time - but you can also uninstall the latest update if its causing any issues with your software.

Do not forget to check RAM compatibility with MB

Any reason you want that chassis instead of "Fractal Design Define R6" except that it is a full tower, takes more space, cost more, is 6 years older etc? :)

You could also check if you can find "Samsung 970 Evo Plus 1 TB" that was released 2 days ago instead of the one you have there if the price different isn't to much, it's faster. r3500MB/w3300 MB/s instead of r3400MB/w2500MB/s
