Greetings,
I am currently working to upgrade my Phenom II build that has performed well for about 8 years with a Threadripper 1920X. I was able to get the Threadripper for under $200 so I figured it must be time to move. I am not looking to overclock and am not a game but a heavy home office user. I typically have about 40-60 chrome tabs open on my two monitors, several word documents, excel spreadsheets, streaming music and occasionally a Gimp project. My old PC very often hit the ceiling in terms of resources (mostly memory). As I said the old build has served me well for many many years but it is time to upgrade.

I am looking for feedback on my budget build and any suggestions for a better system within cost constraint of about $1500 max.

Here is my planned build -

New Components -
• Already Purchase - CPU: AMD Threadripper 1920X 3.5 GHz 12-Core Processor ($199.99 @ Amazon)
• CPU Cooler: Noctua NH-U9 TR4-SP3 46.44 CFM CPU Cooler ($69.90 @ Amazon)
• Thermal Compound: Arctic Silver 5 High-Density Polysynthetic Silver 3.5 g Thermal Paste ($5.98 @ OutletPC)
• Motherboard: ASRock X399 Phantom Gaming 6 ATX TR4 Motherboard ($243.98 @ Newegg)
• Memory: G.Skill Ripjaws V 32 GB (2 x 16 GB) DDR4-3600 Memory ($139.99 @ Newegg)
• Video Card: Gigabyte GeForce GTX 1050 Ti 4 GB Windforce OC Video Card ($159.99 @ Newegg)
• Case: Phanteks ECLIPSE P350X ATX Mid Tower Case ($64.00 @ Amazon)
• Power Supply: SeaSonic 520 W 80+ Bronze Certified Fully Modular ATX Power Supply ($74.88 @ OutletPC)
Total: $958.71
