So last year, I came to this forum about building my PC about twice now. I got some mixed reviews about my PC, but I don't mind. It is something I enjoyed using and before that I helped my roommate with a build on his PC (He loved it by the way.). Now I am looking to further upgrade my PC at the moment or completely start new.

I want to get into streaming and editing videos, but I also want to game as well. I was wondering if I can get some help with building an ultimate PC once again! My current budget is at $3,200 and might invest a little more depending on my build. This is my current build:

CPU: AMD - Threadripper 1950X 3.4GHz 16-Core Processor
CPU Cooler: NZXT - Kraken X62 Rev 2 98.2 CFM Liquid CPU Cooler
Motherboard: Gigabyte - X399 AORUS Gaming 7 ATX TR4 Motherboard
Memory: G.Skill - Aegis 8GB (1 x 8GB) DDR4-3000 Memory
Memory: G.Skill - Aegis 8GB (1 x 8GB) DDR4-3000 Memory
Memory: G.Skill - Aegis 8GB (1 x 8GB) DDR4-3000 Memory
Memory: G.Skill - Aegis 8GB (1 x 8GB) DDR4-3000 Memory
Storage: Toshiba - P300 3TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive
Storage: Samsung - 850 EVO-Series 500GB 2.5" Solid State Drive
Video Card: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980
Case: NZXT - Phantom 820 (Black) ATX Full Tower Case
Power Supply: SeaSonic - PRIME Platinum 1000W 80+ Platinum Certified Fully-Modular ATX Power Supply
Keyboard: Razer BlackWidow Chroma v2
Mouse: Razer DeathAdder Elite
Monitor: Nixeus Edg 27 1440p 30-144hz IPS Freesync Monitor

Do I need an upgrade?

Go for OLED monitor. No SSD, you must be joking. You can keep current HDD for hentai collection, and SSD for programs.

I'm just playing. I'm using a Razer keyboard and mouse right now, but only because they were free. To me, they feel like one of those products that is all marketing vs quality. Like Beats By Dre. I like Corsair products a lot though. lol

I didn't even notice this^. With a setup that expensive, it's almost a waste not to have an SSD

I'm using a Corsair mm520, best mouse I've ever used.
I've used both the Razer death adder and Razer chromo and both mmbs broke. The deser adder after a respectable 4 years and the chromo at a weak year and a half


And I can see why you'd get backlash from your og build. You simply wasted money in buying threadripper and 32gb of ram and not even thinking about a ssd. You could've spent less than half of that to get the same performance since all you did was game on it.

I forgot to add the SSD, apologies. I use a "Samsung - 850 EVO-Series 500GB 2.5" Solid State Drive" My hentai collection is safe, don't worry!

People argue that Razer use cheap parts and is expensive for the name, while Corsair has excellent quality and is cheap. I guess I just like the look of Razer, but I might look more into Corsair.

I do not just game on my PC. I edit videos and photos on them. So I need a good PC to render the videos.

Ur op states that you want to get into streaming/editing. Which means when u built this pc last year your intentions were just for gaming.
This pc is already built for editing, you need to do research on the parts before purchasing.

Yeah my bad on that part. I should have written my OP a little better. That is on me, but yeah I do have to research on the parts, but I come here for a second opinion.
