I would save the money on the second GPU and put that to better use. Most of the developers of games are not adding support for Multi-GPU anymore.
I would also look into getting the 3900X over the 9900K. It's better value for the money.

If you can ever increase your budget to $50, this USB adapter is excellent:
IIRC it was rated #1 in 2016 (at least the WUSB6100M was, not sure about max). I've used it before on a desktop where Ethernet Jack was too far away and had excellent speeds. The 6100M can be had for as little as $35.
Bought some Dominator RAM here for 75 and sold it on /r/hardwareswap for 125. Oops.
I have a Galaxy S9.
I upgraded my HTC E8 in April '17 to an S8 and am on the yearly upgrade plan.
I really like the wider design than the skinny tall S8.
Energy drinks tend to not work for me - the only effective solution I've found for myself is 5-Hour Energy. Conversely there are B12 pills if you need a sprint of caffeine. ,
My first programming language in the real world, not just college classes, was vbscript. Dear god I hate trying to write code in that language, but my senior coworker (who's been here 15 years) loves it. I rather use Powershell, much easier for me to comprehend.
There are a lot of missing factors. What kind of internet plan are you paying for and who is your service provider? How far away from the router are you? How many devices are connected (I'm going to assume it's an all-in-one that does routing and wifi)? What do speed tests (google speed tests) say your up and download speeds are?
At the cost of those WD Reds, just get some WD Easystores and chuck them (easy process). They will almost always come with WD Reds at a lower cost, even if it has a white label.
Your RAID depends on how many you're thinking of purchasing. With 4 drives you're limited to Raid 0, 1, or 5, while just two drives you have Raid 0 or 1. I would advise against Raid 0 (no redundancy; if one drive fails, entire RAID is shot), unless you have a backup.
Mazda 3 (2012). Function over form. I am close to paying it off (could have it paid off already, but I'm making minimum payments). I've owned it for four years and plan on sometime down the road messing with it (probably new headers / exhaust).
I took the home taught course when I was 15. When I was 16, I went to the DMV and took the online exam. After that, my mom checked the checkbox where I don't have to take a driving course to get my license.
Now a day things are much more strict.
When I was 15, I was so ready to drive. I was taking drivers ed immediately. I finished and complained to my mom why she wouldn't let me drive already.
Back then your parents could sign a waiver at the DMV stating you didn't need to take a driving course to get your license. $10 later I had my license. I definitely needed more experience - 3 months in I totaled my vehicle.
My first kiss went a little like this...
Love the hack that allowed me to play the original AoE as the resolution of my monitor (1440p). Game looked so crisp.
Well, I was going to recommend the Workpro 1000 which I got on a sale for $75 a year ago, but nevermind. Now it's > $200.
Yes, go into Staples and try on their 'mesh' chairs and see which one fits you best within your budget.
The Philips Hue starter kit comes with 2 bulbs plus the bridge for $70 on google express: Link
That plus the dot would be cheaper than the echo plus.
I got the B&O E8 truly wireless earphones; have plans to use while running mainly. Already had to request an exchange from Amazon because the left earpiece would not connect with the software for Transparency Mode. Other items received; some clothes, a colored Philips hue lightbulb (already own a bridge), another computer kit (can never have too many tools), and a fruit/smoothie blender.
What I gave between my parents, step parents, and brother: 2 Home Mini's, 2 TP-Link Smart Plugs, 1 Echo Dot, Corsair MM300 Extended, Acoustic Foam Panels, 2 Hubsan entry-level drones, 2-pack Tile Pro, a Popovich poster, and a Bose 901 Equalizer to replace the one that was stolen so that my father can resetup his sound system.
My brother bought my mom a TV to replace her gym TV that had trouble with WiFi Signal and my dad bought him an XBOX One X (as much as we harp on consoles, it's good value for the money imo).
You could always get a job like UberEats and then you will constantly be using your phone to search for deliveries to be made..
..then you will also be looking for the nearest phone charger, too!
Not a PC component, but I waited out several months for the U2715H monitor to go on sale. I would constantly see the U2515H.. I finally bit the bullet and paid full price.
$40 for a year of SpyHunter as an ad blocker :(
The legs are heavy aluminum, so not really. It's solid wood countertops not particle board. I'm also gonna install a fifth leg.
The chair is the workpro 1000 from staples. It was on sale at the time for $75. Comfortable enough, sometimes rides my thighs wearing shorts.
2009 Corvette, 1985 Corvette, 2012 Mazda 3 (mine), BMW (z3?), Mitsubishi Eclipse, Mitsubishi 3000gt, and an 08 Durango. And three motorcycles in the garage. I have slowly been trying to help my dad get rid of some of the vehicles.
Yeah, it happens. Thinking of a pop vinyl to hold it up.
When you tell them you are cancelling, they should try to keep your service in any way possible, and one of the most common followup question is always "what can we do to keep you as a customer?" At least in my experience.
Upgrade to an SSD.
Check if you have ample cooling in your case. What kind of temps are you reaching?
This will sell quickly on /r/hardwareswap
I know, but I made the mistake after my braces with my retainer. The teeth shift everyday even if it's very minor.
It's quite annoying that I have a drone that was given to me for Christmas that I want to try out yet I keep forgetting about it.
Here's an afterlife tip: Always always always wear the retainer. Nothing like skipping a day or two and then the retainer being loose. Luckily my dentist will tighten it for free. Also, make sure to buy the Retainer Cleaner (can be found at CVS), a brush and soap doesn't do it justice.
Since Franklins is temporarily closed, try Salt Lick.
Repost because deleted for some reason.
PCPartPicker part list / Price breakdown by merchant
Competition / new processors are nice, but RIP resale value :(
These CPUs have already tanked with the newer Intel / AMD CPUs :(
My 6850K is rapidly losing value... and I want to sell it to move over to threadripper, but without taking a huge loss.
This is not worth $400, even if you are able to get it a 5.2 ghz stable. i5's from intel are a bad buy right now considering AMD's offerings.
So, how much has your electricity bill gone up since?
What is IP89 rating? Have only heard of IP57, 67, 68.
Dunno. No wonder I never got a notification.
If I was to build a new system right now, I'd do a lot of things differently. Instead of having a Mini-STX build for running Plex, an expensive Laptop, and a Desktop PC I'd sell it all, buy a cheap chromebook and build the following:
The goal for this build was to be able to handle anything I throw at it while keeping expandability/upgradability in mind. I also wanted to keep this system as un-flashy as possible and to the point. The PC will be running:
Clarification on some of the choices:
Since I will not be doing any modern gaming, Ryzen was the obvious choice.
Originally had the Asus X399, but AsRock has dual Ethernet incase I ever wanted to run pfSense
I was debating on the case option; having a lot of room for 3.5 HDDs is needed.
While I probably wouldn't need 4TB for the camera recordings, I hate having mismatch drive sizes.
I absolutely need PWM fans. The lowest I was able to curve my DC fans on current build is 60% which is still too loud for my taste, plus I love the plain look. Yes, I could have bought a Fan Controller but then I would have lost out on the RGB.
The monitors would be an upgrade to my 2 U2715H for true edge-to-edge. First world problems, I know.
I'd probably include a UPS of sorts too, but my knowledge on them is limited. This would include a Network Switch as well for my cameras so I could have a separate VLAN and not have my camera traffic run through the same network as my internet.
I use a 20 year old desk that was purchased right around the time the house was purchased - solid wood desk. While it was built in the times where one monitor was the defacto standard, I was able to remove the top shelving unit and it's sturdy enough to handle:
2 27" monitors, laptop, desktop, DVR, Printer, Router/Modem, plus my weight if I stand on it. Company is still around but I don't think this model is:
Riverside Furniture Corp.
I bought the Ryzen 7 1700 one. Dell rep was able to give me Military discount (dependant) and 10% off with tenoff code.
Only flaws: Lack of TB3 (Intel only) and no upgradable GPU.
Anyone have any ideas of where to find this/release date?
I was just looking at the HP Pavilion - I don't know if I'd want to go as low as a 930MX though, but the price is definitely right.
I was looking at this one specifically - http://store.hp.com/us/en/pdp/hp-pavilion-all-in-one---24-a210t
An R5 1400 for > $1000 does not seem like a good deal; If it was 1600 I'd be all over that. I think I'll be contacting a Dell rep about the 1700 version.
I realize that in the world of AIOs, iMacs reign supreme and she does own an iPad, but I'm not looking to throw that kind of money for name brand..
Seems like any other option though is more geared towards gamers or severely underpowered.
I feel like sometimes they get extremely bored, so they make a bunch of hidden lists that nobody will find unless they ask or poke around.
Looks like Micro Center has been removed from pcpartpicker.
You don't necessarily NEED a XEON processor to run Windows Server, but:
IIRC, Ryzen has problems with memory over 2933, but I'm not sure if they've addressed that recently.
If you're going into youtube content creation and streaming, I'd probably go with the 1080ti if you have the cash to spare. Ideally, at some point you'd want to shoot/render/stream in 4K which the best card we have at the moment to do so (that isn't > $1000) is the 1080ti. Just my opinion however.
Also, the NEX is about the worst EVGA PSU you can buy - it's from their first gen and used crappy chinese capacitors. Look for a G2 or G3 model (or P2 for extended warranty).
EDIT: The motherboard does not have bluetooth. There is the ASUS ROG Strix B250I which is considerably more expensive that has BT included. For streaming you don't need the Video Card, it's just an option, so you could get rid of that and get the Asus board.
