The 1700X doesn't come with cooling, but every other Ryzen CPU does.
Everyone knows about that because of this.
And that is a nice idea, since no one ever uses PortablePicker.
A gtx 1060 maybe?
It depends on what type of processor and motherboard you have. For new people, just let the motherboard do the work (if it can)
If that doesn't work or your motherboard doesn't have that feature, use this tutorial.
It's definitely good for light gaming, but with rendering I dont know.
Why would you even reinstall Windows? And if you reinstall windows you also need to reinstall Steam itself.
Dont get 2 SSDs, just get 1 larger one:
Get a 1070
No. http://pcpartpicker.com/product/Tv38TW/evga-geforce-gtx-1070-8gb-sc-gaming-acx-30-video-card-08g-p4-6173-kr is the same as http://www.evga.com/products/Product.aspx?pn=08G-P4-6173-KR

It is OK but you could get it cheaper by buying Win 10 Pro or Home since you probably won't use the features that are included in Education and not Home or Pro. Unless you are a student, buy Windows 10 Home.
It depends on what type of cooling the CPU is using. If it is water cooled and has no fans it won't make any noise but if it has fans it will make noise.
Good! but when did you get the video card? You could have got a GTX 1070 or 1080
No, the Titan Z isn't a "dual video card". The meaning of "dual video cards" is that you put 2 video cards of the same model in a PC using SLI or CrossFire. The 1080 is called the most powerful "single video card" because it's the best video card not in SLI. You can put up to 4 video cards in a system using SLI (except for GTX 1080s and 1070s and all other 10xx cards, they only allow 2) but it mostly depends on how much PCIe x16 slots your motherboard has.
But one thing:
When exactly did you buy the GPU?
Because a GTX 1080 would be better for almost half the price
uhh... The GeForce GTX 1080 isn't $100... I think you maybe meant $500?
A normal edition instead of a founder's edition is more cheaper ($600) and performs the same.
I don't want a Founder's Edition because a normal one is more cheaper.
Other than that it's OK
No, I don't want to use SLI because some games don't support it. 1 GTX 1080 is cheaper and has more compatibility.
I am overclocking.
OK I'll save up some money. And I might upgrade to a different monitor 2-3 years later
Are you overclocking or not?
1 GeForce GTX 1080 would be for $599.99 and be better than 2 980 Ti's for (almost) half the price. 2 GeForce GTX 1070's (with each one being for about $379.99) could be also better for about $330 lower.
ok then is this good?
1 GeForce GTX 1080 = 180 watts
