Hi all, I have put together these components and was hoping all looks good and compatible. Any feedback would be much appreciated.


I already have a Crucial MX500 1tb I can use as a game drive.

I'm not sure on the case. I do use optical drives for ripping cd's and watching blu-ray. But I guess could get an external drive.

Thanks.

I don't see any glaring issues. Not sure the 2X premium for DDR5 is worth it but otherwise it's fine. Also, do you really need the sound card? May want to include some additional fans for exhaust.

Thanks for the reply. No, don't need the sound card. You think stick with DDR4?
Reviews have shown that DDR5 does not offer much, if any, improvement in performance. That will likely change as the platform matures but for now you will pay twice the price for the same performance. Most people are choosing to go DDR4. If you go DDR4 you'll need to choose a different motherboard.

DDR4 / DDR5 is the same at this point. There are some intriguing benefits with DDR5 but, since it's scarce and 10X the price it should be I avoided it and went DDR4

The Focus G has two drive bays, so your optical drives should be fine. I agree with In2Photos on the memory. Get DDR4, and you should be able to get the sound card.
