I am looking to go big on cores and have bought the Intel i9 7980XE 18 core processor. I'm trying to find a sane list of parts that will be compatible - I haven't built a computer for about 10 years and things have changed!
These guys have a list for the 7960X but I'm wondering if the parts are good enough to deal with the 7980XE?
ASUS Prime X299-Deluxe Mother Board
Corsair Dominator Platinum 64GB (8 x 8GB)
Seasonic Prime Titanium 1000 SSR-1000TD
Samsung SSD 850 Pro 2TB
Samsung SSD 850 EVO 2TB
Samsung NVMe SSD 960 Pro M.2 1TB
Samsung NVMe 960 Pro M.2 512GB
Fractal Design Define R5 w/o window white case
Fractal Design CPU Water Cooler Celsius S36
Hard Drives WD 6TB Green
So I have a few questions:
One thing i'm wondering is about the storage. They seem to be recommending 5 hard drives. I've never heard of these nvme m.2 drives before but presumably if I only need a small amount of storage then the 512GB m.2 one will be enough for everything, no need for the 1TB m.2 or the other SSDs right?
Will the 650 Watt version of the power supply (https://www.amazon.co.uk/Seasonic-Prime-Titanium-Modular-Supply/dp/B01HXYRJYK) be enough to fuel everything?
I don't need a mega graphics card. This isn't going to be a gaming machine and all I need is to connect an HDMI screen. Can you give me a reason to not get a really cheap graphics card like this? https://www.ebuyer.com/806221-asus-geforce-gt-710-graphics-card-gt710-sl-1gd5
