Everything seems pretty much up to date. For SSD, you can also look for the Toshiba OCZ RD400 Series Solid State Drive 256GB. Again, it totally depends on your usage.

I would be hard pressed but I might be able to match it for a few dollars less. Nothing to make any difference. Good set up

If it were me, I'd wait until I could spring for that Samsung 970 - SEVENTY, PRO at 512 gigabytes. Since I assume this will be your C: and only drive, you're going to need the additional storage. 512GB is actually plenty until you build a little two bay NAS down the road. If you're lucky right now you can add two of the same drives that you have laying around, say about 1TB a piece and RAID 5 having two partitions. Since I see you're not a gamer or graphics enthusiast (no dedicated GPU) two additional WD Blues will do the trick.

Everything else is spot on, though I'm not an overtly avid expert on AMD motherboards these days. Don't forget to put the smallest syringe of Arctic Silver 5 you can find in your cart before checkout!! What case are you using? I recommend Fractal Design!

Hi, I cannot name a better, faster or more reliable combination but I was in the market for a new gaming computer, and this setup seems to be for a very good price.
I am not familiar with computers, so I need to ask if this setup would be able to run Fortnite while also broadcasting it to millions of fans simultaneously.

Thank you very much in advance.

I would suggest you get at least the 500GB 960 evo. and though it is a bit more a H80i corsair AIO liquid cooler. These CPU put out a ton of heat. 

Also I recommend you get 3200 rated RAM. It allows the Ryzen chips to work the best. anything above 3200 is diminishing returns so is not needed. If this was a 1600/2600/x than 3000 is ok but with 1700/2700/x it needs the 3200 for best performance.

I personally have my 2700x overclocked to 4.4Ghz on a corsair H100i version 1 which is a 240MM double thick radiator and had it previously on a Bulldozer 8120 overclocked to 4.8Ghz for 7 years. They just keep working.
