Just recently finished my new Ryzen 2700x build. Bought some new peripherals and a second monitor between this build and my last. Everything listed as $0 on this build was reused from my previous i7 4790k build. Got craigslist deals on a GTX 1080ti ($450) and monitor as well as various discounts on other components. Just recently added the Asus PG279Q from Amazon Warehouse for $580.
I game; am a former graphic/web design, photography, video editing professional; currently back in school for software engineering, so I have a pretty diverse usage profile. This was my first AMD CPU based build and overall I'm pretty happy with it.my primary complaint is the amount of software needed to run the different RGB components. I will probably coordinate that a little better next time.
Considering a hard line custom water loop in the future, but I just don't have the time or desire to spend the money at the moment. I will be doing some DIY custom PET sleeving in the near future though.
