Have you considered adding an SSD?

My budget is 600, and I want a lot of space. Hmm which should I choose?

1TB HDDs aren’t that expensive (only 40-50 bucks), so if you have to choose, get the SSD.

(you could also pick up an external HDD, if you can’t pick up a 3.5” drive)

You seem to do your research but that monitor seems to be one of the downfalls of freesync, which is that certain cheaper models aren't actually that reliable, this LG monitor is an actual bang for the buck freesync monitor with 75hz refresh rate.

One thing i do have to say, do you only plan on using this for cloud gaming or gaming in general? If so IPS isn't really worth it because a slightly better picture comes at the cost of well, cost, response time and refresh rate.

I like this. But what about the monitor? I prefer the look and design of the LG but this one seems decent. I could just go with this and switch out the monitor. IDK
