Hello all. I've been out of the hardware scene for many years now, so I'd like some advice on the latest gear if possible. Some caveats... I think I'm locked into a 2700x unless ryzen 3000 has something special up its sleeve. It will be running at stock speeds. I'm done with overclocking. Looking at x470 simply because I have 6 sata drives and need as many USB ports as I can get. So i/o is the priority. RAM. I'm not up with any ddr4 so finding something compatible is my biggest problem. I believe 3000 and above is necessary. The real question is, I would like 32gb. Is this possible and if so will it kill performance? 16gb is doable but I feel it won't be long until 32gb is a requirement. I have a nice custom water loop sitting in the cupboard but don't really want to go that route unless I have to. As I said, stock is where I'm at these days.
