    I also included the 2 most overlooked things: External backup drive and BackUPS
    That setup deserves a GPU too.

    Which can be added at a later date, as the i7 includes integrated graphics which will be fine for what he's doing right now.

    TVs, specially large ones are good for games but not so good for text and precise stuff.

    Peter, the on board graphics will run any game a Wii will, I believe. Previously you stated you wanted a high end graphics card. That will be the most expensive component in your build. So, it may be wise to just use the on board graphics, as @simrick suggested. Later, if you see that you need a graphics card, you can save up for it. Also, Nvidia is just now releasing new graphics cards. I suspect in a couple of months there will be some very good cards at much cheaper prices than they are right now. The on board will do everything you need currently.

    simrick's idea of a good external backup drive is an excellent idea. You need a good backup plan to avoid the problems you had in the other thread. Plus, I think there are some backups and adjustments you need to make in your CPU thread to protect the system you already have. Those need to be done very quick. Simrick's suggested system is a very good one and should be seriously considered.

    From your test system, you do not, and never will, need 32 GB of ram. You could do just fine with 8 GB, but 16 would be good too. Too much ram is wasted money. If you are not using it, it serves no useful purpose.

    Stay with high quality parts. You will know which those are by research. I don't know why you would need 2 SSDs, mybe you do. I think you would be much better served with 1 SSD and a mechanical hard drive for data and storage. I prefer Samsung SSDs. As of right now they are one of the best, if not the best, SSDs you can buy.

    Simrick showed a Windows 10 OS in her suggestions. The retail version is more expensive, but can save you money in the long run. I would go with the one she suggested.

    Just some of my thoughts at this time.
