Getting back into flight sim after a couple years off. Used to play FSX on a laptop and struggled greatly. Fortunately able to afford a decent setup now and want to experience smooth gameplay with high graphics settings. I intend to use this rig for both P3D and hopefully what ever microsoft gives us in the future. Below is my intended build, would you make any changes? Any advice would be greatly appreciated, it's a big decision for me.

I'd be waiting a few weeks to just see how good the upcoming AMD Ryzen 3950X is, because it might be better to go AMD!
