I was going to wait for Ryzen 2, but due to a taxes situation, i have some money that i need to spend in computer components until the end of the year, so i'm considering building my HTPC now.
My only use for 2019 will be 1080p and 4K movies, on my Optoma HD87, so 4K movies will be downscaled to 1080p, with madVR tone mapping applied.
By 2020 i should be able to afford a JVC, and by that time i will probably change the graphic card for something new and more powerful.
The components i'm considering are:
CPU: Ryzen 5 2600
Motherboard: Asus - PRIME B450-PLUS ATX AM4 Motherboard
SSD: Samsung - 970 Evo 250 GB M.2-2280 Solid State Drive
Memory: G.Skill - Trident Z 16 GB (1 x 8 GB) DDR4-3200 Memory
GPU: Zotac - GeForce GTX 1070 8 GB AMP! Edition Video Card
Power Supply: SeaSonic - FOCUS Plus Gold 750 W 80+ Gold Certified Fully-Modular ATX Power Supply
Case: Silverstone - Black Grandia GD01B-MXR-USB3.0 HTPC Case

(I was not able to select only 1x8GB of RAM for the selected RAM in the System Builder, so i had to choose 2x8GB, but my intention is to only use 8GB).
- The memory was selected to use a Samsung B-Die, according to this post: https://www.reddit.com/r/Amd/comment...nfusion_eg_on/
- The power supply is probably overkill, but i want to be prepared for using a powerful card in the future.
