So I am purchasing this PC this evening and was just wondering if there is anything I should swap out.
I intentionally left storage off the list, so i would greatly appreciate any suggestions that would increase performance without significantly increasing cost.
Thanks in advance

Nice choices.

While you left storage off, you might want to look at a WD Black for an OS drive or a SSD.
