Motherboard: Great option

Processor: The best that works for that mobo

Memory: Really good

SSD: Best option

Graphics: If you are not planning on running an older version of macOS (older than Catalina) then I would recommend an AMD Radeon RX 5700 XT, because it is cheaper and more powerful. There is also an Asus ROG Strix version.

Cooler: If you can fit a bigger rad in, get at least a 240mm (minimum). I would recommend a 280mm, or if possible, a 360mm.

HDD: Good


What PSU are you using? If you aren't using a Seasonic, Corsair or EVGA PSU, then I would recommend getting a different one.

but with that build is it recommeded to be a server ( open 24/7 ) or not at all bc i want it for xcode and i want it as a plex server that can handle more than 5 people in the same time you know ?
