My local MicroCenter was more or less giving away x299 hardware not long ago. So I upgraded.

Old ass antec case with a shit tone of mods.
gigabyte x299 board. (forgot witch one)
i7 9800x.
16gb ddr4.
512gb ssd.
780ti SLI.
1200w PSU.
20" Triton.
water cool D5 pump, nickle heatkiller CPU-iv pro, heatkiller GPU blocks with a magic cool 360mm, 240mm radiators.
6 120mm 1200rpm Scythe krazz fans.

The CPU, ram and board was about 400$. Can't complain as I got to reuse the rest of the system and can still use windows7 on the system.

Man, I really need to upgrade to a Ryzen system with 2x nVME chips (2TB for the OS and one of the drives, and another 2TB for the second HDD) as my FX-6300 is too slow and old for some modern gaming and puts a lot of pressure on the CPU (if MicroCenter has a giveaway again).

Get one more hard drive sled/caddy for yours. I do this all the time to fill up the empty slots in my computers just in case I add more drives.
Dump the Seagate ST2000DM001. Not trusted; Get WD gold 4TB or 6TB before doing it, do a MBR2GPT on your 2TB and make sure UEFI is on in bios, Detection of either MBR or GPT drives and usb sticks are automatic at each boot up. When installing new OS on any UEFI capable computer, you need to do 2 things: rufus utility is set as partition scheme: GPT, Target system: UEFI (non CSM); filesystem: NTFS when creating from bootable windows 10 64 iso. This is same image that you can do for non-UEFI computer as well by using MBR instead of UEFI, this is reason you did not see a storage disk when attempting to install OS on a UEFI only computers using a MBR bootable usb install stick. Also this is needed to set the hard drive as GPT also before transferring hard drive to the UEFI computer before installing win 10 OS or UEFI linux.

Your GTX1070 is also UEFI vbios as well. You'll have more reliable filesystem with multiple backups of GPT file system. Then Add second WD 4TB or 6TB gold, before partitioning, Go into filepart and set the WD as GPT, exit diskpart, then use your favorite clone utility. This way you don't have to pay the utility to do clone from MBR to GPT drives. Cloning MBR to MBR or GPT to GPT is free.

Cheers,

Have a Z420 as well for... retro stuff. It has XP and 7, a slew of older VMs, PCem, and 86Box configs.
