As title states, I've got a roughly $2000 budget, looking to play at 1440p 144hz, recording and streaming are definite possibilities, I also have a vive and do a good bit of CAD work. My trusty old 4790k/GTX 970 just isn't quite cutting it anymore.

This is what I came up with. I obviously do care about aesthetics, I know I could get more performance if I didn't, but I'll admit I'm a sucker for some RGB goodness. I do know ryzen benefits from higher speed ram, with 3600 being the sweet spot, but that kit in 3600 is about $70 more, so I was wondering what the likelihood would be that I could just overclock the ram to that speed. I have a bit of experience overclocking my current machine, but it's obviously a few generations old so I'm not sure how it goes with modern stuff. I do hit the end of my current 16gb kit regularly, so that's why I'm springing for 32gb. The separate hard drives is a personal preference thing, I often run multiple different OSes and separate drives for stuff has just been less of a hassle in the past.

Also, I'm having something weird with amazon links being blacked out, and PCPP not showing pricing from amazon. Any clue what that's about?

Edit: Changed HDD
