I put in an order with DS earlier this month, but then got a 4K TV for Christmas (yay) and I’m not sure this configuration will fully support it. It’s been a while since I got a new desktop so I’m wondering what changes I should make - any advice would be much appreciated!

Welcome to the forum Kalinsius !

If you want to run 4K panel at a 60 + FPS at high settings or better, you might want to move up your GPU selection to the RTX 2080 Super.    4K will run on that entry level AMD GPU, but frame rates would be very low in the 30-40 FPS range.   That AMD GPU is great for 1080P and OK for 1440P.   Need something stronger for acceptable 4K performance.   RTX 2080 Super or RTX 2080 Ti would be the appropriate video cards for best 4K performance.

2 other possible build tweaks I would suggest....

Drive1....Change to a Samsung Evo 970 Pro 500GB M.2 NVME SSD
               for 5X faster performance over the stock DS 500 GB SSD.
               Your motherboard will have 2 ports for M.2 NVME drives.

Cooler.....Change to the Corsair H100i 240 mm AIO cooler for better
               performance and longer warranty. DS branded parts only
               carry a 1 yr warranty.

DS is easy to work with on changes...just ask them...
See what you think....

Thanks much for the recommendations! I’m checking on each of them.

In another thread specifically addressing gaming on a 75" 4K TV, I wrote:

Your 4K TV will not play beyond 60 fps. With an RTX 2080 SUPER, Battlefield 1 in 4k Ultra settings can reach up to 88 fps. Battlefield 5 would reach 75 fps. Your game would be capped at 60 fps, so you have no need to spend the extra money. There a handful of games that play in 4k Ultra below 60 fps, but they are so poorly optimized, or so demanding in some other way, they usually play under 60 fps with the 2080 Ti. You see differences like 50 vs 56.9 in Total War: Warhammer for example. Or 56 vs 61.5 in Assasssin's Creed: Origins. Not a difference I would pay $573 for. 50 fps is perfectly acceptable.


HockeyBuck added:

"...No other GPU would beat the RTX 2080 Ti performance in 4K or 2K on any panel for a couple years anyway.    That said ...TV’s are merely big, even 4K TV are not the best panel attributes for gaming...and as my forum pal Cretae said you get 60 FPS max...which is the most we are supposed to be able to detect with human eyes anyway...lol."

So IMO, the 2080 Ti would not be your better choice. I agree with the other suggestions. You really do want that super speed for your primary drive.
