It depends. If you are compiling software for NASA and rendering Transformers movies you did well. If not, it may be overkill...

Overkill? Does not compute.

Just kidding. It's mostly fine, maybe except for the weird amount of SSDs. Did you have them laying around or do you just like to spend money?

And why did you decide to go for 32GB?

Had the 850 evo lying around. Bought the 960 evos from a friend who got 1TB samsung 960 pro for himself. I paid 250.00.
32GB because I wanted more RGB and it felt right to fill those slots.

Good deal. Much better to have 2 good ones rather than a very good one.

As a nice little trick, setting a paging file on both disks should give you a performance boost. RAID should be better of course, but that would reduce your storage capacity by half.

Yeah I'm not at the storage capacity for raid. Right now the 850 Evo is the boot drive and Riff Raff and the nvme ssd' are Steam library and battlenet library.
