    both a bit of waste for minng I would say? you never need a high end cpu for this job......

    RX580 GPU is a good choice though.

    mining is the job of graphic cards, provide good power supply for it run stable is good choice. but cpu, ssd, ram is over kill. cpu buy cheap one 40 will hanlde the job well. ssd 128gb, ram 4gb no more. spend that money on second rig. the more you save, the faster investment return. that what you want. never know what will happen 1 year later, rig can be garbage. so the faster is better alway.
