May consider Kruthal idea, but I'm still not sure if HDD won't crap out.

I've used my mac for 4 years and HDD crapped out thrice, losing all my data for 3 times

Ofc I hope this isn't the case for PC

Well, I have had my HDD for ~5 years now and it have never lossed data.
They only thing that has started happen is that the MOBO (which is also 5~ years old) is starting to slowly lose connection from the inputs.

More Questions..
Is AMD Ryzen a better CPU alternative as compared to Intel one?
Why are there different kind of GTX 1070, what do they do and how are they different in terms of performance?
Is GDDR5X vs GDDR5 a big difference in 1070s?

Using server grade hardware (especially old one) is useless. The v3 is already too old.

Different GTX 1070's have different cooling solutions and clock speeds etc.

Definitely consider Ryzen at this moment. The R7 1700 should suit you really well!

Do you think this is rather good? I decided to up my budget to 1.5k USD (2k SGD), but I was surprised at the cost of this. I expected the jump of 1060 to 1070 to be rather high, but it really isnt that high. Also, should I sorta upgrade my SSD to 500G?

May wait out on AMD Ryzen cause that seems good for streaming/video editing.

And yes I know, the Ryzen doesnt have a GTX1070, I opted for dual RX480s instead.

Okay... Ryzen came out today, and there are a lot of reviews saying its powerful against those that need multicores (Streaming, Video Editing etc.) but it is really weak when it comes to gaming.

Im not sure if I still have the budget for 1.5k USD, but is 1700X worth it because I dont think I'll be doing a lot of streaming/video editing.
