      Thank you all for your feedback. I realized that I would run the node from home and bought everything for this!
      The configuration is now as follows: Be Quet 750W pro, MSI b550, Ryzen 3900X, Dark rock 4, G. skill 64Gb, Rtx 2080ti, ssd 1Tb 970 Evo, ssd 500Gb 907Evo
      My home speed internet 250Mbit

      Samsung SSD 970 EVO (500000/480000 IOPS)…probably will pass…if you can buy PLUS model or higher
      Bandwith 250Mbps download and upload?

      yes, 250Mbps download and upload

      That’s the right approach! Good hardware, but ssd must be Nvme

      Make sure NVMe otherwise all good.

      See above and then you’ll have my support

      1 has already taken and installed. The second is coming from the store. Will be in a couple of days
