That is if you need all that stuff and your budget allows you - why not? However, if you are not going to work with graphics, you could cut the costs by going for an integrated card and not-so-fancy screen. Alternatively, you might go for a smaller SSD capacity, if you know you aren't doing to use too many software titles.
Best is best, but it's up to you to decide what is redundant depending on what you are going to do with your machine. That was my point (at least, as I tried to deliver it).
Thanks for the comment!)
