My rule of thumb: Always order the slowest CPU und the slowest graphics card, if you want a quiet laptop.

But you never have too much RAM or too much SSD space and should get as much as you can afford.

For $800 over the standard GPU, you could get an eGPU enclosure and a 5700 XT, which would be much faster than a 5600 and be upgradable.
