Every thing seems fine to me, make sure you have a HDD to store the games also and a cheap aftermarket cooler is still welcome given the Intel Stock cooler is very loud.

I'd get another 8GB of RAM for that, it's a glaring deficit compared to your CPU/GPU.


Lose the NVMe ssd and get as much SATA ssd as you can, will help with your high load time games (if you have them).
