I'm looking to game at mostly 1440p high (maybe ultra for older games) and some 4k (only have a tv that's 4k so casual games). I'm trying not to spend too much since I'm a freshman in highschool pet sitting for this, which will take a while. I've never gamed on a pc before so this is my first go at it. If I need to change anything, please let me know.

For a few bucks more, also trying to stick with your white asthetic, I changed the CPU and motherboard to save a few bucks, then upped the SSD to 1TB and changed the PSU to something a little higher quality.

I'd do something like this. Cheapest SSD with a DRAM cache — no reason to spend for NVME. 3600 MHz CL16 RAM is like the same price as slower kits. 3600 CL18 is about $10 less.

 

If you want to upgrade the stock air cooler, I'd personally go with NH-U12S chromax or wait for the NH-U12A chromax to come out. If you want a phat graphics card heatsink to overclock the EVGA FTW3 is like $30 more.

If you do go with the P300A, probably worth picking up a couple 140mm fans for the front.

Actually the WD Blue is cheaper, as is the Team Group L5 Lite. You can get the HP EX920 512GB for $74.98 though so there is no reason not to go with an NVMe SSD.
