Need help choosing parts!

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Budget (including currency): $900-$1000

Country: USA/PR

Games, programs or workloads that it will be used for: Most AAA titles and light studying

Other details (existing parts lists, whether any peripherals are needed, what you're upgrading from, when you're going to buy, what resolution and refresh rate you want to play at, etc): 


In the attachment below I've added what parts/I've chosen so far. I don't really know what parts would work best with this (or if the Motherboard would work). I already chose the parts, I'm aiming for 1080p@~120hz.


Any help would be deeply appreciated!
