I'd get a better headset.

Does your router support wireless AC? Wireless N is painful.

I wouldn't get an MSI case.

If 500GB is your only storage, it's going to run out extremely quickly.

More balanced, but I wouldn't drop money on a new RTX card this close to a new launch.

EDIT: If you see yourself getting into overclocking in the future I would highly suggest swapping out the Motherboard with a B450M Mortar MAX from MSI. If not the AORUS M is fine. It could be worse...


 

This is the best I could do. If anyone could make it better please do *if you can bother yourself to do so ofc. I'm not tryna force shit*.
