What are you using the system for?

 

Id probaly get 16gb dimms so you can upgrade later

 

Id get a single 2tb ssd and a 8tb hdd

 

Also those are smr hdds, so check if that matters for your use case, and those are qlc ssds, so check if that matters aswell

 

That aio seems very expensive for what it is

Same with the motherboard. 

 

OP, why tho? You didn't provide what you're trying to do. That's a lot of money and a lot of computer, especially for a first time build.

It's so overkill for many use cases, too

The entire build seems to be based on picking expensive parts to fill out a 5000$ budget rather than actually selecting parts carefully as to get the most speed or reliability.

If you were just wanting to waste 5000$ then sure..... seems about right
