get a b550 auros pro ac, same performance vrm wise, more io ports, cheaper price.

get a 3200 cl15 gskill ripjaws ram kit ryzen actually does worse with ram over 3600mhz

get a cheaper case, no need to spend that much on a pc case, ever.

get a sabrent rocketq or other cheaper ssd, 150 for a 970 is kinda scuffed.

A cheaper motherboard: B550 Aorus Pro if you're memory overclocking, B550-A pro if you're not

Cheaper RAM with better silicon, such as Ballistix 3600CL16 (micron rev. e)

A less "premium" (but still good) SSD like an A2000 or similar

I don't have PCPP open atm, but that should save you about $150 total without sacrificing looks.

You could spend less on ram. Try looking for DDR4-3600 CL-15 or 16. You could spend less on the ssd as well. Maybe going SATA 3 for your SSD? If that doesn't sound great, you could go for PCIE gen 3 for your ssd. The one you have is PCIE gen 4, and they barely differ as of today in gaming. The case is by far the least budget friendly item in this config. You can save like 180 dollars spending less.

At the TOP there's a BB code button, push that and paste the text here, rather than pasting the image.

No. you don't have to maintain the AIO.

You can have rgb on the case fans, the aio has a gif or rgb that you can put on there.

For th eAio you just put it on and then when it gets dusty clean it with something (You don't need to take apart the whole pc I don't think

The AIO itself, no. Like anything else in your computer though, you should keep the fans and radiator dust free by blowing them out regularly.

No, usually you do not need to maintain the AIO itself. Although there are some that can be opened up.
Still, cleaning the fans and brushing off dust is nessesary for a long life.
There are people that cut open their AIOs and replace the liquid, but these tend to leak afterwards as they are not designed to be maintained.

Some AIOs let you replace the liquid, some require modding, and some even need you to fill them.  Most are just Asetek painted models, and typically those don't need you to maintain them.

The monitor is pretty expensive for 1080p (is 240hz a necessity for you?). You can get a Acer ED320QR for $219 at Walmart at the moment and it seems to go on sale a lot. I picked one up for $125.
