Review PC Part List (first time)

This is my first time building a pc so I spent a little while researching parts to create this list

I am mainly going to be using this PC for gaming, as well as the occasional amount of work. Let me know if I should change anything or if you know of any potential issues I might have with this build. Overall just any feedback I can get on it before I start building. Thanks!

It would appear that you have already purchased a number of these parts, including things that I would change, like the motherboard and NVME drive.

 

Are all of the "purchased" marks accurate?

No, I had marked them as purchased because I currently have them in my cart and was planning on getting them first. Instead of doing this, I decided it would be smarter to get feedback on my list first.

Basically I set to $0 all of the stuff I didn't touch, and made changes to the rest. I got you the same or better performance in the rig plus a huge monitor upgrade for about the same price ~$2200.
