This build is severe overkill for just gaming, especially the games you want to play. You don't need a 3090 at all. You don't even really need a 3080, but at least that would be an acceptable splurge. 16GB of RAM is more than enough. Just get one kit of 2x8GB. A 10700K would be much more appropriate as well.

if you aren't going to overclock then you can save a lot of money on mobo and cooling. 

Also i think amd based system will give you much better results, budget allowes. I assume you chose intel for its availability.


lancool 215 great choice as already noted.

Lian Li Lancool II Mesh

phanteks p360a

suggested cpu cooler is kinda chunky so make sure it fits these cases.
