Any reason you chose a 9900k over more recent chips?

Unless you're getting it for cheap (used or on a fire sale), you're probably better off getting a 10700k. It's basically the same CPU but with a soldered IHS, so lower temperatures.

 

For memory, you might want to get something faster if it's the same price, but it won't make that big of a difference, so I wouldn't spend too much extra on it (depending on the speeds).

 

The SSD isn't amazing. That drive IIRC is DRAM-less, so it's not a very good performer. You're better off getting a WD SN750, which is about the same price. 

 

The power supply is probably fine for what you're doing, but it might be a good idea to get something better if you plan on upgrading in the future. The RM750 or RM850 are both amazing PSUs that you might want to consider, but you're probably fine with the 750 B5.

If this is your current build, it is more than fine, no reason to upgrade anything.

 

If this is a new build you are putting together, kind of an odd choice, because the CPU + motherboard are 2 generations behind. (intel is on 11th gen, this is 9th gen). I would suggest a build with the AMD Ryzen 5800X or perhaps Intel 11700K or 11900K.

 

Also depends on your usage. Gaming or work? You might go for a 5600x or 11400 and save some money if it is just for gaming.

 

Good luck!
