New computer

I am planning to upgrade the ss deep down the road which shouldn’t be that hard considering the motherboard has three slots for them

In the manual I can see only 2 m.2 slots.

... but I'm no expert.

Depending on your monitor’s resoltion and refresh rate, you’d likely be better off with an i5 12400f and a 3070ti if this is a gaming computer.  
 

But yeah what is your budget, what do tyou wanna use it for, and what is your monitor’s resolution and refresh rate.  
 

Also, do you currently have a desktop PC?

The sign is a subtle joke. The shop is called "Sneed's Feed & Seed", where feed and seed both end in the sound "-eed", thus rhyming with the name of the owner, Sneed. The sign says that the shop was "Formerly Chuck's", implying that the two words beginning with "F" and "S" would have ended with "-uck", rhyming with "Chuck". So, when Chuck owned the shop, it would have been called "Chuck's Feeduck and Seeduck".

I would change to the 12700f because that board does not support OC. You will save about 75 dollars that you could put into either 32gb of ram, or a 3060ti.

Two options for you.

 

First one, more balanced build. It would be good for today, but may need a CPU/ram upgrade:

2nd one, CPU and ram will be probably be good for awhile and GPU may need to be upgraded in near future:

If you tend to play a lot of modern AAA games or massive multiplayer games, I would recommend the 2nd one cause it's easier to upgrade the GPU later down the line. If you don't play too much AAA games, you'd probably be good with 1st option.

I don’t really  intend on play that many AAA titles on the computer I have a consul and it’s mostly just for things like online surfing Minecraft and space engineers. Not too far in the future I do plan on going up to 32 gigs of RAM I just don’t have the money for it right now

That’s the same board that I got. And it does support Intel‘s 12th gen cores

Sorry I thought you were asking for a board recommendation that is a 60. If you want to keep that cpu then get something like an aorus z690 pro. Then you will have overclocking.

Ok well this is my first computer so I’m not going to trying to over clock it
