He technically has a budget of $3000 but does not want to fully expend that budget so he can upgrade peripherals if at all possible.

Slightly confused about the " A USB 3.2 Gen 2 to USB 3.2 Gen 1 header adapter is required. " text, but I think https://www.amazon.com/zdyCGTime-Front-Header-Extension-Motherboard/dp/B083S6WLHV/?th=1 should work?

Any and all feedback is appreciated.
