The motherboard and CPU are two different sockets, so you wouldn't be able to fit them together, let alone get it to work. I would highly recommend you make a list using PCPartPicker instead, it's a lot easier for us to deal with, it checks for compatibility (there are some issues that can get through, but it's very solid), and it checks for the cheapest price from a number of different retailers instead of just Amazon (again, it's not perfect, but it's pretty solid).

I can start buying the parts around fall or Christmas Time of this year, or Next year.

Wait until you've saved up everything in order to make your part selection. Stuff changes so frequently in this industry that anything that you plan today will be irrelevant within a week, let alone 6-12 months.

Anyway, if you aren't planning on building this system till late this year, wait till late this year to make the parts list. AM5 and Rapter Lake will have been released so whatever CPU you pick today won't make sense, and new GPUs will have launched so whatever GPU you pick today won't make sense. For everything else, prices change frequently enough that you can't make a good prediction for what will be a good buy in a week, let alone 6 months. Personally for my main rig, in the week of planning it out, I changed what motherboard I was gonna buy 3 times, including as I was about to leave for Micro Center just because the prices shifted and a better board was available for cheaper or the board I was gonna buy went out of stock.

Hello. I understand what you are saying and I went ahead of myself a bit. Please know that I am still learning these types of things. So thank you for guiding me in the right path. If it would change anything I could start getting the things this summer, I was going to wait until the whole inflation deal would go. But I don’t know if I should buy a pc or not right now. 

 

if it is still relevant, here is the link for my stuff https://pcpartpicker.com/list/VfxqH2
