What is the pc being used for ? What monitor do you have ?

Gaming such as Fortnite and Minecraft, but I’m hoping to get into some more demanding games bc my current PC can’t handle them. I have a 60 hz monitor, but I plan to get a 165hz soon.

Well typically MSi PRO -A boards are their cheapest offerings in their respective chipset classes.  I mean it MAY be 'enough' for a 12900.  But you're buying the 'K' sku of the chip which, overclocking to one side for a minute.  Will Turbo indefinitely with this new generation resulting in about a 250w to 270w sustained load on the VRM so i'd look to spend a little more on that part.

It was one of his videos i was referencing when i said about the VRM not being enough on the PRO A but this generation it seems to be good

Msi z690a will handle it just fine, they have solid vrms even for a 12900k, no reason to waste more money on a board other than i/o since overclocking is dead anyways, though if you are interested in more i/o you may be interested in the z690 aero g since it has boatloads of i/o if you ever need it, avoid asus as they tend to be needlessly overpriced while being inferior to stuff like the z690 a pro/tomahawk/aero g

 

Btw ddr5 is useless garbage atm, if you want fast rams get some ddr4 ballistix, you can clock em to 4600+ cl18 ~1.6v if you wanna spend abit of time tuning and researching, that will annihilate most ddr5 while being wayyyy cheaper, 3000/3200 bin is fine but you may wanna shoot for the 3600, 4000, or 4400 bins if you are really serious, but over 5100mhz may be a struggle even for the highest bin sticks, mainly temp issues. B die is great but unless you got a good ram overclock board over 4200 may be a struggle cause dual rank suck for high speed

 

Gpu wise 3080 minimum, 3070ti is pathetic for this pricerange

Okay, thx. Also, will 850 watts be enough for overlocking etc ?

I forgot to ask, do you already own any of those parts listed above ?

If you’re going with a top tier 12900k you should upgrade your gpu to either a3080 or 3080ti

I would drop down to the 12700K/KF as that will save $200+. That could go towards the new monitor. Even a 12600K/KF wouldn't be a terrible idea.
