Are there any changes I should make to this list?

Budget (including currency): $3000 USD

Country: United States

Games, programs or workloads that it will be used for: Gaming, Video Editing, Photoshop, and entertainment.

Monitors: 1080p 60hz, 1080p 75hz, and a 1440p 144hz.

Notes: I know this PC is very overkill for what I am doing but it fits within my budget.

OK, a number of things that just make no sense in this. 

  1. The 12900KF is a HOT CPU, it overwhelms the NH-D15 in anything that loads up the entire CPU (like Video Editing). Either you need to drop the CPU down to a 12700(K)(F) if you want to stick to air cooling or go for a 360mm+ AIO. The 12700 route is probably better. 
  2. The thermal paste makes no sense to buy. It's designed for going sub zero, at ambient it won't perform any better than the stuff that comes with the Noctua coolers. Save the $20. 
  3. That motherboard is just a dressed up MSI Z690-A Pro with a more beefy VRM. Feature wise they're basically identical, and the VRMs on them are just varying degrees of overkill. 
  4. For the price you're paying, going for a kit that isn't B die doesn't make a ton of sense. 
  5. The 2 SSDs don't make sense, just get 1 4TB drive. It's more reliable and will perform about the same. 
  6. $300 for that PSU is a ripoff. You can get a similar PSU for about half the price. 
  7. Get a Windows key from a reseller for $20, don't spend full price on it. 
  8. Price wise the UNI fans make little sense. They're double the price of the Arctic P12 RGB fans which perform just as good if not better, and if you're wiling to drop some RGB you can get 15 P12s for the price of the Uni fans. I get they look good and they're kinda convenient to have just one cable, but at the same time you're spending a lot for worse performance.

This system would perform better and is $100 less. It's still kinda silly, but it makes more sense than the original. What I would actually go for is this: https://pcpartpicker.com/list/399gnt

It's a lot more practical all around. The monitor configuration I'd admit is kinda dumb, but upgrading your monitors makes a lot more sense than trying to go 12900K instead a 12700.

My question is not if this is overkill in anyway. I like just got new monitors a couple months ago. My question is if the list is anygood.
