Looking to build a high-end gaming pc. Looking for advice on the pcpartpicker list I have made so far.

Budget (including currency): Flexible but no more than ~$4000

Country: USA

Games, programs or workloads that it will be used for: Microsoft Flight Simulator, other triple A games for the next few generations.

Other details (existing parts lists, whether any peripherals are needed, what you're upgrading from, when you're going to buy, what resolution and refresh rate you want to play at, etc):

https://pcpartpicker.com/list/XxMw78 I put the i9-12900kf here so I can update the GPU in maybe 5-10 years. I’m going to be using this as a high end gaming build. It will also be custom water cooled (likely using the Corsair builder) as well. Are there areas I should save money or sprawl out for more? I have a lot of games, hence the 10tb of total storage.

I don't recommend the 3080 Ti, because it's price is too high. A 3080 12gb or RX 6900 XT will be cheaper while performing pretty similar (at 4k, at lower resolutions 6900 XT is faster). You could also get a 6950 XT, still cheaper and quite a bit faster, 3090 Ti performance. Only reason to not get AMD is if you really care about ray tracing. 

 

The MSI SPATIUM M470 is also a better SSD while costing less.

 

You could save some money with DDR4 RAM (not a noticeable difference) and a smaller PSU if you want. Apart from that it looks good. The list should look something like this.

Try this on for size. Good bang-for-the-buck... I have the same GPU with a 5900X, a 1TB SN570 and a 6TB WD Black.

That HDD would be the absolute slowest part of the build. It will not boot or load any game well at all. I would recommend starting off with 6TB of m.2 nvme ssd storage. You can always add more storage, but I definitely do not recommend that HDD.
