I have all the peripherals I need (1080p 144hz monitor), I'm planning on replacing my current, janky build and giving it to my younger brother before I go to college if all goes well.  I've tinkered with the parts list for a while, and I'm hoping to snipe the graphics card at a retail location for MSRP ($500 USD).  I'm also buying a steam deck soon, so I'm really trying to avoid going over budget.  I just want to be absolutely sure I'm getting the most bang for my buck possible.

Very good list of components, not much I would change.

 

The only thing I find a bit overpriced is the motherboard. Could go with this one from Gigabyte, would probably be about the same level as the Asus Prime:

In all honesty, I'm not sure how to, or even what kind of performance boost it would give me.  As of now, I have no intention of overclocking, but it's possible I would try sometime down the line

I see, when you going to overclock ask for help so you wont be in danger also you might need a better cpu cooler if you going to overclock since theres 2 ways of overclocking slightly-mid and the other one is heavy
