First Build

Budget (including currency): $1200ish-$1300ish

Country: USA
Games, programs or workloads that it will be used for: GTA, Farming simulator, Call of duty, and college.

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): 

I have two monitors already. One is a 1080p 165hz and the other is 1080p 60hz. I already have keyboard mouse and headphones. I can upgrade monitors down the line if needed. I just want a computer now.

crammed a 12600k and 3070 in the budget

 

idk how its possible but it is

Cutting it close with that PSU.  I’d just stick with a 12400f and get a good PSU.

About what id recommend 

https://pcpartpicker.com/list/wrdsmr

12400 is a solid cpu for gaming 

Cheapest 16gb kit of ram

Better gpu

 

 

a 6800 is slightly better than a 6700xt, but not $200 better.  And the red devil cooler is also preferable to the red dragon.

The sign is a subtle joke. The shop is called "Sneed's Feed & Seed", where feed and seed both end in the sound "-eed", thus rhyming with the name of the owner, Sneed. The sign says that the shop was "Formerly Chuck's", implying that the two words beginning with "F" and "S" would have ended with "-uck", rhyming with "Chuck". So, when Chuck owned the shop, it would have been called "Chuck's Feeduck and Seeduck".

First of all, your system isn't gonna suddenly consume an extra 150w of power. If you plan to upgrade to future hardware, you can always undervolt. You could probably shave off 100w off of an rtx 3080/3090 by undervolting without losing ANY performance.

For a 1080p system, the 6600xt should play everything at MAX easily.

If you wanna go overkill, $1000 will get you something much better, but beyond this there’s not much to be gained for your money;

Farming Sim supports FSR 2.0, while COD does so with DLSS only. So it's kind of a double edged sword there if you're maining either one of the two games. Personally, I'd pick the better design 6700 for cheaper and call it a day.

I plan to get a better monitor in the future. So do you think it would be better to plan ahead and get the 6800 or would the 6700xt run fine on 1440p at high refresh rates?

Well actually, 3000 series cards have known transient power spikes so its definitely a possibility for a 650 to power off during intense gaming sessions

It was in the budget so I'd assume it'd be preferable to a 6700xt, youre

probably paying for the extra vram that the card gives, not that games utilize 16gb anyway. Depends on what you play though since iirc the 6800 has more rt cores than the 6700xt

have you ever heard of the word undervolting

 

you can just undervolt the gpu

 

reduces gpu power consumption by like 50-100 watts

Or you can just get a higher wattage psu.

Allows for a better upgrade path and will most likely eliminate power spikes that will shut your pc off

2x to 2.5x is about what you'd expect from a transient power draw so imo it wouldn't make sense to be on the line of that with a 650 psu

Sure you could undervolt it but how much performance would you lose I'd your undervolt would eliminate 100 watts of power draw. How would you undervolt I? 800mV at 1700mhz? Keep in mind I certainly don't know the most at undervolting and oc but that'll give you your wattage decrease but it'll probably also give you a perfromance decrease

undervolting will not decrease performance (if done right)

 

to eliminate power spikes, you could spend extra money on a better psu or you can undervolt for free

I'd rather pony 25 bucks up more and get a 750W PSU, doesn't hurt anything at that point. Would simply be the more sensible choice, and the PSU's fan wouldn't ramp out in certain cases...

idk how its possible but it is

Flying far too close to the sun. 

6 pipe cooler won't be enough for a 125W CPU.

650W is far too little. Might just work if you yolo it but I wouldn't try that myself.

You have a case which is nice but you don't have any extra fans to complete the airflow. Will be pretty static. 

 

Something like this is far safer, cheaper and would perform the same if not better with the benefit of not thermal throttling:
