Updated Build Plan

Budget (including currency): At most $1500 USD

Country: United States of America

Games, programs or workloads that it will be used for: Mc, Roblox, GTA, Cyberpunk, Valorant, Fortnite. I will also be using for work, and maybe rendering. 

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 made a build on pcpartpicker in the summer of last year I believe and since then I haven't really touched it. However yesterday I began looking at it again but realized my original build was lost so I had to make a new one. I'm mostly just going to play games on it, maybe do a little scripting for roblox, and do work on it. As this is my first computer I don't want to overspend, so I've my budget to 1500 dollars USD (Lower is preferred but I am able to manage 1500). Is that reasonable? This is my new build, what do yall think?

For the cooler, I just wanted to future proof in case I get a new CPU or GPU that requires a more beefy cooling system. Should I still replace it with the fan?

You don't indicate the rendering engine that will be used. It might affect choice of GPU.

 

A 360 AIO offers more cooling performance than needed.

 

DDR5-6000 CL30 is the current memory sweet spot for AMD. The OP memory kit has XMP profiles. Using a memory kit with EXPO profiles would be better.

 

The mATX motherboard will look a bit odd in the ATX case.

 

Consider a 2TB NVMe drive.

 

The NV 5 has no stock fans. 

80+ ratings certify electrical efficiency. Not quality.

Whats a mid-tower/full-tower case that would look better?

Also, is it worth more to get a 6800 or 7800? I trying to find which one would be more bang for buck and not be too expensive.

Its a matter of personal taste. There is nothing wrong with the NV5, one simply has to added the cost of a few fans.

 

A good case, not the best looking, but we'll priced is the Lancool 216. Comes with two 160 mm front and 120 mm rear fans. Several models.

 

You might also look at the new Phanteks XT Pro Ultra. Comes with 4x140 mm D-RGB fans.
