if you dont need all 128gb id reccomend cutting down to 96gb with a 2x48 kit cause quad rank runs like crap on ddr5 and it wont be fun trying to get it to any half decent speed

why not just go for 2x2 instead of 1x3? pretty strange storage layout unless ypu wanna triple boot os or something like that

 

also 970 evo are outdated and ridicolously overpriced, theyve been superseded by much faster and cheaper high end gen4 ssds like the m482 gm7000 250s/h, etc. and then theres gen5 ssds like the t700/t705 ontop of that

depends on what features and i/o you want

at this budget even if you waste a ton of money on 4tb gen5 ssds and high end boards youll still have plenty of budget left so you can just go wild given the budget

 

only thing that you might have to consider is watercooling capabilites if you wish to do custom loop otherwise this is completely personal preference wether you want a fishtank like the o11d, a wooden case like the fractal north, or just specific case designs like the fractal torrent, 4000/5000d airflow, lancool iii, etc.

this i have no clue on as i dont really look at networking stuff and all i know is if you want something faster than 2.5gbit then there should be plenty of 10gbit lan cards available like this, just check the port to make sure its the kind you want be it regular rj45 or sfp

I use these and they're great

but if you want something that has an Intel controller you could get this

Soundcards have been dead for a decade. The onboard audio is about as clean as you can get while being inside a PC case with all the concomitant EM noise. 
Use an external DAC instead. Schiit makes some topflight ones but I'm no audiophile

Are you dead set on Intel? This chip is known to be an absolute *furnace* and nearly impossible to cool. A 7800X3D would likely serve you better in gaming and run FAR cooler.
Also, with new CPUs coming out very soon, I would *definitely* recommend waiting for reviews

Hop to AM5. The 7800X3D shouldn't be capable of boiling an egg as much as the i9-14900KF.
If you already have it, you should get a decent AIO. 360mm is ideal.

That's a very decent amount of RAM. Unlike what the others said, I'd say that you can keep your RAM as is. As unstable it may be, it could be useful, especially for SolidWorks. I could be mistaken, though.

Considering I recommended you to hop to AM5, I'd recommend you get a B-series or X-series AMD motherboard, depending on what you want from the BIOS.

If you do stay with Intel, your current choice is good as is.

Really depends on how you'll be cooling it. Find one that can fit a 360mm AIO and you should be fine.

Depends on how your network is set up. If you have gigabit internet, you should just stick to the ethernet port on the motherboard, as that one is usually gigabit, if not 2.5 gigabit.

Most motherboard's audio jacks are already fairly good. Are you planning to hook up your PC to a stereo?

Don't tell me to upgrade. I would've done so if I could.

The i9-14900K is just $1 more than the KF.

 

Consider a motherboard with onboard 10 Gb/s NIC and decent sound.

 

Consider higher performance NVMe drives. Given the cost differential, 2 TB units are a good choice.

 

If one wants to run 192GB of memory it would be prudent to get a 4x48GB kit on the motherboard memory QVL. For reliability it also makes sense to take the small performance hit.

-I need 128gb of RAM for IssacSim

 

-I already have the 970 evos from other projects.  

 

-AMD Ryzen 7 7800X3D has fewer cores and a lower clock speed

@vanpuffelen

-soundcards: doesnt seem like there is much benefit to having one.  I have a legit audiophile setup that can make the difference matter. Nelson Pass first watt Class A Amp and Zu audio speaker set
