Buying Parts Soon. Tell me if I should change anything.

Hello, my name is Patrick. I am 15 years old and I have been on this journey to build my first ever pc for awhile now. And I think I have finely got the perfect build. I want a pc that can run games at 1080p max settings. with atleast 60fps while live streaming and/or recording. I will have 3 monitors. one at 1080p 100+ hz. and 2 others at 60hz 1080p. Tell me if I need to change anything. Is my motherbored good? Is my CPU and GPU good for what I need it for? I just need opinions.

Looks like a solid build that will do what you want it too very well. However a CD reader for $89 is quite un-needed unless you have a library of old games and movies you need to watch off a disk. Im a "power user" of PCs and have been for like 4-5 years. I have not ONCE needed to use a physical disc, ever. And If I needed to do something with it, I can do it with a USB or CD player emulator (free).

One could argue those fans aren't worth it either, however it will certainly improve airflow. for me $90 is a steep price for very marginal airflow improvement depending on what fans the case will come with.

Consider some changes.

 

Replace the two drives with a 1TB ssd.

 

Use a 550W psu. It has more than enough capacity.

 

Use the three stock case fans and don't bother with the Corsair ML fans.

 

The Windows 10 OEM license, at least in N.Am., does not permit use in DIY builds. One is supposed to use a retail license.

 

As others have noted, unless you plan to watch and/or burn Blu-Ray disks, the optical drive is overkill.
