Help with NO GPU build


Any advice on different/better parts for my no GPU build? 

I WILL be adding something like a 3060 ti or 6700 xt down the road.

I chose core i5 12600k for CPU with graphics since Ryzen G series dont seem to have the muscle left over to run add-on GPU as well. Agree? (I am an AMD fan, but looks like the i5 wins here)

Im not sure if I missed any tiny details in this build... 

Any advice is greatly appreciated. Im not building an FPS monster but my target is solid 1440p gaming in the end with add-on GPU mentioned above.

Core i5 12600k

G.Skill Ripjaws V 16GB 3600 CL16

Thermaltake S300 ATX case

MSI Mag Core Liquid 360mm aRGB Water cooling
