New PC gamer, switching from xbox series x. Worked with some IT friends and staff at local pc store. Have most of the parts and will be doing my first build with knowledgable friends who do this for a living. Just curious to have you all rate/inspect my build for issues. I will only be using this Warzone/Call of duty games. I know this build is overkill probably, but I want the best fps and overall look while playing.

Like I said, I am a PC newbie, so please let me know what you think of this build for my sole purpose of gaming. Thank you.
Greetings. if all of those parts fit into your budget for your PC, I don't see any issues there, it should be a great gaming PC!
Thank you. I was worried about the cooling, so many have told me to stay away from liquid, wasn't sure if the heatsink and fans with tower were enough for what I am going to be using it for?
That should still be fine. If you want a slightly nicer air cooler for just a bit more, you could go for a Noctua U14S or U12S https://www.microcenter.com/product/617831/noctua-nh-u12s-cpu-cooler or https://www.microcenter.com/product/639543/noctua-nh-u14s-cpu-cooler
You wouldn't have to liquid cool that processor.
You're welcome, please let us know if you have any other questions!
might want to up the power supply a bit as the card Recommended Power is 750 Watts min
A great choice. I have the NH-D15 and love it.
