I want to build a gaming pc for the first time, and I don't know exactly what I am doing. I have spent hours comparing parts, and scowering the internet for different ideas, I have finally narrowed down all of the parts to one build. I want to know someone's thoughts, on the parts and if they will all work properly when built. Again, I don't know what I'm doing so telling me that everything is wrong would be helpful, any advice you have I will take. Thanks to anyonme who helps

Greetings. You wouldn't run in to any issues with those parts, they are all compatible. You don't have an OS listed and you might want to consider adding more storage depending on the games, programs, etc. you plan on using/playing as you can run through 1TB quickly.
Over all this is an decent build, just a few advices to make it better.
1.Agree with Yingdong, get probably the Intel Core i5-12600K or the Ryzen 7 5800X(as both are around $300 or less rn) as it is more feature packed, and packs better performance.
2.Probably aim for a slightly higher clocked memory, or even more memory, as right now RAM(at least DDR4 is fairly cheap).
3.Honestly, if you can get a RTX 3080 for a decent price(like below $800), go for it. However, the RX 6800, 6800 XT, 6900, or 6900 XT are similar or better in pure rasterization performance, if you aren't keen for the DLSS or better Ray Tracing. They're also in stock for a cheaper price typically, so maybe check those graphics cards out.
3080 really are priced high right now; I have a 6800XT and it's pretty unstoppable for a lot less $$. Recommend you reconsider unless you just have cash to burn.
