Seeking help/inspiration for MC custom build similar to PowerSpec G472


Hello! I am seeking some opinions on custom build components/options through MicroCenter for a computer very similar to the PowerSpec G472 desktop. While nearly all of the CPU specs, generation, case color/size, price point ($2,500 or less) etc. of the G472 appeal, I was seeking a computer/motherboard that would support an optical audio connection without having to add a separate audio card to preserve future expansion options. Could the Community or MC specialists kindly suggest either custom build options or a similar pre-built computer to consider? Thank you in advance for your assistance!

    ASUS Strix Z790-F Gaming WIFI

    This was one of our options for this model. We had issues with the PCIe ejection button housing blocking our GPU support bracket, but this board should work just fine for you and offer the optical audio port.

    Powerspec is the house brand so if there's one that's almost but not quite right just stop by the byopc section of your local store and say basically what you posted. They'll get you set up, no problem.
