So this is the first time I'm building a pc for myself. I've built one before for my brother, but it was following off a youtube video with a parts list. This time I went all on my own and found some parts that I looked alright (I think?) I'd like some feedback on what could be adjusted for a better experience. I primarily play fighting games and fps games, as well as doing digital art in CSP.
note: I already have things like thermal paste, keyboard, mouse, etc. That, and my budget is aiming for 2000-2500 USD.
Here's the parts list:
CPU: Intel - Core i7-12700K Alder Lake 3.6GHz Twelve-Core LGA 1700 Boxed Processor - Heatsink Not Included
Motherboard: ASUS - Z690-P PRIME WiFi DDR5 Intel LGA 1700 ATX Motherboard
RAM: Corsair - Vengeance RGB 64GB (2 x 32GB) DDR5-5600 PC5-44800 CL40 Dual Channel Desktop Memory Kit CMH64GX5M2B5600 - Black
Case: Lian Li - O11 Dynamic EVO Tempered Glass ATX Mid-Tower Computer Case - White
Power Supply: Corsair - RM750 750 Watt 80 Plus Gold ATX Fully Modular Power Supply - White
Video Card: Zotac - NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060 Twin Edge Overclocked Dual-Fan 12GB GDDR6 PCIe 4.0 Graphics Card
2.5" SSD: Samsung - 870 EVO 2TB SSD 3-bit MLC V-NAND SATA III 6Gb/s 2.5" Internal Solid State Drive
M.2 / NVMe SSD: Samsung - 980 Pro SSD 1TB M.2 NVMe Interface PCIe Gen 4x4 Internal Solid State Drive with V-NAND 3 bit MLC Technology (MZ-V8P1T0B)
Hard Drive: Seagate - BarraCuda 2TB 7200 RPM SATA III 6Gb/s 3.5" Internal SMR Hard Drive
Heatsink: Deep Cool - AK400 Performance CPU Cooler - Black
Case Fans: Lian Li - Uni Fan SL120 V2 Fluid Dynamic Bearing 120mm Case Fan - White 3 Pack
Everything looks great! My only suggestion would be to skip the 2.5" 2TB SSD for a Samsung NVMe 2T for only $10 more and upgrade the cooler to the AS500 or the AK620 in white....
I would agree with @Lambdaben, you would probably want to look into a little bit of a higher-end air cooler if you wish to go that route, otherwise it all looks solid.
