How does my build look?


Hello! I'm relatively new to computer building, and have put together a potential build that I hope to get up and running later this week if possible. My budget is capped at 1500, and I intend to use the computer for relatively high-end gaming on AAA titles and large Minecraft modpacks with shaders. I 've listed the parts below. I'd appreciate if anyone could let me know if the build looks good, or if there's anywhere I can improve. I also want to make sure I have all the ports I'll need as I made that mistake last time shopping for a PC. I currently make use of 1 HDMI port, 2 Display ports, 4 USB 3.0 ports, and 1 USB C port. Thanks!

    I recommend when you come into one of our store that you get this bundle

    It will be cheaper than those 3 parts together and it's a better processor. You will however need a cooler for it.

    This is a good cooler for that CPU. You will not need that thermal paste. It comes with the cooler. You are also missing an Operating system. I recommend Windows 11 Home.

    I hope this helps! A BYO associate at the store you go to can help you with minor tweaks and additional recommendations as well. There are other options that can work better for your situation!
