Hello all, first time PC builder here
My current setup is a 2019 Zenbook Pro Duo 4k laptop i7-950H with a 2060
I basically want this new setup to last me 3-4 years while remaining competent enough to run most games at 1440p (I won't have a 4k monitor so no reason for that) and around 60-140fps. I will likely use it to web browse but my laptop will remain my work computer for multitasking. This setup cost does not include the cost of a monitor or keyboard/mouse.
I understand new games make predicting the future of a setup impossible, but based on what this build is, do you think it's a substantial enough upgrade and competitive enough to last that amount of time without needing upgrades?
I've been told the jump up from 7700x to 7800x3d is not worth the 300 dollars or so I'm saving by using the 7700x bundle.
Lastly, I intend to wait for Black Friday/Cyber Monday for the best deals. If there is anything here that is way too overkill let me know (I'm fine with some overkill for the future). The listed prices for the CPU, Mobo, and Memory are due to a 399.99 bundle on Microcenter.
P.S. I am undecided on the PC Case, I love the look of the Fractal North but have heard its pretty loud? Any recommendations?
Thanks, i greatly appreciate it.

Couple changes i would make
Overall the list is really good, i just would save some money in those areas i listed. id include sources but im not sure of microcenters policies on using links.
As a user of the Fractal North, I've got the black mesh version. The aesthetics of the case are really nice with a clean look the wood on the front makes a great accent that is not on any other case widely available.
