New Gaming Build for a average builder


My gaming rig is quite outdated and I'm getting the itch to build a Next Gen gaming rig. Below is what I've purchased so far and my idea for the build. I'm looking to play Starfield & Baldur Gate 3 at a decent resolution. It does not have to be max everything, but my current rig is struggling to run them at low resolution, so an improvement is needed. I wanted to see what everyone's opinion on the build is. I'm tryin to keep the build under $2.300 if possible.

    I do not see any issues with your choices, those parts would all be compatible and would fit well into your price range. For the graphics card, at pretty much the same price you might want to look into the RTX 4070 Super that just released, it's pretty much the same price point dependent on model with improved performance.
