Need advice and help with choosing pc parts for first gaming pc.

Options
It’s gonna be my first gaming pc and I wanted to know if this will allow me to play games without problems especially with modding games while having multiple tabs open while playing, as well as if I should change any parts and what monitor should I get along with it. $1,000~2,000.

    Hello @AndrewTheBuilder! The overall build looks pretty solid, however, I do recommend sticking with SSDs instead of hard drive as the read and write speeds for them are significantly better. For the monitors are you looking for dual or triple? Is there any specific resolution you are looking to play on?

    Right now, I'm just planning on getting a single monitor then a duel later down the line and the resolution would be 1080p to 1440p. also what SSDs would you recommend instead of a hard drive.

    My personal recommendation for a monitor would be the ASUS VG27AQL1A 27" 2K QHD (SKU: 171710)! I have this monitor at home and it is amazing :) Regarding SSDs are you looking to stay with SATA or M.2?

    Looking at your board it appears that you have 3 M.2 slots with thermal protection available with one that is going to be taken by your selected Samsung 990 PRO 2TB. I recommend getting 1 more of the same drive that way you can keep your operating system and game files separate. You can always leave the other slot empty in case you need to expand in the future.
