Need Help Optimizing Parts List

First Comment
edited June 22 in Help Choosing Parts

I am looking to build my first gaming desktop (I have a laptop currently). I would like to keep my budget under $2000, but I can stretch it if needed. I already have an NVME SSD I bought for my laptop a year or so ago so that should work for the computer. I am just looking for some input on optimizing the parts (list is below), mostly wondering about the GPU and what would work best. If the price could be dropped that would also be great. Micro Center had a bundle deal for the motherboard, CPU, and RAM so that was the reason I picked those. Help would be greatly appreciated!

Here is the list and Prices:

  • AMD Ryzen 9 7900X, ASUS B650E-F ROG Strix Gaming WiFi, G.Skill Flare X5 Series 32GB DDR5-6000 Kit, Computer Build Bundle - $579
  • AMD - Ryzen 9 7900X Raphael AM5 4.7GHz 12-Core Boxed Processor - Heatsink Not Included - $349 $234
  • ASUS - B650E-F ROG STRIX GAMING WIFI AMD AM5 ATX Motherboard - $289 $240
  • G.Skill - Flare X5 Series 32GB (2 x 16GB) DDR5-6000 PC5-48000 CL32 Dual Channel Desktop Memory Kit F5-6000J3238F16GX2-FX5 - Black - $120 $109
  • Gigabyte - NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4080 Super Windforce V2 Triple Fan 16GB GDDR6X PCIe 4.0 Graphics Card - $1000

(It is worth noting that I already have peripherals from my laptop but I might need a new monitor)
