I don't game right now at all but love RPG or crash and smash games on play station.  I need your help to see if I am over killing this for a nub like myself .  I used Assassin's Creed Odyssey as a base for what I want to play.  Is there a way to say some $$$ but still have room to grow as games get even better? Am I missing something and need to suck it up and drop a little more $$$?

    So it looks like the total for your build there is $2319.82 before taxes. There's some areas where you're going overkill and we could save some cost to get better performance out of your system. 

    32GB of RAM is way more than you need just for gaming, 16GB would be plenty. I also wouldn't recommend the 3800X. There's not enough performance benefit to justify the price increase over the 3700X, it's only 1-2% in the best case scenario. I would either go with the 3700X, or if you're exclusively gaming the i5-10600k instead since it's superior in gaming applications. 

    Windows 10 Pro isn't really necessary either unless it has specific functions you need. Pro editions of Windows are really designed for business use and most home users don't need the extra features it provides. 

    You could save cost in other areas to upgrade your GPU as well. The PC-O11 Dynamic is a great case, but if you switched to something like a Fractal Design Meshify C, you can save some on the case and lose some of the extra fans. 

    I would personally do something like this:


    By making the changes I listed, we have a system with an RTX 2070 Super which is a big upgrade over the RTX 2060. We also switch to a nice 2TB total of SSD storage with two 1TB NVMe drives, and a 2TB 7200RPM hard drive for backup or extra storage if you need. The case may not be quite as pretty as the PC-O11 but you'll still have good airflow and personally I think the Meshify C still looks fine. If you really want the PC-O11, you can get rid of one of the SSDs.
