New PC Builder, Dream to Stream! :) - Needs Advice

Hey guys! My name is Jkobe, :)  I'm new here and wanted to know if I could get some feedback on my parts list. I'm looking to play War Zone and stream to help pass the time during COVID. I did try to choose some parts with a little RGB for aesthetic purposes but am open to any suggestions. Saving money is always a plus but as long as I'm paying for quality I'm okay with it. I want to try to stay around $1200 but am happy to take any suggestions. Thanks guys!

  • Overall, it's a solid build. If you don't need all that storage, I might drop the Seagate and get the TLC version of the Inland NVME drive instead of the QLC. With the RAM, 3200 on AMD is alright, but you can hit 3600 easily and you can find 3600 CL16 RAM in the same price range as the Crucial Ballistix, I'd go for it.

    You seem to have made some good choices within your budget.
