(yes this is more than $800, but the idea is buy this w/o the GPU for ~$600 And instead try and find a used RX 5600 XT for $100. later buy a RX 7700 XT and sell the 5600 XT and then pair 7600X with an RX 7800 XT or 4070 Super for 1440 later on)

this was a build that im considering most but i really wanna make sure im getting what i want (the ability to play smoothly)
i did another post and someone said the gpu would be too weak if i went the upgrade route? so is that true or, i genuinely cant tell
ive looked around and i keep getting in between amd5 with ddr5 and intel ddr4/5, and i dont understand either, some say amd is better for budget builds while others use intel?
i thought ddr5 was faster but some say i should go with ddr4 even with amd5 but wouldnt amd5 ddr5 harvest more worth?
im aware theres a new generation coming so should i just await or would it be optimal to build now?
sorry for all the questions im just confused

ty for your help

The Gigabyte Eagle comes with the old school 1G LAN and the 7600X isn't worth choosing over the 7600 (non X).

Most all new boards come with a 2.5G LAN (internet). Example:

LAN: Realtek 8125BG 2.5G LAN
