I would like to build my first pc, and have been saving up for a few years now. I put together this pc, but would like to hear some more qualified people opinion on it. Im also not entirely sure which companys gpu, storage, and psu I should use. I dont mind spending a little extra on rgb just not crazy amounts. I will mostly use the pc for heavy gaming and school work. It would also be nice to know which parts I should upgrade in the future. Thank you for the helpful feedback in advance!

Solid build :)

AMD option. The 7800X3D is on average a bit faster than the 13600K/13700K in games, not that you'd notice. But the main thing is theres a good chance you'll be able to upgrade the CPU to something faster in a few years if AMD keeps the same socket around as long as they did last time.

Games take advantage of low latency so that CL40 RAM you have is going to be a bottleneck. The difference between a locked i7 and unlocked i7 is 1 - 2 frames per second on average. btw knowing your monitor resolution would be a big help to us.

Remember every F sku on 12/13th gen has vccsa locked to 0.95v max iirc, so careful recommending anything past stock 5600
 
real good build, if you can fit 7800x3d in the budget, hell yeah. I went for the budget option.
there's no hdd tho.
Ahh yea I forgot the big HDD. A 4TB Seagate Barracuda or WD Blue is around $70 these days, depending on the use would be fine for mass storage IMO.

I didnt know about this, thanks. Dont have any direct experience, but seems people are saying in general 6000 mt/s is normally achievable but above that can be hairy if youre unlucky? Always an option to try a lower speed profile if the fastest doesnt work.

I think most 12400f's topped at 5600 for ddr5 and 3600 for ddr4, 13th gen could be better. Just assuming the safe option here.
