Nice set up, you are def. covered for streaming anytime you want. What are you gaming at? 4k, 2k, ultrawide? I have an EVGA 3070ti and am surprised you were able to get a 3070ti FE were you able to pick it up in a Bestbuy? Just remember hearing that the founders edition were real hard to come by, so thats good too! Anyways, this card crushes every game i throw at it at 1440p without breaking a sweat, 4k takes more but still, very acceptable 4k 60+ fps card.

Currently gaming at 1080p 16:9 but going to go to 1440p eventually. I picked it up in the BB in person drop on July 20. Are there any big negatives for anything in my build. Is the b550 tomahawk a good board for $160 or is there a better board you would get

ok, i thought it was, i heard they had 3070ti's but didnt know they were FE's and no you will be just fine. 850w is good enough for all that even if you want to OC.
