Gaming PC build help

I am building a gaming PC and using an Intel i7-13700k cpu that I already have.
Could anyone help me decide which MB, SSD, Memory and PSU that would work well using the i7?

I was thinking of using a WD Black 2TB SN850X for the SSD.
A Radeon RX 7800 xt for the GPU.
A Thermalright Peerless Assassin 120 argb CPU cooler or a Thermalright Phantom Spirit 120
A Thermalright ToughpowerGF1 series 850W PSU.
2x16GB Corair Vengeance RGB DDR5 6000 Ram.


What are your opinions on this? Anything that you would change?
 
Welcome to the forum :)

What kind of games—eg fast modern action or sedate older turn-based?

What resolution and frequency do you want—eg 1080p or 4K, 60Hz or 144?

What's your country, budget, preferred retailers?
To be honest, IDK. I am just getting into gaming, but I want a PC that can do the better games out and hopefully, those that come out in the near future.

I am U.S., $1500, online only retailers and I am not sure about the resolution and frequency. Games will probably be both old school as well as new school.

I think that I have narrowed down the MB to the MSI Mag Z790 Tomahawk.

Why_Me - thanks for the help, but, as I said in the first post, I already have the Intel i7-13700k CPU, so I need components to go with that.

What do you think of the motherboard being the MSI Mag Z790 Tomahawk? What about the other components I chose in my original post?

The Tomahawk is a solid board ^^ With that said try and save money where you can so that you don't short yourself elsewhere such as the gpu.

Thanks.
I was thinking of getting the Radeon RX 7800 XT GPU, do you think that is a good choice?
What memory would you suggest getting for this set up @32GB? What brands are good?
