Need Sugesstion - For My High-End PC Gmaing Build

I am seeking your suggestions related to my processor and motherboard because I'm very confused. Do I need to change anything, or is this the perfect pick for my setup? Basically, I need a high-end build that can handle AAA games like COD (War Zone), Dota 2, GTA V, etc.

I wanna be a professional gamer and streamer, and this is my 1st step toward that goal. I'm both excited and worried about this decision, and I don't want to make any hasty choices. So please help me pick the best and high-end PC parts for my build.

Well, to be honest for most AAA games, u won't need that high-end Processor ... mine is Ryzen 5900X with 64Gig RAM .. and it's sporting a 3060ti. And it's running those games and rest in High/ultra with decent FPS, Ofcourse a 3070ti or 3080ti will do a much better job.

My 2 cent here would be to focus more on the GPU, I would prefer ASUS over Gigabyte... ( personal preference).. and I would suggest going for 2 nVME SSD .. one for your boot drive ( OS) and another one for your games.

usually, 500GB 970 Evo for your boot drive should be just fine. for your games, I would suggest one more 1TB SSD (if not 2TB). That way your game won't bottleneck.

Another thing to look for when building, please make sure your wifi is capable enough, whichever of these new mobos you're buying needs to have a strong card built-in, or it's just as good to have a killer Land port in-built and use that.

Best of luck.

I should warn that your chosen motherboard is NOT compatible with the case you have chosen. The Meshify Mini C officially lists compatibility as being mATX and ITX. While the X670e Aorus Elite AX is a full-sized ATX.

You either need to go for a bigger case OR a smaller motherboard.

Thing about picking motherboards. Getting the "flagship chipset" rarely actually gets you anything. It is all about whether it has enough "I/O" like NVMe/SATA/PCIe slots for your build. The X670(e) is often kind of overkill unless you plan to use everything it provides and you will get the exact same performance if you use a B650 board instead.
