Hello, I am looking to build a new PC, I will be using it to play video games and do computer programming, I am a bit of a newbie in PC building so I went to Canada computers and they recommended a build. my budget is $2500 - $3000 CAD preferably taxes in lol. here is the build they suggested: Two notes: I was thinking of adding 3 fans to the front of the case since theres room. and I was considering upgrading the GPU to the 7900 XT instead. Let me know what you think, Thank you!

I was thinking of adding 3 fans to the front of the case since theres room. and I was considering upgrading the GPU to the 7900 XT instead.
I would probably get 2 x 140mm as they push out just as much air and would be quieter as they don't run as fast. The PSU shroud seems to block off any air you would get from bottom 120mm anyway.

PSU would support GPU as well, and since its price has dropped since launch, I would grab it too. They aren't bad GPU from what I can tell.

System looks okay to me.

The 4000D is a hose job imo. It's a scam to get buyers to purchase extra Corsair case fans.

Here's another option to have a look at. The 120mm fan goes inside the back of that case for a rear exhaust fan.
