Welcome to the forum :)

I'm not a hardware guy, someone more knowledgeable should be along soon.

In the meantime, please provide some extra info they'll need:
PC uses
If gaming, what kind—fast action, or slower calmer
If gaming, what resolution
get a 2x8, or better a 2x16 ddr5 kit.
you can change that 14900k to 13700k, won't make a difference, unless you do video eiditing work for a living.
if you want a quiet 4070ti for near msrp, look for pny xlr8
