Hi everybody,

I hope it's ok I make this post in euro valuta and link to a Dutch website.
As I have been saving for a long time I finally have enough money to spend on a gaming "beast".
My main concern is being able to play games in 4k resolution combined with ray tracing at 60+ fps and also have a pc that is futureproof for many years to come.
The new pc will be connected to an LG C9 65 inch tv.

I was wondering what your opinion would be about the following components?
Any suggestions or things you would do differently?

AMD Ryzen 9 5900X - CPU

ASUS ROG STRIX X570-F GAMING - Motherboard

G.Skill Trident Royal F4-4000C19D-32GTRS - Memory

MSI GeForce RTX 3080 SUPRIM X 10G - GPU

Samsung 870 QVO 2TB - SSD

Seagate FireCuda 520 SSD 1TB - SSD (will be the boot partition)

CORSAIR RMx Series RM850x - 2018 Edition - PSU

Sharkoon RGB LIT 200 - Case

Corsair H115i RGB PLATINUM - CPU cooling

ARCTIC MX-4 - Thermal paste

Many thanks for your replies and any help is greatly appreciated!
