I am trying to make a new build based around the RTX 3060 Ti. Do you guys think this is fine? Do you propose any changes?

Your processor will allow you to go to DDR4-2666MHz, so either cut down on the ram or up the processor and motherboard. Outside of that, build looks good. Budget is a 1,000UK pound?
According to this page the motherboard supports 2933Mhz RAM so I figured buying 3000Mhz RAM is a good idea.
Are you saying that because of the CPU I won't be able to use more than 2666Mhz even if the motherboard supports it?

I don't have a budget but I don't want to spend more than necessary and since the build revolves around the RTX 3060 Ti I won't buy a better CPU unless it is a bottleneck.

  • 4x DDR4 memory slots, support up to 128GB 1
  • Intel® Core™ i7/i9
    • Support DDR4-2933 Memory (Max.)
  • Intel® Core™ i5 (Below)
    • Supports DDR4-2666 Memory (Max.
  • Edit the 3000 memory should work but only up to 2666 speed.

I'd change up the board to a B560 so that you can run 3200Mhz RAM which does improve your FPS for that 10th gen cpu you have in your build.

The green highlight in those benchmarks is that cpu paired up with 3200Mhz RAM.

I have changed the motherboard and also upgraded the CPU to the 11400F since it isn't much of a price difference.
With this I should also be ready for DirectStorage right? The only thing that isn't PCI-E 4.0 is the M.2 but I have read that this is not necessary for RTX IO.
