AM5 is like 2 weeks away, so not sure it is the best time to be building. Games do not need a 980 pro. In many cases, a sata ssd is enough, to be honest. Also with modern games being so huge, 1tb isn't gonna last long. That seems like a terrible buy, for 2200, when you can get an i7 12700k, even with DDR5, for that price. Not that I would rush out and buy one, given how close Ryzen 7000 is.

I'd wait until next month when Intels Rocket Lake cpu's are released and compare the reviews to AMD's new line of cpu's due out soon.
