Hey, im planning to build myself a new pc with around 1200€ budget (1200€ is max im willing to pay for new pc, but cheaper the price, better for me).
Planning to buy these items. Do they fit together or should i swap anything?

Cpu: i5-11400f (~170€)

mobo: gigabyte b560hd3 (~130€)

Gpu: MSI GTX 1080 Gaming X 8GB (~500€ used)

Ram: kingston fury beast ddr4 16 gb cl16 3200 mhz (~76€)

Psu: Corsair rm750 750w (~110€)

cpu cooler: NZXT CPU COOLER KRAKEN M22 120-mm (~70€) (watercooled AIO) or Arctic Freezer 34 eSports Duo 2x 120mm (~40€) (aircooled)

case: nzxt h510 atx mid tower (~80€)

Im mostly gonna play escape from tarkov, csgo and a few more games, but those are the main ones.
 
Solution
It will work.
Some thoughts:

If the 11400 is available for a bit more, I would buy that to get you started with integrated graphics until you can find a fairly priced graphics card.

I assume the ram is a single 2 x 8gb kit.

11400 is not an overly hot processor.
You could try the stock cooler.

I certainly would not touch a 120 aio. Performance is not great, they do not last forever, they are noisy and so on. A simple tower type air cooler will cool just as well.
The AF 34 is ok. I like the quality and quietness of noctua.
The NH-U12s redux is not expensive.

I would hope you are planning on a ssd of some sort for at least your C drive.
It will work.

Looks fine other than the motherboard. The one you have in your link has poor VRM's meaning your system will throttle down after it heats up. What country are you located?

I already have a 128gb, 256gb ssd and 1tb hdd on my old pc. Im also planning to buy a 1 tb m.2. Is the 500€ for 1080 X 8GB too much?

The 12400F is a beast of a gaming cpu. Pair it up with a B660 DDR4 board. Those boards should be available sometime next week.


There is already some of them available, unfortunately they are micro atx but i guess doesnt really matter. https://arvutitark.ee/est/tootekataloog/Arvutikomponendid-Emaplaadid-LGA-1700-emaplaadid/605113

That board is expensive. Wait one or two weeks for all the B660 DDR4 boards to be released.
 
The Gigabyte board has better VRM's.
I stand corrected. That's actually a decent board.
