You can probably get these cheaper...

What games do you want to play?
Why the sound card? - could you not wait and test the motherboard sound card?

- Also on that note if the motherboard is this one, it has an integrated Bluetooth module...

yeah i can wait and test the motherboard sound card, im a musician too so i thought maybe i need a sound card, actually i play all types of game since i am a streamer, i already do have another computer which i used to stream and play game at the same time, but i want another gaming pc so i can use my old computer just for streaming
This should be better for the same budget...

I'm not really good a this yet but I see a few mistakes with this build here: The Noctua Fans are overpriced because of their brand, you could get some be quiet! fans, which will probably be priced the same but as the name suggests they are really quiet. Who the heck even buys Windows nowadays. That's right there 165$ wasted. The memory costs a bit too much even if it has 3200MHz and CL15 timings which I don't know haven't checked. You can probably get 32 GB for about 200$ with the same specs from Ballistix for example. The motherboard. Christ that motherboard costs a lot, same price as RX 5700 I think. AORUS always have overpriced for their name. You can find a motherboard with the same chipset and that has both a sound card and Bluetooth module. For example Asus ROG STRIX Z390-E costs 200$ cheaper . The SSD has a normal price, have seen worse. The CPU fan is too much too since Noctua yeah. The RTX 2080 idk why but last I checked that's the price for the Ti version so either the prices have gone up or you meant to write 2080Ti. Last thing: are you sure with the case, because the pricing again is a bit astronomical. You could get a Razer or Corsair or even Fractal Design. Now that I'm checking the prices I see that all of them cost a lot, Corsair also likes to raise the prices because of their name and I can't say that the case doesn't look nice, I'm just saying you should look for ways to save some money and buy yourself a nice 30" 4K monitor with the saving

P.S.: Would like to know why do you need a 4TB HDD and check some other Power Supplies because 200$ for 850W is a lot
