[SOLVED] Decided to build a PC, any advice/things I should change look into?

Apr 12, 2022

Recently decided to build a PC and put up a list of parts that I'm planning to purchase, figured to get some opinions on things I could change and if everything is compatible, honestly the part that I want to keep is the CPU and the GPU other part advice is welcome. Planning to spend around 1.1 - 1.2k, found most of the parts for a good price, might end up being cheaper, however, as I mentioned feel free to suggest anything!

So for the parts:

For the CPU I'm thinking either a - Intel i5 11400F or Intel i5 12400F
GPU - RX 6600 XT
RAM - feel free to suggest anything planning on getting 32 RAM, with possible upgrades in the future.
Storage - also any suggestions SSD/HHD are greatly appreciated.
Case - Haven't picked out yet, but got a couple of options, mostly from NZXT
Motherboard - found some options, but would love to hear some opinions to make everything compatible and work well, maximize the performance.

With that being said, would greatly appreciate suggestions and advice as I haven't been into PC stuff that much lately, but know my way around them, just need some advice on general stuff for compatibility and best options of parts from people that actually know and are up to date, with everything about PC's as my knowledge is outdated for sure.

Thank you for looking into this and will be waiting for your advice/recommendations!
Avoid HDD if at all possible.

What are the 2 or 3 primary purposes...what will you be doing on the PC most of the time?

What's the over-riding reason you need 32 GB RAM and may upgrade from that?

Do you have any particular interest in liquid cooling?

Thanks for the reply. To answer the question, mainly work related stuff a lot of video editing rendering etc, with some gaming on the side like RDR2 or some of the FPS games.

Mainly looking for a good SSD, but will need a lot of storage for video footage and other files that may add upso figured some HDD’s won’t hurt for that.

The ram is from personal experience, 16GB just isn’t enough some times for me if it would be for just gaming would choose 16, but in this case would prefer 32 for the start.

As for liquid cooling, not really no, haven’t really looked into it, will be fine without it.
