Hi Yayohaslt.

Your build below. Doesn't make much sense to use a non K CPU with a Z490 board. You don't seem to have a GPU. Do you intend of buying one or you're gonna keep using the integrated graphics from the CPU?

Using a non K CPU with a Z490 board is useless. That board is made for overclockable CPU like a 10400K

hey .

Yeah I Honestly forgot to include a GPU . I'm so tired i thought i had included one, I'm currently doing some research on some parts but what i posted was based on what was available near me in Micro Center. I'm still trying to figure out a few things, i get impatient waiting for things to arrive by mail, but yeah thanks I appreciate it.
