Your build works but I can see where cost can be cut.

If you don't need wifi then look at this board.

https://www.newegg.com/p/N82E16813144531
MSI PRO B660M-A DDR4 $139.99

https://www.msi.com/Motherboard/PRO-B660M-A-DDR4

If you need wifi this board is due to arrive at Newegg within the next few days.

https://www.newegg.com/p/N82E16813144524
MSI PRO B660M-A WIFI DDR4 $149.99

https://www.msi.com/Motherboard/PRO-B660M-A-WIFI

Pair up one of those boards with this cpu.

https://www.newegg.com/intel-core-i7-12700f-core-i7-12th-gen/p/N82E16819118359
Intel Core i7-12700F $315.49

Look for RAM with low profile heat spreaders so it doesn't impede your cpu cooler.

LHR doesn't affect gaming according to every review I've read on it. M.2 SSD's are faster than SATA SSD's and are wireless. If and when you need more storage you can always add a SATA SSD later on.
