Hello,

Trying to get a good 1440 gaming/school PC build for my little brother. We live in the US, budget is around $1500 USD.

My main concerns/questions:
-will this be powerful enough?
-do I need the CPU cooler?
-I got the "Warning!Some AMD B450 chipset motherboards may need a BIOS update prior to using Matisse CPUs. Upgrading the BIOS may require a different CPU that is supported by older BIOS revisions." so I'm wondering if this is a compatible build.
-Also looking for general crtitiques and suggestions.

Here is what I got so far:

Everything looks very good

only thing:
Operating system should be able to be bought cheaper, and get the p400a or meshify C instead of that case.

this is just picking on your build, very good
