I'm currently looking to build a new gaming pc because i'm on an old ROG gaming laptop. Heres my build list: https://pcpartpicker.com/list/6YJncT
If there's anything I can personally change to make this better/ a little cheaper please let me know!
Also is a Wired Network Adapter needed to use ethernet or is that for something else?

Hot CPU, get a 360 AiO

Wired Network Adapter is included in the motherboard.

What is the purpose of the build, as you can save some with the CPU if mainly for gaming. You can look at the 5600 or 5800 and even pair with a B550 motherboard to save a little (will require a BIOS update most likely).

Your motherboard has a LAN port, so you don't need an additional adapter in that regards.
 
Agree about cooling. I would not pick a 240mm AIO for either a 5800x or 5900x. Go with 280mm or 360mm assuming the case supports them.

Also get a single RAM kit, don’t mix 2 kits as there are no guarantees they will work together without issues. If you need 32gb then a 2x16gb kit is the best option.

Your mobo comes with an ethernet socket should be all you will need.

I would do something like this which has overall better parts at a similar price. No need for a 5900x if you are not doing any production type tasks. I do not think you need a 10gb network card. The motherboard comes with a ethernet 2.5gb port.
