I'm not a genius when it comes to computers but I've wanted to get into it and PC gaming for a while. I figured I'd start by building a desktop PC. I researched a bit, found components that were compatible with each other, and put them through a system builder to see if they were truly compatible. I was wondering what was anyone's thoughts on the build? If you think I shouldn't dive head first into PC building, where should I start?

Here's the link to the build: https://au.pcpartpicker.com/list/6tvBV6

Your built part wise is good however it's very expensive for what your getting. You could get a much better build for much less.

Thank you! My research was quite quick and I didn't really check into what was really worth the money. Also, do you have any tips on how to build the PC? Should I follow Intel's guide?

EDIT: I have added a few components. What are your thoughts?

Looks good, for that AIO I'd put in on the top as exhaust, this way it won't dump hot air into the case raising the GPU temp.
Thanks, mate! I'll hopefully save enough money for the components before the end of this year. I really appreciate your feedback and support!
