Hello everyone. I just put together my first build based on my budget and I want input on literally everything. I dont know much so all input is valued. I was going for a medium to high end build while also maintaining my 1350$ Canadian budget. As an example i would like know if maybe i should go with better cooling or maybe a specific part i have is bad quality or maybe a certain part breaks easily... thats what im looking for. Also if i have to much ram or not enough VRAM or something like that (i literally have no idea what i just said i just saw an article) or maybe my motherboard wont support stuff etc. Anyways go nuts im open to all input. If i need to spend more money or i can save money in a certain spot let me know. Also im not sure about the accessories and what they do like wiring and fan controllers. ( i think thermal paste is included in one of them so im good on that)

Cheers Guys

This'll run games faster. Overall it is faster. 32GB RAM isn't necessary at the moment. Unless you have other tasks in mind which need more than 16GB. No reason for an OC CPU on a non-OC motherboard.
