Hello there.
Building my first PC and I believe i've done a pretty good job at researching what parts to pick based on what I need and what brands have better reputation than others.
This is the list I've come up with:
Case: Fractal Design Meshify 2
Case-coolers: be quiet! Silent Wings 3 120mm
Motherboard: ASUS PRIME Z590-P
CPU: Intel Core i7-11700K
CPU-Cooler: Arctic Liquid Freezer II 36****0
HDD: Seagate BarraCuda 2TB 7200RPM
SDD: WD Black SN850 1TB or Samsung 980 PRO 1TB
RAM: Kingston HyperX FURY DDR4-3200 C16 32GB
PSU: Corsair RM750x 750W
GPU: Gonna be a 2080 ti, 3080 or 3080 ti when released
I know i could settle for a z490 board and the 10700k and not miss out on much, but for me the difference would be 200$, if not less than that. My concerns as of right now, is if the motherboard is fine when the pc is going to be used mainly for gaming. Is the RAM fine, should i look for a different brand. Will the PSU be enough for the 3080/3080ti and 11700k. Another thing on my mind is noise, since i won't be the only one in my living room, where I'll have my setup. The PC will be used mainly for non-competitive games played at 1440p or 4k. For monitors i'll have a LG OLED C1 or CX and still debating for which monitor I'm buying besides the LG TV. Since the TV won't be used only by myself.
Generally looking for any kind of feedback, on the setup. And peripherals.

If you want Intel I'd get a 10850k over the 11700k. The 10850k is about the same price and has 2 more cores and 4 more threads.

For a 3080 or 3080ti your going to want to bump up the PSU to 850w.
To my understand the 11700k is a fair bit faster both in single core and multi core performance. I do prefer the speed over the 2 extra cores.
Yeah, I will go with a 850w psu, more and more people telling me to.

It's only a little faster on single core, and that is not enough to make up for having 2 less cores and 4 less thread in multi core performance. Also at the $400 price point is the 5800x which is also better than the 11700k.

(no 10850k in the review but it will perform almost identically to the 10900k).

Well yeah okay. The pcie 4.0 isn’t anything I’m godnat miss out on? Since both the ssd and most likely, also the GPU uses pcie 4.0.

On an SSD there will be no user noticeable difference, you'd only see the difference in benchmarks speeds.
The only pci-e 4.0 gpu I have seen that performs better on pci-e 4.0 is the 4Gb 5500xt, and thats due to its need to use system ram as vram when the onboard 4gb runs out. However if pci-e 4.0 support is a must then go for the Ryzen 5800x.

Yeah okay. Well thanks alot! Will have to look at some reviews on YouTube, though I’m more into looking at a z490 MB and a 10850k.
 
You could always turn off the power limits in the bios in a round a bout way of OC the locked Intel cpu's.

And if you don't want to listen to the pump it doesn't get more quiet than a Scythe air cooler. Either of these coolers will allow you to run that cpu with the PL turned off.
