Hello! Looking to help my friend with a computer build! They are looking for a computer with mainly gaming capability and some creative drawing capability. They do not plan on streaming.

Approximate Purchase Date: End of 2022

Budget Range: $2,500 USD after shipping

System Usage from Most to Least Important: Gaming, Drawing on Clip Studio Paint, Watching movies/videos

Are you buying a monitor: No

Parts to Upgrade: Everything except the motherboard. They recently got a motherboard from a friend. It is the GIGABYTE Z590 AORUS MASTER LGA 1200 Intel Z590 ATX Motherboard.

Do you need to buy OS: Yes

Preferred Website(s) for Parts: Newegg and Amazon

Location: Indianapolis, IN, USA

Parts Preferences: Asus, Gigabyte, Corsair, and Intel

Overclocking: No

SLI or Crossfire: No

Your Monitor Resolution: 1920x1080

Additional Comments: Programs - Overwatch 2, lots of different Steam games, Clip Studio Paint for artwork. Needs an SSD for fast boot/program launch and another drive for data/games storage.

And Most Importantly, Why Are You Upgrading: The computer is 7 years old and having issues running games

Parts Already Have:
GIGABYTE Z590 AORUS MASTER LGA 1200 Intel Z590 ATX Motherboard

Is there a reason why I'd want to eBay the mobo? Is it a bad mobo choice?
