I am building my first gaming pc after selling mine a few years back. I wanted a 3080 but will work with what I picked until stock is up. I plan to stream and make videos on it (obv will be better with the 3080) and also do school work on it. I only have a laptop from hp that can handle school work and posting on forums so I need something now, and with the holidays coming up by the time I buy my parts some should be on discount. Which I am excited for. PLEASE TRY AND ANSWER ALL OF MY QUESTIONS ON EACH PART. THAT WILL BE GREATLY APPRECIATED THANK YOU !!!!

The CPU is the 3700x and I chose it because it will last me for 5 years (correct me if I'm wrong) and will handle streaming, editing, and recording like a breeze. I know the 5600x and the 5800x are out but they are out of stock like the 3080 are. This should hand and not bottleneck a 3080 by a huge margin for the next few years.

The Mobo is the MSI MPG B550 and I chose it because of the future-proofing and the b550 chipset and the young age.

The ram is the Trident Z RGB 3600 CL 16 2x8, I chose it because of the high speed that ryzen likes and the features. Please tell me if the b dies are from Samsung people say they are and I just found out what b dyes are and don't know what to look for.

Storage, for now, is the Samsung 970 Evo 500 GB M.2-2280 NVE. What does the "2280" mean I chose this to start off and buy a terabyte SSD later on.

For the GPU I chose the MSI GTX 1650 Super GAMING X because I am getting it hopefully on Facebook for 140 used for 5 months. This will hold me over until 3080 sometime next year

The case is the Fractal design meshify c for the airflow, appearance, and ease of use. Heard great things about this case. And the optional water-cooling capability for the future.

Lastly, I am choosing the Corsair TXM 650W 80+ GOLD psu because of the trusted brand and model line. The 650 W should be more than enough to handle a 3080 in the future and anything I throw at it. Please share your thought on this.

And I'm buying 2 or 3 extra Corsair ML120 Pro fans to make it 3 in the front 1 in the top and 1 exhaust. 4 intake 1 exhaust. PLEASE TELL ME IF THIS IS SAFE.
