I am not a techie when it comes to hardware so seeking input.

I want to put together a Windows 11 system that will speed up my video and graphics editing. I would like to keep the cost below $1000.
Below is a list of components I am considering:

ASUS Prime Z690-A LGA 1700 Intel 12th ATX Motherboard

CORSAIR Vengeance DDR5 32GB
(2x16GB) DDR5 5200 (PC5-41600) C40 1.25V - Black

Intel® Core™ i5-11400F Desktop Processor 6 Cores up to 4.4 GHz
LGA1200 (Intel® 500 Series & Select 400 Series Chipset) 65W
ASUS GeForce GTX 1050 Ti 4GB Phoenix Fan Edition DVI-D HDMI DP 1.4 Gaming

Thank you for your help.

So all this $1000 upgrade is just to gain compatibility with windows 11 ?
What's wrong with windows 10 ?

Do you have any real issues with your system? (other than windows 11 compatibility)
I don't have issues. I do have one last question. Have there been any real issues upgrading Windows 10 to Windows 11? My concern was the discontinuation of Windows 10 support. Thought I'd get a head start using this build.

If what you have now works fine for you then no reason to upgrade.
W10 support goes into 2025 and just because they end the support it's not going to just stop working.

I do not have any problems but know Microsoft will be discontinuing support on Win 10 and thought I'd get a head start on it. So, one last question: has there been any real problems updating to Win 11 on top of my current Win 10 installation? That might help me in my decision.
