So my brother helped me design a gaming PC and this is my first one. I was wondering if anybody who has more experience in PC building or has overall knowledge of good parts has some thoughts on my build. I'd love some feedback. Thanks.

Hmm, the CPU and motherboard are 3 year old tech. Heres a new build.

I'd honestly just ditch the RTX due to their lately discovered reliability issues and get the old 1080 ti instead.
