Im looking to upgrade my aging 4770k platform to the z790 series.It will be used for gaming and streaming, with little video editing.
This is the build and will pair it with my RTX2080 Link to build: bit.ly/3T2Xxnb https://pcpartpicker.com/list/rGNftn
Anything im missing or should consider ?

Thank you

I would look at a less expensive motherboard.

I normally buy Asus m/b and im used to their bios. Never had a MSI before, will research the one you linked. Thanks for your input
Here's another option to look at.

MSI MAG Z690 Torpedo DDR5 $371.00

Air cooling or a 240mm AIO will work fine for this cpu.

Intel Core i7 12700 $569.00

That cpu averages one less fps than the 12700K / 12700KF which isn't far behind the 13700K.
