Currently rocking a 8 year old clocked I7 3770, 1080ti, 16g ram rig and ready for a upgrade. PC is used for media center & gaming. Play on 2k 27in and 4k 52"(star citizen, rust & star GTA mainly). Plan to overlock CPU & GPU if needed. Been looking around for a bit and this is what I came up with. I am okay with the price and wanting to spend some $$$ on esthetics since the rig sits in living room. This will be my 3rd build 1st being a quad core LONG time ago but this will be first without assistance of friend so will be appreciating yalls help!

CPU
i7-12700K -12th Gen Alder Lake 12-Core (8P+4E) 3.6 GHz LGA 1700 125W Intel UHD Graphics 770 - BX8071512700K
(always open to suggestions switched from i9 12900k)

Motherboard
MSI MAG Z690 TOMAHAWK WIFI LGA 1700 Intel Z690 SATA 6Gb/s DDR5 ATX Intel Motherboard
(looking for sleek and black LOVE nzxt z690's but doesent seem to take DDR5)

Memory
G.SKILL Trident Z5 RGB (2 x 16GB) 288-Pin DDR5 6000 Intel XMP 3.0 F5-6000J3636F16GX2-TZ5RK
(was thinking of 64g but maybe over kill and can add more later if needed)

GSU
1080ti from current rig until 3090ti comes down to $1000 or so

Storage
2 x (SAMSUNG 980 w/Heatsink 2TB PCIe Gen 4 NVMe M.2)
2 Samsung 2tb SSD's from current rig

PSU
CORSAIR RM1000x CP-9020201-NA 1000 W ATX12V / EPS12V
(was debating on 1200watt but thinking its overkill)

Case
LIAN LI PC-O11 Dynamic Black Tempered

Cooling
2 x (NZXT AER RGB 2 120mm Triple Starter Black - RGB w/controller)
NZXT Kraken X73 RGB 360mm - RL-KRX73-R1 - AIO
(expensive but love the black fan look and wanting lighting control)

Looking at $2000-2200 for this setup currently. Not in huge rush as I may wait to see if prices drop around holidays and want to make sure I am happy with this setup.

Thank you in advance for any suggestions and tips!

Unless you can't wait even a short time......I'd do nothing until I could evaluate the upcoming 13600k and 13700k.

Might get a 5 or 10 percent boost in whatever you do, for whatever that might be worth to you.

Release date said to be Thursday.
