Hello all,

First time builder converting from xbox. I have never played on PC before however I have put in so much time researching and learning everything. I went from nothing and I feel as now I have a decent understanding of PC building. My budget is $1,500 Canadian but I kind of went overkill so im almost at $2,000. I havent bought anything yet but im waiting for the new intel GPU's to come out to hopefully lower prices and maybe swap my GPU around.

Games I hope to play are Arma 3 (heavily modded), Squads, Halo Infinite, Escape from Tarkov, Insurgency: Sandstorm - and I want to be able to play future titles in over 5 years and not have to worry.

Suggestions, confirmations, clarifications, and any other "ations" you guys come up with let me know :) any advice is welcomed

Build is as follows:

alternatively, you could also go for a Ryzen 7 3700X for the extra 8 threads, lower TDP and 20 bucks less, and a B550 or X570 board, everything else is fine though

(aside from maybe swapping out the RAM for a higher speed kit and the PSU for a 80+ gold rated one, but that's just me)
