So I've been putting this off for a while for many different reasons, but I am finally going to build my own gaming PC. My rig will be based around Marest's Gaming 870 and 790 builds. It is my first time ever so the questions are:
Will these components work together?
Do I need the after market heatsink or is the factory one ok? (I play about three hours a day.
Are there any items I should improve or cut down on?
My budget for the components should not exceed $800 since I still need OS and peripherals. Feel free to comment on the quality and brand choice of the component and make any necessary recommendations.
Here are the items
