Hello, I have been a pc enthusiasts for quite some time but never had the money to buy one. I have been saving up my money while racking my brains on what parts to buy. Anyways I was wondering if you could take a look and give some insight to my parts. Any help is appreciated. Thanks! https://pcpartpicker.com/list/kRktyX

Quite good build go with it. But if you want to save same some money and your not a fan of intel processor then you can consider getting a Ryzen 5 build.

Thanks for the insight but I think I'll stick with Intel. :)

If you’re going to stick with Intel, you could spend a lot less

I just wrote a bunch as a response but then it deleted it from going to a different tab. But the main points were, I wanted the 9600k because of overclocking and further upgrades, Needed Wifi mother board, wanted Rgb ram to match setup, and I just decided on the 500i case from nzxt. Thank you very much and even if some circumstance happens in which I can't get some of these parts I will have a plan to fall back on.

Oh. So you don't mean to have the 8400 in the build and have the 9600k instead?

Oh is that what it shows? Oops I must’ve changed it right after and forgot. Yes I meant 9600k
