First new build in 10 years. Using Cyberpower PC. A lot of friends have, rightfully so, suggested that the i9 is overkill. But, I splurged on my last CPU at the time and it has held up. I am very comfortable updating my systems myself, but not with adding new CPUs. I would rather put the extra money into a CPU now that will last a long time and upgrade the GPUs over time.


This is mostly a gaming computer. I work from home a lot too, but we use virtual desktops so my hardware is not affected. I plan to have a 2 monitor set up (only one for gaming though) and run it at 1440p (or 2k or whatever the kids are calling it). 


any feedback is appreciated.

Looks pretty good to me. The fastest native memory speed for your cpu is 2666 however the motherboard you selected is capable of running memory at speeds up to 4133. Up to you if you want faster memory. That is about the only suggestion I have in regard to your parts.
