So,I decided to take this parts:

I have dark rock pro 4 and I haven't decided about the gpu yet.
I game on 144hz 1440p monitor + 4k 120hz sony tv.
No editing, just pure gaming + home machine for browsing, YouTube etc.
Do you guys think this would be good build for upcoming 3-4 years and what would be GPU recommendations ?
P.S Does this motherboard will work with 13th gen out of the box or I will need 12th gen to update bios?

The z790 supports 13th gen out of the box, and Asus offers the Tuf Z790-Plus D4.
If you're not overclocking you could save some money going with a cheaper board.

Any particular budget for the graphics card? Might be better to wait to see what AMD is releasing in November.
Budget for gpu is around 700-800$
What is D4 in motherboard's name? And maybe it's better to wait a little for price deductions on motherboards? kinda pricey (almost 300$)

I'm guessing it indicates it's the DDR4 version.
With current data, for ~$700-800 I guess you're going with 3080 12GB or ~4070/4070 TI/"4080 12GB" when they get released. We'll know more about the AMD 7xxx series cards when they announce them around November 3rd.

If you're planning on upgrading CPUs in 3-5 years, you could go with and AMD CPU/motherboard. AM5 should still be around then, so it would just be a CPU swap.

example of an AMD build. The 7700x is also an option at +$100

Changed some things around a bit.

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B08BL3SCWH - I use these on my 12700K/12700H and even before on my 8700K. They work well for setting and forgetting unlike paste which tends to dry out and quit working effectively.

Added a 6800XT @ $699
Hmm, typo there. At first I was thinking, I have seen 6800XT cards for less...then I clicked your pcpartpicker link, and saw it was actually a 6900XT! Nice.

Hmm, seems you're right. I had the 6800 on my mind / filtered along with 6900 but, I guess I was looking at the performance specs and didn't notice the model being different. $699 is a a good deal for a 6900.
