Managed to get a 3090 FTW3 Ultra at MSRP recently. I already have the PSU from this list and the GPU so I just need to finish it all off. Hows this for a complete build? Anything to consider or to move around? I'm thinking the Noctua may be overkill so I may just use the bundled cooler with the 5600X. I'll be using this to run a Simracing rig and 1440p gaming, the rig runs a 5120x1400p and will soon run 3x 1440p monitors.

Appreciate any insight and advice! Been out of the custom built PC game for a long time and want to make sure I do it right this time around.

If you are going to throw that kind of money at the build, don't cheap out. 5900x, a nice case, and more SSD storage for games.

I was not seeing $4681 there. Then I remembered the video card. LOL. Retail.

What's wrong with the case? Yes on the need for more SSD storage.

I agree, 5900X makes sense for this build, as does more storage. You may want to grab the 2TB 980 Pro, as they are a bit faster in addition to doubling capacity. You could also add some SATA SSDs and a HDD for more storage.
