Hello PC building helper folks! You all have helped me several times, and I am once again asking for part picking help! Thanks in advance, i love you all!!!

This PC will replace an approximately 10 year old gaming PC.

1. What YOUR PC will be used for: Gaming, FPS mostly

2. What YOUR budget is. around 1400 preferably , but a little wiggle room is allowed

3. What country YOU will be buying YOUR parts from. US

4. not applicable

5. IF YOU have a brand preference. intel and nvidia fangirl here

6. If YOU intend on using any of YOUR current parts, and if so, what those parts are: nope, all too old.

7. IF YOU plan on overclocking or run the system at default speeds: default

8. What resolution, not monitor size, will you be using? probably going to get a new monitor for 1920*1080 display

9. WHEN do you plan to build it? ASAP

10. Do you need to purchase any software to go with the system, such as Windows or Blu Ray playback software? Will put Win 11 on it.

Please let me know if you have any question or if I missed anything. This is a grad gift for my son, and I am going to help him learn how to build it.
