Well, you could start with a budget. Do you already have a good GPU? That one is not good, and overclocking it won't help. What is the resolution of the monitor?

The "Performance Series" Storage Set 1 is anything but. It is SATA while the other M.2 SSDs are up to 10 times faster. NVMe works off the PCIe interface.

The "OS Boost" is a waste.

Thanks for replying! I don’t have a GpU. The resolution is 1920 x 1080. I honestly have no knowledge about PC. I’m trying to keep budget $1500-$2000.

I would prefer to see you wait until the Lynx "prebuilts" are back in stock as that will save you some $$.

However, I know how hard that can be to wait, so here's something at $2033 that will work for you for a few years.

        3746681     

To see it in the configurator, select "Load Config" at the upper right of the main page and copy/paste that number.

All the CPU you need. A better PSU for future upgrades, and game-changing Primary SSD for your operating system.

At 1080p, and high frame rates, the GPU will keep you happy for quite awhile.
