I'm new to this site, and I was wondering if I could get some help with my computer. From what I've seen, it says my computer is compatible with all the parts I've chosen. But I wanted some help on here, to make sure they will work. Below are a list of parts that I will be getting:

Just to give some perspective, I will be using the computer to record videos, play games, and render out edited videos. If you think there are better parts to suit the build, or if there are any parts that need to be exchanged, please tell me below. Also, I want to stay at least under $1,400

I checked motherboard, CPU and memory for compatibility, and even though I didn't see the specific ram you selected at MSI's listing of supported ram for your motherboard, Kingston and PCPartpicker both say it is compatible. I think that means you will be ok - I would expect Kingston to be the most up-to-date about that sort of thing. CPU fits the socket on your motherboard ok.


Don't you want to include an SSD in your build?


Also, I don't know much about liquid cooling, but I think you want a higher wattage PSU if you are going to liquid cool (600 Watts or more). If you might ever use crossfire, you want to plan on even higher wattage for when you eventually add an extra video card.
