For better cooling, we've included an ARCTIC Liquid Freezer II 420 RGB to this rig.
We've selected the best-priced motherboard. In this case, ASUS PRIME Z690-P WIFI DDR5 DIMM PCIe 5.0 will boost your gaming performance.

We recommend you the NZXT C850 Gold Power Supply for your PC gaming system which can provide plenty of power for this build. This PSU delivers 850 watts of clean, stable power which is ideal for gaming PCs with multiple GPUs, or higher power requirements. It is also useful for SLI or Crossfire builds.
