    The ram kit is a total of 16 gb (2 x 8 gb sticks). You need two of these to get 32 gb.

    If you dont know how to build a pc, get help from someone who knows or get help from a shop (if you have any). Alternatively you could buy a prebuilt system.

    If you dont have any special preferences when it comes to motherboard, just get a cheap one that can support the cpu you want. As you arent planing to do any overclocking, you dont need to buy a expensive board that has very good "vrms / powerfull power delivery capability, suitable for overclocking".

    I wanted a cheap but ok board, thats why i got the asus tuf board.

    When it comes to gpu, any decent and newer that has 8gb vram would be great. If in doubt, find reviews.

    The motherboards arent all alike and some have more or less ram slots..

    The example of parts i mentioned, was bought for the hardware i got.

    If you feel like linking the shop you plan to buy from.. that would be helpfull. Or else we could be here forever suggesting parts which they dont have in stock.

    Had the money spare so went all out.
    Will have to wait 2 weeks before I get my new screens.

    Eventually will boost the ram if I need it, might up boxing from 5 to 7 and go from there

    The Graphics card comes with 2 bonuses, Godfall and believe it or not WoW Shadowlands lol. So that's good as I already have one expansion purchased when I did pre-order.

    And the CPU Also comes with a bonus Assassins Creed Valhalla

    All in all pretty happy not the original case I really wanted as the one I wanted it the cooler would not fit

    Oh and I am waiting to see if they can change the PSU to this one
    Thermaltake Toughpower iRGB Plus 850W Power Supply, 80 PLUS Gold

    Decided, stuff it may as well have pretty lights

    Thanks, its intended to last forever as I have No plans to ever upgrade again.

    Now I dont know what screen to buy, I dont have curved not sure if I would like it or how well it would work boxing on the one screen.
    Cannot decide 32 or 27 inches, IPS or VA /flat or curved I think 144hz though is ideal spot
