I want to build a computer for programming and gaming (League of Legends, Forza Racing). This is the parts list that I have gotten together after some research. Any opinions? I have never done this so I dont really know. Budget should be under 800. Any feedback on what could be wrong with the build is greatly appreciated. I already have a screen and keyboard + mouse and want to use ubuntu as OS

ok nice thanks! MSI Tomahawk B450 would be easier for me to get. Would that be good way to go? (if i got a wireless network adaptor aswell)

the boards are more or less equivilant, so whichever that is cheaper would really be best.

The Tomahawk is pretty much the best of the B450 boards, so that’ll be your best option
