How can I improve my gaming PC build? Need Suggestions



I'm Nancy, a final-year student. I have an interest in gaming, and I'm thinking of building a gaming PC - but I'm not some computer geek, and finding the right part seems too hard. Can you guys please check the compatibility I shared below and advice me if there are any changes which are needed to be made? 


I really appreciate it, and thank you!

You should contact gigabyte for questions regarding compatibility of your selected components with their motherboard.  This is not something that is done here.
