All components look to be "high-end" "high-quality" so it looks a very good rig. However, it is hard to say 100% it will go well with every game/software/IDE compiler/app, as you do not provide which specific apps and games you will run and some of them may have specific requirments, but in general it looks great.


I will avoid installing more than 1 Antivirus software, and also add Visual Studio (Community or Code) for software development, a great IDE.
