Hello, my name is Riley,
I've been trying to gather all the components needed to build a powerful gaming pc (my first time building a pc, it'll be my first gaming pc, so I wanted to go all out. The big "holyyyyyyy ****!" moment essentially.)

I've been on several forums asking for help and now I've come to Se7enSins. I really need the help, I've researched all I could. I have officially purchased all of the components listed below and now just waiting for the arrivals. That being said, Id much rather pay a restocking fee for a refund of parts I ****ed up on, then to open a package and not even be able to return it.

-My video card... The most expensive thing, and also what I am fearing the most. The one I bought (listed below) has a USB Type C VirtualLink port. I have no interest in VR, just want my gaming pc. Will that video card work with my build or will it being an issue?
-Any recommendations on an internal 5.25" drive dvd/cd rom player? I want to be able to play movies (if possible, blu ray too), music, and load games. I also want to be able to put songs onto cd's.
-Will my power supply be enough for 6 case fans and all the components inside? (including a dvd/cd rom player)

-This is like giving someone homework, but if anyone with experience in this field of knowledge is up for the task, please advise on compatibility of all the components working together. Is there some website I can check this on with part numbers or something?

Listed below are my components.

1. That's a non-issue, it will still run normal without VR.
2. Why do you want one? CD-ROM are outdated and take up unnecessary space in your case. Everything is digital, movies, music, video games. Or if you plan on burning DVDs most TVs have a USB port nowadays. And things like Spotify exist which imo is a lot better medium to listen to music than CDs
3. That power supply is sufficient.
