Try https://pcpartpicker.com/ to check if the parts are compatible with your motherboard or not.

The specs you chose are really good though.

Not really a fan of the Tuf gaming motherboards. Seen too many issues with 'em. The ROG series are rock solid though.

 

I would also be tempted to replace the 2TB drive, with a solid state drive of some description. The large mechanical drives are notoriously slow, unless you get the 10K RPM fellers.

In my opinion, that is rather nice for that money

Thanks for posting.   Your post reminded me of a link I lost because of some faulty software.  GeForce Garage by Nvidia.

 

I just finished looking at the GeForce Garage link.  They do not have a review for the NVIDIA RTX 3070.  Only the 20 series.  Recommend you search NVIDIA RTX 3070 for recent information if building your own.  If buying a Store bought Computer just farm around the Dell and check to see if they have any computers left to sell with the NVIDIA RTX 3070.

 

At least compare more computers before you choose.

 

If you don't have a local computer service store, it would be amazing if they even still exist, you'll have to rely on your own skills to maintain a computer anymore.
