Got the video card way before everything else. Used a system that the same friend from below had lying around while I ordered the rest of the parts.
Had an experienced builder friend of mine recommend parts and put everything together. Let me know what I should think about upgrading/swapping to achieve minimal bottleneck for cpu/gpu when running higher graphically demanding games. GPU was cheap since it was used on Ebay, but has been working great over the last 2 months. Upgrading from a Lenovo Flex 3 laptop from 2015, so this is already leaps and bounds better than anything I've used previously.
