I appreciate the help I a so far probably going to follow this build closely just changing the monitors to the Acer monitors that mark5916 mentioned above. I did notice that a lot of the builds I am seeing have the same compatability notes about the motherboard slots. Could you elaborate on that , I am just now starting my A+ cert so I'm still learning alot.

The motherboard M.2 slot #0 shares bandwidth with a SATA 6.0 Gb/s port. When the M.2 slot is populated, one SATA 6Gb/s port is disabled.

Simply means when using the M.2 SSD it will turn off one of the Sata Ports, so you have 5 Sata ports available instead of 6...

Looks like a solid parts list to me. Feel you would likely be good with 32G of Ram. But there is no harm in maxing it out..
