This is my first pc build that i will primarily use for gaming. My budget is about $600 but i dont mind spending slightly more but I would prefer it to keep it 600$ or less.
I have read up on all of the items on this build and they all seem to be pretty positive but I just wanted to post this so I can get your guys's opinion.
If anyone can point out any incompatibilities that pcpartpicker did not detect that would be greatly appreciated. Is my psu wattage sufficient for this build and will there be anything that could potentially bottleneck my GPU?

Oh and one more thing, what exactly is the difference between modems and routers? What is the device that actually connects you to the internet if you were using a desktop, would it be a network adapter or what? Im am outright confused in that field. We have another computer in my home that i guess has a modem and or a router. I got cable and my ISP is AT&T.
For me to get on the internet with the PC im using right now, i have to connect an ethernet cable from a laptop to my PC. So in my case when i do make this budget build what would i need to connect to the internet without having to use my laptop and ethernet cable as a crutch? Would it just be a network adapter that you put on your mobo or would i need another modem/router? Any clarification would be extremely appreciated.
