I compiled a pcpartpicker list for a New Intel Budget Gaming Build that is not a one-time build (it is for future upgrades). The maximum budget is $1,400.

The primary use is for FPS shooters.

A low profile keyboard is a requirement. RGB for keyboard is not necessary but would be nice to have.

Is there any part in the list that should be replaced or can be improved in the list?

Would appreciate anybody's input and thanks in advance!

If this is for future upgrades, I would look at z490 and 10th gen cpus. At least with z490 you have the 10th gen and 11th gen/rocket lake cpus. Z390 is donezo.
