Building a home PC for the fam. Looking for any recommendations on part changes or needs, or just opinions in general. Any help would be much appreciated. My build is https://pcpartpicker.com/list/bbqGx6
What in general will the family be using it for?
what will the fam be using this pc for? kids playing what kind of games? etc. etc.
Is your family include 8 year olds playing webgames or 16 year olds playing AAA titles and going to blow through your 500gb on day 1 with steam games? Are you a part time video editor in your spare time?
You have 8gb ram but might want 16 as one example. can't really say until we know what the pc is used for.
Mostly just browsing the web, watching videos, and running basic programs like Microsoft word, powerpoint etc.
you have a video card, but also a CPU with integrated graphics. If you keep the current CPU, you could leave out the gpu and see how well it is for your need, and always add one later in the future. The other option would be to change the CPU to a better one without the GFX like a Ryzen 5 2600 or something.
The other thing you have is the CPU cooler. While the stock one that comes with the CPU might not be the best, it is probably more than sufficient for your limited use case.
For the 144MHz monitor i've seen users post about only getting 60MHz due to the monitor only supporting the higher frequency on certain plug types and then something not having the matching one on the GFX card so something to check into more. I checked the product page and didn't see any mention of it for that monitor but i don't know enough about that offhand. So just something to look into or others can give better answer about it.
based on requirements:

3400G will be a good CPU for a long while for the use with 4 cores and 8 threads, the iGPU is similar to 1030 in performance.
it has its own cooler
1/2TB of very fast SSD speeds
16GB RAM (let the iGPU use about 2-3GB of it)
case with good airflow (add the fan in the rear for best temperatures)
mobo is 3400G ready
60Hz monitor since this isn't for gaming.
And it's $12 less :)
I've never got one of these computers, but do they have a SD card reader?
