Well, first of all, what will be your use ? (game/work, etc)
Second, what's your budget ?
Third, can you give us the link for your spec config ?

So, if i may suggest you that, you should stop the purchase because there is some part to change ^^"

i replicate your spec onto the configurator that lead me to a budget of 2800+£

I propose you those changes :

* for gaming 16Go ram are enough, if you need to do some work, you may go to 32, BUT, it's better to choose 2x8 or 2x16
* the cpu : if i'm not wrong the i7-11700k is better (and less expensive) than the 11700KF
* don't take bullguarg, it's know to cause BSOD and windows defender do the job well nowadays
* about the wifi card, i'm not really knowledgeable about it, but the intel one really do the job well (with optic fiber, i had a debit of 40mo/s in steam yesterday, AND i have a bearing wall between me and my routeur)
* about the ssd : you may want to take a smaller but better one for OS and software and a bigger but slower one for the everything else
=> knowing that the recoil have a pcie 4 port, you may want to go with the samsung 980 pro and an other one (if you can go to the 2 TO 970 samsung, it will be a bliss ^^)
* finaly, you may want to go to the silver warranty or, the gold one

* i just saw that the 3080 is only available with the 300hz screen, so, the price will be a little bit more expensive, sorry about that


So, the most expensive spec you can go with my advice go to 3173£, but with a smaller ssd (like the pcs one) and the silver warranty it will be less expensive (more or less, your previous budget)

I post you here the most expensive one, after that, you can modify it to your liking ^^
