Is there any major issues with my Partners Xmas gift? 🫣

Hi, I built this Pc for my partner. he’s a gamer. Plays mostly cod and fortnite. he streams on 1 monitor and plays on another . He’s using ps5 to play and using a capture card and a pc to stream. he has a 4K 144hz Samsung monitor he uses for his ps5 and a 360hz republic of gamers monitor connected to his pc (I think). How ever his pc isn’t good enough to run his games has it just about runs his stream. My budget was exactly £3450. I wanted to surprise him for Xmas so I just went for it adding what I thought looked ok to my order. I didn’t realise about this helpful forum until after I paid. Anyways could anyone advise if this build is crazy bad or will it be fine to play cod and stream straight from the pc with no ps5? I’m super anxious I messed something up and he’ll have problems with it. Thank you in advance for any replies.

MOST VALUED CONTRIBUTOR
You're spending way, way over the top here. I would order a very, very different PC. Fortunately you have time to cancel it and order something way better and get it in time for Christmas.

Here's what I'd be inclined to order:

Case
CORSAIR iCUE 5000X RGB MID TOWER GAMING CASE Good case, £180 cheaper
Processor (CPU)

AMD Ryzen 9 7950X3D 16 Core CPU (4.2GHz-5.7GHz/144MB w/3D V-CACHE/AM5) Amazing gaming CPU, with extra (possibly unnecessary) cores for streaming capacity
Motherboard

ASUS® TUF GAMING X670E-PLUS WIFI (AM5, DDR5, PCIe 5.0, Wi-Fi 6E) Really good (perhaps still excessive) motherboard
Memory (RAM)

32GB Corsair VENGEANCE DDR5 6000MHz (2 x 16GB) Speedier DDR5 RAM
Graphics Card

24GB AMD RADEON™ RX 7900 XTX - HDMI, DP - DX® 12 Very strong graphics card. The 4080 might be a better option for streaming.
1st M.2 SSD Drive

512GB SOLIDIGM P44 PRO GEN 4 M.2 NVMe PCIe SSD (up to 7000MB/sR, 4700MB/sW) Boot drive
1st M.2 SSD Drive

2TB SOLIDIGM P41+ GEN 4 M.2 NVMe PCIe SSD (up to 4125MB/sR, 3325MB/sW) Games drive
Power Supply

CORSAIR 1000W RMx SERIES™ - MODULAR 80 PLUS GOLD, ULTRA QUIET Plenty of PSU capacity to allow upgrades later
Power Cable

1 x 1.5 Metre UK Power Cable (Kettle Lead, 1.0mm Core)
Processor Cooling
CORSAIR iCUE H115i ELITE CAPELLIX XT RGB High Performance CPU Cooler Ample cooling for the 7950X3D
Thermal Paste

STANDARD THERMAL PASTE FOR SUFFICIENT COOLING
Sound Card

This could happily game on the 4K 144Hz monitor, by the way. Putting it at 1080p 360Hz (unless he is a top, top level player) would be a bit of a waste!
