Experts please take a look over

This will be my first PC build, please take a look over and see if there is anything that will not work with each other or if there are better version of the same stuff for the same price.

The monitor I'm getting is Acer x34 with the freesync. I know there is a gsync one out there, but that monitor is an extra $300-$400 more and its puts me out of my budget.

The PC will be be mainly for my office work. Quickbooks, MS word, internet browsing stuff like that. I would like to game on it from time to time. I play mostly FPS (Call of duty). I mainly game on my PS4 right now (friends) and hoping I would slowly move over to PC games.

My goals are to be able to run this monitor Acer XR341CK to its full potential. I will (if I can) try to do a little overclocking on the CPU/GPU/Memory. My budget is around $1500 I know i still have to get window and probably other stuff. If you see something I really don't need and can sub it out with something I need please let me know.

Not the motherboard though.

It is, but it's still a good downgrade from a $160 motherboard (as expected though with that price).

Any reason on the Mobo change and the drop on the ram from a 3000-2400? More then likely with swap out the cooler/ssd/PSU
