General Opinions Wanted

Hey everyone! This is my first PC build. I plan on using it mostly for games (ideally at high resolutions, thinking The Witcher 3), but also some light CAD work (Solidworks). I also went for a white/black theme for the computer and I'd like to stick to that if at all possible. I don't have much for the set up yet (besides the desk), so that's why there's a bunch of extra parts after the computer parts. Any advice anyone can give would be much appreciated since I have done some research and talked with friends who built PCs before, but I just wanted to get as many opinions as I could before I buy anything.

TL;DR Gaming PC (Witcher 3 on high) Ideally any changes reduce price Black/White Theme

Thanks!

Upgraded the cpu cooler, RAM, and GPU for less money. The cpu cooler matches your build better and performs better than the 212. Increased your RAM speed for overclocking. And the gpu matches the theme, the motherboard, and performs better for less money.

Everything else looks pretty good. The power supply is overkill but it's nice to have if you ever want to sli. The monitors are nice. Mouse and keyboard are good. I have used the thermaltake cases before and they are great budget cases, but there are better out there if you wanted to take the difference between these builds and put it into your case. That's the only other thing I could see changing.
