1500$ Enthusiast Gaming Build

Nothing too flashy. Going for a 1440p, 120Hz capable gaming build. Multiple monitor output maybe. Red and black theme in a mid tower. Opinions/thoughts/suggestions?

Your SSD isn't very good, Samsung has some great options, and PNY too

this black/red build has better motherboard connectivity, a case with a better view of components and any fans you'll mount on the front intake, a faster, larger SSD, a much better model GTX 1070, better replacement fans (even the case stock fans are better than the corsair AF120's) and windows on usb.
