New Builder! Looking for bad choices or mistakes. :(

My last PC purchase was a Dell back in 2007. It has been a trooper for a lot of years with some replacements now and then, has served me well. But alas, it's time has passed.

I am trying to stay around $2k but mostly looking for your expert opinions on any bad choices I have made or any mistakes you see.

This will be mostly a game build, primarily WoW and some HoTS.

I am certainly open to any thoughts or suggestions. Thank you all SO MUCH for your time!

One things I will mention very quick. I think I am going to bump up the capacity of my M.2 SSD.

Also, I hear that if you have already D/L'd Win 10 on a PC, you don't need to buy it for a new one. Is this right?

Anyone have anything at all? I am really quite nervous about buying something that may bottleneck my system. In particular, the MoBo/CPU/GFX card combo.

Well, there's nothing wrong actually

If you are only going to play Wow and HoTs only, you don't actually need have really strong build.

Anyway good luck with your build
