My First Build - opinions wanted

Sews

I'd like to use this PC for 1080p gaming, to max out games like The Witcher 3, Far Cry 4, Watch Dogs 2, Ark etc. I'd appreciate any opinions related to this build.

My budget is $1500.

Very nice PC. But if i was you, i would go for a cheaper case. Something from Corsair / NZXT / Phantecs.

-Have a nice day ! :*

Thanks. I didn't realise the price of the case went so high up, it used to me much cheaper. I updated it, now it has both 16gb of ram and an 850 Evo SSD. What do you think?

You would benefit from another 8GB of RAM for large open world games like the witcher My recommendation, also matched your color scheme https://pcpartpicker.com/product/4vWrxr/gskill-memory-f42400c15d16gvr

Thanks, I think you're right about the RAM, but do you think it's worth not getting an SSD for 16gb instead of 8? Because I can't really exceed the price. I'd get the 16gb if you think it's worth it.
