About to pull the trigger on this...

I'm about to order this within the next few hours or so. I'd just like to have some confirmation before I spend my money, some feedback on changes I could make, and possible incompatibilities. I'd really appreciate it if someone could completely check this build to make sure it is 100% compatible, or at the very least tell me how I can check the compatibility myself. This build is meant to play games at 1440p/60fps. You might notice that I chose a 1080p monitor, but this is only temporary. In conclusion, I'd just like some final feedback before I order my parts.

AND A BIG THANK YOU TO EVERYONE WHO HAS HELPED ME WITH MY BUILD, AS I'VE BEEN SAVING UP MONEY AND EDITING MY BUILD FOR THE PAST YEAR OR SO. THANK YOU!

you could get a cheaper but also great ssd like the Crucial MX300 275GB https://pcpartpicker.com/product/rrvZxr/crucial-mx300-275gb-25-solid-state-drive-ct275mx300ssd1 or the SK hynix SL308 250GB https://pcpartpicker.com/product/MZJkcf/sk-hynix-sl308-250gb-25-solid-state-drive-hfs250g32tnd-n1a2a.

But overall your build list looks great.

I agree with the Crucial SSD. I just ordered my rig last night, and we share some similar components. I'd recommend getting a single 16gb stick of RAM. It's actually cheaper, and you have the ability to upgrade to full ram capacity (64gb) without having to give up the two 8gb sticks.

Here's the one I got - https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01D8U27JA/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s01?ie=UTF8&psc=1
