Opinions for first time builder?

Hello. This will be my first gaming PC that I will be building on my own. I would highly appreciate some feedback on the compatibility of these parts. I'm trying to maintain a white/blue build that's within my $1500 price range. I'm looking to max out 1080p gaming with 60fps and maybe some 1440p as well. Thank you.
