What do you think about my build?

So to sum it up, this is my first ever PC build and obviously I don't have any experience, but I do have basic knowledge about building a PC. In my country, everything is so expensive so please don't tell me don't use this HDD, use that one. It is basically my own choice. I still haven't decided about the monitor but I am planning to get one with speakers. As for the keyboard and mouse, I 'll buy them on eBay so they aren't on the list. I also want to have the memory card reader on there which also has a few USB 3.0 ports which I assume uses the 19 pin header which the case probably uses one too, so I need two headers. So I took this PCIe superspeed thingy so I can get a few more ports and another USB 3.0 ports. The thermal paste is also not here, I'll buy that too. Is my build going to work, can I go and order these parts online or did I *** something up? If I did, tell me. Don't ask me about 10+ USB ports, I have them because I need the SD card reader on there. Thanks

I had to hunt for your list on your profile. I am going to assume that is the GR8 PC build. The GTX 980 is outdated. Buy a 1060 or 1070.

You should definitely link the part list you're talking about here.

Ok. Well, you definitely didn't mess anything up. As far as suggestions, without knowing what is available to you, I can only go by the state of things in NA.

First suggestion, see if you can find DDR4-3000 at a decent price. It doesn't cost much extra at this point, unless you've found an awesome deal on the 2666 in your list.

Second, why so much power supply? You'd be fine with half that much capacity.

Overclocking, and no there is no RAM that is as cheap as this where I live. I think I will overclock the RAM, too. Thanks for helping me. I live in Croatia, everything seems fine here but the state of economy is just so fkt up. Which meaans that prices are too. A 1000 $ build costs 1500$ here.
