Can you improve this? Budget is $1500. I need the wireless card, keyboard, mouse, monitor, and OS. Do not change the case. Thanks.

Intel cpu would be able to drive the gpu better? I've no idea tbh, not a pc gamer, anyway...

Changed mobo/cpu/psu, dropped the water loop as my prefered model (swiftech h220/240-x) would've just busted your budget, but that let me pick the standard budget air cooler & a nice quick-but-still-cheap ssd :D
