This is my first time building a PC and any feedback would be extremely helpful. I would like it to stay below $1000.

It's okay but 750W PSU is overkill. Something along 550/600 would suit better, and a SSD would be perfect.

Thanks! I only have one question. How is the ssd manufacturer you used? I've never heard of them, alrhoguh of course I am pretty nooby in this whole thing.

Kingstons, Adatas are on the cheap SSDs. For quality ones there's the Samsung and Intels. Just a small example of how big the SSD market is.
