First Timer- 2500 for everything.

So I'm trying my hand at PC gaming, building my first PC. I need to get everything, so this isn't just the computer. I'm feeling more confident after getting some tips and doing research (obviously), but I'd still like to get some opinions on what I have so far. So, if I were to go through to my ceiling for this project, what changes would you guys make to this build? (thanks in advance!)
