Also, I want to get a pair of headphones, but I'm not entirely certain what pair to get. Any suggestion for it would be great. Also, if you have any suggestions for any changes, feel free to make a suggestion.

Oh Kinda forgot I made this thread. I was going to use it for gaming, but between when I posted this and now, I had a budget drop to ~$2000. This is what I'm looking at now.

you could probably swap out the power supply and get a lower wattage power supply, like 500-600 watts. Unless you are going to be adding more graphics cards and more thing in the future.

Yea, that's probably a good Idea.
