Anyways with $1300 by christmas that only leaves me $400 short for this build

EDIT* Turns out changing from water to air cooling bumps this to around 1500 leaving me only 200 short so getting this pc is very possilble!


Since you're planning so far into the future though, definitely ask again maybe 1-2 weeks before you plan to purchase the parts. December is still a long way off, and I fully anticipate different prices as well as newly released parts.

Also, here's an example of something that is much cheaper, but will still perform amazingly.

i5 vs i7 performance increase is not worth $100 if all you do is regular daily computing and gaming.
16GBs of RAM is a lot already. Adding more ram doesn't necessarily make your computer faster.
SSD. For reasons stated in my last post.
The Gigabyte coolers on the nvidia 10xx series cards are quite noisy and actually don't perform that well. Pick up something from the likes of MSI or EVGA.
Monitors have better color. If you're looking at cheap 1080p monitors, make sure the panel is IPS/PLS/AHVA. Cheap 1080p panels can come with absolutely horrible colors sometimes.
Retired.
