Hey guys I am doing my first build ever. I have seen others build computers many times, and sell computers daily so i know a fair bit about them. I have gone to pcpartpicker and created a list which ill also write below. Please give me your thoughts/tips. Please note that I already bought the processor a little while back for a lot cheaper than retail and so it might be a bit overpowered/expensive but the build is based on that processor and I definitely did not spend anywhere close to its actual price. My budget is about $1500 CAD (+ tax lol). This rig will be used mostly for gaming, programming, and CAD tools. I want to be able to game in QHD at least. Oh and in case you didn't catch it, I'm in Canada

How can I reduce the price of this build? Not including processor I want it to be about $1500 CAD. Currently its about $2000 CAD. Any parts that preform similar but cost less?
Is my motherboard good? This is the cheapest well-rounded LGA2011-3 mobo that I could find.
Anyone know if the Samsung 950 Pro SSD has been discontinued? Its out of stock in Canada wherever I can see it.
Which iteration of the GTX 1070 is the best under $600CAD? So far, Ive found that the Zotac AMp! Extreme has the highest boost clock and VRAM speed. Anyone have this in their build?
Is my PSU going to be perfect, overkill, or under-powered for this build? Is there a better cheaper one?
Anyone have any good recommendations for nice LED case fans? Preferably something on the quieter side but not necessary.
I do not have ethernet in my room and recently realized that MOBOs dont come with a wifi card built in. Should I invest in Powerline (House is about 8 yrs old) or a network card for wifi (I have good speeds)?
Please recommend the best mechanical keyboard and a mouse that's cheap and great! (Total less than $150)
