Feedback on $1500 USD Gaming Build

Hello, after a few weeks of research I have created a computer part list I am happy with, but I would like the experts here to look it over for any errors or suggestions for improvement. I plan to purchase these parts within the next two weeks.

 

Budget - $1500 USD

Location - USA, I plan to purchase parts from a combination of Newegg and Amazon

Goal - Play a wide range of games (From indie to AAA titles) at Ultra settings on a single 1440p 60Hz monitor. I typically play strategy, building, RPG, 4x games rather than competative FPS type games. For this reason, I don't feel that I need a 144Hz monitor.

Theme - Trying to go for a Black/Red theme with the build.

Reused Parts - I already own the 1TB SSD listed on the build as $0. Additionally I will be reusing a mouse and will get Windows 10 from school.

Other Notes - I know that the Ryzen 5 and Ryzen 7 processors are very popular recently, but I would like to stick with the Intel i5-9600k if possible. I plan to do some overclocking with the processor. Additionally I believe that this setup will initially be overkill to only run 1440p at 60Hz. I would like this computer to be able to hold up for a long time (4-6 years ideally). My current computer build has held up for 6 years (i5-3570k + GTX 660).

 

Can you please check the build below and:

1) Check for any errors with compatibility

2) Check for any problematic bottlenecks

3) Let me know if the cpu cooler and mobo are suitable for moderate CPU overclocking (I have no experience with overclocking, but would like to try it with this build)

4) See if the 1440p 60Hz monitor I selected looks good, and if not, suggest a better alternative

Thank you, and feel free to ask for any more info that can help!

Sorry about that. It should be fixed now.
