How does this look for my first build?

Budget (including currency): $1700 (+/- $30 maybe)

Country: US of A

Games, programs or workloads that it will be used for: General Productivity, some AAA titles in the future I hope

Other details (existing parts lists, whether any peripherals are needed, what you're upgrading from, when you're going to buy, what resolution and refresh rate you want to play at, etc): So I was originally planning on going for a very RGB intense build, but then I saw how much performance I would get back if I didn't worry about RGB and a fancy mechanical keyboard now, and maybe go back and get those things later. Here is what I ended up with, any feedback would be greatly appreciated! I am 100% sure that I will (not) be able to get the 3060 ti at that price, but that's the goal anyways.

pretty solid list imo. only things i might suggest are trying to find a mobo with wifi in the price range, there are some decent mobo sales atm. maybe a different psu, but it should be fine.

This monitor doesn't really have many reviews that I could find, and some people are saying that it has some ghosting problems, is that really noticeable for the average user though? This is crazy bang for the buck, even though it has a 5ms response time.
