Help with first build?

Budget (including currency): About 1300 Dollars

Country: United States

Games, programs or workloads that it will be used for: I've had a laptop for a while that I've casually played games, mostly strategy games i.e. paradox games and Civ, but if I go through with a desktop build, it would serve as my primary gaming rig instead of a console, so I'd like it to be able to handle things like Battlefield and GTA 5. 

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):

I'd say its fine but maybe you'd want to upgrade your power supply because of Upgradability and because I feel that when your playing games it might ramp up to something very high

 

Must be me but at the end its up to you

Thank you, does anyone know when the 3060ti GPU will become available? I can't find any at the moment and the pricing seems wildly inconsistent.
