That dual tower cpu cooler won't clear that RGB RAM due to the tall heatsinks on said RAM. Also I would consider 1080P.

4060 is baaaaad, in gaming at 1440P you need a better 4070

To stay on budget I've downgraded the CPU to a 12600K, 15% slower in games at 1080p (less at 1440P if you're GPU limited) and 4 less ecores but 30% cheaper

 

Also swapped the RAM for lower profile kit to have clearance for the cooler

That's still way over my budget, idk why but pcpartpicker isn't including sales tax for some reason, for me its 13%, maximum budget before tax is aorund $1750

That's an excellent cooler you chose. Just go with non RGB RAM and call it a day.
