First Gaming Build

So I'm building my first computer and I'm kinda new at this. I'll be using this rig mostly for gaming, internet browser (streaming, etc) and watching movies. I may do some content creation but the likelihood of that happening soon is pretty low, although I might try it for a bit. (Nothing fancy just SFM)

I'm not going to buy all the parts at once instead wait after each paycheck and order a part, saving the sensitive ones (GPU and CPU) close to the end.  

 

 

1. Budget & Location

 $US 2,500

2. Aim

I'll be using this rig mostly for gaming (AAA and minor), internet browser (streaming, etc) and watching movies. I may do some content creation but the likelihood of that happening soon is pretty low, although I might try it for a bit. (Nothing fancy just SFM to see if it's for me)

3. Monitors

One: 3440 x 1440

 

I'm open to suggestions (with details on why part so and so is good) and learning. 

Oh, I would like it to be easy to upgrade as well down the road. 

 

Here is what I have so far.

I don't feel comfortable overclocking right at this moment. Maybe down the road but not right now.

Which keyboard would you suggest?

Never a good idea to buy parts over time as you have no way of testing them. Also you can't use it until you have everything so a bit pointless imo. I would just save the money up until you have enough to buy everything at once.

Winter is Coming.

That is why I'm going to get the things I can test, you know like the case, software, peripherals and mostly the purchases are going to come around the same time as I get paid three times a month. When the paycheck comes in then I'll place an order.
