[SOLVED] Critique my Upgrade

I'm upgrading my gaming rig that is a bit outdated and starting to feel its age. This image shows my current system on the left, and the upgrades I'm doing on the right. Links are numbered. Particularly I want to make sure I'm not overlooking a compatibility issue or something basic like that. Please let me know if you think there is something I should substitute or add on, or if I'm overdoing it in any area. Budget is $1500 but I'd like to keep it around $1200 if possible. I'm pretty illiterate when it comes to upgrades and never learned much of the technical lingo that comes with PC parts, so any help is appreciated here.

Couldn't insert a jpg for some reason so here's a link to the image: https://postimg.cc/8jtKDpsx

As it is you need to swap the PSU as well. So I also included better case(don't know what you have). If you have a better case then skip on purchasing new one.
This is decent quality build.
I included high quality PSU so that you will not be facing similar problem of upgrading it next time. This will last you good 10Yrs before needing to be replaced.
