Maybe this..? (you can pick out whatever keyboard mouse and monitor with the remaining budget money, since those can be hugely decided on preference.

This is the best I can do. 144Hz monitors are too expensive so you would have to get that later.

Always fun to look at the differences in build suggestions. You spent the extra on peripherals and CPU whereas I spent the extra on the SSD and GPU. I'm actually surprised that you didn't go with the 550W EVGA G3 for $100 like I did.

I strongly agree with that! It's quite fun, as well as a learning experience seeing others' ideas.

For that, I just looked up some 'Best Picks' lists and worked around those, instead of picking the cheapest thing available - that's almost never a good idea.

The reason I didn't go with the EVGA psu is because of the blasted 20USD mail-in rebate offer it was tagged with. Those are temporary, and a pain in the butt to deal with.
I try to avoid MIRs on Pcpartpicker's lists if I can help it. If the OP isn't ready to purchase right away, and those deals disappear...

I agree with the MIR BS. They are a pain and when I did my list it was on my phone and setup differently.
 
Mail-in rebates removed from total. :)
