I am very new to building my own pc, however I made an attempt to build a ~ $2000 gaming/workstation pc. I am a medium-heavy gamer and I also 3D model quite a bit. Here is the link to my build:

Please give me advice on what to improve. I also have questions regarding whether my choice of RAM is "good" as well as if I should invest in more case fans (and if so what type). Thank you!

Looks pretty good to me, and the ram is fine. Noctua makes some nice quiet fans, and you don't need to overkill on the fans a few intake and a few exhaust will be fine.

Also if you don't plan on SLI in the future you could go for a smaller PSU +/- 600W. If you think you might add a second 970 then your PSU is fine

Drop the thermal paste. The cooler comes with some.

PSU is overkill. Get a cheaper 750w unit form Antec, XFX, Seasonic. This is still more than enough for SLI and overclocking.

You will need a HDD. One 250gb SSD won;t cut it.
