Not a terrible start but you're definitely going to want to make a few changes. First of all, no SSD is pitiful, especially in an $1100+ system. Case and PSU are fine, but I definitely would avoid them in a system of this budget. That Seasonic PSU is actually a bit over-priced IMO. Cooler is a really poor choice, spend $50-60 on an air cooler and it will perform much better than a 120mm AIO, and the air cooler will more than likely be quieter(obviously depends which air cooler you get though). Lastly, $380 for a GTX 1060? Surely you didn't choose the 1060 at that price? I hope not anyway.

So, answer some questions for us and we can help you.

What is your maximum budget and currency for the system?
What monitor(s) will you be using with the system?
Will you overclock?
What exactly are you actually going to be using the system for?
Anything else?

^ Exactly how he stated it. depends on what games you want to play or if it's for video editing. Again it's highly recommend getting ssd for boot drive. If it's for gaming, put all games on mechanical hard drive. And most importantly, don't cheap out on a build (even if you have to save up for a while). I don't recommend buying cheap keyboards or mice either if you're gonna spend a lot of time on it. Look up reviews as well.

Just my first build and i'm trying to learn about computer's (Really confusing, seem's like a lot goes into it...) Anyway, Max budget would probably should be $800 (USD) But now that i've see what goes into it i'm thinking around $1500 (USD), (and that would be buying just a few part's with every check...) And i'm using just one monitor (Samsung, Not really sure where i would get the information to tell you what type it is besides Curved screen HDMI...) I'd like to eventually try overclocking, but i need to become much more Adept at working with computer's before attempting. And it's hard to say what EXACTLY i'm using it for, Mainly gaming (PUBG, Rust Neir, So-on-so-forth), but i'd like to be able to do some other minor thing's like search the web and generally use it like a computer... hope this will help! (AND Thanks for the help! Deffs much appreciated OwO).
