First PC build help!

Apr 2, 2024

Hello all! I am going to building my first PC in about 2 months time, with a budget of 1500CAD before tax, preferably less. I will mainly be playing MSFS2020 (soon 2024!) at hopefully 40-50FPS at all ultra settings, along with some XP12. This is my current list , could I get some feedback on how to maybe cut the price down a bit? (1080P! but will upgrade in 2-3 years maybe!) I also want to make sure the cooler won't touch the GPU ! The cooler of choice looks a bit.... large...?

- Thank you!
