This is my first PC build, and I'm trying to stick in a budget 2250$ Cad. (Sorry about it not being US) Any Tips or suggestions are greatly appreciated. (I would like to have ARGB on my case fans, but no where else is necessary) (I don't mind changing up any of the components, including GPU)

Case: Corsair 4000d Airflow
PSU: Corsair RMx 750x
GPU: Gigabyte GeForce RTX 3060ti (3x)
CPU: Intel i5 12600k
Motherboard: Gigabyte Z690 AORUS Elite AX DDR4
RAM: Corsair Vengeance LPX 16gb (2x8Gb)
SSD: MSI Spatium M480 PCIe 4.0 1Tb
CPU Cooler: Arctic Freezer ii 240mm-ARGB
Case Fans: 3-Arctic P12 ARGB
1-Arctic P12 ARGB

Thanks for the help.

This is my monitor
Acer 31.5" FHD 165Hz 1ms GTG Curved VA LED FreeSync Gaming Monitor (ED320QR Sbiipx)

Solid build other than I'd switch up on the SSD and get a cheaper one that doesn't come with a heatsink seeing how that Gigabyte board comes with two M.2 heatsinks. I'll use this one for example.
