You went with the hyper 212 and I recommend something better because the 2600x can be overclocked and 212 won't be able to overclock it that much. I also changed the graphics card because you were spending a bit too much just for an ROG brand. The evga card has just as good cooling when overclocked. I changed your case to something that would fit the theme and it's cheaper yet better. I changed your ram to 3000mhz but if you could go a bit over your budget I recommend you change it back to 3200mhz just because you will get slightly better performance
