I'm doing my best to create a 1440p gaming pc for about $900 (not including the monitor). Any suggestions are appreciated
Doesn't look too bad,
are you going for High FPS 1440? or are you just gooing for the 60FPS bare minimum?
If you are just going for 60FPS, a 1660Ti should be enough.
better SSD is all I could think on for the budget:

Raid the piggy bank for another $20 or so and get an MSI B450 Tomahawk motherboard, which has better heat sink cooling for future upgrading. I have no argument with the rest of the list.
Edited: if you're building right now, you might consider going with a 1600 CPU and saving the change towards a Ryzen 3000 upgrade down the line. If you aren't building now, you might want to start with a Ryzen 3600.
Thanks for the ideas, most likely I will save for the 3600 if it ends up being worth it.
