So I'm fairly new to PC building. I'm not completely ignorant to how PCs work because my roomate builds and works on computers all the time and sometimes I help him. I've been playing consoles pretty much my whole life, and about 6 months ago I heard that you can get lots of better performance out of a computer than a console and it is cheaper in the long run. Now I'm the type of guy who likes to research stuff that he hears to make sure it's true. And sure enough! I learned that you can get much better graphics and performance out of PCs and it's a computer too, so I can do everything a normal computer can do on it. So I recently set out to build my own gaming computer. After about 2 months of research and looking at hundreds of different parts, I came up with this little machine here. I set a $1500 budget for everything from the keyboard to the CPU.
Prices include shipping, taxes, and discounts when available.

I really hope I can get some constuctive feedback on this build because I spent months planning it out. I don't have the OS listed because my roomate is going to let me borrow his to use. He is also going to help me build it and set it up when I order the parts. Anyway, thanks in advance for any help you decide to give me!
