Is this the best build I can get for around $1,000?

This is my first gaming rig I'm going to build. My budget is $1,000 not counting peripherals.

Build: https://pcpartpicker.com/list/8h33J8

Let me know if there's anything you'd change or add! Thanks

What resolution is your monitor?

Haven't chose one yet.

Well, at what resolution do you want to play at? It will make a big difference to the CPU and GPU you actually need.

1080p 144hz

Ok, then I think you are better off with an RTX 2060 and going for a faster CPU.
