This is my first build ever and need some advice, my budget is $800 max (not including monitor and peripherals). Any ways to improve this?

Much better price to performance than anything I've seen on here so far. This is a crushing upgrade over the original part list.

If the primary use will be gaming, I could switch out the 2600 for a 1600 and grab a better GPU but that's pushing it.

More realistically, the 5700 could be switched for a 2060 at a slight performance detriment but you'd have better thermals, RTX, and a backplate. Your call.

Enjoy man!

With this budget you should focus on what is necessary to give the best performance possible.

better CPU with better stock cooler

faster RAMs because Ryzen like them

better HDD and super fast NVMe SSD(your windows and games will boot up very fast)

the 1660 Ti will give you the performance that you need for 1080p Gaming.
