First of all, what are you going to use this build for?

(I don't know whether any changes need to be made, or whether this list is OK)

Well, it looks OK, but you could make some changes

  • Higher refresh rate screen (the 1660TI is capable of much more than 75Hz)
  • Better keyboard and mouse
  • Cheaper SSD, fans and RAM kit

I like it, just out of curiosity, why the Samsung ssd, but especially why did you pick that mobo, I feel like u could save some money there.

You're going in the right direction, I think. The weak point looks to me to be the monitor; the 2600 and 1660 Ti ought to be able to beat 75 fps in a lot of games, and the monitor can't go any faster than 75 Hz (75 fps). I'd suggest a 144Hz monitor with adaptive sync: either gsync (expensive) or Freesync (but make sure it's Freesync over DisplayPort, as nvidia don't do Freesync over HDMI).

If you want to trim costs a bit, you could drop the RAM speed to 3000 (CL16 or better) and only suffer a small performance loss. You can also find less expensive SSD's than that Samsung; Mushkin Source, for instance, and it will be just as good in a gaming situation.
