Minimal first build

Hi there you beautiful folk! Behold my first ever build and a dream come true for me. Since young I have been wanting to create my own build but never had the time nor finances to achieve this. Years down the line and here we are. Never give up on your dreams however small/big you think they are! For some of you this might seem like nothing and you do it regularly but at the end of the day we all have different standards in regards to our own achievements.
My knowledge on desktops and its components were non existent up until August of 2018 until I started to scratch the itch and feed my own desires. Months of research and saving finally led to me taking the first step and purchase my first parts and initializing the build, 8 months on and here we are!
There are still some parts I am interested in getting for this build including a nice 500GB or 1TB Samsung 970 EVO Plus NVMe M.2 SSD for its OS and programs to run from but this will probably come in the following weeks as this will require me to have either migrate or re-install everything.
Like I said, my knowledge is limited so if there are any suggestions or recommendations I would surely take these on board and consider them.

Thanks for taking your time out to view my build and good luck to all!
