First Time Gaming PC Build Help

Here is my list that I have started with
Long time console gamer and I am ready to make the switch to PC! Just want to get some advice before I start my build. I am not planning on buying anything until Cyber Monday as that is when I am assuming some more deals will come up. I have watched tons of videos on PC assembly so I feel confident in that area, I am mainly concerned about getting the right parts. Also want to be able to upgrade in the future and have this current build last 2-3 years.

Budget: Under $900
Region: USA
Games: 60fps at 1080p with high settings on big name games would be great. Play mostly older games but am looking to get into the newer titles.
Peripherals: own a mouse, keyboard and OS but I will need to get a monitor. Clueless on monitors so suggestions here are greatly appreciated.
Don't plan on overclocking or custom cooling.
I also have an old 500gb hard drive that I'm going to include in the build for some extra storage (mainly music)

Thanks in advance to anyone posting on this thread!

I'd go for

1440p IPS, $250

or maybe

1080p 144hz, and TN sadly, but it is free-sync capable, so better if you're into games like CS:GO

Otherwise there are 1080p IPS displays around 100 bucks, which could get you a better GPU

Korean 1440p. I got one of theses monitors and they are amazing for the price but, each one with have its own quirks. Plus its overclock-able most to 90+ hz (mine is at 107 hz)

here is my build if you just wanted to game with a 1080p monitor. The gpu is a bit overkill but still pretty good

I'd go with a korean panel as @doctordeath528 suggested, a 390, different PSU and a smaller SSD (to try and bring down the price a bit).

$15 over but it's not too much of a stretch...
