Hi there!  I'm not as experienced as some others here, but have been doing some research for building my own PC recently, so I may have some thoughts.

The first thing I noticed is that you chose a i9-9900 CPU.  While that seems like an excellent CPU in many ways, I don't think its strengths lie with gaming.  Depending on price point, you might actually be better off going with a i7-9700k.  Consider the benchmarks here:  https://cpu.userbenchmark.com/Compare/Intel-Core-i7-9700K-vs-Intel-Core-i9-9900/4030vsm816115  

(BTW, I noticed when researching the i9-9900, it is hard to find a lot of info, with most of what is available referencing the i9-9900k).

Otherwise, I also see you selected the standard PSU.  I actually did the same, but have read online that this may be a mistake, and the standard PSUs can be low quality.  Other members seem to recommend swapping out.  In terms of alternatives, my gut feeling is that 1000w is overkill, so you can probably safely select something lower wattage, but with a known name brand.

Lastly, if you are in the U.S., I have also seen other suggest going with the extended warranty that covers free shipping back to Cyberpower.  Others also often recommend to pay for extra packaging during shipping.

Otherwise, the video card, motherboard, RAM and hard drive choices all look great to me.  Seems like it will be a powerful PC!

As a small additional point, am I correct that you intend to buy two chairs to go with this?
