Need Help Choosing Parts

I put this parts list together and am looking for some advice. I'm a graduate Architecture (Revit, Photoshop, Illustrator, SketchUp, Premiere Pro) student that games/streams on the side (COD,FIFA,LOL).
Any advice/suggestions would be greatly appreciated. This is my first pc build and I don't want it to  be too large but still upgradeable. Budget's around $1500 +-$200.

    Hey @IceeMofo Welcome to the community!
    It seems like you're a "fan" of the RGB, based on your selection of case fans. The Hyper 212 is an all-around great option for air cooling. I noticed that you had a few Adobe programs listed as programs you'll regularly be using. From my understanding, Adobe offers better support for NVIDIA GPUs, so you may see better performance if you made a change there.
    I think you've got a great selection here. The 3800XT offers great multitasking performance and will perform strongly in rendering tasks. If you plan to have a lot of need for storage, I'd recommend an additional SSD. You've definitely got a strong foundation, and you'll be able to upgrade or change based on what you need as you grow!
