Trying to keep the price around $1,000-$1,200 for the PC itself and really shooting to game at max 1080p with a stable 80~+ FPS depending on game of course and possibly 1440 if able. :)

I would change Windows to retail one https://pcpartpicker.com/product/wskwrH/microsoft-os-kw900016

Also SSD to MLC one https://pcpartpicker.com/product/cjcMnQ/mushkin-internal-hard-drive-mknssdre512gb

You sure you want water cooling for CPU? That's very expensive and cheaper air cooler is more than enough.

Oh for the cooling (now don't judge too hard b/c I know how many people are these days with RGB, lol) I just wanted to get a really awesome looking centerpiece for the mobo in a RGB style since this is my first PC build and I loooove the way the NZXT liquid cooling looks. I haven't really searched for other RGB coolers but I know it's a bit overkill but like I said it just looks so awesome.. Haha. Also what's the difference between the Windows OS? Sorry, I'm coming from a life of Mac and it's an interesting transition. Haha

Whatever cooling you decide, is your own choice. If you like it and can afford it, then go for it.

Windows I linked is retail, meaning you can transfer it very easily from one machine to other. With OEM, that is either not possible or is harder.
