Hello There!

So I'm now trying to get back into PC gaming and I am trying to get a PC that will last me through at least 3 years. I have a budget of $1600 but I would prefer less. I would like it to run 60fps on my games on high settings. I have tried to make a build but I'm not sure if it is the best for what I'm looking for. Can someone check it out below? And if it is not good please give me some suggestions. Thank you!
