First time building a pc, wondering if all of these parts will work well together

I am building a gaming PC for the first time, I have general knowledge of parts although I am not aware if all of these parts will work well together.

Note: I am aware to not overclock the CPU past 4.4 without liquid cooling.

    1. your psu is low quality. evga series goes b1<b2<gs<g2<p2<t2. you selected b1. g2 is the SAME price on amazon. b1 is garbage for a gtx 980.
    2. i recommend a more robust cooler for the i7. the 212 evo still runs hot from personal experience.
    3. i'd like to touch on you buying two gaming monitors with 144hz. two monitor gaming doesnt make sense, so why do you need to spend a lot of money on a second one? you could get a good secondary monitor for much cheaper or if you had tripple monitors it would make sense. even in that case a single 980 ti wouldnt handle tripple 144hz monitors anywhere near their potential. it would make more sense on a tripple monitor setup, with one strong gpu, to get three 60hz monitors.
    4. an ssd is a great addition and will make your system faster overall.

    it would look like this:
