First PC Build $750 Budget

I'm 15 and with a matching know-how of computer builds. I have decided that with money I save up after my summer job I will buy all the necassary (what I think is necassary anyway) parts and components to complete a computer build. I have been doing a TON of research online gaining a base of knowledge on the different GPU, CPU, Memory, etc. options that are available. I have chosen what I think are good components for their price. I desperately seek insight into what I am missing and if it is all compatible. Here are the things I have in mind:

Components:
