Unfortunately I don't have anything productive to add. I do have to say that I have been looking for a 2k build as a starting point for myself. And I am keeping a sharp eye on your post hoping people give some insightful advice.
Looks like you would be set for several years to come with that GPU, CPU, and PSU. Love it!
