A $1500 Build

So this is a build I put together, it was orignally going to be a $1000 build, but things added up, and yea. Anyways I'm wondering if there's something I could do to give me more bang for my buck, since I'm not too familary with builds this expensive, I m pretty sure there are somethings that can be tweaked that could lower the price or just give me better parts for a simliar price. This is the Build.
