Yes, pcpartpicker doesn't have that part though, which is annoying.

I think someone else might have a better answer for your motherboard because all of the motherboards I ever buy are budget oriented. Your case is $120 and in my experience, those expensive cases are usually worth it... usually. There are always exceptions. But with budget cases like sub $60, they cut too many corners and you lose a lot of that convenience that again, is one of the most important aspects of a case. They should be easy to get into and tinker inside of.

Your SSD is 250 GB which is good. I have a 120 GB but I bought mine a few years ago when they were more expensive. The good thing about an SSD and HDD combo is that if your games, gamesaves, movies, ect. are on your HDD, then you have much more flexibility with upgrading and not having to reinstall all of your games. Like if you buy a new motherboard and have to reinstall Windows, only the stuff on the SSD will need to be wiped, but everything on the HDD is fine (for the most part). This is why I put a copy of all of my SSD stuff onto my HDD in a folder called "SSD Stuff." I don't put the Windows files. But things like desktop themes, photos, Office documents, ect. all have a copy on my HDD just in case something happens.

Your PSU is 750W and that is perfect for a single graphics card. You will be able to do 2 way SLI on it with no problems unless you are doing weird stuff like custom loop cooling on everything, but honestly I don't think you are there yet and when you do get there, you will have a more specific PSU in mind for that because when you get into custom loops, the PSU choice is geared more towards how it will help your loop perform. At least that's how it is with a buddy of mine on here. If you were to go up to 3 or 4 way SLI which is kind of ridiculous if you are doing it just for gaming, then you need a higher wattage PSU. The 80 gold rating is good. 80 Plus Gold is more efficient and will provide more power to your system per unit that is taken from the wall. It will decrease your energy bill but probably about a dollar or less per month. But still, at the end of the year you can buy yourself a McDonalds meal and say, "I earned this!"

PontiacGTX, TwoCables, and Shilka (whose motto under his name is truer than the sky being blue, although buying from a known brand does give you better customer service and RMA options) would probably have great advice for getting a motherboard that will perform in the future.

EDIT: And I don't mean that doing a bunch of custom loop cooling is weird, but for him it would be weird to get into that now if he is just building a PC for probably the first or second time. Right? Is this your first or second build? Or do you have more building experience?

Just FYI, I have only built 2 PCs in my life. I have upgraded everything in them about once a year, but I have only owned 3 motherboards, 2 cases, and 4 PSUs. But I have owned over 5 graphics cards, 3 SSDs, over 10 HDDs, Lots of mice and keyboards, and 1 set of budget speakers because I am pro. So when it comes to motherboards or PSUs, I am not the guy to ask. When it comes to making sensible choices and getting the most out of your money, I might be able to teach you something.

Alright, so to recap.
1- Change my PSU to the G2 (Oh and pcpartpicker does have the G2 but only in 1000W and 13000W which is absurd)
2- Potentially upgrade my MOBO to future prrof my machine
3- Go to Best Buy and see If I want to spend more money on an ISP monitor
4- Potentially downsize my monitor to around 24"
5- Look at the R2 90 (I think?) graphics card

You mean IPS right?

Are you talking to me? Because I know that. But I think if you are going that high in wattage then you need to have a nice 80 Plus rating because there are red flags if you buy a 750W PSU and it doesn't have an 80 Plus rating. And I tried throwing you a compliment and if you are responding to me saying I am not aware then I am sorry I tried giving you a compliment by saying you would be a reliable source.

In my experience, when I buy a TV or a monitor, I want to see that performing in front of me before paying money for it. If Best Buy is a bit more expensive, that is ok because at least you will know what you are getting. BUT! Make sure the guy in the store lets you mess around with the brightness, backlighting, contrast, ect. before buying it.
