I am looking for a PC build quote. First timer here...

I am looking to build a PC specifically for using Adobe Lightroom & Photoshop photo editing and then just general web browsing and streaming. I want an attractive compact pc. I would have gone mini ITX motherboard however want the ability to add RAM in future if needed.

I am looking for a complete build including key board, mouse, usb 3 sd card reader, monitor etc. I am undecided on these items, mainly the monitor. I am torn between 4k and good colour calibration. I need a good quality screen but don't think my budget can achieve 4k. Ideally I would love a double screen setup, again budget....

Below is a wrap sheet of what I have been looking at. Budget all up needs to be below $3.5k the lower the better.

CPU: Intel - Core i7-8700K 3.7GHz 6-Core Processor
CPU Cooler: Noctua - NH-U12S 55.0 CFM CPU Cooler
Motherboard: MSI - Z370M GAMING PRO AC Micro ATX LGA1151 Motherboard
Memory: Corsair - Vengeance LPX 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR4-3000 Memory
Storage: Samsung - 960 EVO 250GB M.2-2280 Solid State Drive
Storage: Western Digital - BLACK SERIES 2TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive
Video Card: EVGA - GeForce GTX 1060 6GB 6GB SC GAMING Video Card
Case: NZXT - H400i MicroATX Mini Tower Case
Power Supply: EVGA - SuperNOVA G3 650W 80+ Gold Certified Fully-Modular ATX Power Supply
Monitor: BenQ - SW2700PT 27.0" 2560x1440 60Hz Monitor

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

Many thanks and kind regards,
