Is there any problems, compatibility issues, or some other part you would recommend?
I would use it for a computer major (in high school, still haven't decided yet, maybe programming/data analysis), gaming, video streaming, internet surfing, and other general purposes. I am in CA, USA. Also, would this build be relatively good enough to last around 5 years, not straying too far from the standard high end stuff. I would like to buy it as early as possible, but I don't need it until college, which is like 3 years away. Should I buy it now, wait for the price to drop, or wait for better parts?

What you listed could be easily described as ideal. Very good job.
"There is a cult of ignorance in the United States, and there always has been. The strain of anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that 'my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge.'" -- Isaac Asimov
