I dont think the 2070 with that monitor is an issue.

The only glaring issue is the PSU. Its old, overpriced, and mediocre. evga g3 would be a better choice

I'm open to good suggestions for more reliable PSUs under $70 before sales/rebate

If you drop the unnecessary optical drive, and change a few other things, you could upgrade the CPU

I have the optical drive because I have a decently sized collection of blu-ray movies and I want them backed up, but I will consider the Bitfenix Whisper M PSU

So that is a great setup except there is one problem instead of getting a 2070 get a 1080 ti for a little bit more to take full advantage of the monitor and I’m just gonna put this out there your cpu cooler doesn’t have to be expensive

to address what you've said, I'll give you some rationale on the GPU and Cooler. I wanted the RTX 2070 because it's still really powerful, I wanted the RTX capabilities for future titles that may support it, and most of the games I play are older and/or less demanding (I mainly play Hearts of Iron 4, Victoria 2, Team Fortress 2, and Paladins). The cooling solution is so I can A: Get good overclocks, and B: Have it be somewhat quiet

O that’s makes sense but you can just get some cooler master sickle flow fans around case and save money but get more airflow that’s what i did and my overclocking are fine

1: I don't want more LEDs 2: I want PWM support on the fans
