What is your work? You certainly don't need that spec for 1440p gaming.

you could definitely get away with a way less expensive build then lol. What games are you planning to play?

Currently - PUBG and BFV

I picked such expensive stuff based on the fact that I really don't want to have to upgrade in a few years. My current PC, I built in 2008, and other than replacing the GPU and HDD when the old ones stopped working, it still plays most stuff with decent frame rates at 1080p

The monitor is actually $599 on Amazon, and I forgot to include the $100 for Windows 10 in the original post

32gb of memory is not needed or the i9.

Adds a 1TB SSD for your games RGB cooler and the back RGB fan saves you a lot and a very good gaming PC.

The monitor is also very good and Gsync. The 2080ti is not worth the extra money for a 1440p monitor.

One more question.........I currently have a Gigabyte GeForce 1060 6gb video card; would reusing this card allow me to play current games, mostly BFV and PUBG, with decent settings at 1440p? Is it worth upgrading to the 2080?
