Upgrade from 1080p to 1440p gaming on a budget. some parts remained such as motherboard and case as didn't see a need to change them. Haven't bought a 1440p monitor yet but am using it plating The division 2 on ultra settings at 75fps (only have 75mhz monitor) and the temperatures stay really low on CPU and GPU. Benchmarking tests i have done have had really great scores and much better than builds that are considered more powerful. Very quiet when doing normal stuff. Maybe motherboard upgrade in future and bigger case for better airflow.

Nice 1440p budget build. Congratulations! I'm glad you spend nearly half of it on the GPU, like gamers should. Keep an eye on monitor prices as you can often find blow-outs for 50% off or more. Please add some close-up pics if you can. Thanks for posting. Enjoy!
