That RAM is overpriced.

This will do fine and has good quality (I use G-Skill Ripjaws 4 and V myself)

hmmm.... you might like this MOBO, but I don't know if you can pick it up for a decent price in the UK.

In the US it is like 26$ more than the Asus Z170-A

Why are you going to spend 264 on a 60 hz monitor. Also, your build should have a 80+ gold power supply for the parts your installing. 80+ bronze isn't terrible, but if you want your parts to live longer, you should go with the gold.

do u recommend any good 1440p monitor? or maybe even a high refresh rate 1080p one?

I recommend a 144 hz monitor cause it's a lot smoother, but I just realized this is a 1440p monitor, that's why it's $264. You should be fine with it. If you play any fps competitively though, i'd recommend a 144hz monitor over a 60hz 1440p monitor. If you play casually, just get the 1440p.
