Hey,

Build looks good, got some changes you might want to consider tho.

There are components which imo you're spending too much money on. Like CPU, MOBO and the SSD. If you cut some things there you can get yourself a GTX 1080. I think a GTX 1080 is much better if you aim for a constant 144 fps on a 144hz monitor. Altough this build costs 100 bucks more than what you proposed I would recommend you this. If you don't want a GTX 1080 I still recommend you getting that cheaper but still faster RAM and another SSD (you won't really see a difference between those 2). Same goes for the motherboard. I would recommend you the Asus Z170-A, just because it looks so great with your case, but couldn't find any price for it on the austrian (pun intended) pcpartpicker page.

It won't make a huge difference but you could get some faster ram.

The 840 EVO SSD drive is an older one from 2013, I'd get the 850 EVO or other options that are current.

If you're also going to be holding a lot of video files, I might suggest you get more hard drive space (not necessarily now, but in the future) and get an 850 EVO or newer SSD like Crazyfool said.

Also, the Dell S2716DG has the same features of the ASUS ROG Swift PG278Q so if you're only getting it for the specs and not the 'elite gaming look' then you could get that instead.
