Im looking into building this gaming pc sometime next year.. Im hoping to get 60fps + at the either 1080 or 1440p I know the cpu isnt overclockable so should i bother with the liquid cooler? I just thought it might be good for future proofing/life span Is there anything that i could get cheaper ? my budget is around $2000.

Lots of opinions welcome Thanks everyone

This would be very good for 1440p. If you are going for 1440p, I would suggest a 27" monitor though like the PB278Q or MX27AQ. (The MX lacks VESA mounting but has thinner bezels. Both are very good and IPS panels). I changed the PSU to a higher quality one and got rid of the CPU cooler. An Intel CPU cooler will come with the 6500 and that will be more than enough for your CPU to be cool.
