Thoughts on the below please? A friend has been helping me but I'd like a few more opinions and to validate what's he's telling me as I haven't built a PC in over 10 years!

PCPartPicker part list: https://uk.pcpartpicker.com/list/RfBRxG

I'm in the UK and want a solid gaming PC that will last me a good few years, mainly for FPS games 1440p @ 144hz.

Budget is approx £2500.

I'm really out of the loop so any guidance would be much appreciated while I try to catch myself up!

Thanks. That monitor is quite a bit cheaper. Any particular reason for choosing that one over the one I had in there?

IndividualSOULS 2 points 2 months ago

It was cheaper. Also I upgrade you to an rtx 2080.

The monitor is cheaper because its freesync not gsync.

You dont need 32gb of memory or a M.2 drive for a gaming PC Doubles your SSD space and upgrades to a RTX 2080.

The only time you would need 32gb of memory is if you were going VR gaming.

Ah yes, missed that on the monitor. Thanks for the reply. I think I'd like to stick with 32GB RAM in case I venture into VR in future, but other than that I'm liking the look of that build.

Anything else I should be considering with monitors if I stretched the budget a bit? I only want a single monitor setup so want to make sure it's the right one. Is 4K going to be out of the question, or even worth it?

Zerk2012 1 Build 1 point 2 months ago

For 4K your really going yo needvthe 2080ti.

If I was buying just any monitor i wished I would get the 1440p wide screen close to 3K resolution.
