Does This Build Look Good?

Cutters

I've finally come up with a build that I think is good. I plan to only game on this PC. Is this build future proof? If I choose to go SLI in the future will it be fine? Since I'm getting a 1440p monitor, will I still be able to max out most games with good FPS or should I stick with a 1080p? I'll only be getting a 512gb SSD for now since I've never gone past 250gb.

Any suggestions or comments you have about this build will be greatly appreciated.
