That's a decent build- although you probably aren't going to be hitting 240fps (it is a freesync screen though so it will scale to match the fps the gpu is spitting out).

It depends on the games and settings you want to play, however if you are after 200+ fps CSGO, you might want to look at an Intel cpu just to get the higher clock speeds (you can't really push Ryzen past 4.2 ghz, to get really high fps you ideally want an Intel chip overclocked up to 5ghz, e.g. an i5 9600k). On the flip side, if you are planning on playing at ultra settings anyway then the gpu will be the limiting factor (you should still get 100+ fps with a setup like that, depending on the game in question)- and the big advantage of going with the AMD platform is you should have a strong upgrade path to the new Zen 2 cpu's due out soon (which should hit higher clocks + offer more cores).

I can +1 for what screwy said, the 144hz 1440p panels are reasonably affordable and right now, I think they offer the best gaming experience IMO. And the build you have should work great for that.
