A RTX 3080 is probably enough for 1440p 100 fps, but its up to you.

Have you overclocked your 9700k? Mine is, and it boosts to 5.1 GHz on all cores.

I might get a higher-quality PSU if I was you...

Personally I'd go for a gold-rated PSU to help avoid frying that very expensive card. Do you plan on getting a new motherboard or keep your current one?

Thanks for the advice!

Honestly I may just hold out another year or two and take my stab at a full build. Current PC is an Alienware. Didn't really have the time to research or understand pc building until recently, so I think I should have enough courage to give it a go.
