Are these parts worth the price to upgrade my current rig so that it can run games at 1440p 144hz.

I have been thinking of upgrading recently, but I am not for sure on what I am doing because I have only been pc gaming for a few years now. My current rig is Motherboard: MSI 760GMA p34 Micro ATX AM3
CPU: AMD FX-8320 3.5 GHz 8 core
Video Card: MSI R9 390
PSU: Corsair CSM 750w 80+ Gold Certified Semi-Modular ATX. I have been thinking of putting in almost all new parts in my computer-
These are all the parts I could come up with.
CPU-
AMD Ryzen 7 2700 Processor with Wraith Spire LED Cooler
Gpu- Gtx 1080 g1 gaming
MotherBoard-
MSI X470GPLUS Performance GAMING AMD X470 Ryzen 2 AM4 DDR4
Ram-
G.SKILL 16GB (2 x 8GB) Ripjaws V Series DDR4. All these components amount to $1,196.95 USD on amazon and I would like to know if this is a good upgrade and that I would not be wasting my money. Or are there components that are alot better than these that are only a few hundred dollars more.
Thanks
 
For 144hz ryzen is not the answer, I would suggest this :
