Hi, I want to build a RGB PC this summer that can handle 1440p gaming @ 60+ FPS. Additionally, I need a (new) monitor as I currently only have a old, bad monitor lol. Thus, I'm looking for recommendations for the best build that has RGB, a good monitor (144hz 1440p or 1440p 75 hz), and is under $1600! I am in the United States and have access to a MicroCenter (if that matters).

It doesn't need to be super fancy RGB or all RGB - just something that'll look nice and get the job done, thanks!

EDIT: I don't need Windows as I have a free copy from my university

Sweet, this all looks mostly good to me, thanks mate!
One question tho. Do I need the 750W PSU as I would think at most I would need 650-700w?
