1)Overspending on a 2080 Super for just 1080p. That's more worthwhile for higher resolutions.
2)No need for an 850w psu either.

3)Flat VS curved is up to you. If there are any electronics stores open for you, go to them and sample their curved displays.
It's a love it or hate it scenario.


Yes, but you're still wasting on a 2080 Super at 1080p... not to mention, you're pushing the thermal limits of the NZXT H510.
It is a nice case, but the biggest shortcoming is the extent of the cpu and gpu hardware - the high power consuming ones - you can put in there and reasonably keep cool.
You would have to liquid cool a 2080 Super in that case.
