I will use 2 sticks, 16 gb ram...
What PSU should I select then?
& I don't own monitor. Do I need to change monitor?
Budget 1180 dollar
Missed the 2 sticks part, just make sure there in the same 2x8gb kit as buying them separately there's a small chance they may not work together even if they're identical.

Ideal PSU would be the Seasonic Focus Gold 650W, Corsair CXM (grey label) 650W as the budget choice but the Seasonic Focus Gold is a much superior unit. When it comes to PSU's you don't want to cheap out as it's literally the heart of your system and a junk unit could ruin your other parts.

I'd get a better or at least bigger monitor, 24" is a good size for 1080P but if possible I would get one that supports Freesync as they are pretty cheap nowadays and it would help with FPS dips and stuttering.

Is that budget in USD? Canadian? Australian?

It's in USD.
And thanks a lot for helping me.
I have another ques, how many casing fans I need if I have a cooler?
& Is the UPS okay?

For the budget I'd get this. The CPU comes with a good CPU cooler and the 1660 ti outperforms the RX 590. The case is good for cooling with a good price and fans can be added in later.

You can use Freesync with a Nvidia GPU by using a Displayport cable and following these directions.

Any reason for the UPS? Do you lose power often?

Yes, that's why I need UPS.
😅
 
I'm mostly in agreement with @WildCard999 's suggested build. Assuming you're buying parts in the US, it might be better to go down from a GTX 1660 to a GTX 1660, which is still plenty for 1920x1080. You might even consider an RX 580 and save more money, but that does consume more power than the GTX 1660, and while it doesn't perform as well, it's considered a good card for 1920x1080 @ 60fps with high details.

Definitely get a monitor with FreeSync, though, I wouldn't aim for one that can do 144Hz. That said, it seems like these days, a monitor with a 144 maximum refresh is generally not much more than one with a lower maximum refresh, but if you can find a good one, say that tops out at 75Hz, for significantly less money, it's worth considering.

I see, if that needs to be including in the budget then minus it from the 1180 and we can rework the build. As @King_V stated, even the 1660 6gb would be a solid 1080P gaming GPU. As for the 144hz monitor the price was so close to the 75hz that for longevity sake getting the faster refresh rate would be ideal, especially if you play competitive FPS. Also disregard the error warning, the MSI MAX boards have been updated to work with the 3rd gen Ryzen CPU's. The Intel 660P NVMe M.2 SSD has more storage and is much faster then the SSD you chose.

Thank you so much for your help <3
