What resolution and refresh rate is your monitor? Unless I'm missing something, I don't see where that's mentioned. If you are gaming at 4K, you might not see much benefit from a higher-clocked CPU, since your graphics card will typically be limiting performance more than anything. On the other hand, with a 1080p 144+Hz screen with a high-end graphics card, you are likely to see the CPU limiting performance in many games, in which case having higher per-core performance could help. 1440p will tend to be somewhere in between.

Very powerful no compromise build.
You can play any game at max settings at 1440p or if you are into competitive gaming I recommend 1080p gaming. Don't expect it to run 4K max settings. If you already have 4K monitor then it is fine. But if are planning to upgrade one in near future then I recommend going for a 1440p monitor instead of a 4K monitor.
