* Will be using it mostly for games on a 1440p/144hz monitor.

Two questions:
1) Should I get a faster ram?
2) Any case you'd like to recommend? I am looking for a good looking case with glass on the side + good airflow.


Notes:
- I already got i9 9900k and the Z390 Asus Formula motherboard. :)
- The 1000w PSU is for future SLI possibility.


Thanks in advance!
 
This should pretty much complete the setup for now...

Going above 3200mhz RAM will kick in diminishing value of return.
The case is good. Here is a review... https://www.tweaktown.com/reviews/8358/thermaltake-view-71-tg-full-tower-chassis-review/index7.html
