Looking for any advice on my new build. I am looking for the PC to perform solidly in most games at 1440p 144hz.
I already have the GPU and monitor. I built this with the intention of lasting me awhile and leaving room to incrementally upgrade without having to start from the ground up.
Most importantly want to make sure there are not any bottlenecks I am missing.

Thanks for the help and advice.

Approximate Purchase Date: ASAP

Budget Range: Not tied to a price but midrange PC goal and even parts performance

Are you buying a monitor: Yes

Parts to Upgrade: Starting fresh so need all parts

Do you need to buy OS: Yes - Windows

Preferred Website(s) for Parts: Mostly Besbuy, amazon, and newegg

Location: California

Parts Preferences: No

Overclocking: Maybe

SLI or Crossfire: No

Your Monitor Resolution: 2560x1440

And Most Importantly, Why Are You Upgrading:
Current computer is getting dated and performance is starting to degrade. Running a GTX 960 at 1080p 60hz and looking to upgrade to 1440p 144hz.
 
Thanks for the help so far.
For a Ryzen 7 I'd imagine going with a 5800x?
I do like the current corsair case but could definitely look at a 360mm AIO.
I plan on upgrading the 3060 ti at some point in the next year or two but currently it's what I could get my hands on, at least for MSRP.
The upcoming i5 12400F and i7 12700F expected to retail at $200 and $280 are worth considering. The B660 boards will probably retail for $140 - $160+ depending on how much goodies you want with your motherboard. btw the new $300 Alder Lake i5 12600K/KF beats both the 5600x and 5800x in gaming.

For 1440p I would try for a 3070ti card and 850 watt PSU.

I'd try and look at a higher spec'd processor, like a Ryzen 7. I'd also look into an mitx or matx chassis since I tend to deviate with smaller form factor builds and also try and shoehorn a 280mm radiator as opposed to a 240mm. If you stick to the Corsair case listed above, then pick out a 360mm AIO. You already have the RTX3060Ti but I'd have looked into an RTX3070 or higher for 1440p, with upcoming titles, they can and will tax the GPU more than they are now.

I don't really want to wait for the unreleased CPUs you mentioned but the 12600k does sound tempting. I'm debating if the price increase for a z690 board is worth it.

Awesome this looks like what I am going to pull the trigger on then.
I was looking at the PSU and noticed these two listings:
https://www.newegg.com/seasonic-focus-plus-850-gold-ssr-850fx-850w/p/N82E16817151188

and

Seasonic FOCUS GX-850, 850W 80+ Gold, Full-Modular, Fan Control in Fanless, Silent, and Cooling Mode, Perfect Power Supply for Gaming and Various Application, SSR-850FX. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07WVMDZMZ/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_glt_fabc_W3RHZNN211KKJV87SQ39

is there a difference between the two? On Amazon it shows the first available date as 2019 but Newegg shows 2017. Are they different release models or is it nothing to worry about?

Seasonic has several different "Focus" lines. It has changed quite a bit in the last year or 2, so I would go to Seasonic's web site and do a proper investigation.

You may be able to save some money without sacrificing quality if you go with semi-modular rather than fully modular.
