Needing help to see which is the best parts you guys would recommend for me towards either a new AMD or Intel build. I have a budget of $1200 with $1300 being the max and I do my buying new parts on Newegg. The parts im needing to get are a new CPU, GPU, Memory, SSD, and Motherboard because Im gonna reuse the other parts from my current PC. So just needing to see which is the best parts to get for that build for either an AMD build or Intel build and I'll see which one I'll go for.

This would be good for 1440P/3440x1440P & 4K (High-ish settings). If your using it at 1080P I'd recommend using Nvidia DSR 2X at the very least as that will be utilize the GPU and make your games look a bit smoother over AA settings.

If you want RGB memory to go with the RGB CPU cooler & motherboard then swap it to this.
