I am looking to build a new gaming rig looking to run pretty much all AAA latest games on max settings or at least close to

I need to buy a new monitor but I dont know whether to use the budget for a 1440p monitor or 1080p and 120hz
Monitor budget is £150

Parts advice would be good also - Leeway on the price isn't really an option

I chose the Motherboard due to the WiFi and Bluetooth additions that I need also

RX 5600XT is't exactly the card for 1440p if you want max settings... i would advice to go with 1080p monitor.
The other parts, if your not OC fan, they are good.

1080p would be a better resolution unless you can upgrade the video card, for the motherboard be prepared to have to update the BIOS to work with the processor ( that board can be updated without a processor) the power supply is out of stock if supplies over their are like in the US good luck even finding a decent one that is in stock.
