Looking to build a pc MOSTLY for gaming and a lot of multitasking with a montior.
I want a 1440p monitor but they are costly...Rather not use an 1080p but seems like I have no choice with this budget

https://pcpartpicker.com/list/tzQN29
Was considering this but i heard pure clock speed is better for gaming and i5 8600k can OC to 5ghz no problem and ive OC an 8700k so im pretty confident .
My only issue is my budget...its $1200 with the monitor. I want a Gsync but they cost so much

Any advice on another build or an improved build with i5 . Any help would greatly be appreciated. Don't really care what it looks like , just not super ugly or loud.

Respectable
Intel will cost you more expensive. The i 5-6600k is more expensive and doesn't come with a cooler. What you can do with you build right now is try to save a bit of money on every part. Like this:

Just get 120Gb of SSD to install windows and all the main programs/software. Then when you have money, you can just buy an extra one and add it later.
 
I would say it's worth it to get this config :

For the cost of your build, with some tweaks, 1440p is possible.

You do know the current generation is the 8600K right? And Intel is not more expensive, you do need a cooler, but you do not need a D15 or R1 to achieve optimal cooling on an 8600K, and it can be done on that budget.

Intel is more expensive, as the Intel prices have been going up, as of late, due to supply issues, on Intel's end. Their 14nm process issues are rearing their ugly head. An H310c chipset being produced on an older process, because of it as well. https://www.tomshardware.com/news/intel-14nm-shortage-h310c,37819.html

A 2600x is $70 cheaper than an 8600k right now. No amount of tinkering, with that budget, is going to make an 8600k doable, with that price difference, plus another $35 ish for a Cryorig H7, without making some considerable sacrifices.
