My current PC (and my first build) is now 4 years old and showing signs of age in both speed (for newer games) and reliability (USBs can be a bit temperamental with certain peripherals, old 390X GPU failed and replaced with a second-hand 1070 to keep me running)
I'd also like to step up to 1440p gaming from 1080p
Will mainly use it for flying/playing DCS (which is dreadfully optimised in many ways and needs high single-core clock speeds and 32GB to play smoothly)
Anyway - TL/DR I need a powerful new Gaming PC with an Intel CPU and 32GB RAM
I've been refining my build over the last few week and am nearly ready to drop my hard-earned...but can the great and good at Tom's cast their (far more knowledgeable) eyes over this and come back with any thoughts/recommendations/substitutions

Looks good,don't play the game so cannot realy say it's optimized for that. If you want suggestions to make a cheaper could you maybe look at a RTX 2080 super which is still a powerfull gpu.
A 650watt psu like the one you chose. Kinda depends if that really is a big difference in price.
Guess the big 32" curved monitor is to really get that immersive experience.
