Damn. Sorry, first time actually building a pc. The monitor is 27 inches so I thought that might mean something. That's okay, I'll just take a 24 inch one. But the bigger problem is the compatibility. I'm not sure if all the parts will go together like they're supposed to lol.

You dint get the point that monitor is just Full HD resolution and not 2K or 4K as you expect. As you aim to play at higher resolution of 2K/4K that is not suitable monitor.

If you need a 2K/4K monitor we will include one in the list.

If you wanna stick with 1080p gaming for now then this PC will give you best performance for that budget.

You can Initially run PC without activating Windows and simply activate it later.

Get better cooler as that will not be sufficient. If you want a good looking cooler .

This will be really good. Maintains temps in check. You can mount radiator at rear as exhaust.
Are you sure about that H60 on 9900k?
At base clocks, ok. But once those cores start boosting... can that cooler really keep up?
A definite no if the OP is interested - or later takes an interest - in overclocking.
 
After going back and forth a lot I've come up with this:

Do you have anything to say/add/remove etc.?
Get a better cpu cooler.
Replace RTX 2080 with RTX 2070 super (same performance for less $).
Replace monitor with 27" 2k 144hz.

Why do you think I should replace the monitor?
 
Even 144Hz is overkill. There's no need to go to a 180 or 240Hz monitor. Don't waste extra money on what the human eye can't see and most video cards can't provide you with. Those extra-high refresh numbers are nothing more than money wasted for bragging rights.

And, the 27 inch monitor from your original build will, in my opinion, be more comfortable to look at even at 1080p than the same resolution at 24 inches.

Even at 1080p, do you really feel you need 2K resolution?

That is pointless to pair weaker GPU(RTX 2070 Super) with higher resolution monitor. Yes RTX 2070 Super is near to RTX 2080 performance but still RTX 2080 edges 2070 Super in demanding games.

Stick with 1080p resolution and higher refresh-rate monitor if you expect longer lasting PC without the requirement of upgrade.
