So my specs are:
Bitfenix Aegis Micro-ATX Case
Gigabyte z97x-Gaming 5 motherboard
2x Corsair vengance 8GB DDR4 2400MHz Ram
Corsair 750w power supply
i7 4790k Devils canyon overclocked 4.2 CPU
Corsair H100i Cpu water cooler
GTX 1080 FTW2


My plan is to upgrade the motherboard to a ASUS z390-A.
Upgrade the CPU to a i9 9900k 5GHz
and also upgrade the case to a full tower with more fan slots to use.

Budget of around £800

I'm almost certain you are running ddr3 ram so you will have to fit new ddr4 dimms into your budget as well.

You cannot be, that cpu & motherboard used DDR3 only.

What do you want the system to do better? Without knowing the goal we cannot say what is best.
Im hoping to push it to do 144FPs on Multitudes of games at relatively high settings if not 60fps on ultra at 1080p on all games.

Is that the CXM with Green Lable. If yes then you definitely need new PSU. Trust us, we are recommending you the right thing.
750W - Corsair CS750M 80 PLUS Gold Semi Modular Power Supply

That thing is no good. Trust me. Get Corsair RM or RMX. If you can get RMX it is better. 650W or 750W PSU and then you wont be required to upgrade next time.
Also just wondering because i am not yet well informed around PSU's why do i need to change from a power supply the provides 750 watt to a one that does the same?

Quality and possibility of failure. If it goes down it will take down other components down with it and is nearly out of warranty. We recommend replacing PSU specially low tier ones within warranty period
just wondering because really my plan is to do a buy now pay later with ARIA PC because i dont earn much and would take the same amount of time to save but need an upgrade asap. Also i dont want to F up so im also going to pay for them to swap and install everything
