the build: https://pcpartpicker.com/user/mido_505/saved/w37G3C

i'd picked almost everything except the monitor, I'll be gaming most of the time, idk if I should get 1080p or 1440p for this build?

is there any improvement should i do on the other parts?
any help is appreciated :)  thx in advance :)

Do you have a budget? And I would really like to tweak the build too if you don't mind.

EDIT: Will you only game only?

Get 8gb of ram, and I'd say go for 1080p for ultra gam,ing for a long time, 780ti's and r9 290x's are the only ones that are quite smooth on 1440p I think, the 780 is good at 1440p also, but you can game at higher fps on 1080p for longer oh and get a caviar blue instead

This build is $200 cheaper excluding the monitor compared to your original build. I chose a 1440p monitor.

I know it is similar like I said but it is cheaper in the end when the monitor is excluded.

And yes current games don't even utilise the full 8GB. So you will have more than enough.
