Biggest question that needs to be answered, is whats the purpose for building this rig?

Good point, gaming, video consumption etc.

Do you plan to play at 4k or 1080p max resolution? What kind of games are you planning on playing? Whole system seems to be a bit overkill if you're going to just be watching videos and gaming.

I'll be purchasing a 1440p 144hz monitor and as for games, battlefield 5 (if it's good), fortnite, pubg and any other future game that looks cool also will be doing some mild overclocking. I refined the list btw.

If you're going to be running 1440p then everything looks fine the 1080 will be perfect for that.

okay thank you just found out that there is a $437 duty fee along with that shipping fee on newegg, so'll have to buy from other places man New Zealand sucks.
