If you want to get the best out of your gaming rig, at 1440p 144hz, to play demanding games in ultra setting and maintaining higher FPS you would need to trim your build to accommodate a GTX 1080 TI (or the new RTX cards, for which benchmarks are expected soon - RTX 2080 if it proves its worth).

Here's how I would play it:

  • also removed the AIO as the stock cooler will work very nicely and if you plan on overclocking you can always add an AIO later.

  • You were quite specific with your budget at $2222 - lol. If you're planning on saving all games to the HD (which is great as SSDs do not improve gaming performance) you can opt for a 250GB SSD which is more than sufficient for the Operating system and applications (plenty of headroom in the bag for future-proofing)

32GB RAM is wayyyyy overkill for gaming. 16GB is "more than sufficient". You can easily play demanding games in 8GB too whereas 16GB is only merely recommended for the overall system performance (multi-tasking, background processes, etc etc)

Wheres the GPU? :(

You don't need an 8-core CPU for gaming (no benefits for gaming). The 2600X (6-core) will do the job beautifully, plus its single/quad cores are FASTERRR for added gaming performance compared to the 2700.

Plus you don't need liquid cooling for any Ryzen in a mid tower case. If you want to do it for the aesthetics, that's fine, but you don't need it. The 2600X and 2700X have decent stock coolers. The 2600 (non-X) stock cooler is just OK and I'd probably put a better cooler on it. (Cryorig H7 or one of the smaller Noctuas or Scythes.)
