I currently have a 1080 144hz monitor, but happy to upgrade to a 1440 if this build looks decent enough (which is why that monitor is in there just as a template really, guessing there are better ones elsewhere). I was torn about whether to get an Intel i9 as that's what I've had previously but through googling have heard good things about the 7 7800X3D so threw that in this build. Not sure if the extra case fans are necessary or not? Budget wise I wouldn't really want to spend anything more than this unless it's a major upgrade from what's here! :)

I'll be using the PC for regular gaming and some VR gaming. Along with potential streaming and video editing/rendering. I was torn about the 4080 but I want something that will last without a need to upgrade for a good few years. Hopefully I haven't missed any details here, apologies if i have! In no major rush to purchase a new PC as mine is doing the job for now, just interested in upgrading in the near future.

Thank you in advance! :)
