Hi i'm new to forum but would like your advice. This isn't my first build but my last build was i5 750 built back in 2008 when in college on tight budget and slowly been upgraded over time.
Now i want build new computer while salvaging some stuff from old build but this doesn't have a budget as long as the parts make sense.
Monitor
I'm leaning towards 3 x Asus ROG Swift PG278Q 27" because it ticks all boxes for a gaming monitor at 27" but i do not like the price tag as find it quite cheeky where not paying the $700 dollars equivalent. Also i know IPS is all the rave and 144hz is disputed whether makes difference, but i am coming from a normal 60hz TN panel. Since the PG278Q not out yet i'm still open to suggestions of alternative monitors.

Now this is what i've picked out sticking with red and black theme due to monitor
