I am trying to get this build down in price... as far as it will go. I love the current build but I am not sure if the build is optimized for power vs money. I would apprieciate any advice. It will be used for gaming and programming (python and java).

I am sure the CPU and the ram might be overkill, I am looking to build more for 1440p... I love the video card but again... might be overkill.

Thank you for any advice

Thank you... I love that it is all Amazon. Though, the monitor is a lot different and now I believe I have to add a wireless card

I just realized I put in a mouse and keyboard combo and a mouse. That can be changed. The point being you can still have a good gaming experience with out a mechanical keyboard. If you're okay not having it check out these bundles from corsair. Particulary the Starter bundle which has mouse, keyboard, headset, and mouse pad.

Honestly, I usually get a nice keyboard and end up with buying Walmart specials in bulk. I am hard on them lol.

A couple of small changes gives you the same performance for 300 less.

Really the i7 9700K should work fine.
