This is more than enough for 1080p gaming. Especially dual monitors.

overkill for 1080p.  i would recommend an AMD build for value.  something like this:

CPU: Ryzen 5 3600X $209
Mobo: MSI B450 Tomahawk Max $125
System Memory: Patriot Viper Steel 16GB $135
Storage: ADATA XPG SX8200 Pro 1 TB M.2-2280 NVME SSD $140
Graphics: PowerColor Radeon RX 5700 XT 8GB Video Card $380
Case: Lian Li Lancool II Mesh ATX Mid Tower Case $80-90
PSU: hard to get these days due to supply issues so selection is bad.  this system will draw less than 500W but to be safe i'd recommend an 80-Plus Gold in the 700W range from a trusted brand. 

also, i believe all AMD procs still come with a boxed air cooler but if you need after market get a good cheap air cooler like the CoolerMaster 212 for 20-30 bucks.  unless you plan on serious overclocking than think about custom liquid cooling.  most of the AIO liquid coolers have comparable high end air cooling equivalents (i.e. from Noctua) at a similar price point. 



Aventum 3
I7-6700K
Gigabyte G1 Z170X Gaming GT
16GB Corsair Dominator 2800MHz
Corsair Hx1000i 1000W
Intel 750 400GB PCIE-NVMe
Samsung 850 EVO 1TB
2xSLI Asus GTX 980ti Strix
Windows 10Pro
