Upgrading my pc

Alright so I got a few good deals on black friday and just went for it. I bought a ryzen 7 2700(non x), asus rog strix x470-f gaming, samsung 970 evo m.2 ssd and 16gb G.skill trident z 3200mhz cl16 ram. That came on a total of 815$. Those parts would normally cost 990$ 
I got an asus rog strix gtx 1080 and a deepcool captain 360ex to pair this with already. 
So im gonna be using this computer for gaming only and at 1440p resolution. Ive looked at a number of benchmarks and the 1080p results are giving me cold feet about ryzen, even tho I know at 1440p ryzen delivers close to the same as the top intel chips. 
If I were to go for an intel build, i'd get a i9 9900k (i7 8700k costs more than an i7 9700k in norway and at point id rather just get the i9), the gigabyte z390 aorus master + ssd and ram. Which would cost around 1400$.. 
Money isn't really a problem but I still like to get a good value of whatever im buying. So heres my options:

  • Keep what I bought (maybe change the ram to g.skill flarex 3200mhz cl14?)
  • Buy the intel build for the small loan of 1400$ 
  • Refund and wait till next year (currently using an i5 3570k @4.4ghz on an asus maximus formula v) 

Sincerely most indecisive guy ever...

at 1440p might as well stay with Ryzen

 

dont bother to change memory, unless it's cheap to do so (within $50)

I think that you should keep what you are buying. Amds are good and their prices much better than intel's. I think that you will have a great system with this setup. I personally use a ryzen 5 1600 and it is great. 

PC: 

Ryzen 5 2600

Corsair Vengance lpx 16gb 8x2

Mobo: AsRock X570 Pro-4

Graphics: MSI Radeon rx 580

Storage: Sandisk 240gb SSD

              Seagate Barracuda 1TB

PSU: EVGA 600B

Case: NZXT h500i

The ryzen 2700 is great. You would also need to change the mobo so it would be a hassle to switch to Intel. The ryzen is perfectly capable but may bottleneck your GPU a little bit
