Gaming PC future proof for 5 years (GPU excl)

After careful planning, I'd like to share my build plan. 
I'm currently living in the Philippines and want to build something that will last a long time, maybe just upgrading the GPU & CPU after 5 years.  

My budget is around PHP 70,000 and would like to play games at 1440P with decent frame rates. 

There are quite a few power interruptions here, hence a good PSU is needed and am also looking for a decent UPS for this build. 

Also, should I use an AVR (automatic voltage regulator) with my PC and is a 500W AVR okay with this build? 
Comments are most welcome.

don't convert your budget to any other currency than your country's, it just makes things misleading for others.

That's not 5 years futureproof. Throw more cash on the CPU and GPU, especially for playing on 1440p.

Also, 500W UPS with AVR (I guess that's some 900-1000 VA unit) is not enough for a system like that.

You'd want at least 600W because the UPS has to hold the PC and the monitor too, and the PSU draws more power from the wall than the components do. And you don't want to over-stress your UPS so the UPS should have at least 30% more than the PC can draw from it.

I wouldn't get the 970 EVO, I'd stick to SATA ssd's as NVMe doesn't provide a benefit outside of certain uses.

 

You can go with a 550w PSU to save money.
