New to pc but want a high end gaming pc

I have picked some parts that I think will be be good for 1440p which is what u would like to play at.  I am open to any suggestions on parts that should or could be changed for cheaper or better performance.  I want this pc to last for as long as possible so that I won’t have to spend more in say a year. 
thanks in advance.

i plan on playing rdr2, ark, r6, wreckfest, modern warfare, and some new games when they come out.

 

The parts:

Ryzen 9 3900x, asus tuf x-570 plus WiFi, asus tuf gt501, kraken x72, Corsair rm750x, Oloy Warhawk 32gb at 3600mhz, asus rog strix 2080ti, xpg sx8200 pro 2tb, seagate barracuda 2tb(just in case), and for the monitor the Acer predator xb27hu

An r9 is overkill for just gaming, an Ryzen 7 3700X is more than enough. You won’t see a noticeable performance difference. Also 32gb is also overkill for gaming, 16gb is enough. Otherwise the build looks good.

Everything becomes outdated eventually. If you don’t need the extra 4 cores, 8 threads then you’re better of with a 3700X. The time difference from when the Ryzen 7 will becomes outdated and the Ryzen 9 most likely will be less than a year. Is it really worth the extra $200? The ram can be upgraded easily at any time, is it worth spending an extra $100 for ram you may not need for years?

Another thing I wanted to add: The Ryzen 7 3700X is slightly slower than an Intel Core i9 9900K, so hopefully that puts things into perspective for OP.
