Budget (including currency): USD 2000

Country: India

Games, programs or workloads that it will be used for: Running VMs for programming and data crunching workload and video games

Other details (existing parts lists, whether any peripherals are needed, what you're upgrading from, when you're going to buy, what resolution and refresh rate you want to play at, etc): 

Upgrading from a FX-8350 system that's starting to show it's age and not able to handle the increasing workload.

Planning on upgrading to a 21:9 1440p monitor. Typically 100 or 144Hz refresh rate.

I'll use my existing Vega 64 for a while before upgrading to a 3080 in a couple of months.

I've got a Corsair HX1000i PSU, case and storage devices so I don't need any of those.

 

Any advice is appreciated about this config.

If rgb is important you might consider one of the Asus aio. They are decent and support aura sync, but a bit expensive.

 

You might also want to consider an Asus gpu for its aura sync support.

80+ ratings certify electrical efficiency. Not quality.

RGB is absolutely not important. In fact I try to minimize distracting lights as much as I can.

Then I would suggest a different aio. Consider something like a Dark Rock Pro 4 or NH-D15.

 

You may also want different memory modules.

Those are the ones I found with a basic search. I'll look into the aio and memory you suggested.
