Optinions and advice on mid/high-end gaming rig replacement

Budget (including currency):  around 4000 CHF (~$4100)

Country: Switzerland

Games, programs or workloads that it will be used for: Mid- to highend gaming and some cpu heavy programming

Other details

Current setup: I7-4790k, GTX970, RM750(power supply) in a random full-tower case and 2x 27" screens.

Because hardware is actually available right now I've decided to upgrade my rig - properly.

My current list, missing power supply and case:

ASUS ROG-STRIX-RTX3080-O12G-GAMING,HDMI,DP,Aktiv,12 GB
1269.–
Intel Core i7-12700K,LGA 1700, 3.60 GHz, 12 -Core
435.–
Kingston FURY Beast,2 x 16GB, DDR5-6000, DIMM 288 pin
256.–
Samsung 980 Pro,2000 GB, M.2 2280
249.–
ASUS ROG STRIX Z690-E GAMING WIFI,LGA 1700, Intel Z690 (DDR5), ATX
530.–

LG UltraGear 34GN850-B,3440 x 1440 Pixels, 34 "
841.–

 

Now I would like some advice/optinions on the following:

Finding a screen was the most difficult part so far. Opinions on the LG UltraGear? alternatives should be at least "2k" and around 30", G-Sync and at least 140hz.

The 3080 - should I go TI? Not wanting to spend the cash for a 3090, but I wonder if I should go 3080 TI ROG Strix for example.

Power supply Corsair 850 or 1000? Or seasonic (I have no experience with them)?

DDR5 Really?

Case Full-tower recommendations welcome, I don't need eye-candy and may also just re-use my old case.

 

Then I will probably re-use the NHD-15 cooler from my current setup where it's not really needed. I don't plan on watercooling anything.

 

Thanks for any techtips!

PSU brands don't mean much, actual models are what matter. Corsair RMx is a good choice as is Seasonic Focus GX. Corsair RM and HX along with Seasonic Focus PX are good alternatives. 

 

If you are considering an RTX 3080 Ti, a 1000W PSU would be a good choice.

80+ ratings certify electrical efficiency. Not quality.

1. for the screen, can u try to get the Alienware QD OLED display ?? it has much better picture quality, its 2k and around the same price. It also has Gsync and is more than 140 HZ. Im linking the US site. see if u can find it in ur country https://www.dell.com/en-us/shop/alienware-34-curved-qd-oled-gaming-monitor-aw3423dw/apd/210-bcye/monitors-monitor-accessories

2. if u have the budget to spend, yes go for the 3080TI as long as it is within CHF 200 of the 3080. otherwise, its not worth it. 

3. go for 1000Watt PSU

4. if u like being an early adopter, yes. otherwise no. but keep in mind that if u dont go DDR5 now and wanna upgrade RAM in the future, u will have to change out ur motherboard too

5. Lian Li's o-11 Dynamic Evo and XL, Phanteks Enthoo Pro, corsair 5000D airflow.

Reused your NH-D cooler. Hard to say what monitor would be best, much more subjective that pure PC specs. I don't feel like there's a need to spend more than 3000euro. Euro because PCPartpicker has no Switzerland so I just picked Germany as closest market:
