Why.

What do you need your PC for and what monitor resolution/refresh rate?

What is your budget/country for your new PC?

 

what monitor resolution/refresh rate?

 

What games or other software do you need to run?

Why only EVGA branded PSUs? The G3 is loud and has issues with its protections, the P2 often has complaints about fan noise. 

And neither of them have multi rail.

What country?

 

a far cheaper R5 2600 is fine for gaming, if not the 8700K is a better buy than the 9900K in general.

 

Vega 56 is fine for 1440p gaming, as is the 1070ti/1080

 

or just buy a used 1080ti

 

The monitor you'll likely end up with is a 1440p 144hz IPS free-sync display, as G-sync is a waste of money.

The RMx is currently well priced. There's also the Whisper M. 

The RMx has a longer warranty, the Whisper M has multi rail and a better fan.

Then just for reference that's what a perfectly fine 1440p 144hz PC looks like

As for your PSU question Focus Gold is the way to go

That's the monitor to buy basically.

People who value protection and safety.

And the higher the wattage, the more important multiple 12v rails are.

Can you explain your reasoning?

If my graphics card short circuits, there is nothing else that will save it (and cables) from burning/starting a fire other than multi-rail OCP. No matter how high quality the PSU is otherwise.

I'm going to suppose you didn't say that as  it is completely false
