It's not required at all. I only have 16GB and don't have any performance issues.

You could get 32GB now for future proofing (way in the future) but IMO its a better choice to just go with 16GB now and put the saved money towards the GPU. You can always upgrade to 32GB later down the road.

I thought about something like this: 27" LG UltraGear 27GL850-B | WQHD, IPS, 144Hz.



And yes, that's not included in the ~2000? (of course not)
Great choice, I just got the 34" ultrawide version and its awesome.

I'd definitely go with the 3080 (or AMD equivalent - 6800XT) if you're using 1440 or above resolution with high refresh rate. It will give good performance overhead.

Agree with this as well. 5600X is plenty good enough even with less cores. Although, might need to settle with whatever is available.
