Hey i have a question, i've never build a pc or even owned a pc before. Recently i've started looking for a good pc build and came across some sites where i could build my own pc, assembly included. I've finally made a pc build that i am kinda happy with, but i don't know if there is any overkill or bottlenecking. So i thought why not ask some who does know.
In the build i've added two monitors, because i wondered if my build is compatible with those monitors and if you'd recommend them.
I don't know if the games i play are of any help, but i'm planning on playing a lot of shooters and maybe some open world games.

Thanks in advance :)
BTW if there are any terrible mistakes in my english please excuse me, it's not my first language.
 
Maybe wait for 3070—much better performance, much lower price at launch time. Currently out of stock though, I haven't kept track of the drama after launch.
two monitors
I've used 2 for 20 years, find it very difficult to be productive whenever I'm forced to one-only. So go for it if you use the PC for general purposes. If it's only for gaming, then may be a waste as there are very few games which are designed to use a second—only one I've played is Supreme Commander. Check out Multi-Monitor Gaming

For compatibility, compare the outputs from your video card to the inputs on your monitors—it's very probable they'll match, but make sure.

If you're going to be competitive multi-player FPS, then you'll probably need a monitor. I single-play Far Cry & similar and 2 TVs work fine for me—a lot more screen space for your $. Check out TV for Gaming.

I don't know enough about recent hardware to comment on the rest of your build—good luck with it!

Thanks a lot for your quick response!
I wasn't planning on buying both of the monitors, i just want one of them, might have been a little unclear, so sorry about that.
And i'll look more into those tv's for gaming and i might find something better than those monitors.
I think i'll stick with monitors for shooter games, but i'll definitely look into it.

As for the GPU i think it would be smart to wait for the new RTX 30 series, hadn't thought about that before so thanks for that too! :)

The plot has thickened :) AMD have announced cards launching in November which *appear* to match—or more—the new nVidias. If you can, wait at least a month for comparison reviews of physical cards—altho you will have to wait even longer for stock to be generally available outside eBay.
