Not sure if these price tags are useful, I am from India and all this totals to around 1350$

What the PC is going to be for - It is going to be primarily for Gaming and Photo/Video Editing, Content Creation

Budget - 1600-1800$ for the whole setup including monitors, microphone, webcam, keyboard and mouse

Purchase date - hopefully this week, after I get my exam results

I am in a monitor dilemma, confused if I should go for a 27-inch 1440p 180hz flat or 32-inch 4k 144hz curved one.

I am here to seek advice on my build and end my FOMO of what monitors, microphone, webcam, keyboard and mouse I should buy?

I'm an RGB fan and like cool things :)

I am not sure what the performance of a 7900GRE is at 4k, I have a 7900XT that runs a 32inhch 1440p screen and I easily get over 200 FPS in most game. It can depend on the type of game you play as to what refresh rate you will get. I would be looking at 1440p - probably easily do 180

Not sure you would be able to get that 144 in 4k. Its more the range a XTX works in.
