I’ve recently purchased a used 2080ti evga black card, with a hybrid cooler installed for $800. I need to replace my 9 year old computer with newer parts beyond the video card. I play at 1440p, and found the below used computer locally for $450. Is this a good buy for my needs, or should I spend more money on a better cpu and faster ram?

Intel i5 8600K (overclocked to 4.8Ghz on all 6 cores)

AsRock Z370 Killer SLI/AC MB

16gb Corsair Vengeance DDR4 3000 ram

250GB Samsung 970 EVO NVME M.2 SSD (boot drive)

500gb Samsung 860 EVO 2.5" SATA SSD

1tb HGST 2.5" HDD

CoolerMaster M240L 240mm AIO cpu cooler

5 CoolerMaster 120mm RGB fans

2 CoolerMaster 120mm non RGB fans (front intake)

Seasonic Focus+ 550W 80+ Gold modular PSU

Phanteks P400 ATX mid tower case w/RGB strips

Windows 10 Home Edition, and registration key.

Seller says he just built a new machine and wants to get rid of the old parts. Obviously, the lack of a video card helps drop the price down.

If it's really what he says it is, it sounds like a decent deal to me. I don't know if I would pay more than $550-600 for it, but $450 sounds like a deal.
