Build Review - AMD CPU/4080 Super

Greetings! Looking to get this build reviewed. Would love to hear thoughts. 

I’m not confident on the motherboard so would like suggestions. As for the GPU, I was going to go with the 4070 Super due to cost/efficiency, but the 4080 Super just has better longevity. Also could not really decide on a case. I prefer function over form, but I’m good with some that has a slick look to it (sleek looking, not gaudy). 

Budget is around $3000, I’d be happy if it was lower. I’ll need to snag a good 1440p monitor as well. OLEDs are great but likely out of budget. 

I never know what games all be playing, so just looking for something that will play my old stuff ramped up and any new stuff on the horizon. Thanks in advance!
