Solved Is this build strong enough for 60fps 4k gaming?

Specs: Windows 10
So, I am looking to build my first 4k gaming pc and I need to know if everything I picked out hardware wise will work together to create a comfortable 4k gaming experience. Just a disclaimer I am a complete noob to this so please do not be to harsh. haha

Here are the specs of the pc I wish to build.
Case - Rosewill ATX CULLINAN (the one with the tempered glass panels)
CPU - Intel Core i7 6700K, 4.00 GHz Unlocked Quad Core, Socket LGA 1151
Motherboard - ASUS PRIME Z270-A LGA1151
GPU - Nvidia Geforce GTX 1080 Ti
RAM Kingston Technology HyperX FURY Black 32 GB Kit DDR4 (2 16gb)
Storage - Crucial MX300 1TB SATA 2.5 Inch Internal Solid State Drive (1tb)
CPU fan - Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO RR-212E-20PK-R2 CPU Cooler with 120mm PWM Fan
Power Supply - Corsair - CX Series Modular CX750M 750W ATX Power Supply - Black
Monitor - LG 27UD58-B 27-Inch 4K UHD IPS Monitor with FreeSync

I feel like this is a lot to ask but thanks to anyone in advance!!

✔ Best Answer
I do not see any problem with it. Other opinions may follow.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

I am not a gamer so I may be off on this, but that monitor has a 5ms response time. I thought that is slow for gaming. Do you need 4k with a 27" screen?

I don't need a 27", but because other people online said that text is very small on anything smaller than 27" I found one that was decent. I would gladly go for a smaller size to save money as long as it has at least a good refresh rate. I don't know about response time but I'm assuming quicker is better.

What I meant was you are choosing a monitor with a 3840x2160 resolution. I am wondering if that is overkill with that size screen. Most 27" monitors are 1920 x 1080. I would think that 2560 x 1440 would be a good compromise on resolution.

Response time is important in gaming, especially. There are other 4k ISP monitors with slightly faster 4ms response times.

IMO IPS is a good technology but you do sacrifice the response time. Other screen types can get down to as low as 1ms response time.

Perhaps someone that DOES play games can comment on my thoughts.

I did find a 23.6 inch ASUS MG24UQ. I am looking for 4k and this monitor is 4k. It also has a 4ms response time. Also a 40-60hz refresh time.

My question is why do you think 4k is necessary with a 24" or 27" monitor. 60" TV is a different story.

I am not saying it is a bad idea. I am just wondering if it isn't overkill with those sizes.

See some of the articles linked below for other points of view.

I agree with OtheHill. With a large screen, a 4K resolution will produce a more realistic image, but on a small screen, it's kind of a waste. And a 27" screen is "small". Also, be aware the the technocrats that define screen resolution pulled a switcheroo when it came to 4K. Previous resolutions (480p, 720p, 1080p) are based on the number of horizontal lines on a screen. When UHD (4K) was developed, they changed to the number of vertical lines. If they had stuck to horizontal, UHD would actually be 2160p which is closer to 2K, but that doesn't sound as good. IMO, unless your monitor is over 40", 4K is probably unnecessary.
