Best Processor & GPU to run Cities: Skylines?

I am building my first gaming PC and most of the titles I want to run seem to be able to get away with relatively modest parts. However, I want to run Cities: Skylines at high settings at 60fps consistently. What would be the best CPU and GPU to achieve this?

Budget?

You'll need to give us a budget, because right now I'd say two titan xp cards and a 6900k would fit your needs

Also, what resolution? 1920x1080? 2560x1440? Etc. As others stated, budget is required as well.

Like the others pointed out, a budget is pretty much required here ad keep in mind that this game is more cpu bound than GPU bound so your resolution might also allow to lower the cost of the GPU.

I'd like to run it on an ultrawide 1440p monitor. Budgetwise, I'm expecting a relatively large budget (3000 or more).

In which currency?

Maybe I can give you some indicators: Cities Skylines is a pretty heavily CPU intensive game, and doesn't pull that much from the GPU (unless you have thousands of mod assets at the same time). An FX-83XX will beat an i3 because of it's good multi-core scaling, but an intel CPU might be preferable at higher budgets (only because AMD doesn't have high-level consumer grade CPUs).
