First time High Quality Gaming PC build

This is going to be my first PC build on my own. I am looking for feedback for my build. It is going to be Gaming oriented.
I am a huge gamer. (WoW, CoD, Battlefield, Skyrim, Fallout, Need for speed....etc...etc) I enjoy playing them all.
I am looking to play all the new graphically demanding games on the best graphics with ease.
I am NOT on a budget and I am not looking for anything micro.
Basically I am hoping to find out if everything is compatible and will work correctly.

Here is my list - https://pcpartpicker.com/user/PittmanLC93/saved/#view=bzD23C

Thank you to everyone who helps me out with this build!!

  1. - swap the cooler for a Cryorig H7
    - swap the PSU for something with higher quality as the current one is low grade 550W for single GPU, 750W if you're looking to SLI that 1070 in the future
    I suggest a Corsair RMx, an EVGA Supernova G2 / P2 / GS or a XFX XTR as those are really good high grade units

    Thank you very much for the feedback.
    I shall look into that in just a sec.
  3. also the case had known quality issues in the past. unsure it still does. you might wanna consider a Thermaltake F51 Suppressor. it's basically the same design but comes with good quality. I own it myself and am still in love.

    I appreciate the look over.
    Also, I am a little disappointed that the Thermaltake F51 Suppressor is a mid tower. I am going to look into the problems with the old case and weigh my options.
    I forgot to change my memory sticks in my link, but did so in this one. I didn't need the massive 16gb sticks.

  5. trust me it's no mid tower. it supports E-ATX boards and has basically the same dimension of the case you chose (20mm less in height, 17mm more in length)

    don't get 2 different RAM kits (if you didn't forgot to delete the old kit)
    if you can afford it, DDR4-2800/3000 is the sweet spot but it doesn't have that big of an impact.

    Overclock as you please, and add a second matching GTX 1080 in SLI when / if you need more graphics power. For Office, check out the Office 365 subscriptions Microsoft offers. Also, unless you are putting your computer on a domain (think small business / active directory), then Windows Home will have the same features...

    it's a nice build however the Seasonic X Series is known for producing some strange noises

    Wow, that looks like a great build! Thank you both for the input.
    The second storage is great, but I would like to stick to SSD if possible, also I am a fan of Corsair, so I just swapped the G.Skill Ripjaws 4 Series 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR4-3000 Memory with Corsair Vengeance LPX 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR4-3000 Memory.
    I will look into the power supply a little more because Silent but Deadly is how I want my PC. :)
  9. I do have to ask Though; Why the Asus GeForce GTX 1080 8GB TURBO Video Card ?
  10. totally missed that. don't get the Turbo. it's a blower style card which is kind of a waste in a full tower case.
