Looking into building a new gaming pc

I'm looking for help on building a new gaming pc, but I need to be able to record and play games on it at the same time. I have picked out the rest of my build but I was wondering if a 850w power supply is overkill for my pc. Also I was wondering if I should get a GTX 1070 or GTX 1080

    Looks awesome. I think the only way to make it better would be to add a red led strip
  9. You can match the parts in the list add find red and white parts for your build like the ram, cpu cooler ect let me know if you need anything else
