    Looks good and compatible, but that i5 is not good value at the moment. It is also falling short in certain games due to its limited number of threads. Also instead of spending so much on other parts, you should crank up the cpu first and get a 7700k instead.

    But I strongly suggest that you wait for a month or so as Intel is coming up with their more powerful next gen. processors around the same price, but with more cores and threads. When it comes, get the 8700k and it will not only perform better but will also last longer.
  2. If it wasn't for the mining craziness that has driven the GTX 1070 prices up at the moment, I would switch the GTX 1080 to a GTX 1070 and use the saved money for the I7-7700K instead. Obviously i would also consider what Hellfire13 said and wait for the new 8th gen CPU.
  3. I would switch out the CPU and use the ryzen 5 1600x instead with the asus strip B350-f mobo. (Cooler doesn't really matters). Hope I could help you.

    Yeah it's kind of a bad time to be buying a GPU since Vega was just released and Volta should be any time now, this is one time where I would wait and see what Volta is going to bring.
