New Gaming Rig (Help required)

Hi,currently really new into building Gaming Rigs and my friend referred these specs to me:
*I7-7700
*GA-H270 Gaming 3
*16Gb DDR4
*antec 700w psu
*R9 380 4GB
*Corsair H115i cpu cooler
*k380 Cooler Master Mid tower
*240GB ssd
*1 Terabyte Hard drive

I'm mainly interested in whether this build has a significant bottleneck or not and any other performance issue such as cooling and if I can get a consistent 60fps in my performance with Games such as Dark souls 3 etc.
(Note: The OS will be Win 10)

  1. Best answer
    Some less than ideal choices in that build, although it would help if we knew where you were buying from for the prices reference say with the GPU.

    CPU > Very strong for Gaming and other tasks, but a lot of the budget in this build, GPU should be more focused for Gaming.
    MOBO > Unless it has features you want/need, you could save cash by dropping to a nice B250 board.
    RAM > A good amount for modern Gaming, but what kit are we talking here?
    PSU > I assume this is the Antec VP-700? If so, not an ideal choice. Look into the SeaSonic S12-II Series or Corsair CXM Series for a budget.
    GPU > Good for 1080p Gaming, but how much is it? A new generation GPU could be the better choice unless you found a great deal on the 380.
    Storage > Fine choices.
    Case > Comes down to preference.
    Cooler > Way overkill for a locked build, a stock cooler would do fine but if you really want good temps a cheap air cooler like the Cyrorig H7 or Cooler Master EVO 212X would be more than plenty for this build, a Corsair H115i is quite high end and a waste of money for this CPU.

    Hope this helps :)
