    Good part selection overall. Should be a solid build. But you can do a few tweaks here and there.
    The major thing is, Intel is coming up with 8700k next month which is more powerful. So you should wait for that. You can also go for a similar AMD Ryzen build which should be cheaper.

    Thanks, I am probably gonna wait till around Cyber Monday to start buying everything so I will definitely check out the 8700k. I don't know a lot about AMD, is it as reliable and powerful as Intel?

  3. When the 8700k comes out it will be more powerful than all other main stream cpu's AMD or Intel, specially for gaming, which I am assuming is the purpose of your build.
    If that is not your intent for the build, then for heavily multi threaded work, you should look towards Ryzen 7 or ThreadRipper.
