    8700k is better than 7700k and will last you longer.
    32gb of RAM is overkill for gaming even on ultra settings. There is no way you can use that much.
    You wont find any difference in performance between Samsung 960 Evo and Pro in gaming.
    SLI support is not good for all games and not recommended. One single bigger card will give you consistent performance across all games.

    The higher priced component doesnt always have the best value. Your build has been optimized for maximum performance...

    Would this graphics card be ok https://www.amazon.com/ROG-STRIX-GTX1080TI-O11G-GAMING-GeForce-DisplayPort-Overclocked-Graphics/dp/B06XXZBPHZ/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1507574305&sr=8-2&keywords=Geforce%2Bgtx%2B1080ti&th=1
    Also about the CPU cooler, it's height is 168.3mm and the maximum supported CPU cooler height is 170mm in the Corsair Crystal 570X case, will that still fit taking into account the motherboard and such.

  3. That card is fine, you can get it if you want.
    PCPP is pretty accurate, and if there would have been incompatibility between case and cooler, it would have flagged it. You can speak to Corsair customer support once just to be sure before purchase. I have never built in that case so cannot confirm confidently. It should fit ideally.
