Personally I would go with the i7 8700k as it has better single and Quad core performance and therefore will be better for gaming. However, the 2400x will be better for a more mixed workload. If it is strictly gaming I would go for the i7-8700k. If your firend won't be overclocking the card I would go for the i7-8700 non-unlokced CPU as you can pick one up on Newegg for $305

Why ATX?

A mid ATX should just be fine, unless you need to have 2 NVME, dual GPU etc.

Mid ATX case will save some space and compact.

ok well here is the new i7 build

-snip-

Looks pretty good to me! In my opinion I would go with a motherboard that suits your needs. no need to buy an expensive Z370 mobo If you aren't going to be overclocking. That's just my thoughts on that. Good luck and happy building!

The main reason for an atx motherboard is the upgradability as I want to give my friend a chance if he wants nvme ssds and who knows maybe a dual gpu later down the road the idea of the build is to last a long time.
