Coffee lake build - Looking for build assistance

Other than the cpu cooler, a good list. You might check out the Cryorig H7. If you want better overclocking potential an aio like the Corsair H100i v2 would be good.

Hey there, all you folks! I’m trying to build a pc that will offer great performance in games, video rendering and that will have a solid upgrade path for the future. My budget is somewhere around the 1000-1500$ mark but i’m trying to stay around 1300$. 

 

This is what i personally think is the best option for me based on the current market prices. [Inserts image]

 

would appreciate some advice on my planned build!

80+ ratings certify electrical efficiency. Not quality.

If you want a really good upgrade path for the future, go Ryzen and AM4. If you're set on Coffee Lake, I agree with @brob

At this point, I would advise waiting until zen+. Unless of course the rig is needed as soon as possible.

Still Ryzen and AM4 if what AMD says about supporting the AM4 socket is true, but yes.

Needless to say, coffee lake won’t stay relevant for long? And if so, is it still worth buying?

Depends what you mean by relevant. Will there be new CPUs released for it? Probably not.
Will the CPU you're getting last you for many years? Yes, it will.

 

Unless you plan on upgrading every year, I wouldn't worry about it.
