looks good. but you have the budget for a better mobo, especially one with beefier VRM heatsinks. You also may be able to find better price on a 1080ti, especially on the used market. Optional, but you have the budget to add an NVMe ssd instead of the sata III

Get a better monitor. You've got a mediocre 1080p 60Hz monitor paired with a 1080Ti. I would suggest either dropping the GPU down to like a 1070 to 1060 6GB or getting a better monitor that will allow you to take advantage of the GPU like a 144Hz+ 1080p monitor or 100Hz+ 1440p monitor.

I'd say replace the Seagate HDD with something else, such as Toshiba. I have a friend who has had nearly 10 Seagate drives fail on him, so I'd stay clear of that, just in case.

Am I getting an actually new card or is it just a rebrand? Find out here: http://linustechtips.com/main/topic/222806-what-rx-200-series-card-is-what-7000-series-card/

The more powerful i7-8700 would be a better choice of cpu if you are looking for longer useful life.

 

The G3 psu apparently has some issues and is louder than its competition. Consider instead a G2, Seasonic Focus Plus Gold, or Corsair RMx.

 

I'd also suggest a better monitor.

Not with the MSI Z270-A motherboard. But why are you considering an i7-7700?

If I went with a i7 8700 would it handle and would 32gb of ram be overkill or will it work well with 1080ti

Not sure what you are asking with respect to the i7-8700. The cpu has slightly better single core performance than the stock i7-7700k.

 

I would think that 16GB of memory is more than sufficient for gaming needs.
