It will probably work fine if you aren't overclocking, but I'd be tempted to go for a higher rated PSU if it were me.

 

Have you looked around to see if you can find a 1070 Ti for a similar price?  Its quite a bit faster (especially overclocked) if you can.

 

I would get something 802.11ac for WiFi, 2.4Ghz is really slow by todays standards and prone to tons of interference.  I get 30Mbit on a good day, 1Mbit on a bad one.  On 802.11ac however I consistently get 300Mbit in the same room and if my router wasn't getting a bit old I should get twice that.


Router: i5-7200U appliance running pfSense.
ISP: Zen Unlimited Fibre 2 (66Mbit) + Plusnet Unlimited Fibre Extra. (56Mbit)

Without knowing what you'll use it for, it's hard to say too much. 

 

Instead of getting an expensive case, and compromising a lot other places, get a cheaper case and decent parts for the rest of the PC. 

Faster RAM will improve the performance. The brand won't. 

Using an NVMe drive as a boot drive is a waste of money. For the boot drive, use a cheaper, but good, SATA based SSD. 

Swap the PSU for a decent one. Focus 450W, Formula 450W, Whisper M 450W, Straight Power 11 450W, RM550x 2018, RM550x, as a few examples. 

Don't know the price of the cooler, but if the M9i or Pure Rock Slim cost less, get one of those. 

Instead of WiFi, use ethernet or a powerline system.

I think the hoomans put their builds here?

Why do you hoomans give your builds a name? Here's my build, which I shall call "Do as I Say, Not As I Do" (seriously, don't get this build)

Intel Core i3 6100U

4GB (probably) DDR4 2133 MHz

Get a better psu. Like an EVGA gq or a Corsair TX series or something similar

 

I thought a better PSU would be a good idea,  Thank you!

For just gaming? 

Then drop the NVMe drive all together, and drop the CPU to the 8400. Upgrade the GPU to the 1070 Ti. Alternatively the 1080, which performs ~5% better than the 1070 Ti. You'll have to do the maths yourself to figure out if it's worth it over the 1070 Ti (as in literally finding out if the price/performance gets better). 

For the 8400, the stock cooler should be fine. You can add a better cooler later, if you find it to be too annoying.

Good thought, but might be worthless if their router doesn't support 801.11ac or 5ghz band. You should check what your router is compatible with first. Also 5ghz has its own issues such as poor penetration/deflection and range.

MOBO: ASUS Prime Z370-P

CPU: Intel 6 Core I7 8700 (3.2GHz) 12MB Cache

Z370 motherboards are for overclocking. The non 'k' i7 8700 is not overclockable, so a Z370 motherboard may not be required. It will still work regardless, but you may just be spending more than you need to for features you can't use if you're not buying an overclockable 'k' series CPU. Either pair the i7 8700 with a less expensive Intel H370/B360 motherboard, or pair the Z370 motherboard with an overclockable 8600k or 8700k CPU.

 

And @seon123 has already beat me to the rest. Everything he's mentioned is good advice.


CPU: Intel i7 6700k  | Motherboard: Gigabyte Z170x Gaming 5 | RAM: 2x8GB 3000MHz G.Skill Ripjaws 5 | GPU: Gigabyte Aorus GTX 1080ti | PSU: Corsair RM750x (2018) | Case: BeQuiet SilentBase 800 | Cooler: Corsair H100i AIO | SSD: Samsung 970 Evo 500GB + Samsung 840 500GB | HDD: Seagate Ironwolf 8TB + 2x Seagate Ironwolf 6TB | Monitor: Acer Predator XB271HU + Samsung BX2450

Also consider if the RTX 2070 might be in your price range.  If so, might be better waiting to see how it performs in real-world tests before spending any money.
