Final Pick?

So I'm building my first computer and I'm kinda new at this. I'll be using this rig mostly for gaming, internet browser (streaming, etc) and watching movies. I may do some content creation but the likelihood of that happening soon is pretty low, although I might try it for a bit. (Nothing fancy just SFM) I'm not going to buy all the parts at once instead wait after each paycheck and order a part, saving the sensitive ones (GPU and CPU) close to the end. 1. Budget & Location $US 2,500

 

I already got a case its the stryker SE by cooler master. 

The Optical Drive is for when I want to watch my blue ray movies.

Why an optical drive?

That cooler for the 8700k is ehhhh, you'd be better off spending $20 more and getting the be quiet dark rock pro 4, or if you really want watercooling, the cosair h100i v2. Also, that mobo cannot handle the 8700k, especially if you plan on ocing. GetIf you need more money to fit that, drop the gpu to a 2070, you can easily find a cheaper psu with the same tier and rating as the one you have now, and why an optical drive?

Well, this is my first build and I'm trying to find the right parts but it a little overwhelming. I'm trying to build something that will last me a long time without any upgrades.

well, this should do just fine for most uses for the next years. and if you do want to upgrade in for example 3 years, you can do so. For Intel the maximum you can get on a z370 or z390 board is a 9900k, which already need a more expensive mobo. AMD will suport the socket untill 2020, so I would choose that. But on that build you can overclock, have a cooler that is as good as the one you selected for less, the ram doesn't really matter between these two, the ssd and hdd are good, this 2080 is imo better and cheaper as I like evga more, a higher effecienty psu for less, and windows and office keys can be bought for 15 bucks on the gray market. that's why I selected this. tho the 2600 is a little weaker than the 8700k, but that's what you get when you get a chip that's litterally half the cost

Okay I'm not going to OC, and i'll change the cooler. Which Mobo would you think is best.

z390 gigabyte boards are the best you can get, together with the asrock taichi (ultimate). msi and asus can be skipped for z390

for z370 I didn't watch it that well, but I can normally see from pictures how good the board is

Here is what I got now.

(I've already got the case and the monitor I will get later expecting a big check to come and I will use that to pay for the monitor)
