My first ever build.

Sigi

Hi,

 

I have been planning my first build for a very long time. Today I thought it is finally time to pull the trigger. I have made a part list:
 

 I wondered if all the parts are compatible and if there is something you strongly recommend changing (I already own the case). I live in a country were pc parts are not very available so a part you recommend might not be available (for example there are almost no z370 motherboards and no gtx 1080s). I will be using this build for mainly gaming esports titles at 240 hz but also some productivity. My budget is 1900$ but keep it well under that as the prices are higher in my country.

Thank you for any responses.

You could probably get similar cooling for less money with a Be Quiet Dark Rock Pro 4 CPU cooler, and the 1070 is obsolete and out of stock/overpriced now, especially that one. Go for either a 1660 Ti or 2060 if you want that level of performance for less money or a 2070 if you want more performance for the same price. I would suggest not using Dominator Platinum RAM, it's not worth the price premium. If you don't need an NVMe drive for a specific reason, e.g. you do a lot of rendering or moving very large files, you'll probably get a better experience out of a larger SATA SSD.

¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Might be helpful to know the country and the budget in the local currency. 

The OPs list is for the US.
