Looking to upgrade PC but what first?

Hey guys I am looking to upgrade my PC.

 

Here are my specs:

 

CPU - intel i7-7700k 4.2ghz

GPU - Nvidia EVGA GTX1080ti SC2 11GB

RAM - Corsair 16gb DDR4

PSU - Corsair TX550

MOTHERBOARD - Asus ROG Strix Z270H

CASE - Corsair Carbide 400

STORAGE - SSD - Samsung 250gb 960 EVO M.2 NVMe

STORAGE - HDD - Seagate 2TB ST2000DM006 SATA3

COOLING - iCUE H100i ELITE CAPELLIX liquid CPU cooler

WINDOWS 10 HOME

WIRELESS CARD

 

Before doing some online research I wanted to just upgrade my beloved 1080ti to something like the RTX4070ti super, I earn vouchers at work for Amazon and have been saving up and can afford just that, can I just upgrade that for now and then upgrade the rest one by one when I can afford. I will also be using Unreal Engine and some 3d software would this be fine to run?

 

Here are the upgrades I was thinking.

 

CPU - AMD Ryzen 7800X3D

GPU - RTX4070ti super

RAM - Corsair Vengeance RGB DDR5

PSU - MSI MPG A850G

MOTHERBOARD - ASUS ROG Strix B650e

STORAGE - M.2 WD BLACK

COOLING - iCUE H100i ELITE CAPELLIX liquid CPU cooler

 

Really appreciate your help!

I'd start with the SSD and PSU, yours won't hold a new build 

Then the GPU then the platform 

System : AMD R9  7950X3D CPU/ Asus ROG STRIX X670E-E board/ 2x32GB G-Skill Trident Z Neo 6000CL30 RAM ASUS TUF Gaming AMD Radeon RX 7900 XTX OC Edition GPU/ Phanteks P600S case /  Thermalright Peerless Assassin 120 cooler (with 2xArctic P12 Max fans) /  2TB WD SN850 NVme + 2TB Crucial T500  NVme  + 4TB Toshiba X300 HDD / Corsair RM850x PSU

Alienware AW3420DW 34" 120Hz 3440x1440p monitor / Logitech G915TKL keyboard (wireless) / Logitech G PRO X Superlight mouse / Audeze Maxwell headphones

Along with and in addition to what Pdifolco said, just get a B650 board, the B650E boards provide nothing extra currently and a 7800X3D can easily be air cooled or at least cooled with an AIO thats much cheaper and performs much better

System specs:

 

 

CPU: Ryzen 7 7800X3D [-30 PBO all core]

GPU: Sapphire AMD Radeon RX 7800 XT NITRO+ [1050mV, 2.8GHz core, 2.6Ghz mem]

Motherboard: MSI MAG B650 TOMAHAWK WIFI

RAM: G.Skill Trident Z5 NEO RGB 32GB 6000MHz CL32 DDR5

Storage: 2TB SN850X, 1TB SN850 w/ heatsink, 500GB P5 Plus (OS Storage)

Case: 5000D AIRFLOW

Cooler: Thermalright Frost Commander 140

PSU: Corsair RM850e

Ram brand doesnt matter and corsair seems to have kind of a bad reputation for xmps not working or something like that but im pretty sure its rare

 

Get the cheapest 6000c32/30 or 6400c32 (manually set 6000) and you are good

850w gf1 or core reactor (ii) should be cheaper and still retain a 10 year warranty, otherwise make sure its an a850g or a850gf and not the warrantyless gl, youll have to upgrade this first as your current psu simply doesnt have enough wattage

Complete waste of money

What i/o and features do you need?

 

Cause most ppl wont need anything better than a b650m hdv which has vrms capable of handling an oced 7950x, 14 usb a + 2 usb c, and ddr5 10000+ capabilities, also 2 slot so better for ram oc and you dont need to buy a 4 stick kit or buy dummy sticks to make rgb rams look good

I assume you are just reusing your cooler? No point swapping it out if it hasnt failed yet, just buy/request a new mounting kit for am5

 

If you wanna cooler swap anyways just get a thermalright 240/360 aio as theyre dirt cheap and performance doesnt matter that much on a 7800x3d that cant even dissipate its heat hampered even more by the horrible ihs design
