Tips Review

1. Don't get a Z270 board if you have a locked CPU.

2. I would personally get a WD Black instead of the Seagate drive, but both are fine AFAIK.

3. If you have 2 monitors at different refresh rates, both will run at the lower refresh rate IIRC. Keep that in mind.

4. If you do stick with the Z270 board, get a 1070 and 7700k instead of the 1080 and 7700.

^ What he said

 

however, the WD Black isn't really needed at all unless you need really speedy performance

two monitors at different Hz will be able to run at different refresh rates IIRC

1080 + 7700 + B250 board >>> 1070 + 7700K + Z270 board.

 

also, that PSU is okay, but you can get much better for the same price.

I guess it is fine but i feel that you can get anbetter case or cheaper because

 

what thing are you going to put in it?

New PC Build

 

Tell me what you think of it, and if any improvements could be made.

Get a B250 or H270 motherboard since the i7-7700 is locked.

 

Consider less expensive memory. On Intel platforms memory speeds over 2400 don't really improve general use or (most) game performance.

 

There are better psu in the same price range. The Seasonic G-series 650W or EVGA G2 550W are two examples.

 

You might consider getting two identical or same size monitors. 

80+ ratings certify electrical efficiency. Not quality.
