Maybe an additional 2TB or 4TB HDD or for mass storage if you don't have something already.

 

Otherwise, pretty solid :)

You don't need 850W for a i7-7700K and a GTX 1080Ti unless you plan to SLI (and even then, that's still more than you need). 550W is good enough.

 

Wait for Coffee Lake.

I disagree on the PSU, pushing it close to the limit ignores the efficiency curve and overclocking headroom + expandability going forward.

my FX9370 (220w) @ 5ghz and 1.536vcore with a overclocked GTX 1070 @+100mhz GPU and +100mem and all sliders to max, barely break 450 watts at the wall on a EVGA SuperNova 850 G. The fan is barely turning. Your 850 is fine, slight overkill.

Well even tho Coffee Lake is announced on the 5th Oktober it will still take some time before its in the stores. And i dont really have time to wait 2 months for parts :P If its amazing i can always change MB/CPU next year when Coffee Lake x comes :)

You can heavily overclock the i7-7700K and GTX 1080Ti and it still wouldn't get close to 550W. You still have a good amount of headroom with a 550W unit. As for expandability, that only really becomes an issue with adding another card for a Crossfire/SLI configuration... which I doubt OP is doing anytime soon.

 

With a higher wattage PSU, you lose efficiency at lower loads and they're often louder in comparison to lower wattage variants. Not much point in going overkill.

It probably will be a paper launch but buying Kaby Lake now is a bad idea anyway, given how close Coffee Lake is.

Sure, you can build now and have it all set up. The i7-7700K is still the best gaming CPU on the market.

 

All I'm saying is that given the timing of the situation, you're better off having a bit of patience and should wait for Coffee Lake which is just around the corner. I also think it's more going to be a month wait, rather than two months.

Nobody likes the word future proof, but I like future proofing my psu. Crazy expensive, just once. Then it lasts for almost any build you'll do for a long time. To me, a psu is not something you should be buying each time you build a new pc

Shipping sucks

Wattage isn't everything... high wattage units don't necessarily mean that you're being "future-proof".

 

If you want a "future-proof" unit that'll last for ages, then buy a high quality unit.

That's what I was trying to say. I don't know where I said or implied wattage, I wasn't answering in the context of the question but as a comment to what you said

Oh... well, I thought you were saying that as to justify why one should get a 850W unit over a 550W unit.

 

My bad.

Lets not turn this into a fight over how big a power supply i need please.  When asking for help i thinking more of " Should i replace any of the stock fans", or  "Hey did you consider this MB".  The difference on price over a 550 and 850 PSU is not gonna brake the bank on this build :P

Well, that's how you know there's little to complain about. We're always going to find something to argue about. So might as well be something minor. 

Anyway. You can save quite a few bucks if you went with a nice SATA drive, rather than the 960 Evo. You won't see any difference in real world use. Unless you transfer lots of files. 

I'd say the PSU is overkill. Even if you plan on getting another 980 Ti to run in SLI, 750W Is enough. Even when overclocked. There are also other really good 750-850W PSUs for less than $130. 

If you don't plan on adding another GPU to run in SLI, you could get a 550-650W PSU.

But can it run Crysis?

 

Kidding. Build looks good. I agree with the more storage idea. Beyond that, there's literally nothing this build can't do. Except maybe server applications, but this isn't a server build. 

Everything I know I learned from the internet. Also school.

I think that 1TB M.2 SSD isn't really necessary as well as an 800 dollar monitor, so you could save money on that and use it for something else. As for RGB, since you are using the NZXT Kraken, replace the Aer P's on the radiators with Aer RGB's and use Aer RGB's for case fans as well and connect them to the Hue+

Well a good monitor isn't always cheap :P 

Feel free to recommend a cheaper 144 hz or more with G sync monitor tho.

You spent almost 1/3 of your budget on a monitor, you could SLI the 1080 for 800 bucks xD 

Suggestions:

You could go with the 144Hz version of the ROG Swift for 150 bucks cheaper.
Or go with Dell - S2716DG 27.0" 2560x1440 144Hz Monitor which is 500 bucks.
