I'm new to pc gaming and I'm looking to run current AAA titles at max settings, resolutions over 1080p at a steady 60fps and was looking for some advice. The build i have picked out is a Gamemax draco rgb case, i7-7700k (No overclocking), corsair cx750 power supply, coolmaster hyper 212 processor cooler, 16gb corsair vengeance ddr4 2400mhz ram, asus prime z270k motherboard, gtx 1080ti plus one 250gb ssd and a 2tb hdd. Would this get the results im looking for or is it not enough or even too much?

If you don't want to OC, go i7 8700 + B360 or something instead. Cheaper and better. 

 

Also, since you're going for a more expensive build, I would get a PSU a bit more premium. What's your total budget?

Make sure to quote me or tag me when responding to me, or I might not know you replied! Examples:

That will do 1080p, 1440p and 4k at 60 fps, but like @DocSwag, I'd recommend an i7 8700 if you aren't overclocking, with a b360 motherboard and a better psu definitely.

Perfect, I would definitely recommend the build list I posted.  You could knock down the price like £40 if you wanted a cheaper cooler, but the 8700 will most likely still get warm with turbo boost. Since you have the money to spend, would you want to get an unlocked processor (the 8700k) and a z370 motherboard just for the performance, or would you rather save £100?

If you have any aesthetics you would like (e.g. more RGB, certain color scheme, etc.) I could definitely make some changes to suite that.

I would probably save the money for 4k monitor in the future if the basic processor will do the job
