If you're getting a K series processor than you need a z series motherboard. Z270 I believe for Coffee Lake. 8gb or 12gb ram is enough for gaming atm. That AIO is of questionable quality, get a good air cooler from Noctua or Be Quiet for about the same price. You need to get an SSD in this build, you put your operating system on the SSD to make everything feel snappier. You can also opt to put games on the SSD if you have space, this will make those games load faster.

 

I would say don't get the 8700k, its unnecessary for gaming and you can save a good bit of money. (seems you already realize you don't need an aftermarket cooler with the 8400, although you could to solve noise).

man where were you whhen i asked about ram, everyone stabbed me with "Get 16GB of RAM, 8 Is not enough"

Also i have an sss i forgot to say that in the build. And the aio may be questionable, but i put it just for looks. Id probably go with an air cooler like u said.

People who think more RAM correlates to better performance are showing their undeveloped knowledge regarding computers.

 

I will admit 8GB is getting outdated in a few games, but 12GB surely covers everything you would be playing right now.

im pretty sure theres no difference if u have 8 or 12 if thr game uses 4 and the system uses 2 but oks. Also what build sould i go for? the i7-8700K with the z370 mobo and my old 720p tv or the i5-8400 with a 1440P 144hz panel?

Some games use over 8GB of RAM. Not even a question, 8400 with 1440p panel.
