Can I get some help planning my computer build?

Hey,

I was wondering if anyone could help me plan a build. I have my heart set on a i7-7700k and a variant of a GTX 1080 ti.  My question is what motherboard and any other part would be able to support both a i7-7700k and a GTX 1080 ti. 

Thanks!

 

Edit:  I completely forgot about the 8700k.

do you have any of these parts already. how much would the 7700k cost? is it new or second hand? do you have a budget? does that include a keyboard, mouse, wireless solution or monitor? what are you going to do with your system? have you looked into 1070 ti?

a Z170 mobo with updated BIOS, or Z270 mobo can do that. The main problem is that buying 7700k is dumb when you don't have a mobo for it. 8600k is both faster and cheaper than 7700k, even if it's new CPU vs used CPU. Z370 mobos cost about the same as Z270 mobo when both are used or new. Z370 also lets you upgrade to 9th gen CPUs as well.

Asrock Z370 K6 is what I usually recommend

That's a good point I forgot the 8700k. 

And the i7-9700K?

80+ ratings certify electrical efficiency. Not quality.
