Great build. However, what monitor you got? Bit OTT for 1080p gaming if that's what you're aiming for

Don't EVER buy a prebuilt with liquid loops. I don't care how trusted Digital Storm is do not buy a prebuilt with water, damage could happen easily in shipping cards can come loose or break slots. ETC

What is your budget?
What aesthetics do you want? (color schemes, panels, LEDs)
What games will you be looking to play mainly.
Will you be overclocking?

Do you have a monitor?
Do you need a keyboard, mouse, or headphones/speakers?

I'm straight up new to PC gaming coming into 2017 i will be looking to set up a 3 screen monitor and will want to be playing games such as COD,BF,CSGO,DAYZ,ARMA ect... i want to be able to run most if not all games at the highest quality with out failure 3-4k is the max i want to spend if i can get something that can do all that at a cheaper price then I'm happy with that aha.
aesthetics id probably want to go a shiny black and neon light/blue colour or white and the neon blues, also are these PC's good enough to do your editing on like youtube videos if you're editing ?

"Exotic Custom Liquid Cooling"
Are they doing it in the Bahamas?

NVMe SSD is a waste if you're using the system for gaming, and maybe some light editing. PSU could be a G1 unit, which is trash, or it could be G2/G3 which are stellar quality. Or, it could be one of the Bronze rated units, some of which are fine, some of which are terrible. 32GB RAM is likely completely unnecessary for you. 7700k is baaad. Get a 6700k instead or go Ryzen. I do hope you're running at the very least 1440p with a GTX 1080Ti. Though it's better suited for 4k or 1440p 144Hz.
