Why not go for a different case, one that you can see inside of it?

Man you should definitely consider using the NZXT S340 Elite case!
Best case I've ever had the pleasure of working with and using!!

No reason to make it look nice inside if you cant see it

Alright, first of all, I don't like to recommend waiting but if it were me, I'd wait a little bit to start buying stuff. It looks like RAM prices and GPU prices are starting to come down, so even if we don't see next gen GPU's soon, you could potentially save quite a chunk of money.

Made some adjustments to your parts list as well, just in case you do decide to buy now;

Air cooled GPU if you'd prefer that instead of the Hybrid cooler 1080Ti I included;

May aswell go with the 8700k and a Z370 board when the 7700k and board you posted is more expensive... Then with the savings bump the evo to a 500GB model. You can also save some money by getting cheaper RAM and a much cheaper PSU.

There is no reason to do a build from only one site when the prices are inflated, use PCPartPicker as it finds the cheapest price for that part from many suppliers. It will also allow for your post to be more presentable too.
