Ill be ordering the parts for a custom pc build in the next day or two after everything is finalized. I did a build on pc part picker and was wondering if you guys can give a few tips or suggestions on how to make it better or more efficient. I am mostly going to be playing fortnite and want high frame rate. Also, I would be playing games like cod and gta 5 on high graphics and want it to run smoothly. I will also be brewing the web and live streaming on twitch and youtube. Let me know what i can do better on the build. Thanks a lot

Really the only thing that I changed was your graphics card. I put a 1080 at a higher core/boost clock than your 1070 Ti for like 20ish dollars more if you are willing to spend a tad more for a little more performance. Everything else looks great. Good build.

Your budget has gone from $1300 to $2k, back down to $1400 and is now $2k again?

Don't get a 7700k. Kaby Lake makes no sense. Go with Coffee Lake or Ryzen. Don't buy a Corsair H60, 120/140mm AIO's are trash tbh. That case is absolute garbage lmfao, and $70 is a ridiculous price for it.

In the middle of the several budgets you have given. You can save some money by dropping to a GTX 1070, and/or 8GB RAM. You could spend a bit more for a better case/PSU if you really wanted. If you want to overclock, spend a bit more for an 8600k and Z370 motherboard or go with a Ryzen 5 2600 and AM4(B350 or B450/X470) motherboard. You'll also want faster RAM with Ryzen though, ideally 3000/3200MHz.
