You don't need an i7 to run this build. What is it for mainly? What kind of performance do you want?

My thinking behind having an i7 is because I intend to a lot of gaming, video editing and such. I also want to be able to expand in the future (e.g. adding another video card, etc.)

i7 isn't meant for gaming, it's meant for faster processing, which barely affects gaming. Video editing really only needs a bit of ram and a decent processor, unless you have a triple monitor setup with 7+ programs going at once. Also, you don't need another graphics card unless you want to go 4k or VR. And even then, you would really only need one GTX 1080 unless you're doing multi monitor or ultra settings on basically everything. What is your current setup? Or is this your first build?

Okay, thank you. This is not my first build, I have built two setups in the past that where pretty low budget. I think I will adjust it accordingly then.
