I'm building my first PC its for gaming So far all I have bought is the case I want this pc to be able to play but its important that it can record games like ARK, Rust ,GTA Will it be able to upgrade to a 1080ti later without needing to replace anything else ? Water cooling scares me so went with air cooling but will I need more fans? Are any of these parts just wrong ? also I'll be picking up a htc vive at some point I'd like to have anything I need for that now rather than later. I'm looking to keep it around this budget.

A z170 motherboard so you can overclock, you do not need that much ram, a selection of better coolers, a ssd and better psu.

Not really, do you plan on rendering?

Basically, the differences are:

  • You can overclock

  • Can use faster ram

  • Better heat dissipation

  • Cleaner power delivery

  • One faster x16 pcie port and one more x1 pcie port

Overclocking is not hard, you can do so with this motherboard and a cooler.

If you truly do not wish to overclock, you can save some money by not buying a cooler, getting the non k cpu and a less expensive motherboard.

Please tell me you're going to use a SSD along with your HDD.

SSD's are so much faster than physical disks. If you got a decent sized one you could put your OS on it, and maybe a few games. With my SSD I can have Windows loaded in less than 5 seconds. If you're going as high end as you are, definitely look at an SSD.
