Unless you're doing CAD work/programming/video editing you don't need an i7. Got you the best i5 (and best CPU for pure gaming right now) which is overclockable and I replaced it with a better cooler so you can still maintain good temperatures if you overclock.

I also replaced the 1070 with the 1080 since we had leftover from getting rid of an i7 which would be pointless in your case. Then, I replaced the PSU with one that has better capacitors.

For gaming, even at 1440p 144hz, this thing is a BEAST of a rig.

I like how AuraNightheart thinks, though you may as well go dual-channel RAM, and there's no reason to spend over $90 on a 650W Gold PSU. So I swapped those in/out, along with a less-costly-but-almost-as-good SSD and a higher-clocked 1080:
