Thoughts on this build for 4k

Zero point in a Pro 950, you don't need a 850 watt PSU. You don't need 32GB of RAM and its a huge waste of money. Do you really need a Bluray drive? I would get a i5 6600K, on a 60Hz screen you really won't notice the difference and especially if you overclock which I am assuming you are doing. I'm highly doubting you need all of that room the case offers.

It has two GTX 1080's. Faster RAM and a much bigger SSD.

certain parts are overkill. this is a better gaming build. still has the i7 and blu ray drive. don't know if you actually need those.

man shop around on Amazon. 4k monitors at 60hz with low response times are available all day for half that or less.
