Recently I created a build mainly for gaming but also for all around use. It would be great if you could give me some suggestions. Thanks

Very good! I recommend a Corsair cooler for the liquid cooler, but yours is fine as well. Also, I'd remove that kinguin windows oem key before the PCP staff get mad at you. Personally, I'd go with the 1070 Strix at that price, but again, that's just me. Overall, this should suit you well for pretty much anything you want to do.

Sale of software and keys from that site often violates the ToS or are resold licenses purchased via fraudulent credit card. Recommending, suggesting, advising, encouraging, hinting, or in any way implying these keys as a solution or option is not allowed on this site.

okay thanks for telling me. I had not realized that these keys were illegal. I will take it off my parts list immediately.

The monitor doesn't make any sense at all... But the rest looks good.

If that's the monitor you're running, you can build a computer that can handle 1080p @60fps for half of that.

This was an old monitor. What monitor do you suggest I get?

I would go with something like this minimum. Otherwise you're not getting any benefit out of the parts you have paid extra money for.
