I’ve never seen that CPU cooler, is it good?

It's listed as a 120w TDP cooler, so it should be good.

Thanks for the reply man, a few questions though. How long do pc parts stay "up to date" or "relevant". For example if i want to buy these parts a few weeks from now or a month or so, will theses builds still hold true or is part technology progressing faster than that?

To answer your question instead of just giving you a open interpretation of the situation... Zen (Ryzen 1xxx CPUs came out in the 2nd half 2017, come approx. march of 2019 we are getting Zen+; Ryzen 2xxx series).

DDR3 ram came out in 2007, DDR4 came out 2014.

GTX 1080 was released may 2016 and GTX 2080 is rumored to release Q3 of 2018 but could be a while for all we know.

So the answer to your question, realistically you can expect your parts to be "in date" for 4-5 years then you probably can expect your stuff to gradually be replaced.

I build my first rig in 2012, it didnt hold up for this long due to how much i really put into it, if you go cheap, you'll replace faster more than likely, but it also really depends on the parts you are getting.

Edit* Stuff like RAM (potentially), Motherboard, SSD, HDD, Case, Fans can stay in date for quite sometime but often times its the CPU GPU

https://pcpartpicker.com/user/Vineuro/saved/6zmsJx This will crush anything you throw at it. You can also go for a cheaper 1060 or rx580 but the 1070 is a way better card.

With a pc like that maybe 4 to 5 years with some minor upgrades.
