Hi,

I am looking to build a high end gaming RIG. After a lot of research, I have selected the following hardware and need advice on whether all the parts compliment the overall build:

Processor i7 - 7700k
Motherboard MB ASUS PRIME Z270 - A
Graphics Card GTX - 1080 ti
RAM RIPJAW DDR4 16GB 2400 MHZ
SSD M.2 Pro 512GB
HDD Any 2TB
Power Crosshair - RM - 750w
Monitor ASUS Designo Curve MX34VQ - 34"

Appreciate any advice I can get,

Thanks

A lot of graphics cards are low stock/no stock/back ordered at the moment due to the crypto-mining fad. When you submit your order, I suggest you get iron-clad verification by calling in that your chosen graphics card is available to you. NCIX's real time stock checker can be pretty flaky for some items.

You will need a case and heatsink.
RM from corsair is not good, unless you meant RMx. Which is fine.
You can also go with the EVGA G3 650w. Which is plenty to OC with.

You might consider going with a 2TB 2.5" ssd instead of the M.2 and HDD. Simplifies the storage scheme and likely improves overall performance.

You might consider faster memory. A number of recent titles have shown modest performance improvements with DDR4-3000 and DDR4-3200 memory.

You are going to need a case and CPU cooler. I'd suggest something like a AIO cooler, air coolers will work fine, but if you are planning on overclocking, you should get a AIO cooler. As for a case, you'll need to find one that suits your taste, also you might need to consider buying additional fans depending on the case you choose.

Other additional things you could get are sleeved cables and RGB LED strips, since you are making a high end gaming rig, i would suggest these for aesthetics.

Stephanos you do not need AIO to OC.
Air cooling is more than capable to OC with, by adding lower noise and less chance for pump/leak failures.

I was going for RM but just checked RMx and I can see that would be the right option.

Case + Heatsink already part of the plan. Thanks for your advice!!

That is true in some cases that air cooling can give the same or better performance than AIO. But if you are going with a high end rig, a chunky heatsink could just block the PCI lanes. As for pump and leak failures, I had no problems using AIO for the past years and it doesn't look like leakage would be a problem. For noise, AIO coolers can be just as quiet as air cooling if not quieter. I'm not looking to argue here, but i would like to defend myself.
