This will be my first gaming build. Can anyone look through the list to see if there is any problem with my build? Your opinion will be greatly appreciated... I don't want to mess up my first build :(

Budget is $1,600

Your motherboard is overpriced, overkill on the power supply and for the 8700K get a better cooler.

You also need to add 2 X 140mm fans for the front of the case.

I was deciding between the Gigabyte and MSI, I guess that answered my question as well.
