Hi White69tiger....The Bolt config looks good to me.

My only suggestion is to select the Windows CD and partition under Recovery Tools.   If your drive dies, you'll have the CD to fall back on.

If the monitor is 1080p or 1440p then the gtx 1080 works.   A 4K monitor would want a 1080 Ti card.

Good luck.

Should work just fine.    For a 1080p display, the gtx 1070 will max out games.   It would save you some money.    In 2-3 years you might want to upgrade to whatever has come out by then anyways.   Just a thought.

Think im going to pull the trigger on this build 1633289 later today unless theres something i can do to improve build?......thankyou bprat22 for helping switching from 1080 to 1070 graphics card saved some cash thats always helpful even more so if anything over a 1070 is redundant for 1080p monitor.


is it worth maybe upgrading to stage 1 cpu overclock?

My pleasure.      

Unless you pick the stage 3 overclock to potentially 5.0 then I would save the money.   The Kaby Lake 7700k Turbos to 4.5 anyways, so all is good.

Stay in touch with your progress.
