You’ll be better off going with the i7-8700k instead of the 7800x.    The 7800 does have quad channel ram vs dual on 8700k, but only certain applications will see much benefit.    The 7800x also has 28 pcie lanes for graphics cards, the 8700k having 16, but unless you’re going with tri-sli, 3x video card, then no benefit.   

The 8700k has better gaming performance and in general better performance because of its higher clock speeds.   Go with a 8700k build.

The gtx 1060 isn’t gonna give you Ultra gaming .   I’d recommend the gtx 1070 .

I would change the primary drive and cpu cooler, but without knowing your budget, not sure you’d want to spend the extra.
