Could someone tell me if my parts are compatible?

What features besides compatibility with the 8700K are important? RGB lighting? WIFI? Form factor? pcpartpicker.com can allow you to compare COMPATIBLE products. I would recommend you spend some time "playing" on that site.

I’m not looked for many features maybe just vr combatability. Not really bothered with rgb. And I couldn’t see some parts on pc part picker. So would the cryorig h5 be good for my needs?

the h5 is not strong enough if you ever want to play around with maxing overclocking the cpu, but will function properly if you run it stock or mild OC

get the r1 ultimate if you dont want it to be the limiting factor


you dont need a 850w power supply, drop down to the 650w model, it will have plenty of headroom

I would go with the asrock Z370 Extreme4

drop down to a good 550w power supply


if you dont intend to overclock then no point in anything bigger


you should also get the i7 8700 NON "k" and use the stock cooler

and what fps would this pc run on 1080p or 4k on lets say GTA V?

the 1080 is not really a 4k card

you want at least a gtx 1080 ti for that


at 1080p the gtx 1080 can easily damn near max out gta with over 60 fps ( you will need to turn off/lower some advanced settings )

and as i am new to this is there anything that would make this run better for gaming? i only have a budget of around 2000 euro. i think that's round about 2450$. like is there anything on my list that makes another component overkill or bottleneck
