Better connectivity in z390. Better value for money in 1080ti.

There seems to be a compatibility issue with that build.
"The motherboard M.2 slot #1 shares bandwidth with a SATA 6.0 Gb/s port. When the M.2 slot is populated, one SATA 6.0 Gb/s port is disabled."
 
The build is compatible, all the parts will work together, the SATA issue is a common one and usually it doesn't effect ports 1 and 2, but, as Lucky_SLS says, just ignore the deactivated port, Windows won't care which ports you connect drives to and will assign drive letters to each connected drive as usual.

What content will you be creating and what software will you use?
What gaming will you do and what is the display you'll be gaming on?
In some cases a Ryzen build will offer a better all round solution providing: Your content creation software can fully use multiple cores and threads and you'll be gaming at 2K rez or higher; Intel is still king at high refresh HD gaming but the gap between them and AMD narrows significantly once you move beyond HD resolutions.


Your build with a few tiny tweaks:

Single SSD, cheaper, but still quality PSU BIG air cooler.
Note, unless you're after the very highest gaming or playing a very long game, you could swap the RTX2080 for a GTX1080Ti and save a significant amount of cash.

The content I will be creating will just be heavily focus on my streaming. I also will be video editing. Well I am not sure what programs I will be using. Not yet that is. I am going to focus on the mainstream games for now, for my streaming. And a few other games that won't involve too much hassle. But most of my games are multiplayer focused. I am switching out my monitor from 2560 x 1080 to 1920 x 1080.
 
@ Clvnngyn: Well, I can't see any reason to consider pursuing a Ryzen build, your choice of a HD display ( hopefully a very fast one ) means Intel is the best way forwards for you and the i7 8700K isn't exactly a slug for streaming of video editing either.
There's nothing wrong with your build, nothing at all, so if you want to go that way, that's fine, and the build posted by Lucky_SLS is also a good one.
Here's my take on the build:

Big air cooler, similar or better performance to the Corsair H100i without the potential issues of an AIO ( leaks, potential pump failure ) but not everyone likes a big cooler cluttering up the build interior.
The Pro Carbon Mb has better OC features and VRMs than the more mid range Asus Prime 'boards.
kept the 1Tb SSD, despite the reviews PCI-E NVMe drives aren't that much faster for us normal mortals than SATA ones, we just don't shift enough data to justify the increased cost.
Moved to a GTX1080Ti, right now the RTX cards are just stupidly overpriced, scarce and at 1080 rez really don't offer enough over a GTX1080Ti to justify the cost, even worse, applying raytracing seems to be a new way to really, savagely hammer the frame rate. Oh, and I have the Aorus card, the stock cooler may be big but it's absurdly effective and quiet with it.
