I'm going to build a pc for mostly gaming and rendering.
This is it.

Should I change somethings for better Performance? I only have 1800 dollar budget and that's pushing it. I can add 200 dollars next month if needed. Is the ram type good? (I will add another 8gb ram later) Cooling system? Motherboard? The monitor is temporary. Please help I'm still a beginner at this.
 


1. B
etter aircoolers available for the money. No need for a watercooler in that build due to ample room unless it's for the looks
2. Get the ram you want/need now. Adding ram is a gamble mix and matching ram even if it's the exact same can result in it not working togheter. Only kits are made to work togheter for sure (there can still sometimes be an error but thats a minimal chance)
3. Cooler comes with thermal paste so not needed
4 Whats more important to you gaming or rendering? If gaming get the 8700k if rendering get the ryzen 2700 if 50/50 get the ryzen 2700(x).
5. Do you actually need a dvd drive?

Have you looked at the nzxt h440/fractal design r5 cases? Those are really sleek and focus on quiet operation.

This seems like a sound build, except for a few details here and there.

First of all, I wouldn't personally go for this AIO cooler and instead for a high-end air cooler(such as the Cryorig H7), as it will most likely perform better. But this of course isn't going to make or break your build, just make sure they fit in your case.

Secondly, I wouldn't skim on the RAM in your initial build, any less than 16gb wouldn't do your system justice. Additionally,
I would want to opt for a higher quality RAM set that runs at (a minimum of) 2666MHz, because it will complement your CPU better.

Lastly, your PSU is great. A 650W PSU of this quality should suffice should you want to cut on cost. However, the 750W gives you some breathing room, which makes it a sound choice as well.

In short, your build is fine and will work well. At a budget of 1800 dollars, however, I would tweak some things.
 
If I have $2000 (OC 1070ti to 1080 stock level):

If you're going to get a GTX 1080, you might also want to go for a 144Hz screen for 1080p, since that setup should be able to maintain frame rates that are well over 75 fps in most games. Or maybe go with 1440p resolution.
