I have a 1700x. And I want to buy a X470 taichi motherboard (not taichi ultimate) for it. Because I have a future plan. In the future I will buy and use a 2700X in this board. Is it a good decision or not? please suggest me. You can suggest another board with good vrm and stable bios for it. Thanks in advance.........

Others parts are:

GPU = MSI GeForce GTX 1070Ti GAMING 8G, 8GB GDDR5, PCIE x16 3.0
RAM= G.SKILL Flare X (for AMD) 8X2=16GB 3200BUS DDR4 RAM
AIO cooler= CORSAIR HYDRO SERIES H115i AIO Liquid CPU Cooler, 280mm Radiator

I'd get new boxed to avoid RMA troublesome, all X470 mobos out there are good VRM design for light OC not LN2 OC, the matter of how efficient each VRM would be another work-around involving how you configure 'em. For gaming focused build, I recommend let Ryzen Master utility decides optimal OC state and keep out motherboard OC utility played by, read mobo's manual carefully before you update BIOS.

Since this is an expensive build, consider power protection (surge protection, decent UPS) on your shopping list

It's a good MB but a bit on expensive side, other one to consider https://www.asus.com/Motherboards/ROG-CROSSHAIR-VII-HERO/ but if you don't want/need all he features Asus Prime x470 Pro is doing great job for me for lower price.
