Hello there!

I'm creating my list for next month purchase, and I would like to get some feedback on the parts, would you swap anything?

List:
MSI 1080Ti Founders Edition(Evga Hybrid)
16GB Corsair RGB Pro 3200Mhz
MSI x470 Gaming Pro
Amd Ryzen 7 3700x
1TB samsung SSD 550Mps Write/Read
Nzxt Kraken x42
Corsair TX650M
Samsung CRG5 Curved 240Hz G-Sync
 
Do you have a 1000/2000 series Ryzen to flash the BIOS to a June/July version supporting the 3000 series CPUs? (Or so you know someone with one that might let you borrow it, unless your MB is one of the extreme few that supports BIOS reflash with no CPU installed...)

It's a 7 3700x, should I just get a more recent motherboard then? Would that be easier?

Im assuming the 1080ti is used? They dont make em anymore.

Make sure the ram is 2x8gb rather than 1x16gb.

Other than that looks fine.
The 1080TI is used yes, and it it's 2 sticks
 

Does it work

Commendable

470 boards are genuinely well made and we know they work (570 can be little iffy still, and they are a huge price jump), usually, if you ask the seller they will update the bios for you, depending on who it is, its usually between free-$10 if they do it. And as the other fella said, take the intel 660p, sata or nvme is up to you, the nvme is a bit more, but it does perform better (roughly 4x the read/write), and depending on exactly which 1TB samsung SSD 550Mps Write/Read may even be a few dollars cheaper.

Here is a bench example of my nvme vs ssd (note the nvme was under load during bench, and ssd is under-performing, probably because just cheap sata cables from random chinese vendor/ pretty sure may have a right angle bend in the wire, which may be affecting data rates, so its about 75% of its normal speed)

Note the nvme speeds are ranging between roughly x2 and 7.5x
