oem cpu,

comes with no cooler,but you get an aftermarket anyway.
for cooler would i pick this,

The i7 is an option though.Could even look at the non "K" i7 8700 and use MCE to let all cores run 4.2ghz.

Ryzen 2 is about to launch in march afaik,so maybe good to wait for that,hard to say what that has as improvements for gaming. Maybe that they even get better ram compatibility with those,who knows.

Admirable
You're getting a lot of overpriced pieces, geez!
I didn't really lower much the costs, instead got a much better system for a bit less.
With a brand new CoffeeLake CPU(which has +2 cores and +4 more threads), a GTX 1080, which is the appropriate GPU for 1440p 144Hz gaming and a proper CPU cooler for that future overclock
