Hahaha yeah PC Part picker is better for checking compatability. Dont even know if it fits in the case etc.. Just bored looking at parts.
What would you go with if building for 2.5k?
Could swap out the i7 for a i5 and spend the extra couple of hundred to swap the 1070 for the 1080. Also maybe a bit overkill on the water coolent if your not overclocking.
The Case is always a hard one to suggest to people cause everyone has their own taste in what look they are going for. Im really digging the full glass looking cases at the moment!
Maybe something like this?
Just did a quick list but with some more thought you can drop the price down a bit more on some components, thats about $3000 though but includes GTX 1080 Ti, 250 GB M.2 NVMe SSD and the new 8th Gen Intel i5 which is 6 cores 6 threads @ 3.6 GHz compared to the i7 7700k which is 4 cores 8 threads @ 4.2 GHz...more than enough for gaming.
To drop the price down to $2500 you can go with a slightly cheaper motherboard but you'd have to give up some features like M.2 and USB Type C etc - can also go with a cheaper and smaller SSD drive and then upgrade later or add another SSD later, maybe even drop the RAM down to just 8GB and add another 8GB later.
The case is hard to recommend like you said everyone has different tastes, I'm currently using this https://www.computer...=p&partid=27705
