hi i'm building my first pc.
i'm 80% sure that this build is compatible except for the g skill ram. on amazon(https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B01MTDEYHU/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o03_s01?ie=UTF8&psc=1) it says "Chipset: Intel Z270 Platform / Intel Z170 Platform CPU: Kaby Lake (LGA 1151) / Skylake (LGA 1151)"
i have a z370 chipset motherboard. but when you go onto the g skill site it says that the ram is compatible with z370 motherboards. overall i don't have a clue about the ram. but if there are any of the other parts which don't go together please let me know and it would be nice if you suggest a replacement of similar performance and price.
any help is appreciated thanks! :)
The build mostly looks fine. The only change I would make is to either go to 16GB RAM using 2x8GB sticks or go with 2x4GB sticks for 8GB. The Core i7-7700K uses dual channel memory so you'll lose half of your memory bandwidth using a single stick. As for AMD vs Intel, ideally you'll want an Intel system as they have higher IPC performance which is important for gaming. However, as most games are GPU limited rather than CPU limited, I'd recommend picking up that 2x8GB or 2x4GB kit of memory over an Intel platform if you're limited on funds.
Hope that helps!
