you might want to consider a 850W PSU. With Neweggs PSU calculator, you're at ~670W so if you can afford the extra PSU it might be worth it for future upgrades.

Id say, if you can, just hold out for a bit and see what nVidia have coming.
Chances are it wont be a huge gain over 1080ti, so i probably wont upgrade, but if i was starting now i would be interested in the newer GPU's on the horizon.

Also I would go with a more compatible/faster memory for the Ryzen.

G.SKILL Flare X Series 16GB (2 x 8GB) 288-Pin DDR4 SDRAM DDR4 3200
(PC4 25600) AMD X370 / B350 Memory (Desktop Memory) Model F4-3200C14D-16GFX

It's abit more pricey, but it would be worth it. I also am on a Ryzen 1700, with a Taichi MB, etc.

I really should update my signature someday soon.:o

Sig now updated. LOL.

And if you're waiting to see what might be coming for GPU's there's nothing to lose by waiting to see what AMD are bringing to the table next month with the next line of Ryzen CPU's.

True i guess.
