Hi, so finally i'm going to buy a new rig and my question is does that parts will work good together and do you recommend to change something?
List of parts:
Motherboard MSI Z370 GAMING PLUS
Processor i7-8700k
Graphic card MSI GeForce GTX 1060 6G
Memory Corsair Vengeance LPX 2x8GB DDR4 3000MHz
Power supply Corsair RM750x 750W
CPU cooler Corsair CW-9060025-WW Hydro Series
SSD Corsair Force LE200 240GB
HDD Seagate Barracuda 4TB
Case Corsair Carbide 400C
My budget is around 1500-1600$

Okay First off putting the list in something like pcpartpicker helps a ton with checking possible issues with compatibility, I've gone ahead and put all the parts into a list here: https://uk.pcpartpicker.com/list/PnCkfH

From here I can see that your going to have a lot of power left over by being under 400W and could go cheaper with that while then ending up getting more RAM space or speed as the motherboard supports up to 64GB and 4000. The price of the system from the site which I would take as an average price to high ends up being about $1556 (I know it says £1158.99 I converted it) so you do have budget space left over especially if you hunt correctly for places that sell the parts cheaply while not being scam like and giving a somewhat warranty maybe.

Finally I don't know if you realized that the CPU fan you choose is too big for the back panel of the case where it normally goes, but it does fit as I found an reddit post showing someone's build with an similar case if not the exact same.

(https://www.reddit.com/r/Corsair/commen ... v2_cooler/) (http://i.imgur.com/ZwWQ3pP.jpg) it's wayyy to big to post just follow the link

I presume as well I don't need to warn you about being careful with installation of the cooler since it's liquid and tight turns could make the pipes break easier.

Also I would get another SSD to store games on it as the 240GB is good for having your operating system it but not games due to size. This goes for the HDD as it has space but not the speed as SSD's are generally the same price as HDD's for the same size if not better. Though HDD is better for stuff that you don't need loading up fast is a good use for it if it's going to be written to a lot. But yeah seems pretty decent for me as you have plenty of upgrade room later.
Oh I have an arma unit which is meant for messing around and be serious when required, here's some links:

In the next year i'm gonna change graphic and get some more RAM soo thats why i was aiming for 750W but if you that ther will be that much power left i will go for 600W then.
Also normally i would went for SSD but i need a lot of space for my side-work.

You really don't need to change the card.....if your going to be changing it in any case next year then I would say go bargain bin hunting for like 960 or something as you'd buy a graphics card and expect to have it for a few years not one....it's really a waste in my opinion especially as going down from the 1060 to the last card is nearly halving the price and your graphics performance difference isn't all that much at all....for more info on this I would say look towards the end of this video.

This also kinda goes for the RAM as well if your going to replace current RAM and not just fill up the other two slots left over but those you shouldn't need to replace for even longer as well in my opinion as for my computer I only needed graphics card and storage upgrades to keep gaming until the bottleneck was the CPU. That was after 7+ years of gaming constantly (got it for Battlefied 3 as was pre-built for it), admittedly the requirements may start spiking but prices will drop as more updated stuff comes out and builds upon previous parts.

Oh, one other thing.

If you think you dont want the hassle of building from scratch, have a local vendor put together a bare-bones system, and then you can buy the components you want and put them in yourself.
