i7-7700k + GTX 1080 Ti + a Monitor for under 1800?

Is that possible?
I don't need keyboard or mouse.
Windows 10 required. Already have HDD.
Prefer an SSD and 16 GB of RAM as well.

Hmm, there's a couple things I want to know real quick cause as you can see, it's overbudget by $100 (Not including tax, shipping, and rebates).

  1. Why a 7700k? What are you planning on doing with it? A build like this might be possible with ryzen, or even a 7600k.
  2. What resolution for the monitor? I'm guessing you're going for 2k? Because I personally would suggest going for a 1080 for 1080p @ 100hz+ or a 1070 for 1080p @ 60hz. Or even the 1070ti that might be coming out.
  3. Do you plan on overclocking or anything? And if so, how much (cpu and gpu)

I plan on playing AAA titles at the best settings possible @ 1440p 165hz. I might OC the CPU. Is Ryzen any good for this? I can do a R7 1700.

Ryder is definitely capable and cheaper as well I got it give me a few mjnutes

Ryzen is definitely capable (and cheaper), however, a 7700k can still get 10-20fps more on certain games.

Fair point, but with the budget in mind, I chose price over slightly bett3r performance

Oh yeah, definitely, budget-wise, fitting in a 7700k will cost a lot more as the cpu is more expensive and so is a z270 motherboard, not to mention, a cpu fan as well.

Is that possible?

Technically yes, but with compromises. You should wait for the i7-8700K restock next year and save up at least $200 more, then you can get a better aftermarket GTX 1080 Ti, better cooler, etc.

Completely doable I think you will like my parts list ideas I've put together a few. I tend to care about aesthetics as well

So in going with Ryder I was able to hit the specs you wanted for the money. However the cheapest 1440p 165hz monitor I could find was 390 dollars. However, I found a 28in 4k monitor for 300. The rig I've set up is more than capable of handling that display. It's 41 dollars over but you can always just take out the liquid cooler and use stock until you can upgrade. I didn't include windows 10 because you can get the free version and but the licence later on. All in all its a well rounded system https://pcpartpicker.com/list/MxvvPs
