I appreciate everyone's recommendations, but I think I've settled on the build that I'm going with. However, I'll still keep an open mind to future recommendations. Quick question, if I decided to upgrade to the 1070 variant of the newer cards in 2 years or so, would the 520W PSU still be good or should I get something a bit more powerful?

You will be fine with the 520w psu for a single card.

1060 w/ an i5. Will probably upgrade to a 1070 or the equivalent variant once the 1060 can't hang anymore on the majority of titles. I think I succeeded in what I was trying to accomplish. After doing the preliminary researc,. I'm thinking that in best case scenario, I should only have to replace the GPU in a 4-5 year cycle and in the worst case scenario, add more SSD storage and maybe replace CPU as well. Either way, I think I have the flexibility to do whichever. What do you think?

The argument for going big on the CPU is that the new CPUs typically don't work on the older motherboards, so there's no good upgrade path. And CPUs typically remain viable for gaming for alot longer than GPUs.

GPUs however, get improved each year and will work in any motherboard. Three years from now, the GTX 1080 will probably be outperformed by the xx60.
Super Mario Kart is the single best Mario Kart ever!

Build looks good to me! Shame that ram has gone up in price and even SSD (I got a 500gb for the same price last year.. ). When I look at your build my head says it should cost 900 max not 1000 but it's mostly those ram prices. You could probably shave some cost off if you wanted though with cheaper Mobo, maybe case, and PSU.. but everything you have looks good as is. Also check for combo deals on Newegg sometimes you be can get a Mobo+ CPU combo and shave off a good chunk. Those won't show up on pcpartpicker

My build is pretty much exactly the same minus the case fans, 8GB of RAM and has a 1070 in it for pretty much the same price as well... Why would you do this?

After doing some research, I came up with the following build; https://pcpartpicker.com/list/w4LzJV. It's running me a bit more than what I was originally looking at, ~$200 more than I wanted to spend, but it looks like it's going to have me set for a while and I'll have some flexibility when it comes to overclocking. If I did decide to upgrade my display, I'd probably only need to get a new video card and I think the parts that I chose are of fairly high quality. Lmk what you guys think.

No no, 8600k is here with z370 mobos. Ditch that expensive case and the win 10 license.

I'll look into that, but the case I've already decided on and the win 10 license I need because it's a new build.
