Is this a good deal for the components?

For $200 more you get 32GB of RAM, is that something that would have a major impact on the overall performance?

I would appreciate your insight!

for a prebuilt to be a good deal, this needs to be $1300 or less. this also has extra stuff you don't need like m.2 and 2tb hd. i just recently built a GTX 1080 build for $886. but depends if you need an 8700k. mine is 8400

No not a good deal and you can add in that ram easily for no more than 150 bucks.

Also you probably won't notice any difference with the extra ram. Unless you're opening 500 tabs on chrome and editing video while gaming you don't need that much ram.

Do you have any links or just a parts list of what you bought?

Wow, 10$ case and 366$ for 1080 - not bad Smilie although won't you lose some"horse power" with this cpu and Mobo? I'd think the 1080 will make it work pretty hard. Personally I'd go for i7 with this GPU, if you can afford it...

no, i5-8400 is a game changer being 6-cores, basically an i7 without hyperthreading. max fps is reportedly lower with hyperthreading (but higher minimum fps). games like physical cores. there's a reason i didn't select i3. cpu load constantly at 40-50% only. mobo maybe, but i haven't seen any downside and i don't need overclocking with a locked budget cpu. i hit 144fps on 1440 in pubg

No it would only be a big impact if you use some seriously heavy photo/video apps/editing or maybe you are an extreme gamer?/ Also if you plan on having a lot of virtual machines on this pc. Most users would never notice the difference after 8gb.

Can the same system be upgraded to next coming GPUs, 1180 in future? i am looking to go with 1060 and upgrade later next year to new series. Thank you for the info.

So it's uncertain, but almost always the GPUs will work on the same motherboards across generations. I haven't read in any of the rumor mills that the 11 series will require a new mobo.

Buy that 1060 now, you'll be fine to use the 11 series on the same mobo once the new card comes out. (Ignoring size and power requirements. Like your power supply might not be able to handle the new card if it takes more power than whatever your current build provides)
