Question

Is this a good gaming desktop?

Just want to know if this setup will run the most demanding games at ultra and 60fps+. I'm not tech savvy at all and I'm just getting into the PC stuff. Been saving a for long while and I'm finally gonna pull the trigger. Just wanna make sure this is a good setup, and I don't waste my money. Thanks in advance.

Intel Core i7-8700K
GeForce GTX 1080 8GB
32GB DDR4 3000MHz
500GB M.2 SSD Drive
3TB 7200RPM Storage

Looks fine

I don't overclock so I'd go for the non K model....save some bucks.
if you go with the K model you will need to get a cpu cooler.
