New Gaming PC Build

Hi all! I'd like to buy a brand new computer, but I'm not sure about the components... There are several problems and I'm not sure of what to choose.

I'm thinking about this build:

Liquid Cooling: Master Seidon 240v
Ram: 16GB DDR4 HyperX FURY 2133mhz
Thermal Grease: Arctic mx-4
CPU: i7 8700k OR Ryzen 1700
Motherboard: ASRock z370 Killer SLI 1151 (for 8700k. probably a Gigabyte AB350 for the ryzen)

The main problem is that right now the i7 8700k is VERY expensive in my country (430/450+€) and it doesn't worth it. It should be at least at 350-380 in my opinion. But I also know that with a Ryzen 1700 (not x) I would have something with less performances. What should I do? Wait for i7's price to go lower or go for a 1700? What about other components?
