Any advice for my build?

So Im finally buying parts for my PC and I was just going to see if there is anything anyone suggest for improving my rig. It is going to be a general gaming/streaming rig. I do a little video editing here and there but nothing substantial. I was thinking of maybe getting a cheaper power supply but I don't know about that. Maybe the Corsair RM850?

Also I already bought the case. I got the Phantom 820 since the white one is going for 70$ now since NZXT is going through an identity crisis phase.

I would go with H115i Cooler, and drop the PSU to 650W, max 750W. Even if you overclock everything balls to the wall 650W will be more than enough.

Edit: Aso you don't need AXi series. They make sense when you have big power requirements. RMi or RMx would be perfect for your build.

Edit 2: Also take money from power supply, add 100 more on top, and take 1080 Ti.

If you are comfortable with OCing then get the 2700 and OC it, also get a B450 board and get an RM 750 like Avet said, but if you are going to get a 1080p monitor it's a waste getting the 1080 Ti, SO see if you can get a 2560x1440p monitor with the 1080Ti with the money saved on the other components!
Maybe add a little bit more if you're short but seriously you won't regret it.
Don't know if this part list saved but here you go as an example https://pcpartpicker.com/list/

I didn't pay attention on monitor. I agree with Excalibur. 2700, B450, RM 750, add a little bit and get 1440P monitor, and 1080 Ti. It will make a ton of difference.

My one issue with getting the b450 version of the board I have is that it cuts me down two usb 3.0s. I know that seems like such a bitchy gripe but thanks to how many USB3.0 slots body tracking VR takes it is a bittttt of an issue. Is there are suitable b450 board that could accomplish my needs in that regard?

EDIT: I also kind of want to wait on getting anything above the 1080 just because...well to be frank I was highly disappointed with the RTX release line and I want to give the green team as little money as possible before they release something right proper.

EDIT 2: Oh on the topic of monitors are there any 1440 monitors you all would suggest?

Here is what I would go with for that kind of build
https://pcpartpicker.com/list/b9qjLJ
Its 18$ cheaper.
I changed the drive config to a 250gb nmve drive so you can take advantage of AMDs SenseMI technology
A better monitor with gsync and a better 1080
I think this gives you better performance and value for your money

Another top build! Whilst being closer to what he wants.

Well now I just feel like a nit now. Though I was having a discussion with people, should I just drop down to a Ryzen 5 for now and see where things go with Zen 2? It is coming out within a few months and I would feel a bit miffed if I bought the best of the best now and for Zen 2 to come with DDR5 and so on.

The Phantom would fit a NH-D15 fine, which makes more sense as a cooler IMO.

I wish I had waited when I went ryzen last xmas even though I knew 3 months wait would net me newer at similar cost. I was rocking an A10 APU so knew I would get a massive performance gain and I was impatient.
If the gains for zen2 are more than ecpected than it might be worth waiting especially if they are not in need of a new chipset like zen+ was.
Zen2 is due March I think so thats a 5 month wait. then there are sales to be had.
If I was in your shoes and already had a system then I would wait for zen2 but would keep a close on component prices and when you something at a very good bargain snap it up. By the time zen2 is released you should have pretty much the rest of the components and have saved a lot of $ in the process
