  1. You don't need liquid cooling. With your 8400 any good air cooler will deliver exactly the same performance in temps and are likely to be even quieter.
  2. I'd recommend you wait until cheaper boards appear for Coffee Lake. The Z-series is enthusiast-class, supporting SLI and all that jazz, which you don't really need. I believe the cheaper boards should surface just around the end of the year.
  3. Depending on the FPS you are targeting, you may not need a GTX1070 - take a look at a GTX1060 6Gb instead.

I'll be doing some video editing and some coding in python and javascript. And also alot of gaming. PUBG, cs-go, GTA 5, and tom clancy's ghost recon wildlands.

Hiya,

So here's what I'd suggest.... Make sure your motherboard's BIOS is completely updated so that the new CPU will work properly.

You don't need to replace everything, you've already got most of a build! The i5 7500 is so much faster than your G4400.

Regarding the GPU the best one to go for is the GTX 1060 6GB but I put the 3GB in there because it's still really good and over $50 cheaper.

I'd get this CPU instead, it repleaced the i5 7500, and has 2 more cores and better single core speed.

but doesn't fit in a H110. So you also need to buy another mobo.
