I got the 7700K 4.2 now and there is definitely nothing wrong with it.

I haven't went through all of the comments but, without being to specific to the brands and models, I recommend two RAID 0 SSDs (for your OS especially and even Arma can benefit from this - if you get a UEFI Motherboard you will get stellar speeds) and for those mega graphics I'd say you even SLI two video cards (depending on your budget - I wouldn't be able to afford this). And I recommend against high speed RAM memory. Just get a lot of it. Unless you do 3D graphics and shit, it is a waste of money.

High speed ram is a huge deal for frames in 6th gen and above CPUs.

I'm willing to help you out on this! I'm a master with the PC industry.

Help me answer these questions please so I can give you the best of what you actually need.

1. What is the exact amount you are willing to spend?
2. What do you want to do with your PC? Just gaming in general? Or all you care about is Arma 3? Are you going to make a video editing and want to stream your games?
3. If all you care about is gaming, Do you want a high refresh rate monitor Like 100hz and 144hz etc? or normal 60hz
4. what resolution do want to play on? 4k, 1440p or 1080p.
5. Do you want RGB in your system? "Christmas tree" on your desk.

Sorry I'm too serious but I have to be like that. Trust me, I can give you the best value for your money. I can't just put PC parts without a single information :D

Oh sorry I just saw that you already own the 7700k. Ok we can start from here.

Is the 7700k used or compliantly new? If it's compliantly new and never been used, then I highly recommend you to sell it with the original MSRP price if you can! Or maybe 50$ cheaper.

I built it already. 

I took the basic build from SSG Redman and upgraded the motherboard to ASUS ROG STRIX Z370-E and power supply to 750W and graphics card to an ASUS ROG STRIX GeForce GTX 1080 TI 11GB.

Yeah that's a solid rig that will last you quite awhile.

My advice is to grab a cheap SSD just for Arma. That's what I have and it loads really, really, really fast.
