Not really upto date on new Intel stuff (bought a Mac Pro for video editing), but this Intel board should tick all your boxes,
and this is the build it went with.

From what I have read the i7-8700K is more for high end gaming with a 1080ti due to the high clock rate. Though it will still give the best results in a lot of general use due to the fact that so much is still single threaded - particularly the Adobe s/w. The sweet spots for Ryzen are the R5-1600 and R7-1700 due to the amount they can be overclocked plus the stock cooler is supposed to be good. You also have the fact that the AM4 socket will stay until 2020 so you could get a decent MB and buy a newer chip down the line. That said the 8700K would last past that date anyway I expect.

Thanks Reecie. I was looking at the R7 1700 or 1700x, but when Amazon had the 1800x for £280 I quickly went for it as that was less than the 1700x had been (both are a bit lower now).

Hmm, I like the idea of a MB I can upgrade the CPU with in three years or so when the newer AM4 compatible ones have been replaced so would probably be cheaper but still an upgrade.

Thanks Boink.... that gives me something to mull over.

Thanks for the links, that PC Partpicker looks very usefull

I guess the Gigabyte - GA-AX370-Gaming K7 ATX AM4 is the Ryzen version of the MB Boink posted and £40 cheaper. So you pays yer money etc etc Tbh there are loads of videos on Youtube now doing comparisons with Ryzen to the new Intels. So probably worth checking a few - "Tech Deals" does some of the most in depth stuff I have seen... and his teeth are strangely hypnotic
