Very comfortable budget for a first build. As for the component choices, nicely done. Are there corners that could have been cut and areas that could have been more focused on? Of course but I honestly believe that you did what you did because you know what you need. +1

I need the 1070 just for the 8 gigs and I do game a lot quadros are fairly expensive and I feel I would kick myself when a consumer card may have been faster

I absolutely love the build. I am actually building something very similar to this. My build would be almost the exact same if I had the budget you had.

How does the gtx 1070 fit inside the case? Like is it a tight fit or is it plenty of space . I planning on getting that card and want to know how it fits inside.

Just so you know buddy, you forgot to take the protective plastic on that heat sink on the motherboard just behind your graphics card. I have the same motherboard and did the same initially!
