I'm not sure about that. 3200MHz RAM should do the trick. Look at your motherboard's QVL to see what RAM is pre-qualified (and guaranteed) to work properly with it.
I have four 8GB sticks of 3200MHz GSKill Ripfarts here that I can go to if my 32GB of GEIL Super Luce 4133MHz doesn't work out for me. But I hope that the GEIL works.

GSKill usually works on any mainboard.

tango bango Well the bad after the good! So went to order everything at newegg and the 3700x is out of stock. Anyone know how long it might be until they get more?

You can get by with the stock cooler for now and see how it goes. I suggest scraping off the stock paste from it and replace it with MX-4 or something.

You can sell the stock cooler after replacing it.

Buy a good air cooler as for the OS you can download Windows 10 for free on the MS website and buy a legal Windows 10 Pro digtal key from lvlgo from $15,75 and if you use the code JSL22 at checkout you will get a 22% discount on those $15,75

Its not illegal or anything like that

Edit, I threw this together this morning. But thought it may not work.

The RTX 2080 Super is out later in July so the older RTX 2080 will see a price drop so pretty bad idea to buy one at full price now

The RTX 2070 Super is the same price as the old RTX 2070 but is actually a cut down RTX 2080 so its almost as fast as the old RTX 2080 so dont buy an RTX 2080 at full price that would be a waste of money

And if this is a gaming rig you can drop the 970 Evo its not faster or better in any way compared to an 860 Evo

shilka What parts besides the GTX 1070 Ti do you have that you will re-use?
