Trying To Build My First Hardcore Gaming PC

What is your intended use for this build? The more details the better.
I'm and avid computer user, but have never had a truly powerful PC. I definitely plan on using it for gaming and graphic design, like Photoshop and Bender 3D, but also maybe even video and music editing.
If gaming, what kind of performance are you looking for? (Screen resolution, framerate, game settings)
I definitely want something that would be worth the money and effort. I want to definitely run lots of games and emulators at high settings and 60+ fps. Running games like Skyrim and Fallout with numerous mods including graphic enhancing. I would also like it to handle more modern games also, but that's mostly a plus.
What is your budget (ballpark is okay)?
600-800$ I definitely want the money I put into this to be worth it. But I also don't need anything too insane. As I'm sure the end result will be more powerful than any computer I've ever owned. I should mention that I already have most of the parts I need listed below.
In what country are you purchasing your parts?
USA
Provide any additional details you wish below.
Story Time: A couple years back my cousin got talked into building a bitcoin rig. He didn't know anything about building a PC, but he had a friend who assured him that he could help. He had my cousin buy a lot of really expensive parts, and tried to put it together himself. Turns out he completely lied and must have had very little idea what he was doing. He didn't even have my cousin get a video card or the right ram for the motherboard. At one point he screwed up installing the processor and bent both the pins of the motherboard and the corner of the processor. That's when he decided to sneak out of the house and never spoke to my cousin again.
So for about a year this computer sat in the corner of his room half built. I'd ask him if he ever planned on doing anything with it, and he'd say he didn't want to waste any more money trying to fix it. So he decided to give it to me and said if anyone could get it running I could. So here I am.
Parts I have:
Mother Board: ASUS Z7170-A
Graphic Card: GeForce GTX 1070 Gaming X 8G
Disk Drive: LG GH24NSC0
Case: GUNGNIR ATX Mid Tower Gaming
Power Supply: EVGA Supernova 850 G2

$1500-$2000 USD scientific workstation

Build Help/Ready:

Have you read the sidebar and rules? (Please do)
Yes.
What is your intended use for this build? The more details the better.
Primary: Scientific Workstation
Software includes -
-> computationally expensive MATLAB
- CUDA-enabled GPU computing for MATLAB
-> computationally expensive quantum chemistry/DFT software
- Examples of software - I want to be able to do GPU-assisted simulations as well
- VASP - has GPU support
-> computationally expensive FDTD software
- Lumerical FDTD Solver - commercial software (I have a license) that apparently does not support GPU support; seems the main bottleneck is memory bandwidth and not processing power
gsvit - open source FDTD with GPU support
Secondary: Gaming, Cryptocurrency (Etherium, Bitcoin mining)
I figure the workstation specifications will more than cover the computer's ability to do these, but I wanted to mention these all for completeness sake.
If gaming, what kind of performance are you looking for? (Screen resolution, framerate, game settings)
1080p 60fps on high/ultra is good, but if the performance is possible wouldn't mind getting into 4k down the road. I mainly play Blizzard games and Minecraft right now, but may get into Destiny 2.
What is your budget (ballpark is okay)?
$1500-$2000, but variable.
In what country are you purchasing your parts?
United States

Provide any additional details you wish below.
As I mentioned, the primary purpose of this computer will be as a scientific workstation. I don't intend for it to be servecluster quality, but rather a strong desktop computer (duel Windows/Linux boot) that can run some relatively small, computationally expensive simulations and software in a reasonable amount of time, before larger projects/assignments are created for running on a computing cluster.
My main concerns are reducing bottleneck - I want to be able to run both CPU and GPU-intensive software in a balanced way, meaning I'm not skimping on the GPU for a better CPU and vice versa. I realize it could be difficult to compare
Some specific questions I have:
1) According to Intel's site, the max RAM speed supported by the i7-7700k is DDR4-2400. How does one use RAM with a higher speed? Do you need a Xeon processor? Also, I'm looking at 32 GB RAM.
2) For my purpose, should I definitely get a Z270? I read somewhere that it has a better memory controller than the Z170, but not sure about this.
3) How does the 1080 compare to 2x 1070? Or a 1080 Ti? For CUDA and for cryptocurrencies? I don't know too much about these from a computer hardware perspective, but am interested in learning more.
Thank you!

Planning on selling my current PC to go towards a a new $1500 build

Build Help/Ready:

Hello, I am planning on selling my current PC I built a few years ago to go towards this new one. It's listed below, any input as to a fair price I could sell for would be great
Have you read the sidebar and rules? (Please do)
Yes
What is your intended use for this build? The more details the better.
Gaming and Programming. The ability to dual boot Linux and run VMs in Windows would be a huge plus. For whatever reason my motherboard will just not boot into Ubuntu or even run a usable VM
I have gotten into mining bitcoin recently (Using NiceHash), however it's more of just a hobby to save up for a steam game eventually or something. I don't expect any real profit
If gaming, what kind of performance are you looking for? (Screen resolution, framerate, game settings)
I have a 4K monitor, but I would like to be able to play games at high/ultra possibly at 1440p
What is your budget (ballpark is okay)?
About $1500
In what country are you purchasing your parts?
Canada

I'll probably end up swapping out the CPU cooler for liquid eventually, as well as installing more RAM
EDIT: With that liquid cooler I definitely plan on overclocking
Thanks for the help!

Da bei der Spaltung von U‑235 durch Neutronenbeschuss mehrere Neutronen entstehen, ist eine Kettenreaktion möglich. Die bei einer Kernspaltung entstehenden schnellen Neutronen müssen jedoch durch einen Moderator (z.B. Wasser) zu thermischen Neutronen abgebremst werden, damit diese wieder wahrscheinlich genug Urankerne spalten. Crypto lovers are eagerly anticipating the Bitcoin halving that’s coming up soon. It all comes down to supply and demand… Currently scheduled for May 12, 2020, the supply of new Bitcoin will be cut in half. It will go from the current rate of 12.5 Bitcoins every 10 minutes to 6.25 Bitcoins. This isn’t the first Bitcoin halving. The last two times, the price went full supernova after the ... Bitcoin is based on blockchain technology, a decentralized platform which takes power away from a central authority and gives it to the average person. Sensitive information is stored on the blockchain rather than large data centers, and is cryptographically secured. A vast amount of people, known as miners, all work together to validate the network, instead of just one person or government ... About Decred. Decred price today is $12.38 USD with a 24-hour trading volume of $3,030,377 USD. Decred is down 0.65% in the last 24 hours. The current CoinMarketCap ranking is #73, with a market cap of $150,723,200 USD. If you own a PSU of an old Bitcoin miner you might be able to use that as well. For example the EVGA SuperNOVA 1300 Watt GPU PSU should also work with this miner. However if you don’t already own a compatible PSU it will probably be best to just buy the APW3-12-1600-B2 and add it to your initial investment cost. It probably won’t cost much more than any other old PSU you can find.
