Recommend to upgrade to i7-8700K instead. It has 50% more cores compared to i7-7700K.

7700K is not worth the price. Go either Ryzen 7 1700 or i7-8700K.

New PCs today uses DDR4. Your old RAM is not compatible

Option 1:
Ryzen 7 1700 - 1599 (price drop pending)
Asus Prime B350M-A - 445
Corsair 8GB DDR4-2400 X2 - 800
Zotac GTX 1080 AMP! - 2629

Option 2 (change CPU and mobo):
Core i7-8700K (Security issue that may be big issue to some people) - 1589
MSI Z370 Gaming Plus - 599

Optional:
Super Flower Leadex Gold 650W - 479

If you plan on upgrading, do not forget the PSU.
It is definitely the first one to upgrade especially when it is used for so long.

proc : intel i7 7700k, 4.2ghz, 4 core, 8 thread & 8mb L3 cache, cost around, RM1409

gpu : asus gtx 1070 dual 8gb, cost around, RM1990

RAM : corsair ddr4, 8gb ram, 2400mhz cost around, RM399

mobo : asus tuf z270 mark 2, cost around, RM659

use back intel, for its good single thread performance, & don't worry about intel cpu's meltdown, as they are updating a 'patch'

as for gc, gtx 1070 8gb is sufficient

total up, for a leap, you need to fought out, RM4457

btw, you forgot to tell us your monitor resolution..

Ryzen+ (Zen+) will release on April with newer series mobo, double digit improve from Ryzen if you can wait. 7700k is not best gaming CPU now, even can't win I5-8600k, go 8600k if your budget can't reach 8700k.

AMD wise, R5 1600 still not a bad choice. AM4 platform will last till 2020 for Zen2, Z370 will not support next 8 cores CPU. Just FYI if future upgrade is your concern.
