Default Upgrading my PC, and building my kids first.

Hey, I am somewhat experienced with PC building I have upgraded mine to the point it has almost no original parts in it, but I am no means an expert. I just wanted to get opinions from more knowledgeable people before blowing over 1k in PC parts. So Right now my PC has a I7 7700k, 1080ti, 32gb of 2400mhz ram, 1tb ssd,3tb hdd, 600w psu, asus tuf mk2 mb. The plan as of now is to upgrade my 7700k to a 3700x, my 32gb of 2400 ram to 32gb of 3600, my motherboard to a asus tuf x570-plus, upgrading PSU to at least 700w, and build my kid their first gaming pc by putting those extra parts in one for them, I think I will go with the RX 580 8gb for the gpu, but I am not 100% sold into it yet.

I want to make sure the PC built for them will be decent enough to run most games at, at least medium settings for modern games? I did a PC part picker here for what my kids Pc would look like, and also what mine would. One thing I do not know much a bout is the right PSU to pick up for my mb/gpu, On pc part picker it lists a comparability issue because the mb requires a second 4 pin connector that a lot of psu's do not have when I was going through them, and I know my 1080ti requires a 6pin+8pin to power it. So I really have no idea what PSU to actually go with, any thoughts would be great in helping, thanks for taking the time guys.

Mine so far. https://pcpartpicker.com/list/Y9NWPn
