***I found a really good deal on a 6700k, and added it to the parts list, though I decided not to add any new pictures considering the PC looks identical to how it did before.
The budget of this PC started out at around $700, and well... you see how that went. I'd like to thank the pcpartpicker community, as wellas various youtubers like Techsource, for the inspiration to make this PC happen. This is a bit overkill for my gaming needs, but I do plan on upgrading to a 1440p monitor soon. Enjoy, and feel free to comment any questions, thoughts, or concerns!
CPU: After seeing a great black friday deal, I decided to go all in and purchase a 6700k. Gaming performance is basically the same, but I am seeing significantly better render times on premiere.
CPU Cooler: This was a last minute decision but I definitely don't regret it! The deepcool captain 240ex looks great and is whisper quiet at lower rpm's.
Motherboard: I picked the popular asus z170-A. This is a fantastic motherboard, setup was a breeze, and I appreciate the white accents.
Memory: There is really not much to say about this RAM. It has a fairly standard speed at 2400 mhz and the white leds further add to the white theme I went towards.
Storage: For this PC, I opted for a 480gb SSD from OCZ. Its fast, cheap, and reliable!
Graphics Cards: After pascal launched, I was dead set on the GTX 1070. In around September I discovered this card and instantly purchased it on Newegg. The acoustics are great, and it runs all my games maxed well above 60 FPS.
Case: SInce early planing, I had always wanted to build in the Corsair 400c. The building process was pretty smooth, though cable management with extensions was a tricky job.
PSU: EVGA BQ: I bought this Power Supply in an attempt to save a few bucks, and I am actually pretty impressed. I can't hear it a majority of the time and semi modular design is also a plus.
MISC: Along with the essentials, I also purchased a Edimax wifi adaptor, Deepcool RGB 350, and a kit of White Cable Extensions from Phanteks.
