What monitors are these - which ports do they have? Resolution?
Will you need each monitor to be run separately or are they for displaying the exact same video output on each one?
What does the camera use connect to the PC?
How complex is this speaker system? Does it support/require a certain channel output?
A lot of questions, but necessary for a more tailored list.
Alright, finally got back to you:
PCPartPicker Part List
I've made a few tweaks here and there to squeeze as much as I could out of your budget (which I assumed was just under $1200).
Hope this helps! :)
Ah. You see you can't link to your parts list like that because that's the URL for everyone's current contents of their system builder. You need to paste the unique link for your list or, better, embed it like this:
Go to System Builder and select the highlighted icon.

Copy the contents in the box and paste it into your post.

Now when you save the post it will appear formatted.
Note: I made these screenshots back before the redesign, but the icons are in essentially the same place. It's mainly the colours and borders that have changed.
You won't even need the full budget if you wanna achieve 1080p gaming. (Check out the case, since there are a few different colours)
If you want max settings @ 144 FPS on (almost) all titles, this would meet that:
I haven't included a keyboard or mouse as they're a personal preference, so it's more up to you and what suits you best.
Just my two cents, but you'll probably need a decent amount of storage if you're gonna run a server.
If you don't want the extra storage then just remove the HDD:
Also, I don't trust mail-in rebates - retailers make them hard to claim (for obvious reasons).
Hmm, both would work fine. I'd say the Ryzen build has more 'power' - the extra threads can take heavier workloads on video editors etc.
Like Vegas and Premiere?
What exactly will you be running on the PC?
The majority of motherboards support the update, however, the actual process of updating the BIOS may require a Summit Ridge CPU (Zen).

The 2600's 12 threads will make streaming fairly smooth (depending on the bit-rate/resolution etc.)
An OEM version of Windows will prevent you from installing it on a different motherboard if you ever decide to switch.
Also, flashing that BIOS may prove problematic- you may need a summit ridge CPU to do the update.
Either way you'll get a premium gaming experience. Unless you're planning on heavy multi-tasking, the 8700K is good option if it fits in the budget.
This would make for a good build:
Good luck: make sure you buy a full version of Windows and not an OEM one.
Check out the S340 Elite case a see what you think - it has a tempered glass panel.
No worries :)
Yes and no. The 2700X and 8700K have similar overall performance, however they may perform a certain task better than the other. For example, if the game isn't very well optimised for SMT (Simultaneous multi-theading) then the 8700K will probably run it better - however if the game can utilise multiple threads well or maybe you are streaming etc., then the 2700X would outperform the 8700K with it's 16 threads versus the Intel's 12. It really depends on what you use the system for - either way both CPUs have exceptional performance and are well suited to almost any task.
I've put a comparison on the thread above.
Here's a comparison:
As you can see they're similar in price.
Alternatively, if you're not that interested in overclocking, opting for the 2700 instead would save you an additional 30 bucks.
Well yes, you'll need an AM4 motherboard - similar price range.
Also, what do you need 32GB for? That's quite a lot.
Pretty much - the Ryzen chips have much more threads whereas the Intel Core series focuses on single core performance. It depends on how you will use the PC.
AMD are known for having very good price/performance ratio.
I tweaked your list a little:
What are you using it for, gaming?
Yeah, should all be fine.
Although you won't be needing an 850W-rated PSU and this slightly better unit is on sale at Amazon.
I'm not so experienced with AOC, so I'm not sure. I own this monitor and it's a great unit.
Here's all you should need:
Added an SSD.
Do you already have an OS and peripherals etc. ?
Those monitors lack DisplayPort which means you'll have to use god-awful DVI cables, and that 1070 Ti only has one DVI port.
What are you gonna be using it for?
Didn't know that. Edited.
Mail-in rebates are usually unreliable - retailers often make them difficult to claim.
This would handle most games at mid-high settings @ 1080p60. If she's not playing intensive games then it'll be fine.
Oh, I see now.
What kind of games will be run on this PC, and what settings?
An entry level build would be like an R3 1200, 8GB RAM and a 1050Ti, which would happily run most games @ mid-high settings 1080p60.
No, no, the GTX 1050 Ti is inferior to the 1060 6GB, that's correct. But I haven't got my 1060 6GB running games at max settings with smooth framerates. Btw, are you planning on using that 1060 6GB you already have in this new build?
AMD's Ryzen line-up is good for its price/performance ratio. But it's your call.
Also, what budget do you have in mind?
The 1060 6GB can't handle AAA titles at max settings 1080p with a solid 60+ FPS, but it gets close.
Also, have you not considered Ryzen?
(Note: Use the 'reply' feature to directly add a comment to a thread.)
Why specifically the 8400 and 1060?
Yep, and since Intel had no competition, they started slacking too * cough * Broadwell.
Funny to think that the 'top' 2 consoles are actually running AMD APUs from 2013.
Use Speccy® by Piriform to identify the parts - https://www.ccleaner.com/speccy/download (It won't be able to identify the PSU though).
Also, don't go down the FX route - they're an obsolete and a poor quality product line. Ryzen is much better - I'd strongly recommend an R3 1200.
Parts are from either: Paradigit.nl, bol.com or Megekko.nl.
I didn't include keyboard or mouse as those are more personal choices and it's hard me to choose one for you, since I cannot know what works for you best. I personally recommend going for a Logitech, Corsair, Cooler Master or Razer, there are others that do a good job.

What's the monitor's resolution?
On it - I have to juggle between sites though.
I'm not from the Netherlands, but I found bol.com sells some components, also Paradigit.
A little while ago the GPU market 'blew up' (damn Bitcoin miners) so prices for them are pretty high right now - GTX 1060s were around $200-250, now they're $300+. Plus, all the RX 580/570/480/470s are sold out, or at ridiculous prices. For now, you may want to wait for the prices to settle.
(When at the normal prices) the 1080, 1070 and 1060 are pretty good buys - I have a 1060 6GB and I can run AAA titles at near max settings (1080p) with a good 60-80 FPS (e.g. GTA V).
+1 For the banana
Here's probably all you should need:
PCPartPicker part list / Price breakdown by merchant
Ok, so which applications do you use for this - name specific ones, for example what do you use for animations?
What kind of programs do you use for movie production?
Even if you are serious about building a workstation, the list you've made is past overkill - half of isn't needed. Although, I don't know exactly what you are doing.
Screenshot? I don't quite know what you mean.
But will it run Crisis?
Could be, he should try going back to the B150 to see if it still works.
(It's possible that something got damaged during installation, or something)
You could use DDR3 with Skylake if you had the right motherboard (don't know why you would?)
Can you get him on PCPP? No worries if not.
Ask him to check all internal cables are plugged into the correct places. (E.g. check CPU power, also if the GPU is correctly seated into its PCIe slot).
If that doesn't work, ask him to remove the GPU and use the integrated graphics on the 6600K (by connecting the HDMI/DVI) - to see if it boots up that way.
Is he running a graphics card? Also what PSU does he have? And which monitor?
Like hypergalaxy8 asked, what are the full specs of the PC?
