I think the pro is perfectly fine for you.

I'm not a huge fan of the mobo and I'd go with the corsair h110i gt for the 140mm fans but besides that I really like it.

I like it because I believe I helped you with some of this a few weeks ago.

I know two people that have used the msi m5 and like it. I I had a x99 m7 and really liked it. I I think the m5 is really close in price. Gigabyte has their gaming series and I love Asus motherboards and they have a couple in that price range.

So do you recommend a specific model?

I don't really choose any one model. I've used asrock, msi, Asus, and gigabyte on builds I've done over the last year and didn't have problems with any of them. I guess just go with the one you like the looks of and has the features you need while staying in your price range. I will says Asus was my favorite with msi a close 2nd.

Basically should you go with a i5 or i7? I would stick with skylake for sure. I7 maybe a bit overkill for your needs. It was for me and the i7 wasn't available anywhere when I bought my cpu.

What res will you be playing on? How much are your parents willing to spend?

I will by playing at 4K

By the way, I will be paying with the money I saved up over the past 1.5 years. I want to spend about <$1800 with case fans included so if you want to, feel free to create an ideal 4K ready $1800 (with case fans) gaming PC

Dang that's a lot to save up for someone your age. You have a keyboard mouse and monitor/TV?

My build with a 390 ended up costing about 2200 at least. I was afraid to add it all up. So if I would of had a 980TI I'd be looking at 2500 or so.

Our builds are similar so after taxes and shipping 1800 will be a bit tough but I did have a lot of extras.

Thanks, I do not have peripherals, so I'm thinking

4K 28" monitor (if you know a good one for <$500 please tell me) OR a 29" ultrawide monitor (do you think I should go 4K or ultrawide there will be a $150-200 difference with the ultrawide being cheaper)

Razer Blackwidow Chroma Stealth, Logitech G910, or K65 RGB (what do you think)

Logitech G502 or Razer Mamba Chroma (opinion?)

The price all depends on

1) if I go 6700k, 6600k, or 4790k

2) and if I go ultrawide or 4k

I would go with the i5 to save 150 or so. Your i7 build will most likely be over 1800 after everything. You should consider sleeved cables also. I know cablemod sells just the 24 pin, cpu, and vga for like 40. It makes builds so much cooler.

Ok, but will the i5 handle a little bit of editing?

I was going to refrain from sleeved cables because I was going to get RGB led lights so I could change my whole setup's color scheme
