Your Profile Pic is pretty sick as well.
Yeah that is probably what I am going to do, I can't wait to get this i3 out of my PC.
Haha, yeah I figured, my i3 doesn't like it if I am doing other things at the same time lol.
I would love to upgrade my GPU so I can use the full 144Hz, but right now my main goal is streaming, which you can only stream at 60Hz right now.
I will also be using Photoshop a lot to make overlays for my channel.
Do you think I should get a 6600K over the 6700K, because the 960 does fine for 1080p, I could always add a better GPU later.
Yeah I made sure I got a okay mother board because I wanted room to upgrade, I just needed have it in my budget at the time to get the 6700K. I was thinking about added 8 GB of ram since ram is pretty cheap.

What are you going to be using this computer for?
Yeah it should run it pretty well at 1080p.
Haha, speaking of dark side I was thinking about getting the white one and trying to do like a stormtrooper build.
It looks really nice, I am like 90% sure I am going to use it for my next build.
Nice build! I have been thinking of doing a build in that case, how do you like it?
Yeah I am waiting for benchmarks before I let him pull the trigger, but I am hopping its as good as they say it is.
He is wanting better game performance, which I was think about the RX 480 when it comes out, do you think his CPU would bottleneck the GPU.
I didn't even notice he had DDR3 on there, must of over looked it.
Looks good to me, should last you a few years before needing to upgrade.
Also check out NXT Level PC on facebook they are a newer company but build some great PC's for a very reasonable price.
Its actually really good for an air cooler, really the only difference between the one you put is the be quiet will be a little bit quieter.
How does that look to you.
Really the only difference between the H100i and the Kraken is that the Kraken does 106.1 CFM and the H100i only does 70.7 CFM.
For those prices if you have the money just get them now, I don't see the 380 going down much more in price.
I didn't put the 1080's on here because this site doesn't have the option yet, but I went with the card closes to the 1080 price.
The NZXT S340 or Phanteks ECLIPSE P400 are both great cases.
Oh ok I see. If he is rendering videos I would take off the cooler and put it towards faster ram, it will speed things up.
If he won't be doing any type of gaming, 3D modeling, or rendering you don't really need a dedicated GPU, because the CPU has Integrated Graphics. but if you think he needs one this would save you a lot of money.
If you need any help with a parts list just let me know your budget and what you will be doing on the pc.
If you are using the i5 6500 you don't need the cooler because it comes with a stock cooler.
Your best bet would probably to build a new rig, but you can save some cash by keeping you hard drive which has your OS on it, so you won't have to buy those two things.
What is your budget.
The reason you want higher Hz monitor is for example with my current video settings on Doom I get around 80-90 Frames per second which if I didn't have a monitor that does 144Hz then I could run into screen tarring which is the monitor not being able to keep up with the GPU.
The monitor I put on your list only does 60Hz which is 60 frames per second, the Acer GN246HL does 144Hz which is 144 frames per second. the parts list I gave you will run every game on high setting. I currently have an i3 6100 and a GTX 960 4GB card and I run Doom on high settings, and must of battlefield settings on high.
Also if you are going to be playing FPS then you would be better off getting a monitor with 144Hz rather then 60Hz. I personal own the Acer GN246HL 144Hz and I love it.
If you play FPS, the CS: GO is a must have also battlefield and Doom are really good on PC's, a lot better the consoles!
What kind of games are you playing, because that could change what monitor you need.
Do you need OS, and is the monitor included in the 800 dollar budget? And if not what is your budget for the monitor.
Yeah if they are closer to $700 then I will probably rise my budget a little.
Haha I don't blame you at all, but other then that it is a nice and clean build.
I won't be getting the Founder's Edition, I am going to wait till the other brands put out their versions.
Beautiful, just beautiful. I love black and white themed PC, the only thing I don't like is the red GPU but for that price can't really complain. great job!
Yeah I didn't notice that till now but I don't plan on doing sli and if I did I would get a better mobo and better GPU's.
Yeah this I3 is performing really well.
It was really easy to build in it but the clear window can get messed up if you are not careful.
I really like that desk, where did you get it? Also does you white mouse pad work while with your mouse, because with mine my mouse will move even if it is not touching the pad.
Yeah I would rather to much room so at least the components can breathe.
Yeah this is a big upgrade from a PS4 which is what I was doing my games on. It is running amazing couldn't be happier. I have ran games like CS GO, battlefield, Tera, Need for Speed, and soon will be playing Doom when that comes out.
Thanks, there is a lot of room in the case, I didn't think it was going to be that big but like you said lots of room for upgrades.
I went with the mobo because I do plan on getting the 6600k when I have the extra cash.
