You may notice some parts do not have prices next to them. This is because my wife received an NZXT combo pack off their site during the Christmas sale season somehow. This helped a lot.
White. That's pretty much all my wife told me when she said she would love to have her own gaming computer. Of course this was good for me, because that means she would be spending less time on mine at the end of the day. It just so happens she tells me what she wants around the same time Asus announced their new Sabertooth Z170 "S" board. It's rather pretty, I'll give them that.
Finding the other parts to match was pretty straight forward. Since my PC is used as the home media server and plex machine, this one would not need the 6700k, so the 6600k was the logical choice. I was on a bit of a budget, as whatever the feds decided was an appropriate tax refund would be used (after paying off some bills).
Looking around I ran into Crucial Ballistic Sport LT series DDR4. This was recently released in a white camo - perfect. This wasn't so easy to find, though.
Galax was the logical choice for the GPU, since they are the only ones that make a truly white graphics card right now. Although I will confess the PCB is black, the fact that the fans, shroud, and backplate match the motherboard was good enough for me.
Since I also had to work in a $300 Ikea purchase of a new computer desk, chair, and carpet mat, I knew funds were going to be tight. So I went cheap with the rest of the build. The OCZ SSD used the colors I wanted and has reasonably good performance, and the Asus monitor is OK. My wife is not necessarily a photographer, but just wanted this to play some online MMO and MOBA games, she said she likes it. The keyboard was a similar affair, she liked it, enough said.
