Wanted to properly do Youtube and Twitch (cough cough https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC-WalwJpC8-SpOfbTFSg-sg) without my old 750 ti and i5 4670 with two slow hard drives, so I built this.
Rational for the 1060 in a X99 build: This originally started out as a build I posted on reddit that was labled "the cheapest X99 build you can get". It can run 1440p (and SMALL instances of 4k) and is mainly meant for those who are more to the productive side of things than the gamery stuff. This means more power was focused on the CPU than the GPU, since the CPU (unless your using CUDA powered premiere) is quite the power-drive for most software. I am using Sony Vegas, so most power is on the CPU, so the 6 core 5820k seemed like the perfect choice.
16 GBs of RAM is kinda cutting it close for what im doing, since im running Photoshop CC and Vegas 13 at the same time, so it takes up quite a bit of RAM. However, the RAM can easily be upgraded and switched out for more and faster.
Storage was an easy choice, as the WD Blue has space, and is fast for an HDD, so it will be the recording drive. The 2 TB Hitachi was the mistake my younger self made back in 2012-2013, thinking that all 7200 drives were the same. The SSD is cheap, realiable, fast, and not m.2 but its mainly for its price.
The GTX 1060, from my research, is the best value. The only downside I saw to it was its looks, then again I was going for cheap and good.
The motherboard has a good audio cheap until I get a good AMP with a mic port. The Headset that I have has the same drivers as the HD 380 Pros, so its fairly good. Still aiming for a pair of Audio-Technica AIR series headphones, as they have the soundstage and the music I listen to (orchestral) benefits from that.
CPU cooler is MUCH bigger than I thought, but its basically a sideways version of the NH-D14 (I think thats the one) however its blowing air up, and being carried by the soon to be front 2x 140 mm fans.
All in all, I still havent built this yet, and the only reason Im pushing it is because im super excited and I want to be the first MasterCase Pro 3 build on this site.
sorri for the bad camera, its a Samsung galaxy S5
