Wanting a white theme'd build for around $1200. Don't know whether or not a skylake would be good or maybe an xeon. This will be used for Steam gaming(CS:GO, GTA5, G Mod), and streaming/recording simultaneously. I really like the NZXT H440 white/black case. Please help me out!

I would go with the i5-6600k and overclock it. Also going with 16 gigs of ram would be a good idea.

Crossfire being dual GPU's right? would a noctua do the job until i can upgrade? and also how much of a pain would it be to switch to The Kraken X61 in the future for overclocking the cpu?

Seeing that the R9 only has one DVI would display port be better for a dual monitor setup?

Also Is there a comparable Nvidia card that would be good for SLI in the future? Just curious, other than that I love the build.

the RM850 is not a good choice. As a matter of fact its being replaced by the RMx and the RMi which are good ones but overpriced :(

the EVGA G2 850 is way superior than the RM850 in every way. Even the warranty which is 10 years. Doesn't make much sense recommending an inferior PSU.

Really?

yes..
