I am looking for a $1,000 build, that will be used for some gaming and just every day tasks. I will be using a Dual Monitor and maybe a 3 Monitor setup if that matters.

Wants - Black/Red Theme, Nice Looking Case Needs - Wi-Fi Card Not Needed - OS/Monitor/Keyboard/Mouse

Let me know what you guys can come up with!

You can get a z170 at that price, but it would be a personal preference thing.

Yeah I know but I figure that if its the same price the z170 isn't prob all that great. Hard to tell sense its all so new not a ton of reviews and info to go on just yet.

a z170 is just not needed with a locked CPU (i think so, maybe there are other benefits over the B150)

dont need the aftermarket cooler, dont need a z170 mobo with a locked cpu, the r9 390 beats the 970 for less money, the nex series power supplies are not so great, he said he doesnt need OS,monitor,keyboard, or mouse but DOES need a wifi card...kinda fail.

I think a z170 makes sense when spending that much on a motherboard, especially since it has crossfire support and will allow for overclocking if they upgrade later.

yeah maybe but not everyone plans on goin to over clock and thats not really that high of a priced z170 so kinda preference i spose just like to point everything out.

That 970 is both overpriced and outperformed by a $300 R9 390.

Edit: I need a nap, I keep getting confused.

Build Looks great... Just a few noob questions :p I know it only has 1 HDMI port so what do I need to buy to set up a dual monitor or triple Monitor display? Would you suggest going for 16GB ram? Only reason I ask is because the budget would allow for it.

Thanks for the build!

Gotcha, how many DVI slots does the computer have?

How does that work? A DVI converter with 3 HDMI outputs?
