What I mean by no budget is don't worry about how much it is going to cost but don't spend an unnecessary amount. If you can justify the cost then do it.

Budget: None

Location: United States

Use: Mainly gaming

Peripherals required: None

Operating System required: No

Color scheme is Blue or Blue and White. The only thing is it all has to fit in this case The use is mainly for gaming and it has to be able to play all current and future games at max settings and high quality without any problems. Thanks for the help.

Not a ton of blue or white stuff so threw some black in there. For the power supply you can remove the labels or paint them

Where did you find that case? It is pretty old and hasn't been sold in quite a few years. If the cable management was better it would have been way ahead of its time. Price was insane though. It definitely would have been more successful if they could get the price closer to $140 rather than $190+. That being said, I use that case and I quite like it.

As for a build itself, Aldrighetti has a great build. The thing with Skylake motherboards is that the popular black and blue boards from Haswell never carried over. The only thing I can suggest is going with this G Skill RAM which is blue.

My friend(who I'm helping build this) said it's the case he wants to use. Not certain if he has it already tho.

If he doesn't already have it, the case will be extremely difficult to find. Due to the case's high end nature (and accompanying price) not many were made nor sold. If your friend already has it, the case is very interesting and, except for merely average cable management, a pretty nice case to work with. If he doesn't have it and wants a highly modular case, the best (and price is pretty nice too) option is the Cooler Master MasterCase 5 and MasterCase Pro 5. If he wants a general black and blue aesthetic, the Enermax ECA3820 and NZXT H440 and S340 are great choices.
