I have been looking over and reconfiguring my own builds for far too long. Finally decided to just ask for some advice.
Budget: No real limit just good performance per dollar Location: Southwest Missouri but can run to St. Louis and similar if it could save a large amount of money. Use (Gaming, Rendering, etc): Gaming mostly Killing floor 2, Space Engineers, heavily modded Minecraft, Rainbow 6: Seige, Fallout 4, and Final Fantasy XIV. Prefer 1080p60 Recording and Streaming are included. Peripherals required (monitor, keyboard/mouse, etc): monitor, Keyboard, mouse, and headset recommendations please. Operating System required: Windows 10 Special: I would like to keep with Nvidia Cards do to most games being built using Nvidia based features. Also needs to allow for an Elgato HD60 Pro PCIe card. If possible I would like a Red/Black based theme in the Fractal Design Define R5. The goal is to use this as a full use then later on once I build a more modern unit when Z170 and DDR4 are cheaper making it into a server. So a maxed out Z97 or an easily upgraded X99 platform would be ideal.
The system will be built over varying stages from base platform, downloading games and saving up cash,to full gaming, leveling up my skills again, then completed recording machine.
Please help, and thank you for taking the time to read my request. Sorry for the hassle.
