So I already went out and got a Gigabyte Z170 - Gaming 7(G1) Motherboard for 170$ during black friday, which saved me about 40-50$ from how expensive the board usually is. It's still on sale if you're looking for a good motherboard.

Anyways, I'm looking for a white skylake build. I want the maximum amount of money including the motherboard to be about 1100$, so without including the motherboard since I already got it, about 930$. I want an overclocking CPU, a good graphics card, a good cpu cooler, and a good case. It will be primarily a gaming build, though I would love an i7.

Thanks!

I forgot to mention that I don't need a HDD. Already got one.

well..in that case. You could use the money on a bigger SSD, or better cooler, like a watercooler or something like that.

By the way guys I don't need a HDD. And also I tried to create a well balanced build before but I wasn't happy with the results which is why I'm posting this.
