I want a quiet and compact build. I'm open to it not using the conventional "tower" case. Not flashy.
I was going to buy used on CL, but there were some inconsistencies with what the guys receipt he emailed me said and what newegg said when I called. In particular, there were different dates on the receipts I was given vs what their records show. Regardless, I'm building this and I'm a newbie.
Options for variation:
Microcenter CPU / Motherboard Combo
one other option: i7-6700k & ROG Z170 Express Maximus VIII Hero LGA 1151 ATX @ $568.98 (+~$100)
Is it worth getting a mobo that can support 64gb ram / DDR4 for future upgrades? I want to make sure the mobo is SLI capable too (x2).
How important is Hz? I'd like to eventually upgrade to 32gb if it proves making video editing easier. I have no clue on quality / price / deals for this. Help would be appreciated.
Importance of a good PSU?
Versus this for instance.. https://pcpartpicker.com/part/corsair-power-supply-cx750m
What am I looking or in a cooler? Something that is quiet is preferable, but I dont want to spend a fortune.
Open to downgrading GPU if I can get a smaller one at a better price

And then I ask myself.. why not this pre-built?
