I am currently a resident of the United States , and I'm looking for pc that can run every game at max settings and still maintain decent frame rates. i would like the fastest beast of a pc i could get for the money ,I would also like all the components to be in a full tower case , with a blue and orange color scheme if possible , of course the pc will be heavily used as my main gaming / streaming rig , so the only requirements are as follows , it must utilize the fairly new skylake processors , and the build must include some sort of wireless network adapter and a copy of windows 10 , and i would like it to be fairly quite .If you can help me thanks.

There is no such thing as making a build future proof. Also you forgot a very important detail., your budget.

what might that be , and by future proof i meant that it would still be able to run games and other applications fairly easily in the coming years with minimal upgrades.

Right now is a pretty bad time to want a Skylake streaming machine. The 6700k is outrageously overpriced if you can even manage to find it. Plus, with the looming release of the new x99 processors and Pascal, it's likely that anything near this budget will be doubly outperformed within a few months.

Something like this is the best place to start. It has the most powerful CPU that isn't totally overpriced, and it offers a lot of room for expansion. The platform will be compatible with the newer x99 release, and the 980ti is plenty strong for 1080p and 1440p. Adding another would be recommended for 4k gaming, but I put only one in so that you could save some cash now to hold over until the release of Pascal, which will offer much more economical 4k performance, since they are being developed as 4k cards.
