The Winner: Now, I would just like to say that everyone did an incredible job, and I am posting it later than expected because it took me a longer time then I had planned to choose a winner. It really came down to which one was the best OVERALL, with an emphasis on the PSU, CPU, GPU, and some other assorted factors. I really had a difficult time limiting it beyond four of the options, but at the end of the day, I went with this build list: http://pcpartpicker.com/p/ccRjmG
Congratulations to Barnabus. At first, I thought the 250 HHD was a deal breaker. But it has the 6500 Skylake i5 and the 380x, and comes in at under $650, something a lot of you tried to take advantage of. I allowed all builds under $680 to qualify. It also has a nice PSU. It was, at the end of the day, the best of all worlds.
Feel free to continue to submit builds if you feel you could do better. I congratulate everyone who attempted it, and hope you have a good rest of the day.
I am only looking at actual computer builds, and am willing to go as far as $650. GPU required to be 3-4 Gb vram. No PowerColor brand. ATX or Micro ATX. semi-Modular or Full is reccommended. NZXT S340 is required. Try as hard as you can to fit as much power in it as you can!!! Will try to respond to all posts, and at the end of Sunday/ Monday the 10-11. If you post after this point I will still definitely consider it and will respond if I need to (NOT a bad thing, actually a good thing). Good LUCK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
