Assumed you didn't need peripherals, included windows 10 (Replace with whatever os you prefer) I recommend you wait a couple of months for pascal (If you need a gpu, assumed this was a gaming build)

Black/white colour scheme cuz why not

Here is a another $1000.00 option, I left out an after market CPU cooler so I could fit a GTX 980 video card in the build, however you can easily add an after market cpu cooler down the road when you feel like BCLK over clocking this CPU,for now the the stock cooler is fine. A video card is a much more expensive item to swap out. Just my opinion. Anyway have a look and all the best with your build!

BCLK over clock video here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MrfTcXQlsbs

So no reason to spend the extra money on a K series CPU.
