So here's the build so far: http://uk.pcpartpicker.com/user/IG007PL/saved/#view=JY3LrH
I am going to use it for video editing as well as gaming.
For the video editing side, I need a large HDD so there is the 3TB green drive and the SSD for OS and 16GB of ram since that should be enough for Video editing software like Sony Vegas and After Effects.
For the gaming side I want to wait for the Pascal GPU's to come out and get the equivalent of the 970, so I need a recommendation for a good GPU that will be able to play CS:GO at a pretty reasonable framerate, a table 60 would be fine. I was thinking about a GTX 960, what do you guys think ?
For the motherboard, I need a white and black board since that's the theme of the build. I would like a pretty good rear I/O . I'm thinking about the MSI Krait Z170 or an Asus A170-A what are your thoughts about these ?
Last thing I need a cooler. Since I don't think that I will overclock very soon (I'm new to pc building and I don't want to go that far yet) I just want something that will match the White and Black theme. I would highly prefer a low profile cooler and as long as it performs a bit better than a stock cooler I am mostly going for aesthetics.
Thank you for all the help and feedback !
