Moving on up! From Sandy Bridge to Skylake -- Opinions Wanted

Hi Folks,

I'm replacing my old Sandy Bridge build with a new Skylake build. I'm interested to hear your thoughts on this build: http://pcpartpicker.com/list/P4FkJV

The items marked $0 are items I'm carrying over from my Sandy Bridge PC. The custom prices are in line with what I can get at my local Micro Center.

Thanks, Jonathan

That SSD config is a little ****** up for my tastes but other than that you're A-ok

I did a bit more research. I'm going to forego the NVME drive and use a slower 1TB SSD as my storage drive with the Samsung 840 Pro as my OS drive. I also changed the cooler to something less expensive to buy headroom for a better processor. Here's the updated build: http://pcpartpicker.com/list/Kr734C
